Steven C. Stern is an AV-rated lawyer and founding partner of Sokoloff Stern LLP. He graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1992 and obtained his J.D. from Brooklyn Law School in 1995. He is admitted to practice law before the New York State courts, the United States District Courts for the Southern, Eastern, and Northern Districts of New York, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
Mr. Stern focuses in the areas of civil rights and employment law, having represented scores of school districts and municipalities throughout Long Island, Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, Sullivan, and Ulster counties.
After a few years in private practice, where he litigated a variety of general liability, employment, malpractice, and commercial disputes, Mr. Stern spent five years with the New York City Law Department's Special Federal Litigation Division. As an Assistant Corporation Counsel, he handled some of the City's most high profile Federal civil rights and employment cases. During his tenure there, he was given Senior Counsel status and promoted to supervisor where he oversaw a team of ten attorneys, each with a substantial caseload of civil rights cases, as well as a smaller team of attorneys defending a landmark excessive force class action lawsuit. Mr. Stern was also one of the City's Continuing Legal Education instructors, teaching courses on techniques for conducting effective depositions and the ethical issues pertaining to the representation of municipal officials and employees.
In his current practice, Mr. Stern concentrates primarily in the areas of employment and civil rights defense. He has tried and won several notable cases, including DeLeon v. Putnam Valley Central School District, in which the only African-American teacher in the history of the district sued for race discrimination; the highly-publicized Berrios v. Hampton Bays UFSD, in which a teacher claimed to have been terminated because she was perceived to be a "witch"; and Caruso v. Massapequa UFSD, in which a teacher claimed to have been terminated because of her support of President Bush in the 2004 election.
Mr. Stern continues to lecture in the areas of civil rights and municipal liability to attorneys, insurance companies, police departments, and school districts. He has lectured before the Nassau and Suffolk County Bar Associations, the Federal Bar Council, and is a frequent guest lecturer for adult education programs at Stony Brook University.
