Testimonials From Clients With Discrimination & Harassment Cases BLG Has Handled

From A Private School Teacher With A Disability Claim

Outstanding law firm, willing to listen to their clients and get the results everyone wants. I would tell the particulars, but I cannot because of the settlement terms

From A Female Executive with a Charge at the NY City Commission on Human Rights

Amazing gets the job done!

The Boyd Law Group was very supportive through the process. They worked hard and diligently from start to finish. They were very responsive and ensured I understood my rights and were there every step of the way. I can't thank both Patrick and Lorena enough for all the hard work they put in for me through this emotional process. True professionals! Thank you so much!

From a Fashion Executive With A Maternity Leave Case

Extremely Professional and Supportive

Patrick Boyd was my lawyer for an employment case that was based around my maternity leave. He was extremely supportive, very communicative and professional throughout my entire case. I got the outcome I desired and would highly recommend him for any employment and labor issues. 5 stars all around.

From An Executive With Sexual Harassment Claims

I am a former client of the Boyd Law Group and was very impressed by their level of professionalism, knowledge and discretion that was applied to my case. I worked with one of the associates as well as the founder Patrick Boyd. Both were very thorough in their research, knew to ask the right questions to undercut the opposing party who was never as prepared. Patrick is also very personable and an excellent negotiator who will get you the best possible settlement. I would not hesitate to recommend Patrick and his firm to any potential client and in fact, I already have.

From The Parent Of An Ivy League Student With Discrimination Claims

I recommend Mr. Boyd without reservation and with great appreciation and respect. This is not something I say lightly. Mr. Boyd provided superb legal advice and intervention.

Without Mr. Boyd's help, guidance, and most of all action we would never have be able to resolve our problem; with his help we did and were reimbursed for what we had paid the institution as well as Mr. Boyd's fees.

Mr. Boyd very quickly understood our predicament and more importantly understood how to resolve it. He did so with great finesse and a well worked out strategy, both indispensable when challenging an institution of almost unlimited resources.

I think that the clearest recommendation I could give him is that when a close friend found himself in serious trouble with his educational institution, I recommended Mr. Boyd to him. With precisely the same combination of finesse, strategy and empathy he resolved my friend's extremely perilous situation.

From A Wall Street Executive With A Sexual Orientation Discrimination Claim

Patrick, Steve and the team at The Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than I would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching The Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice.

Sales Executive With A Sexual Harassment Claim

Patrick and Steven are extremely professional. They made me feel valued as a client and had excellent follow up. I of course was also pleased with how they were able to resolve my case in a timely fashion. I highly recommend the Boyd Law Group.

From An Executive With A Disability Discrimination Case

Stephen Bourtin conducted a case for me against my previous employer. He consistently provided intelligent and sound counsel as he guided me through a long and difficult process. The end result was far better than I expected (we won!). He did FANTASTIC work for me and I can't recommend him highly enough.

From A Client With A Race Discrimination Case Against A Construction Company

Stephen is a great attorney to hire if you are expecting to see good results. Excellent professional services. Highly recommend him.
