Our Mission

We represent New York City workers in unpaid overtime lawsuits, sexual harassment, workplace injuries, discrimination and other employment law matters.  Our main office is in New York City.  Our attorneys and paralegals are available to meet you also in Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Long Island.  We provide free consultations and there is no upfront fee required.  That means you do not need to pay us to take your case.  We will investigate the case, and if we take the case, we only get paid if we win you money either through a settlement or judgment.


At LawyerforWorkers we’re passionate about getting New York City workers paid right.  We have been privileged to have represented thousands of workers, in hundreds of lawsuits.  Our entire team is ready to fight for you.  Whether your case is big or small, when we take a case, we take it to win it.   Once we take your case, our lead attorney, Moe will review all of the facts, evidence, and laws that apply in your case and develop a strategy for success in your case.  You can expect regular updates, and the ability to speak directly with Moe to go over any issues that come up and refining the strategy to ensure the best possible results.
