Expert Counsel
I have just finalized a complicated, three-year-long dispute with a former employer. I’m thankful Cheryl Legare was the attorney working on my behalf. She committed the facts of my case to memory and could recall dates and details with remarkable competence. She applied her knowledge of employment law to achieve a successful outcome in my case. My sincerest appreciation to Cheryl for expert counsel and to her assistant, Renee, for her supportive services throughout this process.

Top Notch Employment Attorney
Cheryl Legare is the consummate professional. She spent time explaining my options and the most advantageous path for me to take. Ms. Legare is extremely knowledgeable about employment law and was able to identify my issues and offer ongoing counsel throughout my ordeal. She was sympathetic and kind to me and even offered additional resources to assist in my situation. Additionally, unlike other lawyers, she was available to me, responding swiftly.

Very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable
While it turned out that I never needed Cheryl Legare's services she sat down with me, and directed me to people who could help. She sent a lot of time with me to find out how to best address my case. That meant a lot to me. Every time I called she was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful.

Unfortunately
Attorney Legare was highly recommended to me; however when I called her office, her assistants were very inconsiderate, utterly neglectful and insensitive to my case. I never had a chance to speak with her.
