Summary

Losing a job for reasons that appear to be unreasonable or possibly illegal can be a devastating experience. Being sexually harassed, retaliated against, or wrongfully fired from a job can leave you justifiably confused, upset, and frightened about your future. What you need right now are answers, preferably from someone who knows exactly what you can do to protect yourself and your family. You need a true advocate. Someone who believes in protecting the rights of employees and who has the knowledge and experience to do so effectively. That's Where We Come In. We help people who have had their careers severely damaged or ended due to the illegal conduct of an employer. Chris McKinney is board certified in Labor & Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Our practice is focused on representing employees in overtime, sexual harassment, discriminatory discharge and whistleblower cases. This includes claims of age, sex, and disability discrimination, sexual harassment and breach of employment agreements. We also represent employees when they are sued for alleged non-compete violations or when they have been retaliated against for reporting discrimination or sexual harassment, for filing a workers' compensation claim, or for reporting corporate fraud or fraud against the government.
