Judgments And Settlements

The following is a list of examples of judgments and settlements in various employment cases we have handled. A "judgment" indicates that the amount was paid pursuant to a court order, typically after a trial in which the defendant lost. A "settlement" indicates that the amount was paid pursuant to a voluntary settlement agreement, sometimes with and sometimes without a trial. In instances where the cases have settled, confidentiality provisions often require us not to disclose the identity of the defendant. In those cases, we have provided a description of the type of employer involved.

The "amount paid" for each judgment or settlement represents the total amount paid by the defendant, some of which includes attorneys fees, costs and interest. This list provides examples of our past cases and is in no way intended as a guarantee of results or as an estimate of the worth or value of your case. Every case has to be evaluated on a highly individualized basis, driven by several factors that we would discuss with any prospective client.
