Lisa gave me back my self respect in her tenacious handling of my employment situation. Initially she listened, gave advice and was responsive to emails at all times of the day and on weekends as we sorted through the situation. When the time came for her to get involved, I was blown away by her confidence and negotiating skill. I was VERY pleased with the results and highly recommend Lisa.
I was faced with what I perceived was an unfair business practice, and resigned. After the dust settled, the reality of my decision became clear and I was worried. I constantly worried about if I made the right decision or not.I spoke with a trusted colleague who was concerned that I might be leaving options on the table and encouraged me to speak with an attorney. I reached out to 2 locally, 2 north of where I live, and 2 by referral. Either I never heard back from the attorneys, or they had a conflict of interest. However, the 7th one, Ms. Bertini was the charm! I had resolved to give up, but instead gave her office a call. The receptionist was on top of things! She heard my dilemma, was empathetic and patient and quickly jumped to get me an appointment the VERY same day. She also assisted me with being succinct in my description of my dilemma (what a time and money saver). Within an hour, Ms. Bertini reviewed my materials and asked questions, and followed up with me in a very short amount of time. I would’ve remained in doubt about if I made the right decision and left anything behind, she gave me the clarity and closure I needed to move forward in my next venture. I’ve bookmarked Ms. Bertini and her team. It’s great to know I have a group of amazing professionals that are responsive, knowledgeable and at the ready when needed. I am so appreciative and feel FREE to do the next thing. Thank you Ms. Bertini and team!
From the very beginning Lisa was compassionate when listening to the unfair treatment I received from my employer. I came in tearful and in distress and by the end I felt listened to and like I had an ally in the fight. She was there with me every step of the way and by the end I was very happy. If you are looking for an employment attorney don’t hesitate. Lisa is worth it and more!
Lisa came recommended from another employee's rights attorney. Right off the bat, Lisa was forthcoming, honest, and realistic. This is great because you are able to gauge how successful your case will be based on precedent and laws. She was a true advocate and champion for my case as we navigated the Federal EEOC process. I filed a discrimination case and she advised me how to structure my Charges based on race, national origin, sex, and sexual orientation. She made calls and hosted meetings on my behalf with other attorneys and Mediator. Even with a fighting spirit, Lisa is tactful, empathetic and caring. Her staff is courteous and overall her firm is responsive. Excellent customer service! It is rare to find honesty in this world, and after facing hardship at work, I was extremely happy to have her on my side. Not only that, she is also well known and respected.
Ms. Bertini was professional and efficient in all discussions and negotiations. She discussed all options and listened to what was the most important to me and negotiated a successful agreement in a very short period of time. She was readily available for discussion and answered all questions in a very timely manner.
My consultation with Ms Bertini left me feeling empowered, respected and cared for after being terminated from my job. She was knowledgeable, provided me with references and clearly explained what my next steps should be and what to expect. Ms. Bertini and staff thoroughly reviewed my information in a very short time period and I felt they were well prepared for my concerns during the consult. I was spoken to with respect and kindness by Ms. Bertini and all staff and that boosted my confidence during this traumatic time.
Standing up to my employer was the hardest decision that I have ever made. Hiring Lisa Bertini to represent me was hands down the BEST decision that I have ever made. To say that Lisa is phenomenal would be an understatement; she really is a BOSS when it comes to defending her clients. She has the knowledge, the experience, and the credibility to get things done but she was also excellent at involving me and my input before executing any strategy. Her responsiveness was impeccable and she was always one step ahead of everyone else. She had my best interests at heart from the very beginning but she also made sure to never sugar coat things; she kept it real and always set expectations so that I could be as prepared as possible for whatever scenario came our way.My employer certainly tried their hardest to make things absolutely miserable for me - they were hostile and they were arrogant - but Lisa never once waivered. In the end, the outcome exceeded expectations and while we were celebrating our victory, they were going home with their tails between their legs. So, if I had to do it all again, would I? Absolutely, but ONLY with Lisa and her amazing team standing alongside me. I can promise you that you will not regret hiring her to represent you, but you will probably regret it if you don’t hire her. Lisa is, without a doubt, the person you want beside you, not against you, and if you are looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, look no further – Lisa will find it!
I found Lisa Bertini and her staff to be professional and welcoming. I had many questions and Ms. Bertini was very patient with me. We had an added challenge as we were under Covid-19 restrictions! Ms. Bertini and her staff were quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. I was treated fairly and with kind consideration. I recommend her highly.
Two Hampton Roads corporate attorney friends of mine highly recommended Lisa. I was immediately impressed with her ability to listen...empathetic to the obvious & intelligent on the big picture. She challenged me to ensure I knew what I was going up against and educated me on the entire process. Every time there was a response or concern from my past employer's counsel, she immediately notified me. I was involved every step of the way and provided detailed documentation of the matter, so that she had the ammunition required to stand up for what is right. Her staff was attentive, efficient, thorough, and paid attention to every tiny detail, to ensure each moment of negotiation was presented with perfection. The entire process took 11 weeks and would have been quicker, however there were delays on the other party's behalf. Lisa held my past employer accountable for their responsibilities regarding MY rights as their employee. My past employer's General Counsel told me if for some reason he would ever be looking for a job, he would immediately connect with Lisa. He went on further to apologize for the situation at hand and told me he was glad I had hired Lisa from the day she contacted him, as he knew she was a straight-shooter, would be complimentary to work through this predicament, and would ensure I would be treated fairly. In conclusion, I was respected by Lisa, validated by my ex-employer, amicably received every negotiation I requested and needed, and now have Lisa as a trusted, professional friend.
Lisa brought extensive experience to the issue we were facing and efficiently designed a plan to collect the facts. We were able to proceed with confidence and the outcome was fairly based upon facts vs testimony.
