Employment Attorney Cincinnati, Ohio
Federal and state laws give employees and job applicants in Ohio many rights to demand fair pay and equal treatment. Those same laws, like the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, also require employers to respect workers’ rights.
How Do I Know If I Need a Cincinnati Employment Attorney?
Too often, employers violate these laws. The result is that employees do not get paid for all the hours they work or don’t get paid overtime for all hours worked over 40 hours per week. They suffer from abuse, discrimination, and harassment. They get demoted or lose their jobs for reasons that have nothing to do with their own performance or the financial circumstances of the company. Some are even placed in physical danger from bullying and assaults.
When such things happen in southeast Ohio, it is time to consult with an employment lawyer in Cincinnati, Ohio. Speaking with a Cincinnati employment attorney who knows the law and has experience holding employers accountable for mistreating workers will clarify legal options and explain the steps that can be taken to receive back pay and other forms of compensation.
Enlisting the help of a lawyer who only represents employees also levels the playing field. Employers will have their own legal team whose job it is to defend the company and attempt to prevent the worker from receiving a settlement or winning a lawsuit.

Rachel Friedmann of the Friedman Firm was my attorney for a very recent legal matter. I would highly recommend Rachel based on her legal knowledge, her honest appraisal of the matter and expected outcomes, her open communication and timely responses to my questions and the matter itself, and her steadfastness in dealing with the opposing counsel until a final agreement was reached.
Rachel and her staff went over and above the call of duty to help me achieve fiscal resolution to my legal issue. She wasn’t always available to talk but was always responsive via text and email when in court out of the office and even on vacation. I feel she earned her percentage cut.
Couldn’t be happier with the representation I received from Jamie Bailey on my civil litigation case. She worked tirelessly to resolve the case and in the end negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for everything Friedman law firm.

The Friedmann Firm (specifically Pete Friedmann) represented me through what seemed like a never ending employment discrimination suit. The suit was filed just before Covid shut everything down in 2020. Add to that a former employer who refused to admit fault. In spite of all of that, Pete stood resolute in his representation of me and working for the best outcome for me. We ended up settling prior to trial and I was more than satisfied with the results. Pete was always available to answer questions and reassure me throughout this process. I highly recommend The Friedmann Firm!
Pete Friedmann and his firm are fantastic. He represented me for more than a year going through a suit with a previous employer. He walked me through every step of the process and was always quick to respond to any questions I had. My settlement came in and we parted ways with both sides being pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend the Friedmann firm and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future if the need arose. Thank you, Pete!
