Summary

My practice is limited to employment law in New York.

I represent mostly employees. Occasionally I defend a small employer.

Wage and hour claims including unpaid overtime are often easier to prove than employment discrimination. It's because employers or employees either kept documents or recorded time worked or they did not.

Employment discrimination cases require plausible theories of recovery. You read that correctly. Plausible as opposed to possible or conceivable.

What is the one thing none of us employment lawyers want to admit? 99% of cases or more settle. It's a fact. They either settle early, settle during mediation, settle before trial, or settle during trial. Why? Because neither side wants an appeal and settlement eliminates appeals. Choose your employment lawyer carefully. Expert litigators are great! But if it were my employment case at risk I would find an expert negotiator who understands people as much as the law.
