Client Testimonials

[Mark Oberti] made the other side look extremely unprepared, and caught them off guard SO MUCH. I really don't know how he remembers so much, but he knew every detail of my case and brought it up at every moment it counted ... He listened carefully to my suggestions, and was always very responsive. I hope I never go through what I did again in my lifetime, but I will say that I know who to call to have my back.

Oberti Sullivans mission is to provide vigorous, responsive, and peerless representation to employers, employees, and executives in employment law. They are small because they do all the work themselves, and they pick the cases they wish to work on. Since the Firms founding, Mark and Ed have obtained settlements and verdicts in the millions of dollars and defended companies of all sizes against all types of employment law claims. You do not hire them because you want just a plaintiff attorney or just a defense attorney. You hire them because you want a successful employment attorney in Houston to handle your case personally. They will shoot it to you straight and will represent you aggressively and professionally.

The Firm handles a wide range of employment cases, including high-level executive cases, as well as non-compete litigation, and a variety of other employment law matters, such as race discrimination, race harassment (including noose cases), retaliation, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, age discrimination, age harassment, disability (ADA) discrimination, and reasonable accommodation, 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 courts. 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. Please scroll through our results and testimonials.
