Zealous New York Employment Discrimination Litigator Matthew Kadushin

Matthew Kadushin is an associate with Joseph & Kirschenbaum LLP. Upon joining the firm in 2009, Matthew was already an experienced litigator who had distinguished himself as an effective and zealous criminal defense attorney and a champion of civil rights.

Matthew began his professional career as an investigator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Housing Enforcement Division, which is primarily responsible for enforcing provisions of the federal Fair Housing Act and investigating allegations of discriminatory rental practices. During law school, he served as a paralegal and then law clerk for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. During the same period, Matthew was also part of the New York University School of Law Death Penalty Clinic, which provides direct legal assistance to death row inmates.

After graduating from New York University School of Law in 2000, Matthew went to work for the Washington, D.C. Public Defender Service, where he litigated numerous high-profile felony cases. He later went on to work for the Bronx Defenders, a public interest organization that provides innovative criminal defense services to people in New York. While there, he was instrumental in creating the Bronx Defenders Trial Practice Institute, which provides training to new lawyers on fundamental trial practice skills.

As an associate with Joseph & Kirschenbaum LLP, Matthew litigates a variety of cases in state and federal court, including workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, whistleblower retaliation, wage and hour claims and Family and Medical Leave Act violations. The investigative and courtroom experience that Matthew gained through nearly 10 years as a criminal defense litigator makes him an invaluable member of our litigation team.
