Experience. Strength. Wisdom. Success.

I help clients avoid, resolve or litigate workplace disputes involving discrimination, harassment and wrongful termination. I also counsel and represent both employers and employees regarding employment contracts, wage and hour issues, non-competition agreements, trade secrets/intellectual property issues, termination, separation agreements and severance packages. I help employers understand applicable employment law and implement appropriate policies and practices.

I strive to discern the economic and legal realities and the interpersonal dynamics that can influence or determine employment situations. Each client is unique. Each situation is unique. I bring to bear over 37 years of experience to help forge the best possible results for my clients.

Seasoned Trial Lawyer

My undergraduate degree is in economics from University of Washington, and my law degree is from University of California, Berkeley. I have served as Chief Author of the Employment Discrimination section of the Washington Lawyers Practice Manual, and am frequently requested to lecture about employment law issues at legal education seminars.

I am licensed to practice law in state and federal courts in Washington, and in Oregon. From my office in downtown Seattle I counsel and represent clients throughout Washington and Oregon.

For the convenience of our clients, we offer services in both English and Spanish. Se habla español, (866) 802-9832. Pregunte por Rosa Gallagher.

I needed an attorney who could support me in the process of leaving my previous place of employment. Another law firm referred us to Attorney Mark Shepherd of Pivotal Law Group. Mr. Shepherd made the entire termination process run smoothly, so I could continue looking for other means of employment and continue with my doctoral studies. Mark worked efficiently and effectively to get me a great result. I highly recommend anyone to give this law firm a try, since I know I will be coming back to Mark and “Pivotal Law Group” for many years to come!
