Some representative comments:
"Larry Schaefer represented me in years of discrimination litigation against my former employer, culminating in a jury trial in which we won on every issue and I was awarded full damages (including punitive damages). This would not have been possible without his exceptional advocacy and trial skills, as we were opposed by one of the largest employers and the largest law firm in the Upper Midwest. I'm proud to call Larry my friend as well as my trusted legal advisor." R.L.
"While the Firm will always seek to discuss settlement if it is in the client's interest, it will not hesitate to move forward with litigation and take every step necessary to prove your case in court. I have complete confidence in the Firm's ability to handle all aspects of my claim, and to give me the best chance of holding my former employer accountable for its illegal discrimination and retaliation." D.N.
"I was devastated by my abrupt termination after over 19 years of service. I experienced a deep depression and my sense of self-worth was almost destroyed. Once the Schaefer Law Firm agreed to represent me in pursuing my claims, this feeling began to change and I was so grateful to have advocates who were not only experts in this field, but cared about me as a person." C.C.
"After years of exceptional work performance, after I passed age fifty and began to approach my 'golden years,' my former employer suddenly began to evaluate me as a poor work performer, even though I continued to make the same contributions that were always recognized and valued in the past. The Schaefer Law Firm not only forcefully presented the evidence of age discrimination of this stark contrast in treatment, but also developed evidence of a pattern of mistreatment of other older employees in similar circumstances. The result of the Firm's incredible efforts was a severance offer that was far in excess of what my former employer initially offered, which allowed me to move beyond this experience feeling as though my rights were vindicated." A.S.
"I was extremely reluctant and afraid to pursue legal claims when I knew I was being treated illegally by a former employer. The Schaefer Law Firm exhaustively analyzed and developed all of the facts necessary to prove what I went through, identified every potential legal claim, and gave me the confidence I desperately needed to stand up to my employer. The firm left no stone unturned in pursing these claims, and the result was a settlement that allowed me to put closure to the most difficult professional experience of my life. Throughout this process, the Firm's expertise, advice and compassion gave me great comfort." C.J.
