    Client Comments

    "Dave Radelet is a professional in every respect. He is strategic, deeply experienced in all areas of employment law, he listens to and accommodates our business interests and he is forthright about our legal issues and our strategies for success. His entire team is incredibly responsive, practical and efficient. Dave makes every client feel like they are the #1 priority within his firm and he gives each of us his personal attention and commitment. Dave embodies what every client desires in its relationship with outside counsel: solid legal expertise, practical business approaches, realistic strategies for success (with alternative approaches offered), a keen sensitivity to costs, and a respectful and disarming approach with employees of the client. Dave is a pleasure to work with on any kind of labor or employment matter."
    "You expect that an attorney will understand the law and provide you advice and guidance on issues that pertain to the law. When it comes to Labor Law, Jim Franczek is a recognized authority. More important though is to have a lawyer who truly understands your business. Jim is so very in tune with the changing nature of our business. He understands that changes have impacts that to some would be hard to see, but which to him are second nature. In dealing with large complex and complicated issues you need to have an attorney who can see three, four, or even five steps down the road. Jim is such an attorney. Many times his counsel has helped our organization make the right strategic decision which is possible because of his comprehensive understanding of our industry. Quite frankly, if I am going into negotiations and if I am trying to orchestrate change, I want Jim Franczek on my side."
    - David Causton
    Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority
    "Jim Franczek is the perfect balance of expertise, experience, insight, and case management. He personally fosters regular client communication and manages the client relationship better than his peers. I would not hesitate to recommend for labor strategy and/or collective bargaining work."

    "Jim is one of the best labor and employment lawyers I have ever worked with. His approach to the art and science of the labor complexities are bar none."
    "Ron Hein is a real professional in working on matters. He is knowledgeable, always prepared, and takes a personal interest in his clients. I have worked with Ron for several years in the areas of labor relations, EEOC, Affirmative Action, and severance. I count Ron as a trusted advisor and friend."
