Serving the Needs of Employees

Lawyer Dan A. Atkerson takes great pride in providing individualized service to clients throughout the legal process.

Featured Practice Areas

Unwanted sexual advances can create a hostile and intimidating work environment. Many employees are scared to speak out against unwanted sexual advances because they are afraid of retaliation and other negative consequences. An employment lawyer can determine if you have a case so you can hold the responsible party accountable and potentially protect future victims.

Although most employers are not required to provide severance packages to former employees, you may still need a lawyer if your employer breached their severance agreement or if the severance agreement contains unfair restrictions that could jeopardize your future employment. If you are owed a severance package, our attorney can help you negotiate a favorable resolution.

Texas is an at-will employment state, meaning that an employer can legally dismiss you at any time. But if you feel that you were wrongfully discharged because of your gender, race, age, or disability, you may need an employment lawyer on your side. Dan Atkerson can examine the details behind your dismissal and determine whether you have a case.

Federal law protects all employees from sexual and racial discrimination in the workplace. Unfortunately, many employers still discriminate based on age, disabilities, race, gender, gender identity, pregnancy, religion, sexual orientation, and national origin. If you feel that you are being treated differently based on any of these protected classes, we can help.
