Ms. Hatami is an experienced litigator providing passionate advocacy for her clients. She brings her years of experience to find legal solutions to clients' problems.

At Hofstra Law School, the Hofstra Labor and Employment Law Journal published Ms. Hatami's article, Educating the Masses: Expanding Title VII to Include Sexual Orientation in the Education Arena, and this analysis proved fruitful in the Supreme Court's decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, 140 S. Ct. 1731 (2020). Ms. Hatami interned for Justice Rosalyn Richter (retired from the 2nd Department, Appellate Division), and aided Professor Joanna Grossman in her analysis of marriage laws across the country.

Prior to attending law school at Hofstra University on Long Island, New York, Ms. Hatami graduated with a BA in Political Science from Boston University.  She worked for the University of Texas at Austin for several years and taught Special Education in the Austin Public Schools.  She is originally from Monmouth County, New Jersey, where her practice is now based.

Ms. Hatami has litigated administrative appeals and employment discrimination cases at both the federal and state level. She is adept at defending and preparing motions, trial briefs, depositions and witness testimony, and appellate arguments for her clients. Before opening her own firm, Ms. Hatami represented public union employees in grievance and disciplinary arbitrations for a boutique law firm. She understands and has advocated for both sides of the "v" in litigation.

Ms. Hatami is proud to serve her community with her legal services.  She is President of the Tinton Falls Rotary Club, a member of the Tinton Falls Zoning Board of Adjustment, and serves on her church's Vestry.

Ms. Hatami puts her extensive experience, dedication, and passion to work for her clients.
