Significant Sexual Harassment Settlement Obtained for Client Against Construction Company

We obtained a very significant settlement for our client in a severe sexual harassment case against a construction company.  The terms of the settlement are confidential, however, our client obtained a very significant monetary settlement rightbefore trial.  This case was heavily litigated through depositions and motions for summary judgment in order to maximize the value to our client.  Shortly before trial, the company significantly increased their settlement offer, resolving the case before trial.

Our client offered these comments about our work on this matter:

“HONEST.  He never kept me waiting. I didn’t trust attorneys, but then I met him. He will fight for you as if you were one of his own. We won even more money that we originally expected. I didn’t know that such an honest, sincere person could also be equally as aggressive and passionate until i met him. I lost the feeling of powerlessness when he sat down next to me, across the table from my used to be employer owner/millionaire. My life is forever changed due to his hard work and compassion.”

Federal Court Denies Motion for Summary Judgment Against Burrow Lee, PLLC Client in Sexual Harassment Case

In a significant sexual harassment case against a middle Tennessee employer, the employer filed a motion for summary judgment to try to dismiss the core sexual harassment and sexually hostile work environment case.  We defended against this motion for summary judgment, pointing out to the court, the extensive sexual harassment of our client.  This sexual harassment largely consisted of numerous vulgar sexual comments about our client from her direct supervisor and others.  After extensive briefing, the Court agreed with our position and denied the motion for summary judgment on the sexual harassment claim by the employer.  This was a significant victory for our client to allow this case to move forward.  The opinion on this ruling can be found at this link.

$1.5+ Million Dollar Verdict Obtained in Sexual Harassment Case Against Tennessee Doctor

In 2017 we went to trial on a case for our client in a sexual harassment/sexually hostile work environment case.  This was a 3 day trial in Rutherford County, Tennessee.  The Jury provided a verdict over $2.3 Million dollars (that was reduced to $1.5+ Million dollars by statute) against the medical clinic and the doctor.  This case was reported on here and here.

Our client reviewed our legal work as follows:

“I HIGHLY recommend Jason Lee as an attorney! I was referred to him by a friend who owns a business who has used him for years for legal issues regarding it. We took my case to trial recently which involved a sexual harassment claim against a company and we had a very successful verdict! Jason prepared me well for my deposition and trial and was focused the entire time. The best thing I did was meeting with him and, from that day on, Jason has been easy to contact, thorough, and professional. He is extremely passionate about justice and the law. He has kept me updated with every change and progress of my case. I never once felt like I was just another case file for him and I never felt like I couldn’t ask him questions or bring my concerns to him. Having an attorney who I can trust and communicate with has made the world of a difference for me and it has made this ordeal bearable. I don’t believe I would have ever made it as far with my case had I not met with Jason when I did. He kept me focused throughout the entire process. I will always be grateful for the time and effort he put into my case to make sure that I walked away with justice and peace of mind. I would use him again without question and refer him to anyone! He is definitely one of a kind and I am blessed to call him my attorney.”

Sexual Harassment Case Against National Pizza Chain: Substantial settlement received for client

In January 2018 our client received a substantial settlement for a sexual harassment case against a national pizza chain.  Our client was physically sexually harassed, causing her significant emotional distress damages.  This sexual harassment greatly affected her and caused her significant damages.

Our client said the following about this representation:

“When I first met Attorney Lee I was unaware of my rights as a employee that had undergone sexual harassment at the workplace. Within 5 months, Mr. Lee not only superseded my legal expectations but he superseded in making sure that I was okay every step of the way. The amount I was awarded was beyond my expectations and very substantial. I recommend Attorney Lee to anyone who may be aware or unaware of their rights and need expertise guidance and counsel.”
