UNPAID WAGES An employer’s failure to properly pay wages is a serious and punishable matter under State and Federal Laws. These laws require strict compliance from employers in paying minimum and overtime wages for every minute worked – regardless of immigration status. If you think you are not being paid properly, do not take your employers “word” for it. Do not be cheated by your employer. Call Salem & Shimko for a free and private consultation to gain the upper hand. You may be entitled to not only back and unpaid wages, but additional wages as a penalty. Your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you for seeking reimbursement for unpaid wages or because you may be an illegal alien. We do not get paid unless we get you wages.

PROBATE/ESTATE ADMINISTRATION – Losing a loved one is difficult enough. Transferring their assets can be complex, confusing and time consuming. Often disputes can arise over who gets what. Salem & Shimko is well versed in the the special filing requirements and procedures of the Surrogate’s Court.

GUARDIANSHIP – It is hard to watch the ones we love struggle with their day-to-day needs, from getting proper medical treatment to paying bills and protecting investments. Often times, family-status does not enable you to interact with doctors, banks, and lenders on your loved-one’s behalf. Salem & Shimko can help achieve the proper status. Salem & Shimko has helped countless families with their guardianship needs.