Originally I had a consultation and ended up needing to use Lisa's services. She was wonderful to work with and genuinely seemed concerned about my situation. I didn't feel like I was there as "just another client". She explained things so they made sense and was timely on all responses. I'd gladly recommend her to anyone!
Ms. Lisa Ann Bertini was recommended to me by a friend for her outstanding work in employment and labor. She reviewed a separation agreement from my former employer. During our consultation Lisa listened, asked questions and was very compassionate about my situation. Based on her advice I sent a response to HR - However they did not respond. I contacted Lisa again and her followup to my former employer not only prompted a response but a favorable resolution. Lisa is truly a "Rock Star" in my book. I would highly recommend her to anyone that finds themselves in such a situation as mine.
I needed Ms. Bertini to review an employment contract to ensure I was protected. Ms. Bertini met with me and carefully went through the entire contract, noting areas of concern and suggesting alternative language. She also explained the law behind the contract to help me understand my rights. She was candid about what the law did and did not allow for, which I very much appreciated.The entire experience was professional and personal. She answered all of my questions systematically and took the time to explain the law in a non-technical way that I could understand. Ms. Bertini's command of the law put me at ease over my situation. It was clear to me that her goal was to help me first and foremost, not to acquire a fee for her services. I would highly recommend her.
Lisa, was an absolute pleasure to work with along with her staff. She is a fantastic lawyer who keeps things on track and kept me on track to finish the process of a labor dispute. She was honest about the possibilities or avenues of pursuit for the case and ended up with very fair settlement. I would highly recommend her for any employment or contract issues you may have
Lisa Bertini is a very thorough and thoughtful Lawyer. She took the time to examine all of my documents. She then was great at walking me thru each and everyone of them, so that I would understood and that I really appreciated. I would recommend her to anyone that is concerned or challenged in their employment, separation or just making sure everything is legal and just right.
I hired Ms. Bertini to review and advise me on a Separation agreement contract. I was extremely impressed with her timely response and recommendations. It was clear she was very knowledgeable in "Employment Law". She consistently followed up and followed through with the company I was negotiating with and offered great advice on the steps I should take. At the conclusion of her services, I was pleased with the final separation agreement and felt that she did an outstanding job advocating for me. She is outstanding!!
Executive level employment situation. New Board of Directors coupled with personnel issues. Ms. Bertini's advice and counsel enabled me to see what was possible, what was probable and what was not possible. We were able to make informed decisions together. The outcome was better, much better than expected. Her reputation and that of her firm resulted (in my opinion) to a respectful handling of a difficult matter with a resolution acceptable to all concerned. I hold Ms. Bertini and her colleagues in the highest regard. They additionally provided emotional reassurance during a very difficult transition and although they are not therapists, they could certainly have skills in that area.
I retained Lisa to negotiate a complex termination agreement with my former employer -- a large and well financed organization that was being represented by in-house counsel and one of the Top 10 employment law firms in the United States. In just three months, Lisa successfully secured me a multiple six figure settlement agreement that was 3-4 times larger than my former employer's original offer. I was very proud to have her on my side throughout the process.My circumstances were somewhat unique because I live over 100+ miles from Virginia Beach (where Bertini law is based). Despite never meeting Lisa face-to-face, I found her to be an incredibly competent, warm, and direct communicator in all of my telephone and email correspondence on my case. She gave me the individualized attention one would expect from a smaller practice and steered me with the type of legal expertise/advice one would expect from a much larger firm. In my opinion, the quality of your counsel's reputation probably determines more about the ultimate outcome of your case than any other factor. Lisa has a reputation for success ... and her clients benefit immediately when her opponents learn that she has taken your case. This was confirmed to me by a partner at one of Virginia's largest legal firms...she is a known quantity and professionally respected in Virginia's most prestigious legal circles.As a result, Lisa has earned the enviable position where she can be selective about the cases she takes on -- so that she can spend her time where both she and her client's success is highly probable. I will also say that while Lisa was always available when I needed her (I don't know how she finds the time), she handled my case very efficiently (i.e. didn't bill me for unnecessary hours). Lisa is results oriented and guided me with integrity so that I got the best ROI from her legal services. Her services were a considerable value to me.I strongly recommend Lisa to anyone considering the services of an employment attorney in the state of Virginia. I am thankful she took my case and hope others will benefit from this recommendation.
Lisa is a consummate professional. I brought an issue to her and she accurately assessed the situation and set out a course of action that fully met my expectations. As a result of her exceptional understanding of the law, and her status, my issue was swiftly resolved to my complete satisfaction. Do not hesitate to contact Lisa. She receives my strongest recommendation.
terez middleton, Lisa and Andrea are excellent lawyers. They are smart and educated therefore perhaps due to circumstantial situations and or evidence perhaps was not sufficient . I despise anyone who bashes Lisa. They change the world. How about you " BE the change you wish to see in the world such as LISA BERTINI" instead of bad mouthing A creditable lawyers. They have NO IDEA I am writing this; I suggest you jump off a bridge if you are to bad mouth good people whom make a difference in the world. MURPHY
Ms. Bertini was very accommodating and available when I needed time sensitive information regarding my contract and departure from my previous employer. She was efficient, kind and supportive. She also was available conveniently by phone or email. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case.
I encountered a professional contract dispute with a former employer who was refusing to respond to calls, email or certified letter. After internet reviews and referrals from 2 other attorneys who have handled other matters for my family, I consulted and hired Lisa Bertini. She felt I had a valid issue and she expected quick resolution. Within 3 weeks, we had a settlement agreement even with Ms Bertini having a scheduled vacation. Her partner, Darius Rohani-Shukla, who assisted with my unemployment hearing and paralegal Selena Misco, were also most helpful. I highly recommend this practice .
