Biography


THE LAW OFFICES OF LARRY J. STEIN, LLC





Our Firm represents federal, state and local government employees in administrative actions regarding their employment, focusing on claims of discrimination and retaliation or reprisal. The primary work we perform is representing government employees in all types of discrimination, harassment and defending against disciplinary actions. Attorneys in our Firm often have appeared before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Merit Systems Protection Board, where we represent individuals nation-wide. Recent representation services have involved the resolution of requests for reasonable accommodations, performance improvement plans, and other employment disputes. Our Firm in addition has represented employees in the private sector in their claims of discrimination and retaliation. We also negotiate private sector employment and severance agreements, including non-compete clauses.






Larry J. Stein has been principal attorney in The Law Offices of Larry J. Stein, LLC, since its inception in January 2006, specializing in Federal Employment and Labor Law, including Employment Discrimination, Disciplinary Actions, Negotiation of Reasonable Accommodations under the ADA and Rehabilitation Act, Disability Discrimination, Retaliation Claims, Whistleblower Claims, and Sexual Harassment cases. Mr. Stein has extensive experience practicing before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Merit Systems Protection Board, as well as in federal district and appellate courts throughout the United States. In his work representing employees in the private sector, Mr. Stein specializes in the analysis and negotiation of Employment Agreements and Severance Contracts, focusing on non-compete clauses.






Mr. Stein is a former Senior Counsel in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's Litigation Division, U.S. Treasury Department, where he concentrated on employment and labor law matters in federal appellate, district court and administrative litigation, including highly complex employment and banking law cases. He was a Federal Government attorney for over 30 years. Mr. Stein’s extensive experience as Agency counsel, while in the Federal Government, is responsible in large part for his record of success in negotiating a long list of favorable settlements since he entered the private practice of law in 2006. As the cost of administrative litigation before the EEOC and MSPB can be quite high, the ability to negotiate favorable settlements is invaluable, and essential.

      I was referred to Larry J. Stein, Esquire, by an attorney who had been his boss. Mr. Stein greatly exceeded my expectations. He was outstanding in the hearing for my Workers Compensation case. We won this case. In my Equal Employment Opportunity and Equal Pay Act discrimination court cases, he was superb. All of these cases ended successfully to my satisfaction.
      Mr. Stein was very knowledgeable, always well prepared and hard working. He had a very calming and reassuring demeanor, but he came off as a “Bull Dog” when it was necessary. It made me feel comfortable and confident that I had a true “Champion” defending me. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Stein to anyone who needed legal representation. Thank you, Larry for being in my corner. Read less
