New York City and New Jersey Employment Lawyer

With over 25 years' experience as a practicing employment lawyer, I represent and advise employees and employers in all aspects of the work relationship, including litigation in the federal and state courts as well as in arbitrations and before government agencies.

Because I represent employees and employers alike, I provide special value to my clients based on a first-hand, real-world understanding of both sides of the employment relationship. Indeed, I bring a unique background as a trial lawyer for the federal National Labor Relations Board, as an in-house corporate counsel and as an outside counsel on behalf of Fortune 500 corporations. See bio here. This broad experience in representing both employees and employers distinguishes me from many other attorneys who represent one side or the other -- not both. I meet my clients where they are, irrespective of whether they’re an employee who feels he/she has been treated unfairly by his/her employer or an employer who feels its employee’s dissatisfaction is unfounded.

Employees. We represent executive, managerial, professional, technical, and administrative employees and all other workers. This includes reviewing, drafting and negotiating employment contracts, severance agreements and non-compete agreements and litigating claims for wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, whistle-blowing, sexual harassment and unpaid wages and overtime. When these issues arise the best course of action is to consult with an employment lawyer to obtain the guidance and representation you need. We promise straightforward answers and thorough personal attention to everything we handle. Click here to see a detailed list of areas we can be of help to you.

Employers. Every day employers make decisions concerning employees that are governed by complex federal and state laws and regulations. These decisions, often well-intentioned but mishandled, may lead to time-consuming employee relations issues and ultimately costly lawsuits. Prevention is the key. We advise employers on how to make day-to-day decisions that will minimize the likelihood of suffering backlash from employees or lead to legal claims and government investigations. In addition to consulting on the topics below, we review and prepare employment policies and provide training to management and HR professionals. We also conduct internal investigations in response to employee complaints or EEO claims. Furthermore, we have the expertise to advise and represent management on how to avoid getting embroiled in union organizing campaigns, NLRB matters and union arbitrations, and if such matters do occur, we can effectively assist in defending employers as well as help administer collective bargaining agreements.

Thousands of Piece Rate Workers in California’s Salon Industry Are Likely Owed Unpaid Wages

Salon owners in California who pay employees on commission are subject to liability for failing to pay all wages due. Under California law, “commissions” are a form of wages applicable only to an employee who sells a product or service, not to an employee who makes a product or provides a service to the employer’s customers
