I lost my Wall Street employment in a gender discrimination case a couple of years ago. I was lucky that Kevin got recommended by a friend who went through a similar situation and spoke of Kevin as the best employment lawyer in New York. Kevin is highly strategic and extremely knowledgeable of employment laws. He made sure he understood my case and clearly described to me the available options making sure that he took my personal needs and circumstances into account. Kevin was always available to offer his advice and support. In this highly stressful and difficult situation this proved to be extremely valuable. Under his guidance I was able to resolve my gender discrimination case favorably. It felt really great to experience that the Wall Street Boys cannot get away with bad behavior anymore!

I highly recommend Kevin Mintzer in all employment-related disputes with current or former employers. Kevin understand the merits of your case, and the strategy to be used, from your first meeting. I found Kevin's ability to summarize the merits of my case and my negotiating position at the pre-EEOC, EEOC, and trial court levels prepared me for the stressful time surrounding an employee-employer lawsuit. I chose Kevin as an attorney because of his established and successful practice in representing professional women- namely executives, women in finance and women in the law.
He understands how to negotiate with those representing the employer in such industries and that is key. I never felt helpless, or unsure of anything during my dispute. Kevin timely negotiated the deal I was hoping for and kept me grounded and confident in my case throughout. I highly recommend Mr. Mintzer and I am grateful he took my case.

Although the circumstances that brought me to Kevin Mintzer's office were deplorable, I lucked out in retaining such a thoughtful, but tough, lawyer.
For over two years, Mintzer represented me in a sexual harassment and discrimination case and his professionalism, responsiveness and sensitivity made me feel very comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. This includes speaking with investigators, law enforcement, the media and more. I never wondered whether he had my best interest at heart; he took my personal circumstances into account and fought hard. Thanks to him, we were able to come to a satisfactory resolution as a result of mediation.
