Stuart Lichten is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was General Editor of the Harvard Civil Rights – Civil Liberties Law Review. He has been practicing labor and employment law since 1990 and has won many difficult cases for employees and unions in court, at arbitration, and at administrative agencies, including the National Labor Relations Board, the New York State Public Employment Relations Board, the New York City Board of Collective Bargaining, the New York City Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings, the New York State Division of Human Rights, and Education Law §3020-a hearings. His victories have resulted in the recovery of millions of dollars for employees who have been wrongfully dismissed, underpaid, or sexually harassed or otherwise mistreated on the job.
While the main focus of Stuart’s practice is in the areas of labor and employment law, Stuart also advises and represents political candidates in election law and campaign finance law matters, has served as treasurer to candidate committees, and has litigated election law disputes before the New York State Board of Elections, as well as in court. Earlier in his career, Stuart practiced criminal defense law, first as an attorney at the Legal Aid Society, and then in private practice. He continues to defend individuals charged with crimes, including union members facing criminal charges arising out of on-the-job activity.
