I recommend Adele Abrams
I hired Adele 6-12 months ago.
Adele handled my Discrimination matter.
I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.
Adele took my discrimination case when most attorneys said no. I had a very hard time finding a lawyer to defend me and had to do most of the work on my own. The EEOC was no help they sided with the employer that sent them false documentation which caused me to loose their representation. It could have been squashed then if i knew what to send to the EEOC and understood their procedures but i had no legal help even from the legal AIDE agency. Adele hinted me in the right direction of what to send to the court in my civil case understood my story and took the case. When she took the case it was at the last stages. I was in the process of losing my case. She turned the case around and I was able to settle out of court with my employer. I live comfortably with the compensation I received from the employer along my SSI benefit. the case has been over for months and i still have cash in the bank. What I really admire about her she took my case looking at the condition I was in with no money and failing health. To be honest i was dead broke, failing health and homeless living out of my car. You can not find a lawyer like that anywhere these days that will do that, you just can't. Adele makes lawyers not look so bad. She a tough gal! I would to proud to recommend her to anyone. Being an gay man in corporate America is tough if you cant hide it or they are on a witch hunt. Its nice to know their are people like Adele out there that will stand up for just because its the right thing to do.
