Phillips & Associates recently appeared on the cover of the magazine Lawyer Monthly. This is a monthly legal publication that features legal news from around the world. The publication creates, follows, and reports legal news, and it provides insightful commentary on the contemporary legal landscape. The magazine profiled three highly experienced New York City employment lawyers, William K. Phillips, Marjorie Mesidor, and Bryan Arce, for the cover story. All three are considered among the best of the best when it comes to employment discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuits.
Mr. Phillips is the founder of Phillips & Associates. He was chosen in both 2017 and 2018 by the American Institute of Legal Counsel to be among the 10 Best Labor and Employment Attorneys in New York. The American Society of Legal Advocates named him a Top 100 Labor & Employment Lawyer in New York. Corporate International named him Employment Discrimination Attorney of the Year in New York for 2018. He was also recently chosen as a member of Lawyers of Distinction in Employment and Labor Law.
Bryan Arce is also a partner at Phillips & Associates. He has been recognized as a Super Lawyer many times, and AVVO has listed him as a Top Discrimination Attorney. He is a member of the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is limited to attorneys who have either settled or won million- and multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements. Three Best Rated named him one of the Top Three Best Rated Employment Attorneys in Newark, New Jersey.
Marjorie Mesidor is also a partner at Phillips & Associates. She recently received a Woman in Law award from Lawyer Monthly, the latest of many honors and awards. She represented the plaintiff in the landmark case of Johnson v. STRIVE, in which she sought and received a unanimous jury award settling the issue of whether people of the same race can discriminate against one another.
In addition to these partners' accomplishments and honors, Phillips & Associates also has 10 other attorneys who have achieved Super Lawyer status and three other attorneys who are members of the prestigious Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Phillips & Associates educates its attorneys and staffs on an ongoing basis. The landscape of employment discrimination is ever-changing, and our firm constantly attends seminars and lectures to keep up with and fully understand this area of law.
In addition to having profound knowledge of the law, the firm has attorneys who understand the emotional aspects of the employment litigation that they handle. They understand that your job may be the second-most important thing in your life next to your family, and you may spend more time at work with coworkers or supervisors than you do at home. A job can have a tremendous impact on your self-image, and the loss of a job after discrimination or harassment can be devastating. This type of experience can cause loss of confidence, depression, anxiety, and more. Our firm works hard to achieve a financial settlement that allows a client to achieve closure and get an opportunity to start another chapter in their life.
Phillips & Associates provides clients with the confidence that their cases will be handled appropriately. It personalizes legal representation for each client, understanding that each client deserves quality legal representation and service. Unlike some other firms, Phillips & Associates only represents employees, and it focuses primarily on employment discrimination and sexual harassment. It does not need to practice in other areas of law or represent corporations. Attorneys at Phillips & Associates have obtained more than $110 million in settlements and verdicts for workers who have faced on-the-job discrimination in the past seven years.
Phillips & Associates has 18 employment discrimination attorneys, so when you hire our firm, you hire a legal team to fight for your rights. If you are concerned about employment discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in a New York City workplace, you should consult us. You can contact Phillips & Associates at (866) 229-9441 or through our website.
