I paid Ms. Workman 1300.00 as her reduced fee to represent me in renegotiating a severance package. Prior to paying her, she was very responsive, after it was very difficult to reach her. This started in February 2020 and still to date I do not have my letter and she refuses to refund my money. I am in the process of filing a Bar complaint against her. She continued to have excuses after excuses from I fell and hurt my ankle. I had to have back surgery. She emailed me several times to say she would have the letter soon but never produced the letter. I now have to get another attorney and possibly sue her.

Ms. Workman represented me in a case concerning employment. She was very thorough and patient. She demonstrated integrity and fought hard on my behalf. She was very credible and presented a very strong opening and closing case.

After a phone consultation with Ms. Workman I paid her fee to represent me in a breach of contract suit against my former employer. She was to produce a contract for service in addition to a letter to my former employer requesting damages to be paid to me. It has been two months since I first reached out to Ms. Workman and one month since Ms. Workman received my payment of her fee. Since that time she has failed to produce either document despite telling me on no less than five occasions that she would have them prepared for my review by a specific date. In addition, Ms. Workman has missed scheduled telephonic meetings and has failed to return my calls and emails. Given the many positive reviews and her initial demeanor I was very surprised at Ms. Workman’s lack of responsiveness to my inquiries and failure to deliver as promised on multiple occasions. I wish that I had read all of her reviews before I paid her retainer because I would have seen the one star rating from a few years ago. Apparently she has demonstrated the same unprofessional behavior in the past and perhaps her license suspension was related to that??? Is history repeating itself? That is for the Bar Association to determine. I know that I should have chosen differently. Now, in addition to seeking restitution from my former employer I will be filing against Ms. Workman in small claims court. DON’T make the same mistake I did. STAY FAR AWAY from this attorney!

I contacted Ms. Workman to assist in my unemployment hearing. It was the best decision I could have made! She was very thorough, and hands on. As a result I won my case!! Although my case is over she still keeps in contact and checks in on my progress!! She is an absolute JEWEL!!

Several years ago Mary Workman was first recommended to me by a friend after I shared with her the bullying and harassment my colleagues and I endured from my principal and area superintendent. Ms. Workman provided me with legal advice that empowered me to regain my confidence, dignity, and self-esteem as an educator. Recently I was at a loss of how to proceed after my supervisor blatantly violated my privacy thus forcing me in a battle for my livelihood. Again Ms. Workman has provided me with excellent legal advice along with concern for my well-being. She has been honest, open, and very helpful in assisting me to resolve this issue. I highly recommend Mary Jo Workman to anyone that wants an excellent employment attorney that cares about her clients. She has been a friendly voice during an extremely stressful time. Thank you.

I have had the opportunity to work with Mary Workman on several cases and have found her to be knowledgeable regarding rules and regulations. She met deadlines that were close and did a good job of informing me about how the case was progressing. Her strengths are the experience she has gained while representing various levels of society and the fact she is willing work with you regarding retainer fees. I recommend her and will use her in the future if the need arises.

I was represented by attorney Workman in a discrimination case in Federal Court. Although I was ill at the time, Mary was insightful, kind, and compassionate. Ms. Workman, a sole practice attorney, was opposed by a law firm of several hundred attorneys and managed to out lawyer all of them! She brought superb clerical written work, attention to detail, and superior negotiating skill. I must say above all, my best experience was getting to know her as a person.

I have worked with Ms. Workman on two different cases. Her combination of experience, expertise, and dedication proved beneficial in both cases. I felt like a valued customer rather than just another case to be handled. I would recommend Ms. Workman to anyone looking for a very professional attorney.

I have been acquainted with Mary J. Workman through a Labor/EEOC mediation representation. She came at a time when I needed an attorney to represent me with no upfront retainer fee, she allowed me to pay my retainer over the course of my case when no other attorneys would do that. Ms. Workman is an excellent labor law attorney who single-handedly took on my case with experience, expertise and compassion. I won my case through mediation, and my settlement was equitable and fair. She has firsthand experience in the practice of Labor/EEOC law. She is very reliable when it comes to scheduled dates, and with me coming from a paralegal background that leaves a lot to admire in an attorney. Ms. Workman’s honesty, integrity and compassion no matter how large or small the case stands out among the competition; and is to be commended. She has performed pro-bono services and free legal work for the needy and underprivileged...I admire that and her work; and I am confident that she will continue to do excellent legal work for others who retain her services.
