Highly Recommend!
When I first reached out to Cortney and her team regarding my sexual harassment case, I was scared and did not know what to expect. However, Cortney made me feel seen and heard. I was able to put my confidence in her and her team and I am so grateful that I did. She made the whole mediation process as seamless as possible and it felt good knowing that I had her on my side. Cortney helped me get my life back and I am so grateful for all of her hard work.

Incredible!
When I first talked to Courtney she made me feel so comfortable telling my sexual harassment story. She encouraged and sympathized with me and made me feel safe. She is extremely knowledgeable, strong, and fierce! Her firm Shegerian Conniff is full of amazing, talented, and passionate attorneys that will fight for you! I will always be appreciative of them for helping resolve my case.

She was one of two attorneys on my case, and I throughly respect her for everything she has helped me with. Sexual assault and harassment and employment wrongdoing is always hard to just deal with in general. Her and her law firm made the entire experience a lot more peaceful and comforting. I thoroughly enjoyed having her as a lawyer and I completely trust her and the law firm’s abilities. I recommend them completely. If you’re looking for a caring and personable lawyer that’s her and the law firm.

Sexual Harassment Attorney
Being sexually harassed is humiliating. Talking about it with someone means you have to relive the experience and the trauma that goes with it. I didn't want to ever have to deal with it again but I want some type of Justice. I felt afraid and nervous because I know that defense attorneys would try to make me seem like an awful human. After speaking with Cortney I felt as much relief that I could feel at the time. Each time I spoke with her she conducted herself with sympathy and she validated my feelings of being abused by my employer. I feel indebted to Cortney because of how professional and diligent she was with my case.

Thank you for everything
Courtney was an amazing person to have by my side throughout the process of my sexual harassment case. She was a very professional individual and did not once make me feel like she wasn’t taking the case or me in a serious matter. I can’t thank her and Levon for all the help they have done for me it means the world.

GREAT LAWYER AND WONDERFUL PERSON
I hired Cortney as my lawyer in my sexual harassment case. Not only was she extremely effective and settled my case in a short amount of time but she exceeded my expectations. She always checked on me and even helped me get into therapy and get back on my feet after what happened. I am extremely grateful especially since I didn't think I had a case after I talked to other lawyers, I was very down. I feel like she really fought for me. I am so grateful for everything she has done. I would highly recommend her.

Cortney shegerian is an amazing attorney! I am so lucky I was referred to her by another attorney who didn’t handle employment cases. She took care of my sexual harassment case and I felt like she made sure that I got the justice that I knew and felt I deserved. On top of it, the person who was harassing me was fired!

The Best of the Best
Cortney Shegerian is a brilliant and devoted attorney. While working together, she always made me feel like the results of my case were personally important to her. She fought for me and had more empathy than I ever could have imagined any attorney giving. I am extremely thankful - I would not have made it through this without her, and I give her my highest recommendation. Thank you, Cortney!

Client review
Cortney, Heather and the staff at Shegerian Conniff were extremely helpful to me. They worked diligently on my case and I have the highest praise and respect for their team! Cortney was prompt in responding to my initial inquiry, made calls on my behalf immediately and surpassed my expectations. She made the process very clear; she was easy to talk to and walked me through each step along the way. I had total confidence in her. I would highly recommend Cortney to anyone in need of representation. It’s nice to know that there’s attorney’s out there who still care!

Extremely kind and helpful Employment Lawyer
Cortney Shegerian is one of the best lawyers I've ever encountered. I met with her and her partner, Heather, at a really vulnerable time for me. She was extremely helpful in explaining the relevant law regarding my potential case against my employer and provided advice on how to best protect my job. She was focused on what was the best outcome for me instead of what was a potentially beneficial outcome for her. And she was super patient and kind throughout the meeting. I would recommend her and her partner, Heather, to ANYONE who has been wrongfully fired, harassed or discriminated against at their job. Or to anyone who thinks that they might be getting wrongfully fired, harassed or discriminated against.

Helpful and Professional Lawyer
Cortney Shegerian was so helpful and professional. She was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable and a good listener, answered my questions and gave me advice on how to proceed next. Although I didn't end up being their client, she still treated me like one with followup email, I can only imagine how well they will take care of their clients.

Best Law Firm
I reached out to Shegerian & Associates firm a couple of years ago regarding a case of retaliatory termination. Cortney Shegerian was very helpful and patient throughout the process. She answered all of my questions and kept me updated. Needless to say that she won my case and I was very happy with the settlement. I will definitely be seeking her services again should I need them in the future.
