With Gratitude
I was very fortunate to have Noel Crowley represent me in my wrongful termination case. He took my case all the way to the Supreme Court with confidence and professionalism. Noel, ( and his son Michael) believed in my case and with their strong knowledge of the law and their pursuit of justice spent many late hours, months and even years to win my case. Noel did not treat me like a client, he treated me with kindness and understanding like family. I could never thank him enough and would highly recommend him with no hesitation.

Noel Crowley, Employment Law Expert
My experience as a client of Noel Crowley has been very positive. His ability to quickly grasp the essence of and act on employment law situations is extraordinary. I thought I'd seen masterfully written letters before, but these paled in comparison to Noel's artful & persuasive wordsmithing.

Noel C. Crowley, a brilliant thinker and writer, a lawyer with integrity and compassion
Noel Crowley is an exceptionally brilliant thinker and writer and an honest and straightforward attorney. I am in awe of his ability to present arguments that are not only luminously clear -- but even literary. For me, he has been able to transform a highly complex set of facts and circumstances and tell the story with wit, clarity, and iron-clad arguments grounded firmly in case law. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney in matters related to descrimination, sexual harassment, breach of contract, tortious interference, and whistleblower protection. Noel and his son Mike Crowley are honest, caring and decent. They are lawyers who truly care about the people they represent. We need more lawyers like Noel and Mike Crowley! MaryLynn
