Employment Discrimination

We represented a U.S. Secret Service officer who received a voicemail informing him that he was denied a promotion because the Service already promoted a sufficient number of employees of his race and gender. We filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and after an investigation that favored the Secret Service, we filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging race and gender discrimination. After extensive discovery, mediation, and months before trial, we negotiated a settlement in which our client received $100,000, (despite the fact that the promotion would not have entitled him to a raise), restoration of his career status, and a choice of his work location for the next seven years. In addition, the government paid his legal fees in the case.
