Severance Agreement
I can't recommend them highly enough. Ari thought of things to put into the severance agreement that I never would have thought of. He ended up saving me thousands of dollars.

Unemployment Case
When I got initially denied in my unemployment case I was absolutely lost at what to do. Luckily enough, I found Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C. They immediately took over for me and helped me as I walked through this confusing process. Samantha’s compassion and understanding gave me the biggest sigh of relief. She asked every question possible and helped me get to the hearing process where… I WON. She helped me get the decision reversed. I cannot thank Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C enough. MY SAVIORS.

Caring and invested with a balance of strength and grace
I recently had an opportunity to work with Ari regarding an adverse employment situation with a public university in Pennsylvania. There are so many things that stand out from my meetings with him. 1) Following my call to his firm, he initially contacted me on a Sunday which worked great for my schedule - I loved his availability. 2) He was personally invested in the assessment of my situation and did a great job asking questions about the circumstances of my case without giving false hope about the strength of my case. He was matter-of-fact and specific. 3) He took incredibly copious notes. About a month passed between my initial phone call with him and me ultimately hiring Ari to assist in navigating my situation. When we met for the second time, I was amazed at the thoroughness and recollection of the details of my case and we were able to get right into the heart of the decision making about how to move forward. And once I hired him we met almost immediately. There was no dust gathering as I worried about my situation. He was action oriented with the goal of moving to resolution. 4) He was clearly willing to do the work necessary to achieve success, but he also suggested ways to move forward that were less threatening to my employer and allowed me to achieve a satisfactory outcome that was timely, financially beneficial, and wasn't litigious. 5) He used his expert knowledge and experience to assess my situation in a way that allowed me to understand the strengths and weaknesses of my situation and what the most appropriate path forward would be. 6) He consistently checked during the course of our conversation to assess my level of comprehension. 7) He uses great analogies that can make a complicated topic understandable. 8) My situation was resolved rather quickly and did not require significant time. Had we needed to approach the situation in a more aggressive manner, I loved knowing Ari was in my corner and working on my behalf. He was strong, confident and competent in his approach to my case and I have every belief he would have arrived at an even more beneficial resolution to my claims were it necessary to do so. I give Ari the highest recommendation and strongly encourage you to retain him as your attorney should you find yourself in need of legal representation when dealing with an employment situation. I'm incredibly thankful for his guidance and counsel and you will be too.

The best lawyer ever met.
Before working with Mr. Ari Karpf, I didn't know that good lawyers really existed, he was very active in my case from day one, I was totally informed about every action on the matter, I cannot say enough for what he did to me, thank you. The prices were very fair and he studied the case very well including all details. He was very responsive, I really appreciate working with him. I recommend him for everybody looking for a real serious lawyer to trust for achieving legal victory.

Ari Karpf is an Elite Attorney
I hired Mr. Ari Karpf to serve as my legal counsel for a wage dispute with my employer. Karpf is an attentive, intelligent, and diligent attorney who did exactly what I asked of him and more. Mr. Karpf went above and beyond to answer my questions before, during, and after taking me as a client. His 20+ years of experience practicing employment and labor, wrongful termination, and discrimination law served me well as he was already familiar with hundreds of cases similar to mine which led to a prompt solution to my dispute. If you are looking for an attorney, I highly recommend setting up a consultation with Mr. Karpf or his equally competent partners.

He amazing.
He was an amazing lawyer. He fought tooth and nail to help me get the most out of my case. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney to represent me for my case. He has answered every email I have sent him and he has gone above and beyond for me. I’m so thankful to have had the honor of meeting and working with me.Karpf

Hostile Work Environment?? Call Ari!
I had received good references and reviews from several former clients of Ari Karpf and his firm, Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C. My circumstances were different in that I was a contract agent and my principal was in violation of the contract, treating me as an employee without the rights or the benefits. After giving notice of termination of the contract the company became quite hostile, aggressive and began making threats through their lawyer. I contacted Ari and after my initial consultation I was convinced I had made the right choice for representation. I found him to be incredibly knowledgeable of the law, professional and responsive as well as reasonable in his rates. The representation I received was far above and beyond my expectations. My mistake was not contacting him a year before when my principal began violating the contract. I strongly recommend Ari to any employee or independent contractor feeling trapped in a hostile work environment and being taken advantage of or mistreated by their employer/principal to contact the firm and the earlier the better. If legal action is necessary you will not find better representation than Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C.

