Jyllian Bradshaw concentrates her practice on representing management in a broad range of employment issues, labor matters, litigation, and counseling.  She represents employers in collective bargaining and union matters, as well as the defense of employment disputes, such as claims of discrimination, retaliation, whistleblowing, and compensation violations.

With her extensive knowledge and experience regarding compliance issues in the workplace, Jyllian regularly counsels management on state and federal workplace laws, leave laws, FMLA, ADA, and affirmative action compliance.  She also advises employers on strategies for reductions-in-staff, restructuring, and wage and hour issues.

As former general counsel to the Dayton City School District and a former high school teacher in Orange County, Florida, Jyllian is particularly well-positioned to assist education clients with resolving complex legal issues and providing guidance on day-to-day matters and policy decisions, both student-related and employee-related.  Further, she has deep experience assisting educational institutions with compliance issues such as special education, student records privacy, and student code of conduct matters.  She is also a Level 2 Title IX certified investigator.

An Orlando native, Jyllian enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and two children.
