Employment Law Protecting the Rights of Ohioans Since 1990

Cincinnati Employment Law Attorneys

Fighting for the Rights of Workers in Ohio & Beyond

Freking Myers & Reul, LLC is an Ohio-based general litigation firm with a particular focus in employment law. We have been advocates for working people for more than three decades. With offices in Cincinnati and Dayton and Ohio we serve the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana areas. Our team of lawyers and paralegals recognize that clients often appreciate counsel not only on their employment rights, but also on how best to process what can be a wrenching personal experience.

Each Cincinnati employment law attorney at our firm has extensive experience in litigation in state and federal courts, but we also have extensive experience in mediation, arbitration, and settlement negotiations. We represent employees in all aspects of the employment relationship—from negotiating employment contracts, and identifying and resolving issues that arise during employment, to representing employees in wrongful termination matters.

We also provide legal counsel to executive employees concerning their employment contracts, executive compensation plans, and non-compete agreements.
