The Dallas-Fort Worth Employment Lawyers Association (“DFW-NELA”) is an affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association. Membership in DFW-NELA is open to Dallas-Fort Worth area employment lawyers who fight for the rights of workers.
DFW-NELA advances employee rights and serves lawyers who advocate for equality and justice in workplaces across the metroplex.
Workers will be paid at least a living wage in an environment free of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and capricious employment decisions; employers will fulfill their promises to provide retirement, health, and other benefits; workers’ safety and livelihood will not be compromised for the sake of corporate profit and interests; and individuals will have effective legal representation to enforce their rights to a fair and just workplace, adequate remedies, and a right to trial by jury.

United Against Injustice
Employment law is often an uphill battle against well financed businesses and legal teams. By sharing our experience, knowledge, and support, DFW-NELA levels the playing field. By working together, we improve our ability to represent victims of workplace injustice. Through our events, we ensure the spread of knowledge and skill through the plaintiff employment bar.
