About Patricia

Learn Patricia’s areas of practice.

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.

Outstanding Representation
My experience with Schall & Barasch was absolutely amazing. Patricia Barasch showed consistent professionalism during the course of my entire case. For three years, Patricia showed empathy, integrity, and dedication. Both Richard and Patricia, would frequently collaborate to make sure that my case was going in the right direction. They were careful, calculated and most importantly caring. At no time did I feel unsupported. Patricia compassionately and with great care made sure both my wife and I were comfortable and happy with the decisions that were presented in settlement. In finality of the case, I feel vindicated and the wrongs that were done to me were substantiated. Both Patricia and Richard are to be thanked for their hard work, dedication and tenacity. I would highly recommend their practice to anyone who may need their services.

Patricia fought for my rights!
I was referred to Patricia Barasch for my wrongful termination and age discrimination case. Although I was going through one of the most difficult times in my life and feeling depressed, worthless and defeated, Attorney Barasch and her partner, Attorney Richard Schall, made me feel confident and secure. I was kept in the loop and told what I should expect during the entire process. Time was taken to thoroughly prepare me for the deposition process. All of my expectations, and then some, were met! I highly recommend this firm if you have any need at all for an employment attorney. Patricia and Richard will advocate for your rights!

Great Experience
I found Patricia to be straightforward, honest and helpful in dealing with a difficult issue. She took the time to listen and understand my situation, answered my questions and provided guidance in an area that was unfamiliar to me. A very good experience.

Patricia Barasch is professional, compassionate, and most importantly, she gets the job done!
My case was complex and very frustrating at times. Despite this, Patricia Barasch stayed focused and helped me to stay focused. She was diligent and unwavering. In the end, Patricia negotiated a settlement I am very happy with. I highly recommend Schall and Barasch!

Wonderful!
When I was bullied into resigning from an executive leadership position, Patricia Barasch helped me to understand my rights and my options. Her interactions with me were always compassionate and respectful and she represented me with integrity, expertise and effectiveness.

Forever Fight For The Pink!!
I had no idea what to expect when I first called the Schall & Barasch firm. I had no idea if I even had a case. Richard and Patricia took the time to listen to my story, research the new law pertaining to my case & did absolutely everything in their power to fight for me! They are truly remarkable people! They are loyal & compassionate. They answer the phone calls and emails when someone like me has 12 million questions about every little thing. You’re not just a “client” to them, you’re a real person. I’d recommend them to every single solitary person who wants a genuine legal team that goes above and beyond!!!!

The perfect attorney for me...
In my case it was imperative that I find an attorney who would be strong against a formidable foe, which would be my former employer. I came across Patricia Barasch via referral from an amazingly well-respected labor attorney with whom I went to school, but is located in another state. Without hesitation he insisted I speak with Patricia and it would be clear as to why she would be perfect in my case. I found her to be a great listener, and one who held firm to my needs and demands, regardless of how difficult the opposition was. In the end we came to an amicable outcome and I was very happy with my representation. If you need a very, very good attorney, you needn't look any further.

Excellent Employment Lawyer!
I found Patricia Barasch to be a thoughtful, results-oriented advocate. It goes without saying that she has an excellent understanding of the applicable law. Equally important, at the end of the retention, I felt I had received good value for the fees that I had incurred.

Outstanding Professional
Patricia is an outstanding attorney who is a national leader among labor and employment attorneys. She is professional, kind, caring, and highly competent. I hired her and worked with her for a few months. She is very knowledgeable and responsive. Cortney, who is her staff person, was very helpful along the way, and made the process easier. I would recommend her to anyone without any hesitation - Patricia gets a 10 out of 10 for being an outstanding attorney.

Awesome experience
I had a great experience with Schall & Barasch. From my first call to Courtney all the way to the final outcome. The response time to calls and emails was almost immediate. It was a pleasure doing business with such a great firm.

Severance negotiations
Ms. Barasch negotiated a beneficial severance package from a very hostile company COO. She was very professional and communicated her plans to me every step of the way. She inspired confidence in her abilities through a very collaborative process that removed the anxiety from a very contentious situation. I would recommend Ms. Barasch to any one who is being abused by their employer.

Excellent employment attorney
Ms. Barasch represented me in an employment separation matter and did a superb and cost-efficient job in negotiating a favorable settlement for me. As an attorney, I was probably not the easiest of clients, but she handled the matter expertly and to my great satisfaction.

Academic issue
I was threatened by a Dean at Rutgers, who was attempting to censure me without pay. The case was like other similar ones, where faculty are accused of endangering students, rather than seeing the faculty role as expanding thinking. After nearly a year, I ended with a retirement plan orchestrated by my attorney, using a transition plan that I had helped to write more than 15 years ago. The university was not interested then, but now used it to award me two years at half time.

Terrific Lawyer
I met Patricia at a very low point in my professional career. I just quit a job I had loved due to crippling illness-illness that my employer blatantly ignored. She was compassionate first & foremost regarding my health, always asking how my treatment were going, was I getting healthier. She went into mama bear mode after hearing how my employer basically disregarded my medical issues, she fought tirelessly against a major Fortune 100 company to get them to pay for my medical expenses. I will always be grateful for what she did for me.

A+++++
Hands down Patricia is not just an exceptional attorney she's an exceptional human being. She helped me through one of the hardest times in my life. She's a strong, smart and caring woman. I was very lucky to have her represent me and she made sure justice was served. Her staff was wonderful as well.

Highly Recommend
I contacted Patricia during a very dark period in my professional career. At the time, I was working in an environment that I felt lacked supportive leadership, trust and strong team dynamics. When it got to a point where I felt I was being threatened and marginalized and it was time to seek consultation. I started to research employment and labor attorneys and found Patricia's name. During our discussions, she was highly organized and able to formulate an accurate picture of what I was going through based on very thorough and "spot on" questioning. At the end, I was quite happy with the timely resolution of the issue. I can attest to the fact that Patricia Barasch is one honest and knowledgeable attorney.
