Phillips & Associates

At the law firm of Phillips & Phillips, you will work with a group of experienced legal professionals who have established a record of success representing clients in New York City and the Tri-State region. The attorneys at Phillips & Phillips have been recognized as outstanding advocates in the field of workplace law. We focus on all aspects of employment discrimination law and therefore are familiar with the detailed and often-complex federal, state, and municipal laws surrounding this area of law. Our lawyers have successfully handled cases in many areas of workplace law, including: employment discrimination on the basis of race, gender, national origin, religion, caregiving responsibilities, age, disability and sexual orientation; sexual harassment; failure to pay overtime wages; employer retaliation for complaints of discrimination or harassment; severance agreements; violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); and EEOC representation and mediation.

Our lawyers understand that being a victim of workplace discrimination or sexual harassment can cause tremendous stress, as well as negatively affect your work performance and personal life. These experiences can often undermine your sense of dignity and well-being. We have found that going through the process of filing a claim can help restore an individual’s sense of control over his or her life. At Phillips & Phillips, you can count on our attorneys to serve as trusted advisors and vigorous advocates for your case. Whether we are representing you in the settlement process or advocating for you in court, you can rest assured that we have your best interests in mind and will work diligently to help you achieve both justice and closure. Our goal is to help you successfully navigate the complex legal and professional issues surrounding workplace discrimination, and to achieve the best outcome possible for you.

We at Phillips & Phillips pride ourselves on clear and open communication with all of our clients from the first consultation to the end of the representation. Our initial consultations are always free, and we handle cases on a contingency fee basis – meaning you pay absolutely no attorney’s fees unless we prevail in settlement or trial. If you believe you have been the victim of discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace, you may be entitled to monetary damages for lost wages, emotional distress and more. However, there is a short statute of limitations to bring workplace-related claims, so it is important to contact a workplace discrimination lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your legal claim.

★★★★★
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, Kevin Guaranda 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.

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 and his team were professional, attentive to every detail and brilliant at identifying the legal grounds to win the case. Parisis's communication and delivery were highly articulate and precise. 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
