Legal Counsel for Unions and Workers in Labor Law Disputes

Since the early 1970s, the attorneys of Sugarman Susskind Braswell & Herrera have zealously represented labor unions and union workers throughout Florida. Bob Sugarman and Howard Susskind are nationally known for their work on behalf of labor unions. The commitment and dedication that they have shown to the labor movement and unions are shared by their fellow attorneys. 

Lawyers at our Miami labor union law firm have earned an excellent reputation for our day-to-day compliance counseling and work in settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration, and court trials. Most of our lawyers come from union backgrounds; all have seen firsthand the benefits that unions bring to working people. Each of our Coral Gables labor attorneys is a member of the AFL-CIO Lawyers’ Coordinating Committee. Learn more about how we can assist you by scheduling your consultation today.

We provide full-service representation for labor unions of all kinds. Our attorneys have decades of experience representing unions in the public and private sectors.

Our experience extends to union elections, problems with the Department of Labor, and issues concerning fair representation. Whether in state court, federal court, arbitration, or in front of PERC or the NLRB, we are there for our clients.
