Would never work with anyone else
Carolyne Kalson is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, caring and gets results! Came to her after my employment contract was breached and a bonus was being withheld. She not only addressed my immediate concerns but combed through my contract and found additional areas that were either unfair or overly excessive and thus unenforceable by NJ state law. I could not be more pleased by the outcome! Highly, highly, recommend!!!

The Best Employment & Labor Lawyer
Carolyne Kalson was my lawyer for a case that others told me to forget, but because Carolyne is a very knowledgeable Lawyer in Employment and Labor Laws she took on my case and from the beginning she listened and was honest (which is very rare in the lawyer field). I knew from the day I met her she was going to help me and I was right. It took almost 2 years she worked hard and at times I thought it would not happen, she never gave up and now I cant Thank her enough. If you are looking for a lawyer that is knowledgeable, responsible, notable and sincere, don’t look any further you have found all of it in Carolyne Kalson. I found a great lawyer and I would recommend her to everyone who needs an Employment & Labor Lawyer

Excellent Attorney
Always prepared. Honest and upfront with her clients. Carolyne also cares about her clients and there families during the often difficult times during a legal case. I have needed her services on several occasions and she has always delivered as promised.

Quick and Painless
Ms Kalson let me know what to expect right from the beginning, and she delivered on every expectation. Employment cases can often drag on, but Ms Kalson was able to quickly get this resolved fairly. I would highly recommend her.

An excellent attorney with a personal side
I needed a great attorney in a workman comp suit and Carolyne came highly recommended from another co-worker. From the initial meeting with her, I knew that she was the right lawyer! Her contact with me thru my cases was nothing less then stellar! She kept me up to date on the process, coordinated my doctor visits and helped me receive a VERY fair settlement! I highly recommend Carolyne!!

Simply the BEST!
Carolyne Kalson is simply the BEST! You will not find a Lawyer who is more dedicated to her Work and Clients then Carolyne! She is precise, smart and gets the job done! I have had several reasons I needed a Lawyer and Carolyne was the only one for me! I met her when I was getting divorced and she made it quick and easy! I went back to her when I had an accident at work and she handled my Workman’s Compensation case which settled in a short year and a half…again no problems as Carolyne took care of everything! My next meeting with Carolyne was to petition for Guardianship for my disabled 18 year old son which I was advised was not always so smooth….However, Carolyne once again took care of everything and before I knew it the papers were signed in the Court for me to go pick up! Next, Carolyne handled my disability appeal of which from research and speaking to Carolyne, can be an 18-24 month process. I do not know how Carolyne does it, but 2 and a half months later I was approved without any issues or crazy paperwork! Carolyne is currently handling another case for me involving a road rage incident I had with a tractor trailer. I am so impressed by her knowledge on handling this big case and have to say when I read the letters she has written to the Trucking Company that I sit there in pure content that she is getting this job done! Many people go through life never needing an Attorney, but if you do, look no further as Carolyne is the only one you will ever need! I want to mention Deb who works for Carolyne and is fantastic! She always gets back to me quickly! Thank you both from the bottom of my heart!

A caring and compassionate attorney
Attorney Carolyne Kalson did a great job with our case. The caring and compassionate way she handled a very difficult subject matter meant so much to us. We would definitely contact her again for help in other legal matters, should the need arise.

Excellent Attorney
Ms Kalson was recommended by another Attorney. From the moment I met her she made me feel comfortable and confident that she would handle my case with my prior employer. She was very professional and helpful and informed me additional areas of the law which expanded my case. I was very happy with my outcome and it was resolved faster than I expected. Definitely would recommend.

Your Best Employment Law Attorney
Carolyne Kalson, Esq is an excellent attorney who cares about her clients. From the moment I met with her during the initial consultation, she listened attentively, asked appropriate questions, and appreciated the unethical work practices at my former place of employment. She agreed to take my case. She understood the ramifications related to my profession. She is a highly articulate individual who can also write as well as she speaks. She explained the legal implications re: my case, the pros and cons of litigation versus settlement. She is definitely an advocate for her clients. I highly recommend Carolyne Kalson, Esq for anyone who has a work related issue.

Look No Further - She's who you need for any employment issues.
I found Mrs. Kalson by calling the BAR Association in my area due to being let go while on Family Leave for a surgery and I wasn't sure if I should sign what they gave me. She is amazing and ended up getting me 5x more than the severance package. Then I was denied unemployment after being in the hospital and let go at another job and once again she came through and I was awarded my unemployment plus the back pay. While going over the case she saw another problem and got me a decent amount of money in a settlement. Found money actually since I had no idea there was even a problem. She is absolutely wonderful as a person and an attorney. She is very laid back and treats you with the same respect she is given from you. If someone would have told me several years ago that I would need an attorney, then need her again a few years later I wouldn't have believed it but she always comes through and is also very honest about what chances you have. If you are fired or leave your job for any reason you should NEVER sign anything for severance or anything else until you have an attorney look at your situation and she is without a doubt the one to go to. Finding her was one of the best things that happened to me and I have learned so much about employment laws as well. So give her a chance. I promise you won't regret it.

Excellent Attourney
Carlolyne Kalson is an experienced aggressive Attourney who makes sure the client receives what is theirs by right. She worked quickly and efficiently to see my disability claim that was denied overturned. I can't thank her and her administrative assistant Debbie enough.

Great Lawyer
Carolyne Kalson took on my case which turned out to be a complex case. the case took 3 years to go to trial. The other side refused to settle and didn't seem to take things seriously. Along the way Carolyn explained everything and every step that was taken and why in a way I could understand. After a 3 day trial we received a verdict in our favor. I would highly recommend Carolyne Kalson.

Successful wrongful termination suit
Ms. Kalson listened well during the initial interview. She thoroughly understood my case. She set aside personal time to meet with me to accommodate my schedule. She saw me through two years of legal battle on a wrongful termination suit. This included having to travel long distances for two mediations and a lengthy deposition. She was consistently polite but forceful in dealing with the opposing attorney. She kept me well informed on the progress of the case. Ms. Kalson succeeded in negotiating a very satisfactory settlement for me. I highly recommend her to any one who needs legal assistance.
