Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP

The Founders of Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP came together in 2006 to create a very special boutique law firm. The firm specializes in the representation of plaintiffs in the areas of whistleblower law, employment law, sexual harassment law, and civil rights and civil liberties matters. Our clients rely on us for our legal expertise and skill, innovative thinking, responsive and individualized service, and zealous advocacy. They know that we are solution-oriented and effective in our representation of clients, from the most straightforward to the most complex client matters. We have been consistently recognized as leading whistleblower and employment lawyers nationally and in the Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New Jersey areas.

What sets us apart from other firms is not only our deep commitment to workplace and civil rights, but our broad range of collective experience and our creative yet practical problem-solving approach. We are always mindful of the unique aspects of every case and each client's individual needs.

We understand that the violation of your legal rights and being in conflict with powerful organizations can be intensely stressful. Our attorneys embrace their role as trusted advisers while working towards resolution of these sensitive matters. We pride ourselves on our ability to combine a compassionate approach with unflagging advocacy on our clients' behalf -- at the negotiating table and in the courtroom. Our work is our passion, and we are honored to help vindicate crucial rights to fairness, equality, and justice.
