My employer wrongful terminated me. So I had to hire an attorney that handles employee issues. So in the end we went to a mediation. I ended up paying him 22,000.00

Legal fees are generally not deductible. The two exceptions are for legal fees incurred to determine or collect any tax liability, and legal fees expended to secure taxable income.
You can find detailed info about that in
IRS Pub. 529, Miscellaneous Deductions,
