Excellent Employment Lawyer
Professional, Ethical, Hard-working, mentoring = those are the 4 words I can use to characterize this law practice. I started working with Mary a few years ago when I needed her to review a contract for me which was being breached. Not only did Mary get me out of the contract, but we received damages I never would have thought possible. She worked extremely hard and professionally with the other party, and was very efficient with our time and her hours. Because of my extremely good experience with Mary, I hired her again for multiple matters, most extensively in employment law and contract law. Mary's work is bullet proof. It is so impeccable that when I hand it over to the other party, their lawyers have nothing further they could add or delete since it is done to such level of perfection. With Mary, no question is "dumb", no concern is "annoying". I've worked with lawyers who are charging close to $1000 an hour and act annoyed when you ask them a small follow-up question. And at the end, both Mary and those "fancy" lawyers all reached the same conclusions for me. So it's simple math, 1+1=2. When something is cheaper, with the same results, why would you bother with the more expensive lawyers when you can get someone who is almost like an angel to you while being a winning lawyer?
