Jordan is an employment law attorney who counsels and litigates on behalf of employers in state and federal court.

Jordan provides problem-solving advice to employer leadership and HR teams on a wide variety of issues including hiring, firing, discrimination and retaliation complaints, requests for accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and requests for a leave of absence under the ADA and Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). As former in-house employment counsel for a staffing agency, Jordan believes that having a well-informed and well-trained HR team is the best defense against employment law litigation. Jordan also provides clients with daily one-on-one counseling with HR teams to triage new and ongoing employee related disputes.

Jordan also represents employers from the administrative phase through arbitration or state/federal litigation. Jordan also represents plaintiff employers in the prosecution of former employees who violate their restrictive covenant agreements. Jordan has exceptional trial experience as a former Assistant District Attorney for Dallas County, Texas. Jordan has defended against a wide array of claims related to employment law, including claims brought under state and federal anti-discrimination laws, medical leave laws, and claims brought by union employees.

Jordan is devoted to making sure employers and their HR teams are prepared for employment related disputes so that employee claims are dismissed early (and less expensively) in litigation.
