“As a young adult I was faced with needing a lawyer to fight a previous employer for wages I was owed. And after a very long three years my case is finally over! Im an honest believer without Barkan Meizlish I wouldn’t have gotten this far. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping. I wish this office the best of luck, and if I ever run into this type of problem again this will be my first stop!”
Works very hard on your case treats you like family .. very trust worthy!!
“great people. the attorney we are with took the time to explain everything, all processes that we will go through and even admitted that our case may be premature and we may need to wait for the process with BWC and my employer to proceed before filing any case. Not all attorneys are money hungry!!”
