Why employment and business law?
I specifically chose to work in employment and business law because they are the two fields that I strongly can make a difference in. Being an advocate for employees also enables me to advise employers on the right way to conduct business and not violate the law. The two fields of law are really one in the same and a perfect fit for my expertise and skills.
What’s your approach to handling cases?
I think back to a quote from President Teddy Roosevelt that sticks with me: “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” This is how I conduct business. I don’t get into shouting matches with my adversaries because that gets us nowhere. I take a more conservative approach, fighting for my clients’ rights but not getting hot-headed to a point where the other side won’t respect me. I will always confer with a client immediately after speaking with an adversary so they are timely informed of any developments.
Why should someone hire your firm?
You should hire my firm because I will treat them with utmost care and consideration. This is apparent from the moment the client meets me. Clients are comforted by my tone and knowledge, and I treat each client the way they expect to be treated from a professional. I always give my utmost respect and attention to client matters. When someone calls my firm they won’t have to deal with an answering service or secretary reach me, I am the one who promptly answers and returns phone calls. Being a sole practitioner, I strive to make every client have a profitable and enjoyable experience so that he/she will recommend me to others. Effective client service and client etiquette are two goals I constantly strive to achieve.
Why did you become an attorney?
I became an attorney because I want to make a difference in peoples’ lives by helping them when they experience a problem or require my professional expertise to maximize their claim or position in an employment or business matter. Being a lawyer is amazing because it is such an honorable profession. Also, I became a lawyer to further my family’s legacy. My father, Steven Mitchell Sack, of-counsel to this firm, is one of the most respected and knowledgeable employment lawyers for the past 40 years in New York. To be able to work with him and emulate his style of providing top-notch employment law services to those in need is a blessing, and I am up to the task of continuing my father’s legacy.
