The opportunity to work free of discrimination and harassment and the ability to earn a decent wage is key to getting ahead. As an employee advocate, I take pride in defending the rights that are intended to protect workers, promote equal opportunity, and help people access the American dream. As business counsel, I relish helping create workplaces and establish policies that bring out the best in employees and allow businesses to thrive.
I am the principal of Dolce Law PLLC, a practice that focuses on representing workers in employment matters and advising businesses on compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws. Prior to starting my law practice, I worked for large law firms both as a transactional attorney and a litigation attorney. I have experience representing both employees and management in employment matters. I have also litigated at non-profit organizations on behalf of low-income New Yorkers, including immigrant survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. I had the opportunity to work as a Human Rights Officer with the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan, the world's newest country. I returned home to defend the human rights of working people in the New York metropolitan area and to help employers create positive and productive workplaces. As a native New Yorker born to Haitian immigrants, I am committed to serving a diverse, multilingual population.
