Molly Sullivan focuses her practice on handling all aspects of workers’ compensation litigation, including representing insurance carriers in complex trials involving issues of compensability of claims, proper carrier, and potential fraud.

Molly’s practice includes taking testimony from claimants and witnesses; deposing physicians on issues of medical treatment and alleged disability; drafting appeals, rebuttals, and memoranda of law; and negotiating favorable resolutions. She draws on previous experience as a hearing attorney for the New York State Special Funds Conservation Committee, where she handled workers’ compensation claims from inception to resolution, including appeals, and trained new attorneys.

In addition to her workers’ compensation practice, Molly has significant experience in intellectual property, digital media, employment, and other areas of law pertaining to the operation of museums and archives. With a bachelor’s in Studio Art and Art History and a master’s in Museum Professions, Molly has served as a curator, educator, and legal advisor to several museums and nonprofit organizations. Most recently, as director and curator of the Near East Relief Historical Society (an educational initiative of the Near East Foundation), Molly handled all intellectual property inquiries, created internal policies for ethical collecting and transparent operations, and drafted exhibition agreements and work-for-hire agreements for external talent. Molly created a digital museum commemorating Near East Relief — America’s groundbreaking humanitarian response to the Armenian Genocide. She has lectured at educational and commemorative events at public and private institutions across the United States, including museums, archives, and libraries.

Molly earned her J.D. at Brooklyn Law School, winning the school’s Gold Award for Public Service and CALI Excellence for the Future Awards for Criminal Procedure and Film Lore. She served as notes and comments editor for the Journal of Law and Policy, was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society, and was a semifinalist in the American Bar Association (ABA) Employment and Labor Competition. She gained experience in legal internships with the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Law School Employment Law Clinic, and the King’s County District Attorney’s Office, and in a judicial internship and post-graduate fellowship with the Hon. Devin P. Cohen in the New York City Civil Court.

Molly is also a visual artist specializing in drawing and mixed media. She has shown her work in New York and New Jersey.
