Federal Court & EEOC/ IDHR Proceedings

I have many years experience litigating employment discrimination/ retaliation claims in federal court as well as handling EEOC/ IDHR matters.

It is important that you have an attorney who understands the laws, understands how to evaluate the strength of your claims, and be organized and thorough and know how to properly address and handle your litigation, as well as be someone who when you have a question you can call and actually speak with rather than being relegated to speaking with an associate attorney, a paralegal, or a secretary.

It is also important that your attorney have a strong and committed interest in handling employment matters on behalf of employees - which I do.

I take direct responsibility for my cases and can be reached simply by dialing my phone number.

Call me to briefly discuss if it makes sense for you to come in for an appointment to my Chicago loop office to further discuss your employment situation.

Client Reviews
"I found David Porter's representation of me to be both professional and compassionate. He did a solid job of explaining my legal options and provided me with real world examples of how labor/employment law works. His support and advocacy helped me to get through a very difficult time in my professional life. I would without hesitation highly recommend him to a friend in need of a seasoned practitioner." Jack
"I can't thank you enough for dealing with the bureaucracy of the Indiana and Illinois unemployment offices. Their response to my individual communications seemed to be the default answer of "No". With your help and persistence you were able to cut through the red tape and win my Trade Adjustment Assistance, allowing me to pursue my Master's of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. It is a good feeling to know I can call on such a great resource in trying times." Marc
"After finding myself in a terrible position with a former employer to whom my fate was at their mercy, David Porter stepped in and negotiated a settlement plan that not only kept me out of court, but also prevented any negative references or information being leaked out to possibly hinder my future growth as a professional."
