Hiring a Sexual Harassment Attorney: Experience Matters

best northern virginia employment lawyers There are many federal and state laws that offer protection and relief for victims of sexual harassment.  It is critical to hire an experienced sexual harassment attorney who is well-versed in navigating the maze of statutory and common law remedies available to harassment victims.  Sex harassment plaintiffs also need an attorney who can formulate an effective strategy to overcome the pitfalls that can sink a harassment case.

In sum, it is critical to hire a firm with the knowledge and experience required to maximize your recovery.  U.S. News and Best Lawyers® have named Zuckerman Law a Tier 1 firm in Litigation – Labor and Employment in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

Retaining a Sexual Harassment Lawyer: Service Matters

Sexual harassment victims deserve a compassionate advocate who will focus on their unique objectives and provide the highest level of customer service.  Before hiring an attorney, investigate the lawyer’s ratings and reputation.

You should also assess the attorney’s responsiveness. If an attorney takes a considerable amount of time to respond to an inquiry about representation, you should expect the same (if not longer) response time if you hire that attorney.  The success or failure of a claim can hinge on timing.

We are proud of our commitment to exceptional client service, including our prompt response to all client inquiries and zealous advocacy for victims of harassment.  Recently Avvo awarded Jason Zuckerman its Client Choice Award based on client reviews.  The following two reviews were provided by former clients of Jason Zuckerman concerning sexual harassment matters:

“I truly can’t say enough good things about Jason and his team – they are incredibly effective, professional, and consistently wonderful to work with, even in very high-pressure circumstances. Jason and his colleagues were exceptionally patient with and responsive to my concerns, consulting with me on every step of the process and explaining different options. Beyond their impeccable legal representation and client advocacy, I also felt personally cared for and supported during what was a particularly nightmarish experience of workplace harassment. When needed, they also devoted significant extra time and effort to my case to ensure that my interests were protected. I am incredibly grateful for their representation and wholeheartedly recommend Zuckerman Law to anyone seeking justice in employment-related matters.”

“When I sought out a DC-based attorney to represent me, I expected a competent attorney who would get me through my sexual harassment lawsuit. What I didn’t expect was to find someone like Jason: a truly outstanding attorney who made me feel like a priority, paid close attention to detail, and brought enormous expertise to the table. I chose to hire Jason to represent me after consulting seven other lawyers — and from day one, Jason was the only one who made it clear that he actually cared about me and my case. I cannot be happier that I chose Jason. He represented me with professionalism and fearlessness every step of the way. Jason always made me feel like a priority, even though he was busy with other cases/clients simultaneously. He never rushed me or pressured me, and kept me “in the loop” the entire time while we were dealing with the opposing side.”
