Abigail M. Moland


“I take a proactive approach to all labor and employment matters by developing effective and creative solutions tailored to my client’s needs.”

Abbey counsels employers on a range of labor and employment law matters, including wage and hour classifications and compliance, workforce reductions, employee leaves of absence and disability accommodations, workplace investigations, hiring practices, disciplinary actions and employee terminations, immigration and workforce authorization, management and employee training on workplace issues, union organization, OSHA investigations and employee class-action litigation.   She is also experienced in defending employment-related litigation and providing counseling in the prevention of 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. 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 assists employers in developing long-term strategies and best practices to reduce business and legal risks.

“Strategizing from the outset of a case is the key to not only saving the client money in the long run, but also developing a legal plan that can have a positive long-term impact on other areas of the client’s business. “
