Expert in employment and labor issues!
Bill at Boznos Law Office was extremely helpful to my wife and I. We needed to apply for unemployment benefits and had many questions and concerns. Initially it is a very confusing process. Bill helped us get thru it! Also, in the past, Bill has helped with some other employment issues that my wife had with her employer. Bill is VERY knowledgeable and helpful in dealing with employer / employee issues. We would strongly recommend him to anyone having any type of employee issues!

Post-employment financial recovery
Bill worked on my case to recover amounts not paid from a prior employer. He was responsive, diligent and provided insights from his deep experience that helped get my case to an amicable resolution. I have the utmost confidence in Bill and would highly recommend him for any employment-related issues.

Very Responsive
I recently hired William Boznos to assist with a hearing I had with the Labor Boatd for a wage claim against my former employer. Mr Boznos was professional, honest, and knowledgeable. He was always reachable, he actually answered the phone when I called or would call back quickly and responded to emails as well. He will work for his client and do what you ask. He has a very good work ethic, I definitely recommend Mr Boznos.

Severance and Non-Compete Clause
After corporate restructuring, Bill reviewed my severance package to be sure I was securing all the benefits I was entitled to within the severance program. When I started with my new company, Bill reviewed the non-compete clause to ensure that I was within the compliance structure.

The guy you want in your corner...
I've worked with Bill on two separate occasions... The first time was when I was backed into a corner and needed someone to help me to force my former employer to honor the terms of my employment contract. Bill went through my contract and gave me the ammo necessary to protect my business interests. Most recently, my son was ticketed for a car accident while on a graduated license. There was a good chance he would loose his license. Bill put us at ease immediately. Bill represented him and managed to negotiate a deal where he kept his license and received 6 months of court supervision.

Legal Counsel for Franchise Exploration
I engaged with Bill to review a Franchise Disclosure Document and Contract, prior to making a decision about whether or not to invest in the franchise. Bill helped me see specific aspects of the contract for concern and further consideration, and counseled me on the various aspects of setting up a franchise. His service to me was invaluable!

Excellent representation for a novice employer
I first started working with Mr. Boznos when I opened my business in 2012. I was totally new at being an employer, and Mr. Boznos made sure that I was doing things to the letter of the law. In the salon and spa industry there are a lot of people who do not pay their employees, legally, and I did not want to be one of those. So I have been expertly guided through all sorts of issues from hiring to firing to building strong company employee policies and finally incorporating my business. He also handles all of our family's legal needs. He helped us put together a special needs trust for one of our children that takes a lot of worry off of our shoulders. I give him a very enthusiastic and heartfelt 5 star recommendation.
