About Us

Read about our dedicated employment law attorneys by following the links below.

You can tell a lot about someone by who they root for, what they stand for and what they do when faced with adversity. We have dedicated our careers to protecting the rights of workers. We don’t represent ideas or constructs like companies; instead, we represent people like you – people who work for a living. While most of us in the workplace can be fired at will, employees still have certain legal rights. You have the right to be free from unlawful retaliation, discrimination and harassment, including disability discrimination, age discrimination, and pregnancy discrimination, among others.

Attorney Claudia A. Reis We Stand by Workers by Protecting Their Rights

Employers must provide reasonable accommodations for employees’ medical conditions, pregnancies, and religious obligations. If you or a family member is seriously ill or if you are pregnant, you have the right to a leave of absence from work and the right to return to work after that leave ends. Employers must pay you minimum wage, overtime pay and prevailing wages on public construction projects and cannot steal your tips. Employees have the right to blow the whistle on potential violations of law or public policy without fear of retaliation. If you are fortunate enough to have an employment contract, your employer must honor that agreement.

People take pride in their work and need their jobs. Our self-esteem and our very identities are often deeply tied to what we do for a living. When your employer attacks your livelihood, more than just your income is at stake. You and your family’s physical health and emotional well-being are at risk. We understand that and fight to make adversaries, judges and juries understand it, too.

We Work Hard Both in and Out of the Courtroom

Throughout our careers in New Jersey, we have worked hard to expand and protect employee rights by lobbying legislators, writing friend-of-the-court briefs to our Appellate and Supreme Courts, and fighting hard for our clients every day both in and out of the courtroom. Whether you are seeking a lawyer to negotiate the resolution of your claims against your employer, file a lawsuit for you or review the terms of an agreement for you, we will put our big-firm credentials, small-firm attention, hard-earned professional reputations and street-fighting toughness to work for you. Don’t take our word for it; look through our website and see what we are doing, what we have done, and what our clients say about us.

Do You Have a Claim?

We have successfully represented thousands of employees in workplace harassment, discrimination, whistleblower retaliation, other retaliation, wrongful discharge, wage and hour, family and medical leave, accommodation, executive contract, and restrictive covenant (non-compete) cases.

"Professional and Knowledgeable Attorney. At what was supposed to be the highest point in my career suddenly became the most harassing and lowest point of my career and I was passed over for a promotion. Not because the other person was more qualified than I was, but because I followed the law and did the right thing and the people I worked for did not like that. After researching several attorneys, my wife and I found Claudia, and the decision to retain her was the best decision we ever made. After explaining our case to Claudia, we found that she was not only extremely professional but a very caring human being. Throughout the entire process of our case, Claudia was there with us every step of the way. She explained every single proceeding that we had to go through and guided us, not only as a professional attorney in and out of court, but personally as a caring and understanding person. Because of her extensive working knowledge of employment and labor laws, Claudia was able to successfully resolve our case. My wife and I will always be extremely grateful for Claudia’s hard work and dedication, and we highly recommend Claudia Reis to anyone seeking an attorney who practices in employment and labor laws."

"Professionalism, integrity, and determination. Outstanding representation! Chris Lenzo did an outstanding job in my employment discrimination case. He responded to my questions in a timely fashion, provided clear communication through each step of the process, and handled my case in an honest and straight forward manner. Chris’s expertise in employment law along with his hard work ensured justice would prevail in my case and got me the compensation I deserved. Likewise, Chris’s law firm staff was professional, courteous, organized, and effective. I highly recommend Chirs Lenzo’s firm to anyone with an employment legal matter in New Jersey or New York."

"Remarkable professional. I have worked with Ms. Reis and her firm for the past three years. During the consultation process, you will immediately experience her compassion as she offers suggestions and guides you through the difficult situation you are dealing with. Her attention to detail, timely follow up and candid manner ensured me that I was well-protected and represented. Ms. Reis always went above and beyond to protect me legally. She is a very strong and tough (when necessary) advocate for the individual she represents. Her support staff is equally diligent. I would recommend her without reservation." A.M.
