Recently consulted with this firm and found them to be very professional, from receptionist to assigned lawyer Gregory W. Kirschenbaum. It was obvious from day 1 that Gregory was very professional and knowledgeable in his practice and he listened very attentively without judging. He asked very specific questions which showed his quick grasp of the situation at hand and therefore brought it into perspective very quickly. He offered advice accordingly without forcing me into anything and followed up with me no matter how busy his schedule. In the end, his expert advice led me to make the best possible decision for my situation. I would highly recommend Gregory to anyone needing his expertise. Five stars ***** to Gregory and the firm!

Approximately eight months ago I found myself in a legal dispute with a former employer. I immediately began to search for a lawyer/law firm that I believed would understand my case and represent me aggressively in this legal matter. I was fortunate enough to find Phillips & Associates. I reached out to the law firm and was lucky enough to speak with Silvia C. Stanciu, Esq.. Silvia listened to my facts of the case over the telephone, and then met with me immediately. Silvia was kind, warm, thorough and completely understanding. She immediately put me as ease. Silvia is well versed in the law, and represents her clients with a fierceness and passion that is hard to find today. If you are ever in need of legal counsel. Do yourself a favor and contact Silvia C. Stanciu, Esq., and Phillips & Associates. Trust me, you will thank yourself later.

In particular Ms. Silvia Stanciu and Mr.Gregory Kirschenbaum demonstrated compassion and thoughtfulness during my case. They were persistent in addressing my concerns and are clearly knowledgeable in this area of the law. I am very pleased to have worked with this law firm and will remain grateful for their assistance.

I was very nervous to get a legal process started, but after talking to Jesse Weinstein, I felt much more at ease. My case was very complicated, and he handled the whole process calmly and professionally (even when I was upset or stressed out). I am very thankful for Jesse's hard work and for the outcome of my case. Without his guidance and support, I likely would have given up early on in the process. I highly recommend Jesse, and thanks to him, I'm in a much better place now (physically and emotionally!). Thanks again, Jesse!

I came to Phillips & Associates with a difficult, whistle-blower complaint. My case ended up lasting nearly 30 months. Many members of the TPG team worked on my case. One of the reasons I chose TPG is because I anticipated a long fight--and it was important to me to have the backing of an entire firm. I did not want the defendants to win by exhausting my representation. My representation was not exhausted. They stuck with me to the end, and I received a favorable settlement. I am grateful that TPG represented me.

Joshua Friedman is an outstanding attorney! He is customer-centric, courteous, and very professional. His patience is remarkable. He answered all of my emails and calls timely, providing detailed information to my questions- some of which were repetitive, and took the time to educate me along the way. His calm demeanor also alleviated much of my anxiety during the process. His honesty and expertise were reassuring. I was very impressed with the firm and Joshua from my first contact until the final settlement. I would highly recommend the firm and Joshua Friedman!

Firstly! If you can't see it I'll expose it! Brittany Stevens wears a cape! She's a full blown hero and this is the best way I can say thank you. I had an absolute horrific shopping experience and I'd told myself just bear through it and don't be a baby. The horror did continue to which I went to the manager, he didn't wear a cape. Brittany did!! This event traumatized me and Brittany then became my therapist, mentor and confidant. Daily, things are going to happen you're not going to like and most of the time you just bury it. I did bury it and Brittany grew flowers from it, thank you so much Brittany and staff :)

The Absolute Best Employment Law Firm in NYC!

"I could not possibly put into words how grateful I am for my attorney, Gregory Kirschenbaum & the entire Phillip's & Associates team! I went back and forth for months struggling with my thoughts and emotions, just hoping it would go away if I didn't have to think about what I had gone through, mentally and emotionally for the past few years. It never happened. It never went away. I figured if I consulted with an attorney, they'd think I was just looking to start trouble. I couldn't have been more wrong! I called for a consultation and received a call back the very next day! I basically had to go over what I'd gone through the past few years. I was listened to with patience and understanding and I immediately started feeling a little better, more confident. After a 2nd consult, my case was then assigned to Gregory Kirschenbaum! I cannot express to him enough, all the ways he's helped me through this. I am forever grateful to him for all his compassion, listening and advising me through all my concerns. But most of all - just being there for me throughout this whole ordeal. I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend Phillip's & Associates, to anyone that is considering consulting with an employment attorney. You will be glad you did."

"Phillips & Associates did a wonderful job. I would recommend Brittany Stevens."

