Excellent knowledge in this field
I had the pleasure to consult with Attorney Ackerstein. His knowledge and experience about employment law enabled me to put things in perspective I was able to step back and listen to everything we discussed. I would recommend Attorney Ackerstein to anyone who needs an employment lawyer. He is easy to talk to, responds very quickly.and explains things in "Non Attorney" language, which I found incredibly helpful .

High Integrity Attorney
Mike worked two years on my case. He was always prompt in contacting me. He always took the time to explain my legal options. Mike is very bright. Mike always presented the facts and laid out the options for my review and decision. He never pressured me into anything. Mike is a man of great integrity and character. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Very professional and helpful
He called me within couple of hours of my online application and talked to me for about half an hour about my severance package that was offer about my employer. He gave me good useful hint without charging me. I ended up not hiring a lawyer on the issues with my package, but if my employer was correcting my concerns, i would have hired Michael Benjamin Ackerstein for sure
