Very Helpful Experience Employment Attorney
There aren't enough words in the English Language to express how grateful I am to have had Borrelli and Associates P.L.L.C represent me on my employment matter. This was my first time needing an employment attorney. In this particular instance, I needed an employment attorney to follow up on a very difficult matter that warranted an extremely experienced firm that handled employment law. Mr. Michael Borrello, who is the Managing Attorney/Member of the firm assisted me on my case. He responded to each and every question I had and always gave me step by step updates on his communication with the other party. Although very difficult (lot of emotions from other side). Mr. Borrelli was able to settle the case in less than 90 days. I would highly recommend anyone who is seeking assistance with their employment matter to not hesitate on retaining the services of Borrelli and Associates PLLC. I would also like to add that all the employees at the firm that interacted with via phone and e mail were very generous, respectful and helpful. I really appreciate your help. Thank you again for your assistance Mr. Borrelli!

Amazing!
From our first conversation I felt very good about the case that I had. He was very open and explained to me all of my options throughout the process. The other party was extremely unprofessional and hard to deal with but that didn’t stop Michael from doing his best and getting me the compensation, I deserved. I would recommend him to anyone!

I’m so happy I found this attorney firm!!
I started looking for an attorney to represent me on my case right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, but things started looking not too bright because I couldn’t find the right attorney to take my case. Thankfully, I found NELA, National Employment Lawyers Association and recommended me Borrelli and associates firm and after that there was not more search for any other attorney firm. I contacted Borrelli firm and they took my case and gave me hope during my stressful situation. They started working on my case right away and kept in touch with me at all times. They informed me of anything they needed and kept me up to date during the whole process. Michael, Pablo, Sidney and the entire crew was very attentive and responsive with any inquiry I had. Even during the slow time with the pandemic, Borrelli firm worked hard and fast on my case to have a positive outcome. I definitely recommend this firm to anyone who needs help and those who think there is not hope out there with their case, this is the law firm to go. They are very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I’m very happy i found them and above all because they won my case. Finally, Pablo and Michael, since I spoke with you most of the time, thank you so much for the constant contact with me and hard work, you guys are amazing. Also, thank you Sidney for your positive attention and entire team. :)

Gratitude in my attitude!! It is my upmost pleasure to recommend Borrelli & Associates, to anyone being discriminated against by their employer. This firm has fought for me diligently leaving no stone unturned; during a time and season when it counts most in this Country. Hostile work environment and verbal abuse is no longer tolerated in the workplace. BLACKS LIVES MATTTER. Kudos to Kerry and Alex and the entire Borrelli Team. Sharon GD.

As good as a "lawsuit" can be!
This was my first lawsuit and had no experience with how to proceed with such a serious matter. I opted to contact a firm within my locality and had no prior knowledge of this particular choice. I got lucky with choosing Borrelli & Associates and am eternally grateful for the experience they delivered. My personal attorney was Jeffery R. Maguire and he is extremely, knowledgeable, respectful, intuitive and professional. Aside from those critical attributes in a lawyer, he is naturally relate-able, understanding and comfortable to work with. I immediately felt confident and my situation would be handled correctly. I'm not that familiar with law practice and the ever changing exceptions, protocols, bells and whistles, etc. that can make or break a case. Mr. Maguire was always two steps ahead of the game which I found quite impressive and immediately helped me feel more relaxed. A true talent. My particular matter was riddled with difficult time delays, medical issues and other distracting dilemmas. Never once did Mr. Maguire show impatience or frustration with any of this, which I admired and appreciated. I could tell he had a vast education of law and a solid record of being involved with a multitude of cases. I applaud his ability in adapting to the unsavory specifics of my case and always felt that despite how small my claim was, my case was always valued. He is particularly skilled working in a mediation setting. The chemistry he has working alongside colleagues is distinguishable and displays a certain confidence. Watching him work, sparked a genuine interest in all things law-related in me. :) Is it okay to say the entire procedure left me learning something? Again, much more than I was expecting. Any time I was a participant in group discussion, I was never treated in any condescending or irrelevant way. (Despite much of the terminology and specifics going WAY over my head!) Eye contact was always made and I was encouraged to interrupt if I felt the need. I felt no need. My instincts knew I was under exceptional care. I wish to sincerely thank Mr. Maguire for his relentless devotion to my case. Most of all, I would like to thank him for the often overlooked humanity he brings to the field of law in general. He is an outstanding counsel and I recommend contacting him if you need representation, advice, and most of all- SUCCESS!

