With Gloria Allred, we represent dozens of individuals who were victimized by Jeffrey Epstein and his web of sexual assault and abuse and trafficking.

We represent a former New Jersey public high school student who claims that school officials failed to protect her from severe and pervasive retaliation by her fellow students after her parents reported a shocking incident of anti-Semitism during a school field trip. Read extensive coverage of the lawsuit in the New York Times.
We represented Summer Zervos in her defamation lawsuit against Donald J. Trump for nearly three years, from its initial filing just before he took office, defeating multiple efforts in three different courts by Trump to have the case dismissed or stayed. Ms. Zervos bravely came forward as one of several women who reported being forcibly groped by Trump, who then falsely branded her as a liar.
We have represented more than 250 victims of Dr. Reginald Archibald, a renowned pediatric endocrinologist who used his position at Rockefeller to abuse hundreds of children over many decades. We worked with our clients to advocate for passage of the Child Victims Act, have so far amicably resolved more than 200 claims, and are pursuing Rockefeller in the courts.
Together with Craig Gurian of the Anti-Discrimination Center, Inc., we represent plaintiffs challenging New York City’s so-called “community preference” policy, which perpetuates racial segregation in an already segregated city.
