We are a feminist litigation firm dedicated to fighting harassment, discrimination and abuse in healthcare and the workplace. We have also teamed up with trailblazing victims’ rights law firm C.A. Goldberg PLLC to create the Survivors Law Project, fighting sex abuse and those who enable it. 

Our clients come to us in some of the most dire situations of their lives – being harassed, demeaned, assaulted, and gaslit into believing that their traumatic experiences weren’t so bad. Emotions and stakes are high, and too often in these situations, victims are forced to re-traumatize themselves by speaking to unempathetic, out-of-touch lawyers. Susan founded Crumiller after experiencing discrimination herself, feeling the same emotions and pressure that our clients feel. Sensitive issues require sensitive solutions, so we listen, we validate, we contextualize, we help find clarity, and then we dive headfirst into getting our clients the justice they deserve.

We have rigorous standards; the payoff is the opportunity to work with a truly top-notch team. The most important thing is that you are nice, and secondly, that you are sharp. We like to think and move fast, and we need people who can keep up. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are paramount. We go overboard to keep clients in the loop, and we are a positive, collaborative team. You must be a person who is motivated to excellence, both intellectually and emotionally; our work is driven by our passion.
