Employment law is a complex and continuously changing area of law that requires a significant amount of time to master. For the past ten years, I have devoted a significant amount of time developing a high level of proficiency of this field of law. I have litigated discrimination, harassment and retaliation cases under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the New Jersey Conscientious Protection Act. I have also brought employment actions pursuant to violations of employee handbooks and company policies. I have negotiated more money and/or greater benefits for over five hundred cases involving negotiations of severance packages. I have successfully litigated or settled employment actions against Fortune Five Hundred companies, the State of New Jersey, and business large and small. I have also successfully defended a handful of small businesses in these types of cases.
I am a board member of the New Jersey branch of the National Employment Lawyers Association. This is a vital organization which focuses on the prosecution of employee claims in the area of employment law. I communicate with members of NELA on a regular basis in the preparation and litigation of employment matters.
A few of the most common types of employment or labor law matters that I handle on a regular basis are:
- Wrongful Termination
- Sexual Harassment
- Whistleblower Retaliation
- Severance/Separation Package Negotiations
- Unlawful Terminations Due to Pregnancy
- Age, Race, Disability and Gender Discrimination
- Qui Tam
- Civil Rights
- Administrative Law
- Public Employee Disciplinary Actions
- Emotional Distress
- Defamation Slander/Libel
- Employment Contract Negotiations
On select employment cases, I offer “Contingency” fees to my clients. This means that you pay nothing to I unless we recover money for you. I also offer hybrid retainer options where there is a sharing of risks and benefits in prosecuting a lawsuit between my clients and myself.
