    Attorney Profile

    For more than twenty years, Patricia Kakalec has represented employees, and the interests of employees, as a lawyer in both the private and public sectors. Her practice is currently focused on representing employees in wage and hour and discrimination cases, and on advising employees about severance agreements, employment contracts, and other legal issues. 

    Before entering private practice, Tricia served as the Bureau Chief, Deputy Bureau Chief, and Special Counsel of the Labor Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, and as Chair of that office’s statewide Equal Employment Opportunity Committee. Tricia has also been the co-founder and Executive Director of the Workers’ Rights Law Center of New York, and an attorney with Farmworker Legal Services of New York, in both offices representing farmworkers and other low-wage workers around New York State. Tricia began her legal career as an associate with LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae in New York City.

    Tricia received her law degree from Harvard Law School, cum laude, and her undergraduate degree from Duke University.  She clerked for the Hon. Denis R. Hurley in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York and has been a Wasserstein Fellow at Harvard Law School (awarded to “outstanding public interest lawyers”).  She is a member of the Board of Directors of National Employment Law Association – NY and serves, by appointment of the Governor, on the New York State Industrial Board of Appeals.
