Partner Nina Pirrotti Featured on NBC Connecticut to Discuss Higher Starting Salaries for College Graduates and its Potential Positive Impact on All Employees

Sep 6 2021

Garrison, Levin-Epstein, Fitzgerald & Pirrotti, P.C. Partner Nina Pirrotti appeared on NBC Connecticut to discuss rising starting salaries for recent college graduates. You can find the full segment here.

On September 6th, Nina spoke with NBC Connecticut’s Dan Corcoran about the rise in starting salaries for recent college graduates.

Nina discussed how higher starting salaries can impact opportunities college graduates and other employees have for career growth and satisfaction, saying: “The salary is wonderful and that in and of itself does open up opportunities like perhaps pursuing an advanced degree while they’re still in their current position, because they have the luxury now of having their financial level of comfort that they can do both. But it is more about the general working conditions, the flexibility that not only these college students have, but perhaps even greater numbers of different types of employees have as a result of the pandemic.”

When asked whether this trend might ultimately benefit the entire economy, Nina responded:

“I am cautiously optimistic that actually this phenomenon will benefit the economy as a whole, because the economy benefits when as many different segments of the society are participating in it, right. So when you have working mothers coming back to the workforce, when you have people of color coming back to the workforce, disabled people, people who have primary responsibility for caring for someone else at home, and they’re all now meaningfully participating in the workforce, the economy can only benefit it as a result.”

    Client Experiences

    During a very difficult employment situation, I was referred to Joe Garrison. Recognizing the volatile and time sensitive nature of my employment situation, Mr. Garrison met with me immediately (on the weekend no less). He listened to the details of my case, was able to think through possible creative solutions to offer the employer, and was responsive to my myriad of questions. He understood my concerns about litigation versus settlement, and he worked to find the best resolution possible. I am grateful to have had his support at a very difficult time. —J.C., New Haven, CT

    Ethan Levin-Epstein represented me during a most painful and challenging crisis in my personal and professional life. Seeing me within 24 hours of being referred, his support and advocacy, wisdom and clarity not only resulted in a favorable negotiated outcome for me and for my family, but gave me peace of mind and the courage to recover. I am very grateful to have met Ethan and his team and would refer anyone in need to this haven. — C.L., Guilford, CT

    You will never meet a more knowledgeable and compassionate professional than Steve Fitzgerald. My employment situation was very complex, and Attorney Fitzgerald kept me focused while remaining extremely adept and “thinking on his feet.” Should the need present itself again, I would never seek anyone else’s counsel regarding employment issues. I cannot recommend him highly enough. — J.R., New Haven, CT

    Nina Pirrotti provided outstanding legal advice and was trustworthy, dependable, and responsive. From the start, I was confident that her knowledge and experience would obtain favorable results. On a more personal note, I enjoyed working with her and her staff and felt I was included in every part of the process. The dedication, concern, and interest in me as a client was greatly appreciated, and Nina has earned my highest recommendation. — J.H., Monroe, CT

    I recently found myself in need of a lawyer in handling a dispute with my former employer. I was fortunate to retain Josh Goodbaum as my legal counsel. His legal skills knowledge and professionalism shone through in every step of the process resulting in a very positive result. I highly recommend Josh if you find yourself in need of legal counsel. — S.R., Guilford, CT

    When I go to a lawyer for advice, I am usually anxious, particularly the first meeting. Amanda DeMatteis was clear in describing my options and immediately set me at ease. Realistic assessment is important, and Amanda was clear as to how to set up the case and the direction she felt we should go. I had total confidence in her abilities and knew I was being well represented against a large corporation. More importantly, we were successful! —N.M., Haddam, CT
