Fortunate to work with Justin Plaskov
I am very thankful to have worked with Justin. Professional, communicates well, patient and clear with answering questions. Knowledgeable and returns phone and email messages in a timely manner. Extremely grateful that Justin had the time to work with me since I had a very unexpected turn of events with my employer and a very short time frame to resolve the issues. I would highly recommend Justin on legal matters associated with employment.

I had the good fortune to work with Justin Plaskov as my trusted counsel in a breach of contract dispute. I’m glad I did. Mr. Plaskov and his entire firm handled my case with professionalism, sharp legal skills, responsiveness and importantly, kindness and integrity. While I’m certain that my case was not the most lucrative for his firm, Mr. Plaskov did the work. He researched the compelling facts, found legal precedent and prevailed. When one is treated less than ethically or professionally by an employer, finding the right legal representation is an important and daunting task. Mr. Plaskov responded to my initial inquiry on a weekend, as it was time-sensitive, and I retained his firm within 72 hours of first contact. Mr. Plaskov and his firm were fair and transparent with their hours and fee, and his knowledge of the law was extensive. I would recommend Justin Plaskov and his firm to family, friends or anyone with an employment dispute. He reached a fair settlement with my former employer and I was made whole financially because of Justin. He is a brilliant attorney.

Professional, communicative, accessible attorney
Justin represented me in a wrongful termination/breach of contract case involving sexual harassment. The case settled in my favor out of court, after several months of debate between Justin and my previous employer's attorney. I had never dealt with any sort of legal case before, and Justin was readily available, efficient, and communicated in a way individualized to my needs. He was upfront at all times and I felt secure with his representation throughout a difficult time in my lfe.

Personal attorney of choice
Justin Plaskov become my personal attorney about six years ago. I had some issues relating to my finances and real estate that I needed to gain a better understanding in hopes of reaching a beneficial resolution. We worked well together, and Justin met my goals and expectations. Justin was integral in reaching a positive outcome. I believe that Justin always put my interests first. Justin was accessible and I never had to wait long for returned calls. I trust Justin and felt comfortable having him represent me. I will continue with confidence to use his legal knowledge and expertise in the future.

Look no further! Justin is honest, extremely knowledgeable, and easy to work with.
After researching various law firms, I landed with Justin’s firm, as he and his team were highly recommended and had an amazing track record winning employment cases. Justin sat down with me, listened to my case and gave me very honest feedback. I had quite a bit of material prepared for him that I handed over, and knew my case was in great hands. He got right to work, and kept me updated on the status of the case throughout the entire process. Not only did we win the case, my employer didn’t even contest it. I would highly recommend Justin and his team to anyone facing a legal battle with their employer. They’re truly top-notch, and will seek the justice you deserve.

Professional, skilled service
I have utilized Justin’s services on two occasions. The first case was an ADA case and was resolved in my favor. I was impressed enough with Justin’s ability that I hired him for an FCA case that is still pending. Justin is awesome to work with. He is very responsive to any questions or concerns I have and quickly return phone calls and emails. Justin has a great attitude and is very good at keeping me updated on case status and provides thorough, well researched information to help me make decisions on my case. I would definitely recommend Justin and should I require any legal needs in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact him.

Great, Practical, Lawyer
We've used Justin as a sort of outside general counsel for a family-owned business for around 6 years now. We've been very happy with him. He's helped us with oil and gas issues, estate planning questions, and some general corporate work. Justin is smart, pragmatic, and resourceful. We found him to be easy to work with, and we've always felt that the bills were fair and reasonable. When something is outside of his area of expertise, he is good at finding answers or checking in with others at his firm. I would absolutely recommend him.

Smart and Practical
I hired Justin to represent me in an employment investigation. I found Justin to be smart, responsive, resourceful and measured in his recommendations regarding all matters. Justin reviewed material quickly, got to the essence of the issues and offered sage advice, all resulting in a mutually acceptable resolution to the matter. I would highly recommend Justin and his firm on legal matters related to employment.
