Responsive and creative legal advice designed to ensure our clients stay compliant in today’s ever-changing landscape.
Our History and Guiding Principles
Jules Halpern founded the Firm in 2004 with the philosophy of providing practical, competitively priced counsel to clients who could benefit from his corporate legal and human resources background. Paul Scrom joined the Firm in 2013 and became a Partner in 2018, demonstrating his keen knowledge of the intricacies of workplace law, with an innate ability to explain and apply complex legal issues in an understandable fashion.

Workplace and education law exist in climates that have become increasingly compliance-oriented and reputation-sensitive. Thus, our goal is to always be there for our clients, and to provide creative and practical solutions to their individual and organizational needs. As attorneys, we act as facilitators, and we always collaborate internally, providing novel approaches that resonate with our clients. We examine each issue from a business and legal lens, achieving results that advance our clients’ goals, while adhering to compliance standards.

Our collegial atmosphere reflects our even-tempered personalities. We genuinely enjoy the areas of law we practice, and we thoughtfully approach each assignment with a singular focus. We are committed to diversity and our staff consists of individuals of different genders, ancestries, and ethnicities.
