Labor and Employment Law

The Law Firm of Mahoney, Silverman & Cross has experience in Employment Law representing both employers and employees.  Contact Bryan Wellner.


Mahoney, Silverman & Cross has helped numerous public and private organizations in all areas of labor and employment law.  We jointly work with our employer clients in all stages of the employment relationship including, hiring, collective bargaining, grievance arbitrations, disciplinary issues, evaluations, and terminations.  We believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Therefore, we regularly help our employer clients set up employment policies that are in compliance with state and federal laws.  We don’t just provide policies, but also deliver customized training for our clients in many policy areas including conducting internal investigations, evaluating and disciplining performance, and legal compliance. Our attorneys regularly act as independent investigators for harassment or misconduct investigations.  Sometimes litigation is unavoidable.  When that happens, we aggressively defend our employment clients before state, federal, and administrative tribunals. Mahoney, Silverman & Cross can advise you in ending the relationship with an employee and help you to settle Severance Disputes.


If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated, Mahoney, Silverman & Cross can help you in this matter – whether it is because you have a Whistleblower claim, or some other reason such as age, gender, sexual harassment, or race discrimination.  If your employer has given you an employment separation and release agreement, our attorneys will help walk you through the documentation and negotiation process with your employer.

Mahoney, Silverman & Cross can help you understand your rights and remedies that are available to you.
