Reputable lawyers confront injustice for Iowa and Illinois workers

In today’s economy, workers often feel they are at the mercy of their employers, no matter how hardworking and loyal those employees may be. O'Brien & Marquard is determined to level the playing field for employees by providing:
  • Reliable counsel — We fully explain the law and how it applies to the facts of your situation, so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed with your case. Throughout the legal process, we provide timely and pertinent advice on new developments.
  • Determined advocacy — We are passionate about obtaining justice for workers, especially when they are at a disadvantage against a powerful employer.
  • Ethical representation — Our firm is dedicated to providing clients with the highest levels of service and respect. Attorney Dorothy O'Brien has earned an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® for her high ethical standards and professional ability.
Because of our commitment to helping workers who are disadvantaged in their fight for justice, O'Brien & Marquard only represents employees, never employers.
Areas of Practice

Passionate Iowa attorneys stand by mistreated workers

Our law firm provides determined representation for employees in civil rights and labor and employment disputes related to:
  • Wage and overtime — If your employer has used illegal tactics to deny you a lawful wage or overtime, we fight to get you the full compensation you deserve.
  • Wrongful termination — We protect employees who have been wrongfully terminated due to discrimination or in violation of whistleblower protections.
  • Severance agreements — When it’s time to separate from your employer, we can help you negotiate a severance package. If your employer has violated the terms of a severance agreement, we can fight to enforce your contractual rights.
  • Sexual harassment — We represent workers who have been the victims of sexual harassment, through unwanted sexual advances or a hostile work environment.
  • Gender discrimination — We are staunch advocates for equal pay for equal work: we stand beside female employees in their struggle for fair treatment when facing gender discrimination.
  • Noncompete agreements — If you signed a noncompete agreement that unfairly limits your ability to earn a living, or if your employer is accusing you of violating a noncompete, we represent your interests and fight for your rights.
  • ERISA: Our attorneys fight for your rights to employer-provided benefits covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). We use our experience and knowledge to help you obtain the benefits you need and deserve.
Even when you think you have no recourse against your employer’s unfair behavior, the law is often on your side. A knowledgeable and determined lawyer from O'Brien & Marquard can help you get the justice you seek.
