Hanan Isaacs is an intelligent, compassionate, reasonbable and superbly effective attorney. It had come to a period in my life that I was recently widowed, a completely new empty nester, and was receiving pressure from my employer to comply with unreasonable demands, Hanan and I met, laid out a strategy and successfully followed it. Hanan handled all communication and negotiations with my former employer. He established a very credible relationship with my former employer's GC which resulted in a quick resolution of my situation. Hanan's calm and confident demeanor reduced the stressfullness of my dilemma. Hanan Issacs is a total professional and delivered what I had sought in someone to represent me.

I can't say enough about Hanan, but little over a year ago, my life changed for the worse. I was falsely accused, and charged with pretty serious issues. I searched and interviewed several attorneys, and Hanan was the last appointment that day. I was absolutely devastated at some of the advice I had received earlier in the day and was expecting to hear more of the same as I waited to meet with Hanan. I explained the accusations to him and he listened with empathy and got right on the phone and started working on my case before I even signed a retainer agreement; and has continued to do just that. He was very understanding and never once made me feel like this was just another case. He made me feel like this was just as important to him as it was to me. This situation have been a life changing event for me and my family. I'm confident that this matter will be resolved soon. I will not trust my life to anyone else but, Hanan and his team. He was exactly what I needed, a fierce, yet compassionate mediator & negotiator.

I found Hanan to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful in guiding me through the separation process from a company where I worked for 12 years. Additionally he was able to gain a 30% increase in my $ severance package plus increasing the length of time that benefits would be available. I don't think I could have achieved the same result on my own.

Hanan handled an employment law issue for me and did an excellent job. We didn't have much to work with, and Hanan was honest with me about the best approach (Hanan counseled me to avoid litigation as the expense would not be justified). The most important aspect of Hanan's work for me was that Hanan approached my company in the manner we agreed upon: respectfully, cordially, and with the clear intent of coming to a mutually agreeable conclusion. I believe it was this approach that eventually resulted in an improved severance package from my company. Being aggressive or pushy would have most likely resulted in being rebuffed by the company.
Hanan was very communicative - as anyone facing legal matters can tell you, having your lawyer check in and let you know that they're awaiting feedback from the other party, that they're working on X and will get back to you by a certain date, etc, is invaluable and certainly puts the mind at ease.
Hanan has a great sense of humor and isn't afraid to be himself with his clients - he comes across as very genuine and likeable. For me, this is important as I don't like the wall that some lawyers put up between themselves and their clients. Hanan addresses you as an equal and a partner in the legal matter.
I honestly appreciated working with Hanan and would 100% go back to him again for any future employment issues and/or recommend him to friends and family. I'd also like to comment that his staff were very cordial, professional and made sure that everything was scheduled and organized for us.
EXCELLENT LAWYER, GOOD PERSON, GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!!

After being wrongfully terminated I turned to Hanan Isaacs and his legal team. He guided me through the legal process and gave me the confidence to fight back. He and his team assisted me with putting my case together and gave me the professional support I needed during the litigation process.
I enjoyed working with Hanan Isaacs and I would not hesitate in recommending him to my family and friends. If you find yourself needing expert legal advice, turn to the law team I trusted with my family, Hanan Isaacs.

While ultimately Mr. Isaacs was unable to help me through no fault of his own but, my personal fiances he responded to me numerous times. I appreciate all the time he took and I respect his ultimate decision. If I could afford he would definelty be my number 1 choice.

I write to express just how grateful I am to my attorney, Hanan Isaacs. Last year I reached out to approximately 50 New Jersey attorneys, sending a letter to explain my recent employment termination. I strongly felt that I was wrongfully terminated, but wasn’t sure if there were grounds for a lawsuit based on my unusual facts. Of the lawyers who replied, most said how terrible it was that an employer would terminate me under such circumstances, but declined to accept my case based on “no precedent”. Some attorneys expressed mild interest. After I received a return phone call from Hanan Isaacs, I knew I had found the attorney I wanted to represent me. Hanan was so knowledgeable with employment law, and he stayed on the phone with me, researching and discussing how he might approach filing a case for me. It felt great to have him in my corner. Hanan was not only empathic, he was determined to see that I was compensated for what he believed was an unjust termination that caused me extreme hardship. Hanan is not only a very competent attorney, but he is so humane in his approach and how he dealt with me. He never gave me false hope, and he never gave up. In the end, he was able to have the case mediated and settled for an amount that benefited me far more than it did his firm or him. Hanan looked out for my best interests and was able to accomplish what other attorneys told me could NOT be done.
Hanan treated me like a family member rather than a client. He never rushed me off the phone when I called and would frequently email me, or have his highly competent staff contact me, with updates on my case. He never forgot about me or my case, he remembered every detail, and he made me feel important. I had to write this letter because when you are in a situation where you need an attorney to handle your case, finding the right attorney is the most important thing. Hanan was the right lawyer for me.

I have worked for the Federal Government for approximately 24 years, and had never had conflicts with anyone. In fact I was one of only a few select "experts" in my field. I dedicated my life to public service and was proud to represent my country as an employee in a critical safety area that involved the flying public. An incident occurred that put me and my first level manager into a conflict and from that moment forward he decided to retaliate against me. I contacted Hanan Isaacs in 2009 for advice on how to proceed with hostile work environment issues and for representation when I was ultimately terminated from my employer for a conflict of interest claim. From the first time I had met Hanan I could tell he was a true professional and committed to helping me. We spent many hours discussing my situation and Hanan was there every step of the way to act as my advocate. My termination invoked a grievance against the Federal Government which ultimately led to an arbitration and 9 days of hearings, During the hearings Hanan testified to what he had personally witnessed as part of the investigation with the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and to how an investigation is supposed to look at factual evidence prior to reaching a conclusion. When Hanan testified it became obvious that his many years of experience as a seasoned attorney added the most value to my hearing and ultimately my winning the case. It was this testimony that made the unobvious to so many in the Federal Government become a matter of fact. I strongly believe that this was a major contribution to winning my case. Bad things happen to good people every day. I would not wish what I had to go through on anyone. However I still believe that anyone who believes strongly in their convictions when events like what I had to endure are worth fighting, even if it is the Federal Government and the odds are stacked against you. Having an attorney like Hanan made all the difference in the world.

I wanted to express my gratitude to you and your staff for working so hard to win my employment case. Your skill in “compassion and tough advocacy” was very much appreciated. This was a very sensitive and stressful time for me. You spent quality time with me and I never felt rushed. You also listened to all the fine details in my case which ultimately you won for me. Hanan, you are an excellent listener, a fine attorney and human being.
Again, I wanted to send my heartfelt thanks.

Hanan, and his exceptional team, have been outstanding advocates for myself and my three young children. I went to him when I knew a divorce was in my future (after receiving a recommendation from a colleague) and have depended on his counsel ever sense. He was accessible and forthright but most importantly fought for the safety of my children. I will forever be in his debt.
