Areas of Practice

Accomplished. Hard-working. Dedicated.


Employment law is a complex and rapidly changing field. At Hardwick Benfer, LLC, we take pride in the depth of our knowledge and experience handling a variety of workplace challenges. We serve clients throughout eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey and are dedicated to giving them the highest-quality legal representation. We treat each of our clients with dignity and respect, recognizing that no two are alike and that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution.

With an unwavering commitment to providing excellent legal representation and a rigorous code of ethics, we take pride in the quality of our work as litigators, negotiators, and counselors. We are particularly proud that most of our clients are referred to us by current and former clients or by attorneys who have sat across the table or courtroom from us in the past.

Hardwick Benfer focuses its practice on the following:

  • Employment law — This complex area of law includes discrimination and harassment, retaliation, whistleblowing, wrongful termination, leaves of absence/family medical leave, unpaid wages and compensation, employment, severance, and non-compete agreements and layoffs/closings. We work hard to protect our clients’ rights and interests in these matters.
  • Title IX — We have experience with Title IX and have successfully resolved sex discrimination claims for students.
  • Small business consulting — Workplace investigations, training, handbooks and policies, employee relations management, and commercial litigation are all under the umbrella of small business consulting. Companies rely on us to guide them through such issues as they arise.
  • Arbitration — Not every case needs to go to court. Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution by a neutral third party in an informal proceeding. Virginia Hardwick is an arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association.

Employment law and our related areas of practice are complicated and nuanced…so let us help.  We are here to shoulder the weight of your legal concerns.

Call us today at 267-810-0192 or contact us online for a consultation.
