OUR FIRM

Beranbaum Menken LLP was founded in 1998 as an employment law firm, representing all kinds of employees, from blue collar workers to executives, in a whole range of actions, from severance negotiations to sexual harassment and employment discrimination, from whistleblowing to wage theft. We have won impressive court victories and significant jury verdicts in each of these areas. (See tab for Reported Cases on the Home Page). On a more personal level, we are committed to vigorously representing our clients and treating each of them with the care and dignity so often lacking in the workplace.

We are committed to vigorously representing our clients and treating each of them with the care and dignity so often lacking in the workplace.

The five attorneys at Beranbaum Menken LLP all come to the firm with a commitment to using the law in the service of the public good and on behalf of those less privileged or discriminated against. Before starting the firm, John Beranbaum represented unions and was a disabilities rights attorney, while Bruce Menken represented indigent criminal defendants as a public defender in New York City and low income tenants in upstate New York. Jason Rozger was an attorney with the Legal Services Corporation in the Bronx, and Grace Cretcher joined the firm after clerking for U.S. District Judge Timothy S. Black in the Southern District of Ohio. Scott Simpson, the most recent arrival, was Supervising Attorney in the Criminal Defense Practice of the Bronx Defenders.

At Beranbaum Menken LLP, we seek to infuse this commitment to workplace fairness with a rigorous approach to the law – a combination bringing superior results for our clients.
