Attorney Joan Herrington

About Me

I represent employees who've been wrongfully terminated because the loss of income is only one part of their damages. When we introduce ourselves, we say things like, "Hi, I'm Joan. I'm a lawyer" or "Hi, I'm Joe, I'm a carpenter." Our jobs are part of our identity, so when an employer fires an employee, the employee's sense of self is also lost. The emotional distress from being fired can be devastating.
