This is the law firm you never want to hire. After paying about $20,000, they did not do anything meaningful for my case but talked to the defendant’s lawyer for 30 mins. Finally I settled the case by myself and got two times more money than they could settle for me.
It charged me more than $6000 for just organizing the file I sent to them; when I called the lawyer, he even told me he never received the file from me and of course he never read them neither.
I recently engaged The Employment Law Group to assist me in gaining a satisfactory arrangement regarding my forced early retirement from my firm, a large professional organization. I was being pushed out the door at 59 and a half. Given the unlikely chance that I would ever regain even 1/3 of my annual earnings, I sought a fair deal. Scott Oswald and TEGL helped me achieve that.
Scott’s team exhibited great perspective and counsel, and always worked efficiently. While I realized that my case was not very big, they never made me feel that I was a secondary client. They were prompt and responsive, and gave me the sense that they shared my sense of urgency. I would be pleased to recommend TEGL to anyone needing employment law-related assistance.
Scott and his team are an AMAZING group of people. I was extremely impressed with his honesty, patience, ability to explain complex issues, thoroughness, professionalism and above all, his care and compassion towards others. He managed to radically change my opinion of lawyers. He is a terrific human being and it shows in everything he does. He is very knowledgeable about the law and the settlement he negotiated exceeded my expectations. He kept me informed every step of the way and clearly explained my options. He is top notch in everything. My life changed for the better thanks to him!
Scott is a compassionate and talented lawyer who has obviously found his calling in life. He helped me and my family through a difficult encounter with a large Firm with issues centered around the discrimination of military personnel in the workplace and specifically involving treatment of individuals suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I highly recommend Scott and The Employment Law Group to anyone who finds themselves being retaliated against due to "internal whistleblowing" and especially those who are veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. Scott and his team operate with complete integrity and with the skills and knowledge that can only be considered outstanding. The financial costs of his service honestly pale in comparison to the outcome of my case. I recommend Scott and TELG with absolute confidence and without reservation knowing that anyone who reaches out to Scott for help will receive the highest level of professional assistance, personal attention, compassion and consideration.
Scott Oswald is a true professional; clearly tops in his field. He knows the law. You want this man in your corner when the chips are down, or even to review a basic employment contract. He is up front and honest with his client from Day One. I highly recommend his services without reservation.
Scott was extremely knowledgeable and professional. Every aspect of his firm was of the highest caliber. His initial interview with me was thorough and not rushed. I was impressed that he researched the information I gave him before accepting my case. Knowing that he only chose clients whose cases survived his initial scrutiny gave me confidence to proceed. He utilized experts in every area related to my case: vocational rehabilitation,financial analysis, investigation, jury selection, etc. His firm's excellent performance record reflects his diligence and commitment to his clients and, ultimately, justice.
I knew immediately after my first phone call with Scott, I had chosen the right firm to represent me. He, along with his team, kept me informed at every step of the process letting me know what to expect so there would be no surprises. He was quick to respond to my questions/concerns ensuring I was satisfied with the explanation before moving forward with other discussions. This is my first experience/exposure to employment law issues, however if I find I need similar services in the future, the first call I make will be to this firm.
My firm was experiencing a major expense reduction and my position was to be eliminated. There was a meaningful discrepancy between what I believed the firm's obligations were to me and the firm believed their obligations to be relative to severance. I initially engaged with Scott Oswald as he reviewed the merits of my position. Subsequently, David Scher assumed responsibility for advising me and interfacing with the firm. The dynamics of the conversation changed immediately upon Dave's involvement and we had full resolution on primary terms within three weeks. Both attorneys were professional, knowledgable, responsive and very effective in a negotiation environment.
When you need an employment attorney to fight for your cause, it is Scott Oswald.
He is very knowledgeable and experienced. After he agreed to represent me, he looked at all options and developed our legal strategy. At the end, he helped me win a favorable settlement.
I retained Scott to represent me when my employment was terminated wrongfully. He did a thorough investigation of the case before agreeing to represent me. Whithin two weeks of agreeing to represent me, I had a settlement letter in my hand from my former employer. The terms of the settlement were far better than I had expected. Not only I received the maximum monetary compensation that I could, but I also received title to significant intellectual property that was in dispute. Scott went above and beyond my expectations to draft a settlement agreement that was very favorable for me and provided significant legal protection for any future claims.
