Workplace issues and Separation Agreement
I reached out to Mr. Venick for his counsel on a separation agreement and for advice regarding discriminatory treatment I had experienced from my direct manager. Mr. Venick was out of town when I initially reached out and wouldn't be available until at least a week from my initial contact. As I was under a time constraint I was anxious to meet with him. I shared that with his staff who apparently made sure Mr. Venick was aware of this. Mr. Venick was very responsive upon his return and scheduled a meeting with me on his 2nd day back in the office. During this 1st meeting, Mr. Venick took the time to ask me a lot of specific but thoughtful questions to help us move forward. Throughout the process, he was very responsive as well as proc-active in reaching out to me to make sure I didn't miss any deadlines. I would recommend(and already have) Mr Venick to anyone who needs assistance with employment/employer issues.

great, measured service
I contacted Mr. Venick after I had been forced to retire from my Washington, DC-based organization. I needed assistance in negotiating a severance package and possibly taking further steps. He was terrific in helping me. Ultimately this was not a situation requiring protracted legal back-and-forth or a lawsuit. Mr. Venick's advice was great. He did an excellent job of walking me through everything that happened. The most impressive thing he did (in my opinion) was to ask me what I wanted the outcome to b and walk me through the pros and cons of all my options. The outcome was minimalist. All of the negotiation with my former employer were taken care of by mail and phone. This was a huge relief. Trying to work all of this out in Washington, DC, and in Nashville would have been arduous, especially given that I had unexpected health issues in the middle of it. It was settled to me satisfaction. All this is to say, that Mr. Venick was a terrific lawyer who encouraged modest measured steps to achieve what I wanted. Other lawyers mightjust have said see you all in court. I am grateful for his help.

Employment Law - EEOC - Superior Attorney
Irwin's exceptional knowledge in this area allowed me to successfully escape a very bad work environment. The number one complaint against attorneys is lack of communication. There were no issues with Irwin. He kept me involved every step of the way; and I never had to wonder what was going on with my case. He spoke in terms that any layperson would understand. Irwin was totally honest, forth coming, and fair. I not only found a great attorney; I now consider him a friend. A professional guy with an excellent staff.

Excellent Service
I needed to have a employment separation agreement and stock agreements reviewed in a formal and timely manner. I reached out to Mr. Venick's office and received a call back within the hour. I had my initial consultation within 2 business days and he reviewed and advised on the separation package and the stock agreements within 24 hours of receiving the information. I found his council to be sound and prudent and am grateful for the timely manner of the advise. I would give Mr Venick the highest recommendation and have already recommended him to friends and business associates!

Employment Workplace Issues - Discrimination
Mr. Venick's professional assistance and advice during the worst six months of my lengthy career was outstanding. He was like the extended family member who helped me work through the emotional anger of my former workplace situation when newer, younger, and less experienced people became my direct supervisors. Once I was able to focus on the facts and document them as Mr. Venick recommended, I was able to make the appropriate decisions for me and my family. We did not go to the litigation phase, but I did receive what we both felt was a fair settlement offer. I highly recommend him and his firm.
