I contacted Lescht & Associates in March 2010, when I was told by my employer that he was taking away a multimillion dollar client. that I brought to the company. I am a commission only sales person and after working to secure this client for months without being paid, I asked for a committment in writing from my employer. After receiving the committment and several orders from this client the company terminated me.
The first thing Mr. Lescht did was send a letter to the company.stating I had retained his services. He did this the same week I met him. I was impressed by how fast Mr. Lescht responded to my case. Mr. Lescht filed suit in PG County and constantly kept me informed of the status of the case. A court date was set and Mr. Lescht worked with me so I would be prepared to testify. Bottom line Mr Lescht WON the case and I will receive all the commissions due me.
Mr. Lescht is an excellent Trial Lawyer, He is calm, cool, and collected.
He is very methodical and he stays on point. After the trial, several people commented on how professional my attorney was and how he was able to make his point with very few words.

Alan handled my wrongful termination case. Throughout each step of the legal process Alan was prepared and effective in his representation. He also kept me informed at each step. This was important because, those wheels of justice do turn slow indeed. I also appreciated Alan's frankness and his ability to identify what is important and what is not when going through a case like this. Our conversations tended to be short and to the point, a good thing in my opinion. My case came to acceptable and fair conclusion largely due to Alan's efforts.

I cannot imagine a better individual representing me than Alan Lescht. During a long, and at times frustrating, process Alan provided excellent guidance, and answered every question I had with a clear and helpful answer. Whenever I called or emailed Alan got back to me quickly, and kept me informed of all dealings with the opposing side. In all of my dealings with the office everyone was friendly, helpful and supportive. In the end my complaint was resolved very satisfactorily and a level of closure was achieved that will help me move on.
I am very satisfied with choice in lawyer I made, and I would recommend Alan to anyone facing similar issues.
