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 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.

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.
