Walker G. Harman, Jr., graduated from the Fordham University School of Law with a J.D. in 1999. He was a member of the Moot Court Board and the Criminal Defense Clinic and an editor of the Environmental Law Journal. He also served as President of the Fordham Student Sponsored Fellowship, where he was charged with the distribution of hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship funds to students to enable them to work with not-for-profit organizations, and co-chaired the LGBT Students Organization, where he worked directly with Fordham’s Dean and other administrators to address diversity and issues of discrimination on campus.
While at Fordham Law School, he spent a summer interning for the Hon. Deborah Batts of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and a semester interning for the Hon. Judge Denny Chin, now on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. After law school, Mr. Harman was asked to be the Secretary and then the Co-Chair of the New York City Bar Association’s LGBT Committee.
In 2003, after several years as an associate with a large international law firm where he specialized in complex commercial litigation, he formed his own practice, The Harman Firm. The Harman Firm focuses almost exclusively on employment law, including discrimination, executive compensation, retaliation, sexual harassment, whistleblower, and wage-and-hour litigation on behalf of employees. Since its foundation, The Harman Firm has successfully represented employees in hundreds of employment discrimination cases and complex wage-and-hour disputes, including collective and class actions, and has achieved seven-figure resolutions for high-income individuals, including attorneys, bankers, executives, and other high-level professionals.
Mr. Harman is admitted to practice in the New York State Courts; the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the Northern District of Texas, and the District of Colorado; and the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where he has argued numerous appeals. He has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law since 2008, teaching lawyering skills as part of Fordham’s clinical program.
