Robin Bond provided the expertise to navigate my workforce severance agreement in an efficient and very effective manner. When I found out that I was being severed due to a reduction in force (resulting from a corporate reorganization), I was overwhelmed with the legal document before me.
After an initial consultation, Robin provided a very clear list of suggested changes to my severance package. I was offered the option of proceeding on my own, or continuing to pay for her services until I reached a satisfactory agreement. I attempted to proceed on my own and quickly realized that I was unable to reach agreement on nearly every point of contention on my own. Robin was supportive throughout, providing very timely responses to my many questions, and proceeded to pick up where I left off with my employer's corporate lawyer.
Robin's style is something that helped alleviate my stress - she is very calm and thorough in her explanation of both the law and her strategy in extricating me out of my tenuous situation. Robin listened very carefully to my concerns and actively sought to understand my history with the company. Her ideas were creative and effective - she thought of solutions that I had not even considered, and she negotiated skillfully. In the end, Robin not only worked out every issue that we sought to improve (and there were many), she was able to help me negotiate the time and resources needed to devote to a job search.
I found a much better job as a result of Robin's abilities with a company that fits my needs much better. To top it all off, Robin's knowledge of the compensation landscape and her negotiation savvy helped me to receive a better contract for my new job. I highly recommend Robin Bond and her firm's services for anybody seeking legal support to resolve employee-employer conflicts, and for expertise in job-transitioning, including contract negotiation.

Robin Bond is knowledgeable and pleasant - definitely not the type of attorney who will race your engine when that is not needed.
She reviews contracts word by word and makes insightful and useful changes.
When all is said and done, given the importance of contracts for individuals in new employment situations, consulting and FTE, trying to read and process the legalese on your own does not make sense. While you can review what is written, unless you are well-schooled, you cannot see what is missing or where the contract writer has sought quiet advantage.
Let Robin do that for you.
Down the road her fee will appear small compared with the costs of your own errors.

Robin help me with a very complex and detailed employment agreement. She worked extremely fast and was knowledgeable on all points from both a legal and HR standpoint. She followed thru on all points and made sure I understood the document from a lay persons point of view.

I recently required legal counsel regarding an employment matter and contacted Robin Bond. This was my first engagement with Robin, and I was impressed at the very start with her legal acumen in employment law and professionalism. Robin immediately made me feel at ease, and was open minded to discussing all aspects of the case. No matter was too small or trivial to bring forward, and Robin demonstrated exceptional abilities to visualize, articulate, and solve both complex and uncomplicated problems. I consider Robin to be the best in her field and would not hesitate to seek her council again, as well as recommend Robin to my friends and colleagues.

Robin has been involved in two employment related projects for/with me – both ended up providing me with exactly the outcome I had hoped. Robin is very direct, listens well and supported my needs with hard core legal advise. She very clearly understands the law, she takes in all the various personalities involved in the given situation, and creates a plan that is a win win! Robin acts fast, responded to my needs – and was always available. Simply said, she is not only legally bright, she is most clever in the way she approaches the situation – resulting in satisfaction for everyone. I'd hire Robin again and have recommended her to many.

I recently hired Robin to assist me through negotiations out of my former emploiyer, and then rehired her when I received an offer letter at a potential employer. In both cases Robin exhibited exceptional knowledge, guidance and trust, and took an assertive approach in all negotiations. She is not afraid to take on nasty employers, but also ensures her client understands the reality of the situatiion. I would highly recommend Robin to any employee who needs guidance when dealing with any employee related issues. I am delighted with the negotiations and counsel she provided to me.
