Nathaniel N. Peckham graduated cum laude from Tulane University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2011, and then went on to receive his Juris Doctorate from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law in 2014, with a concentration in Business Law and Policy. While in law school, Nathaniel gained valuable experience in employment law and litigation through working as a law clerk for the New York City Civil Service Commission, where he worked with Commission members on appeals from disciplinary actions by civil service employees, and later for a highly-regarded tax litigation firm in Los Angeles, a position in which he gained experience working in many aspects of litigation. After being admitted to the bar in California, Nathaniel practiced employment law for a boutique firm in Long Beach, California, where he gained valuable experience in litigating cases solely for employees in various areas of employment law including disability/Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) discrimination, race/national origin discrimination, sexual harassment and discrimination, retaliation, and wage and hour violations, among other areas. Nathaniel has represented clients in matters against varied parties, ranging from small, family-owned businesses to large national corporations, and has achieved results for many clients who were treated unfairly and illegally by their employers.

Nathaniel enjoys practicing employment law because he feels that it is an area of law that helps people truly in need who have been treated unjustly by those who hold power over them, and consistently strives to advocate for his clients with the utmost zeal, dedication, and attention to detail. Nathaniel relocated from southern California to the Philadelphia area in late 2016 and passed the Pennsylvania bar exam soon after relocating. When not practicing law, Nathaniel enjoys playing the guitar and piano and is an avid baseball fan.
