Attorney Steven Mitchell Sack received the 2012 “Leadership in Law” award as Sole Practitioner, presented by Long Island Business News. The awards ceremony took place November 29 at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. Mr. Sack was honored for his devotion to his clients, making him one of Long Island’s strongest leaders in the legal profession.
For over 30 years, Mr. Sack has represented employees, executives and sales personnel to ensure their workplace rights. He also serves as a consultant to clients throughout their employment to help them receive all they deserve.
Mr. Sack, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of SUNY at Stony Brook and Boston College Law School, has offices located in New York City and East Meadow, Long Island, and resides on Long Island. He specializes in employment issues and is the author of The Employee Rights Handbook, which provides employees with information about their rights. As a practicing attorney, Mr. Sack obtained a landmark legal ruling in Samiento v. World Yacht Inc., in which he successfully recovered tips for a group of food service workers who sought a percentage of the service charges imposed by the facility. That 2008 New York Court of Appeals decision has helped prevent restaurants and caterers from keeping gratuities intended for the wait staff.
In addition to his work in the legal profession, Mr. Sack is the author of 19 books, lecturer and syndicated radio host. He is driven to empower the rights of employees and be an advocate for workers, as they navigate the volatile job market and economy.
“I am honored to receive this year’s Long Island Business News’ Leadership in Law Award. I am thrilled that Long Island Business News recognized the dedication and compassion I have for my clients, as well as the passion and respect I have for my field of work. I will remain proficient as I continue to serve as a leader for my community,” Mr. Sack said.
