Very Helpful with Non-Compete Agreement
Mr. Munsinger helped me thoroughly understand the non-compete agreement I was bound to from an employer, and then walked me through the process of resigning and planning my next steps. Without Damien's help, I would not have had a smooth experience, nor would I have had the knowledge to make several informed, necessary decisions. It was a great, helpful experience from day one.

Wasting no time giving valuable advice
I dropped in on a Thursday near end of the day to talk to Damien about an imminent termination and a severance agreement to be signed around mid-day the next day. Damien listened carefully and asked relevant questions about the surrounding situation. He was able to quickly determine that litigation was a no-go, but that the severance agreement could be improved by requesting employer to add certain language, and he spelled out that language for me. The next day, the request was approved, the language added, and the agreement signed. Damien wasted no time and did not withhold his valuable advice even while in his initial free consultation. So why shouldn’t he be anyone’s first call?

Collaborator and Excellent Follow through
Damien was always responsive to my billion questions and also a very good listener and educator. Also he had a sense of rationality and ethics when dealing with my case. No sugar coating, straight and to the point. It was a great success!

Helpful, Efficient and A Great Team
Damien and his associate, Ann Marie, were incredible while helping me navigate a messy employer discrimination/wrongful termination matter. Damien was incredibly prompt, helpful and kind throughout the process. Neither he nor Ann Marie every had an issue jumping on a call to help answer any questions I might have. While the process was complicated and challenging, Damien and team were able to negotiate a resolution that exceeded what I had expected (and even approved) in a much shorter time-frame than I was prepared for. If you need an employment attorney, Damien and Ann Marie should, without question, be your first call!

Responsive, Friendly, Precise
Damien helped me a review an offer from a potential employer. He was very accessible, very responsive, probed in good places, helped me make the offer better, helped me shape the way I asked for these changes, and extremely friendly AND professional. He came from a place of lots of experience and this allowed him to be both fast and precise. I would highly recommend his services.

When no one else would listen...
Both Damien and Jose were quick to see that I had been wronged by my previous employer. Other attorneys basically told me to file a BOLI claim, which would have taken forever, and precluded me from seeking penalty wages. Jose took my case on quickly, and wasted no time getting to work. Damien then stepped in, and finished my case in amazing time! These gentlemen are extremely professional and proficient in their field, while at the same time retaining a personable relationship with me. I felt that at any time I could ask either of them anything about the status of my case, and they would respond without hesitation, and in a way that made me feel like I mattered to them. I can't say enough about Klein Munsinger. I would recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance with any wage issue.

Physician
Needed help on an employment matter. Damien responded to our requests immediately. He was not only very fast but also very knowledgeable about our problem and eager to help. He was incredibly supportive during a very stressful time. I recommend him highly!

Excellent attorney
I hired Damien to review a severance agreement. Damien is great. Very professional. I felt very confident working with Damien, who was very responsive to all communications, concerns and questions. He gave sound advice throughout the process. Needless to say, I am very satisfied with the outcome and I highly recommend his services to anyone who may need proper, capable legal counsel.

Not Messing Around
I hired Damien to assist in dealing with a lawsuit filed by a disgruntled former employee. Throughout the entire process he gave me solid advice, was available and prompt in communication, followed through with his duties, and genuinely championed my cause. I feel I achieved the best outcome and would hire Damien again should the need arise, though I'm hoping to put this to bed forever.
