Chris Suffecool, Of Counsel
In addition to his work as Of Counsel for TLG, Chris is also the owner and founder of Suffecool Law, PLLC.
Chris has practiced employment and labor law for the last 15 years. Chris began by representing Fortune 500 companies and small businesses in litigation, disputes and agency hearings as an attorney with some of the best labor and employment law firms in the world. He also provided guidance on best legal practices for establishing employment policies and managing workforces. Chris also had substantial experience working as in-house counsel for a large employer, gaining in-depth knowledge and experience in how companies manage their employees on a day-to-day basis.
Chris now devotes the majority of his practice to representing employees in various employment related matters – including wage and hour issues, discrimination and harassment, breach of contract, ADA and FMLA claims, and wrongful termination, among others. Because he’s been on the other side of the aisle, Chris’ background gives him a knowledge and experience base that many plaintiff’s employment attorneys do not have. He knows how employers think, the missteps they often make, how and when they are likely to defend themselves or settle claims. Chris has practiced in State and Federal Court, before state and federal agencies (including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Arizona Civil Rights Division, and the National Labor Relations Board, among others).
Chris has lived in Gilbert, Arizona for the last 20 years with his wonderful wife (a public school teacher) and two daughters. When he’s not at work, Chris can be found in the gym, on the golf course, or at one of his daughters’ various sporting events.