Exceptional
I hired Ari to handle a severance agreement with a previous employer. I did so based on the fact that the firm I originally hired got off to a very rough start in my negotiations. The contentious negotiations actually got worse from there, with the company threatening to retract all monetary compensation and even to threaten legal action - prompting me to switch my representation to Ari. Immediately, there was a change in not only tone (much more empathy, much less "clubiness" with opposing attorneys), but more importantly, Ari immediately showed a willingness to be aggressive and fight, given that my position was definitely defensible. This was exactly what was needed. As Ari mentioned to me several times, he emphasizes results - and that was exactly what he achieved. Not only did I wind up with a successful outcome in terms of a severance agreement, but when I later wound up in a billing dispute with the firm I went with originally, Ari reached a satisfactory outcome there as well. Throughout, Ari himself - no associates or paralegals - handled all interactions with me. He was highly accessible, even after hours and on weekends. Even in some very tense discussions regarding the negotiations, he managed to keep me calm, and often flashed a sense of humor that I found extremely refreshing. I would highly recommend Ari and his firm for any legal work regarding employment issues. Since I was in a unique position to be able to compare, I found Ari's approach superior to that of a well-known employment firm in the area, who clearly was larger and more well-resourced (and charged accordingly). Ari's ability to empathize, and his unabashed willingness to fight hard for his clients is second to none. Going forward, his firm will be my "go to" for any legal issues related to employment law - without question.

Labor and Employment
Working with attorney Ari Karpf was a great experience. Ari made the process so easy as he understood my entire situation on a call and was flexible with further meetings (Emails and Phone calls). Ari made sure that I got my final compensation paid even before initiating the litigation process. Overall I was very happy and will definitely recommend Ari Karpf of Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C. firm for any Labor and Employment related issues.

Highly Recommend!
Ari is an incredible attorney and I would recommend him and his firm to anyone. He is thoughtful, caring, patient, and relentless in his pursuit for justice for clients. He spent a lot of time patiently listening to the facts of my case without pressuring me to hire him or to take legal action. It was important to him that I felt comfortable before making any decisions, and once I did, he worked tirelessly to get me a fair settlement. His professionalism and personal commitment to me was incredible and led to a very favorable outcome. If you are looking for an honest, hardworking, and knowledgeable attorney who cares about you, then I would highly recommend working with Ari and his wonderful team.

Unemployment
Ari and his team assisted me with two situations. Unemployment and Non-Compete/Solicitation. Positive outcomes regarding both. The team at Karpf, Karpf, and Cerutti are professional, timely, patient, and have a thorough understanding how to apply employment law. Did I mention how timely they were?

Best employment attorney, BAR NONE!!
I retained Ari Karpf after firing a different attorney who was not very engaged or responsive with my case. I truly wished I would have initially with Ari and his firm; because from A to Z (consultation to resolution of my case), Mr. Karpf displayed expansive knowledge of all aspects of employment law. He is EXTREMELY responsive; passionate; and explained everything honestly to me in layman’s terms every step of the way. I am elated with the results of my case, and always felt comfortable having Mr. Karpf fighting for my rights. This is the ONLY firm that I would retain if I encountered a situation as I did with my former employer, because Ari Karpf is an amazing lawyer; and the results speak for themselves!

Best Lawyer, he will answer your calls and work for you!
Ari R Karpf listened to the issues I had with my employer and took my case. Ari answered my calls amd called me to give me updates about my case. Ari showed compassion, empathy and concern by assuring me he will get my case resolved. Ari worked really hard to get me a settlement while giving me updates throughout the process. I enjoyed working with Ari because he listened to my frustrations and he made himself available Thank you Ari!!!

Highly recommend
Mr. Karpf is an extremely intelligent and professional attorney who I trust completely. I have obtained his services to represent me in a wrongful termination lawsuit. I honestly believed there was little chance for success however Mr. Karpf had the ability and expertise to succeed. I can wholeheartedly give him my highest recommendation.
