    • I recommend Michelle Fossum.
    • I hired Michelle more than 3 years ago.
    • Michelle handled my Employment / Labor matter.

    I was laid off 38 days after filing a hostile-work-environment sexual harrasment complaint at my organization. I knew this complaint was a key factor in my layoff.

    I turned to Michelle, who had also instructed me in a course at Whitworth University, and she walked me through my options. Instead of going through a long lawsuit process, I was able to negotiate a larger severance pay. This enabled me to stand up for myself without damaging my professional reputation in a small community. This was a perfect solution for me and my family. If I have similar needs in the future, I'll absolutely use her again.

    Michelle Fossum and her staff worked so hard and dilligently on our case. She always kept us in the loop and we had access to her and her staff anytime we needed them. I can't say enough good things about Michelle and my wife and myself couldn't be happier with the outcome of our case. Would recommend her to anyone!

    • I recommend Michelle Fossum.
    • I hired Michelle 1-3 years ago.
    • Michelle handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I do not live in the state that I was sued so I had to hire an attorney in the state where I was being sued that I had never met to represent me. I was blessed to have hired Michelle Fossum who upon taking my case responded immediately and was the most effective, efficient and responsive attorney that I have ever encountered. Even though my case was not a life or death matter, Michelle treated it as though it was. I had access to her 24/7. She kept me informed at every step of the negotiations and she would not let the sun go down without giving me a call with the latest information so I could rest easy at night and week-ends. She listened to me, and made sure that she fought for the issues that were important to me. She explained in detail any issue that I questioned without making me feel compromised. Within record time she had a successful resolution to my case at unbeliveable low cost due to her immediate attention to all details and quick execution. I would recommend her to anyone with employment law issues!
