Employment Law (for the Employee)
Linda spent many years with Kansas City’s top employment law firm defending employers against wrongful termination and discrimination lawsuits. She loves to turn that experience around now and protect the rights of employees who have been wrongfully terminated, discriminated against, wrongfully pursued over Covenants-Not-To-Compete, and/or alleged trade secret violations. Linda has had tremendous success in obtaining compensation for damages suffered as a result of discrimination or wrongful termination, and she has been able to free many clients from the restrictive and unfair confines of Covenants-not-to-compete. She has also successfully freed numerous clients from false accusations of misuse or retention of trade-secrets following employment termination.
Dickens Law has a great passion for protecting and enforcing YOUR rights—your right to be treated fairly, to be compensated fairly, to be free from unfair covenants not-to-compete, free from unfair trade secret accusations, and free from dangers in the workplace. Dickens Law understands that the underlying purpose for their work is YOUR livelihood, family, peace of mind, health, and the financial security you have earned. For many, this is about protecting YOUR right to continue in your chosen profession without unfair interruption.
Linda has had tremendous success freeing countless clients from the restrictions of unfair covenants-not-to-compete, including doctors, financial executives, corporate executives, banking executives, sales and marketing executives, engineers, service providers and high-end hair stylists and designers.
Linda has also exposed fraudulent and unfair employment practices, successfully defeating unfair employers in Kansas and Missouri State and Federal Courts, before the National Labor Relations Board, the EEOC, and Missouri’s Commission on Human Rights, and the Kansas Human Rights Commission. Linda’s efforts have produced substantial compensation for clients as well as the exposure of crimes, state and federal labor law violations, EPA violations, and tax-fraud by unfair employers.
We would be honored to protect YOUR rights, health, and future, and we will do so with power and passion for you and your family.
Employment Law (for the Employer)
Linda spent many years with Kansas City’s top employment law firm defending employers against wrongful termination and discrimination lawsuits, as well as injunctive enforcement of Covenants-not-to-compete and Confidentiality provisions for the protection of trade secrets. She believes strongly that employers need protection for their rights to hire and fire, to be free from frivolous lawsuits, to protect their trade secrets and confidential information, and to obtain the fullest legal protection available in the form of protective covenants such as covenants-not-to-compete.
As a business owner, YOU are the owner of your trade secrets, processes, formulations of data, accounting procedures, customer lists, marketing strategies, and much much more. You are entitled to protect yourself against an employee who might leave your company, set up shop down the street (or internet), and steal your customers or duplicate your processes or strategies. Dickens Law has the most cutting edge legal strategies available for securing full legal protection for these areas and more, to the fullest extent of the law, so you can protect what you have built, thereby protecting your company, your assets, your future, and your legacy.
