Without question, the Covid pandemic upended normalcy. As an associate at Aleshire & Wynder, Mr. Gonzalez can provide effective legal strategies and assistance on best practices to:
- Reduce risk
- Avoid litigation
- Prevent or mitigate employment claims based on state and federal laws and regulations
- Maintain a productive and engaged workforce
These skills are essential, because the ever-changing workplace laws and regulations makes any aspect of public law increasingly complex and more difficult to navigate—especially in a Covid-19 world.
However, when litigation is necessary, he will vigorously pursue successful outcomes in court.
