Our employment practice is led by Marc J. Smith and provides experienced representation of both management and individuals in a broad range of employment law and litigation matters throughout the state of Maryland and the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

We represent private sector employees and executives, federal and state employees and a number of regional employers in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, including banks, financial service firms, government contractors, medical and dental practices, automobile dealerships and retail concerns. We provide advice to clients with respect to nearly every aspect of the employment relationship, including issues relating to:

  • Discrimination (including race, gender, age and disability discrimination)
  • Harassment, including sexual harassment
  • Hiring, termination and discipline
  • Family and medical leave
  • Wage and hour matters (including overtime and commission issues)

  • Employment agreements

We have substantial experience negotiating and drafting executive, employment and severance agreements, employee handbooks and other employment-related documents. Our attorneys have also litigated hundreds of cases and have successfully defended and pursued a diverse array of employment claims in both the state and federal court systems, in arbitration and at the administrative level on issues involving:

  • Family and medical leave
  • Unpaid wages, overtime and commissions
  • Executive and employment agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Wrongful discharge
  • Federal sector claims

Our employment practice also includes issues relating to the Military Selective Service Act. The firm has represented a significant number of individuals who have failed to register with the Selective Service. Most of these cases involve federal employees or applicants for federal positions who find themselves ineligible for federal service due to their failure to register with the Selective Service. More information about this practice area is set forth within the description of our areas of practice and in Marc J. Smith's Selective Service Blog.
