Dave Redden has been a strong advocate for employees for over a decade, helping them retain their jobs, leave their jobs with dignity, or assert their legal rights after being unfairly terminated.

Dave has counseled with and zealously advocated for employees in all manner of employment-related matters, including employment discrimination, retaliation and whistleblowing, disability accommodations, medical or family leave, and minimum wage and overtime issues, as well as non-competition, non-solicitation and other contract disputes or negotiations. In each case Dave relentlessly focuses on furthering his client's goals, and his clients appreciate his ability to explain complex laws and strategies in relatable ways.

A 2010 graduate of the University of Minnesota law school with a concentration in labor & employment law, Dave has since successfully negotiated large settlements for numerous clients, has tried multiple lawsuits to verdict, and has successfully argued cases in both state and federal courts of appeals.
