About Frank Freed Subit & Thomas
Since its founding in 1981, our firm has enjoyed a long and storied history
providing the highest quality legal representation to employees and labor
unions. Over the years we have grown to become one of the largest law
firms in Washington dedicated to representing individual employees in
workplace disputes. Our attorneys are outstanding practitioners who practice
with the highest integrity and professionalism. This high standard is
reflected in our firm receiving the highest ratings available from the
leading peer-review agencies, and our attorneys having amassed an impressive
amount of individual awards and recognition. More than 30 years later,
we still do every day what our founders set out to do from day one: promote
equality and fairness in the workplace. Founding partner Steve Frank became
of-counsel to the firm in July 2015. Cliff Freed retired from the firm
in January 2017 to become a full-time mediator and arbitrator.
Our lawyers share a common purpose. We believe a level playing field is
the foundation of justice. Our goal and mission is to provide unparalleled
service for our clients and, by doing so, to protect the rights and benefits
of all employees. These are our core beliefs:
- Employees deserve an equal and fair workplace.
- Each of our clients is entitled to committed, effective, and high quality
- Our attorneys will act with integrity and professionalism.
We built our firm on these shared values. We love what we do. We invite
you to put our passion to work for you.
Employment: Our attorneys represent employees in a wide range of workplace disputes
including breach of contract, discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing,
unpaid wages, and wrongful termination. We also represent clients in matters
such as severance negotiations, non-compete agreements, civil service
appeals, and professional licensing matters. Our firm litigates both individual
employment cases and class actions. For workplace disputes not requiring
litigation, our attorneys also work with clients in reaching practical
and effective solutions through negotiation and advisement. We routinely
advise clients seeking disability accommodations or temporary leave from
work for medical or family reasons. We represent private employees and
those employed by government agencies. See our
practice areas for further details.
Labor: We offer a full range of services to our union clients, including contract
negotiations, interest and grievance arbitrations, unfair labor practices,
and defending duty of fair representation cases. Our union clients include
Amalgamated Transit Union Locals 587, 1576 and 883, Office & Professional
Employees International Union Local No. 8, and Service Employees International
Union Healthcare Local 775NW.
If you are an individual with an employment issue, including a potential
class action, or a labor union in need of counsel, we invite you to
contact us for a consultation.
