The Insight To Help Clients Understand And Exercise Their Rights

At Formisano & Company, we are a dedicated voice for workers facing illegal discrimination, harassment, employer retaliation or breach of their employment contract. Our knowledgeable attorneys translate complex state and federal laws, helping our clients understand their rights. As aggressive, yet practical litigators, we help our clients reach settlements that are both efficient and cost-effective whenever possible.
