focusing on employment law & school law
How Can We help?
John F. Emerson,
Attorney at Law
Emerson Law, LLC focuses solely on two areas: employment law and school law. As an employment lawyer, I protect employees, and former employees, against discrimination, improper pay practices, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination. I assist those who need accommodations for disabilities, or to take leave due to illness, or for other reasons. I also advise individuals who are negotiating contracts or severance agreements. As a school lawyer, I serve students facing disciplinary action, students with special needs, students who have been denied the benefits of public education because of illegal discrimination, and those who face other school-related challenges.
Backed by nine years of experience as the attorney for the Charleston County School District, I help students get the educational opportunities they deserve.
