Upholding Employees’ Rights

I am attorney James A. Devine, and I have been a licensed attorney for more than 35 years. Today, I protect the rights of workers who have been subjected to discrimination, wrongful termination and unpaid compensation.

After serving on active duty as a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, a lawyer, a Pentagon civilian, an assistant Illinois state attorney and assistant Illinois attorney general, I have focused my practice on employment law and civil rights. I understand that losing your job is a frightening ordeal, especially in this economy. If your employer broke the law regarding hiring, firing or disciplinary practices, I can stand up for your rights. For a free initial consultation, please call 217-280-4094.

Strong Legal Help For Public And Private Sector Employees

Employment law covers a broad spectrum of issues, including discrimination and harassment. Employers are not allowed to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, disability or participation in the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If you experienced wrongful discharge or retaliation because of discrimination or filing complaints, I can represent you.

I also represent whistleblowers and individuals who report false claims. Federal and Illinois law protects employees who report workplace violations and unsafe conditions.

If you have wage and hour complaints, such as overtime violations, I can help you collect unpaid compensation.
