AREAS OF PRACTICE
PRIVATE SECTOR EMPLOYMENT LAW & CIVIL RIGHTS LITIGATION
Attorney Fallon regularly represents employees and applicants for employment of private sector employers (i.e., non-government) in a wide range of matters, including claims of retaliation, discrimination, unlawful harassment, wrongful termination, claims of disparate pay, wage and hour claims (i.e., claims for unpaid wages), litigating claims under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), litigating claims involving restrictive covenants, and negotiating compensation, severance, and benefits packages for employees and high-level executives. David has substantial experience practicing before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights (DHR), and litigating employment claims in Federal District Court. David has forged a reputation as knowledgeable, sharp, and aggressive litigator who is able to achieve results. David also recognizes that no two cases and no two clients are identical. David works to craft a unique litigation strategy in every case that appropriately takes into account the strength of the case, the goals sought, and the client's tolerance for risk.
FEDERAL SECTOR EMPLOYMENT LAW
The employment rights of federal employees are vastly different from the rights of employees in the private sector, and you should retain an attorney who is familiar with those differences so that your interests can be aggressively protected. If you are a federal employee and have been discriminated against, retaliated against, or are facing possible disciplinary action, we can help. Attorney Fallon has successfully represented hundreds of federal employees in cases ranging from disciplinary replies, appeals to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), discrimination complaints before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), reprisal and disclosure complaints to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), and disciplinary hearings before the Department of Veterans Affairs Disciplinary Appeals Board (DAB). David also represents and counsels federal employees through command directed investigations (CDIs) and other federal workplace investigations involving allegations of on-duty and off-duty misconduct. Many times, a knowledgeable and appropriately aggressive attorney can navigate an effective resolution before a particular situation becomes untenable. Where appropriate, David will not hesitate to litigate a case through a hearing or trial. David has served as lead counsel on a number of cases that have resulted in six figure recoveries for his federal employment clients following hearing or through a negotiated resolution. He has also prevailed against the federal government in a landmark military discrimination case before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
CIVIL LITIGATION IN STATE AND FEDERAL COURT
Attorney Fallon has substantial experience in State and Federal Court representing both individuals and businesses, and handles a range of matters, including negligence, consumer rights, breach of contract, real property disputes, construction litigation, mechanics lien litigation, business and commercial litigation, and appeals. David litigates cases aggressively, crafting sophisticated and effective litigation strategies to protect the legal interests and reputations of his clients.
LANDLORD TENANT LAW
David has substantial experience representing both landlords and tenants in summary eviction proceedings in the city and village courts. Experience, knowledge, and attention to detail are paramount when it comes to landlord-tenant proceedings. There are strict and specific rules governing when and how evictions can occur. Whether a landlord has one tenant or several hundred, David understands the importance of not only effective representation in the courtroom but also ensuring his clients are educated so that they remain legally compliant in the face of changing laws governing the landlord-tenant relationship.
VEHICLE AND TRAFFIC LAW
Getting a speeding ticket or other traffic ticket can be an extremely stressful experience. It often means monetary fines, additional points on your license, and increased insurance premiums. It is our goal to reduce any potential fines, eliminate or lower any points, and avoid having our clients appear in court.
PERSONAL INJURY LAW
If you are injured as a result of another individual or company's intentional actions, negligence, or in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our goal in such cases is to obtain the highest possible compensation for our clients, either by settlement or lawsuit.
BANKRUPTCY AND CONSUMER RIGHTS
A bankruptcy filing under Chapter 7 or 13 of the Bankruptcy Code can, in many instances, give an individual a fresh start and relief from the crushing weight of relentless creditor phone calls and insurmountable debt. A good bankruptcy lawyer can ensure that your legal rights are protected, and we will undertake a thorough evaluation of your income, assets, and liabilities (debts) to provide you with your best options for having those debts forgiven so that you can truly obtain a fresh start.