Lisa and her staff were a pleasure to work with from initial contact through resolution. I was referred by another attorney and was impressed by her awards and recognitions. When I met with her, I was even more impressed because of her humanity. It was clear Lisa knows employment law from every angle and I was thrilled to find a professional who quickly understood my situation. Legal issues can be disheartening, but she restored my faith and confidence in myself.She quickly went to work on my behalf and was immediately responsive to questions and she persisted to reach a solution that was agreeable. After living a miserable situation for many months, her actions made it possible for me to put it behind me and move on. I recommend Lisa most highly and I am grateful to have met her.
I recently hired Lisa Bertini and I was very impressed with her and her staff. The consultation was refreshing; she made me feel comfortable. More importantly, I felt like she was on my side. Lisa’s direct communication style made it easy for me to grasp the direction that she provided. I fully understood the next steps and my role in the process.Lisa was approachable and down to earth. Her accessibility was also impressive; she responded to emails immediately! Lisa is a confident woman who knows her craft. My experience matched all of the things that I researched and read online. My experience with Lisa Bertini was enjoyable and I would recommend her to others.
When individuals or families seek legal counsel or representation, so often life has presented them with a whirlwind of issues they weren’t planning or prepared to face. In those times it’s important to find someone that will make you a priority while doing all they can to make life a little less stressful. When I needed her most, Lisa was there. Lisa went the extra mile to make sure my legal needs were of the highest priority. She was super responsive and constantly looking out for my best interest. Lisa provided peace for family in the midst of a storm. I wouldn't hesitate to rehire or recommend her to anyone facing an employment issue. She’s the best and I’m thankful she was there when I needed her most.
Best experience with an attorney I could ever wish for. Lisa was professional, no nonsense and I knew she wanted the best for me. She was respectful of my wishes and made me feel comfortable with all the choices I made. I would ( and have) recommend her to anyone needing her specific services, she is fantastic!
I hired Ms. Bertini to represent me in a grievance I filed against my employer. She reviewed all the documentation I provided and carefully interviewed me to understand what my objectives were. Ms. Bertini recommended a best course of action and explained to me why it was so based on her experience and knowledge of Virginia and Federal employment laws as well as case studies. She provided me clear explanations and leveled my expectations. Her interactions with my employer and their legal team were always highly professional and to the point. She definitely got things moving in my situation when my employer seemed to be stonewalling. I was always informed of every action she took as well as all communications with my employer. Ms. Bertini is very personable, polite, caring and understanding. She is very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable in her field of law and a 'tiger' of an advocate for her clients! I found her rates to be competitive and reasonable. I highly recommend her services to anyone who has employment issues to deal with. If ever I find myself in a similar situation again, I will most certainly retain her services!
My name is Derek, I have been discriminated against my sexuality at work for many years even at the shipyard but I never done anything about it I just stayed quiet now I work for Medicaid transportation and it's discrimination everywhere against my sexuality, when I call them on what they're doing they'll make me look like the bad guy even if I come to work faithfully, I just made a call to her and left my number I'm hoping that they'll return my call because enough is enough please call me 30 years is to much
Initially consulted with Ms. Bertini and based on her assessment of the severance agreement as well as my professional history felt there was more her firm could do to support me. With that in mind I hired Ms. Bertini. Ms. Bertini was very firm but professional and incredibly diligent at following up, collaborating negotiating with my employer and I. The results were more that I thought was going to be possible and for that I am very grateful and would recommend Ms. Bertini and her form for anyone that needs help.
I went in and sat down with Ms. Lisa and she explained everything in detail. She explained the different options, and the best option for me. She didnt sugar coat or try to weasel a bunch of money out of me. She cares about the person she is working with and it shows! I would highly recommend her if you want honest answers!
She was down to earth, and very Knowledgeable. However, a simple review of the intake paperwork And a phone call stating, “unless it is racial or discriminatory, you have No Case”, would have been a better Customer Service Experience. Your already down , and then to have to pay $330 fee for her Consultation was a kicker. Charge for the cases your Hired for because You know you will make your money and your Client will to.
I never had the need to hire a lawyer, so on a friends recommended I went in for a consultation with Ms. Bertini on a work place dispute. Ms. Bertini and her staff made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. Ms. Bertini was very straight forward, she listened to what my problems were, asked me questions to further understand my situation then she asked me what I wanted to accomplish out of this situation. Once we finished that portion she explained my options and how things would work. I was impressed with her knowledge and how she appeared to identify with me and my situation. I felt like I had a friend who was there to help me and there was never a hesitation to hire her to take my case. Once the proceedings began, there was no doubt I was in great hands. She interjected when needed and empowered me to be confident while making my points, but kept me on point, giving me a subtle indication when my point was made. I know all situations are different, but Ms. Bertini was the smartest person in the room and she was not going to accept any resolution that wasn’t in my best interest. I hope I never have the need to hire a lawyer again, but if I do Ms. Bertini will be the first I call, and will recommend her to anyone who needs help.
I needed professional, and educated information about an ongoing situation at my place of employment. Sitting with Lisa was like sitting at your dining room table with your favorite cousin. Who just happens to be a Fantastic Employment Lawyer; giving you the best advice on how to legally handle a bully with false accusations at work. I left her office empowered and confident with her advice. Note: this is the first review in my 50 plus years, good or bad. I have ever written. Truly Tracey
I met with Lisa and hired her that first day. It was a difficult case against a very difficult publicity traded company with deep pockets. And fought hard to get me what I needed. She was up against a very difficult wall At the end I was pleased with what she did.Definitely I would recommend her and her firm.
I thank you and your firm! For the way that you handled my case and treated me with dignity and respect, I would recommend this firm in a heartbeat, once again thank you all, God bless! Stephen C Wanton.
