He has practiced law since 1979, and has focused on employment and discrimination cases since 1985.

He is a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, the National Employment Lawyers’ Association, the National Employment Lawyers’ Association of New Jersey, and the New Jersey State Bar Association. He is also a Bencher with the Sidney Reitman Labor and Employment Inn of Court, and a member of the highly selective International Network of Boutique Law Firms.

Mr. Resnick graduated from Bowling Green State University with a B.A. in Liberal Studies in 1974, and received his J.D. from Western New England School of Law in 1978. He is licensed to practice law in NJ and NY.
