Ms. Franklin is the rare balance of being pure brilliance and all heart!
She is what every good lawyer should be, but sadly isn't, a hero warrior for their client!
If I would string every praising adjective together to laud her virtues, they would all fall short.
In a perfect world, oh that every attorney had the gifts, talents, integrity, and honesty as Ms. Franklin!
I recommend all minority potential clients to seek other counsel. Ms. Franklin worked for the benefit of the entity I was in litigation with. And did not operate in my best interest. She also intentionally did not perform critical interviews on my behalf, after I repeatedly requested that she did.
I found Jamie after pursuing an exhaustive track record review of numerous employment attorneys in the Chicago area; after seeing her results I was convinced she was the right attorney for my case. She is one of a kind, a true plaintiff's attorney, someone who defends her clients' best interests fiercely, and is not afraid of going the extra-mile to get your day in court. I can not tell you how good it feels to have Jamie in my corner, I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
I recently filed a lawsuit for the first time in my life, over a contract dispute where a company failed to make good on payments for work I did. I was nervous going into the process, but felt I had no choice. A colleague referred me to Jamie Franklin, and I could not possibly be happier with the results. She listened carefully to my story, followed up immediately, kept in touch frequently, and eventually delivered very satisfactory results. I appreciated how much attention she gave my case, even though it was a relatively small one. She was cordial and professional throughout. Couldn't recommend her more highly.
I called Jamie out of the blue with a last minute request for a non compete document to be drawn up. After properly educating me on various approaches she could take in the write up, she also took extra time to describe how she could add additional clauses to protect me and my company. She quickly drew up this document within 1.5 hours, She followed up with me and thoroughly explained all of the legal jargon, and was very generous with her time.
Previously, i had done some extensive shopping and other lawyers expected fees that were 5-6 times as much and expected a week turn around.
I would highly recommend Jamie. She is incredibly fair with her time and fees. Moving forward she will be my go to legal consultant for all my company's needs.