Lisa Bertini and her colleague Darius Rohani-Shukla were nothing short of phenomenal. Discrimination and harassment is very difficult to prove. Even if you have things in writing like I did, what is actionable under Virginia law seems biased in the favor of the employer but that is just my opinion. Before I retained the Bertini Firm, I did a lot of research and I read a lot of reviews. Almost all of Ms. Bertini's reviews were positive but there were a couple of negative ones to which Ms. Bertini herself promptly responded to each one, which really impressed me. The initial consultation fee was $350, and IT WAS THE BEST $350 I EVER SPENT. Ms. Bertini is very busy and in demand, and she is not pressed about your $350 believe me, so if you are looking for a free consultation this is not the place for you. I believe you get what you pay for. I was feeling defeated and anxious when I walked into that initial meeting. I hadn't been sleeping and the stress of my horrible work situation was taking a serious toll on me. We were not 100% sure that I had an actionable case but Ms. Bertini was appalled by what happened to me and agreed to take it anyway knowing it would be an uphill battle. When I left that initial meeting, I felt as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, and that I had someone who would fight for me. For the first time in three months, I had a restful night's sleep after leaving her office. To make a long story short, my employer lied and my case was not actionable under the law; we learned this about a month into the process. Instead of just throwing in the towel, Ms. Bertini and Mr. Rohani-Shukla fought for me like I was a million dollar client, and they got me a settlement. I am 100% sure that without Lisa Bertini and her associate, I would have ended up with nothing. The process took several months, and I don't care how many questions I had Lisa and Darius never took more than a couple of hours to respond to me. They were always honest and Lisa is very frank at all times, which I appreciate but some people may think it is abrasive. I will say, Lisa is not going to coddle you 24-7, I do not believe she is the "coddle" type when it comes to work, again just my opinion. She has an amazing, attentive staff if you need that. She is focused, results oriented and a straight up Beast who you want on your team if she agrees to take your case. She is tough but please do not perceived her frankness as uncaring; Lisa goes hard for clients and she is protective and caring. I know for a fact that it cost the Bertini firm more to fight my case then what I received so they did not make any money off of me but it never stopped how hard they worked for me. I recommend Lisa Bertini, Darius and the Bertini Firm because they are the best at what they do, they are hardworking no matter what and because they care about their clients. The paralegals, the office manager and the receptionist at the Bertini firm are all exceptional, truly a cut above the rest and I will be eternally grateful. If you are looking for an experienced attorney who is the best at what they do and who will always look out for your best interest, it gets no better that Lisa Bertini....."The meat cutter's daughter".
Hired Lisa Bertini for a Employment matter. Lisa and her team communicated with me every step of the way. Lisa heard my concerns and they were addressed and came up with a game plan to ensure a successful litigation. I'm extremely happy that I had hired her. I feel that her team went above and beyond and Iwould 100% recommend her.
Lisa Ann Bertini is an incredibly talented, intelligent, and compassionate counselor for her clients. She quickly assessed and processed the information I presented and came up with a game plan moving forward that best served my objectives with my former employer. She understood my perspective and did not pass judgment on any information presented. She clearly and concisely pursued our goals in communiques with my former employer and got us the outcome we had hoped for. I would highly recommend Lisa Ann Bertini moving forward to all family, friends and acquaintances. She is a phenomenal attorney.
Lisa was hired at the very last minute and jumped to the rescue. Best decision I ever made. Helped resolve my issue in a very timely manner. She went over and above the call of duty to get things done with little or no time to do them. Her efforts and results were very much appreciated ! Staff was outstanding too. Extremely professional and helpful in all manners.
In my 45 years hiring and utilizing lawyers for business and personal needs, Lisa is by far the best lawyer I have ever encountered, "bar" none. I would hired Lisa again under any circumstances whether it was in her field of expertise on not.
If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Lisa by far is the best decision I made when it came to hiring an attorney for my case. She was so responsive & really cared about me & my case. She was always upfront about all the legal costs, would prepare me for any bad news that was coming & she worked her butt off too. If you are EVER involved in non-compete battle with a former company then call Lisa!!
Lisa represented a non-compete case for my family and I. She and her staff are extremely attentive & passionate for their clients. What I love the most about Lisa is that she will give you feedback and set realistic expectations. Over the course of the past few months, I felt that I was able to develop a great relationship with the staff, and they were always able to put me at ease. The litigation process is hard to endure, especially when you have not been through it before. Lisa worked extremely hard to anticipate & prepare me for what was to come... I should also mention that she is charming too!
Ms. Bertini and her office were extremely helpful and accommodating for a timely request to review a non-compete, non-solicitation agreement. The friendly and professional front office and paralegal staff worked promptly with me to get a same day consultation scheduled with Ms. Bertini. Once on the call with Ms. Bertini, she really took the time to understand the context surrounding my circumstances and walked through my document in its entirety with me, citing historical cases and providing additional comments to help me better understand. She answered all questions I had and provided examples to help clarify. Ms. Bertini is a straight shooter, though incredibly easy to talk to, friendly, and made reviewing a legal document as enjoyable as possible. If you're looking for some to help you truly understand employment law in the context of your situation and arm you with knowledge, I highly recommend her services. I was very impressed with her, as well as her staff, so much so that I continue to use her consulting services on an as needed basis.
I needed three things when I saw Ms. Bertini for a consultation; clarity, guidance and peace of mind. I not only received all three of those very quickly, I met with an amazing woman that is a willing and eager listener. She helped push my confidence back into high gear. Her expert knowledge shines through the easy straightforwardness and I followed her excellent advice immediately. From the time of my initial phone call, Ms. Bertini's team showed impeccable efficiency, understanding and courtesy. They are truly top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend her and will unequivocally contact her in the future should the need arise.
Lisa and team were brilliant, diligent, and sensitive regarding the urgency of my employment matter. I was pleasantly surprised at how responsive they were to ALL of my inquiries, and the pleasant nature of our interactions. I would not hesitate to consult them again should I find myself in similar unfortunate circumstances. I highly recommend Lisa and her remarkable team!
