Prominent New York law firm focusing on NYC Sexual Harassment and NY Discrimination

With a Team of Lawyers in three states, Derek T. Smith has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of his clients. In fact, he and his law firm have obtained four (4) multi-million dollar verdicts in just the last four (4) years. Derek Smith is also proud to have obtained the largest employment discrimination jury verdict ever to have been sustained on appeal in New York. There is absolutely no fee unless we recover and a consultation is always free and encouraged. If you are looking for a sexual harassment or discrimination lawyer, look no further. Derek Smith has the million dollar jury verdicts to back up and support his negotiations for a great settlement for you. If you are looking at other lawyers, make sure to ask them how many jury verdicts they have under their belt, let alone multi-million dollar ones. You cannot pick the facts of your case, but you certainly can pick the best lawyer to represent you: One who knows the law . . . One who knows how to negotiate . . . and One who has the experience to take the employer all the way to a jury verdict if necessary. Derek Smith has settled literally thousands of cases in his years of practice and his negotiation skills are top notch. We always try to first settle cases confidentially and only if unsuccessful do we continue down the road of litigation.

Founding partner of the Derek Smith Law Group, PLLC, Attorney Smith received his B.A. from The University of Michigan and his law degree from Penn State Dickinson School of Law. He is also fluent in French and studied at the Université de Droit, d'Économie, et des Sciences d'Aix-Marseille in Aix-en-Provence, France. He Currently, he practices at the Derek T.

Derek is proud to have obtained numerous multi-million dollar settlement and verdicts on behalf of his clients, who have been abused, tormented, and humiliated at work. He and his firm have obtained a $4,000,000 verdict on behalf of a nurse against the Country's largest private hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital; a $2,200,000 verdict on behalf of a worker at a well known bar and restaurant supply company for discrimination and retaliation; a $2,500,000 verdict on behalf of a woman sexual harassed by a restaurant owner; and a $1,600,000 verdict on behalf of a woman who was subject to a hostile work environment while working as a chef.

A long time ago, a fellow lawyer told Derek not to become so emotionally involved in his clients' cases. Derek Smith believes this is 100% wrong. Derek Smith does, in fact, become emotionally involved in his clients' cases and this level of involvement only serves to better represent his clients and obtain the best results for them. Derek Smith believes in becoming partners with his clients and work together with them to make the absolute best decisions for the case.
