MICHAEL P. TEMPESTA JOINS Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP AS OF COUNSEL
FEBRUARY 4, 2008
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.
