I had all but given up on getting money back from a bum client. Liz's approach to the situation was positive and refreshing. She made a fair deal with them quick and painless. (I had spent two years going after them to little avail.) I will ALWAYS go with Liz in the future and can't recommend her more highly.

Elizabeth's ability to pay close attention to detail and to extricate and explain to me what the important issues were was crucial in my case.
I highly recommend her.

Ms. Franqui provided me with counsel during my layoff. Her analytical, research, communication, and interpersonal skills were considerable. Not only did she provide great services, but she also was a reassuring presence during a difficult time.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
When client resources were unable to provide an answer to a pressing employment law matter, Liz was prompt, accurate and articulate in explaining the legal issues and I was able to provide my client with the correct answer in no time. I greatly appreciate that Liz made my client's concerns a priority. Her knowledge and professionalism are superb.

I highly recommend Elizabeth Franqui as an exceptional employment law attorney. When I was in need of counsel regarding my rights as an employee, Liz gave me excellent advice. She was knowledgeable, honest, and compassionate. While my circumstances were such that I did not need to retain an attorney at the time, I would definitely retain Ms. Franqui's legal services should they ever be needed in the future.
