Gregory Antollino has been practicing civil-rights law since 1993, when he took his first pro bono cases at Weil, Gotshal & Manges, involving Art, Free Speech, and opposition to the Death Penalty. He set up his own small firm in 1995; he practices both civil rights (including employment discrimination and constitutional torts) and legal malpractice. He only represents plaintiffs. Over the course of his career, Gregory has argued over 20 times before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, where he has had affirmed several of his own jury verdicts. He argued once before the New York Court of Appeals, where all seven judges ruled in his favor. His one petition for certiorari to the U.S Supreme Court was noted as “Petition of the Day” on Scotusblog, but cert. was, to his regret, denied.
Greg tries one or two civil cases a year. In 2003, he was invited to attend Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College, a three week intensive course for lawyers to get in touch with themselves as people so as better to understand their clients. He has been noted as a “SuperLawyer” since 2011 and in 2015 was rated AV Pre-eminent by Martindale-Hubbell.
In 2016, Greg attended the intensive Mediation program at the Harvard Law School Program on Negotiation, and hopes to expand his practice to include Alternative Dispute Resolution.
