Review for Athanasios Makrinos

It happened to me what we all dread - getting laid off. When I got my severance package I contacted Athan Makrinos at Whitten & Lublin.
He went over it and told me that there is a good possibility that the package could be better and provided me with realistic expectations. I gave him the go ahead to do whatever he could. After communicating with my former employer by e-mail and phone, he got me a much better offer in just a matter of a few weeks. I was pleased with Athan's work. I was under stress but it was over and well pleased with the whole package and process. He is kind, clear in his explanation and promptly kept me updated while communicating with my former employer.
I will suggest, in fact recommend that you contact Athan of Whitten & Lublin.

Athan helped me through an extremely stressful time when I was "restructured" after 36 years at the same company and got me what I wanted: a fair settlement. I would recommend him to anyone.

We are thankful to have found Athan Makrinos to take on our case. There were several complex employment issues involved and Athan took the time to listen to our concerns and explain things in terms we could understand. He was extremely responsive and always addressed our questions transparently. Athan was the best lawyer we could have hired for our case and we appreciate the time and dedication he spent to get us a settlement. We would highly recommend him.

Athan was fantastic in dealing with a difficult employer as well as giving me confidence that I was in good hands and fully supported. He even went back after the deal was agreed to in principle and secured additional monies owed to we. Highly recommend and much thanks

I had the opportunity to work with Athanasis (Athan) Makrinos in September of 2020 with my severance package review and finalization as this was all very new to me. His knowledge, care, and truthful advice was excellent. He enabled me to understand and then finalize my settlement in a way that I was very confident, satisfied, and felt that I received a fair settlement. Highly recommend.

The beginning of my case I received excellent suggestions by Stephen Wolpert. One of which was using the Freedom of Information. I am grateful for that. Athanasios Makrinos then took over my case. Athanasios was very good at organizing and representing. What I also appreciate was that he knew that I had a particular issue and was always aware and considerate about this. Thanks Athanasios, if you read this. The support staff always answered questions and never had to wait too long for a response. I highly recommend Whitten & Lublin

I never would of imagined that I would need to get myself an employment lawyer. I did find the best with Whitten Lubin employment law. I needed expert advice and that is what I got. I cannot say enough great things about my recent experience with Daniel and Athanasios . They provided me clear communication , sound advice throughout this process and helped me stay calm while dealing with a tough situation. They were both very trustworthy , professional, efficient, empathic to my workplace matter . They had throughly knowledge of the labour law and were strategic and transparent. My whole experience was reassuring and positive. I now have peace of mind and closure .

After almost 1 year and more (first contact Athan - from Whitten & Lublin was on Dec 22, 2019 - refer from a friend), it is Finally OVER! No more nightmare, no more sleepless but only justice. I was thinking it can be solved within 3 month or max 6 month because it was a simple and easy case - Got laid off and did not get the appropriated amount of the severance pay which I am entitled to. (I was thinking the amount I got from the company is good and fair and I even appreciated what they had offered me - but the TRUTH is cruel - the amount is not even close to what it is suppose to - PLEASE, if you are reading this - ask for ADVISE if needed) I am glad that Athan is with me all the way for almost a year - 1 year! I never imagine this will take 1 year and more and you all can imagine how hard is this to me - anxiety, sleepless, it affects my normal life so much - But again, I knew I have to trust Athan and his teams and Thanks again for being there with me all the way - At some point, I even wondered if I will have the case and did i make the right decision to call Athan and later I even had this email phobia that i am so scared to see Athan's email in my inbox.... ((Athan proves to me that if you are right and we know in this case I am right, you have to stand for yourself and believe WE (he and his team and I) can do it together)) Yes, WE did it finally! This law suit is long and stressful and painful, especially you know you are right, but there is no other choice BUT to ask for help and advise - from the Professional. I cannot agree more it is a MUST to look for someone is sincere and with lots experience and is willing to help no matter if the case is big or small - I even told Athan that the amount is not my concern because I have no idea what is the right amount to ask for and whatever he thinks is the reasonable amount, I will agree because I believe that they had done many many similar cases before and they will put the client best interest FIRST - YES, they did! Lastly me and my family would like to thank Athan and his teams for all the hard work that they had done for me and I would 100% recommend Athan (from Whitten & Lublin/Employment Lawyers) and his team to all my friends if same issues came up!!!

Athan Makrinos is a champion for detail, and balanced fairness, an eagle eye for economic and cultural context of the liquid journey of employment law. Athan performs with an utter nature of goodness for all sides concerned. This is the professional you want working for you before the Supreme Court Of Canada steals him away from the us little folk.

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!!!
