“In employment and discrimination cases, truth is stranger than fiction,” says Sheila O’Shea-Criscione, Esq., a nearly thirty-year veteran of employment law. Believing that people deserve to be heard is the hallmark of Carcich O’Shea. “People come to us with flagrantly discriminatory circumstances, and we meet them with compassionate listening and zealous advocacy.” On Bergen Magazine’s Top Lawyer list since 2012, Sheila specializes in employment law, including sexual harassment, discrimination, and whistleblowing to general litigation, negotiation, and review of severance packages. Together with her partners, Christopher Carcich and Ellen Marie Walsh, the firm covers virtually every aspect of employment law.
Sheila loves helping people. Personal attention, tenacity, dedication and experience are at the core of her everyday mantra—a mantra that extends outside her time at the office. At Montclair State University, she’s been sharing her wealth of knowledge and perspective as an adjunct professor since 1993 and is an active participant in numerous legal associations. Representing both plaintiffs and small businesses has made her an extremely well-rounded client advocate. Sheila works with small businesses to develop proactive guidelines and keep their workplaces free from discrimination and retaliation. She is also a trained workplace investigator, provides anti-discrimination and sensitivity training, and drafts discrimination and other policies for corporate and small business clients.
