Samuel Leonard Drukman, Esq., is an experienced litigator and legal counselor practicing primarily in the areas of Education Law, Labor and Employment Law and Workers’ Compensation Defense, as well as general and commercial litigation.
Prior to opening his own practice, Sam Drukman had worked for almost a decade at one of New York metro area’s established boutique law firms dedicated almost entirely to litigation. There, Sam was involved directly in all phases of labor, civil rights, commercial, and consumer litigation in Federal and State courts, representation of businesses and employers before the Workers’ Compensation Board, as well as appellate work, licensing, and regulatory agency proceedings. One of the decisions in a case argued by Sam before the Appellate Division Second Department had been published in New York Jurisprudence, 2d Edition. Sam had received open praise from a New York State trial court judge for his superior preparation and presentation skills.
Sam’s practice has also been characterized by passion and commitment to education issues facing students with special needs and their families. From helping families navigate the often complex process of having a child “classified” as eligible to receive necessary and appropriate special education services, to pursuing legal remedies on behalf of students suffering psychological or physical injuries as a result of bullying or neglect in public schools, Sam Drukman has been a knowledgeable and compassionate advocate for children in the New York City metro area. Teachers and college students facing disciplinary charges up to and including termination or expulsion have also turned to Sam Drukman for experienced legal counsel and representation in challenging situations.
