Experience. Strength. Wisdom. Success.

As a Seattle employment discrimination and harassment attorney, I have been working to obtain justice for my clients for over 37 years. During the last 20 years I have focused much of my work on cases representing victims of discrimination, retaliation or harassment in the workplace, wrongful withholding of wages and wrongful termination.

Here are some representative results that I have obtained for my clients over the past several years:

  • $776,000 judgment consisting of a plaintiff verdict of $365,000 plus a court application of 1.5 multiplier award for attorneys’ fees of $411,000 to a male Ethiopian Muslim case worker against Washington State Department of Social and Health Services;
  • $300,000 for several women subjected to sexual harassment and discriminatory treatment in the workplace;
  • $160,000 for a woman exposed to explicit sexual conversations at work and then fired when she complained;
  • $325,000 for 2 Hispanic women who were victims of sexual harassment at work and several coworkers who were retaliated against when they stood up for the women;
  • $150,000 for 2 young women sexually harassed by their supervisor at work;
  • Large, confidential settlement in a class action suit to recover unpaid wages.

Seasoned Trial Lawyer

My undergraduate degree is in economics from University of Washington, and my law degree is from University of California Berkeley. I am licensed to practice law in Oregon, as well as in state and federal courts in Washington. From my office in downtown Seattle, I handle cases throughout Washington and Oregon seeking justice for my clients. I tailor my litigation strategies and tactics to the facts and circumstances of each client and each individual case to meet my clients’ needs, reach their goals and achieve just resolutions of serious problems.

Champion of Clients’ Rights

Unlawful workplace discrimination can be because of age, race, sex, national origin, disability, and other factors recognized under state or federal law. If you or a family member has suffered workplace harassment or discrimination, please contact me. The initial consultation is free. If I take your case, I may charge no attorney’s fees until we win or settle your claim.

I recommend Mark Shepherd to anyone who needs legal assistance. I appreciated the way he and his staff related to me and handled my case. My case was quite draining emotionally and he and his staff (particularly Rosa Gallagher) were sensitive to that while still keeping things in perspective for me. Mark has the knowledge and tenacity necessary to win the case and the compassion and patience necessary to win the client.
