Employment Law


Having the right employment law attorney by your side will not only provide you with peace of mind, but it can make the difference between a favorable resolution and further workplace troubles. Employment law is a complex area of law that evolves rapidly due to passage of new bills in Congress and the state legislatures in addition to court interpretations of existing laws. When evaluating Illinois employment cases, one must look beyond the complexities of the laws themselves and consider federal and state statutes. For these reasons, it is essential that Illinois businesses retain the assistance of an employment law attorney who is well-versed in the unique fields of federal and Illinois employment law. At Kreamer Law Group, LLC founding attorney John C. Kreamer has over twenty years of legal experience conducting bench and jury trials, in addition to arbitrations and mediations. No matter the work-related challenge you are faced with, Kreamer Law Group, LLC will provide you with in-depth knowledge and recommendations to address your specific employment law situation.
