About me

In May of 2014, I founded Cordello Law PLLC to focus entirely on labor and employment litigation on behalf of employees throughout the Rochester, New York area. Since that time, my law firm has been instrumental in obtaining significant financial recoveries for clients through the litigation and negotiation of employment disputes. While a firm’s success is generally measured from a financial standpoint, I am proud of the fact that my cases have also led to changes in illegal and abusive employment practices.


Thank you for showing an interest in contacting me regarding your legal concerns. Please send an email, or give me a call at 585-857-9684. My Rochester, New York office location offers free convenient parking. Don't hesitate to contact me regarding any questions and/or concerns. Timing is often crucial in these matters, and we can discuss your situation briefly at no charge over the telephone and then schedule an in-person consultation to look into your situation in further detail.
