“I was discriminated against because of my disability. I could do my job just fine and I loved my job, but one day they had a meeting and told me I was being terminated because I couldn’t do the essential functions of my job. They didn’t offer any reasonable accommodations, either. I knew I could do my job but noone would believe me. Except Ashwin Madia. He took my case after several attorneys had already turned it down. Madia took on the second biggest law firm in Minnesota that was representing my employer and wouldn’t back down. He always listened to me and kept me involved in the case. Madia took lots of depositions of people who worked at my company, too. Eventually, Madia beat my employer at summary judgment and they ended up settling with me for a lot of money. Throughout the whole case, I really felt like Ashwin cared about me and my situation – I wasn’t just another case to him. I strongly recommend Madia Law.”

“During a wrongful raid of my home, a police officer jumped on my back and slammed my face on to the ground over and over again, even though I was handcuffed and had done nothing wrong. My kids were screaming and crying and the officer used racial slurs while he beat me. As a 115 pound female, I didn’t pose any threat to him at all – I just wanted to see the warrant. Anyway, when it was all over, I wanted to hold him accountable for what he did to me. I found Ashwin Madia and he fought for me. He filed a lawsuit and – after a year and a half – the City finally settled me with me and I felt that justice was served. Madia was a tough fighter for me and never gave up, even when the odds were long on my case. I recommend him to anyone.”

“I wanted to be a police officer my whole life. I finally got a job working for the City and I did great – for three years, I got nothing but positive reviews from everyone who worked with me. They kept promoting me and giving me more and more responsibility. After three years at the Police Department, I told my supervisor I was gay. After that day, everything changed for me – they demoted me, took away assignments, initiated investigations against me, and gave me the worst possible performance evaluation. It got so bad that I had to quit. I am so glad that I found Madia Law. Ashwin Madia took the Police Department to task for what they did – Madia Law did lots of depositions of my supervisors and peers and built a great record of evidence. After Madia Law got my case past summary judgment, the Police Department finally settled.
