Atty. Pontikes helped me through a lengthy dispute with my employer. She is thoughtful, determined, ethical, and smart -- meaning both insightful and "book-smart". She always maintained both a sense of reality and a sense of humor, and helped me do the same, during a very tough period in my life. I've often asked myself, how Rebecca managed to remain so diligent and persistent throughout the difficult journey of my case; I credit this to her strong sense of justice, and her belief in the cause we had taken on.... This is the rare sort of individual you would want alongside you during the taxing legal process.

Among the most sacred tenets of my life is "Avoid as much as possible any entanglements with the medical system and the legal system." But when circumstances put my health in jeopardy, I want the best doctor possible. Likewise, when I need an employment lawyer, I want Rebecca Pontikes. She is patient, thorough, knowledgeable, passionate, tenacious, and, more often than not, way smarter than the opposition. Despite my disregarding my own credo, I must say that when I was indifferently wronged by an arrogant employer and not only justice but also retribution was my aim, working with someone as sharp and insightful as Atty. Pontikes nearly made litigation fun. I could not be more delighted with the outcome and our working relationship.

During the lengthy course of my case Attorney Pontikes was the third second chair I had, and much to my relief she was superb. I couldn't have asked for a more involved caring and competant attorney. She was a knowledgable guide to the exausting MCAD process and she continues to be an inspiration for me today.
