Van Kampen Law’s Winning Formula

Right Law Firm

Van Kampen Law strives to be regarded as the most aggressive employment litigation firm in North Carolina. That said, the firm also works effectively and in good faith with area employers to settle matters amicably and confidentially if possible.

While litigation may ultimately be necessary, Van Kampen Law’s initial approach to employers emphasizes diplomacy, open-mindedness, and mutual interests.

Right Clients

Today, even the most basic employment discrimination cases involve the production of “electronically stored information.” The days of parties exchanging boxes of documents are over.

Now, both the Federal and North Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure require the parties to exchange documents electronically. We have the technology and expertise to navigate the vagaries of electronically stored information.

Right Case

Attorney Josh Van Kampen often does more than zealously advocate for his clients, he enjoys taking extra time to get to know them.

“I’m always meeting amazing people that happen to be caught in dire straits. I try to be more than their legal counselor, and by doing that, I’m a more passionate advocate.”

Statewide NC
plaintiff-Side Employment Law Firm

Historically, North Carolina’s courts were widely recognized as some of the most conservative in the nation. As a result, Van Kampen Law is only a small handful of firms in the state to exclusively practice plaintiff-side employment law.

Van Kampen Law’s primary clients are professional and executive-level victims of employment discrimination and sexual harassment. However, the firm recognizes that it is imperative to combat discrimination from the factory floor to the board room, and its attorneys pick their cases accordingly.

Van Kampen Law strategically takes on fewer employment law cases so that it can devote sufficient resources to match up favorably against the large defense firms employers invariably hire. By concentrating its practice exclusively on employment law in North Carolina, Van Kampen Law has established solid working relationships with many of the area’s employment law defense attorneys and in-house counsels, which often facilitates early settlement. To that end, many of the cases referred to Van Kampen Law are from defense attorneys against whom the firm has litigated.

I had an excellent experience with Mr Josh Vankampen and his staff (Carmen and Anna specifically). They were very responsive and started working on my case the same day I contacted them. They were persistent and effective. My case was settled thru mediation and given the circumstances I was pleased. Josh is aggressive yet appropriate and thorough. My case involved employment law and I have No reservations in recommending this firm.
