I Highly recommend Stevens & McMillan for Sexual harassment in the workplace and wrongful termination cases
The employment lawyers at Stevens and McMillan were amazing! I originally found them on Yelp and because of their great reviews decided to call for some legal employee-employer advice on Sexual harassment in the workplace and wrongful termination cases. I didn't expect to speak with one of the lawyers initially but I did on my first call and give them HUGE points right there! Dan listened to my story with and he explained to me how the law would work in regards to my specific situation. He gave me several different scenarios of how it could play out the best possible source of action. The conversation took about 20 minutes, and at no charge I must add. I highly recommend Daniel and his firm Stevens & McMillan Employment Lawyers based on the care I received, the patience and thoughtful observation and constructive feedback. - Jeffery
