Don't Waste your Time with this Lawyer
I hired Shaun Reid to help me fight a workplace discrimination case. Shaun suggested to file a complaint to Division of Human Right, and he ensured me that i will be protected against retaliation from my supervisor. In August of 2014, I received a position letter to dismiss my complaint due to no evidence of “adverse employment action" by Division of Human Right. After the dismissal, I was trying to reach Shaun, and he never respond back to me. I called his office, and left messages to his cell phone several times without any response. I spent $3,000 with Shaun's complaint letter, and one weak rebuttal letter. I could have written these two letters myself, and maybe getting better response. The worst thing is Shaun's disappearance. I got even more harassment from my supervisor after my initial complaint to Division of Human Right ! Now I am about to get fire, and I don't have enough money to hire another lawyer. Please don't waste your money on this lawyer.

Response from Shaun Reid March 17, 2015
It saddens me that you feel this way. I strive in every attorney-client relationship to help the client set reasonable expectations prior to starting any representation. I thought I had done so here. While ethical rules require that I not disclose client confidences, I will respond to this very harsh review with the facts, while maintaining your confidentiality. At the outset, I informed you that your case may have issues related to whether you suffered any “adverse employment actions” and I explained what that meant. However, for reasons I cannot disclose here, you wanted to file the complaint. You are correct that I told you that the law protects you from retaliation aimed at you due to you having filed a complaint. After your employer wrote a position statement unsurprisingly asserting its belief that you had not suffered any adverse employment actions, I wrote a rebuttal letter that you, contrary to your harsh review here, were quite pleased with as shown by your email to me: “Shaun, I've read your rebuttal letter. You are a brilliant lawyer! Thanks a lot and have a nice weekend! Best regards.” What has gone on since then is mostly a mystery to me because I believe I have been clear in speaking with you. We have spoken about your new claims of retaliation and I have told you why I will not file them (I cannot disclose those reasons here). I also note that several months after this negative review, you asked me to help you file another type of complaint, which I cannot disclose here, and I have declined, for reasons I cannot disclose here. I have done my best to address the issues raised in your negative review while maintaining client confidentiality and anonymity. While I empathize with anyone going through what they perceive as workplace harassment, the law limits what relief is available depending on your facts. As I have said to you, given your current facts I am unable to help you any further. Should the facts change, feel free to contact me. As much as I am hurt by your negative review, I am equally hurt by the fact that you continue to suffer at work. I wish there was more that I could do for you. I wish you all the best for the future.
