Biography

After graduating from law school with honors, Orit obtained a Masters of Law (LL.M.) specializing in labor and employment law.  Thereafter, Orit clerked for the Honorable James E. Seibert of the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia where she observed the litigation process through the eyes of the judge.  Upon completion of her clerkship, Orit moved back to New York and practiced labor and employment law with Littler Mendelson, P.C., the largest labor and employment firm in the country.  There, she defended management in labor and employment litigation, counseled companies on labor and employment issues, conducted trainings to prevent harassment and discrimination, and investigated discrimination and harassment complaints.  After several years of honing her skills as a labor and employment attorney for a large management-side law firm, Orit founded The Goldring Firm and opened her practice to include representing employees in labor and employment disputes.   

Orit was an Adjunct Professor of Employment Law at Kean University.
