Age Discrimination Litigation

Age discrimination claims can yield big returns. Settlements and jury awards are much higher than those for race, sex, and disability claims. But the lack of direct evidence can make it difficult to survive summary judgment and win fair compensation.

Thankfully, respected litigators L. Steven Platt and Cathy Ventrell-Monsees know what it takes to win age cases. They have tried over 100 age cases and submitted more than 50 amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court and circuit courts. Within Age Discrimination Litigation, they reveal proven strategies, procedures, law, and forms to help you:

•   Select winning cases
•   Manage the charge-filing process
•   Represent multiple plaintiffs
•   Beat statutes of limitation
•   Draft effective motions
•   Focus your discovery
•   Resist attempts to limit evidence
•   Draft jury instructions
•   Overcome defenses
•   Protect attorney's fees
