The Latest News from Schaefer Halleen

The past quarter has been exciting for Schaefer Halleen. Our knowledge in workplace discrimination landed us front and center on a local news station and we even received the news that three of our attorneys have gained increased notoriety by being named to the Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists for the fourth consecutive year.
We've always taken pride in empowering our clients and advancing justice and this quarter has truly been a testament of our dedication to the amazing work we do not only for our community but for our clients.

Over the last several weeks political tensions have been very high. WCCO TV recently explored the answer to the popular question, "Can I Be Fired For My Beliefs" and our very own Larry Schaefer weighed in on the topic in an exclusive interview: 

"If you're a private employee, the answer is yes. You have to be careful about what activity you engage in, even as a private citizen, because it can affect your employment."

Recent Client Feedback

Thank you for helping me with my dispute. I know good lawyers and you guys are excellent lawyers. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the job you guys and Pat and Jenelle and your whole team did for me. It's different being a client. But it gave me a dual lawyer/client perspective on the whole thing that I didn't have before. 


And when I say excellent lawyers, I mean the whole package - the drafting, the analyzing, and client counselling. 


I will never refer a plaintiff employment case or an employment negotiation to anyone but you. I felt like I was in really good hands.
