Excellent employment attorney
Jason helped me enormously with an employment issue and the outcome has been positive. He helped me with a difficult issue and was extremely knowledgeable, and expert as well as kind. This has had a positive impact for me. I recommend this firm for employment related issues. He was responsive and knew the best way to proceed. I am grateful for their good counsel.

Excellent service
I hired Bailey & Ehrenberg to assist me with several aspects of my new professional services business. Jason Ehrenberg was the lead and provided excellent service. I found him to be very transparent in all aspects of communication, which helped me to make the right decisions. In one case, I posed several regulatory questions and was impressed with the thoroughness of research and clarity of his written assessment. I very much appreciated the focus I received from him as a founding partner.

ERISA defense
Jason provided sound counsel and provided a methodical defense of a mixed ERISA class action benefit/fiduciary breach claim. He remained focused in advancing our defenses and ultimately precluding plaintiff's counsel from re-introducing theories dismissed at earlier stages of litigation.

Very knowledgeable and responsive.
Jason is a skilled litigator with a lot of substantive knowledge of employment law and employee benefits law. Jason was very responsive to my inquiries and kept me fully informed all through the representation. I highly recommend him to anyone with a litigation, employment or benefits matter.

He does not provide any free consultation
Jason H Ehrenberg does not provide any legal advice. On this website, it's said he provides free consultation, but he actually does not. In my opinion, talking to him is just wasting a time
Response from Jason Ehrenberg September 28, 2021
Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, you seem not to have understood the nature of a free consultation. I did in fact speak with you twice, without charge. And I told you what course of action you should take should you decide to proceed with hiring an attorney. That is the essence of a free consultation. I did not take your case because you wanted someone to work on a contingency basis and I noted that I only take cases such as yours on an hourly basis. I just wanted to make sure that, before you spoke to other attorneys, you understood the difference between an initial consultation and the actual representation which requires a fee agreement/engagement letter. I wish you the best of luck with your matter.
