The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington strives to seek a positive outcome in all of its cases and has met with numerous successes in multiple areas of the law. From Criminal cases to Employment administrative charges, and from Voting Rights to Wrongful Death cases our attorneys have battled to achieve positive outcomes for scores of clients. In the areas of Employment Discrimination, Housing Discrimination, Disability Discrimination, Education Discrimination, Police and Governmental Misconduct, Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice we have obtained success for clients totaling multi-millions of dollars. Success in legal cases can be measured in a number of ways. In some cases, forcing changes in the law or how things will be done in the future is a very positive outcome. Other types of cases are directly related to the people and impact of the issues being litigated within those cases. For instance, in criminal cases, a favorable result could include the dismissal of charges or some other outcome. Below are just some examples of positive monetary outcomes in a few of our Civil Rights, Employment, Discrimination, and Personal Injury cases.
