Jon Little is at the forefront of protecting athletes. His lawsuit against USA Swimming has led to the United States Olympic Committee taking the unprecedented step of adopting new policies aimed at curbing and eliminating the sexual molestation of young athletes. Attorney Jon Little has experience in lawsuits on a diverse range of athletic topics including competition eligibility and competition and training visas (P1, O1, and B1) for entry into the United States. Furthermore, Jon Little has represented clients in multi-million dollar actions against National Governing Bodies for harm committed by agents of the NGB against athletes. Little has published and done extensive research on the intersection of gender, sports, and the law in “Running Against the Wind: Sex Discrimination in High School Girls Cross Country.”
Where we come in
Saeed and Little, LLP is a law firm founded by athletes; we understand how physically and emotionally invested an athlete becomes in their athletic pursuits. Saeed and Little brought the first case against the United States Olympic Committee and their associated entities in 2008 and we were the original source to the Indianapolis Star for the Out of Balance investigation which ultimately exposed the sexual abuse of Larry Nassar and over a hundred other coaches. Saeed and Little has tried Olympic Sport cases to jury, taken cases other cases to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and resolved more than 20 other Olympic cases by settlement. Don’t fall for law firms that represent dozens of athletes but have no background as high level athletes or the legal experiences that can only be earned by over a decade of litigation- no other firm has the knowledge of the facts and history regarding USOC sexual abuse.
Big Ten Champion, record holder 400 IM, first USA Swimming Lawsuit Plaintiff
“When I found out I was violated by my swim coach, I wanted an attorney who truly understood high level athletics. With Jon’s background as an athlete, I knew he was someone I could trust to handle my case. It’s amazing what we have been able to accomplish over the last three years.”
“I had dealt with many attorneys, but Ali has been the most efficient and dedicated attorney by far. His dedication got great results in the final outcome on my lawsuit with Bank of America.”
President, Total Resource Staffing
“I was sued by the franchisor of my staffing business with a promise of closing me down and taking over my business. Jon Little prevailed in the trial, and I was able to continue operating as an independent staffing firm. Jon worked with me on a very flexible payment plan for his fees and was very accessible to answer any questions or concerns about my business. I am very grateful, and appreciate everything Jon Little has done for me and my business. I would highly recommend Jon Little for any and all legal needs you may encounter.”
“If you need help from an attorney, I recommend calling Ali’s office because he will listen before he starts talking about money if any money is needed. He put in much work to bring my mortgage owners to court and forced them to correct my account. Therefore, get the best and forget the rest!”
