Welcome

Goddard Law’s Labor and Employment litigation practice seeks equality in the workplace. Our dedicated attorneys offer clients experienced, sophisticated, and cost-effective representation in discrimination and retaliation cases.

Goddard Law has prevailed in actions involving all manner of employment discrimination claims, including sexual harassment, age, race, religion, gender, disability, and sexual orientation.

Goddard Law is dedicated to representing employees and other individuals in all industries and at all employment levels. As advocates for workplace fairness, our passion and profession is to help advance the goals of employees and protect their rights against injustices at work.

We understand how powerless individuals facing discrimination and retaliation can feel, and we have made it our duty to empower our clients to stand up to employers who have wronged them and also to move forward in the job market with confidence. The attorneys at Goddard Law are dogged and tenacious and don’t think twice about taking on employers of any size.

As evidenced from the firms’ three recent trial wins, including jury verdicts of $1.34 million, $13.4 million and $2.35 million, Goddard Law is not afraid of “David and Goliath” situations. Our cases have been covered by major media outlets including the New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News, Telemundo, Law.com, and The Daily Mail.
