Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Defending Victims of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment in the workplace has been illegal for decades, and increased attention to sexual harassment in recent years has increased public support for victims and survivors. The law is on your side. Public opinion is on your side. And victims and survivors need to have advocates on their side.
Some individuals want representation publicly, calling out sexual harassment and holding individuals and companies accountable in court. Other individuals want to ensure accountability and consequences for wrongdoers and compensation for their damages and suffering without publicizing their experiences.
