A lawyer can investigate the incident at the heart of your case, act quickly to protect your rights and preserve evidence to support your case, help you gather important documents such as medical or employment records, and help ensure you get the care or resources you need after an accident or injury. A lawyer can offer objective advice and handle the stressful details of your case so that you can focus on your life, your family, and your recovery.

Top Reasons to Hire Cates and Mahoney

Southern Illinois Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Sexual harassment cases can be very challenging to pursue. You know what happened and what it meant, but your employer will try to twist the facts and make you look bad to avoid having to pay a settlement or verdict. You may have been the victim of unlawful retaliation — transferred, demoted, or even fired because you spoke up — or afraid that this will happen to you if you exercise your rights.

Our lawyers have significant experience and success trying sexual harassment cases in state and federal courts in Illinois. We understand the nuances of sexual harassment laws and how to build a strong case on your behalf so that you get the justice you deserve after being subjected to sexually offensive conduct in your workplace. Contact Cates Mahoney, LLC today for a free consultation about your sexual harassment case.
