Areas of Practice

Bill has more than 30 years of experience as an advisor, counselor and advocate, helping clients navigate the complex and often times counterintuitive legal issues that arise in the workplace.

Employment Law

Over time, the American workplace has become highly regulated. If not well-managed, it can be a platform for expensive, energy-sapping and time-consuming litigation. Every business should have a responsive, knowledgeable and practiced employment law attorney to assist in navigating workplace issue and concerns before they became full-fledged disputes and lawsuits. Rare is the employee lawsuit that could not have been avoided by timely legal advice and effective communication.

At Avisen Legal, we bring a “been there, done that” savvy to workplace issues that goes beyond mere knowledge of statutes, regulations and case law affecting the employment relationship. We understand the human element, as well. While we have not seen everything that can go wrong the workplace, we have seen most of it and our advice is informed by those experiences. We serve our clients as advisors, negotiators, investigators, advocates and peacemakers.
