NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Common Council member Matt Miklave (D-District A) may be locked in a tough battle for the Democratic nomination for mayor, but he has won recognition on a national scale for his work as an attorney.
For the fourth year in a row, Miklave has been recognized as one of the top 100 employment lawyers in America by Human Resources Executive magazine, according to a press release from Miklave’s campaign. The feature will be included in an upcoming edition.
The magazine’s feature, “Top 100: Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys,” is compiled from editorial research, client evaluations and peer review by Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based media company providing online content for attorneys and clients across the United States.
“I am truly honored to have been selected by Human Resources Executive and Lawdragon for this award,” Miklave said in the release. “I have worked very hard to conduct myself in an honorable, professional and moral way. That my colleagues and clients have recognized me in this way is truly humbling.”
Miklave is an equity partner in the national law firm of Epstein Becker & Green, and works out of the firm’s New York City and Stamford offices. In 2013, Miklave was the only attorney in the 275-attorney firm to make the list, the release said. He represents employers and management in all areas of civil rights, employment relations, and traditional labor law.
Epstein Becker & Green received a 2012 Gold Standard Certificate from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum, earned a top ranking in the 2012 Human Right’s Campaign Corporate Equality Index and received numerous additional recognitions for its support for women and minority attorneys, the release stated.
