At Marsicano + Leyva PLLC, we understand the federal and state laws affecting the rights of both individuals and businesses in the employment context. We provide compassionate representation for employees whose rights have been violated and whose complaints have been ignored by their company’s human resource department. However, we also provide aggressive representation for employers (both small and large) who face accusations of illegal employment practices. Businesses can also take advantage of our guidance and advice to develop proactive policies and agreements that protect your company’s interests and decrease the risk of future litigation.
Our attorneys are experienced in representing and counseling private and public sector employers across numerous industries on federal and state labor, employment, safety and immigration laws. Our team works proactively to handle issues before they become problems. And if they do become problems, we can take a matter successfully through the litigation process, keeping your business concerns paramount.
We are dedicated to building long-term relationships with our clients and are committed to efficiency. We want to fully understand your business. When faced with labor and employment issues, we consider and analyze the implications for your company’s operations. As a full-service law firm, we have the resources to help in virtually every legal area.
We also handle investigations and audits by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Florida Commission on Human Relations, the U.S. Department of Labor, and other administrative agencies. We counsel clients in union elections and unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board. In addition, we represent employers involved in arbitration, mediation, or other alternate dispute resolution forums.
Advice and Counseling
We provide legal advice on hiring, terminations, discipline, investigations, reorganizations, and other human resources matters that are tailored to your specific business needs. We can advise you on every aspect of the employment relationship. We draft, update, and review handbooks and policies and make sure they comply with the changes in law in areas such as equal employment opportunity, leave, drug testing, accommodation of disabilities, privacy and social media, compensation and benefits. We also advise clients on union issues, including assisting clients in responding to union organizing drives.
Our goal is to provide our clients with the legal tools they need to create a workplace that best utilizes a business’s most valuable asset – its employees.
We will work diligently to help you solve your labor and employment problems efficiently and effectively.

M+L PLLC handles many different real estate matters for our Home Owners Association, including but not limited to evictions, drafting and reviewing lease agreements, contract disputes, and collections on HOA dues. Let me tell you, these ladies are sharp as a tack! They are go-getters, scary smart, and an absolute delight to work with. You will be hard pressed to find more talented and professional attorneys. Carolina and Lauren work tirelessly to ensure that their clients get the results they deserve. I highly recommend Marsicano + Leyva, as they are honest, trustworthy, and dedicated attorneys.
Although I was divorced in 2003, I have been in court more times than I care to count. I have had 5 different attorneys prior to hiring Carolina Leyva, Esq. Carolina came highly recommended to me by a firm in Naples, and I can honestly say that she did not disappoint. After several phone conferences, she was in possession of all documents dating back to 2003. My first and only meeting with her was incredibly successful - it was obvious to me that she had done her homework and was fully prepared. She made an aggressive decision in my case, and I attribute this move as the reason we were ultimately victorious.
People usually ask me how I started my business. They aren't sure what the first steps are, and like them, neither was I when I first started out. Starting a business is a lot of work, and I wanted to make sure that I did it right the first time. That's why I turned to M+L PLLC. They took the time to guide me in the right direction, and they explained the process in a simple manner that was easy to understand. Instead of spending months researching what the right steps are, I was set up in a matter of days thanks to M+L. Now, Frame Tale Studios has an LLC, contracts, freelancers, and a corporate structure that allows me to focus on what I enjoy doing most.
