Great Advice
Barry actually gave me the information I needed to decide not to sue a former employer and I think that counts as a win-win. The ex-employer did some underhanded conduct in laying a bunch of us off, we consulted several attorneys and Barry was the most responsive. We were actually driving home to CT to be by my Mother's bedside as she passed--it never rains it pours, when Barry got back to us. He gave me an indepth consultation about the case, for free and in the end, I decided not to sue the former employer for age discrimination. The bottom line was that Barry was key in providing clear information that allowed me to form an objective analysis, of any potential litigation. I would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation. In the end, I took the severance pay and decided to put that part of my career behind me. Thanks, Barry!

Employment dispute
I contacted Barry Hersh to help me when my employer wrongfully fired me. Mr Hersh moved quickly and professionally to get a settlement and to clear my name in this unpleasant dispute. He was thorough, fast, intelligent and very easy to communicate with on all matters of our case. I highly recommend him.

Professional and Personable
“Throughout my career I had dealt with many legal issues through business, but this was my first experience in needing legal advice and representation for a personal matter. In seeking a qualified attorney in employment law, Barry Hersh was recommended to me by an in house attorney from another company. I found Barry to be not only knowledgeable, experienced and skilled but a genuinely caring person. He gave me the courage and encouragement to hang in there through what was a long, arduous journey that frankly should have been settled quickly by my former employer. Barry reminded me more than once that I had been wronged and we were on the right side of getting the pay that I had earned and was due to me. The patience and preparation paid off as I was awarded my full pay, expenses and all legal fees. I recommend Barry and the Hersh Law Firm without reservation and will use them in business and personal issues should the need ever arise again.”

Assertive and Educated Employment Lawyer
Barry Hersh Law Firm provided outstanding counsel in one of the most trying times of my professional career. I initially contracted Barry for a consultation on a non-compete restrictive covenant to determine if I would be able to make an anticipated career move. Barry provided sound advice on how to best handle the transition from my former employer as well as proper protocol to make sure I didn’t violate the covenant or expose my new company. He thoroughly explained what would occur if they sued me and how to best prepare myself and my family. When legal action was taken against me by the former employer Barry was able to quickly put a strong defense together against their temporary restraining order in less than 12 hours. Ultimately Barry was able to negotiate a fair settlement that allowed me to go back to work and miss the minimum amount of time. I would highly recommend Hersh Law.

Professional, friendly and helpful
I recently worked with Barry and he was extremely helpful. He understood that I needed an attorney's discerning eye to review a contract that was time sensitive and got right back to me. After speaking with him he answered all of my questions and pointed out things that I otherwise would have missed that might have not been in my favor had I let them be as is. Barry was friendly, easy to talk to, and explained things in a manner a non-attorney could understand. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent Lawery
Working with Barry Hersh has been amazing. During our initial consultation Barry really listened and didn't rush through the conversation. His primary focus was to educate me on the facts while clearly explaining how we would handle my situation. This man truly cares for his clients and has a fire in his belly to fight for them. I highly recommend Barry Hersh!

Excellent Job-
Barry was extremely organized and well rehearsed in all matters towards my particular case. His diligence was outstanding. He delivers himself in a way that ushers confidence and charisma, and because the nature of his expression was so assuring- I felt little to no anxiety throughout the legal matter being pursued. I gave him my full trust, and was not disappointed. I highly recommend Barry and Hersh Law firm.

An incredible experience
I want to thank Mr. Hersh! Barry represented me in an overtime case against my former employer. The entire process was easy and his attention to detail was exactly what I was looking for. He went above and beyond my expectations and got us the decision that we wanted. I have to say I was nervous going into this because I had never been in a lawsuit, but he kept us in the loop the entire time. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for an honest and fair attorney.

Hersh Law Firm is great!
I want to thank Barry for assisting me with my employment law dispute against my employer of over twenty years. As the CEO for all of those years - I never expected to have any legal conflict with my employer. Barry quickly assessed my employment situation and gave me extremely sound legal advice. I retained him and, with his representation, I was able to settle my wrongful termination claim in a short period of time with a terrific outcome for me. Barry was very strong in representing my interests in a legally difficult and emotional dispute. I highly recommend Barry Hersh. He will level the playing field for a client who needs legal representation in a difficult situation.

Fantastic!
I would recommend Barry to anyone, he was very responsive and treated me like a real person, showed genuine concern and interest in my situation. There are so many different lawyers and firms to choose from, I couldn't be happier with the choice I made.

I can not express how great he is.
I wanted to express my thanks for resolving my long standing issue against my former employer. Your knowledge of the details and nuanaces of employment law is astounding. You have excelent communication skills throughout the whole process from the litigation to the trial and every step along the way. Without your help and knowledge of the law I doubt very seriuosly that the outcome would have been what it was. Over the last 2 years of this case you have shown such dedication to my case and myself that I was shocked to see that personal touch. I would recommend the Hersh Law Firm for anyone that has any type of employment law issues, either employer or employee. Mr. Barry Hersh in my opinion is the best employment lawyer in Texas, I did see all the awards he has received over the years and from how my case was handled he deserves everyone of them. If anyone that is currently reading this review, stop reading it and call the Hersh Law Firm you will not regret it. Again I cannot express my gratitude for your help and guidance through this whole process. Thank You

A trusted advisor...
I have the benefit of having Barry on my side. Barry assisted me in negotiating a new experience for me -- being let go from a company with no notice due to a pregnancy. Barry was able to keep me well apprised of the situation, insight into the process, and providing me balance from his experience both from my perspective and my former employer. I was able to resolve my dispute only with Barry's assistance. I would highlight recommend Barry to my friends and family if they were in a similar situation.

Terrific beyond all expectations
Barry recently helped me settle a case involving many layers and legal issues. Throughout the process he not only tended to the legal matters but payed attention to how the case was affecting me personally. I knew from the start this meant as much to Barry as it did to me but never felt that it was a concern about the money he stood to make. Barry was the calm in the storm and remained steadfast in his approach and demands of my former employer. I can't even begin to describe the diligence Barry showed throughout the process; whether it be collecting facts, researching recent cases and rulings that may help us, to communicating every step of the way late at night, weekends, and holidays. It seemed as though he never took a day off from my case and my case was the ony case he was handling at all times.. I honestly can't say enough to describe how pleased I am with Barry and the efforts he put forth to help my family and me. There is no second choice when it comes to an employment attorney!

Excellent Legal Representation by Barry Hersh
Mr Hersh was proactive and responsive to my legal needs. He gave me a thorough assestment of my legal options. He was completely proficient in case law in labor and employment disputes.While I hope I do not have to go thru this process again, if I did he would be my first choice in legal representation.

Just the best
To Whom it May Concern: When I was terminated and my company replaced me with someone with considerably less experience who was twenty years my junior, I retained Barry Hersh to represent me. Barry is one of the brightest, no-nonsense attorneys in Dallas. He told me that the odds of winning a protracted legal dispute were not good, but promised to do everything he could to help me win a favorable settlement. His handling of the matter, from start to finish was nothing short of top drawer. His professional correspondence was concise and strongly worded, and his no-nonsense demeanor let my former employer know from day one that we were serious about pursuing our legal rights. Mr. Hersh earned a fair and equitable settlement in short order. If your employer is attempting to bully you, I strongly recommend the legal services of Barry Hersh. Charles S. Sr. VP

If you need a employment attorney you can trust, and one that works hard for you, then Barry is the one you want.
