A lawyer is required to provide legal representation to people who want to be injured in a wrongful termination lawsuit.
In the last decade, the law has evolved to ensure that lawyers representing victims and their families get access to legal representation.
Some of the most well-known wrongful termination lawyers include: · John R. Stumpf, a former U.S. Supreme Court justice, who represented the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York City.
· Johnnie Cochran, a veteran lawyer with extensive experience in wrongful termination cases, who has been called one of the “top wrongful termination attorneys in the country.”
· Stephen F. Austin, who previously represented the mother of slain U.N. employee Chris Stevens and the family of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
· Peter Zeidenberg, who represents victims of child sexual abuse and other serious cases of sexual assault.
· Jeffrey E. Goldberg, who also represents victims and has been accused of sexually abusing two women.
· Christopher W. Schulze, who recently completed a two-year trial in a child pornography case in Florida.
· Thomas A. M. Kline, who was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in America in 2015.
The list of recent winners of the prestigious National Law Journal’s Barbershop Award also includes: · Thomas E. Koehler, a leading New York civil rights lawyer who represented more than 30 victims of NYPD officers, and the mother and sister of Trayvon Martin, who died at the hands of George Zimmerman, who later pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
· James P. Sienkiewicz, who successfully defended a woman who was fired from a medical office because she refused to give up her newborn baby and was subsequently shot and killed.
· Daniel A. Ozer, a California civil rights attorney who represented a man who was shot and critically wounded by an armed man in the parking lot of his restaurant.
· Scott S. Schuessler, who in the 1980s represented the family and the sister of Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in a police chokehold while in a jail cell.
· Michael M. Biesecker, who specializes in wrongful death lawsuits in which the victims were children and who is the former director of litigation for the National Law Institute.
