An Employment Law Firm

With offices in Chicago and San Francisco, Caffarelli & Siegel Ltd. works on behalf of employees to resolve a full range of employment related legal problems, including FLSA unpaid wages and overtime, FMLA family and medical leave disputes, whistleblower claims, retaliation including wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, negotiating employment contracts, non-compete and confidentiality agreements, severance agreements, and more. No case is too big or too small: we are proud to represent everyone from Fortune 500 executives to workers making minimum wage.

Often, people come to us when they have lost their job, and they believe they may have a legal claim for wrongful discharge or retaliation. Other times, we speak to individuals who have received write-ups, suspensions, or demotions – and who simply want to know their legal rights. Each person who contacts our firm regarding an employment law matter receives a free, confidential, no-obligation case evaluation and telephone screening with one of our attorneys. For some clients, a simple consultation is all that is needed. But if you need more, we are there to help with contract or severance negotiations, administrative agency claims, jury trials, class action cases, and appeals.

We work hard to determine the best legal solutions to fit our clients’ needs. Depending on the particular facts, we sometimes take cases on a contingent-fee basis, which means that our clients don’t pay any attorneys’ fees unless we obtain a positive result.

Caffarelli & Siegel Ltd. was founded in 2001 by Alejandro Caffarelli and Marc Siegel, who previously had worked as defense lawyers at a large Chicago law firm. For over a decade, the firm has focused on representing employees. We are now large enough to take on the biggest employers and their firms, but small enough to give each of our clients the personal attention they deserve.
