From the moment I reached out to the team, they were responsive and professional. Zack Holzberg helped me weigh all my options and potential courses of action and he set realistic expectations from day 1. The team fought for me until the the very end and I am happy with how things turned out. Derek and Zack are very good at what they do and I would recommend them to anyone seeking an employment attorney.read more

My experience with the Derek Smith Law Group was highly positive, and I strongly recommend this law firm to handle any concern or case pertaining to employment and discrimination. All communications, with all levels of staff, was exceedingly professional and helpful. My attorney, Daniel Altaras, was tremendously helpful, honest, personable, professional, and most of all, caring. He truly cares about mitigating any discrepancies or violations of the law, and takes tremendous pride in his position and title. He was always available to take or return calls in short order regarding questions and concerns about my case. Additionally, he was highly productive, and treated the task at hand with high value, regardless of the monetary case value associated. He was on top of all variables associated with the case and it required very little worry or open ended questions, due to his constant follow up with any updates regarding the case.To reiterate, I vastly recommend consulting with the Derek Smith Law Group regarding any discrimination concern, I’m sure that your concern will be treated with the same level of value, care and professionalism as mine was.read more