I met with Lisa feeling very overwhelmed about an extremely bad work environment. As I was explaining my situation to her I felt completely relieved. She reassured me that it was all going to be okay and that I did not ask to be put in this situation. Although due to not reporting the incident sooner, we could not take legal action. Shortly after my consultation with Lisa she sent me an email giving me strong advice on how to proceed with the matter. After pondering over the advice for a few days, I decided to take action. Thank you Lisa for giving me the advice and strength to resolve this situation once and for all! I highly recommend Lisa Bertini and her Law Firm.
What makes Ms. Bertini stand out to me, as an attorney, is that not only does she have a clear understanding of the complex subject of employment law, but she is also honest and direct! She listened to my story, with the empathetic ear of a social worker/therapist, and then gave me clear-cut and sound advice, that only someone with her background and understanding of employment law could do! I would highly recommend her.
Lisa and her team were responsive, professional, compassionate and lead with integrity. They were also confident, dependable and provided my family and I with the piece of mind during our case which was a scary and trying time for us. They gave us the courage to do what was right and provided the support and validation of good ethics. We are very grateful for all the hard work on our case and wish Lisa and her team much success. If you need an employment firm, this is the one to hire!
Lisa was able to help me negotiate a severance agreement after being laid off 7 months pregnant. I would not have gotten the amount I was awarded if not for her help. She was great and always available for any questions I had. Would highly recommend retaining her services!
Thank you for the expert consultation, Ms. Bertini. Although the news wasn't what we had hoped for, we respect and appreciate your expert judgement. But most importantly, we felt heard... and believed. That alone was worth the cost of a consult. I'd give six stars if that was an option.
Mrs. Bertini was beyond amazing both as a person and a lawyer. She listened to me, understood what I was saying, believed me, and helped me through it all. She worked hard and was tough in getting me what was right for my case. I am so glad that I consulted her and let her help me. I would recommend Mrs. Bertini to anyone with an employment law case, especially for sexual assault/harassment. She cares.And she will work hard to help you.
Lisa helped me with an incredibly difficult separation from my employer. She was efficient and expeditious. She negotiated an acceptable severance package with a large organization in less than 10 days. Lisa is responsive and the absolute best in her field. I have already referred other clients to her firm.
I was referred to Ms. Bertini as she specializes in employment contract evaluation. She was very efficient in reviewing my questions and providing the solid feedback and guidance I sought. She clearly advocated for me! I would heartily recommend her.
I am so happy I chose Lisa to help me with my employment problem. Lisa is a top notch, well respected attorney that not only cares for her clients, but also has a thorough understanding of employment law. I hired her for a sensitive and complicated employment claim. Her thoughtful advice and expert knowledge were paramount in its successful resolution. Furthermore, she was always mindful of the realities of my individual situation and worked with me to accomplish my ancillary goals. I recommend her without reservation.
Lisa advised us on a very complicated employment matter, and the results were all that we had hoped for. We couldn't have successfully negotiated our way through this matter without Lisa's advice. We would recommend her to anyone seeking consultation for an employment related case. She's great to work with and very personable.
Attorney Lisa is a strong and awesome attorney, first of all you are welcomed into her office by her staff with courtesy that makes you feel at ease then you meet this tall ,strong and accomplished attorney who knows what she is doing and she listens and does the appropriate thing, In my case it was my employer threatening to litigate me for trying to get working in a totally noncompete place and one strong email with the facts listed got me the waiver. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs this kind of help just Like the way she was recommended to me!!
After I spoke to my former office manager at the law firm I had worked for 24 years I was told the bookkeeper was told not to pay me my July bonus I contacted Ms Bertini and was given the first appointment of the day- today 9am -not only was I reassured by her calm,considerate manner I was told that she could handle with a phone call. By 3pm I received her e-mail- checks in the mail! I will remember her for all my legal needs.
Ms.Bertini and her legal staff were very supportive throughout my settlement . They persistently informed me on the status of my claim by phone and email. If I had any questions they were answered promptly that day. Ms. Bertini kept it straight forward and honest on all aspects of my claim, and was on top of the other side making things happen in a timely manner. Thank you Bertini law firm for doing your job in a professional and aggressive manner , with a successfull outcome of justice. One of the most efficient lawyers I've gladly conducted serious matters with.
The legal team here is an amazing group of hardworking individuals. Lisa and Andrea, as well as all her staff devoted a substantial amount of time and effort in our case.They went above and beyond to present the most concise and accurate legal brief to support our case. I would highly recommend Bertini Law group to anyone needing there legal expertise.
Lisa was an immense help. With her guidance, a profitable severance agreement was quickly won, the complexities of church law explained, and an equitable solution mediated. Highly professional , personable, and kind.
Working with Mrs. Bertini on my case was such a positive experience. She was always accessible, compassionate, and was able to help me work through a very difficult situation. If you are in need of legal support, I would highly recommend her.
After being presented with a non-compete from my employer at the last minute, I found myself feeling disheartened and concerned about my future career goals. Though I consulted with numerous professionals about the situation I still was not satisfied with the advice given. That's when I called my grandmother who called her longtime college friend; which led me to Ms. Lisa Bertini. I knew that I would feel more at ease with the situation when my grandmother told me that her girl friend stated the following, "Ms. Lisa Bertini, will be fierce." That's when I decided I would consult with Ms. Bertini about the situation. I am happy to report that everything has ended peacefully with my past employer. Thanks, Ms. Bertini for the help. -JayFizz
Ms. Bertini has helped me with most of my major career decisions over the years. She has helped with making sure my employment contracts are fair and she has helped with issues that have come up at various companies. She is always available and ready to help. She is highly recommended.
