Mahir S. Nisar is the Principal at the Nisar Law Group, P.C., a boutique employment litigation firm dedicated to representing employees who have experienced discrimination within the workplace. Mr. Nisar has developed a stellar reputation for effectively advocating for his clients through his many years of practice as a civil litigator. Mr. Nisar's passion in helping people overcome adversity in life and in their livelihood led him to train himself as a life coach with the Institute of Life Coach Training (ILCT). He routinely provides life coaching and executive coaching services to his existing clients as they collectively navigate the challenges of the legal process.
Mr. Nisar's firm's mission is to advocate for those that have been denied their civil rights on the basis of who they are. His vision is to cater to a socially just society in which people are judged by their character and skills rather than the color of their skin, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, or a disability.
As a minority, Mr. Nisar is passionate about fighting injustices that people encounter in today's society, especially within the workplace and public accommodations. Mr. Nisar has represented employees at all levels including management-level executives. Mr. Nisar is passionate about helping people who have experienced discrimination within the workplace obtain justice through various methods, which include litigation through the Court systems, arbitration and/or mediation through adminstrative and alternative dispute resolution methods within the EEOC, NYSDHR, NYCCHR, and or negotiations with opposing counsel before any legal action is commenced.
As a trained life coach, Mr. Nisar takes the time to evaluate and assess the client's goals, discuss and analyze an effective strategy, and come to an agreed upon process with the client to move forward in obtaining a successful result. The successful result is not one which the attorney from the firm dictates, its one that the client desires and the attorney's fights for. Through every free consultation, Mr. Nisar takes the time to evaluate how he can help his clients once he has understood the context and his potential client's perspective on what happened.
Mr. Nisar graduated from The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. While attending Hofstra University, Mr. Nisar focused on matters concerning civil and commercial litigation. After law school, Attorney Nisar joined a law firm in Queens County where he focused his practice on litigation matters within a variety of substantive areas.
