  • Marc Joseph Siegel

    Paul Cherner is a first-rate attorney, professional, and person. He is very intelligent and knowledgeable about labor and employment law and strategically uses the law to further his client’s goals and objectives. Paul has handled all types of employment disputes throughout his career. He is pragmatic. He treats everyone with respect and does not demonize opposing counsel. Paul represented a high level executive I know well and did an extraordinary job. He was strategic, understanding, empathic, and achieved a result that very few lawyers could have achieved. In addition to being an excellent attorney, Paul is a very caring, compassionate, and giving person. He is very involved in charitable works and dedicates his time and energies towards assisting those in need. I give Paul my highest recommendation as an attorney, advocate, professional, and human being.
