Eric S. Tilton, P.L.L.C. - Long Island Employment Lawyer
Eric S. Tilton, Counselor at Law
I am a 2006 graduate of Hofstra University School of Law where I served as an Associate Editor on the Hofstra Law Review, a publication in which my Note was selected among a competitive group for publication, and was entitled “Business Necessity and Hostile Work Environment: An Evolutionary Step Forward for Title VII.” During my time at Hofstra, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to intern for the Honorable Sandra J. Feuerstein, United States District Judge in the Eastern District of New York.
Prior to forming Eric S. Tilton, P.L.L.C. in 2009, I was an associate at a well-known civil rights and employment discrimination firm in Nassau County, New York.
I reside in Suffolk County, New York, with my wife (and our two dogs), and enjoy her support in all of my endeavors. As a well-grounded, native Long-Islander, I am keenly aware of the needs of local businesses and employees residing on Long Island and in the New York metropolitan area, enabling me to often service my clients more efficiently and effectively than some of the "big city" firms, which often shuffle the client around from attorney to attorney with little consistency throughout the course of the representation. At my firm, however, you will be dealing directly with me on a regular basis.
I am currently admitted to practice before all of the courts in New York State, the United States Supreme Court, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and the local federal courts in our area, including the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York.
I am also a member of the Suffolk County Bar Associations, serving on the Employment Law and Animal Law committees. In the past, I was a cooperating attorney with the New York Civil Liberties Union (our local branch of the ACLU), and was a planning committee member for an employment law symposium which took place at Adelphi University, hosted by the Freeport Branch of the NAACP.
