About Us

Labor, Employment, & Education Law Attorneys 

The Boyd Law Group, PLLC focuses its entire practice on employment, labor, and education law. With decades of collective experience in these areas, our legal team provides capable legal service for both employers and employees. 

Because we represent clients from both sides of the labor law spectrum, we understand all aspects and all approaches to resolving an employment dispute or issue. In each case, you will be assigned a lead attorney along with a team member who will be responsible for the progress of your case. You will always have the personalized attention you deserve.

Our team is sensitive to your needs. Whether your case is best resolved privately or through litigation in court, we will always strive to help you achieve the best possible result. Because we limit our practice primarily to labor and employment law, we can stay abreast of changes in the law and recently resolved cases that can impact your legal matter.
