I was let go from a 4 year senior manager role, right in the middle of the covid pandemic, I was recommended to deal with Athan. Athan was not only detailed and patient with me, when I thought I had no case and had decided to not pursue legal action agaisn't my former employeer, Athan called me up and informed me of a change in the law, he was so optimistic yet realistic about the new possibilities of winning. I decided to go forth with legal action agains't my employeer and we won---I can say that both Athan and I won...He is great!!!
After being wrongfully terminated from my job i was so upset and at a loss. Thankfully when i called the office I got a consultation with Athan.
