AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT COVID-19

To all our valued clients and community partners: 

COVID-19 is creating evolving and challenging circumstances. Livingston, Adler, Pulda, Meiklejohn & Kelly remains committed to our long-standing mission of protecting the legal rights of workers and unions and fighting for equal opportunity and fairness in the workplace.  We’re adapting our advocacy to fight for justice for our clients in these unprecedented times—including advocating for worker health and safety, telework options, and maintenance of employment rights while navigating the public health responsibilities we all now share.

LAPMK is also taking advised precautions to protect the health of our clients, staff and communities.  Our attorneys and staff are continuing to work and taking new cases, but our physical office space is not open to the public.  We are meeting with clients remotely and responding to email and voice mail.  To reach us by phone you can continue to call the main office number (860-233-9821) or the direct lines of the individual attorneys which are listed below.  Or feel free to email us – all email addresses are listed here on our website.

Just as we work together to solve legal problems related to people’s ability to earn a living and to be treated fairly in their workplaces, we can continue to work together to face this new challenge.  Please take care of yourselves and be mindful of the health and safety of others as this crisis continues to unfold.

Livingston, Adler, Pulda, Meiklejohn & Kelly PC, is a mid-sized labor and employment law firm which began in 1981 with the merger of two smaller union-side firms. For over thirty years, our practice has been limited to labor law representing Unions, and employment law representing individual employees. With six attorneys, we are dedicated solely to representing employees and unions in employment-related matters.

We have represented employees with claims of employment discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, breach of contract, severance negotiations and many other employment disputes. We also represent other progressive and civil rights nonprofit organizations, including the Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund and the Connecticut Citizen Action Group, on issues related to Employment, Women's Rights, Health Care, and Constitutional Law.

We represent employees through all phases of litigation, including negotiation, mediation and arbitration; representation in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities ("CHRO"), Freedom of Information Commission ("FOIC") and various municipal actions; and trial and appellate work in the State and Federal Courts. We represent Unions before the National Labor Relations Board, the State Labor Relations Board, State and Federal Courts and at arbitrations and in negotiations.

Our Mission

Our Mission at LAPM&K is to promote employee rights, civil rights and workplace fairness, and to support the labor movement as it works to increase job security, and improve salaries, benefits and working conditions for working people in Connecticut and beyond. Corporations generally have far greater resources than the employees who face them across the courtroom or negotiating table. Our goal is to use our skills and experience to help level this playing field. Using the highest standards of professionalism and integrity, we seek to help employees and labor unions create a more just workplace - one case at a time.
