“I take the holistic approach to law, being a strong advocate for my clients.” – Ms. Lindy Korn Esq.
The Law Office of Lindy Korn PLLC is a law firm in Buffalo, New York that serves clients in a wide range of legal matters including civil rights law with an emphasis on preventing and correcting illegal employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. The mission of the firm is to assist people facing discrimination at work by restoring workplace relationships or assisting clients in moving to a safer work environment. The Law Office of Lindy Korn PLLC is resolved to listen to clients. They always ask what the client wants to get out of their legal matter successfully. The answer guides the client and the lawyer—as a team —towards a satisfactory result.
Lindy Korn founder of the law firm, is admitted to practice law in the State of New York since 1979. As a civil rights attorney, Lindy has worked to make Western New York workplaces free of abuse of power, when it comes to illegal discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. Knowing from the start the history of the issues from the client’s perspective, the emotional toll the discrimination has caused, the unique workplace challenges, the fear of possible retaliation, and what the client wants to get out of the legal initiative are all explored during an initial consultation.
Lindy’s holistic approach to law focuses on employment matters from a plaintiff’s perspective. She always asks the client what they want out of their case. Some seek an apology, training for an individual supervisor, termination of a management employee, compensation, a chance to tell their side of the story to their employer, or psychological counseling for the alleged harasser, to name a few.
Lindy Korn also is Federal Court Certified Mediator and formerly served as a mediator for the Key Bridge Foundation performing mediations concerning issues of accessibility for the Justice Department. She mediates employment disputes on behalf of a client in order to keep the conflict at hand confidential. Allowing the client to have control over the resolution process involving their workplace harassment and retaliation not only resolves the problem but also addresses it in a confidential, discrete manner, which better allows the employee to more effectively move forward with their lives.
A Boston University undergraduate alumnus, Lindy earned her law degree from the Ohio Northern University School of Law in 1979. In 1981, Lindy was the first woman to run for Town Justice in the Town of Amherst. In 1990, Governor Cuomo appointed Lindy to become a Commissioner for the Workers’ Compensation Board for the State of New York. In 1997, Korn started Diversity Training-Workplace Solutions, Inc., an anti-discrimination and retaliation consulting firm, and trained companies throughout the United States to prevent discrimination and hostile environments in the workplace.
Currently, Lindy is a columnist for the Buffalo Law Journal, The Daily Record, and the Buffalo Jewish Review covering current workplace trends. Lindy is a SUNY Buffalo Law School adjunct professor and teaches sexual harassment mediation as a Bridge Course. She has taught at the Cornell School of Labor Relations in the area of Workers’ Compensation and SUNY Buffalo School of Architecture and Urban Planning School in the area of conflict resolution. She is a proud member of the National Employment Lawyers Association, Erie County Bar Association, and the Erie County Minority Bar Association.
Lindy is the proud mother of two daughters, Emily and Leslie, and has a dog named Sigmund. Her avocations include playing cribbage, walking, photography, and looking for reasons to laugh.
