Donald L. Sapir has been a practitioner of labor and employment law for more than thirty-six years. He has had experience representing employees from all walks of life, businesses both large and small, and labor organizations and their affiliated pension and welfare funds.

Mr. Sapir has handled thousands of matters involving virtually every type of claim known to labor and employment lawyers, including: unlawful terminations; discrimination based on race, national origin, disability, age, gender, and sexual orientation; wage and hour/overtime; sexual harassment; retaliation due to complaints of discriminatory, unlawful, or unethical practices; whistleblower protection Dodd/Frank, False Claims Act, and other laws; pension claims; unfair labor practices; restrictive covenants; employment agreements; separation/severance agreements; Family Medical Leave Act leave, disability leave, and military leave (USERRA); reasonable accommodations to disabilities; individual and class actions; injunctions, damages, and other relief; claims before N.Y.S. Division of Human Rights; U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, N.Y.C. Human Rights Commission, all state courts; all federal courts. Litigation activities have resulted in precedent-setting decisions and impressive verdicts. While he is always willing to discuss a reasonable settlement that will satisfy the objectives of his client, he will litigate when necessary and prosecute a claim to the full extent permitted by the law. Mediation is often used as a technique to accomplish goals of clients and to minimize a client's costs of achieving those goals.

Bar Association, a past Chair of the Labor and Employment Law Committee of the Westchester County Bar Association, a past Executive Board Member of the National Employment Lawyers Association/New York Chapter, a past Chair of the Alternate Dispute Resolution Committee of the American Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section, and a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association virtually since its inception.

Mr. Sapir has been a contributing author or editor to various treatises on labor and employment law, including Discrimination in the Workplace, New York Employment Litigation Guide, and Employment Discrimination Law.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
