Responsive, Professional, Respectful and an Excellent Writer - Highly Recommend
I hired Atty Morenberg during an extremely challenging time in my life to assist me with a difficult employment issue in which I was falsely accused in a Title IX investigation. I was impressed by his responsiveness and how considerate he was of my situation. While I consider myself a good writer, he is well versed and extremely competent in crafting strong, effective responses to allegations in a kind and respectful way. I don't believe I could have won my case otherwise. Thank you again!

Knowledgeable and Efficient. Overall Excellent
Had a very good experience working with Attorney Paul Morenberg after a trusted attorney friend recommended him for some contract review work. Not only was he very responsive to my initial outreach, but he was also very thorough in his explanation of the process I should expect. He reviewed the documents sooner than I had anticipated and we were able to have a very collaborative follow-up discussion about some key points right away. On account of his professionalism, knowledge, and efficiency, I would recommend Attorney Paul Morenberg to anyone seeking professional legal services.

Caring and Compassionate Lawyer
I have been in direct or indirect contact with many lawyers for my case. Among these, Paul is undoubtedly the one who is the most professional and knowledgeable. Not only is he a very outstanding attorney, but also a caring and compassionate mind. I feel fortunate to have his advice and help from the bottom of my heart. So, I want to recommend him to anyone who has employment law needs strongly.

Atty Morenberg seemingly does the impossible: advocates professionally while injecting empathy and understanding.
Atty Morenberg represented me in a defamation case when I was on the Board of Directors of a non-profit. He was fastidious throughout the process including gathering all documentation, thoroughly investigating what happened and negotiating on my behalf. He was there for me every step of the way. Because Atty Morenberg was so organized and focused on every little detail, he was able to quickly resolve my case. Atty Morenberg successfully stopped this organization from ruining my image and reputation with their false and injurious statements. He was also very responsive, keeping me up to date and always available to talk. Atty Morenberg got me the results I was looking for.

An Ethical First Rate Employment Lawyer
Attorney Morenberg helped me with my case and the settlement was more than reasonable. He's ethical, hardworking, and always keeps you informed . Very knowledgeable and honest regarding employment law and the possible risk, strengths, and potential weaknesses of a case. To me Attorney Morenberg is more than an attorney. Over the years, he's become my consultant and personal friend. Often checks in well after the case has been resolved.

Employment and labor Attorney | Aug 14
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I often think that the best endorsement a lawyer can have is an endorsement from a lawyer who was on the other side of a case. This is one of those endorsements! Paul and I were on opposite sides of a hotly contested employment law dispute and his work was always first rate. Paul did a great job for his client and I readily refer matters to him, knowing that the client will be in good hands."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 12
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Paul and I landed on opposite sides of two recent wage disputes. In both matters, I found Paul to be very knowledgeable about wage and hour law, reasonable, and a strong advocate for his clients' positions. Paul took a no-nonsense approach to litigating both cases and undoubtedly saved his clients a lot money by working efficiently on their behalf. I would highly recommend Paul to any employer seeking excellent legal representation."
Litigation Attorney | Jul 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I worked with Paul as opposing counsel on a rather contentious, emotional piece of litigation that involved employment and contract issues. I found him to be a strong advocate for his client who was also professional and reasonable to deal with. He did a great job for his side while keeping communications open. Paul's approach positioned his client well while permitting the sides to talk and, ultimately, reach a reasonable settlement."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 01
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with and known Attorney Paul Morenberg for ten (10) years. He is an excellent lawyer. A smart and an aggressive advocate who is also compassionate. I tried a case with Paul at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination that concerned a health care employer’s failure to offer a long term employee a reasonable accommodation. Paul’s thoroughness and toughness resulted in an excellent result for our client. I highly recommend Paul for any employment related matter."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jun 24
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Paul and I were opposing counsel in an employment discrimination case several years ago. Although it was a difficult case, Paul represented his client in a very professional and highly competent manner. In my opinion, he achieved a good outcome for his client. I would not hesitate to refer individuals or companies in need of employment law counsel to Paul in the future."
