Our impact.

My husband and I cannot thank Stephen Wolpert and Athan Makrino's enough for their guidance and support during an incredible stressful time in our lives. Mr. Wolpert and Mr. Makrino's knowledge, advice and professionalism kept us in control of a situation we felt completely out of control in. They always listened to our concerns, answered all our questions and never made us feel like we were a bother. They took the time to understand our situation and worked hard to ensure the best possible results for us. We feel so incredibly fortunate to have been represented by Whitten & Lublin and highly recommend them to anyone facing difficult employment issues. Thanks again for all your hard work. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude.

I would like to thank Stephen Wolpert for his assistance in negotiating my severance package. Stephen provided great advice and support as I worked with my employer to execute an exit package. Stephen was great at providing prospective from both an employer and employee side to ensure that I received a fair package without incurring large legal fees. Stephen takes the time to listen to the issues and familiarize himself with the case before providing sound advise. He returned calls and emails promptly and made the process less stressful. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and the firm for your employment needs.

David Whitten and Stephen Wolpert are men of exceptional talent, professionalism, and expertise. They helped me and my family work our way through a very complex and difficult executive-level employment issue that involved many moving parts and a lot of emotion. David and Stephen were always prompt in their communications and they ensured that I understood the reality of the legal situation at each step of the process before moving forward. They helped me realize what options were available in my situation and guided me to the very best possible result for me and my family. They are worth every. single. penny- I cannot recommend them highly enough.
