Practice Areas


Welby, Stoltenberg, Cimballa & Cook, LLC specializes in representing public sector labor organizations in nearly every aspect of the employment relationship, from negotiating and/or arbitrating terms for new labor agreements to protecting and enforcing the terms of those agreements. Our firm represents only labor; we have no management clients.

The majority of the labor organizations we represent are law enforcement groups, from police departments and corrections officers to probation officers, deputy sheriffs and other court appointed and court related employee bargaining units. Our attorneys are skilled in litigating to protect the rights of these unique employees. Our clients have dedicated their professional lives to public service, and the inherent danger of their professions can and has resulted in the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in the service of those they protect.
