Pitre & Associates successfully negotiates $55,000 settlement in client’s [1] disability discrimination suit

September 1, 2019

After being denied a reasonable accommodation that resulted in tremendous personal stress and anxiety, the client contacted Pitre & Associates to assist her with her discrimination lawsuit.  Pitre & Associates zealously represented the client through a lengthy EEOC process and was able to settle the matter without the need for a hearing.  The settlement agreement included restoration of 45 leave hours and a monetary award totaling $55,000. 

The client had the following to add to this success story:

I was very pleased with the way that Mr. Pitre and Ms. de Vera handled my case.  They were always available and responsive when I had questions or concerns to discuss issues related to the case. They were very compassionate and empathetic about sensitive issues associated with my disability. They eased a lot of my emotional stress during a very difficult time. They provided guidance along every step in a difficult path and it feels like we became family along the way.  I love that the firm kept me well informed about my case and provided timely updates. I wouldn't hesitate to use this firm again if needed and I highly recommend anyone who is searching for a top-notch law firm contact Pitre & Associates.
