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.
I would enthusiastically recommend NYC attorney Derek Smith to anyone in search of a good sexual harassment lawyer in New York City. Derek is very smart, kind and responsive.

I recently spoke to Mr. Smith concerning my case against a former employer. He eased my fears and was able to help me with my case so that I could move forward.. His compassion for his clients is true and genuine. He was a true gentleman and a lawyer that I would refer my friends to!
