Urba Law, P.L.L.C.
Urba Law PLLC is a New York Employment Law Reality Check law firm. Jonas Urba opened his first New York office, Urba Law Firm, in 2014. It was incorporated as Urba Law PLLC in 2017. The law practice is solely and exclusively devoted to employment law and employment discrimination matters across New York State.
Employment law has driven Jonas Urba for more than 20 of the 30 plus years he has practiced law. Employment law is much more than litigation. It's the study of people and the organizations they work for.
Federal courts know this. It's the reason why federal employment lawsuits are ordered to be mediated. And most federal judges believe that's a good thing because that results in settlements most of the time. When employment lawyers invest the time to confirm strong facts, conduct extensive research, and draft persuasive initial legal documents those efforts usually pay off. There are no guarantees. But the rewards for work up front can be great. They can also be very disappointing when claims are haphazardly thrown together.
Many of us love litigation. Many of our clients think that litigation is the answer. But the reality check is that most strong employment claims settle. And for those which don't each side has chosen to roll the dice which is sometimes the only option. That's the reality check.
Jonas always suggests contacting many employment lawyers. He believes that if you are going to work with a client for a few months, a year, or longer you will become partners mutually respecting each other's skills, expertise, or advice.
