Patrick (Pat) Almonrode has spent years litigating tirelessly to protect his clients’ rights. After a successful career as a visual artist, he attended Fordham University School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate with cum laude honors. He later clerked for Barbara S. Jones, a judge of the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York.
Mr. Almonrode has experience in general commercial litigation, having worked at two mid-size New York firms. He also has experience in civil rights litigation: immediately before joining our firm, he served as a staff attorney at Children’s Rights, where he helped litigate several large class action lawsuits on behalf of abused and neglected foster children. He’s accustomed to fighting – and winning – for seemingly powerless clients, against seemingly overwhelming odds.
Mr. Almonrode is a member of the New York Bar and the Federal District Courts of the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the District of Colorado. He is also a member of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and the New York County Lawyers Association. Pat focuses on wage and hour class and collective actions, and on “whistleblower” lawsuits on behalf of individuals reporting fraud on the government. He approaches all of his cases – big and small – with diligence, care, and a passion for justice.
