Healey & Hornack, P.C. is focused on ensuring the employment rights of employees and on protecting the civil rights and civil liberties of everyone. The employment rights work is on behalf of employees and labor unions. The civil rights and civil liberties work is for a broad range of clients and is often done in conjunction with the American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) and the Center for Constitutional Rights (“CCR”).
Healey & Hornack, P.C. has been selected as a Tier 1 law firm by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Law Firms in Pittsburgh for Union-side Labor Law, Individual Employment Law & Labor & Employment Litigation.
Our work for employees consists of three general types:
Our work for labor unions includes major federal and state court litigation, collective bargaining, arbitrations of discharges and contractual disputes, and work before administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”). The NLRB work includes organizing campaigns, and the major litigation includes issues such as unpaid wages and overtime, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), and injunction actions.
The civil rights and civil liberties litigation is focused on First Amendment cases, especially for people arrested in peaceful demonstrations, engaged in civil disobedience, and arrested on union picket lines. This work includes many successful challenges to unconstitutional permitting and canvassing ordinances. Healey & Hornack, P.C. also has a robust government misconduct practice, and during election cycles our lawyers are often engaged in “Election Protection Work” – protecting the rights of all citizens to vote.
Criminal Defense - our firm is also experienced in criminal defense work whether in state or federal court, handling everything from a routine DUI to homicides and federal drug conspiracy cases. Our firm also specializes in handling the criminal defense of those arrested while participating in demonstrations or civil disobedience and while exercising their First Amendment rights.
