Superb Legal Advocate
Jon and his firm represented me in an employment wrongful termination dispute which ultimately required filing a law suit. The matter was finally settled with the assistance of a mediator. Through out the process, which lasted almost two years, Jon was a forceful advocate for me. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable in New Jersey employment law and understanding of the emotional and financial stress I was under. I would highly recommend Jon and his firm.

Protected my rights
I recommend Jon who represented me in a hard fought wrongful termination case. There are lots of dynamics in a termination case. No matter how much you feel wronged, there will be times of self-doubt as the other side hammers away at you to try to make you doubt yourself and the case. It was important to have an attorney like Jon and his firm who understood what really happened, what was right and what was wrong, and helped make sure we gathered appropriate evidence and could present the case to prove it. He understands what it takes to present your case in the real situations of the legal system and how to make sure you understand the process and get a reasonable outcome.

Exceptional experience
Jon came highly recommended to me through one of his colleagues. As soon as we started talking he knew exactly what the main crux of my case should be and how it should be handled. He and his staff were in constant communication throughout the whole process. They never left a question unanswered. They worked patiently to make sure that I received a just and fair end to my case. His empathy for my situation was more than I could have asked for. Workplace situations are very delicate and emotional. Jon struck the great balance between being firm with me, keeping me focused and having the right sense of humor! There is no doubt that he is the leader in his field, his expertise is exceptional. I would, without any hesitation recommend Jon and his firm.

Superb attorney with high integrity and empathy
Jon Green kindly responded to me and took my case when I was at a most difficult time. The initial meeting really impressed me when Jon and Glen discussed with me as a team and grasped the key of my case already with their superb professional expertise, and I walked out of the door knowing that my case was in good hands and feeling so much relieved. Jon has extensive knowledge and experience. He was very prompt and sharp, navigating through significant amount of complex information, distilling key facts, and developing actionable insights. He effectively and forcibly pursued creative angles to progress the matter. Jon fought aggressively and diligently on behalf of my best interest. He provided guidance every step of the way, always giving explanations, options and advice for next step in support of my decision. Jon is kind, warm-hearted and has an outstanding empathy. I highly recommend Jon Green and Green Savits Firm for any employment related matter.

Age Discrimination Case
Jon Green is a consummate high integrity legal professional who not only knows New Jersey employment law but knows how it works and how to work it. He is relentless and tenacious in his pursuit of justice for his client. He’s fearless and will consistently fight to get a fair settlement for you. He doesn’t back down. He’s a client-oriented attorney who listens carefully to his client so that he fully understands the case details and what your objectives are. If he doesn’t know or understand something you’ve said, he’ll ask you to explain further. He doesn’t assume anything. He’s very detail oriented. Jon will be fully engaged in your case and is best described as “all in” once the wheels of justice begin to turn. Jon also will tell you what you need to know not what you want to hear. He’ll give you the good news and the bad news. As the case twists and turns, Jon takes the time to explain it to you so you understand it and what ramifications it has for your case. Jon works with the client collaborating on strategies and next steps. I was referred to Jon by a corporate labor attorney who recommended Jon because “Jon has a game plan”. Once Jon knows all the details of your case he definitely will have a game plan. That said, he is open to the client’s opinions and is willing to take a different path that the client suggests if it makes sense and is beneficial to the case. Jon was always accessible and his staff and other partners were very helpful. After three and a half years the case was settled out of court and it was a very positive outcome. In my opinion, you couldn’t have a better employee rights attorney fighting for you than Jon Green. TS

Expert whistleblower attorney
Jon represented me as a whistleblower against a former employer. He worked with me for over three years and negotiated a settlement that I am happy with. Jon’s knowledge of employment law, coupled with his many years of experience never ceased to amaze me. He always took my calls and answered my questions, patiently educating me on how the law works. What you want from your case and what you can realistically achieve with the evidence you have is something that Jon understands well. Jon is open-minded, he will listen to your suggestions and will work with you to give you the best chance of success. Jon has seen it, done it and he draws on his own experiences over his long career to provide the “battle plan” for your case. The proof is in the results and I can truly say that Jon delivered for me. We spent a long time together working on my case. If you hire Jon, you will gain the benefit of his experience, a brilliant legal advocate and also a friend. I will miss him. Thank you again, Jon.

Response from Jon Green August 9, 2022
One of the major rewards of doing this work is getting to know people from different walks of life. I believe that it is necessary to get to know the person I am representing as an individual and not just someone who suffered at the hands of their employer. When getting to know someone during my representation of them, it helps me to be a better person and a better lawyer not only for the individual(s) I am representing but for my other clients as well. I am touched that this client will miss me and I feel the same about him and many other clients as well. Thank you for this review. It means a lot.

Excellent, Professional, Forceful Advocate
After experiencing a wrongful termination and feeling beat up, alone and helpless, I interviewed many attorney's before finding Jon. After meeting Jon, I knew he was the one to get it done. Jon asked the right questions and could see through the lies. He was always available to take my calls, and he and his amazing staff always made me feel like my case was important and it was their priority. Jon was more than an attorney. He was my advocate, a sounding board, a shoulder to lean on and he kept me grounded through the entire process. It was a horrible time in my life, but having Jon by my side, I never felt alone as he gave me the guidance and support I needed to persevere to a great outcome.

Outstanding!
Jon was the only lawyer who called us back, after my wife and I told our story to several other Attorneys. We not only received our settlement, but he provided immeasurable support for our entire family throughout the process. Words can't thank him enough for not only taking our case, but reassuring us we were doing the right thing. The first day we met Jon, my wife shook his hand and said "So sorry, my hands are so cold". His reply, "Cold hands, warm heart". I'll never forget his sincerity and kindness that day, we walked out and knew everything would be ok. Thank you Jon, for everything you did for our family. Words are not enough to express our gratitude.

