Employment And Business Law Services Delivered By Experienced Attorneys

Two qualities are particularly important when selecting a law firm to represent your company in employment and business litigation matters: effectiveness and efficiency. The Law Office of Peter G. Goodman, PLLC, can deliver both. Our attorneys have decades of experience practicing workplace law and understand how a pending legal matter can distract you from your business goals.

Attorney Peter G. Goodman, founder of the firm, as well as Jules Z. Halpern and Paul L. Scrom Jr., who are of counsel, have backgrounds that position them well to handle all aspects of the employer/employee relationship under federal, state and local employment laws. Because we are a boutique firm, your matter will receive focused and personalized attention.


We Represent Both Employers And Employees

The Law Office of Peter G. Goodman, PLLC, is equipped to protect employers and help them prevent employment claims through the development of proper human resources procedures and policies. Our attorneys also have experience defending employers in federal and state courts, arbitration and mediation venues, as well as before administrative agencies and commissions. Just some of the examples of the issues for which we can provide representation are defense against claims of workplace harassment, discrimination and retaliation; employment classification issues; and wage and hour claims.

While a significant proportion of our caseload is focused on serving employers throughout the greater New York City area, the firm also works extensively with individual employees. We help individuals navigate transitions in the workplace through counseling, negotiating and drafting employment contracts, severance agreements, and restrictive covenants such as noncompete, non-solicitation and nondisclosure agreements. We also represent individuals in recovering compensation such as severance, bonuses and commissions under employment agreements. Our extensive work representing employers enables us to bring an insightful perspective to these cases.

Your Time Is Valuable – Let Us Help You Find Cost-Effective Legal Solutions

Unlike larger law firms, we offer our clients the benefit of a more nimble practice, including the ability to consider alternative fee arrangements. To learn more about how the Law Office of Peter G.
