It is with a strong sense of excitement that we announce that Michael P. Tempesta has joined Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP as Of Counsel to our firm.
Mr. Tempesta recently retired from the New York State Court System after 34 years of service. During the last 10 years of his career, Mr. Tempesta was assigned to the Supreme Court Civil Branch, where he served as Senior Settlement Coordinator/Mediator. Throughout his career, Mr. Tempesta was involved in assisting in the settlement of over 8,000 cases, many of which involved employment law. Mr. Tempesta is, therefore, fully familiar with all aspects of civil litigation, including identifying and resolving issues in all aspects of litigation, and has significant experience in evaluating claims. Mr. Tempesta also served as an Administrative Law Judge with the City of New York for approximately 10 years.
We believe Mr. Tempesta's relationship with our firm will add still another dimension to our practice, for which reason we are gratified for our relationship and the promise it holds to enable us to better serve our clients.
