Advancing Respect And Dignity In The Workplace
Employment disputes can be difficult to face on your own. Many people experiencing employment discrimination or wage and hour disputes may be hesitant to speak up for fear of losing their job. But if you are contending with being fired or wrongfully terminated, retaliation for turning your employer in for unethical or illegal behavior, harassment or discrimination, the law is on your side. You have a right to be paid for the hours you work. You have a right to a work environment free of toxic discrimination and harassment. Speaking with an experienced employment law attorney can help you determine whether you have a case against your employer and to stand up for your protected rights.
The Law Office of Nigel M. Atwell represents workers from all walks of life and professions. After review of your circumstances, we will help you develop a strategy best suited to help you cultivate the respect and dignity you deserve at your workplace.

Our Approach: Education Is Freedom
A solid education can lead to the freedom of being able to choose from many open doors of opportunity. But if you are a parent of a child with special needs, pursuing a free – and appropriate – education for your child may be challenging without the help of a knowledgeable education law attorney. Our founding attorney, Nigel M. Atwell, is a passionate advocate for the well-being of children with special education needs.
Mr. Atwell is a former District of Columbia public school educator. He is well-versed in the provisions for educating and protecting children with special needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other laws. He is highly qualified to address not only academic but also safe-environment issues – such as discrimination, harassment, abuse and neglect – your child is struggling with in traditional or public charter schools in Washington, D.C.
