About Jesse

Learn Jesse’s areas of practice.

I am sharp negotiator with a meticulous investigative approach to each one of my cases. As a result, I have obtained $11,000,000 in settlements for my clients through pre-suit negotiations, mediation, and litigation. My clientele has ranged from minimum wage workers to executives, and my multiple bar licenses have allowed me to prosecute employers throughout New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

I am also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum after securing a $1,500,000 settlement involving allegations of sexual assault and quid pro quo sexual harassment against a C-Suite executive for a major company in New York City.  Some of my other notable results include a $740,000 settlement on behalf of a Fortune 50 company executive who was subject to disparate treatment and tokenization on the basis of her race, an $800,000 settlement on behalf of pharmaceutical company executive who was wrongfully terminated based upon his age, a $500,000 settlement against a cryptocurrency hedge fund executive for sexual harassment, a $550,000 settlement on behalf of a former record label executive for race discrimination, settlements of $675,000, $535,000, and $400,000 against three separate major financial institutions in New York City for sexual assault and sexual harassment, and a $325,000 settlement in a whistleblowing case that resolved on the first day of trial.

I also tried a race discrimination case to verdict in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The case was Pardovani v. Crown Building Maintenance Co. and Jazz at Lincoln Center, Inc., Case# 15-CV-09065. I obtained a unanimous jury verdict for my client for multiple claims of race discrimination. Having heard evidence that the client was repeatedly subjected to racial slurs by his non-Black supervisors, the jury awarded him $1,800,000 in damages.

I am a military veteran, former criminal prosecutor, and zealous advocate.  I will fight for you until the bitter end.

Exactly who I needed for my case!
When I first reached out to Phillips & Associates, I wasn’t sure where to begin. I explained to Jesse Weinstein, Esq. exactly what happened to me - none of it made sense but I knew something was wrong. Being terminated was mentally and physically quite stressful for me during a very important time in my life. Due to the pandemic, I was only able to speak to Jesse over the phone & via email but he was very understanding from the beginning and fought hard for me. He answered all my questions and spoke with me about my concerns. I genuinely appreciate everything he did for me to resolve my matter and I’m extremely grateful for Jesse’s services during such a difficult time. I would definitely recommend Jesse.

Mr.
In May 2019, I contacted the law firm of Phillips and Associates, PLLC regarding the potential violation of State and Federal Discrimination Laws by my former employer. An in-person consultation was promptly scheduled and I had a preliminary exploratory interview with a Paralegal who took my statement in connection with the events, circumstances and actions that had transpired. I then met with Jesse Weinstein, Esq for a more in depth and uninterrupted interview. He showed a keen and compassionate interest in what I had to say, asked thoughtful and precise questions, and treated me with respect and dignity. The firm agreed to represent me and assigned Mr. Jesse Weinstein to my case. He always made himself available to me, responded to phone calls and e-mails in a timely manner, consulted with me before any action and kept me informed of his progress. I was pleased with the final result he obtained for me in June 2020. I highly commend and recommend Mr. Jesse Weinstein and his firm. Nestor Kalyna

He was always happy to answer all the questions I had and made sure I felt comfortable along every step of the way. Overall, I am very happy to have chosen Jesse Weinstein to represent me and will gladly hire him again.

Jesse got me what I wanted!
I hired Jesse Weinstein of Phillips & Associates to represent myself during a recent case and it was a great decision.  From our first conversation, Jesse made sure I was aware of all the steps involved in the process and he did a great job of explaining to me all my options. During the process Jesse kept me informed and provided updates on where we were on a ruling and was able to help me get a decision I was happy with.  If you're in need of representation, I'd highly recommend Jesse Weinstein, at Phillips & Associates.

Working with Jesse Weinstein was fantastic
I needed a knowledgeable employment attorney and after speaking with 3 other attorneys I found Jesse Weinstein at Phillips & Associates, PLLC. Jesse was incredibly professional, thorough and responsive. He helped me navigate and understand time sensitive documents and made sure to follow-up in a timely manner to all my questions, calls and emails. I would definitely work with him again and highly recommend his services.

Patient and Hardworking Lawyer
When I first contacted Phillips and Associates, I didn't know what to expect. I was very nervous to take legal action, but after speaking to Jesse Weinstein, I knew he was the right lawyer for my case. Jesse is extremely patient, kind and reliable--and he remained that way throughout the entire legal process. My case was a very difficult case with multiple people involved, but Jesse worked hard and got me the best outcome possible--all during a global pandemic! Without his hard work and guidance, I likely wouldn't have had the courage to leave a toxic work environment and ultimately land a new, better gig. I highly recommend Jesse!

Great lawyer, job well done
I’m so glad I contacted this law firm. They are amazing and are fortunate to have an attorney like Jessie Weinstein as part of their firm. From the get go, Jessie was laser focused and aggressive in getting the job done and done right. He leveled the playing field and his representation made me feel heard, loud and clear. That wasn’t something I felt before contacting Phillips and Associates so it was well worth it. I highly recommend Jessie Weinstein and Phillips and Associates whenever workplace impropriety rears it’s ugly head.

Excellent lawyer
I was extremely fortunate to be represented by Jesse Weinstein and I could not be happier with the outcome. Jesse saw the merit in my case, took it on and believed in me after I had unsuccessfully consulted other attorney’s. From the very beginning of his representation Jesse worked tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome on my behalf and for that I’m extremely thankful. His honesty, legal knowledge, attention to detail and energy is outstanding. Jesse always promptly responded to my requests and deftly guided me every step of the way. Knowing that I had a strong advocate beside me made going through a very stressful time a lot easier. I give Jesse my highest recommendation as an outstanding attorney and coming from me that says a lot because I don’t give praise lightly.

Employment Discrimination client
After contacting Phillips and Associates law firm about my concern they decided to take my case. I was assigned Jesse Weinstein to represent me in my discrimination matter. I could tell after our first contact that Jesse cared about me, and my concerns as he called me often to go over the facts of my case. Not only did we discuss facts of the case but he made me feel like my feelings mattered as well. Jesse Weinstein helped me to resolve my case in less than 5 months. He filed our complaint immediately, and was in constant contact with the other parties law team. One of the things that meant the most to me is that he called me anytime he had an update, I didn’t have to sit and wonder what was happening with my case. I want to thank you for everything you did for me and strongly recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal assistance that Jesse handles.

Highly Recommend
I've worked with and for attorneys for several years and I have to say that Jesse Weinstein and his Firm really go way above and beyond from start to finish in everything they do. He quickly returned every call and addressed every concern I had and whenever he had any doubt, he consulted with the senior partners in his Firm; so I had the added benefit of the combined knowledge and experience of the entire firm. Jesse was professional, thorough and compassionate and I know I obtained the best possible outcome for my case.

Great Experience
I strongly recommend Jesse Weinstein if you need a highly capable, responsive, and hard-working attorney. Jesse worked through the details of a complicated case and delivered beyond my expectations. The process was lengthy and full of challenges but Jesse consistently pressed forward on my behalf and communicated clearly with me. I was very fortunate to find him during my search for representation and I would work with him again without hesitation.
