By submitting this lawyer request, I confirm I have read and agree to the Consent to Receive Messages, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy
I have focused on Employment Law for 20 years. Since 2011 my practice is exclusively across New York State. It is limited to Employment Law.

As a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association since 1997, although not continuously, I represent mostly employees. I do list some small employers, representative clients, who I have helped for years.

Typical cases include:

1) Race Discrimination or Retaliation
2) Gender or Sex Discrimination or Retaliation
3) Disability or Perceived Disability Discrimination or Retaliation
4) Hostile Workplaces from which Employees sometimes are forced to leave (these cases are rare and resignation is highly unusual, rarely recommended)
5) Noncompetition and Severance Agreement reviews
6) Wage and Hour Law Cases. These often include salaried employees who have been misclassified as exempt from overtime pay. Again, these are rare cases and very fact specific.

I am admitted to all of New York's federal trial courts.

2014 - Southern District of New York
2015 - Eastern District of New York
2020 - Northern District of New York
2020 - Western District of New York

Representing clients from long distances is not new to me. I have done so for almost a few decades. I began doing so in New York almost five years ago after I won a telephone hearing representing a client I had never met in-person. That's not unusual. What was unusual about that case is that I was able to rehabilitate my client's perjured testimony without leading him. The transcript was reviewed and authorities found that I had actually done so without giving my client the answer. It made me realize that person-to-person meetings were unnecessary and I have continued that since that phone hearing.

Employment Discrimination matters are always about the facts. And every potential client and I speak on the phone to gauge whether we might be good for one another. Not every lawyer is the right lawyer for a potential client and vice versa. I suggest calling many lawyers.
