We were served with a frivolous and baseless lawsuit by a former employer. We contacted a few lawyers in New York and didn't feel comfortable with what we heard. We then contacted Mr. Warshawsky, who was just who we needed.
Even though the case was without legal merit, it still had to work its way through the system and it was very stressful. Having Mr. Warshawsky on our side was so re-assuring. He explained his steps for fighting the suit, worked very quickly to get things filed, really knew his facts on the legal merits (or lack thereof) of the case, and not even 6 months later, the case was dismissed. We believe that was mainly due to his ability to quickly file motions in the case and explain the legal facts to the opposing counsel (a corporate lawyer without any employment law experience). We also were very relieved to find that Mr. Warshawsksy's fees were extremely competitive and very fair.
Heaven forbid we ever have to go through this again, but if we do, we know who we will call first.

I am an attorney and retained Mr. Warshawsky. He provided top-quality information and created a good strategy. He knew as much about the facts of the case as I did and even more about the law.

I recommend Steve highly. Steve coached me through negotiations and provided practical, prompt advice. Responsiveness in time-sensitive negotiations is critical and he was there for me.

I greatly benefited from Mr Warshawskys help. Steven is a highly effective, knowledgable and competent professional that was clear, to the point and a pleasure to deal with at all times.
I could not recommend steven enough and oddly wish I had another lawsuit to see him excel in! His letter to the opposing party are extremely efficient.

After being in an extremely difficult situation and more than 4 different attorneys turning my case down, I was fortunate to have met Steven. He was very cordial and gave me the time of day, taking time to meet me on many occasions to review my potential case. After much discussion, we proceeded to file a suit and the journey began against a Municipality that had wronged me.
During the slow and tedious process, Steven was very sincere and always kept me in the loop. My calls and emails were always returned in a promptly timeframe with my questions always answered. He always demonstrated a mastery of the subject matter and helped answer any questions I had. Federal cases are often complex and time consuming, so I was able to deal with Steven for approximately 3 years.
Near the end of the case and after numerous discussions, we finally approached a path to settlement and concluded the case. While there are numerous factors that are often beyond one's control, he was very diligent to advise me of potential risk/reward and willing to proceed based on my will.
I have met many attorneys and deal with many on a professional level. I must say I NEVER felt Steven was in it for the money, but more so to right what was once wronged to me. I felt he was sincere from start to finish and gave me a fighting chance in a legal capacity. He is experienced and well hearted.
I would recommend Steven to anyone looking for a fantastic attorney and excellent legal representation. I wish him well in his endeavors and would return to him should I ever have the need to.

Amazing and talented attorney with integrity. He is very logical, smart and experienced and will give you a realistic assessment of your situation. He is also an excellent writer which to me is a very important quality in an attorney. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends or family.

Oh my! I was very satisfied with Steven Warshawsky's performance. I contacted Mr. Warshawsky after another attorney of mine appeared to be half-stepping and intimidated by the organization I was suing. Mr. Warshawsky called me back the next day, assessed the case, and assumed the case. He explained the strong and weak points of my case with me in detail. He suggested angles we could pursue and also listened to my input. We were a team! He was knowledgeable, informative and compassionate. He had immediate response time when I called him with any questions I had and, took "no shorts" from the organization I was suing. Mr. Warshawsky played hardball with the defendants and was able to settle for over twice the original offer in less than three weeks! If your looking for an honest attorney, who is not afraid to fight for you, give Mr. Warshawsky a try; I think you will be very satisfied.

I had a dispute with my previous employer and I talked to literally dozens of lawyers. Mr Warshawsky is by far the best one.
When you talk to an employment lawyer for anything other than harassment, discrimination etc, he would usually send you away because those are the juicy cases where lawyers can make most money out of. Yours is simply not. If you talk to a civil litigation lawyer, he would try to convince you how strong your positions are and how they can sue the crap out of the other side. But you know you don't want an expensive lawsuit. You just need a solution.
Mr Warshawsky is unique among all the lawyers I talked to. He is selfless and he really cares about whoever came to him. My free initial consultation lasted ridiculously long (he could have made a lot of money from his retained clients using that time) . He analyzed the situation from both my perspective and my employer's perspective, went through NY labor laws and found the articles and sections that are on my side, told me whether I was likely to win under each clause. I was very impressed by the extensive notes he made on his copy of the laws and how fast he looked up the sections. After the long free consultation, he recommended not to waste resources on hiring him, but I walked away with tons of helpful advice and legal knowledge.
