While Crumiller P.C. is proud of each and every successful outcome we have achieved for our clients, we’ve highlighted a few cases that we feel are particularly indicative of the problems we help our clients overcome.
We secured substantial monetary compensation for our client who had been subject to a hostile work environment, including gender-based slurs and lewd activity.
Our client was told that, because she needed a few additional months to recover from post-childbirth medical complications, her job was no longer guaranteed for the following term. We intervened and quickly secured the reassurance they should have given her from the beginning – that she would not be illegally penalized for the woeful task of propagating the human species.
Our client came to us after her boss sexually assaulted her. Quietly and discretely, we were able to support our client in identifying other women who he had harassed, uncovering a serious pattern of abuse targeting a vulnerable population. Through litigation, we secured a substantial six-figure recovery for our clients, one of whom said she could finally sleep soundly for the first time in years. Even better, inside sources say that the behavior has stopped.
Our client was fired, for totally pretextual reasons and without warning, shortly after announcing her pregnancy. First, we made sure she had the health insurance arrangements she needed to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. Then we put the fear of god in her employer and negotiated a substantial settlement payment, enabling her to enjoy a safe and peaceful labor and delivery, and a peaceful bonding time with her (now healthy and happy!) baby.
Our client had secured a new job after being forced out by homophobic threats and slurs. However, the harassment continued when his employer tried to enforce a questionable “non-compete” clause, jeopardizing his new position. We shut that baloney down swiftly and our client was able to move on in peace.
A well-known actor terminated our client and the only other woman in a nine-person technician team (he had refused for years to employ women in the role they occupied). We pursued a discrimination case and, although the studio fought hard, we secured a substantial recovery.
Our client was suffering worse and worse mental health effects as a result of her supervisor’s ongoing sexually inappropriate behavior. We immediately reached out to the employer and discretely secured a period of paid leave while we negotiated on our client’s behalf. Ultimately we secured our client a substantial enough recovery that she felt free to leave her job and she was able to take the time she needed to make new arrangements without financial insecurity or stress.
We successfully fought off trumped-up disciplinary charges brought by the Department of Education after our client faced clear retaliation for taking legitimate intermittent FMLA leave.
