What Our Clients Say
I was so very fortunate to have connected with Jim Pizl. We were introduced on the Avvo website. I posted an employment law question on Avvo’s website and Jim responded within 1 hour. He offered a detailed answer and asked a follow-up question, that is what started the relationship. I posted a question about employment law, specifically misclassification of workers – W2 vs. 1099 Independent Contractors. It was determined that I was misclassified. From there he and I partnered on the employment matter. He put so much time and effort in my case and went the extra mile. He is an excellent communicator! Jim responded to emails/calls almost instantly, he is prompt and detailed. During the entire case I felt I was Jim’s only client. He showed great care and attention throughout the process. His expertise of employment law educated me greatly and I always knew what was going on. I thank Jim and am grateful to have had him on my side. I can’t thank him enough for settling my case. Due to his knowledge in employment law we were successful in reaching a settlement.
I can tell James does it not just for the money, as most attorneys... he loves the job, and very open for some complex cases... Each time I contacted him, I could feel the energy that he has to make some impact in Law world, and mainly help people.
He is extremely efficient & professional. He is thorough & very good with communicating every step of the process, including having a quick response time to my inquiries. I could not be happier with Mr. Pizl, and highly recommend him.
