Employment law unfair dismissal specialists

McArdle Legal advises employers and individuals in all work-related problems (except Workers Compensation).

McArdle Legal emphasises Employment / Workplace Law. Few other firms can guarantee that the lawyer handling your matter is not just “dabbling” in this complex area. In addition, McArdle Legal, being a specialist firm, will not see your custom as a marketing opportunity for other services of the firm, which you have not sought.
