I hired Mr. Maloney for a complex employment action. At every step, he displayed the utmost professionalism and knowledge. He was always prepared, well-spoken and respectful. It was a comfort to sit next to him in court knowing that he was more than capable of taking care of all the legal aspects of our case. He was also always compassionate and upbeat. He made a difficult, trying time for me, tolerable. I really felt like I had someone on my side that was more than capable of standing up for my rights. He is a true professional and a great all around person. I can't thank him enough for guiding me through something I never could have done on my own.
I first contacted Mr.Maloney eighteen months ago for a legal opinion on actions my soon-to-be former employer was taking. Then last June he helped me navigate the white waters of contract negotiations with my former employer. Joseph did a great job. Without his help I would have botched it. I recommend him highly.
After serving over 19 years with a local government entity I was abruptly fired ostensibly because of having been found unfit for duty and incapable of performing the essential duties of my position. As my attorney, Joseph Maloney dominated literally every aspect of the ensuing litigation. However, with virtually unlimited financial resources the attorneys representing my employer apparently sought to simply "starve me out", so to speak, and month-by-month ultimately caused legal proceedings to be drawn out over a period of five years. But Joe stayed the course, and shortly after prevailing before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals we finally accepted a seven-figure settlement offer. This was an extremely complicated case, and watching Joe seemingly effortlessly maneuver through all of the legal procedures and court proceedings was most impressive. His profound respect for the judicial system, exemplary conduct, honesty, extraordinary capabilities and meticulousness simply must play well with adjudicators. And his compassion for his clients is utterly remarkable. Do you think you might ever find an attorney who would send paid certificates for flu shots to you and your spouse because he knew your employer had left you financially strapped? I did!
"Joe stuck with me all the way through trial in my difficult 8 year federal employment discrimination case even when I wanted to quit. I'd recommend him to anyone, but especially any federal employee with trouble at work".
Joe was a great help to me when I lost my job. He helped me get my unemployment benefits even though the employer opposed them and EDD initially denied them. And, after that, he helped me take care of my remaining issues with my employer. He was very helpful and quick and competent!
A personal friend at a large law firm referred Joseph to me. He told me his firm rated him a very knowledgeable and competent employment attorney. I have to agree. I trust his judgement, advise and ability to prepare me for the next step in the process. I am confident Joseph provides me the best representation available in labor related matters. If you are looking for an attorney...you need to look no further than Joseph Maloney.
Joseph Maloney is an excellent attorney to work with because he is passionate, thorough and knowledgeable. He was able to make sense of a large volume of complex information and with his great analytical skills and experience, he represented the case fairly. He was easily accessible and stayed familiar and up to date with all aspects of the case. I appreciated his integrity and honesty and how he conducted himself. I felt Joe "owned the case" and that he did everything possible to help me succeed. If needed, I would want him to represent me again.
