Corey Hanrahan is the MAN!
Corey and I spoke on the phone several times over a period of a few months determining if I had a case. Every time we spoke Corey was pleasant, positive, never pushy and always brutally honest setting realistic expectations regarding a settlement. I truly believe Corey's first and main concern is his clients. On my mediation day Corey was in total control and the amount I was awarded was, well, I'll just say I'm VERY VERY VERY Happy with Mr Corey Hanrahan! Thank you so Much Corey!!

Wrongful Termination
"I was a very long term, dedicated and hardworking employee of more than twenty years. Unfortunately, my employer eventually decided it was time to replace me with a much younger employee. Despite my flawless employment history, and great record of performance, the company claimed to terminate me because I was an "at-will" employee. I was referred to Attorney Hanrahan by a personal friend. Attorney Hanrahan made it clear to me that we had an uphill battle, but that he was willing to fight for me. Attorney Hanrahan was knowledgeable, honest, and very responsive. Attorney Hanrahan was able to secure me a great settlement and the satisfaction of clearing my good name."

Wrongful termination
When meeting Corey I was very impressed with his professionalism. We worked together on my case for a little over two years and during that time Corey kept contact with me every step of the way providing all information I needed as well as answering any questions I had about my case in a fast and timely manner. I was able to feel confident in my case and the person that was representing me thanks too the hard work and commutation Corey put forth . I am extreamly satisfied with my outcome along with the person I was able to work with.

Mr. Hanrahan is not only an excellent Attorney, he is also one of the nicest people I have ever met. He handled a matter for me with confidence, ease and displayed great strategic skills and perfect timing. I felt very comfortable in his presence. My experience with Corey was Labor and Employment Law and I recommend him 150 percent.

Wrongful termination
I reached out to this lawyer concerning my wrongful termination of employment and he said that he couldn’t help me. My question is why? I gave a good case and the manager where I was employed withheld my final check and demanded I sign several post dated write ups. In my humble opinion that is not legal at all. What am I supposed to do, take this company on all by myself? No I prefer to be represented by a lawyer rather than do it alone. Unfortunately it is so hard to get a lawyer to take cases now a days it’s ridiculous. There has to be a easier way to get represented.

Response from Corey Hanrahan January 15, 2018
I sincerely apologize if you are unhappy with me, or the consultation that I provided, in any way. I do my best to only take cases that I feel are meritorious, and cases that I feel I can be successful for the clients. Filing a lawsuit on someone's behalf where there is no merit or legitimate claims opens that person up to liability for substantial costs, as well as possible attorney's fees. While I do agree that what happened to you at work is unfair, that does not make it unlawful. I am only able to sue for unlawful conduct, and not simply conduct that was unfair. I wish you the best, and again apologize for anything I may have done that caused your unhappiness.

Employment and labor Attorney | Sep 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Corey Hanrahan is a superb attorney. I had previously reached out to his old firm because of the reputation it had in the community for employment law. What I discovered shocked me. His old boss had zero people skills and it was actually Corey who worked with me and gave me the information I needed to handle the legal issue I was working on. I just recently ran into Corey, where he is a member of the Louis Welsh Inn of Court, and he informed me that he is now on his own in private practice. Super move for an outstanding attorney. I enthusiastically endorse this lawyer. He is smart, knowledgeable, and hard working."
