Employment Law

Crane Dunham PLLC provides employment law advice and representation in a wide variety of business situations. We represent both employees and employers relating to wage claims, overtime and commissions and related benefits disputes.

We provide representation on both an individual basis, as well as plaintiffs’ class actions involving hundreds or thousands of employees. For example, we successfully settled litigation on behalf of over 1,400 employees involving claims for millions of dollars in unpaid compensation and bonuses against an international company doing business in Washington.

We also have handled and settled cases involving employment discrimination due to sexual harassment, hostile work environment and health disability.

Crane Dunham PLLC represents parties in cases involving non-compete agreements, severance pay, employment termination and “claw back” bonus provisions.

I am a lawyer who has been licensed to practice in Washington state since 1986. I have had the good fortune during this time to work with Stephen Crane in a number of different capacities. Stephen has been my co-counsel, I have acted as an expert witness for Stephen’s clients and he has represented my company in its capacity as a court appointed receiver in a number of matters. No matter what his role, Stephen has always been creative with his solutions, professional in all his interactions and incredibly effective in resolving problems. I highly recommend Stephen to any party with a legal issue.
