Experience And Synergy You Simply Will Not Find At Any Other Law Firm

Not only have our two founding attorneys been practicing law for more than 68 years combined, and married to each other for most of that time, they each have tried well over 100 jury trials. Bill Amlong argued and won a precedent-setting sexual harassment case before the United States Supreme Court. Karen Coolman Amlong obtained the first million-dollar-plus sexual harassment judgment in Florida.

The Amlongs bring to their practice experience gained from prior careers as a prize-winning investigative reporter for The Miami Herald and an iconic feminist politician.

As the first woman elected to the Florida House of Representatives from Broward County, Karen Coolman Amlong knows from the inside how laws are made and how government operates. As one of the first women in a predominantly white-male legislature, she appreciates the role of an outsider as well as that of an insider.

Bill Amlong likewise got a close-up education about how all three branches of government worked as a reporter who covered and investigated the government in which Karen Colman Amlong participated.

As husband-and-wife, as well as law partners, they have a 24/7 focus on what they do. The whole that results is a lot more than the sum of the parts.

These unique perspectives, The Amlong's extensive record of litigating and trying cases and the diverse team of legal professionals who work with them, make for experience and synergy you simply will not find at any other law firm.

On The Cutting Edge Of Employment Law

The Amlong Firm's lawyers push the edge of the envelope. Bill Amlong argued successfully to the U.S. Supreme Court that employers — including big corporations and governments — should be responsible when their supervisors create hostile environments for employees under their control. That stripped employers of the defense that no one at the top knew what was happening at Ground Zero. Karen Amlong was fighting, as far back as in the 1990s as a cooperating attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), against Florida's homophobic ban on adoptions by gay and lesbian couples. One of her GBLT cases — a nasty lesbian-vs.-straight-grandparents fight over the custody of the daughter of a same-sex couple, the birth mother of which had died of lupus — was made into a movie.
