For 25 years, I worked as a Defense Lawyer advising companies, businesses, individual managers on employment law and how to comply with the law. And in my work as a Defense Attorney, I was always thinking about it from both the company’s point of view, but also the employee’s point of view. How would I like to be treated? What do I think is fair? What is the right course of action here? And that’s the perspective I bring to Schaefer Halleen and that’s the perspective we take to our cases.
We try to look at it from everybody’s, as many points of view as we can. And using my background as a Defense Attorney, I’m able, hopefully, to help us look at well, what would the employer be thinking? And we try to anticipate the interests and issues that might arise on the employer’s side so that we can address them and be strategic about our approach and solve the problem.

About Toni Halleen
Toni has practiced employment law since graduating from law school in 1988. The field appeals to her because in our society, our jobs can be core to our identity and well-being. Even in her early years in the 70s and 80s, Toni remembers being drawn to ideals of justice, fairness, and social equality in attending anti-discrimination marches, participating in school activism, and admiring the political satire of the Smothers Brothers (and others).
