A Representation Of Testimonials From Clients With Executive Contract Negotiations BLG Has Handled

From A Human Resources Executive Negotiating A Severance Package

I sought a recommendation for legal counsel on a personal employment matter – something I am never inclined to do. I was referred to Patrick and The Boyd Law Group and without hesitation decided he was the right person to partner with on my matter. Patrick listened carefully, thoughtfully and offered wise guidance and support throughout the process. I just wanted my settlement to be done but he helped me to advocate for what was a better and fairer outcome for me. Without hesitation I would recommend him to others seeking guidance.

From A Publishing Executive - Severance Package Negotiations 5.0 Stars

Patrick was there for me from the beginning, taking me under his wing during a very stressful period. His sound legal judgment kept me grounded and protected my rights. He was always available for consultation, even at night. He works extra hard for his clients. I feel he became more than my lawyer, but a friend, too.

From An Executive With Stock And Executive Compensation Issues

When my employer conducted a "reorganization" and suddenly fired a half dozen top management people including me, I needed an experienced attorney to quickly review my situation with respect to labor laws which may have been violated and compensation which was due to me but the employer was refusing to pay. Steve got on the case immediately, identified my rights, and quickly put the employer on the defensive. His efforts resulted in the desired outcome. Most important, Steve was a pleasure to work with, and made a difficult situation much easier on me.

William was retained to aid in employment dispute matter. He has excellent qualifications, experience and showed prudence in representing me. He always operated transparently and communication helped to alleviate my concerns and keep me apprised of progress. As a result, we were able to settle in a effective and efficient manner. I highly recommend William and his law firm The Boyd Law Group.
