”I had lost my job through no fault of my own. I was devastated and scared to say the least! Jason Erlich and his team took my case. They were always respectful with my fears and concerns. As the case progressed, Jason assisted me in my case, he was very responsive, knowledgable and helped me understand the process which helped ease my fears. With Jason's expertise, commitment and aggressiveness, the case is now over and it's only been 6 months!! I would HIGHLY recommend Jason Erlich to anyone that needs an employment lawyer. I am so grateful and lucky for finding him!"

"I can honestly say that my experience with Bryan was all the way positive from day one… From the start Bryan was very professional and down to earth. Bryan dissected every element of the case and was very honest and upfront about what I would expect in the end. We had very high expectations about our case and in the end we got what we hoped for. I am beyond satisfied with the outcome of our case and I'm happy I met Bryan and recommend him and his team to anybody looking for real professionals."