Better severance package
We hired Jon Green to negotiate a better severance package. Jon is knowledgeable, prompt, experienced and a great listener. He was good in explaining my best options. He was prompt in all the communication with my ex-employer and he was successful in negotiating a favorable severance package in a short time. Our experience with Jon Green was very good and we would highly recommend Jon to others in a similar situation.

Sarbanes Oxley/Whistleblower Case
Jon Green successfully negotiated a very favorable agreement on my behalf in a complex SOX/Whistleblower case. Jon used his extensive knowledge of the complicated SOX/Whisteblower and employment law coupled with his years of practical negotiating experience to bring this matter to a prompt close without having to pursue a lawsuit. Jon quickly got to the pertinent facts to substantiate our position and guided me through the process. I sincerely enjoyed working with him and highly recommend the use of his services in any employment related matter.

Excellent review and application of employment law.
Mr. Green has a keen understanding of details and summarizes matters succinctly and clearly while framing a course of action to progress in the matter. His interpretation of law and explanation of facts and circumstances encourages the opposing side to provide an equitable response.

Sarbanes Oxley/NJ Whistleblower Case
Jon and his team were very thorough in representing me in this case. I was fired for what I believed to be violations of SEC and NASDAQ market rules. There some very complicated issues which had to be navigated very carefully. Jon provided explanations to me based on his extensive research so that I could proceed and make intelligent decisions. I would recommend Jon and his firm whenever the circumstances arise. The case terminated to my satisfaction.

Smart and effective counsel
Mr. Green successfully guided me through the HR and legal process on my age discrimination claim so that when I was terminated, he was able to negotiate a highly favorable package that well exceeded my former employer's initial offer. Throughout our dealings, his approach was pragmatic and professional. His guidance and predictions on how events might unfold were quite accurate. Mr. Green helped steer me through the ups and downs, wrote effective letters, researched case law extensively to help build our case, and was a firm but fair negotiator with in-house counsel, which I believe was a major difference in gaining a positive outcome.

Employee Gender and Age Discrimination Case
Jon came highly recommended to me by a number of individuals who had gone through similar issues in their place of employment. His name kept coming up as the guy to talk to because of his knowledge and positive track record in dealing with the giants in corporate America. I took the leap of faith and called for an appointment for a consultation to see if I indeed had a case or if I was wasting my time. I was struck by not only his depth and breadth of knowledge, but his experience in dealing with not only my company, but the other giants in the industry. From the moment we met until we settled my case, Jon was always open, honest and upfront about what had to be done if we wanted to file a discrimination lawsuit. He believed I had a case, but he wanted me to understand that the attorneys in corporate America would drag this out for a long period of time and I should be prepared for what could happen. I told him I was not so much concerned about the discrimination I experienced in being passed up for promotions because of age and gender, that I was more concerned that they were trying to railroad me out of the company. My track record throughout my employment was stellar and I had always been an exceeds in rating, and I knew my boss was trying to get me out of my position so he could bring his own people in to fill my role. We talked about my course of action, and decided that I would wait until they made a move to get me out of the job or the company before we did anything. In the meantime he put together a clearly laid out plan that I needed to follow. He stressed the importance of my documenting everything that happened in the past that lead up to this and going forward. For ten months I worked with Jon to build my case. He was always there to counsel me, and make sure I was doing all of the right things to bring about a positive conclusion to my problem. During the entire process he was always honest, and told me what I could expect the company to do. He respected my opinions and told me moving forward was my decision. He felt I had a case and could go to court, and he made it clear that in the end it was my decision. He gave me all of the information and support I needed to make an informed decision. Jon is not only a brilliant attorney, he is exceptionally detailed and has great follow-up. no matter what questions I had or how many times I called him, he was always quick to call me back and provide me answers to my question. I have and will continue to recommend Jon. The best part about dealing with Jon is that the company and I were able to settle without having to go to court, and we both walked away satisfied with the outcome. I still today because of the way this was handled, maintain a great working relationship with my former company and am well thought of by the people at the top. Jon understood I was not looking to burn bridges, just to get what was rightfully mine. I will continue to recommend Jon and would use him again and again. He is an attorney like no other. Someone you can count on to tell you like it is and get you the results you deserve.

Extremely Professional and Knowledgeable Attorney
I hired Jon Green to represent me in a dispute concerning my former employer. Jon and his gracious professional staff flawlessly guided me through the winding steps of the legal process from the first day that I consulted with him through to the mediation process when my case finally settled, a progression of steps that ultimately took some 20 months to conclude. Jon initially authored a demand letter and debated the merits of the case with the company’s corporate attorney. When they failed to respond in an appropriate manner we filed a lawsuit. During the course of the legal proceedings Jon Green always impressed me with his excellent command of the legal statutes and deep understanding of the implications of the relevant case law in NJ as they related to arguments on both sides in my case. Jon held review meetings with me in order to go through the discovery evidence in very great detail so that he and the other lawyers in his firm would have a precise understanding of the relevance of each piece of data submitted both by myself and the company. Jon also filed an appeal before the NJ appeals court when a change of venue was erroneously granted to the other side. His argument for appeal displayed a profound understanding of the law and the case law which justified our appeal. About 20 months after case was first filed a mediation date was finally set and the case concluded much to my great satisfaction. During the mediation Jon again displayed excellent skills at negotiation and ultimately a very fair settlement was reached and the need for a jury trial was averted. I would strongly recommend Jon Green to any of my friends or colleagues living in NJ who might some day run into grave issues with their employers.
