I was in a hopeless situation at my small firm where there was no real HR department and every horrific scenario you can imagine we're taking place by management: sexual harassment, racial profiling, racial and gender discrimination, cronyism. You name it, it took place there. I was about to quit before speaking to Jill who worked out a strategy for me. After 2 meetings with her, I ended up receiving an extremely generous severance agreement from my firm and they agreed to pay for my COBRA! The result I was able to get from hiring Jill was a far cry from the $400/hr attorney I had a free 20 minute phone consultation with who informed me that I MIGHT have a case due to gender discrimination (as opposed to that, racial discrimination and harassment). If you are in work situation where you think you don't have a case, let Jill be the one to decide. Forget the fancy, expensive lawyers who don't give a damn about you. Not only is Jill very affordable - she immediately comes across as a friend, not some corporate, cold hearted person out to make a buck. She truly has your best interest at heart and is extremely knowledgeable in employment law. I am so lucky to have found her because hiring her was indeed the best decision I made and I have no qualms about referring her to family and friends.

Jill is very knowledgeable and credible. She walked me step by step through the process. She listened to me and she made me feel comfortable and secure in her representing me. She is very sharp, so no need to panic should the other side throw any curve balls!

Jill has been handling my case in a professional, thoughtful, and insightful fashion. She takes the time to make sure my questions are answered, attends to every detail and follows up in a way that leaves no loose ends. Although the work has yet to reach a resolution, I am confident in Jill's services and recommend her highly. I look forward to continuing to work with Jill.
