LGBTQ+ Rights

BHPK features its own specialized LGBTQ+ Rights (anti-discrimination, anti-bullying, anti-retaliation, and anti-harassment) practice, led by partner Michael Stefanilo, Jr., who was named one of the Best LBGTQ+ Lawyers in the country by the National LGBTQ Bar Association. 

Michael is a leading voice in the Commonwealth on LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender, and queer) rights in the workplace, education, and in public accommodations, and he and the BHPK team have successfully represented a number of survivors of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. 

We are also committed to the advancement of the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender, and queer) community through providing training and investigations into workplace situations on behalf of both private companies and public employers. 

If you are a victim of sexual harassment, discrimination, or retaliation in the workplace, schools, or in public accomodations, we have the particularized experience and understanding of the unique challenges facing the LGBTQ+ community to assist you in fully vindicating your rights under the law.
