Berke-Weiss Law Celebrates International Women's Day with a Favorable Jury Verdict

International Women’s Day is a day to acknowledge and honor women everywhere for their countless achievements now and throughout history. We at Berke-Weiss Law have had the pleasure of supporting so many strong female clients who have stood up for themselves and fought for their rights in the workplace, and celebrate them on this International Women’s Day.

We are especially excited to highlight our client Kyndra Frazier who received a favorable jury verdict in her case after a three-day trial at the New York Southern District Courthouse. On February 22, 2024, the jury decided in the Plaintiff’s favor that she was owed wages from her employer who had not paid her. We are so proud of all the hard work that Senior Associate Alex Berke and Associate Kate Burns put into this case and congratulate them on securing a favorable outcome.
