Employment Law Attorney

At FitzPatrick & Associates, our comprehensive employment law practice touches on all matters related to employment discrimination, employees’ rights, wrongful termination, and employment litigation.

Experienced Employment Law Representation.

When your livelihood is threatened, it’s normal to experience a range of emotions. How will you pay your bills if you’re fired? Should you even say anything at all? Will this ruin future prospects in your industry?

No one should ever feel like they have to compromise their rights just to pay their bills or provide for their family. You deserve to work in a fair, supportive environment without fear of harassment, retaliation, or a violation of your rights as a person and a worker.

Protect Your Important Rights

In the U.S., workers in all industries are protected by state and federal laws that guarantee certain wages, safe working conditions, and freedom from abuse in the workplace.

Unfortunately, workers’ rights are violated far too often. Many employees keep silent because they fear a supervisor or an employer will threaten them or otherwise retaliate if they speak up about mistreatment or unfair policies. This is wrong, and it’s why attorney, Christopher FitzPatrick has dedicated his career to helping workers have a voice.

At FitzPatrick & Associates we assist employees in the following employment-related matters:

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Wage and hour violations
  • Misclassification of workers
  • Wrongful termination
  • Title VII cases
  • Workplace discrimination
  • EEOC cases
  • Employment policies
  • Non-compete agreements
  • ERISA and retirement cases

Mr. FitzPatrick also assists employers from a variety of industries in preparing sound, reasonable employment policies and practices that comply with the law and clearly set forth the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee.

Probate, Wills & Trusts Attorneys

Few people like to think about incapacity or death. Most of us have a natural aversion to contemplating illness or our own demise. This is normal, but avoiding these subjects is a big mistake that can hurt your family and your own financial security both now and in your golden years.

Smart, Focused Estate Planning

At FitzPatrick & Associates, we help families, individuals, and business owners achieve their financial and retirement goals. Whether you need a basic will, or you require a comprehensive estate plan that protects your business as well as your personal assets, estate planning is about so much more than simply giving stuff away when you die.

Our personalized approach to estate planning puts the focus squarely on you. What are your goals? What kind of lifestyle do you want to lead when you retire? What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind for your kids and your loved ones? We work closely with our clients to make sure their estate plan protects what they have worked hard to build.

Probate Solutions for Individuals and Families

For most people, probate is an overwhelming and somewhat confusing concept. With an experienced Wills and Trusts Attorney on your side, it doesn’t have to be either of those things. As a litigator licensed in both Maryland and Washington, D.C., attorney, Christopher M. FitzPatrick brings a wealth of experience to the table. He helps clients in the following probate matters:

  • Probate administration. Wrapping up a decedent’s final affairs and settling an estate requires a great deal of time and commitment. Many people are unprepared for the meticulous process involved in inventorying an estate’s assets. Mr. FitzPatrick helps clients through each step of the estate administration process, giving family members peace of mind and time to grieve without the burdens of trying to handle an estate on their own.
  • Estate litigation. A contested will or disputes over an estate can quickly deplete an estate’s assets. There are usually no winners in these types of cases, therefore it is important to have legal representation right from the onset of a contested will with another family member or beneficiary.

Car Accident Lawyer

When people act negligently behind the wheel, they can destroy lives. Car accidents happen for any number of reasons: a driver who worked a double shift and didn’t get enough sleep, a drunk driver who decided to drive after one too many drinks, a motorist who glanced down at a text, or just someone not paying attention.

At FitzPatrick & Associates, we handle personal injury claims on behalf of people who have been hurt in all kinds of transportation accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents. We also assist families who have lost a loved one in a motor vehicle collision.

How We Fight for You

After a car accident, the insurance company immediately begins working hard to minimize the value of your claim or even deny it completely. This is something they go to great lengths to hide from the public and their policyholders.

You pay for insurance because you count on it to be there when you need it. Finding out an insurance company is trying to undermine your claim is very disturbing when you are recovering from personal injuries caused by another driver’s negligence.

This is why it’s so important to have an experienced, aggressive car accident lawyer on your side. You simply can’t afford to go without skilled legal representation. Your health, your future, and your financial well-being are far too important.

Christopher M. FitzPatrick has taken on large insurance companies throughout his legal career. Mr. FitzPatrick will work tirelessly to get his respective clients and their families the compensation they need to reclaim their lives and move on after a car accident.
