May The Fourth Be With You!


Julia Gannaway is a partner in the law firm of Ross l Gannaway, PLLC.  Her practice is dedicated largely to employment law in the public sector, and the firm represents only employers.  The firm's office is located in Southlake, but their clients are all around the state.  She advises clients on matters relating to investigations and disciplinary actions in Chapter 143 settings and non-Chapter 143 cities; matters relating to the Fair Labor Standards Act and Texas law regarding pay issues. Her practice involves representing clients before Federal and State courts, administrative hearings for civil service and TCOLE, and in EEOC/DOL investigations. She also moonlights as the author of numerous Public Information Act requests for rulings.

Julie Ross is a partner in the law firm of Ross l Gannaway, PLLC.  Her law practice is devoted solely to employment law, and she represents employers and management in both the public and private sector.  Julie’s practice emphasizes all aspects of employment law including assisting clients on FMLA, FLSA and ADA issues; assisting clients against claims such as wrongful discharge, employment discrimination and harassment under Title VII, ADA, ADEA and other employment statutes; training in all areas of employment law; and investigation of employee complaints.

Twenty years ago, Mike Coffey, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, was an HR manager frustrated by the low quality and poor customer service he was receiving from his company’s background screening partner. In order to better manage that relationship, Mike became an expert in background checks from the HR side of the desk. In 1999, that expertise led to the creation of Imperative, a premium background investigations firm delivering fast and friendly service. Mike has also been involved in retail and property management startups and consults with small businesses about people and process issues.  Mike serves as the newly-created Director for Business and Education Initiatives for Texas SHRM and is a past-president of FWHR.  He is also a board member for the Texas Association of Business, which is Texas' state chamber of commerce.
