"I just believe there ought to be a way to achieve justice in the workplace, and I don't mind fighting for it!"
Jody LeWitter is a partner at Siegel LeWitter Malkani and has been an attorney in private practice for 30 years. She is passionate about representing employees in discrimination and wrongful termination cases and is known for her vigorous advocacy of employees. She has had great success in court, negotiations/mediations and in arbitrations, and has been recognized by other lawyers as a "go to" employment lawyer for her determination and innovative strategies.
Jody has represented employees from all walks of life including high level executives, sales managers, corporate executive officers, factory workers, blue collar workers, high tech and white collar employees. She has represented employees in hostile environment/sexual harassment/racial harassment, disability, sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, age and pregnancy discrimination cases, as well as wrongful termination, breach of contract, misrepresentation or fraud, public policy and other cases. She primarily represents individual employees or small groups of employees.
Jody has a passion for pushing the envelope in litigation. She knows that not all employment discrimination cases involve overt discrimination, and that bringing the more difficult double standard cases is necessary to protect employees' rights in the workplace. She has used her passion for justice to prove that employees deserve protection from unlawful termination in the guise of layoffs, or firings, when comparative coworkers are not terminated. She has also used her passion for pushing the envelope to advocate for employees in the new area of family responsibilities discrimination, and has parlayed her expertise of sexual harassment in employment law to representing victims of sexual harassment in other contexts, such as protecting student victims of harassment.
