Our Commitment to Our Clients

Our top priority is protecting the civil rights and obtaining maximum available compensation for victims of unlawful discrimination, harassment or retaliation.

Approximately half of our clients are employed by public entities, and half are employed by private corporations.

We vigorously represent our client’s interests and excel in customer communication. We are committed to responding to client communications within 24 hours of receipt. Our firm is located in the Union County town of Westfield, NJ and our telephone number is (908) 301-9095.

Our Practice

Business Litigation

I assist my clients in assessing their risk of litigation, formulating strategies to insure that they are in compliance with labor laws and reduce their potential exposure to liability.

Employment Litigation

This includes litigating or settling around a thousand discrimination, harassment and retaliation cases under Administrative, State and Federal law.

Civil Litigation

As a diligent Civil Litigation Lawyer, for the past twenty-nine years, I have meticulously applied my experience and fought for my clients to win their cases.


Once I have determined which type of entity meets your needs, then I prepare the proper documents and file your business with the New Jersey Secretary of State.
