Larry has been a great resource for several years. His response time, quality of response and follow up are excellent. He has been flexible enough to answer an impromptu calI and get a response back within an hour. I recall talking to Larry early one morning when there was 8" of snow and most businesses were closed. He was the only one in the office to keep my appointment.
I have recommended Larry to more than a dozen of my friends and colleagues and I feel very comfortable recommending him to anyone.
I strongly recommend this firm — so much so I once referred a colleague who they also helped. The firm is focused on their client’s specific issues, and unlike other attorneys I’ve worked with, they keep ongoing communication with you as the case advances. I am impressed with the professionalism and strong leadership from the staff, and deeply grateful for their good work.
I am grateful to Larry and his team. They did an excellent job of educating me about the legal process and keeping me updated on the status of my case. They had first hand knowledge about employment law in that they worked to get some of the legislation established.
Larry Schaefer is an incredible leader with an outstanding team of experts. They listen and care about their clients and work very hard on your behalf, educating you on your rights and guiding you through the process along the way. Everyone on the team is helpful and kind. 5 stars.
They were attentive and responsive and dod a great job of diffusing the tension in a situation that could have been quite adversarial. They also did an excellent job of level setting before the process proceeded to far in an unrealistic direction. Great work.
If I could give 1.5 stars, I would. Whereas I'm confident that Larry is indeed a friend of those who have so praised him here, in so far as they are mostly (if not entirely) corporate-side clients, he is by no means a friend of the victim. He did little to no actual work for me other than to engage in some egocentric dance with the opposing counsel, whose approval and even admiration he seems to have endlessly sought over a number of years, and to parade a gigantic binder of paper in front of the other side and the mediator during discussions. I still have no idea what was in it, given that he could not seem to locate one single piece of relevant documentation within it and seemed far from familiar with any details of the relevant items, dates, or facts which had been provided to him. He twice during mediation snapped at me - his client, the victim - in a condescending and derisory manner and had to be stopped from semi-berating me at one point by his colleague, Jean Boler. So far up his own considerable backside is he that he actually thought I felt I had won that day; that I actually was pleased with his (entire lack of) performance. Jean knew better and sensed that he needed to walk quickly away. I didn't settle for that day's result because it was okay with me; I settled because I knew I could not leave my destiny in his hands and needed to take care of myself, as I always have. As a person, I like Jean a great deal more, but she likewise was not familiar with the case file and even seemed surprised when I said that everything had been provided for them chronologically AS THEY HAD REQUESTED, yet she had never accessed or looked at the file. I could go on and on and on, but hopefully anyone who has been a victim and who needs sincere, engaged, and meaningful help will get the point: this is not the firm for you. This is the McDonald's drive thru - the veritable ambulance chaser equivalent - of employee/victim legal representation. You can do better, so please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
I am a physician who recently hired Schaefer and Halleen to represent me in an employment discrimination case, my Atty was Jean Boler ESQ.
They provided top-tier legal services to me for my case 2017 through my settlement in 1st qtr of 2018.
This was excellent legal representation, specifically - very responsive, very prompt, extremely detailed and never off-putting.
Absolutely would recommend without reservation!
