Summer was exactly the representative I needed in a discrimination dispute I had with an employer.
During my initial consultation she was compassionate and easily grasped the issues at play in the dispute. She laid out several options including additional negotiating before getting her involved. She believed in the case but obviously was not just in it for the money.
When I chose to retain her services we again discussed possible outcomes and options. Ultimately I decided to pursue an out-of-court course of action. She became my advocate, efficiently communicating my desires, my employer's offers and my counter-offers, finally producing a generous severance as well as preserving my right to go to work for a competitor. My work environment had become impossibly strained, and I greatly sppreciated the prompt settlement.
Every email and voicemail was answered within an hour...often she left messages for me, not the other way around. She made a very uncomfortable work environment something I was able to walk away from. I know that's her job, but not once did it seem that she was just ' doing her job'. I never felt 'processed'; I felt like a person.
I would strongly recommend Summer to anyone with a legitimate employment dispute. She believes in doing the right thing.
Summer showed a great amount of care in dealing with my case. She was constantly helpful, prompt in returning phone calls and emails and willing to work to my benefit. I recommend Summer Murshid to anyone in the Milwaukee area that is in need of a labor attorney.
Summer was very helpful and knowledgeable. She handled my case very well. I am happy I decided to have her represent me.
Summer is an excellent attorney that I would recommend to anyone encountering issues that stem from an employer/employee relationship.
Almost 3 years after leaving a Wisconsin based company, I encountered an issue which entangled unemployment benefits, Military service/USERRA, and US Tax law. Summer was able to provide excellent service to the root cause of my issue, while simultaneously providing feedback on all related issues. Her ability to reach outside of her comfort zone in order to meet my specific need is unparalleled in my experience. At the time of the incident, I had moved to Washington, DC and begun a career here. Even without ever being able to meet face to face, Summer was able to translate a sense of calm with her immediate grasp of the issues, and ability to prioritize them for me and give a top notch cost-benefit analysis. Going so far as to tell me when she thought some of her services were not needed, and thus saving me billing hours.
This selfless devotion to what must have been my one of her many cases, (even so far as to continue working on my behalf during her wedding and honeymoon!) has led me to constantly recommend her to any and all of my associates who require employment law services, as well as looking to her for advice and opinions on cases and case law that arise in my current work.
At no point did I ever feel pressured, or uncomfortable, or that I was not in control of the situation. Always suggesting, never telling, and always able to either answer a question, or find the answer and respond back with remarkable alacrity, I would strenuously urge anyone who is considering her services to immediately do so.
