Our experience with Larry Pearson of Wigdor was excellent. He took the time to get to know us, understand our perspective, and assuage any concerns we had. He and his associate Ken were extremely responsive and attentive to our questions, calls and requests for meetings along the way. In addition, he managed our expectations well. Overall, we were thrilled with the representation that Larry provided to us, not just for the result, but for the entire process

Wigdor attorneys are professional, calm, fair, above animosity or brinksmanship. The firm is discrete, confidential, concern for the client is paramount. Attorneys are even-keeled, able to acknowledge emotional issues while tempering them with the understanding that each situation is unique. Some cases may be public and contentious, while others require confidentiality. There is a reason the firm’s reputation is able to pivot based on the client’s needs.

I found Wigdor LLP to be highly respected, well established and a force to be reckoned with in the field of employment law and litigation. The team that represented me included Partner Michael J. Willemin and Associates Kenneth Walsh and Hilary Orzick. They were highly knowledgeable, professional and had a laser-like focus and listened intently to every morsel of detail in my case. They wanted to know everything and anything - the good, the bad, the favorable and unfavorable in order to launch the most aggressive and complete strategy. It was clear from the get-go that Mr. Willemin is an attorney of the highest caliber and ethics and had a wealth of experience in employment law. I felt very comfortable and fortunate that was in the best legal hands and just knew that justice and my rights would be vindicated. The firm's record and numerous verdicts speak for themselves, and no one that has been wronged at work should hesitate in calling Wigdor LLP if they want the best possible outcome and results in the most realistic and expeditious manner.

I have been represented by the following team of attorneys at Wigdor LLP: Douglas H. Wigdor, David E. Gottlieb, and Julia L. Elmaleh-Sachs. The comments below are fully and equally applied to these 3 attorneys as well as to the broader firm. With respect to client service, my partnership with Wigdor LLP has been nothing short of perfection from the moment I first entered their office, I have been made to feel comfortable and also like I am truly being "heard" which may sound immaterial, but actually was a critical factor in my retention of their firm. The client experience that they deliver is unique and very much benefits from their focus on cross-firm collaboration, which based on my experience, is a principle that's embedded in their DNA. The result of this is not just a more robust final outcome, but a bespoke experience that was tailored to me, something only achievable when working with a boutique, as opposed to a larger firm with everyone from paralegals to Douglas Wigdor himself integrally involved in my case as well as my personal progress. I didn’t feel like just another client, I actually felt like a member of a close-knit team working towards a common goal, with my opinions considered carefully and often incorporated into our collective decision making. All-in, they exhibited care and compassion, making it crystal clear that they have my best interest at heart and are honored to be able to help me with such an important issue. I've worked with numerous law firms in the past, but the bedside manner at Wigdor is something special and exceptionally rare. From a strategy and process standpoint, there was never a single moment where Doug, David, and Julia didn’t make me feel fully aware of our course of action, the motivation for said plan, the implications, as well as our ability to pivot at a moment's notice as situational dynamics evolved. I fully admit that I am a "higher touch" client in most scenarios, yet they have shown an unwavering commitment to being extraordinarily responsive, making themselves available at all times day and night, to answer any questions I had. In fact, despite the unfortunate circumstances, I am so grateful to this team because of how much they have taught me throughout this process. Additionally, Wigdor LLP is on the "bleeding edge" with respect to employment law and consistently impressed me with their innovative data visualization techniques to both explain the law (crucial given I am a lay person) and my case specifically. Their innovative approach to complement the traditional practice of law, using insights gleaned from data, serves to further buttress the services they provide and allows their clients to make better and more informed decisions. Through an execution and results lens, Doug, David, and Julia have proven time and time again that they are the attorneys who own the conversation and remain comfortable even during the most difficult of situations. That said, it's not just about keeping a level head, watching this team in action I have seen the full heat of their negotiating firepower felt by those on the other side of the table. Their individual and collective intellectual horsepower afford them the ability to quickly take the first and second derivatives of what’s being discussed, allowing them to deliver rebuttals on the fly leaving opposing parties speechless, a truly invaluable talent in this space. My hope is that I never need to engage an employment attorney again in my career. That said, should another situation ever arise, without hesitation, Wigdor LLP would be the first number I would call. I can't put into words the respect and appreciation that I have for this firm, it’s capabilities, and the professionals who work there.

I have had nothing but first-class support from the first meeting onward. My legal team at Wigdor went over and above to understand my specific issue and have gone above and beyond with communication, preparation, and feedback. I knew to be successful with my case I needed the best law firm I could find, so I reached out to different lawyers and firms and during my search another well-respected lawyer said, "if you want the best reach out to David Gottlieb at Wigdor." I was extremely fortunate that he took the time to meet with me and take my case. He has been nothing but an ultimate professional that not only has the tenacity and experience to represent the client's best interest, but he is also extremely compassionate in understanding just how emotionally difficult it is for the client. Wigdor is a first-class operation and I see that with not only how David has handled the case but also his associate Ken Walsh.
