About V. Jonas Urba

I have been New York - based since 2011. Exclusively employment law matters across New York State. Having more than 20 years of employment law litigation and mediation experience is not unique. But accumulating 7 years of experience in each of three distinct states, in three disparate parts of our country, is. My background and experience allows me to understand all of New York State, not just the metropolitan area, with a practice continuously reminding me of why I will never leave New York. New Yorkers are super bright. As adversaries, New Yorkers are, for the most part, tough but fair. Even New York's best and brightest might not truly get the "average American" among whom I spent the majority of my adult… Read more

    If you need an attorney this is the one to have! Jonas represented me with my case. We began over the phone with a consult due to distance and schedule. Jonas reviewed the facts I provided and requested additional documents. I was amazed we could take care of this with email and a phone call. My case was scheduled to be heard and then COVID hit. I didn't think my case would ever be heard. Jonas requested our case be heard via Zoom and a Zoom mediation was scheduled. Jonas and I held several Zoom conferences prior to the mediation to become comfortable with the process. Jonas provided valuable knowledge of the laws, fought hard for my rights and returned a favorable outcome in my case. I would recommend Jonas to family, friends and anyone in need of a great attorney. Read less

    Jonas and I worked together on a salesperson-employer dispute for 6 months which ended with a very good result. I could not have duplicated it alone in a million years. Jonas and I quickly formed a team, I brought insights about sales he needed and he worked the strategy, tactics and case law brilliantly You can tell that Jonas derives satisfaction from helping those in need. I never felt like it was about the money - always available, always positive - I recommend him unequivocally. Read less

    Lawyer Response:

    Thank you very much. Sales professionals face challenging times. The numbers are tight and future prospects are uncertain. Having worked sales decades ago, before law school, it's no picnic like the uninitiated might think.

    I think anyone who has received a termination letter can benefit from speaking with an experienced and competent employment attorney to analyze it when the timing and terms do not smell right. Mr. Urba was able to assist me with an unfair termination due to pregnancy discrimination and I'm pleased with the results and knowledge gained from this experience. Mr. Urba was recently mentioned in a NY Times article where he successfully resolved a claim against Planned Parenthood; quite a feat! Read less

    Unlike the large firms whom I initially consulted, Jonas took time to listen to my individual situation, concerns, and goals. I am not certain that anyone except Jonas could have achieved such a positive outcome, as he is uniquely experienced as a state advisor on labor and professional matters . Whether you require a negotiator or litigator - Jonas is remarkably effective and his dedication and responsiveness to those he represents is unparalleled in my experience. Read less
