Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked with Thad Harkins on many matters over the past 15 years. He is extremely well-versed in employment and labor litigation matters. Thad is a zealous advocate for his clients and manages to see both sides of the case very well, which provides him with the unique ability to foresee matters before they arise. Thad is a very bright and accomplished attorney and is a real people person. He is a champion for his client's rights in all areas of employment matters. I have recommended clients and family members to him and have received very positive feedback on their experience with him as their counsel and advocate. Thad has a proven track record of winning in the courtroom as well. His experience as a mediator lends even more credibility to his long-standing career and advocacy capabilities. He is simply the best in employment/labor law litigation matters and claims.
