It was relatively simple to find attorney's who would represent employers, but as an employee in a hostile work environment, finding representation was not as easy.
After speaking to some attorneys that were referred to me, I went to the internet in search of those honored by their peers as "Super Lawyers" and contacted three who declared themselves to work for employees rights. All replied in due time, but it was Beth's office that, after an explanation of my situation, suggested we meet, if only for an initial consultation.
Beth's schedule was accommodating enough that we could meet within 72 hours. From the initial consultation, she was the perfect balance of pragmatic, professional and supportive. Beth presented me with the strengths and weaknesses of my claim. She made no promises of outcomes, only to do her best, and help me do mine in those trying and stressful circumstances.
Through-out the process, her communication was timely and responsive (something not to be taken for granted, based on my few previous experiences with attorneys). My questions were answered, my strategic input was welcome and I never questioned her advocacy for my cause.
I'm not wealthy, and I found Beth's fees to be fair, her billing and explanations clear, and her time usage efficient.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Beth and her team.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Beth for 25 years. She is the first attorney I call when I have a question related to employment law. She obtains great results for her clients. She is also my first recommendation for clients seeking an attorney for employment law help.
