Robert J. Baror practices primarily in the area of employment litigation, handling cases involving the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. Additionally, he has significant health care experience in handling physician employment agreements, recruitment deals, and compensation issues, as well as representing hospitals in False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Statute matters. 

In addition to his legal career, Mr. Baror has worked as a political consultant, designing communications programs for political candidates, labor unions, and institutional clients, and he served as a communications coordinator for the New York State Senate and a major political party in Buffalo, New York.

Mr. Baror graduated cum laude from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he was a member of the Cardozo Law Review and the Student Senate. While at Cardozo, he served as an Alexander Fellow for Judge William H. Walls of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and participated in Cardozo's renowned Intensive Trial Advocacy Program. Mr. Baror is a cum laude graduate of Harvard University, where he majored in Government. He is a member of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association, American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, American Constitution Society, and the New York State Bar Association.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

I represented a consultant with a non-compete provision who was being sued by his former employer for an alleged breach of his covenant not to compete with regard to the new job he had taken. After aggressively litigating the case, we were able to get his former employer to relent and allow him to remain in his position with his new employer without further litigation.

How did you build a successful practice?

I have built a successful practice by always putting the client first and by giving clients a completely frank analysis of their case, the ups and the downs. Ultimately, the case belongs to the client, not the lawyer. It is the lawyer's job to educate clients so that they can make the decisions, about settlement or trial, which are in their best interests. I do my best to make clients comfortable through an uncomfortable process, and let them know that they always have me as an advocate in their corner when times get tough.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Clients should look for a lawyer who will tell them the truth. Sometimes the best advice a lawyer can give is to tell prospective clients that they don't have a case---this will save them both money and heartache. Once a lawyer takes your case, make sure that they are always thoughtful and balanced in their analysis. Any lawyer who just tells you what you want to hear is not doing you any favors. You need to know the strengths and inevitable weaknesses of your case. Clients should also look for lawyers who are thoughtful---the quick answer is usually not the best answer. Make sure your lawyers are thoroughly researching and analyzing your case, and not just giving you stock responses.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Local knowledge is very important. I practice primarily in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and New York. Being familiar with the judges, the local rules, and the customs of the courthouse gives you a great edge in litigation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

I believe that my passion for employment law separates me from other lawyers. I do not view my practice as merely a job. I love acting as an advocate and counselor, whether that means helping an entrepreneur navigate the maze of federal overtime regulations or fighting on behalf of the victims of sex harassment. I believe that the love I have for my practice and the law distinguishes me and makes me a better lawyer.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping clients to resolve their problems successfully. Sometimes that happens in the courtroom, sometimes it is through getting cases dismissed through motions practices, and sometimes it is in the conference room at a mediation. But, however we get there, I want to solve my client's problems and have them move on with their lives.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

Outside of the law, I am a passionate baseball fan and have been rooting for the New York Mets since the age of 5. I also enjoy spending time near the water and with family, which is my priority.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Don’t Leave Home Without (Plenty) Of It
While most people know that they must carry liability insurance coverage in California or risk losing their driving privilege, few people realize that while liability insurance protects you in cases where you are at fault, it provides you no benefit where, as is often the case, you are the victim of somebody’s else’s negligence. The coverage that will provide you with invaluable protection and in an amount you choose to purchase, is Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.
Insurance Companies In the Driver’s Seat: How to Level the Playing Field And Improve Your Chances Of Recovering The Damages To Which You Are Entitled
In years past people injured in accidents could rely on insurance companies making reasonable offers for the losses they sustained. As the saying goes, those days are gone! In the last few years the long standing rights of injured people to receive fair compensation for their losses including compensation for their medical expenses, loss of earnings and for the pain and suffering they experienced have been severely limited by our Courts and a series of decisions that have diminished the rights of victims and emboldened the insurance companies to make offers of settlement that are not merely inadequate but often insulting.
Preserving Evidence After An Accident
When accidents occur the first consideration, after insuring that the injured are given appropriate care and medical attention, should be the preservation of accident scene details that may one day become critical in determining the rights of the victims. While it would be nice to know that those who cause accidents are honest, caring individuals who want to own up to their responsibilities and insure that those they hurt are properly compensated, most, even those who may admit fault at the scene, turn out to be anything but truthful after they speak with their insurance company or the lawyers they hire. Regrettably, and with ever increasing frequency, insurance companies persuade their insured’s to not admit anything but rather to consider their future insurance premiums when making statements or giving their depositions. Similarly, the lawyers hired by the insurance companies, especially those who are employed as “house counsel” are all too often more interested in saving their employer/insurance company money and less interested in seeing justice done or the having the truth come out.
