    It’s truly been a pleasure working with Aaron and the women on his team. I will definitely be referring people to them simply because they not only handled this matter professionally, but also empathetically during a really hard time for me. Dealing with wrongful termination and discrimination and especially during a global pandemic, it was really important to find an employment attorney who could understand the situation, the subtleties, nuances, etc. The case was resolved relatively quickly and I felt that they really put in the time to end up with a favorable outcome. If you choose them, you’re really in great hands.
