I was in need of a lawyer to support the development of an agreement between myself and my former employee. Ms. DeBelle was an excellent listener and gave me a clear idea of what to anticipate in review of all of my options. Her clarity and precise thinking was very critical as I was in need of a guiding professional in circumstances that were uncomfortable for me. Our work together was efficient and well documented. She was careful to check with me every step of the way but did not abuse her time usage - I felt I was very fairly represented and very successfully.
I had been discharged by my employer. It was a wrongful termination. I was an immigrant who did not know anyone to ask for help. I had seen Many lawyers, and law firms and spent more money than I needed to. I need guidance. I was desperate and frustrated. I was looking for an honest representation against my powerful employer.
Finally I met Denise DeBelle. She knew what I needed. She knew employment law very well and
represented me in negotiations so that I got my Job and prestige back. Years Later I asked her about a friend who needed a divorce, and help for an immigration problem. I knew exactly where to turn. Mrs. DeBelle again helped my friend to obtain a consultation and guided us towards the right direction. Mrs DeBelle is the voice of the common people. She is honest, resourceful, and an expert in her area. I highly recommend her.
Ms DeBelle's attention to detail, legal knowledge and her ability to quickly analyze facts was key to the successful outcome of my claim. A long and arduous case, Ms DeBelle showed an exceptional ability of keeping familiar with all the details and nuances of the claim. Ms DeBelle kept me informed in a timely manner and answered any questions or concerns I had.
Ms. DeBelle showed up late to court. My hearing was scheduled for 10:30, we agreed to meet at 10:15, she showed up at 10:50. She had not filed the required paperwork for representing me. When she was before the judge, she did not present my defense. She did not tell the judge what I had told her, which was why I had hired her. She sort of stood before the judge and acted defenseless. She charged me $120.00 for appearing in court and apologized; but, she had told me she thought it a weak case.
