"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."

"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), Chicago, IL

"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."

- George Greene (Starwood Hotels and Resorts), New York, NY
