Lisa is a pleasure to work with. When working with Lisa you always know that all bases are being covered. Lisa’s knowledge of the relevant law and her ability to deal with the matters at hand appropriately and efficiently are as good as they come. Lisa makes you feel like your problems are her problems.
I worked with Lisa on the contract negotiations for a recent promotion, where I was signing my first contract. She was excellent to work with. I have a great deal of experience with attorneys, and Lisa was exceptionally responsive, put my mind at ease on a few of the thorny issues, and always made me feel as though she was advocating for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know dealing with an employment question or issue, and I wouldn’t hesitate to seek her counsel again in the future. She brought me a great deal of peace of mind in an uncertain process.
We all spend more time at work than most other places in life. So when things end badly with your employer, it’s a huge ripple effect on other dynamics of life.
The stress I felt in trying to find a lawyer willing to listen to my situation (amongst applying to new jobs/caring for my new baby) was overwhelming, to say the least. I talked with multiple other attorneys who brushed off my story and simply wouldn’t take the time to carve out the details. That’s where Lisa is different in the best way possible. Lisa is dedicated and detail-oriented, with a keen eye for understanding the law. Her work ethic was admirable and she was always available to speak with me, in addition to being extremely clear with the plan that made the most sense for what outcome I desired. I couldn’t have been more happy with the work Lisa provided. Her partnership gave me much-needed closure from an unfortunate situation and allowed me to start a new chapter in life. I was so happy with the outcome and timeframe to which she was able to win my case. Thank you, Lisa, for all of your hard work!
I am so grateful to have been able to work alongside Lisa Fried-Grodin for the last 2+ yrs. Having never been through a formal litigation before, she was an amazing partner whose guidance and legal prowess were invaluable. Lisa acclimated quickly to industry related laws and regulations and as the case unfolded, she ensured we remained one step ahead. She is incredibly thorough, dedicated to her craft, and talented. Lisa has mastered the fine art of depositions and commences them having amply prepared in advance. So it was with exceptional clarity and intention that she’d effectively navigate multiple subjects, time frames, and facts, and drill right to the core of matters related to the case and the person being deposed. Valuable testimony was the outcome each and every time. Throughout the litigation process there were deadlines and processes where I needed more clarity. Lisa was accessible, very helpful in communicating with me on matters that were more legalese in nature, and assisted me with planning in preparation for each stage of the case. No one feels more strongly than the person initiating a lawsuit though Lisa was right by my side each and every step of the way navigating what can be a very confusing landscape. I cannot say enough about her professional acumen, commitment to her clients, and sheer talent.
I retained Lisa to represent me as she has experience representing both the employee and the employer. In this case, I was the employer. Lisa is an excellent listener. She quickly identified and understood the key issues at hand.
She was excellent with her attention to all of the details of my case. She was extremely timely in her communications back and forth both with me and with opposing attorney and, regularly monitored due dates from opposing attorney and initiated contact when needed. She reviewed with me both pros and cons of different strategies. Lisa was very professional and prompt in her communications with me both verbal and written. She was very easy to talk to and to arrive at an agreed upon approach. I always felt extremely confident in Lisa’s representation of me and her thoroughness when it came to applying the law to my case. I also felt personally supported by Lisa at all times throughout the process and again, always felt that I was listened to. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case; an outcome that is much better than I could have ever expected. Lisa did whatever it took to keep the case moving with the goal of getting it resolved as quickly as possible. And, Lisa made the process seamless particularly given the current COVID situation. I would highly recommend Lisa and her firm to anyone who has an Employment Law situation either as the employee or the employer. Lisa is an excellent Employment Law attorney.
