Gary L. Ingram
Gary Ingram is a board certified attorney with more than forty years of experience in successfully handling labor and employment law issues, civil rights litigation, personal injury litigation, and Texas non-subscriber litigation. Gary has repeatedly received peer recognition as being among the “best,” “top,” and “super” attorneys in the state in his areas of practice and has received personal accolades from trial judges before whom he has appeared. For more than twenty years, Gary served as the statewide leader of his law firm’s Labor & Employment Practice Group, which has grown to include L&E lawyers in six offices. In addition to being recognized for his legal skills and qualifications, Gary has been honored for maintaining high levels of ethical standards, professionalism and legal scholarship.
Gary has extensive experience in traditional labor relations issues arising under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and has handled numerous workplace accident and safety-related citation contests under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Act (OSHA). He regularly assists employers responding to EEOC investigations and related litigation involving discrimination and retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and other workplace protection statutes and regulations. Successfully defending large wage and hour collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Equal Pay Act are among his many accomplishments. Gary’s experience extends into the public sector, having defended civil rights and whistleblower suits, negotiating labor agreements with police associations, and successfully resolving department-wide wage and benefits claims with law enforcement and firefighting associations. Gary’s advocacy skills in the courtroom have benefited his clients in non-subscriber injury claim arbitrations, in obtaining or resisting enforcement of non-compete agreements, and in presenting briefs and oral arguments to appellate tribunals.
