Hero of the Day: Jill Zwagerman

On behalf of discrimination and wrongful termination client Jane Meyer, formerly the assistant athletic director at the University of Iowa, Des Moines lawyer Jill Zwagerman persuaded a jury drawn from a traditionally conservative jurisdiction to award $1.43 million in compensatory damages and to make findings that will support a $2 million post-trial additur. Verdicts like this don’t come along so often and this comes with a high-profile client. Ms. Zwagerman has every reason to be exceptionally proud today, notwithstanding the functional certainty of appeal. She’s an inspiration to employment lawyers nationwide.
