Seeking Employment Counsel?


For more than thirty years Douglas Winston has provided advice and counsel to employees encountering workplace wrongs.  Recognizing workplace wrongs exact a tremendous toll on employees and their families, he has skillfully and successfully obtained redress for employees in a variety of matters.  

The successful resolution of an employment claim requires an analysis of competing interests and a keen understanding of labor law.  One must consider an employee's interest in earning income through labor and an employer's interests in operating a profitable business.  An attorney experienced in resolving employment claims can assist you in determining when an employment action in the face of these competing interests has gone beyond that which is legitimate or permitted by existing law.

Experience Matters


Although Counselor Winston has successfully obtained six figure sums on behalf of clients in a variety of cases, ranging from unlawful discharges to catastrophic injuries and death, he cannot guarantee a comparable figure for your matter. There are a number of factors which impact the value of any particular case. The experience and knowledge of counsel, however, is your greatest weapon in securing a favorable outcome.

What Motivates An Employment Attorney Seeking Justice?

A willingness to represent employees seeking redress for workplace wrongs must be motivated by something other than counsel's financial interest. To successfully advance the interest of employees requires an appreciation for labor's value. The following comments on labor's value provide a few thoughts that motivate Counselor Winston in providing committed representation for those seeking redress for workplace wrongs.


"Without labor nothing prospers."  Sophocles.


"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed.  Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."  Abraham Lincoln's First Annual Message to Congress, December 3, 1861.


"I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living."  John D. Rockefeller.


"Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less.  It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those that prefer leisure over work, or seek the pleasures of riches and fame.  Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things - some celebrated, but more often men and women obscure in their labor - who have carried us up the long rugged path towards prosperity and freedom." Barack Obama, Inaugural Address, January 20, 2009.
