Defending workers against retaliation for more than 20 years
When a company is breaking the law or treating its customers poorly, someone within the company has to stand up for what is right. These people are usually called whistleblowers.

Ellis in Minneapolis, we have been providing legal services to individuals for more than 20 years, and we can help you.
