    About Ezra

    Clients rely on Ezra for the defense of employment-related claims in courts, administrative agencies, and arbitrations encompassing a variety of issues, including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the National Labor Relations Act.  He also offers in-depth knowledge and advice regarding restrictive covenants, trade secret infringement and tort actions.

    Ezra has earned a reputation for his relentless preparation and deep knowledge of the procedural and evidentiary rules in the states of New Jersey and New York, as well as the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Eastern District of New York, and the District of New Jersey. Prior to joining the firm, he worked at an AM 200 law firm and was routinely relied upon by our firm to serve as local counsel in the state of New Jersey for many years.

    Ezra grew up in central New Jersey.  Ezra graduated from Yeshiva University, cum laude, with a B.A. in history.  He then earned his J.D. with a focus on Labor & Employment Law from Seton Hall University School of Law, where he was the recipient of multiple scholarships for L&E and was awarded Best Oral Advocate in Appellate Advocacy.  In his spare time, Ezra enjoys playing tennis and chess, spending time with his wife and two daughters, and rooting for the Atlanta Braves and New York Jets.
