Rothman Gordon attorney Colleen Ramage Johnston has been elected as a Fellow of The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Election as fellow is the highest recognition by ones colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication, and excellence.
The eighteenth installation of Fellows will be held November 9, 2013 in New Orleans, LA, coincident with the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference. With the current installation, the College is represented by almost twelve hundred members in forty-five states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and eight provinces from Canada.
The College was the vision of a number of Fellows. The idea was to further establish this profession in all its aspects as one uniquely important to the world of labor and employment law, individual rights, collective bargaining, and dispute resolution. The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Sections of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It operates as a free standing organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
Ms. Ramage Johnston is a graduate of Duquesne University School of Law. She primarily represents plaintiffs in litigation of employment matters involving age, gender, disability, and retaliation discrimination, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Equal Pay Act, and related Constitutional claims.
