Lisa I. Fried-Grodin, Esq.

Meet Lisa Fried-Grodin, Esq.

When things aren’t going well at work, it can affect our sleep, finances and overall well-being. Lisa helps employees and employers in New Jersey and New York overcome these challenges so they can focus on their careers, lives and businesses.

Lisa is passionate about giving employees who have experienced discrimination, harassment and retaliation a voice and an action plan, and for guiding small to mid-sized, growing businesses on the right path. She provides a calm, thoughtful approach and works closely with clients to understand their goals and develop the best strategy for them.

She represents clients in litigation and also provides employment law advice to address situations successfully without litigation, including matters involving discipline and termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, medical and family leaves, whistleblower/retaliation, wage and hour requirements, compensation issues, employee classification issues (exempt and nonexempt employee status and contractor and employee status), employment agreements, separation agreements and workplace policies.

Lisa has been practicing law since 2002, always as an employment attorney.

She is also a mediator on the New Jersey Court system’s mediator roster for employment law, discrimination and whistleblower cases, and also mediates cases as a private mediator.

Prior to starting Fried-Grodin Employment Law, she was a partner at Meyers Fried-Grodin LLP, a firm she co-founded, and where she helped hundreds of clients for 11 years. Earlier in her legal career, she worked as an employment lawyer for Fox Rothschild and Grotta, Glassman & Hoffman. Before becoming an attorney, Lisa was a business journalist and editor writing articles for numerous publications, including the New York Law Journal, The National Law Journal, New York Newsday, the American Management Association’s Management Review, and several trade magazines for the retail, travel and media industries.
