Pappas O'Connor P.C. was formed with a core mission to provide each Firm client with counsel and representation designed to achieve a desired result for the issue at hand. The Firm represents clients in all facets of the employer-employee relationship with each of the Firm’s principals having extensive experience in the various workplace issues that arise on a day-to-day basis.

Our attorneys are knowledgeable regarding federal, state and local civil rights and anti-discrimination laws and have effectively represented employees and employers in matters arising under these laws. Clients rely on Firm attorneys to negotiate and enforce executive employment agreements, restrictive covenants and separation agreements. Firm attorneys have represented individual employers and employer-associations in traditional labor matters, including union organizing efforts, collective bargaining, unfair labor practice proceedings and grievance-arbitration matters. Firm attorneys have also provided employee representation in employment discrimination matters and executive severance agreements and contracts. Having the perspective of both aspects of the employment rights field, each attorney brings to the individual client a wealth of knowledge and a realistic assessment of the risks of litigation and the knowledge of the opposition’s thinking.
