Seattle Employment Lawyer

Bob Donovan

I have been practicing employment law since 1998 – the year I graduated from Syracuse University College of Law with high honors.

For the first 7 years of my career I litigated employment law disputes, first representing employees, and then representing employers. Next, I spent over 6 years as in-house employment counsel for a national restaurant company. I then re-entered private practice, joining one of the nation’s largest and most respected employment law firms. There, I continued advising clients and advocating on their behalf. This included filing a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Labor, challenging portions of their 2011 regulations concerning tip pooling.

Ultimately, I decided to open my own firm. I wanted the flexibility to represent both employers and employees. I also wanted to provide a better value to my clients by reducing overhead, leveraging technology and, consequently, being more efficient and affordable. I “hung my shingle” in April 2015, and have had the great fortune of representing many employers and employees in their times of need.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about me. I hope we have a chance to meet, and that I can be of service to you.

I am truly passionate about partnering closely with my clients to provide practical, tailored solutions to the employment-related challenges they face.
