Our clients include employees who are disabled, who work in a hostile workplace, who are subject to discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and unpaid overtime claims, or who suffer from illnesses such as cancer. Some of these employees filed for disability benefits or family leave but instead experienced harassment, discrimination, and retaliation from their employers for making employment claims. Some of our clients suffered sexual harassment and wrongful termination or were denied funds to which they were entitled. Many of our clients felt they stood no chance against a big company, but we helped many prevail despite the odds. Unpaid wages, commissions or overtime pay, severance negotiation, discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, or the denial of benefits or family leave are but a few of the situations we resolve for the clients of our law firm.

Our Dallas Labor and Employment Lawyers Understand Texas and Federal Statutes

Our attorneys know the federal and Texas state labor laws that protect employees. Through experience, our Texas employment lawyers know which statutes apply to each situation to achieve the desired outcome on employment claims. Beyond the labor laws, we understand recent judicial decisions that may affect how a claim should be pursued. We work with local and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), to name a few. If you have a question about any of these agencies, call us.

Put Our Experience and Knowledge of the Labor and Employment Law System
to Work for You

The lawyers at our law firm have decades of experience defending employees whose rights were abused or ignored by their employers. Many labor and employment law claims must first be filed with either the EEOC and/or the TWC. This filing must occur within a certain time limit to preserve the right to file a lawsuit. There are other restrictions. For example, your employer must employ at least 15 employees before it can be liable for many types of discrimination. Or that the business is required to employ at least 20 workers before it can be liable for an age discrimination claim. After your claim is reviewed, you might receive a Notice of Right to Sue. This Notice allows you to proceed with a lawsuit if you wish. In some cases, our Texas lawyers can represent you through the EEOC or TWC process.

Our Dallas Employment Lawyers Can Also Help With
Employee Benefits Litigation

The laws governing employee benefits are distinct from those governing the course of joining, rising through the ranks, and leaving an employer. Texas insurance laws and the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) give rights to employees who are entitled to employment benefits. Employee benefits are always being expanded or contracted, depending upon many factors. The employment lawyers in our Dallas law firm may be able to help you with employee benefits that were denied or withdrawn illegally by an employer. If you have a claim that was denied or ignored, contact Kilgore & Kilgore. We have helped many people get the benefits they were denied.

Testimonials
“In my manager role, I reported some unethical behavior of my supervisor to the HR manager, but the problem was not addressed. So, I took the matter to Corporate. A different supervisor was assigned who made work miserable for me. Then, he terminated me. I’d been with that employer for 20 years and received high performance metrics. I reached out to Bob Goodman. He told me of the best course of action then worked diligently to negotiate my severance package. I had a lot of questions along the way. Bob was responsive, even after hours and on weekends. He was compassionate, professional and easy to speak with. I highly recommend Bob Goodman and Kilgore & Kilgore.”
– DM, 2018, Employment Retaliation, Wrongful Termination, Severance Package

“I was very pleased with the professionalism and knowledge of Ted Anderson and his team. He led me through a most difficult time. Ted Anderson was available to answer my questions even after normal business hours. He listened, set the best course of action, and made sure I was informed along the way. I would highly recommend Ted and his team to anyone in a legal dispute.”
– SS, Employment Agreement, 2017

“I searched online for an attorney and found Bob Goodman. He called me to his office and I told him about my problem. He said there a way we can go forward with a discrimination case against an employer. Bob Goodman was polite, kind, intelligent, and informative. He described the points of my legal argument and got to work immediately. He encouraged me to hang in there for more than a year. He worked for the maximum benefit. He told me what he would do and he did it. I would recommend him.”
– RM, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Employment Discrimination, 2016

“Thank you for taking my case and believing in me. A great deal of my recovery from everything that happened is a direct result of being given the opportunity to fight the good fight. Thank you for the friendship, strength and incredible legal representation.”
