SHAUN C. SOUTHWORTH is the founding attorney of Southworth PC. As an employment attorney, his practice focuses on representing employees and former employees in all areas of employment law. He carefully selects his clients and aggressively and doggedly represents them. When justice requires, he enjoys taking on any employer, from large Fortune 500 companies, to large governmental agencies. For his clients, he has not only obtained dispositive results, but also substantial five-figure settlements, six-figure settlements, settlements that have changed the way the workplace is structured, and settlements that have allowed his clients to continue working under their terms. Mr. Southworth is a graduate of the Duke University School of Law, where at graduation he received the “Faculty Award for Outstanding Achievement in Labor and Employment Law,” an award not given every year. He was also named the Neill James Blue Scholar. After Duke, Mr. Southworth was a labor and employment associate at an “AmLaw 100″ law firm, a distinction reserved for America’s largest law firms. As an employment attorney, he represented employers from small business to Fortune 500 companies. Before founding Southworth PC, Mr. Southworth was also a labor and employment attorney at another national law firm, and the senior attorney at one of America’s premier employment and federal practice boutiques, where he represented employees and former employees against entities ranging from Fortune 500 companies, to large governmental agencies. He also supervised other employment attorneys and designed the litigation strategies for numerous employment cases. As an employment attorney, Mr. Southworth has represented clients in almost all areas of employment law, including sexual harassment and discrimination claims, racial harassment and discrimination claims, age harassment and discrimination claims, disability harassment and discrimination claims, medical leave interference and retaliation claims, wage and hour individual and class actions, and breach of employment agreement and fraud claims, among others. He has litigated claims before federal and state courts, before the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, before arbitration panels, before the EEOC’s administrative judges in hearings and otherwise, before the Merit Systems Protection Board, and before the United States Office of Personnel Management. He has litigated claims as an employment attorney against large companies, and numerous federal government agencies, including the United States Department of Labor, the United States Postal Service, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the United States Department of Defense, and the United States Department of Justice. He has represented clients residing in over ten different states nationwide, and uses pro hac and co-counsel relationships as appropriate.

Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
My professional client was facing harassment, but was a great performer. She wanted to stay in her job, but in a different city. We successfully reached a settlement where the employer created a new position for the client in another city, and hired her an assistant too.

How did you build a successful practice?
What makes a successful practice depends on how you define success. Success to me is helping people restore justice when they have been treated poorly in the workplace. To do that, I want a practice that focuses on closely working with clients and allows me to work hard, turning over every stone. This, in turn, builds word of mouth referrals.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
There are many good employment lawyers. Personally, I believe clients should look for a good attorney who is interested in their case, and who would work well with them.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
The free phone consultation is limited to gathering facts to determine if the client has a case that we could help them with.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Before the interview, our receptionists gather the potential client’s contact information, the name of the employer at issue, the prospective client’s position, and their salary. As a result, the free phone consultation can focus on the facts.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is taking cases I believe in, and obtaining results for my clients.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I love Duke Basketball, playing poker, and traveling.

Are you involved in your community?
I am constantly meeting new people, and our firm tries to devote 10% of our time to pro bono projects.
