This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Fighter, Advocate and Kind
Without going much into detail of what had occurred with my employer, I was let go for the day I returned from short-term disability. Panic attacks occurring from an ever-present toxic culture had me suffering daily panic attacks. Just a few days after being "released", I went online and found Stephen Voudris. I was looking for a lawyer who would be able to provide the counsel I needed as I had never been through a termination. Over the course of counsel, Stephen provided expert advice based in many years of practice, and he was also empathetic and understood the mental anguish I was going through. He was there with me every step of the way right up through the completion of a successful mediation that not only provided me with much-needed funds ... but also didn't diminish my faith and self respect. Stephen kept me centered on the facts through the process and was also kind-hearted and human. This is the first time I had ever hired the services of an attorney to fight for me ... and I'm extremely fortunate to have had Stephen Voudris in my corner.

Fantastic
Mr Voudris was amazing, he never kept me waiting. Always answered my questions , he made me feel very important all the time. He was very upfront and honest .

Outstanding Representation
Mr. Voudris was referred to me by an associate. Blindly, I trusted him with an employment matter for which I knew not which way to turn. He patiently listened, advised, prepared and guided me through the entire process. Even when I would have caved in at an a settlement amount offered he stood firmly until the best results were achieved.

Very Satisfied client
Mr. Voudris not only won the justice for me that I felt I deserved, but also fought and won justice for those I recommended him to. I not only give him the highest recommendation, but I will not employ the services of anyone else unless they are affiliates, and/or companions of Stephan Vaudris.

Honorable
Mr. Voudris is the best lawyer I have ever known, not just because of his ability as a skilled attorney but for his integrity as a human being. I was in a terrible situation with a company I worked for and he not only explained what was going to happen he gave me really good advice, and even spoke to me after the case was over to answer any other questions I or my family members may have had. When he took the oath that layers take after passing the bar exam he meant every word. He's the best!

Quickly settled a back pay issue
My former employer owed me back pay under the FSLA. Stephan Voudris was by far the most capable, accessible, and helpful person I spoke to in my search for a lawyer. After our first meeting, he promptly contacted my former employer's lawyer and I received a satisfactory out-of-court settlement after only a few rounds of negotiations. I would absolutely recommend him to my own friends and family for any kind of employment issue. Thanks to Stephan Voudris, I received compensation for work that I never would have otherwise. His work is immaculate, his character matches.

Contract review
Atty Voudris was very helpful to me on numerous occasions where he reviewed business contracts and helped me navigate the legal language. I would recommend him to anyone for his professionalism, and attention to the client.

The most awesome lawyer around
I was terminated from my job of 23 years by an over zealous manager who told me to my face that I did not fit in the department for his plans for the future so I would need to go. He, the manager, also refused to acknowledge my ADA. My unemployment was denied and my lawyer fought for me. We won!!

Stephen Voudris = Experience, Expertise and Integrity
I am a professional woman who sought the services of an attorney following a wrongful termination. Stephen Voudris proved to be an incredible advocate. He kept me informed throughout the process, and in the end, we won. His integrity, fairness, kindness and true sense of commitment and concern helped me throughout a very difficult process. He was thorough and researched every avenue to support my case. I was truly lucky, as I did not know him, or know of him, prior to contacting him about my case. I will be forever grateful for the way he championed my cause. Moreover, Stephan Voudris is a kind and decent human being. Stephan Voudris is a rarity in the legal profession, and I highly recommend his legal services.
