Riverside's team of attorneys, which includes a decorated U.S. Marine combat veteran and elite Army Ranger veteran, is among the most respected and accomplished in the nation when it comes to litigating USERRA claims on behalf of servicemen and women.
Class actions provide a mechanism for a group of similarly situated individuals to come together and pursue claims that would otherwise not be prosecuted due to economic considerations. Litigating class actions requires a thorough understanding of the complex procedural rules surrounding class certification, as well as the robust body of law governing the class settlement negotiation process.

These matters include claims of hostile work environment, retaliation, discrimination, and, among other things, violations of federal and state laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD).
