Employment Discrimination

The Firm represents numerous individuals who have been discriminated against in their employment in both federal and state courts, sometimes seeking temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunctions, and has informally negotiated resolutions without judicial intervention. The Firm has won or reached favorable resolutions in cases alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, age, personal beliefs, and status as a victim of domestic violence. The Firm has also litigated many cases alleging retaliation and sexual harassment. Given the sensitive nature of these matters, many of these cases are settled confidentially.
