Matthew Scott Porges
I have been admitted to practice law since 2005. In that time, I have represented clients in matters involving employment law, personal injury, landlord-tenant disputes, bankruptcy, civil rights, contract, foreclosure, debt collection, and Constitutional law. I have also represent clients in all aspects of discovery, negotiation, and trial.
I am licensed to practice in all New York state and in most New York federal courts. I have also represented clients before numerous administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights (SDHR), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the New York City Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH), and the New York City Civil Service Commission.
In 2008, I had obtained a verdict in a religious discrimination case against the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. In that case, the jury awarded my client $735,000 in damages. The verdict was reported in an article in the New York Times.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brandeis University in 2000 and a Juris Doctor from New England School of Law in 2004.
