Geoffrey Kalender is an Associate Attorney at Slater Slater Schulman with a successful background in employment law. Geoffrey frequently handles matters involving worker pay, employee misclassification, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Geoffrey is a tenacious advocate who begins every case deciphering the exact contours of his client’s concerns, never pigeonholing a case into a preconceived direction. Through empathic listening and responsiveness, Geoffrey empowers his clients every step of the way. He understands the obstacles working individuals and families face, and works to secure a favorable result to get them back on their feet.
Geoffrey began his legal career working as in-house counsel at a financial technology firm—where he negotiated contracts for international data transfers with institutional banks. He also worked on the Journal of Law and Cyber Warfare throughout law school; following graduation, Geoffrey continued to regularly edit articles and organize symposia. Because Geoffrey ultimately found a true passion in litigating on behalf of individuals rather than corporations, he left his in-house role to practice employment law.
Prior to moving to New York City, Geoffrey served as a neighborhood representative in Kansas City, Missouri where he frequently advocated for his neighbors and against developers who violated land use laws.
Geoffrey graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in Business from the University of Kansas. He obtained his J.D. with a certificate in Data Law from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where each semester he was the recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship. Geoffrey is licensed to practice law in New York, Missouri, and Kansas. He joined the Slater Slater Schulman team in October 2022.
