About Colleen M. Meenan

Colleen is the founder and managing partner of Meenan & Associates, a growing general law practice fostered through insightful legal strategies she has developed in advancing women’s rights for over 28 years. Before practicing law, Colleen was a decorated New York City police officer and through this first-hand experience understands all too well the difficulties women face in the workplace.

Colleen is a well-known for her uncompromising advocacy and has obtained a number of successful employment related jury verdicts for her clients, including in the cases of Elliot v. City of New York, 99-cv-9308 (SDNY)(Mukasey) and Sorrenti v. City of New York, Index 126981/02 (N.Y. Co. Sup. Ct.).

Significant victories she has obtained for clients have been affirmed by the New York State Court of Appeals in the cases of Albunio v. City of New York, 16 N.Y.3d 472 (2011) and Sandiford v. City of New York, 22 N.Y. 3d 914 (2013). These favorable appellate court decisions clarified the interpretation to be applied by the trial courts in analyzing claims of retaliation under the New York City Human Rights Law.

In December of 2015, Colleen testified before the City Council in support of Int. 0814-2015 a proposed amendment to the City’s human rights law, requiring trial courts to correctly interpret the statute and recognize its broad and remedial purposes. This amendment was subsequently passed by the City Council, making the City law one of the most rigorous statutes protecting workers’ rights in the United States.

Colleen is an executive board member of NELA/NY, the local affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA), a national organization for lawyers who promote the workplace rights of individual employees through legislation, education and litigation. NELA/NY was instrumental in advocating before the New York State legislature for 2019 state law changes necessary to offer greater protection for women harassed and mistreated at work. These changes now make it easier for women and others to assert and prove discrimination and harassment claims and obtain larger recoveries.

Colleen is a proud 1991 graduate of the City University of New York Law School at Queens College and admitted to practice law in New York federal and state courts, among other jurisdictions.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
