Joel Cohen proudly represents employees who have been wronged by employers. As one who has been discriminated against by previous entities prior to practicing law, Mr. Cohen can relate well to those who have been unjustly treated in the workplace. The primary reason Mr. Cohen considered practicing law after his careers in journalism, political advocacy, and college teaching, was due to certain experiences he went through when attempting to secure employment with particular government, non-profit, and for profit agencies/firms. He promises, upon taking a case, to zealously represent his client as if he, Mr. Cohen, was discriminated against by the same company. Mr. Cohen represents clients whose cases are best suited for Federal Court, and for those whose cases are best equipped to be filed in Arizona, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, S. Dakota, Tennessee, or Texas state court.
Among issues that Mr. Cohen will be able to analyze and concern him include pregnancy and gender pay discrimination, sexual harassment, disability discrimination, race discrimination, age discrimination, discrimination based on national origin, religion, and other grounds, constructive discharge, retaliation, the Texas Whistleblower Act, discrimination claims under Texas Labor Code Chapter 451, other state claims (e.g. Arizona, Arkansas, Illinois, Oklahoma, Michigan, Minnesota, Tennessee, etc...), and Sec. 1981 (race). A huge majority of Attorney Cohen's caseload tend to be sexual harassment, constructive discharge, and retaliation cases.
