My goal is to continue expanding our depth and breadth by increasing our teams in the Labor and Preventive Practices, Employee Benefits, Class Actions and Complex Litigation, and Wage and Hour practice groups, among others. I am excited to build on Jackson Lewis’ strong reputation in the region to take us to even greater heights.”

Ms. Sween represents employers in all aspects of employment law and litigation, including state and federal employment harassment and discrimination litigation, wrongful discharge litigation, FMLA, CFRA, ADA, and wage and hour litigation.

In addition to her litigation expertise, Ms. Sween regularly counsels employers on preventative employment policies and practices involving all areas of federal, state and local employment law, including recruiting and hiring, employee handbooks, leaves of absence, discipline and termination, workforce reductions, discrimination and harassment, reasonable accommodation and wage and hour.
