What our clients say about Simon Pelsmakher
Simon Pelsmakher (and Melissa) were simply tremendously helpful in quickly helping me sort out an issue I had with a severance agreement I’d just been presented with. The issue involved referencing the original employment contract. I’d tried getting an answer to my relatively narrow question from other sources, but I was only meet with a “templated” scheduling of an initial consultation (at an hourly rate). Melissa quickly understood the issue, focused Simon, he sought advice from his team colleagues, & within minutes had resolved my query & set my mind at ease on how to proceed. “Hats off” to a great team effort well done, truly appreciated the professionalism, & I’d highly recommend Simon, his team, & the firm.
