Jesse C. Rose

Jesse Rose is Of Counsel to Phillips & Associates and a partner at The Rose Law Group, PLLC. An experienced New York employment discrimination lawyer, he has worked with principal attorney William Phillips and the firm since 2011, litigating hundreds of matters throughout New York City and the surrounding areas. Together, Mr. Rose and Mr. Phillips work tirelessly to protect their clients' rights and hold New York employers accountable when they violate employment laws.

Throughout his career, Mr. Rose has practiced almost exclusively in the employment law arena. He is well versed in both state and federal employment standards, dedicating a significant portion of his practice to vindicating the rights of employees within New York City metro area. He has won dozens of federal motions, appeared on hundreds of federal cases, and successfully obtained favorable decisions in both the New York State and federal courts. These decisions range from individual employee contract disputes to large-scale, nationally certified collective actions. His cases have been cited as authority in employment actions throughout the United States.

Mr. Rose believes in clear, compassionate communication with his clients, and keeps them well informed of case developments and strategies. He is sharp, tenacious, and aggressive when asserting his clients’ rights in relation to both federal and state employment laws. Because of his passion and results-oriented philosophy, his clients are both satisfied and enthusiastic about his representation.

Mr. Rose has dedicated his career to righting injustices in the workplace, but has also been interested in achieving justice in other critical areas. As a student at Hofstra University School of Law, where he was a member of the Labor and Employment Journal, he participated in the Political Asylum clinic, representing individuals who sought refuge in the United States while fleeing dangerous circumstances in their countries of origin. While at Hofstra, Mr. Rose was also an active member of the student body, co-founding and serving as president of the Hofstra Democratic Association. He participated in the moot court association, and was communications coordinator for the school's Amnesty International Chapter. He also completed a practicum in the asylum clinic, and won an intramural championship in flag football. He attended a class with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and met with Justice Samuel Alito in a roundtable discussion just after his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mr. Rose was born in New York, but raised in North Carolina. In 2005, he graduated from Wake Forest University where he received his B.A. in Economics. He minored in Computer Science and studied higher-level mathematics.

Employment law can be a complex area with many procedural requirements and substantive nuances. To stay ahead of the curve, employment litigators must be diligent, patient, and aware of changes as they occur in relation to both case law and statutes. Workers’ rights can be threatened by the lobbying of large corporate employers with significant resources. In order to better serve his clients, Mr. Rose stays informed of all current trends and changes in employment law, and adjusts his case strategies accordingly. His passion for ensuring a fair workplace for all makes him a valuable asset to his clients, and to Phillips & Associates.

Hands down the best law firm for labor disputes in NYC. Being in the restaurant industry for more than 30 years I can say that this law firm is the number one choice for workers in the restaurant business that need to sue their company for wrongful termination. A special compliment to my lawyer Brittany Stevens. An amazing person and well prepared experienced lawyer. She was professional and empathetic to my case and worked in a time appropriate manner. She never miss a phone call at any hour of the day.The other associates that assisted Brittany were Yusha Hiraman, Eugenio Benvenuto and Katerina Housos. They were all professional and answered any questions or concerns that I had. Brittany and her team helped me with what I needed, when I needed it. I want to thank them all (especially Brittany), for a job well done. Massimo

Jesse Weinstein handled my discrimination case. He was extremely patient and understanding throughout the process and remained professional and consistent even when I could not. I really felt like he had my back and I didn't have to worry. His expertise, combined with the experience of the Firm, resulted in the best possible outcome of my case. Although I wouldn't wish what I went through on anyone, things do and always will happen and I would highly recommend Jesse and this Firm to anyone facing discrimination or other workplace issues.
