About Molly A. Sullivan
Molly 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. 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, Molly has experience in intellectual property, digital media, employment, and other areas of law pertaining to the operation of museums and archives. With a bachelor’s from Mount Holyoke College in Studio Art and Art History and a master’s from Seton Hall University in Museum Professions, she 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. In that role, 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.

Devin P. Cohen in the New York City Civil Court. Molly is also a visual artist specializing in drawing and mixed media, and has shown her work in New York and New Jersey.
