Justin D. Burns has represented individuals in employment-related matters since he joined the firm in 2008. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Burns was an Associate at Drinker, Biddle & Reath in Florham Park, New Jersey. Mr. Burns' practice is dedicated to employment litigation. He primarily represents employees in all aspects of employment law, including discrimination, whistle-blowing/retaliation, sexual harassment, breach of employment contracts, non-compete agreements, severance negotiations, unemployment benefits hearings and overtime disputes. Mr. Burns' clients represent all sectors of the workforce, including private and public employees, senior executives to entry level employees, and employees at Fortune 500 corporations to small local companies. Mr. Burns also represents small businesses in proper termination procedures, restrictive covenant enforcement, responding to harassment and discrimination complaints and wage and hour compliance.

Mr. Burns has successfully negotiated countless settlements and enhanced severance packages for employees without resorting to litigation. However, in situations where informal negotiations have broken down, Mr. Burns has participated in the trial, mediation and settlement of several multi-million dollar cases on behalf of aggrieved employees. Mr. Burns has trial experience in both New Jersey state and federal courts.

Mr. Burns is a member of the New York, New Jersey and American Bar Associations, as well as a member of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the New Jersey Bar Association, the Ocean County Bar Association and the Monmouth County Bar Association.
