Tenacious, dogged, relentless - that is Wigdor. These are the lawyers you want on your side in employment matters, and your adversaries do not. Wigdor is simply the best in employment law, hands down.

Employment Law - Individuals

I worked with Lawrence Pearson who was great, and I would 100% recommended him.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

This is my first time ever needing legal counsel (and I hope to never need it again), but I can honestly say Wigdor LLP has set the bar so incredibly high that I can't imagine ever having anyone else represent me. This law firm truly know the ins and outs of employment law in this country (I'm in California, and they're in New York) and goes to extreme lengths to ensure its clients receive the justice it genuinely feels they deserve. It's one thing to have excellent, top-of-the-line attorneys backing you up, but it's a whole other to also feel like they care about your case and its implications on your life as much as you do. Their hearts are just as much invested as their brains, which I think is rare but utterly welcome in this difficult and cut-throat field. I could not be more grateful to have such a stellar team of individuals helping me navigate an otherwise crappy situation.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

Nobody goes into a job thinking they will ever need a Labor & Employment Lawyer, but if you ever do, it better be of the quality of Wigdor LLP. Discrimination in the workplace is a painful experience that can break your spirit and your mind. Its impact is an unimaginable blow to one's career and life. When you are at this most vulnerable, I found the Wigdor team to listen, truly understand my situation, and represent me in ways that far surpassed my expectations. Their tenacity and fierceness are only comparable to their high touch and empathy. Just listening to the opening and closing statements in my case brought huge relief, a sense of validation and justice. They made sense of my ordeal, captured it, and represented it with inescapable rigor. I shall ever consider myself fortunate to have found this legal team and for their superb legal services.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

I am very pleased with the level of expertise, professionalism, and all-around support from Michael Willemin at Wigdor. I highly recommend Wigdor to anyone interested in pursuing the truth and justice through a world-class legal team.

Employment Law - Individuals

The Wigdor firm has represented me since 2017 to present. Douglas Wigdor, Jeanne Christensen and Lindsay Goldbrum have all made themselves available to me both professionally and personally. They helped me legally through a traumatic experience with transparency and honesty, but have also lent a friendly voice when they knew I needed it. I have successfully recommended them to others, knowing that my friends will be in great hands! I am so, so grateful for having found Wigdor Law group.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

Really appreciated Wigdor as they navigated and advised me through quite a traumatic experience. The partner who handled my case was professional and empathetic along with the associate who actively communicated with me, guiding me through the steps and reasoning of what was a completely new process!

Employment Law - Individuals

Wigdor treated my case with sensitivity and respect and gave me the confidence to move forward in the face of intimidating circumstances. Jeanne M. Christensen is a savvy, unflinching powerhouse. She won my case, not only through strategic agility but through an authentic commitment to justice, which is a rare find. Thank you, Jeanne!

Litigation - Labor & Employment

Having never needed legal representation, I couldn't have asked for a better team than Wigdor.

Their expertise will guide me for the rest of my working life.

I am very grateful to Wigdor for taking my case and fighting it with so much professionalism. I got great guidance and my lawyers were superb negotiators.

Cannot say enough good things about Wigdor and specifically David Gottlieb. They are both hard-charging advocates and compassionate, patient supporters. Wigdor’s excellent soft skills went a long way in getting me through a very challenging time in my life.

Wigdor is very responsive, aggressive in their approach, and good to have on your side. The lawyer takes the time to walk you through each step of the process and makes you comfortable during difficult times.

Employment Law - Individuals

Valdi Licul and David Schmutzer represented me from Wigdor, and I could not have asked for a better legal team. Their analysis and advocacy of my case were first-class. Being a lawyer myself, I expected to be more involved in running the case; however, they had such a tight grasp on even the intricate points that I felt incredibly comfortable in their hands throughout the process. Going up against an aggressive multi-billion-dollar firm can be daunting, but having a law firm that is half-Rottweiler/half-man like Wigdor gives one the confidence they need that they are in safe hands, irrespective of who is on the other side.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

Working with Wigdor was a most pleasant surprise. We've all heard the stereotypes of high-powered lawyers, but the entire team was extremely professional and responsive to our every need. Phone and email messages were answered right away — no matter the day or time — and despite being one among many cases at this firm, we were made to feel that ours was a priority. They spent many hours conferring with us and poring over documents preparing for each step in the legal process. Their instincts were always right on and just about everything they said they would do for us was borne out in the end. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to this office. When it comes to labor and employment litigation, I can't imagine being in better hands!
