Jon Hoag knows what his clients are going through. He started his career as a human resources manager dealing with the same management –side issues clients see every day. He actually went to law school specifically to help others deal with issues like wage and hour compliance, employee counseling and discipline, safety, employee relations and compliance with leave laws.

Jon provides practical and economical solutions to complex employment issues. His focus is always on identifying the best legal strategy for his client long term, which includes providing solutions to minimize litigation. However, when litigation is necessary he successfully defends employment-based lawsuits, obtaining the best outcome for his clients.
