Choosing an attorney can be challenging even under ideal circumstances. When the time comes that you truly need a lawyer, you are likely under significant stress and pressure. Making such an important decision while dealing with such anxiety and uncertainty about the future can feel overwhelming. I know because I found myself facing such a situation. I was accused of sexual harassment at my workplace and was facing the prospect of losing my job. I was incredibly fortunate to have Mark Biggerman in my corner. People can throw the term “advocate” around in a cursory manner, but Mark genuinely embodied this role. He worked very diligently on my behalf, listening to my concerns and answering my questions. His willingness to work with me, not just for me, helped put me at ease as much as was possible. He was as clear and concise with me as possible and never talked down to me or made me feel unqualified to contribute to my own legal representation. However, if he believed my suggestions were unwise he was completely honest and made sure I was aware of their weaknesses. Mark is also a skilled legal researcher and highly organized. I was so glad that Mark was there to represent me from the beginning as the process unfolded. There were numerous examples of my workplace ignoring clear contradictions in the accusations made against me, as well as subverting their own policies to try to be as punitive as possible. Without him in my corner, I would have been railroaded in a climate where the rights of the accused are becoming more and more suppressed. As Mark put it, he was fighting not just for me, but for justice. I was confident that Mark had a vested interest in representing me to the best of his abilities, and I was more than just a paying client to him. When the time comes that you truly need a lawyer, you need an advocate, and I highly recommend Mark Biggerman for that purpose.
