There is a lot of talk these days about "1 percenters" and the overwhelming power of corporate America. At the Birmingham law office of Winston Cooks, LLC, we believe that hardworking "99 percenters" still deserve a voice. When a company attempts to wield its might over its workers unlawfully — whether through discrimination, unlawful wage practices, wrongful termination or unfair treatment of any kind — Winston Cooks, LLC, advocates aggressively on behalf of the employees.
Our firm was founded in 2006 by attorneys Lee Winston and Roderick T. Cooks, employment law attorneys who began practicing law in 1992 and 1999 respectively. We have earned a reputation as a zealous defender of workers' rights. We represent individuals throughout Alabama from all walks of life and across a broad spectrum of industries — professionals, laborers, restaurant employees and all types of service industries.
We bring the same unwavering approach that we use in employment law cases to personal injury claims. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, our attorneys will work to maximize the amount you recover from your own insurance provider or a third-party provider.
Embracing The Underdog Role
There are few, if any, areas of law in which it is more important to have a tenacious lawyer in your corner than employment law. Our clients typically find themselves in the intimidating position of fighting a tough-minded and well-financed employer or former employer. You need a law firm that is focused and experienced on these kinds of cases, not one that merely dabbles in employment law. We have taken on a number of cases that other employment law firms turned down, and we reached favorable resolutions for our clients.
Our passion for protecting the rights of individuals in the workplace drives us to live up to the philosophy, "Play like a champion, train like an underdog." We welcome the underdog role, but we don't view ourselves as underdogs, and our track record of success is evidence that we are never overmatched.
Depending upon the circumstances of your case, we can pursue back pay, compensatory and punitive damages. We represent our clients on a contingency basis, which means we only collect a fee if we are successful obtaining a recovery for the client.
Prepared To Protect Your Rights
We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case during a free consultation. We will provide a candid assessment and recommend the best course of action. Call or contact us to schedule an appointment.
