I am honored to offer this review on behalf of Paul Liggieri, a great colleague, friend, and someone I now consider family. For background purposes, I was a NYC Police Officer and first responder to the World Trade Center emergency. Following the events of September 11, 2001, I became a NYC Firefighter until I retired in 2006. I am currently an attorney licensed to practice law in New York, New Jersey and Florida actively practicing in many areas of the law in the these jurisdictions. I had the privilege of coming to know Paul in 2011 while attending Hofstra University School of Law. From the outset, I was impressed by Paul’s work ethic, integrity, and professionalism; which made him an asset to the student body at Hofstra law. Paul and I immediately forged a bond because Paul possessed many of the same traits that I have, traits that helped me navigate through some of the best and worst things life had to offer amidst the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Since our respective admissions to practice law, Paul and I frequently consult each other on complex legal matters that may arise during our practice of law. Together we collaborate on various legal principles with the goal of providing sound legal advice to clients. I have personally witnessed Paul’s passion to relentlessly pursue justice for his clients, whether it be fighting discrimination on behalf of an injured party or defending the constitutional rights of a client in dire need of sound criminal defense. The outcome is always the same; the client immensely benefits from the representation of Paul, no matter how serious the legal matter. Paul’s skill, dedication and experience is what prompted me to write this review; so much so that if the time ever arises that I need legal services that he offers for myself, close family and friends, I would not hesitate to look to Paul. #BetterCallPaul. Joseph M. Cammarata, Esq.

Had an amazing experience. It was my first legal matter and felt a bit uncomfortable at the beginning but Abe Melamed insured me that I had nothing to worry or be nervous about. He was always there to answer any questions and concerns. He was very professional yet down to earth at the same time. His talent for law is displayed not only in convention as he discusses your case with you but in the court room. He managed to get me a better result than even I thought possible. If you are having any kind of employment or discrimination troubles, Abe Melamed is the guy for you.
Paul Liggieri is a hidden gem in the legal community. I heard about Paul from a colleague and referred him to my cousin. Needless to say the employment discrimination matter was resolved quickly, sympathetically, and fairly. It is hard to find an attorney who will treat each client like they are the only ones in their workload but that was exactly her experience. When it comes to discrimination law I am happy to recommend Paul Liggieri and the expertise of the Derek Smith Law Group to anyone seeking justice.
Paul Liggieri handled my case with incredible professionalism, personality and urgency. When we first began my case, I was uncertain of the outcome. From the very first consultation, Paul put me at ease and continued to do so throughout the entire process. He would check in with me on weekends just to see how I was holding up. Additionally, Paul represented me and my interests with fierce enthusiasm. I would highly recommend Paul and the Derek Smith Law Group.
Words cannot express my gratitude towards the entire Derek Smith Law Group. Derek and Abe helped me get through a very difficult and trying experience; assuring me that justice will prevail, in which it most certainly did. Abe possess a great deal of both professionalism, as well as empathy and truly gives it his all. I highly recommended Abe and the entire Derek Smith Law Group for any legal counsel you are seeking, regardless of what it may be.
Abe Melamed is an excellent attorney whom I cannot recommend highly enough. While his legal services were not related to discrimination at the time they were provided to me (ie. at his last firm), I know Abe well and I am sure his legal services with regards to discrimination are phenomenal. There are few attorneys I would trust as Abe and I encourage you to seek his services should you need an attorney specializing in discrimination law.
