Joshua M. Friedman is a New York City employment attorney at Phillips & Associates and an advocate for employees wronged by their employers. He graduated from Bentley University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Finance in 2009. He graduated from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center with a Juris Doctor in May 2012. He is admitted to the New York Bar and Massachusetts Bar, and is also admitted in the Eastern and Southern District Courts of New York.
Joshua started his career working at an employment litigation firm representing federal government employees in employment related disputes. Prior to joining Phillips and Associates Joshua also served as Senior Counsel for the New York City Law Department, where he resolved over 80 federal actions and tried four cases to verdict. Joshua has extensive appearance appearing in federal courts of the Southern and Eastern District of New York through all phases of discovery, motion practice, and trial.
Joshua’s practice focuses on employment related disputes including discrimination in the workplace. Discrimination occurs when an adverse employment decision is made based on an employee’s membership in a protected class, rather than his or her qualifications and experience. For example, if you are qualified but have been repeatedly passed over for a promotion to a management level position because you are a woman, since your boss does not think that women are appropriate for leadership roles, you may have a claim of sex discrimination.
