EXCELLENT ATTORNEY... KNOWLEDGABLE, HARD WORKING, & TRUSTWORTHY
Hello to all, I hope this review finds you well. I retained Anita Clark for an employment case issue with a former employer. I was looking for a lawyer that could handle my case, someone I can talk to, someone who would do honest work. I choose Anita because she seemed very up to date on employment law. She was nice but she meant business. This was a combination that I wanted. I wanted an attorney that meant business but could also negotiate and bring in results. Anita was VERY knowledgable about employment law. She has worked on both sides of the table before. She was very thorough and negotiated & communicated my case very brilliantly. I was above PLEASED with how she handled my case. My lawyer was able to secure an agreement without going to trial. Anita was able to do what many others thought was impossible. Of course, there are not any guarantees in these types of employment situations... but I was comfortable with Anita, whether it was in my favor or not, because I was confident that she would do her best and do a good job for me. That was the most important thing for me. I wanted someone honest that would do there best for me and my family. If you are looking for an attorney, I recommend Anita Clark. It is at least worth the initial consultation. I think you will find the same thing that I did, and that she is a brilliant employment law attorney. Many blessings and I hope that you find the right person for you.

Employee protected by Mrs. Anita Clark
Having never needed an attorney before, I did not know what to expect when I suddenly faced an employment issue. I needed professional help and Mrs. Anita Clark was the right choice! She helped walk me through step by step what I needed to do to protect myself in this situation. She provided peace of mind that I needed. She was thorough and took much initiative and even followed up to make sure the situation was handled professionally and done right. I would recommend her expertise to anyone needing her services!!! You will not regret it!
