Brooklyn was home to the Canarsie Indians before Dutch colonists took it over in the 1620s. The Dutch named the area “Breukelen,” meaning broken land. Known for the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, and the Dodgers, Brooklyn occupies a special place in the American imagination. With over 2.5 million residents, it remains the largest borough in New York and the second most densely populated county in the United States. Brooklyn continues to preserve its heritage as the quintessential city of immigrants. One out of every seven Americans can trace their family roots to this borough, which is home to some of the most distinct ethnic enclaves. Brooklyn’s streets still ring with the accents of Creole, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean. Immigrants continue to settle in this borough and make it their home. Despite its name, Brooklyn has become an international symbol for unity among people from all over the world. Diverse neighborhoods like Dumbo, Flatbush, and Redhook are trailblazers on the road to gender, racial, and ethnic equality.


Workplace discrimination refers to a wide range of conduct that results in the unfair treatment of workers based on protected characteristics. Qualities such as race, religion, and national origin cannot form the basis of adverse employment decisions. They are innate characteristics that are “protected” under the Constitution. Discrimination can also lead to a hostile work environment. New York State and federal law likewise prohibit discriminatory behavior based on a person’s gender, including sexual harassment, pregnancy and sexual orientation discrimination. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the government body responsible for enforcing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and other antidiscrimination laws. Employees who wish to bring a discrimination claim against their employer must first file a claim with the EEOC. Our experienced EEOC Representation/Mediation attorneys can help you pursue your claim through mediation, settlement, and trial, as well as on appeal. We handle discrimination in Brooklyn and the New York City area. Don’t be a victim of workplace discrimination. Our discrimination attorneys are here to help.

Client Reviews
I was a client with this law firm. I can't stress enough how awesome and professional the people are here. Silvia & Erica made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I never had to guess anything. Anytime I call, emailed, or even texted. They were always there. If not they would get back to me as soon as possible. My case was not an easy situation for me but I tell you these guys made it seem like it was. I'm so glad that I use Phillip & Phillip. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. I am so grateful to have met such awesome, honest, and caring people. Thank you again. Djuana
I highly recommend Parisis (Gerry) Fillippatos with Phillips & Associates to represent you for employment related matters.

He is personable and makes you feel comfortable in the maze of legal jargon. Finally, his confidence, perseverance and masterful negotiation skills deliver the win. Anonymous
