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.

Let me tell you why I love my fellow lawyer Lauren Marsicano.... Lauren goes out of her way to help other people. She is always lifting others up with a kind word, and by sharing her strategies for success. She’s especially helpful to other women, supporting them in following their dreams, with both legal advice and encouragement. In my opinion, a lawyer’s ethics are as important as anything else, and Lauren sets the bar. Lauren is not only a great lawyer, but a great human being. Thank you for all that you do Lauren!
Lauren and Carolina help our Homeowners Association with various legal matters. They are always very pleasant to work with, they keep us updated on matters in a timely fashion, and most importantly they know what they're doing! These ladies are sharp!
I have been in court more times than I care to count and had five different lawyers prior to hiring Carolina. After several phone conversations, she had all disclosure documents and information going back to 2003. My first and only meeting with her was so productive. It was obvious to me she had done her homework and was fully prepared. She was meticulous, concerned, intelligent and fully engaged. She made an aggressive decision in my case and I attribute this move as the reason we were ultimately victorious.
