Excellent Service
I called and spoke directly to Jacob which makes his experience very personable and exactly what I was looking for. We had a discussion about my case prior to even scheduling a consultation at no cost. Guidance was provided as well as clarity. Very knowledgeable on all unemployment and employment matters. Highly recommended for reliability and fast service as well.

Wonderful to Work With
Mr. Korder helped me obtain all the monies owed me by an employer who refused to pay. He was a consummate professional and clearly knows his stuff. I recommend him without reservation.

Exceptional
Jacob’s representation was not only professional, and efficient; but it was concise and highly effective. Jacob offered his time to ensure the circumstances of my case were as clear and accurate as possible, and he assembled a case more powerful than I could have imagined. He protected my individual rights in spades.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
Professionalism personified. His communication throughout the entire process is what allowed the case to go in the direction in which it did. He really went above and beyond. Typically in an unemployment case the burden of proof rest solely on the employer to prove misconduct.. With his assistance we were able to prove, not only wasn't there any misconduct but a policy had not been violated. This case for me was more then just monetary gain. He got me my NAME back. Which I will always be eternally grateful. *"Accordingly, I find that the claimant did not violate the employer's cash register policy, did not violate the employer's policy regarding misuse of an employee, and the claimant did not violate the employer's policy on falsifying company documents and was separated from his employment under non disqualifying circumstances."*

Professional and Effective
Mr. Korder was hired to represent me in a hearing regarding the termination of my unemployment insurance by NYS DOL. On first communication Mr. Korder was open and honest about his policies and his decision making when determining to take the case. He spent plenty of time with me preparing for the tele-hearing, informing me and compiling what documents may be useful to my case, and walked me through step by step how the hearing would work. Because of his thorough research of previous cases and the time he spent with me, my ruling was reversed and I was able to receive all backpay of unemployment as well as continuing claims. Mr. Korder turned a nightmare scenario into a huge win and made the entire hearing process incredibly easy.

Jacob helped draft a settlement agreement with an employee, which cut through any emotion and arrived at an acceptable agreement. All with a minimum of wasted time.
