Jill Raymond Saluk
In 1992, I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Tulane University. After graduating from Washington University School of Law in 1995, I worked in New York City as an employment litigation associate until moving with my husband and three daughters to Westport in 2002.
In 2015, I returned to practice at Carey & Assoc., where I represent clients in all employment-related matters. I am a member of the New York Bar Association, and I am admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for Connecticut and the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.
My primary aim in each case is to achieve my client’s goal, financial or otherwise, as expeditiously and cost-effectively as possible. I am committed to going the extra mile on behalf of my clients, particularly in situations where they have been treated unfairly by their employers. Too often, employers treat older employees and women with children as if they are somehow less capable. Unfortunately, age and motherhood are generally viewed as liabilities in the workplace. However, in my experience, they have turned out to be essential assets. The time I took away from practice while raising my daughters allowed me to gain advocacy and mediation skills that have proven invaluable to the representation of my clients. Being the mother of three teenage daughters has turned me into an expert negotiator and tireless advocate against even the most formidable opponent.
Among other cases, I currently represent clients with discrimination claims against large corporate employers including Morgan Stanley and Glencore. In addition to my work, I am a member of the National Women’s Law Center, the National Employment Lawyers Association, Me Too Movement and Legal Network for Gender Equality. I also volunteer for the Time’s Up Movement and I am a member of the Westport Democratic Committee.
