TestimonialsWhat people say about Ben Tarnow
Ben’s counsel and support were invaluable during a very stressful time for me and my family. Ben brought about a speedy and just result that more than compensated for my period of unemployment.
I was in really bad shape after I was fired from my job as a successful salesman for over 15 years. Ben came highly recommended to me by a friend who had used his services several months earlier. I was very worried about the potential consequences of taking legal action against my former employer, but that was before I knew what my rights were. Ben took the time to explain everything to me, including the obligations of my employer, and the terms of the contract I had signed, detailing what was enforceable and what was not. In the end, Ben got me a fantastic settlement without starting a lawsuit.
The company I had worked at for over 30 years had been recently bought by another company. Within a few weeks, I was given 12 months working notice. My desire was to at least have the working notice period extended closer to when I had anticipated retiring – and Ben was able to achieve this for me. Now, I am coming close to the end of my working career, close to as scheduled, and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out.
Ben was a refreshing change of pace from the lawyers I have dealt with in the past. He is personable, approachable, and it is very obvious that he has his clients’ best interests in mind throughout the entire process.
I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn regarding a new job opportunity. I was provided with an offer of employment, and an employment contract. Due to the specialized nature of my position, the contract was quite complex. I forwarded the documents to Ben, and he wasted no time in breaking everything down into terms I could understand. He helped me revise the contract to include terms that I felt were necessary. Ultimately, Ben helped me secure my dream job, and I can’t thank him enough.
