Steven Warshawsky represented me in a labor law case. I was extremely satisfied with result I received. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a labor lawyer. He listened to all my concerns, and gives his honest opinions. I am happy I had him as my attorney, i have no regrets.
I had an excellent experience working with Steve Warshawsky on a not so straightforward employment separation agreement. Steve took the time to listen to my concerns and read through my supporting documentation. What I really appreciated the most was Steve's direct advice - he really knows his stuff and is not afraid to tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. He will explain what the employer / the other side of a contract will be looking for and be paying the most attention to, as well as how to most effectively structure your communication to increase the chances of getting what you are trying to achieve. Steve understood my stress and made himself available as much as he could to manage my time sensitive case, which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely use Steve again if needed.
After an unsuccessful search for a lawyer who wasn't afraid to represent me I stumbled across Mr. Warshawsky. Every part of the process was clear! If I had a question he answered it. If I had a concern he addressed it. He fought for everything I wanted and always made sure whatever was happening that I was comfortable with. If your looking for someone who know's their stuff and goes above and beyond Mr. Warshawsky is your guy.
The only way I can describe the kind of attorney and man Steven Warshawsky is, is by giving you a glance into what kind of dilemma I was in when I first met Mr. Warshawsky. I had been falsely accused of the most ridiculous crime conceivable. Making a phone call. I was removed from my home on a freezing cold February night to be driven 3 hours from home to be accused of making a phone call! I was incarcerated overnight. I have never been in trouble before in my life. Not even a speeding ticket. When I was released 24 hours later on ROR, I was advised to seek an attorney out in Suffolk County who knows how things work out there. My family and I did as we were advised to do. I hired a big shot attorney, very well-known out in Suffolk County. My family and I overpaid this attorney. But we knew no better. From my first appearance with this big shot attorney, I realized I had made a terrible mistake. What was happening to me was never explained to me. He did not care I was innocent. All he kept telling me to do was accept the pleas offered so that he can be free of me and get money from other poor people in serious trouble. At some point, I realized this man was NOT the attorney I required to prove my innocence. I fired him and represented myself for a few months! No ladies and gentleman, I am not a lawyer or even a paralegal. I am an executive secretary so out of my league. At this point it had taken it’s toll on me. I was falsely accused in the most corrupt area I could have been accused in and had no help at all, no one who believed in my innocence.
Now, the story of how I came to meet Mr. Warshawsky begins. I ran around all over to find myself an attorney who believed in me. I just so happened to find Mr. Warshawsky online of all places. From the first meeting with Mr. Warshawsky and his young protégé Mr. Swartz, I knew my prayers were answered.
He was patient, compassionate, not looking at his watch every 5 minutes, but was truly listening to me. When I received the email from Mr. Warshawsky that he was willing to help me, I cried. I found the help I have been praying for. In the months that followed, Mr. Warshawsky, Mr. Swartz and I would spend hours going over every scenario that could happen. He answered all my questions. For how can a layman understand what was happening? He understood how horrified I was and was truly patient. Almost 2 years after my arrest, after being jerked around after being offered many pleas, I was going to trial! All through the proceedings (4 days) I frantically wrote Mr. Warshawsky notes. He would smile back at me and write me, relax you are not alone, he would even draw me smiley faces to make a terrified me calm down. Somehow, Mr. Warshawsky got the truth to come out. He was so engaging and incredible in the way he spoke that other attorney’s came from other court rooms to see this amazing man represent his client. Everyone hung on his every word. When Her Honor called for a break the jury seemed disappointed. They wanted to see him at work see what he would say next. When the jury went into deliberation, he walked around the court building with me. We went over every scenario that could happen. He promised me I would be alright. About 20 minutes into deliberations a verdict was in. With Mr. Warshawsky by my side I reentered that court room to learn my fate.
I was vindicated of all charges. After 2 years of living hell. I have been given my life back thanks to this man. My family and I had prayed long and hard for a savior to help us. I truly, as a religious person, believe Mr. Warshawsky to be that savior. I will be in his debt for the rest of my life. I could not recommend a better man to help you. I have met with over 30 lawyers before finding Mr. Warshawsky. He stood beside his client and saw me through and with his help the truth came out. If you ever are to find yourself or loved one in trouble. He is the answer to your prayers.

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.
