EMPLOYMENT & IMMIGRATION LAW
Some bosses disrespect people who don't look
like them or didn't grow up in the same
neighborhood. Some bosses won't stand for
workers who work hard, play by the rules, and
expect the same of their boss. Some bosses
won't keep their written commitments.
I fight the boss in Court.
