Employment-related disputes can be complicated, stressful, and unpredictable. Davis Rothwell attorneys are skilled in employment discrimination defense counsel for Northwest employers. We understand the risks and exposure our clients face – and we provide early case evaluation, mediation, negotiation, and resolution where appropriate.

We represent employers in claims alleging unlawful termination and hostile work environment – including cases alleging discrimination, retaliation, and failure to accommodate.

Because employment law is an emerging and constantly evolving area, we stay on the cutting edge of all legal developments to provide our clients with the most up-to-date information. Our employment law attorneys provide personalized service and attention, working closely with our clients to quickly and effectively resolve employment law issues.
