Our labor law attorneys represent a wide array of labor unions at the local and national level. We negotiate collective bargaining agreements on behalf of unions in a variety of industries, including aviation, ground transportation, manufacturing, health care and the public sector. We enforce those contracts in arbitration and federal and state court and assist our union clients with organizing, communications, membership education, legislation and regulatory compliance.
The firm’s national wage and hour/overtime practice is dedicated to the fundamental principle that working people should be properly paid for all of their labor. We represent employees in individual and class action litigation. Our attorneys have recovered wages for tens of thousands of employees who have been unlawfully denied their right to overtime pay. We have further committed ourselves to the effort to reform federal and state law so that employees received the wages they are owed and violators are held accountable.
Our firm’s worker’s compensation section has successfully assisted tens of thousands of injured employees, in recovering workers’ compensation benefits. Workplace related injuries and illnesses can have a devastating consequence for an employee. Our workers’ compensation attorneys represent clients throughout the entire litigation process and also work with other highly-skilled workers’ compensation attorneys in all fifty states.
We manage one of the largest and most successful Social Security Disability Insurance practices in the United States. A disability may permanently prevent an individual from performing any work. Our Social Security attorneys have won disability awards for tens of thousands of clients and have been recognized for their professionalism and compassion by their fellow practitioners across the nation.
Barkan Meizlish, LLP represents individuals in serious personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Our trial attorneys have been handling complex torts for decades. Despite changes in the law that have made it more difficult for victims to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled, our attorneys continue to succeed in obtaining judgements and compensation for those who have been injured by the negligence of others.
