The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale is one of the most credentialed employment law firms in South Florida. Our firm handles all types of employment law cases, including sexual harassment, hostile work environment, wage-and-hour claims, sex discrimination and other discrimination claims, gay and lesbian rights, and retaliation claims.

Firm founders and shareholders Bill and Karen Coolman Amlong are well known in South Florida courtrooms and among liberal Democratic and feminist circles in the state. Bill Amlong is a former investigative reporter for The Miami Herald who argued a landmark employment discrimination case - Faragher v. City of Boca Raton - before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1998. Karen Coolman Amlong was the first woman to be elected as a state legislator from Broward County - at age 27 - and has stayed very active in promoting women's rights in Florida.

Above all, we are trial lawyers. Our opponents know we are willing to try employment law cases, and we obtain settlements that are generally better than those obtained by lawyers with a reputation for being afraid to go to court.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
