We are Employee Rights Attorneys dedicated to upholding the rights of workers. Recognizing the power that employers, and their lawyers, have over employees, we started a law firm to balance out that power — going toe to toe with companies large and small to fight for employee rights.
Our path to protecting the rights of Florida workers began in the 1990s when employee rights were rapidly changing. Employees were finally allowed the right to trial by jury in employment cases.
While working in the corporate world, Steven Wenzel observed employers always seemed to have the upper hand in employment law disputes. He wanted to give employees a strong voice of their own, which is why he started a law firm and then met Matthew Fenton, who was clerking for a federal judge and seeing the inequities in action right in the courtroom. As soon as he finished his clerkship, Mr. Fenton was asked to join in the fight, and soon after, became partner.
Luis A. Cabassa, a well-respected litigator and co-chair with Mr. Fenton of the Labor and Employment section of the Hillsborough County Bar, had a genuine passion for representing employees. He joined forces with the firm to battle powerful companies and help workers get the justice they deserve.
We have witnessed the illegal acts some companies got away with because they could afford better attorneys. We started the firm to stand up to the tyrant’s that big businesses would hire.
Wenzel, Fenton, Cabassa, P.A. has grown and broadened our ability to help employees across the state, and currently has ten employment lawyers, with resources to take on any size employer while being able to keep a close relationship with our clients.
We help the victims of employee rights violations and do everything in our power to get our clients the retribution they deserve. We are dedicated to holding employers responsible for any employment laws they break, resulting in legal, healthy working environments for workers across industries.
WORKPLACE ISSUES AFFECT FAMILIES
Most families rely on a regular paycheck. But we understand that your job is more than just a paycheck. It is part of who you are and what you do. With a significant amount of your life spent at the workplace, you have to sacrifice time with your family, which can take a toll. When issues come up in the workplace, from discrimination to unpaid wages, it can have both an emotional and financial effect, and both you and your family. We understand you are experiencing a tough time, but know you are not alone.
Bad things happen to good employees. But no matter how skilled you are at your job or the recognition you receive, anyone can become a victim of illegal workplace actions. Employers are looking out for their best interests, and at Wenzel Fenton Cabassa, P.A., we are working hard for yours.
We tackle any workplace violation aggressively and with you and your family in mind.
WHAT IT’S LIKE WORKING WITH OUR FIRM

Know that when you come to us, you are going to talk to an experienced attorney who understands what you are going through.
Our employment lawyers are with you throughout the process and strive to make you as comfortable as possible. We will explain everything to you in detail and keep in contact with you each step of the way.
