We are pleased to welcome Melanie Leitman to our Labor & Employment Law group. We look forward to Melanie being a part of the continued expansion of our Labor & Employment practice throughout the State. Our Labor and Employment attorneys have established a solid reputation in South and Central Florida for nearly four decades. In 2017, we expanded our Central Florida footprint with the addition of Janet McEnery and Andy McLaughlin to our Tampa office. We are excited to extend our services to clients in the Tallahassee market and throughout North Florida.

Melanie’s practice includes employment defense litigation and Human Resources compliance, consultation, and training. She has experience representing management-side clients in various employment-related claims, including Chapter 760, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, FLSA, whistleblower retaliation claims, drafting and enforcement/defense of covenants prohibiting competition, and constitutional claims arising out of employment disputes. She has represented clients in pre-claim consultation, EEOC/FCHR position statements and investigations, state/federal court litigation, and appellate disposition thereof. Read her full bio here.
