Experienced Law Firm Protecting Workers’ and Retirees’ Rights to Pensions and Other Retirement Benefits
Providing legal representation for employees and retirees nationally
The nationally known law firm of Sandals & Associates, P.C. protects the rights of workers and retirees all across the country. The firm only represents current and former employees and retirees. It does not represent employers.
Employers in the United States are bound by law to treat their workers and retirees fairly when it comes to pay and retirement and other benefits. Our attorneys have worked in this field for decades to ensure that employees and retirees receive the benefits and pay they are entitled to under the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as well as applicable state laws.
Attorneys who work exclusively for employees and retirees
You have worked hard to support yourself and your family and you earned the retirement benefits and pay you were promised and expect. You also deserve to be treated fairly and in compliance with the law. When that doesn’t happen, it’s time to turn to our experienced attorneys. We have been fighting to protect the rights of employees and retirees for over 30 years.
Personal and attentive service to our clients
We always represent your best interests. We understand that every case has its unique challenges and we address them head-on with the personal attention that gives you confidence going forward. From day one, you will have a direct personal relationship with our senior lawyers. We intentionally limit the size of our caseload to ensure that each client and case receives the most skillful and successful representation possible. Our commitment to your case will continue throughout our time representing you. We are used to handling difficult and challenging cases. As a client, you can rest easy knowing that we are on your case and protecting your interests no matter what twists and turns may occur in your case.
A history of national success
Every case is different, and our success in previous cases does not mean that we will succeed in any particular case in the future. But we are highly selective in deciding which cases to take on. Due to our decades-long experience in the area of pensions, benefits, wage and hour and anti-discrimination employment laws, we have the ability to identify strengths and potential problems in a case. We formulate winning strategies to overcome even the toughest and largest management law firms.
As a nationally prominent firm in its field, Sandals & Associates, P.C has taken on leading roles in a number of successful, precedent-setting cases on behalf of employee and retiree clients. Many of these cases are listed in the biographies of our attorneys.

Fighting for your rights
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted by Congress so that employees and retirees could depend on pension and other benefit plans that would be financially sound and fairly administered. Companies that offer these benefit plans are required to meet strict standards for funding, for accurate disclosure of information, and for loyalty to the interests of participants and beneficiaries. Our attorneys ensure that when these strict standards are not met, our clients’ interests are protected fully and effectively. Sandals & Associates, P.C. also fights for workers whose employers are not complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements related to wages, hours and overtime.
We provide skilled and highly effective representation in the following areas of practice for our clients:
- Employee and retiree benefits and pensions (ERISA)

- Employee benefit plans
