Give me good advise!
Posted by Eric
I was on a (forced) leave of absence and was trying to get everything set so I could start working again. They had been jerking me around, making my life more difficult and stressful than it would have been had I actually been on the job. Things had started to be looking up and I thought I would be going back to work soon (within a week I'd expected) when HR called and said it would be at least two more weeks before I could go back because they needed to set some "ground rules" for my return.
At this point, I'd had enough of the way I was being treated and I decided I no longer wanted to work for the company, as they were treating me so poorly that I knew when I returned I would be treated as almost sub-human. I first tried to talk to HR about it but they were rather unprofessional and extremely unhelpful, so I knew I wouldn't be able to do this alone.
This is when I hired Summer. She obviously got them to realize I (and she) "meant business," as within two days, the company was offering me a settlement/severance package. The offer was actually pretty good, which I attribute to how good Summer is.
I talked the severance over with Summer and we both agreed that while it was pretty good, it was not good enough. She suggested we make a counter-offer that was somewhat more than I really should get, sort of a "shoot for the stars" type offer.
I don't know what she said or how she did it, but they agreed to our offer almost immediately. She and I were both surprised my employer agreed to it, we actually joked perhaps I should have tried to get even more!
In the end, I got more than I expected from the settlement, and actually got more than I originally hoped for. I was/am EXTREMELY happy with the final result, and obviously I and extremely happy with Summer for her assistance and work, I have no doubt she is the reason it went so well.
Undoubtedly, if I ever need a lawyer for an area she specializes in, I will hire Summer without question and without hesitation.

Summer was extremely articulate and knowledgeable regarding employment legalalities. She took the time to throughly read through my Severance agreement advising professional comments. Summer was friendly and made me feel welcome even though I had been just laid off from my employer. She even took the time during the time I was in the hospital, to check in, ensuring I was okay. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.
