Quote Mark
I was assigned to Tamara, and from day one, she made a conscious attempt at understanding all the facts, and asking all the right questions. She kept me updated at every step of the way, and when time came, she calmly argued for me - which is exactly what anyone who has suffered a job loss would want - someone to speak up for you. She strikes the perfect balance between empathizing with your situation, while fighting for you. I highly recommend these folks - you'd be lucky to have them in your camp when things go wrong.

My overall experience with this firm was nothing less than superior.
Quote Mark
Tamara Slater, from the moment she was assigned to me, made herself available 24/7. She tirelessly worked to save my job and make sure that my rights as an employee were heard. I cannot say enough good things about the law firm she represents. Based upon my experience, words cannot express gratitude for her compassion and efficiency. It is good to have a lawyer who has a level head that, in a second, can calm you down. Thank you, Tamara, so very much for all that you have done for me. It is absolutely invaluable.
