About the Presenters:
Paul F. Keneally, Esq., Partner at Underberg & Kessler. Strategist and diplomat. Advocate and persuader. Formidable opponent, trusted friend. Paul's effectiveness as a litigator is due to his depth of legal understanding and his determination to get clients the right result. As chair of the Firm's Labor & Employment Practice Group, and a partner in our Litigation and Municipal Practice Groups, Paul represents a wide variety of businesses, individuals and organizations. From untangling complex commercial and construction litigation, navigating the minefield of labor and employment disputes, resolving tax assessment and other municipal matters, to handling general litigation, insurance defense and personal injury cases, Paul has a wealth of litigation experience in the administrative agencies and the state and federal courts.
One of Paul's core areas is labor and employment law, where he provides astute and proactive advice to clients in matters involving executive compensation, overtime, workplace violence, non-compete/non-solicit agreements, sexual harassment, race, sex and age discrimination, family and medical leave, and disabilities.
Prior to joining Underberg & Kessler, Paul worked for the international law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, based in New York City, and served as a Federal District Court law clerk in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. Paul was associate editor of the Fordham Law Review and was admitted to the Order of the Coif, an honorary law society.
Alina Nadir, Associate at Underberg & Kessler. Proficient in Spanish and Dari, Alina is also fluent in a language that often seems foreign to her clients' the law. With experience in employment law and litigation, she is able to translate complex legal issues for her clients so that they are prepared for every possible scenario. She also uses an equally important communication skill-listening. When her clients are confused or overwhelmed by the legal process, Alina believes it is important that they feel they are being heard, and that their attorney is a true champion for their cause.
Before joining Underberg & Kessler, Alina was an attorney at Brown & Hutchinson LLP. She also worked as a regional coordinator for the New York State Senate. A seasoned traveler, Alina's knowledge of the world and different cultures adds depth to her problem-solving skills. She is able to look at legal issues from various viewpoints, and thrives in the challenging environment of litigation. Whether she is defending a small business owner in an employment discrimination matter or representing a major retailer in a personal injury case, she is caring, determined, and detailed--the kind of attorney any client would want in their corner.
Professional and Community Involvement
Alina is a member of the Board of Directors of the Syracuse University Alumni Club of Rochester. She is also a member of Phi Alpha Delta, a professional law fraternity, and the Monroe County Bar Association.
