Wage/Hour Disputes?

An honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work has always been part of the American dream. It is unfortunate that some companies do not understand the value of their employees. If your employer has denied you wages, you need to contact the expert wage and hour attorneys at the Sattiraju Law Firm. We have the knowledge and experience you need to resolve your wage dispute with your employer, whether it is denial of overtime, failure to compensate employees for all hours worked, misclassifying workers as independent contractors, or any number of other tactics employers use to deny their employees what they have rightfully earned.

Harassed at Work?

Few things we deal with can spur anger and humiliation like being harassed. It’s a vile tactic employers and co-workers use to make us feel like less of a human being and you deserve justice for your suffering. Our attorneys are highly skilled in dealing with hostile work environments while understanding what you are going through. Whether you have suffered from sexual harassment, inappropriate touching, verbal harassment, race discrimination, or threats, we will stand with you and help you get compensation.

New Jersey Employment Lawyers

Providing First Rate Representation In NY & NJ

You’re here because you, or someone you love, is having issues at work. On average, we spend over 60% of our lives working, usually for someone else. Sadly, many employers do not meet their most basic legal obligations to their employees, because they believe that they hold all of the power in the relationship. When something goes wrong, is can be hard to stand up and voice disagreement.

We want you to know we are here to help. There are three reasons why Sattiraju Law Firm is the firm to represent your work case:


We have successfully tried all different types of work-related cases, including discrimination cases, whistleblower cases, sexual harassment cases, wage disputes, and more.

We have had great success taking cases from inceptions to victories at trial against large companies represented by major law firms. In 2011, our firm obtained the largest jury verdict in the history of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination. Since then, we have had major successes trying cases in both New York and New Jersey.


For the last several years, our firm has been recognized by the SuperLawyers publication. Mr. Sattiraju is also on the Executive Committee for the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Law Committee. He also frequently writes and lectures on employment related topics. We strive to out-perform ourselves with every case we take on.


We understand the issues you are facing. Our clients are working people who need to support themselves and their families. We understand the emotional and financial losses that our clients face as a result of illegal treatment at the workplace. We develop personal relationships with our clients and are committed to seeing you succeed.

Nothing gives us greater pleasure than seeing our clients overcome their rights being violated.
