HOW WE'VE HELPED
We can't tell you about all our cases, but this page gives you an idea of the type of work we do. Litigation is not the best path for every client, but when it is time to take your case to state or federal court I am ready to do so.
Wadley, et al. v. University of Iowa, et al.
I quit a comfortable job at a successful law firm in the big city to work on this case. I couldn't turn down the opportunity to litigate against the state of Iowa and the University of Iowa in federal court.
We are battling to vindicate the federal civil rights of student athletes impacted by race discrimination in the Hawkeye Football Program. The University has made multiple admissions acknowledging racial bias in the Program, but the Athletic Department and certain coaches shamefully refuse to accept accountability.
Reyes v. HTH Companies, Inc.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that male-on-male sexual harassment is unlawful in Oncale v. Sundowner Offshore Services, Inc.
Sexual harassment in the workplace (or anywhere) is NEVER okay, regardless of your gender identity.
College: Sexual + Physical Misconduct Case
I've represented many college student survivors of sexual misconduct including rape and harassment.
This case typifies institutional betrayal and what many survivors who report abuse experience– retaliation.
Read about the isolation, harassment, and bias experienced by victims of sexual harassment here.
High School Athletics: Equity in Participation
I represent student athletes of all ages. If you are being denied equal access or opportunities (e.g. because of gender or race), we can help you speak up.
I represent a current high school student and a recent high school graduate brave enough to stand up to their school districts and their coaches.
Walker v. UnitedHealthcare, et al.
This race discrimination and retaliation case was originally filed in Polk County District Court. As it turns out, UnitedHealthcare has employees sign arbitration agreements in new-hire paperwork.
Large companies compel arbitration because they think they have an advantage when they avoid local judges and juries. No matter, our American Arbitration Association (AAA) Hearing was held in April 2022.
