Introduction

I represent clients in state and federal employment, civil, and criminal matters. I am admitted to practice in New York, and my application to the Massachusetts Bar is pending.

Practice Focus

I joined Zalkind as an associate in 2020, following a two-year clerkship with the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.

While attending Georgetown University Law Center, I interned at a legal services non-profit and represented youth in New York City Family Court proceedings. I also interned with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, where I participated in Title IX and disability discrimination enforcement processes.

During law school, I advocated for reform of juvenile justice systems during a summer internship and volunteered to inform students and families of their legal rights prior to school discipline hearings at the D.C. Office of Administrative Hearings.

Prior Experience

Before law school, I worked in Washington, D.C. in political media planning and as a litigation paralegal.

Why I Became a Lawyer

I became a lawyer to help ensure that our legal system works for you, not against you. I want to support my clients during life’s crucial moments. Whether your freedom, your career, or your education is at stake, you deserve the help of someone truly on your side.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I hired Mr. Duncan to deal with a very sensitive issue that my daughter had. Since the first contact, I had a very good impression of him. He transmitted confidence and appeared to know exactly what to do. I called and emailed him many times, he was polite and comprehensible with the anxiety of a father and appeared to know every step to solve the case. I strongly recommend Mr. Duncan. Flavio Lajoia

I contacted Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein to assist with a Title IX case. From our initial conversation, Naomi Shatz had a strong understanding of Title IX policies and conducted each step of the process with professionalism, honesty and a responsiveness that did not disappoint. Ms. Shatz displayed confidence and just as important, compassion when needed. Client

I worked with Emma Quinn-Judge and Monica Shah.

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office... Suzanne D.
