2 NAMWOLF Labor & Employment Pac The Labor and Employment Pac is a national network of highly skilled and pre-screened minority and women owned law firms with significant expertise representing employers in labor and employment matters. Member firms have experience in a host of practice areas that fall under the labor and employment umbrella including (for example), litigation of discrimination, retaliation, harassment, ERISA and wage and hour claims; defense of class actions; trade secret litigation; affirmative action, OFCCP, Sarbanes-Oxley; OSHA compliance; Union negotiations and Arbitrations; training, counseling, handbooks and conducting internal investigations. Through the Pac, NAMWOLF brings together law firms and major employers to create mutually beneficial partnerships, develop cost effective workplace solutions, provide effective legal defense and achieve winning results. About NAMWOLF Founded in 2001, NAMWOLF is a nonprofit trade association comprised of minority and women-owned law firms who have exhibited excellence in the legal profession, and other interested parties throughout the United States. Many corporations and public entities committed to diversifying their outside law firm ranks have focused on the utilization of minority and female attorneys at majority firms. However, the most effective way for corporations and public entities to increase diversity in the legal profession is to increase their utilization of minority and women-owned law firms. NAMWOLF s mission is to promote true diversity in the legal profession by fostering the development of long lasting relationships between preeminent minority and women-owned law firms and corporations and public entities. About NAMWOLF s Law Firm Membership NAMWOLF Law Firm Members must complete an extensive application and screening process before they can be admitted for membership. Law Firm Candidates must have a significant corporate law practice and exhibit excellence in the quality of law practiced, as evidenced by corporate references, presence on outside counsel approved lists and panels for national or regional corporations, Martindale-Hubbell AV Peer Review Rating, and other awards and memberships. Law firms must be headquartered in the United States or Puerto Rico and have a minimum of three full-time attorneys.

REPRESENTATIVE EXPERIENCE Won jury trial involving a litigious former employee of a Fortune 500 Energy Company, who sued our client ve times. Plaintiff claimed a breach of prior settlement agreement, asserting claims of retaliation, defamation, and emotional distress. The matter was initially dismissed during summary judgment. On appeal in the Seventh Circuit, a small portion of the case was remanded. With several hundreds of thousands of dollars of attorney s fees at stake, and after a two and a half day trial, the jury deliberated for approx. two hours before rendering a verdict that vindicated our Client. The Plaintiff again appealed to the Seventh Circuit, which subsequently affirmed the jury verdict in its entirety. Won summary judgment for a large insurance company in a case where the plaintiff asserted a claim of pregnancy discrimination alleging that she was denied immediate access to a lactation room because she hadn t lled out the proper paper work. On March 13, 2014, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the lower court decision granting summary judgment. Plaintiff led a petition for en banc review, with amicus support from the ACLU and the EEOC. In June 2014, the Eight Circuit court granted the petition for rehearing in part, issued a new opinion, closed an issue concerning the 7th Circuit that had been only partially addressed in the original decision, and again affirmed the lower court decision granting of summary judgment in our favor. Represented large client when the plaintiff was discharged for repeated attitude and performance problems. Plaintiff claimed her termination was an act of age and/or disability discrimination. The matter proceeded to hearing. We resolved this matter satisfactorily for a settlement of under $10,000. Represented nationwide bank where a former employee's spouse sued the bank for defamation. The Plaintiff alleged that the bank made defamatory statements about him to the police. The bank called the police when the Plaintiff entered the bank s branch (where his wife was formerly employed) just a few hours after she was terminated. He acted in a strange and threatening manner. We tried the case to a jury. The jury found in our favor and concluded that our client was not liable to the Plaintiff. Represented a Fortune 500 employer in a jury trial involving claims of wrongful termination in violation of public policy (whistleblower) and breach of implied employment contract. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the employer on the whistleblower claim and hung on the contract claim, which the parties settled. REPRESENTATIVE CLIENTS Aetna, Inc. AIG (EPL) Auto Zone, Inc.
