The Wrongful Termination Lawyer

Your work not only helps pay the bills, it can be a source of friendships, purpose and meaning. That is why wrongful termination can be devastating. Without any fault of your own, you can find yourself cut off from friends, co-workers, not to mention a paycheck. Our team at The Spiggle Law Firm has the tools to help. We daily work with people wrongfully terminated. And we help them turn their professional lives around by using our deep knowledge of employment law. Our attorneys focus exclusively on working with employees who have been fired or are afraid that they might be. Whether it’s was termination based on whistleblowing, discrimination, retaliation, or sometimes just really bad situation, TSLF attorneys roll up their sleeves and get to work putting bad actor employers on their heels. It’s what we love to do.
