“Legal conflicts often arise at the most unwelcome and unexpected times. When facing uncertainty about your rights and obligations, it is important to have an advocate on your side who is steadfast, professional, and responsive.”
Nathan Jerauld is a member of the firm’s Litigation Practice Group, with a focus on Trusts and Estates, and Labor and Employment cases. As a U.S. Army veteran, he brings years of experience operating in high-stress environments and delivering tailored analysis of complex issues to the legal field. He believes a positive and personal relationship with his clients is critical to any successful legal claim and will help you identify the best courses of action to take in resolving legal conflicts.
Trusts & Estates
When family members pass away, it should be a time for reconciliation and renewal. Unfortunately, it can also be a period of significant conflict and stress. As a legal advocate, Nathan has helped beneficiaries and trustees understand their rights, defend their interests, and pursue their desired outcomes in multiple forums across the state.
Labor & Employment
Business owners are expected to comply with countless federal and state statutes when hiring and employing workers. These statutes, however, are not always clear or understandable. Through his practice in Labor and Employment Law, Nathan has assisted employers to organize their operations so that they maintain compliance with state and federal laws and can continue their services without interruption.
Additionally, Nathan has helped employers and employees resolve disputes over unpaid wages and wrongful termination, including claims with private business, public employers, and the New York State Department of Labor.
Nathan is motivated by a desire to help people. After six years of military service, he desired to continue helping people by becoming an attorney. He graduated summa cum laude from Syracuse University College of Law in 2019, while also earning a Masters of Public Administration from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University.
He cares deeply for our nation’s veterans. As a combat veteran, he understands the struggles veterans face returning home and transitioning back into civilian life. He assisted veterans as a student attorney in the Wohl Family Veterans Legal Clinic in Syracuse with their military discharges and benefits claims. He also served as a Student Researcher with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, where he helped draft publications and researched veteran-related data.
Nathan’s writing has been published in the Veterans Legal Journal, Huffington Post, and The Atlantic. In 2019, he spoke on a panel in D.C. with the Committee for Responsible Foreign Policy to address his concerns with a proposed federal bill seeking to end the War in Afghanistan.
