There is also a lot of defamation, fraud, etc. I have been denied by one whistle blower atty and one employment/civil/constitutional rights atty. What can I do to increase my chances? Unfortunately, it is contingency, but there were aware of that initially. The company even made the statement that the only reason they are going to court is because they do not want to lose the company. Would speaking to a Federal Agency/cies help prior to contacting an attorney? I have been on the whistleblower website and initiated the referral process. Some atty could make a lot of money on this case. Any suggestions or advice? I'm losing hope since I've been turned down twice.
You are at the right site but the wrong part. At the top and at the bottom of the page there is a section called "Find a Lawyer". Enter your city and employment law, read about the lawyers and contract any that are of interest to you for an interview.
By the way, when a lawyer hears "constitutional rights" in a civil law context it does not make a positive impression on many.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.
Recommend you meet with an attorney in your area and discuss ALL the facts and details. As a practical matter, two attorney's have passed on your case, that is at least anecdotal evidence that you do NOT have the kind of case you think you do. Its very common for individual who have been wronged to read the law and assess their situation in terms of what they read. Unfortunately it takes years to read the law and understand how the legal process works within the confines of the law. When experienced lawyers look at the same set of facts, they are looking at what is possible given the circumstances. Much will turn on what those lawyers who passed on your case told you. Recommend you keep consulting with a few more attorney to ensure you have second, third, fourth opinions.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE. FOR EDUCATION AND INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights.

Sexual Harassment Attorney
I would highly recommend that you seek legal counsel with an attorney who practices employment law and sexual harassment law. If you go to the Avvo website home page there is a tab "Find A Lawyer" which will help you find a lawyer in your locale. Good luck, my friend.

This is a general response to a question for basic information and is not legal advice.
