Hello, and welcome. I’m Mike Pospis, the the founding member and owner of Pospis Law, PLLC.

mike-pospis

I have dedicated my career to representing plaintiffs in Employment Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Personal Injury cases and to obtaining compensation for victims.

I have represented clients in state and federal courts and in agencies (including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New York City Commission on Human Rights).

My pre-legal working life is diverse. Beginning at about age 11, I have had many different types of jobs in many environments. These include delivering papers, delivering food, waiting tables, stocking shelves, mowing lawns, shoveling snow, surveying property, making photocopies, reviewing/updating marketing materials, and other “office” jobs. This “ground level” experience in, and view of, the American workplace has enabled me to understand, at a human level, what my employment law clients are experiencing. Also, when evaluating technical issues in personal injury cases, I call upon my engineering background.

In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a human being who enjoys (among other things) exploring New York City, traveling, SCUBA/wreck diving, reading, video gaming, hiking, biking, and writing.
