Mr. Weaver is able to work closely with companies to develop a solid understanding of each company’s operations, issues and labor-and employment-related policies with the fundamental goal of identifying and diffusing problems before they start. Mr. Weaver helps his clients develop solutions and policies to avoid violations of federal and state laws, minimize disputes with employees, and avoid the cost and disruption to business caused by litigation when possible. When not possible, he vigorously defends his clients and crafts strategies for a successful resolution whether that be through negotiation, dispute resolution or litigation.
