Clear, Confident Help To Solve Your Legal Problems

Comprehensive Legal Support For First Responders

First responders – a broad category that includes jobs such as firefighters, police officers, EMS personnel, nurses, emergency dispatchers and doctors, as well as corrections officers – put their lives on the line every day to protect and serve our communities. These professionals encounter rapidly changing situations in their work environments that add an element of risk not found in other jobs. Making a perceived mistake can lead to internal investigations, license discipline, workplace discrimination, retaliation and more.

The physical and emotional toll of first-responder work can significantly impact the well-being of those who do it. The attorneys at our firm, Employment Law Professionals, are committed to providing representation to first responders. You’ve worked too hard to put your career at risk. Let us safeguard your legal interests.

Protecting Your Professional Standing

Our lawyers utilize their skills in conducting employment inquiries, engaging in employee advocacy and building solid defense strategies to protect first responders facing an internal investigation or adverse employment actions. We assert your rights at every step, ensuring your case is reviewed by the proper authorities.

We also defend first responders with processional licenses under attack. We can help you address licensure complaints from the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) (police and firefighters), the Oregon State Board of Nursing, the Oregon Medical Board (doctors) or the Oregon Health Authority (EMTs). Your license is your passport to engaging in your profession in Oregon, and we will seek to minimize the impact the complaint has on your career.

Protecting Your Rights As An Employee

First responders and care providers are employees first, no matter how high the stakes are each day in the workplace. Our attorneys can help you with any of the following matters:

  • Employment discrimination or hostile work environment claims
  • Disputes with your employer over wages, hours worked or being able to take leave to which you are entitled
  • Coordinating workers’ compensation injury coverage with civil litigation (when appropriate) to protect your job rights
  • Suffering retaliation for reporting unlawful activities as a whistleblower
  • Preparing Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Bureau of Labor complaints
  • Assisting you with appeals of unemployment benefits claims

At our firm, we believe that first responders and care providers deserve the highest quality legal representation, and we are committed to providing it. Our team of experienced attorneys is available to answer your questions and guide you through the legal process, every step of the way.
