Our experienced Tennessee employment and commerce law attorneys will fight to protect your rights.

About Us

At the Employment and Commerce Law Group, employment law is all we do. Unlike those Wal-Mart law firms that will represent you in a car accident, handle your DUI, and write your will all in one stop, we have chosen to focus our practice on this one area. And we excel at it.

Our extensive experience and in-depth knowledge in all matters related to employment law put us ahead of the curve in handling these claims from the get go. We understand the frustration and hopelessness employees sometimes face when they find themselves in an unfair and potentially illegal work environment. Our Nashville employment law firm is dedicated to helping workers understand and enforce their rights.

Trusted Tennessee Employment Lawyers

“I needed an attorney for advice and direction in a situation concerning a former employer. After a consultation with Brandon Hall, it was a no-brainer. He was knowledgeable about all things concerning employee rights and wage classifications. This was a very difficult time for my wife and myself. Brandon made things very simple and gave us great confidence. Needless to say, the outcome of our case was very satisfactory.”

Dedicated to the Hardworking
People of Our Community

At the Employment and Commerce Law Group, we believe that being a good business means being a good neighbor. That’s why we take an active role in giving back to the communities where our attorneys live and work. Some of the activities and events our firm is proud to support include:

  • Steps of Success 5K, a race to raise money for scholarship and mentoring programs

Know Your Rights

Our jobs are a large part of each of our lives. Most Americans liken their occupations to their identity. It’s why when people ask us what we do, we tell them our occupation and not some other activity we may enjoy more.

Emotions surrounding losing a job are sometimes the same as the grief experienced when losing a loved one ─ we feel like we have lost our identity. Typical emotions experienced are denial, shock, sadness, anxiety, embarrassment, and anger. For this reason, it is important for people to stand up for their rights in the workplace. To do so effectively, you need strong legal representation from experienced employment law attorneys.

The more you understand your legal rights at your place of employment, the greater the likelihood of stopping the offending behavior and receiving just compensation for your losses as a result of the illegal activity. Damages you could be entitled to would include:

  • Reinstatement in your job
  • Payment for lost wages and benefits
  • Compensatory damages for the stress caused by the illegal activity
  • Your reasonable attorney fees and costs
  • In some cases, punitive damages aimed at punishing your employer

If you feel you have a valid claim against your employer, our skilled employment law attorneys are ready to discuss your case with you confidentially at no charge. Every case is different, so it is imperative that you get smart legal advice based on the facts of your particular case.

What to Expect in a Free Consultation

For many people, the decision to hire an employment law attorney is a stressful one. Especially if you have been wrongfully terminated, demoted, or otherwise fear that your job is in jeopardy, you may be hesitant to put extra pressure on the situation. The truth is: This is when you need a lawyer the most.

At the Employment and Commerce Law Group, our lawyers can meet with you for a free, no-obligation consultation where everything you say will be kept in confidence. During this initial meeting, here is what you can expect:

  • You will start by telling us your story. We would like to know as much detail as possible, such as the dates that certain things happened and who was involved. It may help to write out a timeline of events before you meet with us so you do not forget to tell us any important pieces of your story.
  • You can show us any evidence you have saved. For example, you may have emails, time cards, a calendar, or other paperwork that helps document what has been happening.
  • We will want to know the names and titles of anyone involved. This includes anyone who you believe was acting illegally, as well as any witnesses.
  • Our team will then outline your legal options for moving forward. We will explain what to expect for next steps, as well as what your goals are for resolving the case. When you leave our office, you should feel relieved knowing that your voice is being heard and that you now have a strong advocate fighting for you.
