Ms. Glickson works with employers of all sizes, from national companies with offices in multiple states, to small businesses, including medical practices, private educational institutions, mortgage companies, restaurants, IT consulting firms, and hospitality companies, to name a few.
As a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and litigator trained by large, prominent law firms, Ms. Glickson offers employers the combination of experience, skill, and efficiency that suits their needs. Ms. Glickson has a track record of success with complex cases and a reputation for implementing smart, cost-effective strategies to defend employment issues with skill and success. Ms. Glickson believes in evaluating employment matters at the early stages. Employers need to know whether a situation has the potential to expose them to significant liability, or whether the circumstances at issue are more innocuous.
Personnel matters that are not handled skillfully at the early stages can grow into larger problems, monopolizing the time and resources of a business unnecessarily. Ms. Glickson will work with your business so that budding employment disputes are addressed appropriately. Whether it's a termination, a complaint of discrimination, or a wage issues, carefully addressing employment matters at the early stages can save a business from incurring considerable costs down the road.
Employment matters arise in any business on a regular basis. Employers can often benefit from the guidance of an experienced employment attorney to help them apply the myriad state and federal workplace laws. Ms. Glickson provides her clients with responsive, thoughtful guidance on any employment matter that affects her clients' business.
Ms. Glickson also helps businesses minimize their legal exposure by creating well-crafted employment-related documents for her clients, such as employment agreements, consulting (independent contractor) agreements, offer letters, termination letters, severance agreements, employee handbooks, etc.

Litigation costs can get out of hand in the blink of an eye. Employers who want to defend against claims often find themselves having invested far more in litigating a case than the case is worth, with no end in sight.
Ms. Glickson's approach is distinguished from that of other attorneys by her practice of early evaluation and cost-benefit analysis of cases. Ms. Glickson believes in the importance of developing a deliberate plan for litigation. For example, some cases should be settled early, before discovery. Some cases have a high likelihood of being won with a motion filed with the Court. Each case is different, but most cases are capable of being assessed at the early stages. By being proactive in this way, Ms. Glickson helps her clients to understand the purpose and risks of the steps taken within the case.