- Posted by Angel Rios

"I highly recommend Brittany Stevens as an intelligent, fair minded and experienced lawyer. She is passionate about her work and it shows. She goes the distance, and not a step short of it. Phillips & Assoc. have chosen a winner with Brittany on staff. She is well prepared, an astute listener and most importantly, shows her humanity. Such reassurance is hard to find. Hands, down, Brittany knows how to deliver a positive outcome and you come away having learned about the law and more about yourself."

"Jesse Weinstein was truly great. Nobody is excited they need an attorney especially when they are having a labor dispute. Jesse went out of his way to listen and take into account how the events were affecting me. He gave me sound advice and always explained things clearly. Every time I spoke with him I felt better afterwards. I ultimately was able to resolve my issue thanks to his help. Cannot recommend him enough!"

"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. 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!!!"

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 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."

Best Lawyer Ever!

"When I went to Bill, I was not very hopeful he could help me. Another lawyer had told me that my case was worth nothing and that I would have to pay out of pocket, up-front, for everything. Bill on the other hand was so nice to me. He made me feel comfortable and told me he would take care of me and fix the injustice I had suffered at work. To say he did so would be an understatement. Bill always emailed me back promptly, called to discuss everything that was going on, and encouraged me to stay strong no matter what my former employer's lawyers were saving about me. He understood that the situation was very hard on me and in turn worked very hard on my case. His hard work and dedication to my case lead me to a fair settlement, saving me from the hassle of court (something that would have been very expensive for me as I had moved out of NYC a few months after going to Bill). Though Bill did make money on my case, he never made me feel as though his paycheck was what was important to him, but rather him helping me out seemed to be his genuine goal. During our mediation session he even told me that he would not allow me to accept an offer that did not reflect what I should get, but at the same time he told me that he would tell me to stop if a good offer was made even if I wanted more. To clarify, my former employer's first offer was about 3k dollars, a number Bill said was insulting since I had a witness to the sexual harassment, but he also said that he did have clients who he would have advised to take the offer since it fit their case. In the end, if I did still live in NYC, Bill would be the lawyer I went to in the unfortunate case that I needed a lawyer again. Him and his staff were excellent in every way."

Client Focus, Commitment and Assured Success

"My employer failed to pay me overtime wages and terminated me when I complained about the unpaid wages. I contacted several law firms, seeking justice for what was done to me. Not one was interested in the case. Most felt that the fight was not going to have profitable returns for their firms.

I then spoke to William Phillips. He explained my legal rights both clearly and succinctly, treated me with courtesy and kept me informed along the way. His hard work and diligence resulted in a successful outcome. He exceeded my expectations by securing a better severance agreement. My thanks and appreciation go to William for his skillful handling of this matter. I knew I had found the right lawyer."

"He's the Man"

"After making several calls and reaching out to several high profiled Law firms and attorney's to take upon my case, I received negative feedback that they would be unable to take my case because there not enough evidence. One law firm would have taken my case, but I would have had to pay astronomical fee's upfront, and through out, which would have been difficult for me,but by faith, I reached out to an attorney who was a God send and without charging upfront fee's. He listened and immediately told me he would take my case. He made me feel confident as I heard the confidence in him and this is the position he held throughout the case, I got connected to a winner!"

What a Lawyer Should Be!

"When I filed my case With Bill Phillips I was in an emotionally rocky place. I had been wrongfully terminated and had just come from a very abusive work environment. So dare I say I had been living as a victim for awhile and had a victim mentality. That said defending myself felt very unfamiliar, uncomfortable and embarrassing. I felt embarrassed to admit to myself and to the world that I had tolerated such a bad work environment. Bill was all at once compassionate, firm , honest and one hell of a lawyer. I felt very well represented and my case was settled in exactly the way I wanted it to be.
Thank You Bill!"

Great Attorney! Highly Recommended!

"I would highly recommend retaining Bill Phillips as your attorney. He is the best attorney I have ever worked with. I came to meet with Bill Phillips over a sexual harassment case and even when some things felt a little uncomfortable to talk about he was understanding and made me feel very comfortable communicating with him. Even though he had other clients I was never neglected and always felt like I was a priority. He settled my case in a speedy manner and always kept me in the loop with everything that was going on. Anytime I had a question he was more then happy to answer it and always returned my phone calls in a timely matter. If you're looking for the best attorney look no further."

I Recommend Bill Philips in a Heartbeat

"I'd recommend Bill Philips in a heart-beat. He is a straight shooter. Never once was I left in the dark. Not even for one moment did I feel like being smothered by double-talk. He tells it like it is and he delivers. He brings justice to the surface and leaves no stone unturned. That's the story."
