Our Lawyers Counsel Clients About the Full Range of Discrimination Claims

The Firm's employment law practice covers the spectrum of situations where unlawful discrimination can adversely affect a claimant's job prospects or career: recruiting and hiring decisions, compensation and bonuses, promotions and advancement, working conditions or layoff and termination. Our experience with employment discrimination claims allows us to assess and evaluate discrimination in many forms:

  • Age.
  • Sex.
  • Sexual orientation.
  • National origin.
  • Religion.
  • Disability.
  • Pregnancy.

An important decision in any employment discrimination case is the choice of forum. Should your claims be presented in state court or federal court? Where are the key witnesses and documents located? Will our client be favored by a particular provision of state or federal law? The Firm's experience with the resolution of discrimination claims in a variety of settings helps us tailor the choice of forum and early strategic decisions to the specific demands of a given case.

Our past litigation successes include a $1.5 million jury verdict for discrimination based on nationality against a hospital and a $400,000 disability discrimination settlement in favor of a registered nurse.

Although we prepare each case as though it will be tried to a jury, we achieve many of our best results through negotiated settlements, including severance agreements. Our lawyers know how to use the evidence developed in litigation as effective leverage in settlement discussions and mediation.
