With a Team of Lawyers in three states, Derek T. Smith has obtained numerous multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of his clients. In fact, he and his law firm have obtained four (4) multi-million dollar verdicts in just the last four (4) years. Derek Smith is also proud to have obtained the largest employment discrimination jury verdict ever to have been sustained on appeal in New York. There is absolutely no fee unless we recover and a consultation is always free and encouraged. If you are looking for a sexual harassment or discrimination lawyer, look no further. Derek Smith has the million dollar jury verdicts to back up and support his negotiations for a great settlement for you. If you are looking at other lawyers, make sure to ask them how many jury verdicts they have under their belt, let alone multi-million dollar ones. You cannot pick the facts of your case, but you certainly can pick the best lawyer to represent you: One who knows the law . . . One who knows how to negotiate . . . and One who has the experience to take the employer all the way to a jury verdict if necessary. Derek Smith has settled literally thousands of cases in his years of practice and his negotiation skills are top notch. We always try to first settle cases confidentially and only if unsuccessful do we continue down the road of litigation.

Derek Smith believes in becoming partners with his clients and work together with them to make the absolute best decisions for the case.
