  • CompuLaw’s president David Kalmick referred us to partner Michael Sherman, of Alschuler, Grossman, Stein & Kahan, the company’s outside counsel.

    Sherman said CompuLaw and Kalmick, over the company’s nearly 30-year history, “have been equal opportunity employers who provide a terrific workplace environment for qualified, competent employees,” and dismissed the allegations as “nonsense.”

    “The complaint is not fit for a garbage can liner or kitty litter, and will be proved as such,” said Sherman.
