I'm so glad I hired Barbara as my attonery. She took my case when no one else would. Barbara and her staff is wonderful. I always tell people about her she's grrrrrrrreat!!!
Barbara's secret weapon is that she does not look intimidating....and I pity those who underestimate her for it! Barbara is sweet and kind, and absolutely fierce in litigation! She was respected by the court and even defense counsel, and at the same time was a ruthless advocate for me. She took wonderful depositions, was a tough negotiator at mediation, and settled my case for an amount I am incredibly please with, and will provide for my family for a loooong time.
I came to Barbara with a very difficult and complex employment case. She was incredibly personable, and spent as much time with me as I needed to understand all the issues in my case, and help me prepare and feel comfortable with the process. Barbara and her staff were very helpful in helping me gather all my information, prepare for my deposition, and made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. Barbara always took the time to speak with me directly, and never passed me off to her staff, as a lot of lawyers do. She made me feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process, even when we had to spent a lot of time on technical legal issues. She was incredibly prepared in court, and could recall details instantly, even if they had not been brought up in the case for months! Barbara was kind and patient every step of the way, and I would recommend her to anyone facing an employment issue at work.
Barbara Figari took on my case when no other attorney thought I could win. Although they sympathized with my case, they felt it was unwinable because I quit. Barbara found case law that supported my case and won an overwelming verdict for me after a 4 week trial. I am very happy with the verdict and monetary amount awarded me by the jury.
