Best Employment Lawyer in NYC
Dave Fish has handled all of my company's labor and employment issues since our launch in the US. He is accessible and easy to deal with breaking things down for easy understanding. In the past three and a half years we have used him for everything from drafting and reviewing contracts and litigations to helping us solve sticky employee issues. In all instances we have been happy with the results. Highly recommend.

Meticulous, Hard-Working and Compassionate Attorney
Mr. Fish has represented our not-for-profit organization for over 15 years. During this time he has provided legal assistance on a number of matters including, but not limited to; employment law, contracts, insurance law, landlord tenant, victims rights and family law including child protection, custody and visitation. David has always been a phone call away whenever we have needed him and is very responsive. He is extremely thorough, professional and makes an extraordinary effort to communicative issues, options and alternatives. His expertise has been a cornerstone in enhancing our ability to deliver services to the community. It is without hesitation or reservation that I would recommend Mr. Fish to anyone needing legal representation.

Knowledgeable. Helpful. Would strongly Recommend
David was prompt in his responses to me. He called me and we spoke in regards to my situation. He gave me clear and correct instructions on how to proceed. It was unfortunate that it turned out the suit against me (breach of contract) was filed in Texas and I had to use a Texas attorney but if the plaintiff decides to sue me in NY state, I will certainly consider using his services. I've worked in acctg & mgmt for attorney's offices for 30 years. I've worked with at least 100 attorneys in my career and I can confidently say that he is not only knowledgeable but kind and understanding in his discussions with me through an extremely difficult time. His free advice was better than what I have seen others pay for!

Not a trustworthy attorney.
I hired Attorney David Fish for an employment law issue. I placed an ad Craigslist and he answered it. I had a 90 day right to sue letter. He took the case and never contacted the other attorney. I had to call the other attorney's secretary and tell her to call him, because David Fish sent me an email saying that he is not going to "chase her." He refused to pick up the phone and make a call. He waited for the statute of limitation to expire, leaving me no time to hire another attorney. I don't recommend him. He is not an aggressive attorney.
