Summary

Matthew Weinick is a Long Island employment lawyer. Since the beginning of his career, Matt has been fighting for his clients’ workplace rights before Federal and State Court judges and administrative law judges. He has tried employment discrimination and retaliation cases before juries in Federal Court, represents clients at mediation and arbitration, and has argued appeals before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the New York Appellate Divisions, First and Second Departments. Matt’s success has been recognized for five consecutive years by Super Lawyers Magazine which listed him as a Rising Star from 2012-2016, a recognition reserved for less than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state. In addition to serving his clients, Matt serves the legal community, as well. He has published articles in the Nassau County Bar Association’s newspaper about changes in employment law, he has taught a continuing legal education class about the essentials of employment law, and he instructed a law school class entitled “Foundational Lawyering Skills,” which taught trial advocacy skills to second year Hofstra Law School students. In 2016, Hofstra Law appointed Matt as a Guest Lecturer. Matt is frequently called upon by other lawyers for strategic or legal advice and he was hired by another law firm specifically to argue an appeal at the Appellate Division, Second Department. Before partnering with Pete, Matt was a senior associate at a preeminent Long Island employment discrimination firm where he was trusted with his own caseload and was frequently assigned to work on the firm’s most complex matters. Matt also served as a Nassau County Deputy County Attorney, representing the County and its employees in civil rights actions. Matt graduated cum laude from Hofstra University School of Law. At Hofstra, Matt served as Notes and Comments Editor of the Hofstra Labor and Employment Law Journal and published an article about workers’ rights.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Will the jury pool in the Eastern District of New York be diverse if the employment complaint was filed in Brooklyn?
A: What happens in any particular pool is random, but the Brooklyn courthouse can receive jurors from the entire geographic area covered by the Eastern District's jurisdiction, meaning jurors could come from Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, and Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Q. How long will the process take to resolve an employment discrimination lawsuit in Brooklyn, Eastern District of New York
A: The answer to this question depends on many factors including the judge assigned, the complexity of your case, how much discovery (depositions and documents) you and your adversary are seeking and whether you or your adversary make motions which the judge will have to decide and which may result in dismissing the case at some point before trial. However, generally speaking, judges in the Eastern District of New York will set cases on a six to nine month discovery schedule. After discovery, and again depending on any pre-trial motions that must be decided, the judge will schedule the trial for the earliest possible time. Depending on the parties' and court's schedule, that may mean the trial is not scheduled for many months. However, resolution can also mean settlement. A settlement can take place at any time during the course of a litigation.
