The BEST Employment Lawyer in Tallahassee, FL!
Cruz Law Firm are true professionals. They are the very best in Tallahassee for any cases dealing with employment law, discriminations, whistle blower and sexual harassment claims. After calling several firms, Tiffany Cruz personally called me back and handled my case. She fought hard for me against my employer. She was great in mediation calming me down in a moment of crisis. Cant recommend enough. The whole team at Cruz Law Firm was great to work with.

Tiffany is a kind and compassionate person and the truth matters to her. She was engaged in my case and demonstrated this with immediate responses to my queries. She understood my ethical issues with every process and aought to validate me and to promote wholenesd with my issues. She appears as gentle as a lamb but lies and subterfuge motivate her to unveil truth...Blessings for the effort you place on vindication of those wronged

A Satisfied Client
Tiffany has been very patient,forthcoming, and easy to communicate with during a difficult situation. I respect her knowledge and abilities and would recommend her for any issues that require her expertise of the law. She did not make promises she could not deliver and handled my not so easy personality very well. I appreciate her and the firm for their hardworking over the past couple years.

Skill and Compassion
For 30 years, I enjoyed a rewarding and fulfilling career. Suddenly, I found myself in an unfair work environment and in need of an employment and discrimination attorney. I researched local attorneys, and chose Tiffany Cruz. That was one of the smartest moves I could have made. Tiffany listened to my case and advised all of the options available. She was always available when I needed her throughout the process. She is a skilled employment attorney who knew just how to correspond with legal entities and my prior employer. I don’t wish this situation on anyone, but If you find yourself in a situation where you are being mistreated or discriminated against at work, you owe it to yourself to contact Ms. Cruz! Thank you Tiffany!

Recommendation
First time I have had to use an attorney for an employment issue and Tiffany was great. She listened attentively during the consult and clearly articulated options. Tiffany is responsive and supportive and I recommend her for anyone who needs representation for unfair workplace issues.

Highly recommend
I was referred to Ms. Cruz by a friend of a friend who was not sure if she would be able to assist with the employment issue that I had experienced. I called for a consultation with very short notice as a deadline was quickly approaching and her staff was able to get me on her busy schedule very quickly. She is approachable, precise and to the point when it came to her recommendations. The several staff members at the firm that I had phone calls or interacted with are friendly and do what they say and when they say it will be done. I highly recommend this firm and will definitely call her/them in the future if the need arises.

Zealous Advocate
The highest compliment an attorney can receive is to be hired by a former adversary. Ms. Tiffany Cruz and I met years ago on opposite sides at a deposition, and when I found myself in need of legal services I knew who I wanted on my side. She is a skilled litigator and zealous advocate for her clients. Her cases have and will continue to make news headlines for good reason - she is unafraid to take on complex and novel legal challenges. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of my case, and won't hesitate to refer others to Ms. Cruz in the future.

Excellent work
I hired Ms. Cruz to represent me on an employment case. She explained things clearly from start to finish, offering me her judgment on various stages of the case. She was easy to work with, and kept me up to date and answered questions as we moved through the process.

Assistance in personal injury case
Ms. Cruz assisted me during a very difficult period in a legal case. She was empathetic, professional and very thorough. She explained everything to me in clear and understandable terms. Being on a fixed income, I do not have a lot of expendable cash at this time, but I managed to send her a money order, in gratitude, for $25, which she immediately returned with a note explaining that she offered her services as strictly pro bono. Ms. Cruz is a credit to her profession and I thank her for her assistance.

Fighter
Mrs. Cruz was on my case since day one...I know I was always wanted a update on how things were going and she was always comforting. She always stood up and stood by me. And chased the truth about my case and always communicated with me via email or phone call... I was never leftout the loop!
