I hired Mr. Lenzo to represent me in a gender discrimination case against my former employer while I was still employed by the company. I had consulted with other attorneys prior to meeting Mr. Lenzo and each had expressed doubt about commencing the case while I was a current employee. Mr. Lenzo on the other hand did not hesitate, showing that he was not afraid to fight for his clients’ rights and take on seemingly “tougher” cases even if it means ruffling a few feathers. Mr. Lenzo’s attention to detail is phenomenal. Aside from being an employment law expert, he takes the time to make sure that all his T’s are crossed and his I’s dotted. Mr. Lenzo and his team took the daunting process of standing up to my employer and made it almost painless. There was never a moment where I needed Mr. Lenzo and could not reach him, or where his office “dropped the ball”. I am truly grateful to have been a beneficiary of the well-oiled machine that is Lenzo & Reis, LLC.

I hired Chris Lenzo, after talking to three attorneys, because of his passion and responsiveness. He has an excellent record of dedicated service and proven results. It was his strong belief in my conviction that I was wrongfully terminated that tipped my decision. Throughout the process, through to resolution, Chris responded quickly to my inquiries until I understood the legal aspects of the matters at hand, and he leveraged my expertise of the subject matter and the other parties involved.
When an unusual legal issue, unrelated to my termination, arose, outside of his primary expertise, he sought additional legal counsel to help both of us understand the situation.
He delivered stellar support during the final phase of the resolution of the matter, demonstrating his strong passion and commitment to my case, knowing when to listen and knowing when to argue and fight for my cause.
Because of his strong passion and championship, I was absolutely satisfied with the outcome and believe together we achieved justice for a clear case of wrongful termination.
