THE SPENCER FIRM
Your Legal Rights Are My Business
The Spencer Firm, LLC was founded in 2010 on the principle that all clients would receive representation with compassion, commitment, and excellent communication. Our firm takes the approach that listening is the most important part of representation. We are here to listen and advise you on the best steps regarding your current legal needs.
For Individuals, the firm can assist with litigation, mediations, legal advice, review of severance agreements and similar employment related agreements. We have represented many individuals with wage and hour, discrimination based lawsuits, and unemployment hearings.
For Businesses, the firm focuses on helping them avoid disputes and minimize exposure when disputes occur. The firm represents businesses during the administrative process with the EEOC, Unemployment Offices, Maryland Civil Rights Commission, and DC Human Rights Commission. We also represent companies in state and Federal Court lawsuits. We also draft or review non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, employment agreements, manuals, and other employment related contracts and documents. The firm also provides advice to employers on general workplace issues to help avoid larger conflicts. We work with HR and general counsel for larger companies as well by providing a more in depth knowledge of employment laws.
WAGES AND OVERTIME
Wage and hour laws can be complex. You can call our firm to determine whether or not you are complying with the wage laws or if you are being compensated unfairly. Our free wage and hour consults allow us time to access your case and present solutions or proposals to correct the matter. We have settled various wage and hour claims representing both employers and employees. This gives us a unique perspective on each side. If the case cannot be resolved, we are prepared for litigation.
