The workplace, to put it mildly, is an important place. It's where we earn a living and provide for our families. A job, for many, is inextricably linked with identity, perhaps even self-esteem. It's a place where we connect with others, many times resulting in lifelong friendships. It's no wonder, then, that emotions run high and nerves are frail when disciplinary action is necessary, when an employee is terminated, or when a sexual harassment investigation is conducted. We understand. And we can help.
Lockaby PLLC opened its doors on March 1, 2016. The firm's guiding principle, and that of its founder, Matt Lockaby, is service to others. Service to others in a time of need. Service to others facing difficult challenges. Service to the community.
We serve employees, employers, and management in nearly every aspect of workplace law. We guide employers through the mazes of administrative, regulatory, and statutory compliance. We provide day-to-day advice and counsel to human resources personnel. And we defend employers and management against a wide variety of workplace claims, including discrimination, retaliation, and harassment claims.
At the same time, we stand up for and protect employees and their rights. Whether in arbitration, before a state or federal administrative agency, or in state or federal trial or appellate court, we will aggressively pursue your cause to vindicate your rights and obtain the recovery that you deserve.
Our experience representing both employees and employers gives us a unique and balanced perspective, one that allows us to more fully and accurately evaluate each client's case, claims, and damages, appropriately assess each client's risks, and provide sound, reasoned, and pragmatic advice.
No matter the client, our singular focus is the same: to be the preeminent and most trusted labor-and-employment counsel in Kentucky by providing vigorous yet transparent, cost-effective representation specifically tailored to resolve each client's problem, and achieve each client's goals, as quickly and efficiently as possible. In a word, service.
