Gilbert Employment Law, P.C.

Gilbert Employment Law, P.C., is an employment law firm serving clients in and around Silver Spring, Maryland. Our team empowers workers to stand up to their employers and defend their rights. We work closely with them on matters related to adverse actions and inequality. Examples of the types of cases we handle include LGBTQ discrimination, federal employment discrimination, workplace sexual harassment and private sector litigation.

Our Gilbert Employment Law, P.C., team puts the clients first from the very beginning. They have already called us because they believe we may be able to help with your case. So, instead of building our own case of grandeur, we focus on helping them build a solid foundation for your employment law case.

Our track record of success at Gilbert Employment Law, P.C., has led to frequent invitations for our lawyers to speak at national and local events, such as the Federal Dispute Resolution Conference. Our attorneys have also served as instructors for Federal, HR & EEO Law Training. Finally, our attorneys have contributed to regulatory reforms regarding the EEOC and the ADA.

As civil rights lawyers, we work with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. At Gilbert Employment Law, P.C., we treat all our clients with the dignity and respect we would want our own families to experience in the same situations.

Gilbert Employment Law, P.C. Welcomes Passman & Kaplan

Gilbert Employment Law, P.C. is excited to announce that as of June 2021, the attorneys and staff of Passman & Kaplan are joining Gilbert Employment Law, P.C. 

Passman & Kaplan, P.C. and Gilbert Employment Law, P.C. have been two of the most successful and influential law firms representing federal government employees throughout the nation. After the untimely passing of our good friend and colleague Joseph Kaplan last year, it was apparent that an association such as this was in the best interest of Passman & Kaplan clients.
