Jewish News: What is one thing that would surprise people to know about you and your practice?

David Kushner: After generations of Kushners in the rabbinate in Eastern Europe, the last three generations have been attorneys. Despite the fall from grace from the rabbinate into the law, I love my job. I am passionate about helping my clients solve difficult employment issues in an efficient and pragmatic manner.

JN: What are you most proud of as a Jewish lawyer?

DK: I aim to treat my clients’ challenges and opportunities with as much urgency and passion as I would my own. Navigating the minefield of employee relations can create near daily emergencies, and I want my clients to feel confident that I will be available when they need me, and will help them find a solution efficiently and cost-effectively.

JN: Can you describe any recent changes that might be noteworthy?

DK: I recently became chair of Willcox Savage’s labor and employment law Practice Group. I also head up the firm’s Fair Housing and Public Accommodation group.
