The Dwyer Law Firm


Lawyers Working for Working People



The Dwyer Law Firm's practice is focused on employment litigation in state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels. Our cases have set precedents in such diverse areas as the protections for whistleblowers, psychiatric exams of discrimination plaintiffs, the compelled arbitration of discrimination claims, punitive damages and the taxation of jury verdicts in employment cases. Our caseload runs the range of employment litigation, including claims for sexual harassment, handicap discrimination, whistleblowing, retaliation and sexual orientation discrimination. We have brought suit against a wide array of employers, including Fortune 500 companies, smaller private employers, hospitals, universities and various government employers.

Litigation is never easy, and is often ill advised. But if you are seriously considering suing your employer, you must remember they will hire the most able, experienced, and aggressive lawyer they can find -- and you should do the same.

In a fight with your employer?


Who's in your corner?

The Dwyer Law Firm is ready to fight for your rights.

Our Mission

Employees who suffer harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination and workplace injury deserve an attorney who will vigorously fight for their rights. Employers who are sued invariably hire high priced lawyers from big firms who aggressively protect their corporate interests. Employees deserve representation that is no less competent or zealous.

The Dwyer Law Firm has exclusively represented the interests of employees against their employers since 1996, with a practice that heavily emphasizes litigation in the trial and appellate courts. We have tried to verdict claims involving discrimination, harassment, retaliation and breach of contract. We have argued cases at all levels of the New Jersey courts, including the New Jersey Supreme Court, and have established important precedents in several areas of employment law.

Our Areas of Practice

Do you believe you have a case? The Dwyer Law Firm practices in the following areas: sexual harassment, employment discrimination, retaliation, accommodation for disabilities, family and medical leave, and employment contracts. If your case falls under these areas, we may be able to help.
