He also served as President of the Fordham Student Sponsored Fellowship, where he was charged with the distribution of hundreds of thousand of dollars in scholarship funds to students to enable them work with not-for-profit organizations. Mr. Haman also co-chaired the LGBT Students' Organization and worked directly with the Dean and administrators to address diversity and issues of discrimination on campus.
While at Fordham Law School, he spent a summer interning for the Honorable Deborah Batts (S.D.N.Y.), and a semester interning for the Honorable Judge Chin, now on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Harman is admitted to the New York State Courts and the United States District Courts for the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, the Northern District of Texas, and the District of Colorado, and is also is admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where he has argued numerous appeals.

After law school Mr. Harman was asked to be the Secretary and then the Co-Chair of the LGBT Committee of the New York City Bar Association.
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 and wage and hour litigation on behalf of employees.
Over the past several years, The Harman Firm has successfully represented employees in dozens of complex wage and hour disputes, including in collective and class actions. We are also proud to have achieved seven-figure resolutions for high-income individuals, including attorneys, bankers, executives and others in professional fields.
