Gibbons Legal Group, P.C.









If you have been quoted a retainer for your employment law case, tell that attorney to put his money where his mouth is!  DId you know that most employment law statutes provide for the payment of attorneys' fees if you win a lawsuit against your employer?  At Gibbons Legal Group, P.C., we believe that if you have a strong employment law case, you should not have to pay attorneys' fees out of your pocket.  Most Indianapolis employment lawyers charge upfront retainers ranging from $3500 to $5,000 just to accept your case.  We think this is crazy! 

Sometimes, the best advice you can get is "don't waste your time or money hiring an attorney---you do not have a case that can be won."  At Gibbons Legal Group, P.C., we are very selective about the cases we handle.  In fact, it is likely that we will tell you that we cannot represent you.  However, if your claim meets our strict acceptance criteria and we do accept your case, you will not pay us any out-of-pocket attorneys' fees.  In addition, we will advance most, if not all, of the litigation costs incurred in your lawsuit.  Even if we cannot accept your case, we will provide you with free information to help you better understand your employment and disability law rights.

Gibbons Legal Group, P.C. is located in Indianapolis, Indiana.  We maintain a statewide practice and are available to meet with clients at our Indianapolis location, or we can arrange to meet with you at a location closer to where you live.

Who are you and why should I believe what you say on this website?  I'm attorney Phil Gibbons, and at Gibbons Legal Group, P.C., your Indianapolis employment law cases and SSDI claims are our first priority.  I have practiced law in Indiana for almost two decades.  My law firm represents workers who have experienced unlawful discrimination, retaliation or termination in the workplace.  A large part of my practice is spent assisting employees in recovering unpaid overtime, minimum wages and other types of unpaid wage issues, such as commissions, vacation pay and severance.  I also assist individuals in obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

I began my career as a defense lawyer at one of Indiana's largest law firms, representing employers.  After a while, I found that I didn't want to defend the people who were wronging honest workers—and switched sides to become a plaintiff lawyer and represent employees.  Because of this, I have a distinct advantage in knowing how and why your employer may have been cheating you out of your wages.  In 2010, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.  Today, the cancer is in full remission.  As a result of my experience with cancer, I expanded my practice to include SSDI benefits.  I know firsthand how it feels to be diagnosed with a lifethreatening illness that could result in no longer being able to work and earn an income for my family.

Is Your Indiana Employer Stealing Your Wages From Right Under Your Nose?

As important as it is to love your job, very few people work simply because they like it; we work because we need to earn money, make a living and support ourselves. Unfortunately, some dishonest employers engage in wage theft and try to cheat hardworking individuals out of the full paychecks that they have rightfully earned. Other workers end up disabled and out of work; They apply for Social Security Disability benefits, and after months of waiting for an answer, receive a flat out denial.

You May Not Even Realize You Have an Overtime or Unpaid Wage Claim

Many of our clients come to us because of other employment issues they are concerned about, such as violations of the Family Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. While we do not handle those types of cases (we are, however, happy to point you in the right direction), we will frequently figure out during your free initial consultation that you're also dealing with wage and hour issue that you didn't even know about. We have helped hourly workers from Kokomo to West Lafayette to Terre Haute fight for and reclaim the money they have rightfully earned.

Do you think you may have an overtime or unpaid wage claim? These types of issues are common with individuals who are:

  • Restaurant and other workers who receive tips
  • Independent contractors
  • Call center employees
  • Construction workers
  • Computer and IT workers
  • Secretaries and administrative personnel

Trying to Understand Why Your Disability Claim Was Denied?

You've been working hard for your entire life, but suddenly, things have changed. You've been diagnosed with a serious disease or condition and you're going to be out of work for the foreseeable future - possibly forever. Social Security Disability benefits were designed for individuals like yourself who were in the workforce for a while and paid into Social Security while you were employed. 

If You're Suffering From a Total Disability, You Should Not Accept a SSDI Claim Denial

You deserve to receive the disability benefits you are entitled to, but you may feel completely confused if you applied and received a denial. The truth is, if even one small thing is wrong with your application, the SSA will usually deny you benefits. With Gibbons Legal Group on your side, you can appeal that denial and give yourself a fighting chance at a stable financial future and more importantly, peace of mind.
