There are hundreds of attorneys that practice employment and labor law in Northeast Ohio. Crain’s Business News undertook an independent and thorough process to identify the top 25 of those employment attorneys. Crain’s Business News, which is a leading source of business news, analysis, and commentary, started the process by taking nominations for those attorneys in the practice, vetting the nominations through editorial review, and then interviewing the finalists.
Spitz, The Employee’s Law Firm is proud to announce that our Managing Partner, Brian Spitz was not only chosen for this select group but also that he is the only attorney on the list who works at a firm dedicated exclusively to employee’s rights and never represents employers. Here’s what Crain’s had to say in part about Brian:
Trial attorney Brian Spitz has brought over 40 trials to verdict, a track record that includes winning million-dollar cases for his clients.
Spitz’s dedication to employee rights has helped him build the third-largest firm in the U.S. dedicated to this work – a commitment now allowing him to manage a team of attorneys in Beachwood, Columbus, Toledo, and Cincinnati, along with Detroit; Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky; and Raleigh, North Carolina.
Spitz, among the 5% of lawyers nationwide to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, previously collaborated with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act.
While awards are nice, Spitz said it is not about the recognition: “These types of accolades end up helping our clients. Defendant-employers and employment defense attorneys know that they will be facing a firm that has the skill, resources, experience, and moxie to try cases. They know that we win cases and juries have awarded us millions of dollars. That creates additional leverage that pushes employers to settle cases with us.”
Moreover, most employees wrongly assume that getting a better quality employment discrimination attorney will cost them more. While many firms will charge employees a consultation fee; charge them an hourly rate with a retainer payment; and/or makes their clients pay the costs of litigation as the filing fees and depositions costs come due – not at Spitz! We never ask our clients to pay anything out of pocket. We only get paid our fee and reimbursed for our costs when we get our clients paid. Why? Because Spitz is willing to bet its fees on its ability to win and recover.
In the end, there is only one name in employee’s rights litigation: Spitz.
