Receiving a notice of an employment discrimination/sexual harassment lawsuit is unsettling news at best. We address employer defense against allegations of discrimination and work with you closely at every step, from explaining your rights and obligations, giving realistic assessments on possible outcomes and developing sound, considered strategies to defend your case. We will also guide you on the best and most lawful way to remedy any existing discrimination, including hostile work environments and sexual harassment.

Keeping You out of Court

Geralyn Noonan has an extensive litigation practice. Some claims demand litigation to protect your business.

We will make every effort to settle your case through mediation and arbitration before we go to court.
