Testimonials & Victories – Our Clients Tell Our Story Best
Female employee of large bank in pregnancy discrimination case:
My experience with the Firm was empowering because I know that many women out there are too scared of standing up for what’s right out of fear of losing their job, or not being let back into the industry. Women need to know there’s a place they can go to get what they deserve.
Female executive in gender/pregnancy discrimination case against large investment bank:
Employee in sexual orientation discrimination litigation:
Everyone I worked with at the Firm was well informed and really gave me the full picture of the scenario and made it clear they had my best interest at heart. They wanted me to make informed decisions — they earned my trust and still have it.
