Biography:  
Larry J. Stein has been principal attorney in The Law Offices of Larry J. Stein, LLC, since its inception in January 2006, specializing in Federal Employment and Labor Law, including Employment Discrimination, Disciplinary Actions, Negotiation of Reasonable Accommodations under the ADA and Rehabilitation Act, Disability Discrimination, Retaliation Claims, Whistleblower Claims, and Sexual Harassment cases.  Mr. Stein has extensive experience practicing before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Merit Systems Protection Board, as well as in federal district and appellate courts throughout the United States.  In his work representing employees in the private sector, Mr. Stein specializes in the analysis and negotiation of Employment Agreements and Severance Contracts, focusing on non-compete clauses.

Mr. Stein is a former Senior Counsel in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s Litigation Division, U.S. Treasury Department, where he concentrated on employment and labor law matters in federal appellate, district court and administrative litigation, including highly complex employment and banking law cases.  He was a Federal Government attorney for over 30 years.  Mr. Stein’s extensive experience as Agency counsel, while in the Federal Government, is responsible in large part for his record of success in negotiating a long list of favorable settlements since he entered the private practice of law in 2006.  As the cost of administrative litigation before the EEOC and MSPB can be quite high, the ability to negotiate favorable settlements is invaluable, and essential.