I worked with Ms. Bertini regarding an employment law matter. Not only was she kind and supportive while listening to my experience, but she was extremely knowledgeable about the legal aspects of it. After getting the details, she drafted a demand letter to my employer, and within a week we agreed to mediation. I felt extremely well prepared going in to the mediation session, and strongly supported by Ms. Bertini. Her knowledge and her manner helped keep me focused during the long day. With Ms. Bertini's help, I was able to come to an equitable agreement with my employer. I am happy to have this experience behind me, and extremely grateful to have had Ms. Bertini help me through it.
I am pleased to say that my legal questions and requirements were met in a timely manner by Lisa and her team. Lisa was straight-forward with me and very diligent in her approach to my case, despite various obstacles. Her demeanor, which combines a sincere level of concern coupled with her professional skills and solid understanding of the law, is a great blend for any client. I would be happy to refer Lisa to any and all of my friends or colleagues who may find themselves in need of legal assistance and expertise.
Utilized Lisa for a complicated litigation issue. She tirelessly and enthusiastically represented our cause and was able to negotiate a settlement to which all parties were satisfied. Would definitely recommend her and her team of professionals.
Lisa Bertini met with me and provided me with guidance, while showing a compassionate understanding. She was professional and supportive, during a very difficult time in my life both with a medical condition and a hostile supervisor violating an ADA accommodation. I was made aware of my legal rights and steps to take, that prevented further reprisal. She was reasonably available, when situations or questions arose. She believed in me, showing me, that I could believe in myself. Through her guidance, I was able to make clear and beneficial decisions; ultimately, my quality of life is much better. Her and her staff were always respectful and courteous. I highly recommend Lisa Bertini and her law firm.
We hired Ms. Bertini to advise our company concerning several points of employee law, revise our employee handbook, and to review our employment procedures. She is professional, knowledgeable, approachable, and provided us with excellent service! As the administrator, I am grateful to have access to her expertise and support.
Lisa was engaged from the moment we entered her office. She took notes and let us lay out our concerns without being a typically cold attorney. Lisa was remarkably available for all our comments and questions usually replying within minutes. I have used attorneys in many capacities throughout the years and would have to put Lisa at the top of my list! Thank you Lisa for your compassion and showing me that attorneys can have a "heart"!
Lisa listened to my issues and concerns, worked through each and advised me appropriately. She is tough and she gets the job done quickly. Lisa always responded quickly to my emails and phone calls. I highly recommend her.
After being threatened by my previous employer with an NDA I had in place, and also having them harass my current employer without cause, I knew it was time to seek counsel. Mrs. Bertini set my mind at ease. After a quick consultation and forwarding the NDA to her, she was able to find the holes in the NDA and assured me that I had nothing to fear as far as litigation coming my way from the previous employer. Though, if it had/does go to litigation, now I know who I want on my side.
She is straightforward. Listens and cares about her clients. She advised me on how to handle my situation quickly and effectively. She restored my confidence in myself. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Everyone is the office is kind and responds professionally and in a timely manner.
Ms. Bertini provided excellent counsel regarding the options, challenges and complications associated with pursuing a disability discrimination claim. She was focused and diligent in her efforts to convince the employer that their perspective was incorrect and not in compliance with the ADA.
I consulted with Ms. Bertini regarding my employers mishandling of my benefits. I was able to get a same day appointment, which was important to me because I was dealing with time sensitive issues. I felt like I was her only client, as she responded to my emails within minutes. It was as if I was in her office talking with her every step of the way. Of course, once my employers knew I consulted with a super lawyer my issues were immediately fixed. This just shows how persuasive she can be. She's very responsive, effective, and you can tell she is passionate about her career.
I could not have asked for a better lawyer. She was encouraging to me, and gave me the confidence I needed to handle the important meetings/negotiations. Further, she was very strong in the case against the opposition, and handled moments of tension with excellence and energy. She has a great heart and wants to see you succeed, and she has the knowledge and wisdom to do it.
One of the first firms I contacted in July told me if I was still having an issue in October to contact them. I contacted Ms. Bertini's firm on a Wednesday and they setup an appointment for me on the following Monday. I emailed Ms. Bertini an outline of what was going on in my case during the weekend and she replied and said it was important for me to come meet with her. SHE REPLIED OVER THE WEEKEND! Ms. Bertini gave me hope and helped me through one of the worst experiences of my life. I am very grateful to her firm.
Lisa and her team are outstanding! Lisa is easily accessible, responds quickly to emails or calls and truly cares for her clients. Her extensive knowledge of employment and discrimination law as well as her unwavering commitment to her clients best interests are the reasons she achieved the results I wanted. I highly recommend Lisa!
After much research on labor law and lawyers, we decided to go local and use Lisa. I knew immediately that I wanted her on my side. She is very direct and takes the time to explain her professional advice and together you plan the best course of action. Most importantly, she responds quickly to questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone seeking legal services.
Ms. Bertini is truly amazing. She is informed and intelligent, compassionate, and yet straightforward. She earned my trust instantly, heard me out, told me when I was being ridiculous, and validated my concerns where they were legitimate. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone in need of employment-related counsel.
Lisa did a wonderful job helping me through a difficult situation. All of Lisa's recommendations were based on what was in my best interest and not how she could bill me for unnecessary services. When it comes to defending her clients Lisa is very strong and is not the least bit hesitant to push back when necessary. If you need someone to defend your rights as an employee I HIGHLY recommend Lisa Bertini.
Lisa Bertini knows how to get results! She was excellent handling my EEOC Age discrimination charge against my employer the 10th largest Bank in the US. My employer delayed their responses so Lisa Bertini was efficient and that made my legal cost very reasonable. Lisa is persistent and has great advice so I got the promotion and the best results . I would use Lisa Bertini again and I highly recommend her.
