Our primary areas of practice include:

Employment Law

We have received numerous honors, awards, and accolades for our work representing employees, and we take pride in our national stature as leading advocates for workers’ rights and workplace fairness.

Mediation & Arbitration

An experienced mediator can be the key to resolving your dispute expeditiously, amicably, and with minimal expense. Joe Garrison and retired Judge Jonathan Silbert bring their nearly 90 combined years of legal experience to bear in their efforts to bring litigants to an agreeable resolution.

Criminal Defense

We regularly provide personalized representation to individuals and businesses subject to federal or state investigations or prosecutions under a broad range of laws and regulations. Our criminal defense partners are former federal or state prosecutors with substantial experience trying jury and court-side criminal trials.

Personal Injury

No injury is small when it happens to you, and it should not be small to your lawyer either. At Garrison, Levin-Epstein, we give you the personal attention you need and deserve. You are not a number – you will not be treated like one.

Client Experiences

My legal battle was one of the hardest and most emotional situations I have ever been in. Steve Fitzgerald's patience and professionalism were impressive given the nature of the situation, but his sincere caring and concern was what really set him apart from most attorneys. Steve is truly an anomaly, and I will be forever grateful to him.

Ethan Levin-Epstein represented me during a most painful and challenging crisis in my personal and professional life. Seeing me within 24 hours of being referred, his support and advocacy, wisdom and clarity not only resulted in a favorable negotiated outcome for me and for my family, but gave me peace of mind and the courage to recover. I am very grateful to have met Ethan and his team and would refer anyone in need to this haven.

Joe Garrison is a true professional and champion for his clients. Although he empathizes with the emotional challenges his clients face during a case, he never takes his eyes off the facts and provides clear, concise direction and counseling in order to attain fair and realistic results. He is a master at setting priorities and knowing exactly when to take action to protect his clients' best interests. Based on my experience, Joe Garrison is the best of the best in his field.

Rob Richardson handled my case professionally, compassionately, and always with me, the client, in mind. He treated me not just as a client, but as a friend that truly needed his expertise. Needless to say, the outcome was good, and I still thank the firm to this day.
I spoke to several attorneys before deciding to have Nina Pirrotti represent me in my case against my former employer. What a wonderful decision. Nina and her staff represented my interests professionally, providing outstanding advocacy and personal attention. Thank you for helping me achieve justice and helping me move on with my life.
