About the Law Office of Bartina Edwards
The Law Office of Bartina Edwards focuses primarily on advisory and representation services for:
(1) businesses averaging less than $10 mm in annual revenue confronting emerging legal issues in an ever-changing landscape; and
(2) employees in the context of the variety of employment issues arising out of the workplace arrangement.
Colloquially, people often use the term, “navigating” to describe the assistance needed with a direction or route to take in unchartered or unknown territory. We understand those changes, collectively through our lived experiences. Having represented or served businesses and individuals for more than thirty years, collectively, our purpose is to help you navigate those changes as an advisor, counselor, and collaborator.
As to our approach, we are committed to the highest level of representation for all of our clients. We expect a lot from ourselves, and so in turn, we value your trust and transparency. We rely on both to ensure the best possible result to meet your legal needs and goals through our engagement.
From a client perspective, we are proud of the variety of our business clients. Some are small. Some are big, like 500 employees big. Some are startups. Some average $10 million in annual revenue. From that experience, we have a diverse perspective.
We leverage that perspective specifically and intentionally to better serve clients in the employment context. We believe, and our clients would agree, that employment law is complex and often misunderstood. We help employers and employees re-imagine the employment relationship through a proactive, holistic, collaborative approach emphasizing the details and consistent processes for effective navigation in the workplace. We help employers set up and adhere to processes that serve to guide and inform the employment relationship resulting in better workplace outcomes and less litigation; and we empower employees to navigate the workplace, leveraging the law and their experiences. Because we believe, and our clients have seen, that inconsistency in the application of the law or the workplace culture is not good for anyone.
