I am not one to write testimonials often, as I believe when you hire someone to provide any kind of professional service, you are entitled to good work. However, my success and experience with Michael Zoldan and his legal team was simply above and beyond, and deserves a testimonial.
My situation involved a dispute about my role and performance in senior leadership function, with my employer, , , entailing hostile workplace, bias, and retaliation.
Michael Zoldan and his team represented me during a formal process to demand action, and then assisted me with EEOC mediation proceedings. Thanks to his guidance and expertise, we were able to secure a sizable monetary settlement, mutually agreeable separation, and several favorable non-cash protections and performances to aid with subsequent job search activity. His fees were more than reasonable.
More important than the settlement outcome though, is the manner and experience I had with Mr. Zoldan and his team. Beginning with the initial assessment, I was asked thoughtful questions and provided with a “could be” scenario that would develop as different steps were pursued. All of Michael Zoldan’s “could be” steps became reality, in the manner and order he predicted. This uncanny accuracy is a testament to his experience.
Personally, I was treated with respect and professional empathy—but never pity and never as a means to pursue a ridiculous fee or unreasonable settlement. In other words Mr. Zoldan and his team truly became my advocate. His candor and compassion kept conversations honest, expectations realistic, and execution of steps in the process as smooth as they could be. His involvement clearly improved both the speed at which my case was resolved, the amount and nature of the settlement, and most importantly the manner in which I was treated.
I encourage and implore those of you having issues with your employer, who have tried “proper channels” with no success, to engage the services of Michael Zoldan and his team. For a truly reasonable fee, you will be made financially whole, emotionally comforted, professionally vindicated, and able to move ahead with the rest of your professional life happily and easily.
Thank you Mr. Zoldan and Team for what I call my "triple goodness" outcome.
