Our practice emphasizes the fundamental relationship in business: that between employer and employee. Our attorneys have more than four decades of experience handling employment issues on behalf of both employers and employees.
Employment law is both complex and rapidly developing. Our focus on this practice area keeps us abreast of developments in the statutes and case law that directly affect our clients: the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, Wage and Hour Act, ERISA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and many others.
We understand that when you have an employment problem, you want quick and practical help. You want guidance from attorneys who focus on finding practical solutions to problems, not esoteric discussions of theory or meaningless lists of what you can't do. And whether employer or employee, you want advice that aims to keep you out of expensive litigation that chews up time and resources. As in few other areas of the law, in employment law an ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure.
When litigation becomes necessary, as it sometimes does, we have the experience and resources to help. Our attorneys are highly experienced in litigating employment cases in federal and state courts, in administrative agency proceedings before the EEOC and New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, and in the Workers' Compensation court.
Some of the services that we provide to employers include:
- General employment counseling
- Employee handbooks
- Executive compensation plans
- Sexual harassment policies
- Internal investigations
- Training for your managers and employees
- Litigation of all employment issues
Among our services to employees are:

Litigation and Dispute Resolution- Problems: Solutions
Lawyers have cases. Clients have problems that need to be solved.
When you ask, "Do I have a case? " our answer is always the same: the Firm may have a case; you have a problem that needs to be solved. Our common goal is to find a cost-effective, practical solution to your problem.
Solutions take many forms: negotiation, litigation, mediation, arbitration - our experienced attorneys strive to find the solution that best fits your unique needs and concerns.
We believe in preparing every case as if we will have to litigate it before a jury. But being thoroughly prepared does not mean overworking a case. It means knowing what information is important, how to find it, and how to present it persuasively.
At the Steinberg Law Offices, we handle litigation of a complexity that many find surprising for a smaller firm. Our attorneys successfully argue cases before the State and Federal Courts, at trial and on appeal.
The Focus of Our Practice:
- Aviation litigation
- Business and Commercial litigation
- Employment, including discrimination, harassment,& ERISA
- Estates & Trusts
- Intellectual Property
- Negligence, Personal Injury, & Workers' Compensation
- Partnership & Shareholder disputes
We understand how expensive litigation can be. We routinely work with our clients to create non-traditional fee structures that are designed to reward us for results rather than just for hours worked. Contact Frank Steinberg for more information.
We have specialized knowledge that is crucial to representing members of the aviation industry. Our attorneys include a licensed commercial pilot who holds instrument and multi-engine ratings. For us, aviation is not just an area of legal practice. It is both an avocation and a tool that we ourselves use in the conduct of our business.
Our clients in the aviation industry include pilots, airports, charter companies, fixed base operators, and businesses.
We encourage all pilots and holders of other certificates issued by the FAA to contact qualified aviation counsel at the first hint of a problem involving your certificate. The nature of the FAA enforcement process makes it crucial that you speak with an attorney who is experienced in aviation law before you speak with the FAA. Many defensible cases have been lost, with pilots suffering severe sanctions affecting their ability to fly, by communicating with the FAA before seeking legal advice.
Areas of Aviation Practice:
- Aircraft Ownership and Transfer
- FAA Investigations and Certificate Actions
- Airport Land Use Issues
- Management of Noise Complaints
- Litigation and Dispute Resolution
- NTSB matters
