Sexual Harassment Out of the Shadows, Out of the Closet, Under the Klieg Lights

For decades, I’ve been helping men and women fight back against sexual harassment in the workplace. For far too long, far too many clients wanted to go away quietly, willing to accept money from the employer in exchange for silence about wrongdoing. In the entertainment industry. In law firms. In banking and in technology. In medical offices. In factories. In retail. Everywhere, in fact.

But times are a-changin’!

Yes, for lots of clients it will always make sense to go quietly, but only with the power that comes from knowing they don’t have to, and that they can make a very public statement about what their employers allowed to happen,without being banned for life from an industry or field they love.

For others, a public stand is the ultimate vindication of their rights. Whichever way they choose to go, we are here to help.
