About Me:

Mr. Schofield began his practice in 1993 after graduating from the University of Miami Law School in Miami, Florida. For the first 5 years of practice he worked under the tutelage and guidance of one of the preeminent civil rights attorneys in Florida. Those early years addressed a broad spectrum of civil rights claims from police misconduct, employment discrimination, housing discrimination, disability rights and educational rights.

Mr. Schofield has been the principal of his own firm since 1999. In his practice he has successfully prosecuted sexual harassment claims against Fortune 500 and smaller companies in both federal and state courts. One notable suit was brought against a Massachusetts based company which resulted in over One Million Dollars in liability. The verdict was appealed in the Eleventh Circuit and successfully defended by Mr. Schofield.

Mr. Schofield has also brought suits against municipalities and other governmental entities throughout Florida. In one such suit he represented a police officer against the Delray Beach Police Department, one of five officers which brought race discrimination claims, that also resulted in over One Million Dollars in liability. Other successful prosecutions have been brought against the Jupiter Police Department, West Palm Beach Police Department, City of Boynton Beach, City of Boca Raton, City of Riviera Beach and the Sheriffs of Palm Beach, Broward, St. Lucie and Martin Counties.

Mr. Schofield has also successfully prosecuted disability discrimination claims against the federal government, local governments and private and other public entities. These claims have been prosecuted in federal court, state court and through the federal claims process of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The practice, while located in West Palm Beach, Florida, has handled cases as far south as Key West, far north as Jacksonville and throughout the east and west coasts of Florida. No claim is too large or too small. He is often retained to consult on or litigate matters involving employment contracts, non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, collective bargaining agreements.

The handling of administrative claims is another area of practice. Mr. Schofield handles the processing of Charges of Discrimination through the EEOC, FCHR, the various local FEPA agencies and appeals before the Agency for Workforce Innovation.
