real employees   real experiences   real results

Most cases settle and only the most hotly contested disputes get decided at a hearing, trial, judicial review or appeal.  At Franklin Law, we are very proud of our record of winning cases and our ability to negotiate meaningful settlements for workers.  We are no less proud, however, of the courageous workers who asked us to argue cases on a new point of law or where where the odds were stacked against them and were not as successful.  Regardless of the outcome, we strive to get the best result for every worker who entrusts their case to us and are inspired every time we sit beside a fellow worker in his or her moment of triumph.  The following cases represent a few of the publicly available tribunal and court decisions that Franklin Law has won, lost, settled, or otherwise been involved in.
