The Amlong Firm:We Protect Employees And Their Careers

As one of the premier employment law firms in Florida, The Amlong Firm has long been protecting the rights of employees in the workplace. Our attorneys have handled virtually every employment law claim imaginable, including cases related to sexual harassment, LGBT rights, hostile work environment, unpaid wages and overtime, employer retaliation, whistle-blowing and all forms of workplace discrimination. Bill and Karen Coolman Amlong have tried well over 200 jury trials.

Our 'Secret' To Success: Passion And Experience

Helping workers enforce their rights is not just a job at The Amlong Firm — it is a calling. Firm founders Bill and Karen Coolman Amlong started militating for social justice while at university in the 1960s ― and they never stopped.

Our attorneys and supporting staff are as diverse and passionate as the clients we serve. As the first state coordinator of the Florida chapters of the National Organization for Women (NOW), and a national board member in her 20s, attorney Karen Coolman Amlong has been active in women's rights issues. She was the first woman from Broward County elected as a state legislator in 1974, and, in 1993, she obtained the first multimillion-dollar-plus sexual harassment judgment in Florida. Fasttrack magazine also named her one of South Florida's Most Successful Businesswomen in 2002.

Before becoming a lawyer, Bill Amlong was an investigative reporter for The Miami Herald, covering, among other things, national politics. The Miami Herald nominated him for three Pulitzer Prizes.

Karen provided me with all of the information needed to enable me to make sound decisions supported by her recommendations each step of the way. Her strategy and control of the process resulted in a fair settlement without having to go through a trial by jury.

At the end of the day, I trust Karen Amlong. Her knowledge and experience is evident. She kept me and my best interests in the forefront at all times and everything we discussed during our initial consult ended up being spot on, even the timeline..

Regardless of how hard the opposition pushed, the Amlong Firm dug in, and defended even harder. The Amlong Firm not only fought on behalf of myself, but also for my family in regards to the harm they suffered.

Fighting for justice is exhausting. When the other lawyer is playing dirty tricks, it's reassuring to know that The Amlong Firm has gone all the way to the Supreme Court to fight for justice for for a client – and they won.

My phone calls always were answered, my questions and concerns were dealt with promptly. Knowing I had competent, respected representation at this very stressful time was step one in moving on.

The decision to obtain Karen Amlong was the best choice I could have made dealing with my case. I highly recommend this attorney for anyone who is looking for a strong, aggressive attorney.
