"Lynne Bernabei is the best attorney practicing in employment law in Washington! She has years of experience, responds to clients right away, always has the details of my case at the forefront of her mind, and is very cost-effective. She has excellent client relations skills. The bottom line is that when I need her, she is there, and she delivers results. That's what I want in a lawyer."

- Robin Ingle, Kensington, MD

"I have dealt with attorneys my whole career, and have not liked most of them on a personal or professional level. Lynn is an exception to that rule. She is a great attorney, and is genuine in her communications; there is no guessing where she stands on any issue. Like it or not, she does not put a spin on anything for her benefit or yours. Lynn knows her business and gets the job done. She is not intimidated by anyone. If I needed an attorney, Lynn would be the first I would call."

- Steven Doran (S.L. Doran & Associates), Mesa, AZ

"Lynne Bernabei is an extraordinarily gifted attorney. By any standards or measures that an attorney might be judged by, she merits an "EXCEPTIONAL" rating - the BEST of the BEST in her practice areas! Lynne is very pleasant, courteous, and easy to work with as well. Overall, she is a wonderful person. Lynne Bernabei's wisdom, judgment, substantive knowledge and expertise, tactical skills, negotiating and other communication skills, professional practices, ethical standards - indeed, every aspect of her professional character and qualifications - are SUPERIOR by any measure or standard. She is both "book smart" and also a talented tactician. The combination makes her an extremely effective and efficient legal tactician in court, administrative proceedings, arbitration/mediation/ADR, and negotiations with adversaries - any forum! Lynne Bernabei is a truly exceptional attorney/counselor/adviser!"

- Stephen Bouchard, New York, NY

"Lynne Bernabei spearheaded my $1million successful win from the University of California for my wrongful termination at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Attorney Bernabei superbly presented my case, bringing UC's legal staff to their knees, and resulting in my significant settlement."

- Glenn Walp, PhD (City of Apache Junction), Gold Canyon, AZ

"Ms. Bernabei was wonderful in helping me get through a very difficult workplace-related issue. She clearly knew her stuff, was assertive in sticking up for me, and truly functioned as my advocate. With her help, I was able to move on to the next step in my career. I have recommended her to others with similar problems."

- Roberta Sonnino (Creighton University), Omaha, NE

"Lynne Bernabei has an excellent understanding of what's possible, what's realistic, and how to maximize the strengths of a case when there appears to be limited options. Her years in the business, historical knowledge of prior cases, awareness of environmental trends, and understanding of personalities on the bench all add to more efficient handling of individual cases. She and her staff have been a pleasure to work with as we maximized our strengths against a corporate giant in industry, thereby delivering a fair and just remedy for this client who was in harms way."

- Robert J. Doleman (Spacenet, Inc.), McLean, VA
