In this interview by Law360, Alreen Haeggquist shares how her abuse as a child was the catalyst to her determination to stand up to bullies and how she wanted to build a different kind of law firm, owned by women. Alreen shares how the team she has built has fought and won cases against some of the biggest bullies and institutions such as Donald Trump, Kaiser Permanente, the San Diego Sherriff’s Department, and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
Jenna Rangel, Partner at Haeggquist & Eck, shares the challenges of going up against prestigious institutions and how Haeggquist & Eck will investigate everything as much as possible, talk to as many people as possible, and gather as much evidence as possible to build their case.
Law360 also interviewed Haeggquist & Eck client Louise LaFoy about her case against the San Diego Sherriff’s Department. “Each day, I left that courtroom feeling a little bit more proud that I was standing up for myself and I had these women by my side,” LaFoy, told Law360. When that case became public, two more women came forward and asked Haeggquist & Eck to represent them.
While helping women stand up for themselves against gender discrimination and sexual harassment has become a large portion of the cases Haeggquist & Eck litigates, we stand up for all genders and non-binary folx.
