I was referred to Joni by a friend at a time when I desperately needed to handle a really bad situation at work. Joni is a first class attorney - she was extremely responsive & knowledgeable, and handled my case very strategically. Her advice was always on point, emotion-free, and smart.
I hope I'd never need to hire an employment attorney ever again. However, if you are reading these reviews in search for an attorney - you could stop looking. She's the one you want in your corner when things get turned upside down.
I was referred to Joni by someone when I came across a frusterating and difficult situation with a former employer. She was very understanding throughout the ordeal but remained solid as a rock when it came to my rights. She was able to solidify a great severance for me. Joni is highly knowledgeable, professional, timely, compassionate and was always accessible.
I highly recommend Joni.
My situation required negotiating of severance plus client retention. It was handled very well.
Joni had to be relentless in getting what was needed and she was successful.
I found Joni through a friend and could not have been more pleased with her response. I was looking for guidance on my options within an abusive work environment. Joni calmly talked me through the law, what my options might be and was very direct about her fees so I could make a thoughtfully informed decision about how to proceed. Even after I was able to clear up the situation on my own, she still provided follow up advice. I would definitely seek her council in the future if necessary.
When Ms. Kletter took on my employment-related case, she was quick to understand the facts and equally quick to establish expectations. She subsequently spelled out my options to tackle both my financial wants and emotional/mental redress.
Joni is friendly, patient and strategic. She can also be assertive/responsive when strategically necessary—such as when an adversary needs to be prompted into action. On a day-to-day basis, Ms. Kletter has been quite helpful and timely about answering questions or allaying concerns I might have about my case's direction. She is great at establishing rapport, and has maintained a positive and friendly tone in conversing with the adversary, which has helped tremendously. As for bottom line matters, Ms. Kletter deserves high praise for a good strategy that produced a settlement that significantly exceeded my expectation.These are all things I would expect from best-in-class counsel, and I accordingly would absolutely recommend her.
Joni Kletter treated my case (although not nearly one of her larger cases) as a top priority. She kept me informed of all updates via email and called me intermittently to review. She was almost always available when I phoned and if I needed to leave a message for her to call me she called back within the hour. Emails were promptly answered and she explained everything to me (someone with zero legal knowledge) with great detail and answered any and all questions intelligently but always in a way I could understand. Throughout the duration of my case I knew I was being represented by someone with exceptional knowledge and skill. I will admit I was a bit apprehensive at first but the minute I sat down with Joni I trusted her 110% and highly recommend her as she is an exceptional lawyer and person.
Joni Kletter is an incredible lawyer. She knows when to act boldly, she knows when to wait patiently. Each recommendation she gave me was brilliant and the right call. Because of her sharp, careful, experienced actions, I had the best possible outcome to a very difficult situation. And through it all, Joni remained an empathic, motivating advisor on a painful road. I never needed a lawyer prior to this experience, and Joni embodied all that one could possibly want in an attorney-intelligence, confidence, competence, and compassion. Joni was in constant communication with me and responded immediately to any email or phonecall. She was respectful of the sensitivity and urgency of my circumstances. Having her in my corner was reassuring and powerful. She delivered amazing results.
I highly recommend Joni Kletter as a legal advisor on employment benefits issues. I was referred to her by a peer professional to advise on the negotiation of a severance agreement that I needed to finalize for myself under a tight deadline. Through responsive phone calls and emails over the course of a week, Joni gave me the solid legal advice I needed to make a sound decision on the terms of the severance being offerred to me. Joni's counsel included not only legal analysis of the document I need to sign but a healthy dose real-world business and financial expectations to consider in making my tactical moves during the negotiations. I could not have asked for better counsel.
When I first met Joni Kletter, I was confident she was going to bring justice to my case. She was very receptive every time I talked to her and willing to explain every process. Joni es sensitiva a los problemas de sus clientes y por eso la recomiendo altamente!
I highly recommend Joni Kletter. I have worked with her a couple of times over the years. Ms. Kletter has not just a fine understanding of the law, but also an excellent understanding of the realities of the work place, and what can be accomplished. In this most recent situation, a nuanced approach was what was required for an excellent outcome, and that is what was achieved. I am highly grateful to her.
