Kathleen M. Sweeney - Employment Law - Civil Rights - Criminal Law
As an Assistant United States Attorney, Kathleen M. Sweeney was known for her aggressive investigations and prosecutions in the white collar crime area. After thirteen years of public service including experience as a sex crimes and child abuse prosecutor, Indiana trial lawyer Kathleen Sweeney opened her own law practice in Indianapolis in 1998.
She decided her calling was to defend the rights of the people, so Ms. Sweeney's practice is limited to representing:
She does not represent employers nor does she accept any contracts from the state or federal government.
She applies the investigative techniques and courtroom skills she learned as a prosecutor to the litigation of employment discrimination and civil rights claims, as well as in criminal defense. She is in the minority of attorneys who both litigate at the trial level as well as pursue their appeals.To find out how she can help resolve your legal problem, call Indianapolis attorney Kathleen Sweeney for a preliminary case evaluation.
In workplace rights cases, Kathleen Sweeney has successfully tried cases in both the federal trial and appellate courts, and has obtained settlements reaching six figures. She makes no claims regarding the outcome of your case, but she does pledge to work her best, and creatively for you. Most of the claims she handles are covered under statutes that make the employer liable for the employee's attorney's fees when the plaintiff's claim is successful.
That means there is a possibility that attorney's fees may be paid for by the employer. Ms. Sweeney believes that workplace discrimination must be aggressively pursued not only to protect you, but also to change how corporations conduct their business. Indianapolis employment discrimination attorney Kathleen Sweeney has also found that in many cases, it makes better sense for her client to seek a favorable severance package instead of pursuing a civil lawsuit or administrative claim against the employer. This can save you time, uncertainty, and the stress of working in miserable conditions.
Like workplace discrimination, Kathleen Sweeney has years of experience in criminal defense representing those accused of crimes in state and federal trial and appellate courts. Thoroughly familiar with law enforcement investigation methods, she believes that the key to a successful defense is conducting her own investigation. Whenever possible, she goes to work for her criminal clients as early as possible in the case so that she can persuade the government not to file charges or to reduce or eliminate as many charges as possible for trial.
Kathleen aggressively reviews the government's case for constitutional and factual weaknesses that can be exploited at trial. Ms Sweeney knows that defending a person's rights against the abundant resources of the government is a decision that requires a commitment of time and energy that you deserve.
