Reeve and Mary Shima formed Reeve Shima in 2001 to devote their efforts
exclusively to representation of employers. |
Our goal is to assist employers in solving
their problems by providing sound advice and practical solutions. We assist
employers in the following areas:
- Worker's Compensation
- Discipline and Termination Matters
- Family and Medical leave
- Disability discrimination (ADA)
- Employment discrimination
- Employment counseling and policy formation
- Executive compensation
We represent employers in all phases of workers
compensation. We appear regularly before the Board of Industrial Insurance
Appeals, and the Superior and Appellate Courts of Washington.
We provide advice to employers during all stages of the employment relationship
beginning with hiring, compensation issues, creation of policies and manuals,
discipline, leave and return to work problems and termination. When the
relationship deteriorates, we defend the employer vigorously.
As a firm, we are proud of our ability to craft creative solutions to workers
compensation and employment problems and to tailor those solutions to the
specific goals, needs, and budgets of our clients. We believe we are skilled
counselors and when necessary litigators.
We concentrate on representing employers in the Northwest. We represent a
variety of employers including school districts, hospitals, cities, counties,
retail establishments, manufacturers and service industries.
