PA Employment Client
Attorney Charles Lamberton came highly recommended to me as a lawyer who really knows employment law and I am happy to say that is an understatement. I was immediately impressed with his indepth knowledge of case law and his explanations of how those cases related to my situation. My case is still active and I have great confidence in his ability to represent me because of his professionalism, the many hours he has dedicated to my case and his knowledge of the law. My case has been continuing for a long time and Mr. Lamberton still maintains the same high level of interest and enthusium in my case as the first day I began working with him. He has always kept me informed of activities related to my case and responds to my questions in a very timely manner. I am very pleased with my decision to have Mr. Lamberton represent me and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs legal representation in an employment/labor case.

Bias
During consultation, the lawyer was mainly concerned with the name of the company he would have to go after, the corporate title of the person and the age of the parties involved to dismiss the case. He did not bother with listening to all circumstances and events. I was able to bring justice to my case and prevent other women from suffering what I had suffered in an environment which it's supposed to be safe and professional.
