Lawyers With Experience Handling LGBT Legal Issues

At Bashian & Farber, LLP, we recognize that while great strides have been made in advancing the legal rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, numerous challenges still remain for our clients who identify as LGBT. With that understanding, our attorneys vigilantly remain updated on changes in the local, state and federal laws that impact our LGBT clientele and utilize that knowledge to effectively protect our clients' legal interests. Moreover, our firm's dedication to the LGBT community is demonstrated by our attorneys' participation in LeGal — The LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York, the Diversity Committee of the Westchester County Bar Association, as facilitators in the Lambda Peer Support Services, Inc., through membership on the Board of Directors of the LOFT Lower Hudson Valley's LGBT Community Center, and through legal seminars regularly conducted for numerous LGBT organizations throughout the New York City/Hudson Valley area.

We are ready to bring our experience to help you establish your rights while working through any LGBT legal issues. As all such matters are unique, we provide personalized attention to your claim while paying close attention to every detail.
