Great listener
Over the last six years, Jenae has been a great sounding board and knowledgeable advisor to me in my role as a restaurant risk manager. She is a great listener and researcher and always provides practical recommendations for handling complicated labor issues. She has also conducted employment law training for my clients and was very well received. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so.

Excelent Source of Information
I am in charge of a small medical practice consisting of three doctors and 30 support staff. The practice has worked with Janae's firm, Randall Danskin, for many years. Their assistance has been invaluable and guided us through some difficult times. Recently we have worked with Jenae Ball on employment issues. She helped us create an updated employee handbook, identify HR issues and how to solve them, and been readily available to any questions that we have had.
