Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You can file in the location where either defendant is located. Since the primary defendant is your employer in Montgomery, that is generally the court where you would file the suit against the employer AND their agent.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

Thank you. Would you know if you, or another Attorney would be willing to represent me? I am willing to pay for the right Attorney?

Thank you for your reply.

There are so many attorneys in the greater Philadelphia area there is no way we could recommend any, but you need to consider using the same site used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.superlawyers.com and you are looking for a employment law or general civil litigation attorney.
