Stephan Zouras, LLP Names New Partner Haley R. Jenkins
Stephan Zouras, LLP is excited to announce the further strengthening of its plaintiff’s trial practice with the promotion of Haley R. Jenkins to Partner.
Haley has successfully represented thousands of employees in Illinois and across the country in litigation involving illegal pay practices and biometric privacy. Her practice is focused on vindicating the rights of employees deprived of minimum and overtime wages, and for the improper collection, storage and disclosure of workers’ sensitive biometric identifiers and information.
“Since Haley began working for our firm as a law clerk in 2015, she has proven her tireless, unwavering and relentless dedication to fighting for the rights of ordinary American workers.”, says Founding Partner Jim Zouras. “While many lawyers have a passion to fight against corporate injustice and abuse, few have the skills to back it up. Haley has both.”
Haley has authored numerous articles on the latest legal developments in her practice areas and is a frequent contributor to The Chicago Bar Association blog. She was also recently recognized as a 2021 Rising Star by Illinois Super Lawyers, a distinction given to no more than five percent of Illinois attorneys.
Just two weeks ago, Haley, in one of the first in-person federal jury trials for unpaid wages since the onset of the COVID pandemic, won a complete victory with a verdict in favor of a longtime employee of a Fortune 500 company who was deprived of overtime compensation.
