About Justin D. Cummins

Attorney Biography

I represent clients in a wide variety of labor & employment law, civil rights, and nonprofit law matters in Minnesota and across the Midwest.  My work includes litigating client cases involving:  contract claims, whistleblower or other retaliation claims, pay claims, harassment claims, False Claims Act or other fraud claims, leave claims, non-compete claims, fiduciary duty claims, mass layoff claims, unfair business practice claims, discrimination claims, benefits claims, constitutional claims.  In addition to providing responsive, principled, and effective representation to clients regarding their claims, I develop the law in the public interest as amicus curiae counsel in high-profile cases.