Lisa reviewed and offered her suggestions of the initial agreement. At first she advised me against signing since it was not a severance agreement at all, but an agreement to work another month with pay and give up my legal rights I may have against my employer. After consulting with her over several days, she proposed several new paragraphs in the agreement whereby I was to be paid a severance after my last day of employment and a bonus due from the previous year. My employer agreed to both. I would encourage any employee with a severance agreement to have it reviewed by Lisa before signing.
I was referred to her by a trusted colleague and without hesitation would use this firm again if needed. She is very competent, highly professional, responsive, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. She kept me in the loop and explained my options every step of the way. Her knowledge of the law and dedication to me as a client, delivered prompt results I needed. You will be extremely satisfied if she represents you...#teambertinidelivers
In 30 years of retail ,I never had to hire an attorney.I was very reluctant to do so due to cost etc.I met with Lisa Bertini and presented my case.I told her my employer never settles no matter what. Her and her team,put an exit strategy together for me .I was correct my employer at first said no deal ,we wish you the best.Lisa then began negotiating with my employer's attorney.She kept me posted daily .She was able to get me a very nice settlement and resolve all of this within 15 days. If you want someone to FIGHT for you ,her and her team are the ones to hire.
I was very impressed with Lisa Bertini and her staff. They consistently kept me informed of the status of our suit and explained the process in layman's terms. Although we were unsuccessful due to the complexity and unusual aspects of my case, I would recommend Lisa to anyone who would benefit from her services.
I hired Ms Bertini to help me with a work matter. She was very professional, acquired all information pertaining to my case. She kept me informed with e-mails almost daily. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to move forward. She told me it was time to stop. She didn't keep trying just to keep me paying. I am thankful for her help and will definitely call on her again if needed.
Lisa is by far the best attorney that I have ever encountered! Right up front, she was honest with me as to what the end results would be. I shopped around for an attorney to find what I felt was the best. I was steered towards other attorneys because of their "years of experience", however, I felt most comfortable with Lisa. She won my case, hands down!
Lisa Bertini always provided the utmost in professional guidance that was dependable, prompt and forthright. If difficult topics needed to be discussed, then she did so with the directness necessary, and always with compassion not often experienced in litigation. I would recommend her legal services to anyone, and have.
Lisa is an amazing attorney and I am so glad I found her. I was in one of the most difficult situations of my life, and at risk of losing my beloved, chosen profession as well as my livelihood. I felt so bad hopeless, but I knew that I had to defend myself. After meeting and talking with Lisa, right away she put me at ease. She was honest and straight forward, yet very understanding. And she really listened. I knew she was the right attorney for me. Lisa was with me every step of the way. She prepared me, guided me and instilled in me the confidence I needed to proceed through this ordeal. Things turned out very well for me. I had the best outcome and was able to protect my career and reputation. Lisa is so organized and thorough and like I said, she is honest. Lisa is just really good at what she does. She saved me and I will forever be grateful.
Lisa was never there for the money as some lawyers are. She was there for me and my family. I would recommend her to anyone near or far. I trusted her from the start and that says alot. Straight forward and honest, that's all I wanted and she exceeded that expectation.
Having worked recently with Ms. Bertini on my case I can say she did excellent job was very attentive returned my calls and questions in a very timely manner........overall she lived in performed up to my expectations. Very pleased with her work.
Ms. Bertini is excellent at her job. I have used her before and have recommended others to her. She extremely well versed in issues related to the higher education workplace. She gives her clients honest and straight forward advice, and is always looking out for their best interests. I will seek her out if ever the need arises.
I consulted with Mrs. Bertini regarding a wrongful termination suit. Mrs. Bertini understood what was happening, but unfortunately the place where I was employed did everything within the limits of the law to have me let go. However, Mrs. Bertini was appalled at how I was treated had written a letter to my place of employment and was able to obtain a better severance package for me due to this. Without Mrs. Bertini I would not have been able to obtain what was rightfully due to me. Mrs. Bertini is an honest lawyer with a good heart and will let you know if you have a case without costing you more money than you need to spend. I highly recommend Mrs. Bertini.
Lisa Bertini’s knowledge of Virginia Employment & Labor laws, Discrimination & Litigation is highly recognized by her peers and my family. Lisa was recommended her to me by two Virginia attorneys and a large Norfolk law firm. Her analytical abilities were clearly evident during my consultation. She analyzed the legal issues; applied her technical knowledge and knew the salient factors that ultimately drove a successful outcome. Lisa and her team adhere to the highest standards of Conduct. Ethics, reliability, responsiveness and open communication during the entire process. The quality of service provided by Lisa and her team was “priceless”. When considering “Value for the money” remember the following business definition: “Value for the Money” is a utility derived from every purchase or every sum of money spent. Value for money is based not only on the minimum purchase price (economy) but also on the maximum efficiency and effectiveness of the purchase. Thank you Lisa & staff of Bertini Law for closing one chapter of my life as I begin a new professional journey!
Lisa Bertini is, hands down, one of the smartest, toughest and most professional women I have ever met. She talks to you like you're an old friend & I never questioned her dedication to me or my case. Lisa was always very candid with me about what to expect while going through the EEOC process. I was never unsure of what was going on or what could happen next. She took time to make sure I was prepared to give a confident, accurate testimony and made me feel at ease in what should be a very stressful situation. I am so thankful that I was referred to Lisa after my wrongful termination. She listened to my story, empathized with my situation and fought hard to make sure I was compensated for troubles. In the end, I left Lisa's office with an incredible outcome - far more than I expected when I started the process. She is a brilliant attorney & genuinely good person. Although, I hope I never have to work with her again under the same circumstances, I hope our paths cross again because she is an amazing women that I will never forget.
There was a disagreement in the amount of severance I would receive from my previous employer upon my release from employment. Lisa Bertini was my legal representative to resolve the discrepancy. Lisa was a complete and total professional. I most highly and unequivocally recommend Lisa as a legal counsel for any employment or labor problem. She is a pleasure to work with and I am completely satisfied with the results of our negotiations. A true superstar!
