About me

Potential clients call me to discuss employment matters at no charge for the first 15 minutes.  We can usually quickly determine whether or not the employee or former employee has a potential claim.


 


If you are still speaking with the attorney after 15 minutes that conversation may last an hour or longer.  If you speak with the attorney for longer than an hour then you may agree to schedule an office consultation.


 


Employment cases require an incredible amount of time in order to secure the resolution a potential client truly wants.


 


Whether your case involves wage and hour issues, FLSA, discrimination prohibited by the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII claims including hostile work environment or sexual harassment, negotiating a more favorable severance package, unemployment compensation, EEOC charging documents, the New York State Division of Human Rights or the New York City Human Rights Law you will be best served by hiring an attorney whose practice is almost exclusively employment law oriented.


 


It is not unusual for Jonas' clients to have called him several times before they ever meet him in person.  If you are unable to confirm or establish some type of respect and hopefully trust with your lawyer before you hire them to help you with a very important matter such as an employment issue then you should probably keep looking for the right attorney.


 


Remember that in many ways hiring an employment lawyer is like getting married. Your case will hopefully not last a lifetime but being in a bad relationship with your employment lawyer can feel almost as bad as being in a bad marriage with your spouse.  Make the right choice and call Jonas to see whether he's someone you will want to talk with for the next several months or years.
