We provide exceptional and experienced employment representation.
At Sudduth & Associates, LLC we are proud to offer representation to employees and workers who have been subjected to unlawful workplace practices and discrimination within the workplace. There are many lawyers that work as corporate counsel to defend companies in their conduct. However, there are very few lawyers that practice in this field on the side of the employee. Our Lake Charles employment lawyers are proud to stand with workers.
Mr. Sudduth has extensive experience and practice in litigating, settling, and negotiating various employment cases as detailed below. However, this is not a field that he originally intended to practice in.

As you tour this site we encourage you to find the particular area of employment law below that applies to your situation and read more about it. However, before doing that we want to briefly explain about employment law. First and foremost, employment law is one of the more complicated areas of law and is riddled with “land mines” at every turn. It is essential that you get a skilled attorney in the area of employment litigation who can help you navigate all the complicated turns.
Second, in employment law – timing is everything! Most statutes require that you file your suit within one year of the act causing damages. However, under Federal law you are required to first and foremost file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and you must do so within 180 days of the alleged act of discrimination. Notice that the time period has been shortened by six (6) months. Most people lose claims simply because they assume they have a year and they do not.
