    When I was suddenly let go from my position, I was frustrated, angry, and scared. I felt very alone, and even ashamed. I knew my employer was in the wrong, but I wasn't sure exactly how, or what steps to take to hold them accountable. Stephen knew. He and his staff were efficient, diligent, and ensured that I was informed and approved of every step they took. My issue was settled very favorably within 2 weeks. While I hope that I do not need his services again, I would not hesitate to contact Stephen if the need arose, and I recommend him without hesitation. Read less

    I contacted Mr. Jaffe in the wake of wrongful conduct, retaliation, and other sensitive workplace issues. From the first conversation to the last, he was well-balanced, combining professional efficiency and acumen with a relaxed disposition and understanding. He was bold when the situation required, respectful of me and others in the situation, and attentive to the tense and shifting atmosphere. What I feared would be a long and arduous case resulted in the opposite: a swift and just resolution. Read less
