Finding a Path Forward: How Experience Led to the Founding of MKO Employment Law LLC
Attorney Kraemer previously founded a large plaintiff’s employment and business law firm in 2012. With about 30 employees and physical offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia at its peak, it handled thousands of
clients and cases. Desiring to change his practice to be totally and narrowly focused on employment law, he founded a boutique plaintiff employment law firm. Using the experience of helping thousands of people find justice, Attorney Kraemer founded MKO in order to orient the practice to align with his slogan, “Providing you a path forward in your life, career, and recovering the compensation you deserve.™“
Why Boutique Matters: Finding the Personal Touch in Employment Law with MKO
MKO is a “boutique firm” which means that we focus on a niche area and offer highly specialized services to clients who are looking for the personal touch within our area of expertise: Employment Law. Boutique law firms are not a general practice or one-stop legal shop, and that’s a good thing. You need one good attorney who knows the ins and outs of the area of law that’s relevant to your case. Look for a law firm that primarily practices the area of law that you need. If that’s all they do, chances are, they do it very well. We see each legal dispute as an opportunity to find a fair and equitable resolution without destroying your reputation, resume, job prospects, income, and if avoidable, not subjecting you, your family, friends, and former coworkers to unnecessary, highly invasive, time consuming, stressful, and ultimately public litigation. Confidentiality is key, for everyone.
Balancing Aggressive Litigation and Holistic Solutions for Employment Issues
What does this mean? It means we may aggressively litigate to recover as large money award or settlement as we can. But, it also means MKO understands that this employment issue shouldn’t define your entire life and dictate your future. You deserve compensation, and part of that is all parties transitioning to a path forward for everyone. MKO believes this wholistic approach is geared toward getting you the best result possible. Attorney Kraemer, as the founder of MKO, believes that by being an advocate for the client, MKO can find effective solutions to their problems and deliver a positive outcome, even in most difficult circumstances. If you would like a free consultation with an employment lawyer, you can contact us by phone, send us an e-mail, website message, or web chat and we will reach out to you as soon as possible.
We aim to be a hi-tech boutique law firm fighting for your rights in the fastest, most effective way possible, all while providing top notch client service.
MKO Employment Law LLC: Why Reputation, Expertise, and Track Record Matter
Trusting a law firm is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. The decision to trust a law firm depends on a variety of factors, including the law firm’s reputation, expertise, and track record. One of the most important factors to consider is the law firm’s reputation. You should research the law firm and its attorneys, look for reviews and testimonials, and check their credentials and qualifications. You can also check if the law firm is in good standing with professional associations and regulatory bodies. Another important factor to consider is the law firm’s expertise. You want to make sure that the law firm has experience in the specific area of law that your case falls under. For example, if you need help with a personal injury case, you should look for a law firm that specializes in personal injury law.
The law firm’s track record is also important. You want to look for a law firm that has a history of successfully representing clients and achieving favorable outcomes. This can give you confidence that the law firm has the necessary skills and experience to handle your case effectively. Ultimately, trust is built on a combination of reputation, expertise, and track record. If you feel comfortable with the law firm and its attorneys and are confident in their ability to handle your case, you may be more likely to trust them. It’s important to do your research and ask questions before making a decision about which law firm to trust.
