Mr. Steigman’s practice is dedicated to advancing the rights of employees. He represents clients in all phases of the legal process, from negotiations to litigation in state and federal courts. He began with the firm in 2004, while still in law school. He has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of matters, including whistleblowers and employees who were subjected to retaliation in violation of state and federal laws, such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the First Amendment, as well as individuals who have been harmed by discrimination (disability, gender, age, race, religion), sexual harassment, unequal pay, defamation, wrongful discharge, breach of contract, and violations of the Family Medical Leave Act. Mr. Steigman has also obtained payments from employers who have unlawfully failed to pay overtime or other wages to employees, in violation of state and federal wage laws.
During law school, Mr. Steigman gained experience through internships with the Honorable William I. Garfinkel, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the District of Connecticut, and in the Employee Rights Division of the Office of Attorney General of the State of Connecticut. Todd was selected to the 2015 Connecticut Super Lawyers Rising Stars list, an honor reserved for those lawyers who exhibit excellence in practice.
