Thank you for taking a look at my profile.  You've probably come across me by searching for employment or wrongful termination attorneys in Florida.  I only practice employment law.   I represent individuals and businesses that need help with one or more of the many employment laws in existence.  I regularly handle all forms of discrimination claims, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, medical leave, and wage and hour issues.  I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated in my time of need.  I listen, and explain their options so that they really understand their choices.  This goes a long way in your time of need. 

I'll finish by stating that I was in commercial sales for several years before I became an attorney.  I worked for two Fortune 500 Companies and learned a tremendous amount about business during that time.  I was lucky to spend much of that time in New York City, one of the business capitals of the world.  My experiences give me a unique perspective in my law practice.  I understand the bottom line - you want someone that you can trust, that will deliver results, and that will be cost-effective.  Aside from my business experience, I also learned the value of hard work from my family.  I am a first-generation American, raised by Italian immigrants from Southern Italy, and speak Italian as my second language.  I hope this summary has been helpful, and wish you the best with the issue that brought you here.

Very Professional
Louis was very sensitive about my case. When I had any questions or concerns Louis contacted myself immediately. He takes time to listen to you and address your concerns. Very thorough and tedious. Resolved my case in a very timely manner! If I ever need to use Louis again I'll definitely call on him again. Couldn't ask for anyone else better than Mr. Montone!!

Employment law
I was referred to Lou by another lawyer. The office staff was extremely nice. It was very easy to get an appointment with him that same week. He was on time and prepared based on my email to him. We met for an hr and felt reassured I made the right decision in relation to my case!

Excellent Employment Law Attorney
Attorney Mantone was a HUGE help to my understanding of my severance document. He didn't pressure me into retaining him but rather explained the the pros and cons of signing my severance packet. After reviewing my paperwork, he found employment laws and verbiage errors that assisted in making my decision to file or not file a claim. I strongly recommend Attorney Louis Montone for any employment issues. His knowledge of employee rights is assuring and understanding to make you feel comfortable of your options.

Professional, Intelligent, and Confident!
My consultation meeting with Mr. Montone immediately put my mind at rest as I knew he would be the perfect discrimination employment lawyer for my case. Lou was prompt, courteous, professional, and respectful to every aspect of my case and I felt like his passion for the case was coming from someone that experienced the issue as if he were in my shoes. The case went swift and everything that I wanted included through the case Lou was there to provide assistance and guidance. Thank you.

unfair dismissal case
I was impressed by several aspects. Firstly, my case was rather complicated and contained some highly technical aspects, and I was impressed by Lou's grasp of the facts and his ability to quickly see "the big picture", what was important and what was not-so-important, and to ask me searching questions which enabled me to go away and refine my input to him still further so as to concentrate on the pertinent facts. I had a lot of documentation which needed ordering and collating in order to make it comprehensible and useful to our arguments, this was done efficiently and quickly. Lou's response time to any of my questions in preparation of the case was very fast, and the answers were always helpful. I can recommend him most highly.

Lou is everything you want and need in a lawyer. Proficient, effective and an expert in what he does. He communicated all aspects of my case to me in a timely matter. I never had to chase him down to get the status of my case. My case was a small claim but Lou gave it as much respect and care as a million dollar one. I would use Lou or refer him to friends and family.

Outstanding
Louis helped me step by step through a severance agreement, and I walked away feeling 100% sure that I was making the best decision. He was thorough, concise, and answered every question. While I certainly hope to not need him again in the future, I would not hesitate to call on him for any situation that may arise as I have total confidence in his abilities and expertise.

Compassionate and Professional Firm
Hired before I left my job for legal advice. I was treated with compassion and explained my rights very thoroughly. I ended my employment voluntarily, due to personal circumstances and it was the best choice I had ever made. The firm and support staff have always returned calls and made this experience a lot less scary for me. I would use their services again if needed and wish them much success in the future.

Would Hire Again without Hesitation if Needed
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Montone on a lost wages case he fought for me. From our initial consultation, to the final settlement, I felt comfortable and confident that Mr. Montone not only knew what he was talking about, but was going to bat for me in every way he possibly could. We had a very realistic consultation where I expressed that I wasn't looking to "Get Rich", I just "wanted what I earned." I was even willing to settle for HALF of my wages owed just so I wouldn't have to deal with such nasty people. I was also concerned because they decided to drag out all final negotiation correspondence until the holidays. Which can add WEEKS to this process. I was also exceedingly impressed at Mr. Montone's response time to both my calls and my emails, especially during the holidays. Even when I would receive a general out of office response, he always contacted me personally to answer my questions or provide me with an update. I firmly believe it was his professionalism, know-how and perseverance for what I deserved, that resulted with my settlement being exactly what I asked for. I hope to never have to go through something like this again, but if I do I will definitely give Mr. Montone a call.
