Dan was the only lawyer who seemed to have time for me and knew that I had a case. He was personable, helpful, and most importantly he knew how to win without setting foot in a court room.

I can't say enough about my experience with Dan Atkerson for helping me with my discrimination case. I found him not only very responsive but also very knowledgeable about how to deal with my employer. Because of the depth of his experience, he was much more informed and far better equipped to navigate my case over other attorneys I had interviewed...and the settlement proved that. Thank you Dan for helping not only me but also my family!

Some common examples of harassment include:
