Claudia is the perfect combination of understanding and compassion, and then a complete Pit bull when the appropriate time comes. No matter what she is doing, she always find the time to answer or return your phone call. She has an easy way about her that makes complex matters understandable without ever being condescending.
My case involved a government organization which I worked for.
I reported on people who were doing the wrong things to the appropriate authorities (admirable to most people). My employer fired me after finding out that I had reported the wrong doing (in essence they fired me for blowing the whistle). Claudia was relentless in her preparation and she never stopped working. Claudia was there for me every step of the way and never took their answers to be justified. Anytime the employer made any kind of move, Claudia would immediately be firing off e mails or rushing to court to file a motion. She doesn't budge when she knows she's right. Claudia had the employer on their heels from day one and they feared her. In the end they gave me my job back, all back pay and a promotion. They also paid Claudia's legal fees.
I've been told in order to win a case you need three things. You need a good client, good facts for the case and a good attorney.
When you retain Claudia you automatically start with one of those three, the other two are up to you. In this day and age, your job is your life. When your life is on the line, you want Claudia.

I filed a complaint under the CEPA act against my employer and consequently I was terminated. I consulted with her as to my course of action. As a result I retained her to pursue the matter. The matter was dealt with professionally and all options was clearly reviewed with me. I was able to make an informed decision of every aspect of the proceedings. The most outstanding was the attorney caring attitude in terms that she wanted to serve my best interest. The step by step process approach was done in a detailed and timely manner. She explained things in lay man term that is easily understood. The outcome achieved was satisfactory and she made a positive impact which helped me maintain justice. Her assistance with my unemployment benefit request was successful as a direct result of her involvement. and guidance . I was very pleased with her excellent services as an attorney and for this I am extremely grateful to her.

Claudia Reis is an exceptional lawyer with an empathy and kindness for her clients. Her sincere willingness to help work with our specific needs exceeded our expectations. Her office staff was welcoming and helpful from the beginning through the end of our process. We entered her office trepidatious and nervous and her warm smile and confidence immediately put us at ease. She was forth right and honest with our choices and possible outcomes enabling us to make clear decisions. She was upfront with all financial aspects of our case including her costs as well as what could be expected down the line. She was generous with her time and her costs were very fair. Both she and her staff responded quickly when contacted via email and acted quickly on all of our requests. Ms. Reis' services were recommended to us by another lawyer. We were fortunate to have found such a caring and expert advocate of our case.

After being fired from a job I held for 7 yrs I felt the need to look for legal representation. I discussed my case with four different employment attorneys, who felt intimidated by my situation and acted like they wanted nothing to do with. Then I landed in the hands of Claudia Reis. After speaking with Ms. Reis, I felt I was in the right place, where others said "no" she was ready to put up a legal fight. Her compassion, expertise, attentiveness and her will to never give up is what sets her aside from the rest. I felt like I was part of a new family, knowing I could pick up the phone at any time for whatever reason and always get a response. Her efforts caused the defendants to settle out of court for the amount she demanded. My family and I could never be grateful enough for the way she fought this case. She and her firm are truly "The best in the business".

I met Claudia while defending a lawsuit brought against my company from a former employee that she was representing. Her knowledge of employment law resulted in our losing the first employment case brought against us in our company's history. Based on that experience, I hired Claudia to represent me when I needed an employment law expert. Claudia turned out to be responsive, extremely knowledgeable about employment law and kept me in the loop every step of the way. She was a great negotiator and provided the guidance I needed that resulted in a positive outcome. I was also impressed with her ability to work with me as a partner. She took my input and used it toward helping the situation. She is a great listener who uses good information to her advantage.
I felt very confident I was in good hands. I highly recommend Claudia for anyone or any company who needs legal representation for an employment law matter.

Claudia helped me through one of the darkest periods of my life when I felt stripped of all my professional and personal dignity. My personal circumstances of being a single mom were even used to threatened me by my former employer to harm my family. She was compassionate, empathetic and straight shooting.
Her incite to the very complicated legal process was something that could be trusted and relied upon. She is very hard working.
Claudia stands head and shoulders above her peers. I met with seven attorney groups prior to selecting her. She earned my trust by demonstrating good judgement and professional integrity consistently. My matter has resolved only because she stood by my side fighting with the tenacity of a warrior. The size of the corporation did not intimidate her.
My family and I are so thankful to Claudia for protecting us from the proverbial corporate bullying. She gave us the gift of peace of mind and a clean slate to be able to move forward in a positive healthy path.

My consultation was an extremely thorough process where I really saw how compassionate and detailed a person she was; she explained in great detail the risks, rewards, and expectations of the process I was entering into. I was going through a very difficult time with my past employer and she was there to offer guidance and support at any time of the day. My case was settled in a very timely manner and I am very happy with the outcome. I would not hesitate to use her services again and highly recommend her without reservation.

I met with Claudia shortly after being fired from a position I'd held for 12 years. She helped me with the shock by walking me through my experience of being employed by the company. She was looking for a basis of action. For me, it was therapeutic to recount the incidents that led to my termination. Her objectivity helped me see the ways in which my employer hadn't supported my success (to put it nicely). I found myself using much stronger language during the session.
Claudia clearly laid out my possible courses of action, the probability of each, the potential rewards and risks as well as her compensation structure. I knew that whatever course I chose, I would have a strong and concerned advocate on my side.
I highly recommend Claudia.

I have worked with Mr. Reis and her firm for the past 3 yrs.
During the consultation process you will immediately experience her compassion as she offers suggestions and guides you through the difficult situation you are dealing with. Her attention to detail, timely follow up and candid manner ensured me that I was well protected and represented.
Ms. Reis always went above and beyond to protect me legally. She is a very strong and tough (when necessary) advocate for the individual she represents. Her support staff is equally diligent.
I would recommend her without reservation.

My first consultation with Claudia I was a very upset about a 14 year job I was let go from. Right away she put me at ease about my situation. Everything was settled in a timely manner and with great results.
