We sued an international technology company that was systematically replacing its older workers with Millennials as part of a youth branding campaign. Our litigation spawned dozens of copy-cat cases across the Country and helped bring the company's age discrimination to an end.
We filed a class action lawsuit against an international company forcing many of its workers to choose between their prescription medications and their jobs. Our lawsuit was instrumental in ending that unlawful practice so employees could take their medications without fear of being fired.
When a major police department fired a 30-year veteran officer for breaking the blue wall of silence and reporting other officers who had badly beaten an African-American, we went to trial and secured a jury verdict that restored our client's good name and reputation.
When an international medical center was forcing its employees to sign agreements that unlawfully waived important legal rights to access the court system, we filed a systemic discrimination case and fought for four years to bring that practice to an end.
