A former employee at the plaintiffs firm Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano has sued the firm and three of its lawyers, alleging they engaged in or tolerated sexual misconduct from union officials and other client referral sources and then fired her for speaking out.

Evelyn Quiles, who said she was hired as an outreach coordinator in 2013, claims she was “sexually exploited, harassed, assaulted, degraded, and humiliated” for years at numerous lunches and networking events that she was forced to attend. Her lawsuit didn’t name most of the alleged wrongdoers, but she asserts that attorney Jordan Ziegler touched her inappropriately and made lewd sexual comments, comparing her at one time to a prostitute.
