Phillips & Associates Attorneys Win Women in Law Award

Silvia Stanciu is an employment attorney at the law firm of Phillips & Associates. She was recently recognized with a 2018 Women in Law award from Lawyer Monthly for her outstanding legal representation of clients victimized by sexual harassment and discrimination based on race, gender, disability, and other protected categories.

Like other industries, the legal sector has been male-dominated, and gender inequality can make it particularly challenging for female lawyers to advance. Lawyer Monthly Women in Law awards celebrate high achievements by women in the legal profession around the world. They reward female legal experts who have overcome challenges and influenced the legal profession within their part of the world.

Ms. Stanciu is an employment litigator who worked as an associate for Bryan Arcé prior to joining Phillips & Associates. She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts from Hofstra University’s Honors College Program, and she subsequently obtained her Juris Doctorate at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University.

Ms. Stanciu has compassion for the worry and stress that you may experience if harassing or discriminatory conduct by a coworker or employer threatens your job. They represent plaintiffs in complex employment cases throughout all of the phases of litigation, from discovery to trials and appeals.

Whether you have been a victim of discrimination based on your race, sex, religion, national origin, color, or another protected characteristic, Ms. Stanciu has the experience and skill to represent you in either federal court or state court. There are important differences among federal, state, and local laws that prohibit discrimination. Among these differences include the statutes of limitations, the size that an employer must be to be covered by the law, whether there is a cap on damages, and the nuances of exactly which conduct is prohibited. They can navigate your claim through the legal system by using strategies designed to take full advantage of each law’s protections.
