I was referred to Spencer Scott by a friend and gave them a call with regards to an issue regarding employment and non-compete laws. I was terminated in September by my employer. Although I felt the termination was unfounded, my main concern was my non-compete I had signed at the beginning of my employment. I knew I could find another position within my industry but my non-compete would prevent me for gaining employment for a period of time. I spoke with attorney Neal Bridges and together we went over the details of my employment, termination, and he reviewed my non-compete thoroughly.
Not only was Mr. Bridges able to get me released from my non compete early, he was also able to get me a severance package due to unlawful termination issues as I am a female and over 50! I was very pleased to not only be able to get back to work in a timely manner but also be compensated for the time and stress out in me by my unforeseen termination.
Mr. Bridges carefully explained to me the process and kept me updated as to the status of my case and was able to resolve this without a trial and a long drawn out mediation, trial, etc.
I would recommend Spencer Scott law firm and specifically Neal Bridges.
I was looking for a lawyer to take my case against my former employer when I found Neal Bridges at Spencer Scott. Neal walked me through everything and was always there to answer any questions I had in a timely manner. He went above and beyond to guide me through my case every step of the way. Neal got me a fair settlement in a timely manner. I would recommend Neal he is a great attorney to work with.
