I am Thesigan Pillay, Attorney at Law. My law practice is focused on helping people who have suffered illegal discrimination at work – and not all injustice at work is illegal; it must be based on discrimination for your sex, race, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or identity, failure to give sick time. I also bring claims for violations of constitutional civil rights, including police abuses, and select criminal defense matters in New York, including appeals.
I didn’t start out with the plan of being a lawyer. I left a large law firm and learned to love my career, and how to make it work for both me and my clients. I discovered very early on that I liked fighting for all kinds of people who have been wronged. This is what matters to me: I am motivated by obtaining justice.
