Claimed Lawyer Profile
Biography

John Shahdanian is a veteran practitioner of employment law. He is well-versed in and frequently consulted about matters related to discrimination claims, disability claims, sexual harassment claims, whistleblowing, noncompete clauses, wage and hour, family leave and private sector labor law.

John has successfully represented both private and public sector clients, including high-ranking government officials and corporate C-suite officers. An experienced litigator, he has argued and won in both federal and state courts, as well as in arbitration and state administrative tribunals.

John’s skills extend beyond the courtroom as well. He provides anti-discrimination and sensitivity training and drafts discrimination and other policies for both corporate and municipal clients.

The towns of Teaneck, Hackensack, Bergenfield, Maywood and New Milford all turn to John for legal advice, as does the County of Bergen, County of Passaic, Bergen County Utilities Authority, the Office of the Bergen County Prosecutor and the Bergen County Technical and Special Services School Districts.

Lauded by peers and publications throughout his career, John was recognized in 2008 as one of New Jersey’s brightest stars under the age of 40. He is a mainstay on New Jersey Monthly’s Super Lawyers list and a number of others, and holds Martindale-Hubbell law directory’s highest peer review rating for ethical standards and legal acumen.

John is one of only 42 Trustees of the New Jersey State Bar Association. In that capacity, John’s peers have entrusted him to help the organization carry out its mission and enhance the practice of law in the state.

A dedicated member of his community, John actively gives back by serving as a coach for numerous youth sports teams in Old Tappan, where he and his family live. John was also voted onto the Old Tappan Board of Education in 2016.
