Highly Recommended
Paul was extremely effective at pursuing and negotiating an employment claim for me regarding unpaid wages and equity. It is clear that he is well-versed in employment law - I was very impressed with his scope of knowledge. He explained everything to me in an easy-to-understand manner and kept me informed along the way. I would highly recommend Paul for expert representation in employment matters.
