  1. Great Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Attorney

    • I recommend Derek Smith.

    I am a NJ attorney that practices in Northern NJ. Whenever I have a New York City sexual harassment or discrimination case I always refer to Derek Smith. He is the best in the business. He recently got offered $10,000.00 on a case that was taken to trial. Derek rejected the offer and received a $4 million dollar verdict. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an employment discrimination attorney in
    New York City.
