My lawsuit was about sexual harassment and I wanted to find an attorney that would understand my situation. I had just been through a very difficult time and the lawsuit was even more stressful. Amy has an amazing ability to make people feel comfortable. Her confidence really gave me the strength to get through. I would recommend Amy Semmel to anyone needing representation. Amy is strategic, tough and incredibly talented.
If you are looking for good representation with someone to literally guide you through a tough time in your life then stop because you found her. Amy Semmel will handle your case informing you and making sure you understand the process. I was pleased with Amy Semmel and the entire staff.

Powerful and extremely influential in her field of expertise, I could not believe how utterly protected I was! I will never be able to thank Amy Semmel enough! So, thank you my friend! You are awesome! This is how it goes with Amy. Trust me, if you work with Amy, she will become your friend too! She is simply remarkable! I needed help this past year, and although time was tight, I found Amy Semmel! I would like to tell anyone that reads this post... please, call Amy! Don't wait. From wrongful termination, to any number of complex and complicated employment scenarios, believe me, Amy knows exactly what to do! Most importantly, if you have a heart like I do, Amy is a sincerely compassionate, highly educated and caring human being! It didn't matter what time of day it was, my calls were always (and I mean always) answered and returned. I was given massive doses of the dignity and care that I craved, in my greatest moment of need. Our lives are formed in memories of the paths that we create. Amy joined me along my path and for that, I am so fortunate.

I am grateful for having found Amy and to have had the great fortune to have her represent my case. Any instance when a lawyer is deemed necessary is not an ideal life experience but with Amy I always felt well supported and informed. The greatest lessons learned were that no defendant will admit wrong doing and the facts as you interpret them are just that , your interpretation. Working with Amy I learned for the first time about about being a plaintiff and being well represented. The initial screening process seemed a bit stringent but in retrospect it was very necessary to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my case so as not to waste time and resources. I emerged from my experience much the wiser and have and will use what I have learned from Amy to protect my livelihood. I am very satisfied with the handling of my case and would not hesitate to refer any individual to Amy in regards to employment disputes.

I know Amy from a professional organization of which we are both members. I know her to be a genuine Attorney who truly cares about her clients. She is selective with the cases she takes on because she fully commits herself and puts all her energy into the client's matter. Amy regularly obtains settlements in the high hundreds of thousands range, as well as some in seven figures. She has tried numerous cases to verdict, some for employees and some for employers. She also will not hesitate to take the case to trial if necessary as she is a diligent and zealous litigator. Amy is highly experienced in all employment matters, but her passion is representing clients dealing with retaliation for whistleblowing and reporting discrimination. I highly endorse and recommend Amy because her clients can count on her to achieve the results they deserve.
