Testimonials & Victories – Our Clients Tell Our Story Best
Female employee of large bank in pregnancy case:
My experience with the Firm was empowering because I know that many women out there are too scared of standing up for what’s right out of fear of losing their job, or not being let back into the industry. Women need to know there’s a place they can go to get what they deserve.
Female executive in gender/pregnancy case against large investment bank:
I really valued the Firm’s confidence. It clearly comes from their experience in winning cases—they broke it down, told me the formulas, knew every detail — they knew who we were up against, knew all of the lawyers already, and weren’t afraid.
Employee in sexual orientation litigation:
Everyone I worked with at the Firm was well informed and really gave me the full picture of the scenario and made it clear they had my best interest at heart. They wanted me to make informed decisions — they earned my trust and still have it.
Corporate officer of public company in breach of contract case:
They are bulldogs who are not intimidated by anyone — they win big cases.
