    Melissa gave my case her full & honest attention from the first phone call. Being represented by Melissa made me feel secure and I was confident in her abilities to move the case in the desired direction. She continued to act in my best interests even as my former employer and their counsel showed lack of professionalism and courtesy during the negotiations. Melissa is bright, gracious and knows how to fight for her clients. Read less

    Melissa was a pleasure to work with. My employment case was stressful and draining so I'm especially grateful for how quickly the matter was handled. She was attentive, extremely patient and always made sure to explain everything to me. She appeared to be very knowledgeable of the laws surrounding my case and fought hard to ensure that my issues were adequately resolved. Melissa was very responsive and returned my emails/calls within a few hours at most. I will continue to refer her. Read less

Representative Clients
Our Public Interest Committee (PIC) oversees Outten & Golden's work on public interest employment-related cases on behalf of low-income clients who cannot afford a lawyer. O&G has co-counseled cases with the ACLU Women's Rights Project, the NYCLU Reproductive Rights Project, the NYU Immigrant Rights Clinic, the National Employment Lawyers Project, the Legal Aid Society of New York, MFY Legal Services, the Sex Workers Project at the Urban Justice Center, South Brooklyn Legal Services, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the MinKwon Center for Community Action, Make the Road New York, and HIV Law Project, among other organizations.

We represent pro bono clients for free or on a contingency basis as appropriate.

As examples of our pro bono matters, we have represented:
•A group of workers who spent months after the 9/11 attacks cleaning offices, apartments and stores near Ground Zero but were not paid proper overtime wages.
•Four low-wage factory workers whose supervisor persistently sexually harassed them.
•A cleaning woman whose employer forced her to work increased hours and perform dangerous manual labor when she became pregnant, and ultimately fired her for going to a doctor appointment.
•A gay, HIV-positive administrative assistant who was fired after complaining about discrimination by his supervisor on the basis of his sexual orientation and perceived disability.
•A low-wage immigrant restaurant worker who was fired after falling at work and requiring surgery.

O&G has often collaborated with non-profit organizations to represent thousands of low-wage workers in class action cases for violations of their civil rights and/or their rights under federal and state wage and hour laws. Clients have included garment workers, restaurant kitchen workers, retail clerks, and delivery workers.
Languages
English, Spanish, French, Portugese, Chinese (Mandarin) and Malayo.
