Since 1979, Nassau County employment law attorney Richard V. Rappaport has been resolving employment law matters for clients throughout New York and Long Island as well as along the North Shore.

Mr. Rappaport became interested in labor and employment law early in his career, while working as a teacher. He uses those teaching skills to carefully explain the case settlement process to his clients and to prove his clients' cases in court. He has successfully argued before the New York State Court of Appeals, and the decision in one of his cases resulted in a change to the state law which is still in effect today. In addition to maintaining a busy law practice, he has appeared on radio and TV shows, has written articles for various publications and has presented at various legal seminars and professional events.

Mr. Rappaport is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association, the Suffolk County Bar Association and the Queens County Bar Association. He is a committee member of various committees and has chaired the Labor and Employment Committee of the Suffolk County Bar Association. He continues to be an active member. He is also a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association and the New York State Bar Association.
