About Al's Practice

Albert L. Vreeland is a founding member and Managing Shareholder of Lehr Middlebrooks Vreeland & Thompson, P.C. Al has represented employers in the entire range of employment litigation from Title VII, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, OSHA and ERISA to claims under the First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, and the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses. His cases have ranged from the claims of a single disgruntled employee to statewide, regional, and nationwide attacks on his clients' hiring, promotion, termination, pay and benefits practices. Al also defends his clients before state and federal appellate courts.

In addition to his litigation practice, Al regularly counsels clients on preventive employment measures and on handling risk-laden employment decisions. His counseling practice has an emphasis on issues of corporate restructuring, such as sales, acquisitions and reductions-in-force. Al works with clients to analyze the risks of proposed corporate changes, including the risk of union accretion, employee benefit liability, WARN obligations, and adverse EEO impact.

Born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Al received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University, where he was a teaching assistant in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations. He received his law degree with honors from the University of Michigan Law School, where he was an editor of the Michigan Law Review. Al is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in Alabama and before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits and the United States Supreme Court.
