Ms. Reis credits her prior experience of defending and counseling employers with her ability to assess clients and cases from the minute they enter our offices. This ability enables Ms. Reis to (1) anticipate, strategize, and maneuver around defense counsel tactics and (2) advocate more aggressively on behalf of her clients by being more proactive and anticipating the typical methods used by defense attorneys to stall litigation and/or otherwise intimidate their former employees.
Throughout her career, Ms. Reis has developed a personalized approach to the practice of law. This approach requires that she spend sufficient time with each client so as to understand his/her work environment, job duties, situation, needs, desires, drives, strengths, weaknesses, and damages. Accordingly, Ms. Reis’s professional relationships foster interaction and trust that enable open, frank and honest discussions that serve her clients’ needs in the most efficient, economic, personal, and direct manner.
Ms. Reis’s practice embraces all aspects of employment law, including sexual harassment, discrimination (relating to sex, age, race, sexual orientation, national origin, familial status, domestic partnership status, religion, impermissible gender stereotyping, sex gender identity or expression, pregnancy, disability, liability for services in the Armed Forces), retaliation, and claims relating to both state and federal leave acts and wage and hour laws.
In addition, Ms. Reis provides clients with advice on various employment matters, including, but not limited to, employees’ expectation of privacy in the workplace.
