Thorough and honest
Josh is the only lawyer I reached out to that took the time to listen to the facts, ask relevant questions and thoroughly assess my situation. He walked me through my options, gave me his honest opinion and was clear about what he could and couldn't help me with. I appreciate that he didn't overpromise and gave me a realistic assessment. Being an attorney myself, I was impressed with Josh's astuteness and transparency. A top class lawyer that I will definitely turn to next time I have a labor issue.

Exceptional results
Josh assisted me with my severance negotiation and was able to increase the total amount by over ten thousand dollars. I would recommend Josh to anyone having an issue with their employer or previous employer.

Hire Josh
Josh was responsive to initial messages, reviewed my severance package in a couple of days and was able to propose languages that were accepted by employer. Would recommend Josh to anyone looking for employment/severance help.

Best Lawyer
I called Joshua at the last minute. Literally 1 hours before my deadline and he got to work! Joshua dropped everything went over my case and got me a way better compensation than initially offered. You guys won’t go wrong with Josh. Give him a call today.

Josh is very prompt and responsive
Initially when I reached out to Josh, I got an automated out-of-office message—he was out on vacation but responded to my text the evening of the last day of his vacation. He is extremely quick to respond, which is one of the most important qualities you could ask for in an attorney. In case helpful for others in similar circumstances, his usual turnaround for reviewing a separation agreement is 3 business days but you can expedite it with an extra fee. I recommend Josh to anyone who wants a review of an employment related contract. He is also very clearly knowledgable and experienced.

Consulted with Joshua, was a fantastic decision
I consulted with Joshua regarding a severance agreement. Over a dozen other lawyers told me my case was weak or not worth their time, even though I felt wronged by the job termination. If Joshua tells you he thinks he can help, and you're worried if it's worth the cost, my strong recommendation is to TRUST JOSHUA. I did that and got a huge increase in compensation, so I'm very satisfied.

His communication was prompt, clear, and always reassuring, which alleviated much of the stress associated with legal proceedings. Thanks to Joshua B Klugman's expertise and advocacy, I was able to secure a favorable resolution regarding my severance pay. His negotiation skills are exceptional. If you're in need of legal representation for employment-related matters, look no further. Joshua B Klugman is the best lawyer. I am truly grateful for his exceptional service and the favorable outcome he achieved on my behalf. Thank you, Joshua B Klugman, for your outstanding support and assistance.

Top Rated Talent: Best In Class Employment Lawyer
Finding an exceptionally competent employment lawyer can be a game-changer during the challenging times of negotiating severance packages, and without a doubt, I found such a professional in Mr. Klugman. From our initial consultation, I was struck by his straightforward approach—unflinching, direct, and admittedly a bit intimidating at first. Yet, it's this very quality that sets him apart and brings tremendous value to his clients. Mr. Klugman isn't one to sugarcoat or beat around the bush; instead, he dives deep into the core of your case, armed with an impressive command of employment law. His ability to listen is unparalleled. He doesn't just hear you out; he actively searches for the unique angle, the slightest legal leverage that could be used in your favor. It's this strategic mindset that enabled him to double my severance amount, a feat that speaks volumes of his expertise and negotiation skills. He is also efficient and works with a sense of urgency which alleviates stress during emotionally and financially taxing times. I rarely write reviews, but I felt so compelled to do so in this instance. Mr. Klugman is simply the best in business! To those facing employment disputes or severance negotiations, I cannot recommend Mr. Klugman enough.

Effective, efficient, and on point!
Mr. Klugman was a referral from another attorney. At first, skeptical about my chances of getting my point across to my previous employer was going to be impossible. Joshua was direct, honest, and to the point of what I needed to do and how he could help. His guidance got me the results that I was looking for in wrongful hiring practices by my previous employer. I would recommend his advice and open candor on approach, tasks, and follow through. Thanks.

Easily the best, very clear in his communication
I am a new business owner and have grown quickly. Without Mr. Klugman’s help and guidance I would be exhausted (and maybe ruined) right from the beginning. Very knowledgeable and has greatly and successfully helped me settle employment dispute cases well below what was asked/expected. Strongly recommended.

Very helpful
I really appreciate Josh's experience, and swift review of my document. What I found the most helpful was his no nonsense, level headed approach . As Judge Judy said "Common sense is not that common" and Josh definitely possesses it! Thanks again for the help!

Severance Settlement with Large International Corporation
I hired Joshua when I was given a severance package from my organization through a job elimination. The initial offer was below industry standards and did not meet my expectations so Josh went to work on my behalf, negotiating with my former employer to deliver a fair, quick, and SIGNIFICANTLY larger offer than what was initially presented. His persuasive arguments, knowledge of California law, and legal expertise delivered when it mattered most to me. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs a fighter on their side who stands up for the small guy against these types of organizations who are trying to worm away from their obligations and doing the right thing. I liked his work so much that I am going to use his consulting with new jobs that are coming my way to proactively protect my rights prior to starting at a new organization. Highly recommended!

Fast, responsive and genuine
From the outset, Joshua impressed me with his speed, responsiveness, and genuine willingness to help. He got to the point quickly, sparing me the hassle of enduring endless intake forms and preliminary consultations before even starting on the actual work. Joshua's approach is both professional and highly efficient. He demonstrated a deep understanding of the employment law coupled with a strong commitment to my best interests. His empathetic and supportive nature was a bonus, making him not just an attorney but a trusted advisor. Thank you, Joshua, for making such a complex and potentially stressful process smooth and manageable.

Severance agreement review
When I got laid off, Josh reviewed my severance agreement for me. He proposed several edits, but also made it clear which were must-have versus nice-to-have, in the event of any pushback from my former employer, and in the end I felt confident that my agreement was a fair one. Josh was ultra-responsive throughout, and used fair, flat-rate pricing. He finished the document review ahead of schedule, and was extremely helpful on the phone regarding my follow-up questions. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a severance agreement review.

Validating Attorney
I received a personal referral for Mr. Klugman. I reached out to him and my experience with him and his services were superb. He is absolutely outstanding in his profession. I had some work related matters that were highly stressful. He had a full grasp of my situation in an instant. He gave me the much needed confidence and reassurance for me to be more proactive in the process with my workplace situation. He explained my situation to me in great detail and gave me essential insight. I found Mr. Klugman to really be a genius. In addition, he is compassionate, extremely dedicated and tremendously thorough. Whether you are at the beginning of the process of your matter or are in search of a new professional relationship, you absolutely should have no hesitation in consulting with Mr. Klugman.

Responsive and Great Attention to Detail
I contacted and hired Joshua for review of a Separation Agreement. Although we had a tight deadline, Joshua took the time to explain each section, provide notes/proposed language, and took the time to answer any questions I had to help me understand the Agreement. I would recommend Joshua's services!
