"I had a work related issue that required a phenomenal attorney, and that was Alan, Lescht , his firm worked with me to resolve my work issue. nnRani who was a Shareholder in the firm, worked on my case and did a great job of keeping me in the loop of what was happening with my case, she kept me up to date on all hearings, issues and all information I needed to make an informed decision at every turn in my case. Joyce who is the office manager, was very helpful in answering many questions that I had when I called the firm.nn It was great working with this team this is a law firm that knows how to get results in a timely manner. One of the many things I liked about working with this firm is that their response time was the best they responded late at night, weekends, early mornings, it didn't matter they kept me in the loop of what was happening in my case. All I can say is thanks for a job well done."

"I hired Alan Lescht & Associates almost 2 years ago to help me find justice when I was terminated after disclosing my pregnancy. My case was dragged out for longer than any of expected but not once did this firm back down. They helped me until the very end, always keeping me posted with updates and the status of my case. After a long battle and a lot of going back and forth I was very happy with the results. I'd recommend them to anyone."

"When I reached out to Mr. Alan Lescht for advise, I was confused, uncertain, and pessimistic about my situation. I was in my job for long years and to my surprise I was unlawfully terminated. Mr. Lescht reinstalled my confidence with a few wise words and advised me to go and get another job and worry about this later! He was right, when I came back to his office a few months later I was extremely impressed with the level of service, zeal, and accuracy his office exhibited through out the process. My case was not an easy case and the opponents played tough but Mr. Lescht associates were caring, firm, honest, and comforted me throughout the process. If you are looking for a strong representation to work with you I strongly recommend Mr. Lescht's office."
