Eric Magnelli’s practice is designed and implemented to avoid lawsuits, allowing his client’s to devote their time and energies on their business and family. However, when lesser means have failed or cannot reasonably be employed, Eric’s extensive experience as a trial lawyer protects his clients’ interests with the same vigor and resolve that made him a Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps Infantry.

Eric concentrates his practice on labor and employment matters and a broad range of complex commercial litigation, construction disputes and contract interpretation. He counsels, investigates and litigates a wide range of labor and employment matters such as discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing, discipline and discharge, layoffs, collective bargaining agreements, reasonable accommodations, compliance with state and federal family and medical leave laws, applicable wage and hour laws, ERISA and OSHA regulations and also conducts training in these areas for executives, directors, managers, supervisors, and employees.  Eric drafts and provides advice on employment contracts, employment manuals, personnel policies and procedures, restrictive covenants, and severance agreements.
