Urba Law PLLC – serves all New York

Why choose us?

Workplace law and employment discrimination is all we do. We study the behavior and motives of employers and employees every day.

Jonas Urba has practiced workplace law for more than 20 years. Early in his career he handled all employment law matters for a 2,000 employee organization and today most of his clients are employees.

Having worked as a college instructor, in health care labs, fighting bank fraud, in sales, manufacturing and retail he has considerable hands on experience in real workplaces before law school.

He understands that employment law is all about people and the challenges they face. He has lived and practiced workplace law in the Midwest, Western United States and the South. His upstate clients enjoy working with him as do many city dwellers in the big apple.

The study of human behavior and driving motivators for employees and employers prompted him to earn certifications in fraud examination and civil mediation. He applies those skills regularly.

He’s been sworn into five federal district courts around the country but limits his employment law practice to New York State. He is admitted to both the Southern and Eastern District Courts of New York. He also maintains an inactive license to practice law in Massachusetts.

Types of claims?

The most frequently handled employment law and employment discrimination matters are:

Race discrimination

Sex discrimination

Disability discrimination

Severance and non-compete agreements

Unpaid overtime claims.

Although most of his clients are employees he does help small business owners in defending frivolous workplace claims.

He has always been continuously in good standing with every bar, court, and organization he has ever been a member of.

U.S. Supreme Court language:

“Title VII is not a general civility code.” Every employee or plaintiff bears the burden of proof.

Makes some calls to employment lawyers or ones who handle employment discrimination.

Discuss your facts in detail with employment law or discrimination lawyers.

The questions these lawyers ask you should not be ones that just make you feel good.

Have you taken notes?

Do you have employment records you would like reviewed?

Have you already filed written complaints somewhere?

What do you want? Please don’t say “justice”. We’re not sure what that means but we can relate to monetary restitution.

ALL TELEPHONE CONFERENCES REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE TAKE YOUR CASE. WE ALWAYS ASK FOR THE NAME OF YOUR EMPLOYER BECAUSE IF WE REPRESENT OR HAVE REPRESENTED YOUR EMPLOYER THE DISCUSSION STOPS IMMEDIATELY. CONFLICTS OF INTEREST ARE IMPORTANT AND TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
