TESTIMONIALS & VICTORIES
Rather, we thought we would provide a sampling that underlies what most of our clients have come to think of our Firm, what distinguishes us from our competition, and some of the cases we have publicly filed on behalf of our clients.
FEMALE EMPLOYEE OF LARGE BANK IN PREGNANCY DISCRIMINATION CASE: “My experience with the Firm was empowering because I know that many women out there are 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 DISCRIMINATION CASE AGAINST LARGE INVESTMENT BANK: “I really valued their confidence. It clearly comes from their experience 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.”
EXECUTIVE AT FORTUNE 100 COMPANY IN FRAUD CASE: “I didn’t want to get a lost in a big Firm. I knew I wanted a small Firm but also one that had excellent resources.”
HIGH LEVEL EXECUTIVE OF PUBLIC COMPANY IN WRONGFUL TERMINATION CASE: “They came out of big firms so they know how they operate-because of their wealth of experience, they are respected by the judges. That was hugely important to me.”
MALE EMPLOYEE IN AGE DISCRIMINATION CASE: “It was hard enough when my employer told me I was fired after 25 years at the company, but the Firm empowered me and got me a result that I can live comfortably.”
FEMALE EXECUTIVE IN GENDER/PREGNANCY DISCRIMINATION CASE: “They laid out the facts as clearly as they could and let me decide the course. I also felt the Firm prepared me very well which, having never dealt with the legal system personally before, was very reassuring.”
FEMALE EXECUTIVE IN GENDER DISCRIMINATION CASE: “When you face big companies you need someone who is not going to blink. You need someone just as confident as those guys on the other side, and the Firm is definitely that.”
CORPORATE OFFICER OF PUBLIC COMPANY IN BREACH OF CONTRACT CASE: “They are bulldogs who are not intimidated by anyone-they are very successful and win big cases.”
EMPLOYEE IN SEXUAL ORIENTATION DISCRIMINATION 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 they still have it.”
EMPLOYEE IN SEXUAL ORIENTATION DISCRIMINATION CASE: “Authoritative in the right ways, gentle when they need to be, perfectly balanced.”
EMPLOYEE IN DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION CASE: “They dedicated every hour of their time to my case when I needed them. My family and I owe them everything.”
