A significant portion of Mr. Littlejohn's practice consists of his representation of people who have been the victims of hiring or workplace discrimination. The cases that he has handled have been governed by such laws as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Mr. Littlejohn's employment law experience has also encompassed wrongful termination and other acts of prohibited retaliation, including the state's Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Act, and he has prepared and reviewed employment and severance agreements and has represented victims of workplace sexual harassment. He is also well-versed in disputes under the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Mr. Littlejohn's civil rights practice involves police brutality and other types of misconduct, fair housing discrimination act violations, and cases stemming from Title IX sex-based discrimination in education.

Honors/Awards:

  • Each year, BNC sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? »  Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. »  Voters may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. »  The top vote-getter in each category becomes a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame and is ineligible to win again. Voters should not select members of the Hall of Fame as those entries will be disqualified.This marks the 20th Legal Elite class. Each year, BNC has invited active members of the N.C. State Bar to vote for their most-esteemed peers. Attorneys can’t vote for themselves or for members of the Legal Elite Hall of Fame — previous top vote-getters in a particular specialty.
