Liebert Cassidy Whitmore has had the privilege of representing public safety agencies for 30 years, proudly earning the trust and respect of several generations of police chiefs, sheriffs, and fire chiefs. LCW appreciates the emergency nature of employment issues in the public safety context. Our attorneys are always available to provide prompt and expert consultation on issues from administrative leave to interrogations to discipline.
We literally "wrote the book," having authored the CPER Pocket Guides on the Public Safety Officers Procedural Bill of Rights Act (POBR) and the Firefighters Procedural Bill of Rights Act (FBOR) respectively. Our appellate victories, some of which are mentioned below, have helped shaped the way that public safety agencies conduct labor and employment relations on a daily basis.
LCW remains on the cutting edge, regularly publishing articles and presenting workshops regarding labor and employment law issues affecting public safety agencies. We bring our collective legal expertise and practical experience to bear in our clients' cases, from beginning to end.
We routinely review disciplinary investigations to identify the strengths and weaknesses for our clients. We help clients identify appropriate disciplinary measures, and vigorously prosecute ensuing disciplinary appeals. We also handle any related litigation. Indeed, we have skillfully handled hundreds of such cases over three decades.
