In 36 years of practice, Steve has been at the forefront of both fighting for, and expanding, the rights of employees who are the victims of abuse of power by their employees and who have had their civil rights violated. Examples include: trying the first case ever televised in a federal court of the United States in 1991; bringing the first case ever filed under CEPA – the NJ whistle-blower law; establishing the legal precedent that investigators in claims of sexual harassment can not hide behind the attorney-client privilege to avoid depositions; being lead counsel on a 189 plaintiff age discrimination case wheee the court ruled that the crime fraud exception to the attorney client privilege existed in relation to fraudulent release agreements that the company gave its older laid off workers; and, winning a jury trial where the court upheld the juries award of both liquidated damages and punitive damages.

Steve has represented over 3,000 individuals bringing actions against their current or former employers and has spoken at over 100 seminars concerning employment rights. He has been repeatedly recognized by his peers for his passionate representation of individuals.

Age Discrimination/Retaliation
Steven Console, founder of Console Mattiacci Law, participated with my attorney, Rahul Munshi, in my employer discrimination case. He was present for court hearings, negotiation meetings and the court trial, which in a verdict in my favor for age discrimination and retaliation against my former employer, along with Rahul Munshi and Laura Mattiacci. When you pick a Console Mattiacci Law, you will have the support of each member of the firm. Mr. Console, along with Mr. Munshi, attended all pre-trial conferences, participated in the selection of the jury and post-trial conferences and award conferences. I experienced him as a kind, dedicated and compassionate man over a period of four years. Honestly, it was my good fortune to have him to fight for me. Frankly, I was relieved to have Console Mattiacci Law on my side.

Excellent experience with superior customer relations
I was referred to Steve Console from a friend. I was being harassed and discriminated against at work which later turned into retaliation and resulted in unjust termination. I was lost and didn't know where to go and was unsure of my rights and was in need of help, guidance and support. Steve Console, Caren Gurmankin and his team helped me from the moment I stepped into their offices until the end. I was a complete mess and a shell of myself and they stood by my side and were there whenever I needed them. I never would have been able to stand up for myself without their guidance, support and genuine care. I highly recommend their services and skills. They are the best at what they do and they truly care about their clients.
