Protecting The Labor Rights Of Those Who Protect And Serve
Working in law enforcement has always been a sacrifice, these days more than ever. Budget cuts, policing reforms and public animosity have made it all the more critical for law enforcement personnel and their unions to have strong legal representation. This is true even here in South Central Pennsylvania.
FrancePaskey, P.C., provides labor representation to Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) local lodges and other law enforcement employee organizations throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Police labor and employment law is a strength for our firm. Our police labor relations lawyers have significant experience advocating on behalf of police unions and individual officers throughout the state. Additionally, Ed Paskey is one of the few Pennsylvania attorneys approved by the FOP Legal Defense Plan offered by the Grand Lodge of the FOP.
