Practice/Organization Description

Described by one of Texas' premier law firms as a "real go-getter who is tenacious and effective," Dallas employment lawyer Barry Hersh is a favorite among Dallas/Fort Worth area executives, professionals, and Texas employers. In 2006, Barry earned the distinction of being named by D Magazine as one of the “Best Lawyers under 40 in Dallas." More recently, Texas’ top lawyers named Barry a 2009 “Texas Super Lawyer Rising Star” in employment litigation.

Barry is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in labor and employment law. His Dallas, TX law firm, Hersh Law Firm, PC delivers strategic counsel and intelligent solutions for executives, professionals, and Texas businesses faced with today’s most pressing workplace issues: overtime pay, non-compete agreements, commission and bonus disputes, wrongful termination, independent contractor misclassification, and complex employment litigation. He also reviews and negotiates severance agreements and employment contracts.

Barry opened his Texas employment law firm to provide employees and employers with tenacious representation, innovative solutions, and straight forward legal advice explained in plain English. Because his Dallas employment law firm equally represents individuals and businesses, Barry understands from experience what motivates plaintiffs and defendants in employment law disputes. This dual perspective, and Barry's focus on business-minded solutions, shapes not just his litigation strategy, but also the law firm's approach to resolving disputes.

Presently, a significant part of Barry's Texas employment law practice is dedicated to resolving disputes on behalf of Texas employees and employers involving Texas non-compete law, unpaid wages and compensation (executive severance, commissions and bonuses, overtime pay, and breach of employment agreement), retaliation, workplace harassment, age discrimination, sex discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, and independent contractor misclassification matters.
