My passion has always been to help people. To this end, I focus my practice on mediation, family law, and labor and employment law (including Federal employment law). Acting as a mediator, I help parties resolve their disputes amicably without extensive litigation. However, mediation is not always the best method for everyone. In those instances, I provide legal representation. My goal is to help people resolve their disputes through mediation or litigation, whichever is appropriate.

Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you. My name is Albert Wilson, Jr. But you can call me Albert.

For years, I've practiced law in the Washington, DC metro region. As an attorney, I've centered my practice on civil litigation, involving construction, real estate, and business. Admittedly, I have been known to take a case or two unrelated to these areas, e.g., consumer protection cases. And on occasion, I will accept a pro bono (free of charge) case that is referred by the AARP.

Undoubtedly, you'll read many lawyers' bios, detailing the various accolades the...

Problems in the workplace?

Employment law governs the relationship between workers and their employers. This law, contained in federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions, specifies the rights and restrictions applicable to each party in the workplace.

This area of law regulates such issues as employee benefits, discipline, hiring, firing, leave, payroll, and health and safety in the workplace. It also encompasses non-compete agreements, retaliation, severance, unemployment compensation, pensions, whistle-blowing, worker classification, wage garnishment, work authorization for non-U.S. citizens, worker's compensation, and employee handbooks.

Both federal and state laws govern the relationship between employees and employers. Federal laws such as Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on certain characteristics. Many states have enacted their own laws similar to federal ones (and sometimes are more stringent). Cities and counties also can enact ordinances that affect employee rights, such as local minimum wage laws.

Employment lawyers can choose to accept only employees as clients, only employers, or both. Some attorneys focus on a specific area of employment law, such as workers' compensation, whistleblowing or discrimination, but many can handle a wide range of employment law issues.


Essential job functions: The fundamental job duties of the employment position that the individual with a disability holds or desires. The term essential functions does not include marginal functions of the position.

Exempt employee: An employee who is not entitled to the minimum wage or overtime pay protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
