Guiding You Through The Legal Process
Any person who has experienced Employment Discrimination faces serious challenges. Many of our clients are worried about more than holding their Employer accountable. For example, many clients are concerned that bringing a discrimination claim may hurt their future career prospects. We understand the delicate nature of these claims, and will place a high priority on maintaining discretion and attorney-client confidentiality.
In your free initial consultation, we will listen closely as you describe your situation. If we agree to take your case, we will conduct further investigation to learn more about the facts of your case. Following our investigation, we will write a demand letter to your current or former Employer, requesting all available damages under the law.
Most discrimination cases are resolved through negotiation or mediation. While litigation is not common, our lawyers have significant trial experience. This makes a difference, as Employers, and their legal counsel, understand that we are strong courtroom advocates. Our trial experience sets us apart from many other employment law firms. However your case is eventually resolved, you can be comfortable placing your claim in our hands.
