Took care of everything
Any consideration toward litigation is a serious matter. For me, it was deeply personal too. I remember relating the circumstances to Ms. Trueblood & feeling emotionally wrecked. She agreed to take my case and I left. I didn't hear anything for awhile, so I called. I asked Ms. Trueblood if she needed anything, how things were progressing, etc. and Ms. Trueblood's response was, "Go to work. We will handle this." Those words were confidence boosting and reassuring. So I did...go to work, that is. Next thing I know, there is a settlement offer and Ms. Trueblood and Mr. Henry Brewster are wrapping things up for me. They protected me when I felt I was losing everything I worked for. I remember being told by the company I was in litigation with telling me that they had the best attorney in the state, and I would regret this fight through every generation of family I had. Well, they didn't have Ms. Temple Trueblood. We WON!! I cannot express how grateful I am to Ms. Trueblood and her team. She's a Rockstar! Professional, courteous, & smart beyond words.

A True Professional and Case Winner
Ms. Temple Trueblood was excellent in handling my case. Ms. Trueblood listen to me from day one. She didn't judge or make me feel like she had a doubt in what I told her happen to me. Ms. Trueblood done her investigation, studied my case and kept a positive attitude. I had a tough case where a lot of people I confided in told me I was just waisting my time. I was truly hurt mentally and emotionally and I felt like she felt my pain. Some attorneys just want a case and money. I really feel like Ms. Trueblood was out for Justice. I can't express how professional and wonderful she handled my case. Ms. Trueblood got me Justice. I would recommend Ms. Trueblood 100 percent.

Excellent Representation
Temple and her law firm represented me in a discrimination case; and she handled the case with professionalism, knowledge and the outcome was in my favor. Temple, herself is an excellent attorney that kept me informed and fought for me.

Real representation without hesitation
Temple is by far an absolutely outstanding legal professional. She has an amazing ability to connect with her client(s) and provide them with an honest overview of their case. In my opinion, it is her honesty and willingness to be transparent in every aspect of her client’s case that makes her an exceptional attorney. I could not have asked for a more talented, dedicated, committed, determined and focused Employment and Labor Counsel to represent me.

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY!!!! Words could never explain her output. She is very dedicated to her clients, she cares about her clients. Ms. Trueblood treated my case as if it was her own. She knows the laws as if she wrote them. Ms. Trueblood is a delight to work with, yet she is a "breast" and I would not want to go against her. I thank God everyday for blessing me with an awesome legal mentor, Ms. Trueblood.

Absolutely the very best!
I would highly recommend Temple Trueblood to anyone needing legal services with regards to employment law and discrimination! I found myself needing legal representation, and having never hired an attorney before, I was very unfamiliar with the process. Thankfully, someone recommended Temple Trueblood. I have never been sorry! Temple was always professional, kind and caring, but most of all very intellectual and knowledgeable. It was apparent right away that she was definitely one of the best in her field. I felt like she was always genuinely concerned about me and my case, and was always just a phone call away. She was able to answer any question I had, and her staff was just as kind and caring as she was. She was aggressive when she needed to be, and was never intimidated by others. I was always thankful she was on my side. I would highly recommend Temple! She is definitely superb, and one of the very best!!!

Excellent attorney who is committed to her clients
Ms. True blood expertly navigated every aspect of my complicated case winning in a jury trial. She knew the facts of my case and the law like the back of her hand. She fought for me every step of the way as though it was her own personal battle. She is very pleasant to work with, but I would not want to go up against her!

Knowledge, Compassion, and Excellence
From my first conversation with Temple it was clear that I had found an attorney who was knowledgable about the law, passionate about civil rights, and empathetic towards her clients. She was able to explain my rights in a clear, concise manner that I, without any legal background, was able to fully understand. My calls and emails were answered in a timely and efficient manner and my concerns were treated as a top priority. Throughout the entire process Temple was an advocate that I could trust with my entire wellbeing. I would be honored to recommend this amazing attorney to anyone, and I could do so knowing that she would treat them as professionally and compassionately as she did me.

I highly recommend Temple Trueblood to represent you!
I've never had a lawyer or every been involved in a lawsuit of any kind. Temple, laid it all out up front the very first time I spoke with her. I knew right away she would be a good representation on my behalf. Throughout the process she confirmed that for me, she communicated with me often and touched bases with me on things that where going on, happening or coming up. I hope me nor anyone else has to ever go through the experience I did leading up to my lawsuit. Temple, made the process easier to go through. She was firm on her defense and that's one of the things I enjoyed about her most.

Thankful I was put in contact with Temple Trueblood
Temple made me feel like it was ok to stand up for myself. She listened and seemed genuinely concerned with my personal feelings. I was upset and embarrassed by what I was going through and had a hard time getting through my deposition without crying uncontrollably. Temple stopped me and told me I shouldn't be embarrassed, I should be proud because it takes courage to stand up for yourself and that I had done nothing wrong. She said the majority of women that go through this kind of thing are too afraid or embarrassed to speak up. I was sexually harassed and wrongfully terminated. For me this case wasn't about money, it was the principle. I needed the people responsible to be exposed and take responsibility for their actions. Through out the entire process she kept me informed and made sure I was comfortable with what was happening. This was my first time using an attorney but I couldn't of asked for a better one. Not to mention the other attorney was obviously intimidated by Temple during the depositions. We didn't end up going to court but I feel certain Temple would of been ruthless in court. I am very thankful that I was put in contact with Temple Trueblood and would highly recommend her.

Wonderful woman and lawyer
I started my lawsuit in 2011. I was pregnant and had just lost my job. The entire time Mrs. Trueblood was always very attentive to my situation. She kept me up to date on every thing that was going on with the case. Every time I emailed her I was guaranteed to receive a reply before the day was over. I will definitely recommend her to others.

Temple Trueblood should not be practicing employment law. She is rude and condescending. Other reviews must be fake! Please note that she overcharges her clients... google her name and you ll see...
Response from Temple Trueblood October 13, 2020
I truly hope that no actual client or potential client of mine would ever feel this way after interacting with me. My goals are to help people to pursue their legal rights under the existing laws, as well as to provide a thorough and down-to-earth assessment of whether or not a potential client may or may not have remedies available under those laws. As 90% of my services are provided on a purely contingent basis the vast majority of my clients are not charged an hourly rate for my services, nor do I charge for initial consultations.

In both matters Temple was the consummate professional. She is a zealous representative of her client but fair and collegial with the other lawyers. Her critical thinking, analytical ability, work ethic, and understanding of the law would well serve anyone with an employment problem.

Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have co-counseled with Ms Trueblood many times and am very familiar with her skills, her tenacity, and her relationship with clients. She is a dogged litigator and has a keen insight into the facts and available law on the case. She possesses thorough familiarity with the procedure of the courts in which she practices. She is supported by highly qualified staff and paralegal back-up, as well the financial resources to see any case through. She prepares exhaustively for discovery, especially depositions, and explores all avenues to ferret out the critical information. She defends her clients in depo and trial and aggressively yet ethically pursues opponent witnesses throughout. Her trial skills are organized and effective. She is tireless. She has certainly surpassed my skill level despite her much younger age. I would recommend her to any client."
