The Fosbinder Law firm was started in 1999 in recognition of the need for attorneys who will fight for the employees of North Carolina. What sets us apart from other firms is our depth of experience with employment issues and our capacity to successfully wage the “David v. Goliath” fight that is required to win employment law cases.
We are a boutique employment, whistleblower and civil rights firm specializing in the representation of plaintiffs in the areas of discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and disability law. We have been consistently recognized as leading employment lawyers in North Carolina and the City of Charlotte, and repeatedly appear on list of Super Lawyers, U.S. News’ Best Lawyers, and the top professionals in Charlotte Magazine.
One of the main distinctions between our firm and others in Charlotte is the substantial courtroom experience we have. While we attempt to successfully resolve every claim through mediation and other voluntary means available, we hold firm to the belief that there are times when a case needs to be brought to court. Within the Charlotte legal community, our reputation is of aggressive litigators who will pursue claims to full resolution in federal and state courts. Our Cases in the News are representative examples of cases our firm has successfully handled in the past. Whether it was arguing at the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals or attending a lengthy and complex arbitration proceeding, our firm fought meticulously for the rights of our clients.
Inevitably, the employers’ side has more resources, more attorneys, and more money—yet we often have prevailed for our employee clients, winning six figure verdicts and arbitration awards, as well as numerous settlements in excess of $1 million dollars. Our law firm is proud of our long history of successful results for our clients.