Professional
We came to this firm because as employees we felt that we were getting an raw deal from our employer but I had no idea what was involved. Borrelli and Associates handled out case with the State Attorney's office and as a result we received a very good payday. This was a long process and never once did I asked a question and didn't get an immediate response. Thank everyone that was involved in my case.

Found a great law firm in time of need!
I have nothing but glowing things to say about the law firm of Borrelli & Associates. From the receptionists to the paralegals to the lawyers themselves, they are a class act. The lawyer who handled my case, Caitlin Duffy, was professional, affable, and very knowledgeable. Of special note is how she made me feel like she actually cared about the outcome of the case and didn’t treat me like just another litigant. She was honest with me about expectations from day one, kept in phone and email contact with me, and fought for me when it seemed like an impasse had been reached. The qualities the firm possesses cannot be purchased with money and has to come from within. They know one of the fundamental secrets to having a successful business, which is to keep the customer, in this case, client, happy. I’ve already referred one person to their firm and will continue to refer anyone I know who is in need of legal counsel.

Borrelli is my team
My name is Jakwan Rivers. I was a long time NYC employee of the NYCHA and a Union official of Teamsters local 237 representing city employees. As I opposed the treatment of the members by city and union officials, I decided that in order to change the way business was done, was to run for president of the union and affect change and as a result, I became a target of both interties for retaliation. After exhausting all internal lawful interties and exorcising all internal rights to protect myself against all opposing parties and retaliation from NYC and Union officials, I was left with no other alternative but to seek out specialized attorneys who totally understood the general makeup of city and union policies. My case was extremely unique which required a law firm that also specializes in retaliation including 1st and 14th amendment rights which many law firms lack all combined specialties. After months of consideration, research and investigating, all roads led to Borrelli and associates P.L.L.c. After consultation, I was pleased and excited that the associates of Borrelli totally understood my situation and immediately devised a plan of action. As a union official/city employee, I've had the privilege of working with many attorneys from all walks of law and I must say, their focus, commitment and professionalism was above and beyond what was expected. Borrelli Team kept me informed, Updated and I was totally involved in the entire process as part of the team. The Borrelli Team vigorously addressed the issues at hand and represented my case superbly. AIthough we was unsuccessful in achieving our goal, there's nothing that wasn't addressed or unrepresented in my opinion. I would like to personally thank Mike Borrelli and the Borrelli team for a job well done. Best Regards,

Kenneth W. - Absolutely The Best!!!
I live just outside of Austin, TX. I searched over 30 law firms before finding Borrelli & Associates in Great Neck, New York. I liked their website and reviews, plus they came highly recommended as experts representing federal employees. I retained their services for two years. During that time, I received outstanding legal counsel, excellent customer service, and peace of mind. I was always able to reach my assigned attorney either by phone or email. She processed all of my legal documents in a timely and professional manner. She also kept me in the loop whenever she spoke with the Agency’s Attorney and EEOC Administrative Judge. Overall, I was very pleased with the positive legal outcome and their fair detailed billing process. If you are looking for a 10 out of 10 outcome with your legal case, I strongly suggest Borrelli & Associates as your one and only choice for the greater New York Area.

Awesome lawyer!!!
Michael J. Borrelli is perhaps one of the greatest lawyers I have dealt with. It is easy to tell that he and his firm cares about each case and is passionate about what they do. My case was handled with the upmost care and efficiency. They helped ease my concerns about litigation and was there to give me valuable advise about settlement. I was never pressured into taking a settlement nor to go to trial. My options were very clear and easy to make all thanks to him.
