About me

Patricia Barasch is a founding partner and has helped to build Schall & Barasch into one of the preeminent plaintiffs’ employment-rights law firms in the State. Throughout her nearly 20-year career, she has represented employees in cases involving all types of unfair and illegal employment practices including claims involving race, sex, age, and disability discrimination, reasonable accommodation, the Family Medical Leave Act, wrongful termination, breach of contract, retaliation and non-compete agreements.

Ms. Barasch has won a number of trial victories against some of the largest corporations in the State of New Jersey, including PSEG, Raytheon and Harrah’s Casino Hotel. Along with partner Richard Schall, she served as the attorney for the plaintiff in the landmark case Maw v. Advanced Clinical Communications, Inc. (ultimately decided by the Supreme Court), challenging an employer’s right to fire an employee simply because she refused to sign an overbroad non-compete agreement. Along with partner Richard Schall, Ms. Barasch successfully brought the case of Seiden v. Marina Associates, the very first case in the State of New Jersey to clearly address the proper legal framework for analyzing reasonable accommodation/disability discrimination cases.

In 2006, South Jersey Magazine chose Ms. Barasch as one of the region’s top ten women business leaders. According to the magazine and women’s organizations which nominated her, Patricia “…personifies diligence, success, diversity of talent and philanthropic spirit that characterizes an outstanding business leader.
