I reached out to Ferns firm regarding a hostile work environment claim. I was nothing but disappointed in her inability to provide a service. During our initial consultation I had to repeat basic facts (such as whether or not I took disability) of my case three separate times. After the action items from our initial consultation, I reached out to her for additional help, as my case was not resolved. It took three separate occasions of reaching out to her staff to get her to return my calls. In addition, when she returned my call, she still did not remember the proper facts of the case.
I think she properly misrepresented me on account of her being "too busy."

My experience with Fern and her team was amazing.
Fern and her team was completely dedicated to resolve my dispute and work very hard in my best interest.
It took about eight and one half (8.5) months for team to resolve my case. Throughout this time, we communicated almost on daily / weekly basis via emails, phone, text. This made me feel part of the team all along.
Fern communication with me was very open and candid throughout the duration of my case. This allow me to participate and make correct decisions during each phase of the case
I highly recommend Fern.
