I had a consultation with Michelle Matheson to see if I had a Wrongful Termination Suit. She explained why my situation did not qualify for that type of a case. HOWEVER, I did have an Overtime case. I happened to mention to Michelle that I worked long hours in my job. She asked questions. I was surprised to learn that even though I was a salaried employee, i was entitled to be paid for all the many hours of overtime I'd put in at the job. Michelle & her team put my case together, she filed the suit and handled everything. We never had to go to trial, the case was settled. I'm very pleased. I highly recommend Michelle Matheson.
Ms. Matheson has helped me resolve an issue with a former employer with the best possible results for me, and did so quickly. She is an honest, trustworthy professional, and she really takes the time to listen to what your situation is and analyzes the situation thoroughly prior to acting on it, to produce the best result possible. I had a great experience working with her, and would definately recommend her firm to anyone who needs help resolving an issue with an employer in a timely manner. I thank her very much for all her help!
Michelle is Great!!! She was so informative and helpful! I have learnt so much working with her and she has helped me a lot!! Thank you Michelle!!
I have the utmost respect for Michelle Matheson. What started out as a very stressful experience, completely changed direction the minute I contacted her for legal advice and guidance. Michelle is extremely professional and informative. Communications were always handled quickly and professionally. I am so pleased with everything associated with my experience to include her office personnel. There is something to be said when you have complete confidence in your lawyer and I always had 100% confidence in every aspect of my experience.
I was very disheartened when Michelle told me that I didn't have a case for my wrongful termination because of Arizona law, notwithstanding the facts in the matter. But because she took the time to carefully review the facts, she discovered that my ex-employer had not been properly paying overtime for all the years I was there. The law only allowed us to recover two years of overtime plus an equal amount in damages, but Michelle filed the claim and professionally negotiated a full settlement before we ended up in arbitration. Everything about her was professional and comforting from the moment she walked into the conference room.
I met with Michelle Matheson a week ago regarding my employment matter, and I would have to say that I was very impressed by her knowledge, expertise, experience, and wisdom. Without knowing too much about my case prior to our meeting, she was able to size up my case within minutes, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of it. When it comes to employment-related legal matters, which can get very complicated, you need to have the best people working on your case. And I would have to say that her firm is probably the best in AZ when it comes employment law. Highly recommended.
I contacted Ms. Matheson regarding a separation agreement I was given to sign after a surprising termination. She was very thorough, went over all of the legal language in the agreement so I understood and could then decide whether to accept with my signature. She also explored all avenues of wrongful termination and explained AZ. Right-To-Work status. She attempted to contact the employer's attorney while I was there to discuss a few requests that I had, but the attorney dodged any verbal communication. I would definitely use her services again.
I interviewed a couple of attorneys prior to my hiring Michelle for my wrongful termination case. Michelle's practice advice and no interest in charging fees at every turn is what attracted me to hire her services. Her desire to start with a less bull dog approach was very insightful and it worked.
I had an employment issue that involved problems with severance and a non-compete. I worked with Michelle over about two months to resolve these issues with my former employer -- to my complete satisfaction. Michelle was very knowledgeable about the subjects, proactively communicated with me when needed, replied quickly to my questions, was clear and fair in her billing, and gave sage advice. It was a very good experience and I would highly recommend her to others.
Michelle listened carefully and gave great advice. She is personable and trustworthy. I was impressed by her knowledge, and attention to detail. Thank you Michelle!!
