A person’s occupation is often one of the most defining aspects of his or her identity. That’s why employment law is so impactful to individuals — but also to the employer’s bottom line. Tally Perez respects the fact that this makes employment law one of the most personal areas of the law (perhaps second only to family law). She knows that the outcome of her work gets to the heart of a person’s sense of self.

Tally also knows that most employers want to create a collegial workplace and to do the right thing for their employees. She counsels her clients that injured workers should be treated with respect and compassion, with an eye toward getting them back to productive employment as soon as possible.

Tally works proactively with her clients to advise them and brainstorm with them on how to create a positive and cost-effective work environment while still meeting legal requirements. Through this collaboration, Tally works to structure the workplace in a way that supports and encourages employees while decreasing her client’s legal exposure — hopefully by preventing incidents in the first place. It is this balanced and collaborative approach to employment law that makes Tally such an asset to her clients.

Aside from employment law, Tally is also renowned for her encyclopedic knowledge and fandom of college basketball and professional baseball.
