John M. Clifford has represented plaintiffs and defendants in litigation for more than thirty years. He has tried more than 125 cases to jury verdicts and was named by "Washingtonian" magazine as one of the top practitioners in employment law. In one landmark case, besides obtaining a substantial verdict for a college professor, the appellate decision established the right of employees to sue for sexual harassment under D.C. law. In addition to numerous cases representing employees, Mr. Clifford has provided employment defense services to diverse clients such as the Office of the Architect of the U.S. Capitol, the Washington Hospital Center and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
Mr. Clifford's litigation practice chiefly focuses on employment issues, such as discrimination, harassment and whistleblower rights, but includes a broad range of cases, including malpractice, fraud, and defamation. Two recent trials resulted in a jury verdict of $8 million for medical malpractice and $185 million for securities fraud.
Mr. Clifford also has extensive experience providing training seminars to employers, in regulated industries, on maintaining a work environment free from harassment, intimidation, retaliation and discrimination.
Mr. Clifford recently served as Co-Chairman of the D.C. Bar's Litigation Section and has lectured in numerous programs of continuing legal education. He is admitted in the District of Columbia and Maryland, and is a member of the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court.
