Excellent representation
I was in need of an employment attorney following what I believed to be was a wrongful termination. I of course Googled, "Best employment Attorneys in Florida," and this firm was listed. Without going into details, finding this firm was so fortuitous. Cynthia and her entire team, are AMAZING. She will make you write up a full time-line of all factual events during your employment. Do not exaggerate. Give dates, full names and events. Have supporting documents if possible. So you better be ready for that. She will also need to interview you to go over your submission to her. Incredibly patient, and extremely knowledgeable of the law and your rights. If you have a case that she accepts to represent you, thank your lucky stars! Thank you Cynthia, your staff and your incredible firm. Thank god for firms like yours that represents the "people" and not the goliath corporations. Truly.........THANK YOU!!

Wrongful Termination and Discrimination - Excellent representation
After wrongful termination and discrimination by my former employer, I contacted Cynthia Sass and her team of lawyers. Ms. Sass and her staff were quickly available for consultations, reviews of materials, and conversations around strategy and approach. They advised me of my various options and helped me through negotiations. When my employer stalled, Ms. Sass stepped in and quickly resolved the situation. The dedication and professionalism of every attorney and staff member in her office gave me confidence and calmed my nerves in an otherwise very stressful situation. I strongly recommend Ms. Sass and her firm. They have excellent credentials and a track record that any employer will respect, and my personal experience with her was superb.

Excellent Law firm
As a former client of the Sass Law Firm, I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking an attorney who excels at professionalism and communication. I was kept informed and copied on all correspondence and pleadings without having to ask at any point what was happening with my case. Throughout my case, I was very impressed with the fact that my attorney ( Ms Cynthia & Ms. Jennifer) were very knowledgeable and thorough, yet able to explain legal terminology in layman terms. If I ever have a similar situation in the future, I will not hesitate to contact them again to represent me.

Trusted Advisor
I recently engaged Sass Law Firm and Cynthia Sass for legal advice and counsel on an employment issue. I have to say that my experience with Sass Law Firm was exemplary! Everyone that I worked with in the firm was cordial, highly responsive, communicative, and friendly. After providing context and background regarding my issue, I was provided honest, candid feedback and legal advice on my options. Cynthia took a high level of genuine interest in my situation, provided sincere and thoughtful feedback, and continued to present options for my consideration throughout the process. When faced with difficult decisions about pursing legal action, it was very comforting to know that Sass Law Firm was not only ready, willing, and fully capable of supporting my case, but they also objectively presented their opinions on what those actions would entail. Sass Law firm handled my situation with integrity, genuine interest in my personal wellbeing, and a tenacious aptitude to support whatever decision I made. To my surprise, at the closure of our engagement, not only did I receive a closeout letter, but I also received a check in the mail. Never in my life have I received money back from a law firm for a portion of the retainer. As a prior client of the firm, I highly recommend their services. Clearly, the entire team takes pride in the work they do, and they demonstrate their commitment to their clients. I can’t think of another employment law firm I’d rather have represent me in the future!

The Best!
Cynthia Sass and her law firm were a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was she able to defend us from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My family and I are eternally grateful for her service and I highly recommend Ms. Sass for their services. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone at Sass Law Firm.

Expert and resourceful attorney - highly recommend
I retained Ms. Sass to assist me in a labor matter with my prior employer. I had an excellent experience with her and her staff. I felt the practice has high professional standards and integrity. Ms. Sass herself is an expert in in labor law and a pleasure to work with. She has common sense, always made me feel comfortable and gave me the best advice possible to protect my interests and resolve issues at all times. When my particular case required expertise beyond labor law, she liased with a colleague and helped me resolve the issue with minimal extra expense. I appreciated her dedication and responsiveness throughout the process, especially when the situation got complicated. She was there the whole time I needed her. If I ever need assistance with a labor matter again (hope not!) I will definitely ask her to represent me again.

Very pleased and greatful for Sass Law firm
Finding the right law firm to represent you can be very hard, in my case this was personal, sensitive, and agonizing. Needless to say, I needed a lawyer who was not only determined to aid to my necessities, but also believed in me. Cynthia Sass and her wonderful team is very hardworking. When I felt helpless, her motivation rose stronger. Never was she once deterred from this case. Sass Law firm brought justice and peace to my life. Hiring her was the best choice I’ve made. Today I not only see an attorney I see a woman I can look up to and appreciate.

Best Lawyer in all of Tampa
Cynthia Sass is by far the most efficient and knowledgeable attorney I have ever been associated with. From the minute I met her I knew I was in good hands. She took the time to evaluate my legal needs and then gave a professional and well thought out response which proved to be amazing. I would recommend her to anyone and know that she would treat everyone equally and with complete respect and professionalism. No wonder she was chosen as one of the top attorneys in Tampa Bay. A+

I had the privilege of working with Cynthia for about a year and a half on a difficult employment-related concern. She was always very professional, well-prepared, personable, and helpful. Her advice was spot-on, and ultimately enabled us to settle the case to the satisfaction of all parties. I highly recommend Cynthia for any employment matter - she is clearly best-in-class.

Top Tampa Labor Employment Lawyer representing employees
Dear Ms. Sass, I would like to express our extreme gratitude to you for the insightful, topnotch, highly professional and compassionate legal services you recently provided to me during my resolution of a critical and pressing legal matter. There is nothing more important than finding an expert legal advocate to guide and assist when negotiating a situation involving something as important as work-related discrimination, FMLA, and wrongful termination/resignation issues. I performed research prior to selecting you, an expert in this field, to provide me with legal services. You came to me highly recommended, from numerous personal sources. You successfully negotiated a very difficult settlement for a close friend of mine, ultimately achieving his goals. Your reputation within the legal community precedes you as being the most talented and accomplished Tampa Labor and Employment Lawyer representing employees; one who has vast expertise in the areas of wrongful termination, FMLA, discrimination, negotiations and/or litigations. What I found from working with you personally is that you will pursue representation of a legal matter in a way that benefits your client the most in reaching his/her personal goals. I had been advised that you are a masterful legal bull dog, one who will not quit in fighting for the rights of your clients, be it through reaching a negotiated settlement or bringing a case to trial. My own personal experience with you supports every recommendation that I had received about you. It is all true. Thank you for reworking your own schedule to provide me with an initial consult, when you became aware that time was of the essence. You provided me with your undivided attention for an initial consultation, while hearing the story, validating claims from a legal standpoint and providing me with your initial recommendations on how best to proceed. Being a lawyer myself, I know the value of your time, and the great value of a shrewd, brilliant lawyer, who is top in her field and on top of her game as a fierce adversary. That is the kind of lawyer I sought out and needed. Another thing that I soon learned about you, is that you care so incredibly much about fighting on behalf of an individual that you feel has been wronged, the underdog. You are very passionate about making a victim feel heard and affirmed and a Company ( or a School District) accountable in the case where you determine that Federal laws have been breached and a legal cause of action exists. You have vast experience handling sensitive legal issues with the discretion and care required. Equally important is your ability to assess the overall picture from a legal standpoint, and to file a lawsuit on a behalf of a client or encourage trying to first reach a negotiated settlement, if, and only if, you feel that it might be in the best interest of the individual involved. You have shown me personally that you are not about the money, you are about providing the best legal advice and service. You are about helping someone who has legitimately been wronged. You are an awesome person and top legal advocate, Ms. Sass. I am so thankful that I have you in my legal corner. You are the very best lawyer and I thank you for helping me to resolve a legal issue , when for a number of reasons I was unable to see the forest through the trees and advocate on my own behalf. Sincerely Yours, Choosing Anonymity due to sensitive nature of this existing claim
