Words from our clients

I hired Ms. Chaney to negotiate a settlement with my employer after an unexpected termination. She was professional, responsive and kind. She is able to piece together information to determine my history of the working relationships between myself and work colleagues in order to develop the best achievable outcome for me. This insight was the most impressive and made me realize how fortunate I was to have been referred to her … This was the most difficult experience of my career and Ms. Chaney helped me navigate it with compassion and understanding … I will have Ms. Chaney review any and all employment contracts for me in the future to avoid making the mistakes I have made this time without her.
