Oberti Sullivan LLP









Experienced Houston Employment Lawyers

Oberti Sullivan is a boutique law firm of dedicated Houston employment attorneys.  Mark Oberti and Ed Sullivan are both Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  Each are former successful partners at a national employment law firm.  They founded Oberti Sullivan to provide heightened and efficient service to their many corporate clients, and also to leverage their talents and abilities for executives and employees who have compelling cases.

Our goal is to provide vigorous, responsive, and peerless representation to employers, employees, and executives in employment law.  In 2015, the Firm received three major accolades from important legal publications.  Corporate Counsel Magazine named Oberti Sullivan as one of the “2015 Go-To Law Firms for the Top 500 Companies."  The publication The Best Lawyers In America recognized Mark Oberti and Ed Sullivan for Employment Law-Management.  And, Super Lawyers, a Thompson Reuters service printed in Texas Monthly, recognized Mark and Ed as elite "Top 100 Houston Super Lawyers."  In both 2012 and 2013, Texas Lawyer named Mark Oberti as "Litigator of the Week."

We routinely handle a wide range of employment cases, including race discrimination, race harassment (including noose cases), retaliation, sex discrimination, sex harassment, age discrimination, age harassment, disability (ADA) discrimination and reasonable accommodation, non-compete, whistleblower, FLSA (unpaid overtime and minimum wage), collective actions, Sarbanes-Oxley Act retaliation claims, Dodd-Frank Act retaliation claims, DOL audits and investigations, unpaid bonuses, and many other employment law cases in Houston and Texas.

Oberti Sullivan has proven trial and appellate results in both state and federal court.  For employers, we have achieved numerous complete defense victories, from small businesses to the Fortune 100.  For individuals and executives, we have obtained favorable settlements and verdicts for our individual clients.  See here for an example.  If you are an employee, please read the "Five Questions That Individual Employees Should Ask Before Hiring A Houston Employment Lawyer."

Mark and Ed have different styles, personalities, and perspectives, but each enjoys zealously practicing law and solving problems.  They pick up their phones, answer your questions directly, and are committed to providing you with an early case assessment with realistic litigation strategies and options.  If you are considering a lawyer, you should evaluate the history of success of Mark and Ed.
