Abigail M. Moland


Abbey counsels Fortune 500, mid-size and start-up businesses, colleges and universities and non-profits on a wide range of labor and employment matters.  Her practice spans across the country in areas including wage and hour compliance, workforce reductions, employee leaves of absence, FMLA and disability accommodations, workplace investigations, hiring practices, disciplinary actions and employee terminations, immigration and workforce authorization, management and employee training on workplace issues, policy formation, union organization, non-compete issues, OSHA investigations and employee class-action litigation.

She is also experienced in defending employment-related litigation and providing day-to-day counseling to avoid unlawful employment practices. Abbey’s goal is to help companies take a strategic approach to build positive employer-employee relations and mitigate risk to avoid litigation. But, where an employer faces litigation, she defends employers with the efficiency, attention to detail and personal connection that her clients deserve.

Abbey strives to help companies focus on their workforce as an asset and provides the tools and support necessary to make that a reality. She has worked with businesses operating in a broad range of industries and brings that practical understanding and knowledge to the table.  By keeping up with the latest developments in the law and enforcement trends, Abbey keeps her clients in front of the curve and helps them implement changes necessary to protect and grow their business. She prioritizes working closely with HR managers, in-house counsel and business leaders in assisting their businesses in developing long-term strategies and best practices to reduce business and legal risks.

Abbey also provides leadership within McGrath North and her community.  She sits on the seven-person Board of Directors of the firm, and chairs the firm’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.  She was selected for Leadership Omaha in 2013-14 and has served on two key community-wide diversity committees, including Omaha’s inaugural class of LeadDIVERSITY.  She is passionate about pushing both businesses and the community to face the historical barriers that exist for minority populations and for women and building solutions for the immediate challenges and to create long-term enhanced opportunities within the legal profession and beyond.