Lisa Bertini is professional, knowledgable, and an all around pleasure to work with. I definitely got the best possible outcome during my legal matter and I attribute the success to her dedication and legal prowess.
She's the best. If you want an attorney who will genuinely put her all into your case and genuinely put up a FIGHT for you, you want Lisa Bertini. My case lasted longer than anyone would have predicted but Lisa never gave up on it or on me and we won in federal court. She meant more to me than just an attorney and she still does. This review is actually difficult for me to write because its hard to articulate how truly phenomenal this woman is. It is rare it is to find all of the qualities that she possesses in a person, let alone an attorney. I had no idea what I was doing when I realized I needed a lawyer but a friend told me that told Lisa Bertini was the "guru." Especially after seeing the unprofessional and completely inept behavior of our opposing counsel.... and I mean they really were just awful, I came to realize just how tremendously lucky it was that I found Lisa and had her working on my side. I never ever want to even think about being a plaintiff in a lawsuit again but can't even imagine how horrible the process would have been if Lisa had not been there for me. My case was never about the money. It was always about the principle and she poured her absolute all and her heart into it. Lisa Bertini simply is the best.
Ms. Bertini's handling of my case was excellent. She was very informed about the case law, gave updates on the progress over the course of the case, and did a complete prep for me to feel confident during the testimony phase of my case. I highly recommend her.
Lisa has been our corporate counsel for many years and offers guidance on all employment and HR matters. She always takes the time to be creative and positive in her approach while mindful of cost and outcome. Her response is immediate and excellent.
I have been working with Lisa Bertini for over 20 years. She is always available for my urgent calls either thru phone or email. She gives me quick, accurate advice and I have been able to win many VEC hearings based upon this advice. Lisa evaluates our company handbook annually. I value the service she provides to my company. I would highly recommend Lisa Bertini to any employer no matter the size of the company.
I never thought I would ever need legal assistance. In fact I had a difficult time coming to terms with the realization that I was the victim of employment discrimination. Ms Bertini, took the time to explain my rights. She helped me navigate the EEOC process. She was professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She gave me a realistic understanding of challenge I was up against. Her counsel during this process was invaluable.
Lisa Bertini and her staff are consummate professionals. I had never been involved in an injury case before, but I soon felt I had nothing to worry. They explained the process and help set the expectations as to what might happen. From there, they simply made sure I gave them what they needed and then handled everything. Communication was flawless; not once was I ever not in the loop or at a loss for where we were in the process of reaching settlement or going to trial. Over the course of 6 months, I received communications multiple times per week, and often multiple times a day. Every step of the way I knew they had my best interests at heart and that they were working hard to reach the desired outcome.
Lisa and her team responded to my request for a consult immediately. Lisa was knowledgeable and completely explained my rights. Shortly after meeting with her, I retained her services. My termination was never really a case but she was able to negotiate significantly better separation terms and additional benefits initially not offered during my termination. I highly recommend Lisa and her team when dealing with employment related issues. Due to the nature of this situation, I will leave this review anonymous.
Lisa has done a great job for me for over 20 years with all that I have needed. Goes out of her way to explain and help out in any way that she can. As far as I am concerned you will not be able to find anyone that has a better knowledge of their field than what she does. Overall just a great person to work with.
I contacted Lisa Ann Bertini's office seeking counsel on my legal rights and options regarding a hostile and abusive work environment. Lisa met with me in her office very quickly and it was immediately clear that she was not only a highly knowledgable attorney, but she was also compassionate and genuine. Lisa clearly communicated with me what actions were necessary in order to maintain my legal rights and she assisted me in every measure, from answering basic questions to specifically guiding me as I communicated with my employer and Human Resources. She was realistic with me about my options, yet empathetic as though she understood the anger and injustice herself. There was little potential for financial reward for either of us, but Lisa was persistent in negotiating a severance for me so that I would have the ability to leave an employer that failed to appropriately address persistent complaints by myself, and others before me, of harassment and discrimination. In my research regarding this specific area of employment law, I have read that claims of discrimination and hostile environments can be difficult to prove. Through repeated denials by my employer of any illegal or abusive behavior, Lisa stood her ground and she stood by me. Lisa believed me and she gave me an opportunity to have my experience heard in the hopes that this would not happen to another person. There is a lot of healing that takes place when we are validated and I am grateful to Lisa for both her legal counsel and support. I highly recommend Lisa Ann Bertini as legal counsel in Employment Law and encourage you to contact her if you suspect that you are being negatively impacted in your work environment.
Ms. Bertini kept me informed throughout the process and provided me with guidance as to filing my initial EEOC complaint . During mediation she help to understand the pros and cons of each offer as we worked through the process. I know that at all times she had my best interest at heart and wanted me to have the best possible outcome. She was honest and direct with me, which gave me comfort during a difficult time. She truly cares about her clients. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting justice in their case.
Lisa has been a great advocate in guiding me through a process that I never thought I would be part of. She is a good, efficient communicator and I never doubted she had my best interests and fairness at heart. In the end, we reached a fair settlement of my issues..
Lisa Bertini is very easy to work with, I was feeling a little overwhelmed by this case and her experience and knowledge of the law gave me enormous comfort. She listened to all that I said, then explained the process step by step and presented the options. Lisa and the entire staff are true professionals they worked hard on my behalf, always keeping me informed while providing support throughout the process. I’m happy to say that Lisa was able to resolve my claim quickly and efficiently. I can move on content that this case is settled. I would absolutely recommend Lisa Bertini.
Lisa is an excellent lawyer. She is knowledgeable and responsive. She provides great feedback and is very patient. She keeps me informed of ongoing changes in employment/labor laws and cases specific to my needs.
