The Amlong Firm The Amlong Firm

Public Employee Defense

Public employees — blue collar workers, police chiefs, clerk-typists, correctional officers, librarians, department heads — have rights as well as responsibilities. Allegations of abuse or professional misconduct can quickly spiral out of control. Often, public employees do not have a chance to defend themselves before the community learns of the allegations and assumes their guilt. Ultimately, false allegations can destroy public servants' credibility and careers.

At The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, we are trial lawyers. We aggressively protect public employees' rights when they are accused of misconduct. Whether you are a teacher, a police officer, a deputy sheriff or a city worker, we are ready to defend you.

We Will Protect Your Rights

At other times, a public employee may be the accuser, as opposed to the one being accused, and may face retribution in violation of Florida's public sector whistleblower statute or other federal acts. Also, public employees are just as likely to be subjected to other forms of discrimination as those in the private sector. We know your rights and how to assert them.

Contact us by email or call 954-519-2235 or 877-367-4440 to schedule a no-hassle consultation.

Our law firm's founders, Bill Amlong and Karen Coolman Amlong, have a combined seven decades of experience representing clients and trying cases. Between them, they have tried more than 100 cases in Florida and federal courts.

Defending Public Workers In Cases Of All Kinds

We use an aggressive, hands-on approach to defending public employees facing serious, career-threatening allegations such as:

  • Ethics violations

  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Sexual misconduct charges
  • Allegations of alcohol or drug abuse
  • Disciplinary action based on criminal charges
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Race, gender and age discrimination

We carefully investigate the allegations against clients and work meticulously to develop persuasive legal arguments to defend public employees' rights before civil service boards, in administrative hearings and in litigation. Attorney Bill Amlong is a former investigative reporter for The Miami Herald with extensive experience obtaining evidence from public records, email trails, instant messaging logs and other sources.

As a public employee, your professional reputation is critical to your career. We are committed to protecting your years of service to the community. Whether you are facing false or exaggerated grievances from the public, an internal investigation or criminal charges, we are prepared to defend your career, reputation and livelihood.

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.
