Employment Law

Stone | Dean is committed to helping businesses meet the challenges posed by the rapidly changing and ever-expanding federal and state laws, regulations, and court decisions governing the workplace. While our attorneys aggressively represent our clients’ interests in litigation, we also work with our clients to implement strategies to avoid litigation, freeing them to focus on running and building successful businesses.

We strive to learn about our clients’ operations and needs so that we can provide “hands-on,” effective, and practical advice. This enables us to counsel clients on the law while respecting a company’s culture and the business demands of each workplace.
