Tommy Warren is President of Settlement Services, Inc. (SSI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Epiq. Mr. Warren founded SSI in 1992 in order to administer his law offices’ class action cases.
With more than 35 years of experience representing classes in civil rights and employment discrimination cases, Mr. Warren has served as class counsel in some of the country’s largest fair employment class action cases. He has worked almost exclusively on federal class actions in which he has represented plaintiffs and their classes in discrimination and Fair Labor Standards Act cases. Mr. Warren has been appointed to act as Special Master in three class action discrimination cases before district courts in the Northern District of Georgia, the Northern District of California, and the District of Columbia.
SSI is experienced with the practical and legal aspects of class actions and has the insight to spot potential problems and provide efficient, cost-effective solutions. Mr. Warren’s extensive class action litigation experience has greatly assisted SSI’s ability to provide the best possible administration services to all parties involved in a settlement. SSI has handled hundreds of cases – many for the EEOC – involving hundreds of thousands of class members and has disbursed over one billion dollars in settlement funds.
Mr. Warren has lectured extensively on class action discrimination topics including at American Bar Association conferences for the Labor and Employment Law Section; at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.’s training conferences; at the Florida ACLU’s annual lawyers’ training conferences; and at symposiums sponsored by the Florida Commission on Human Relations, The Impact Fund, NELA, Johns Hopkins University, and the Florida State University College of Law.
