I worked with Ari Graff on an employment matter. I appreciated his expertise, and his calm and professional manner- as employment issues can be stressful. He also was exceptionally available via email and phone, during the back-and-forth on final issues, within time-limited deadlines. I know he had other clients, but he made sure I knew when he could get back to me- he clearly was working late evenings and weekends. All of this was done for the initial fee- there were no additional costs - and I knew that if the work had gone further- the fees would have been reasonable. I would highly recommend him to others.

Ari was always on top of my case. He returned my calls right away and always kept me updated with the latest information. He provided me good recommendations and options. He was knowledgable and fought for my rights. I'm satisfied with the outcome in the time he was able to negotiate settlement. He is a good lawyer and I trust that he did the best he could for my case. At the end I'm happy with the results Thanks to Ari's hard work.

Ari was responsive and seemed to take a genuine interest in my case, and in making sure that I was fully informed and understood my options, risks and possible benefits throughout. He clearly knows what he's doing, and was able to get a better outcome than I anticipated (or thought to be possible) in drafting and negotiating my separation agreement with my former employer, as well as my employment agreement for my new job. I highly recommend him without reservation.
