What Our Clients Say
“Throughout my career I had dealt with many legal issues through business, but this was my first experience in needing legal advice and representation for a personal matter. In seeking a qualified attorney in employment law, Barry Hersh was recommended to me by an in house attorney from another company. I found Barry to be not only knowledgeable, experienced and skilled but a genuinely caring person. He gave me the courage and encouragement to hang in there through what was a long, arduous journey that frankly should have been settled quickly by my former employer. Barry reminded me more than once that I had been wronged and we were on the right side of getting the pay that I had earned and was due to me. The patience and preparation paid off as demonstrated by the outcome. I recommend Barry and the Hersh Law Firm without reservation and will use them in business and personal issues should the need ever arise again.”
- Madison, Sr. Vice President - International Franchising (Unpaid Bonus)
"It is never easy to take on an employer with a lawsuit to uphold your rights. As an employee, it is easy to assume that no one can help you with your struggles but if Barry Hersh is on your side you can move ahead with confidence. He is driven to uphold the law and is willing to work hard to make sure that his client gets the best help possible and in a timely way. He explains laws and rights clearly and concisely and he is always available to answer questions or give you a pep talk when doubt creeps into your thoughts. Stand up for your hard earned rights and hire Barry Hersh with confidence. He is the best. Thanks Barry."
- Diana, Server/Wine Tasting Associate (Wrongful Termination and Retaliation)
"I want to thank Barry for assisting me with my employment law dispute against my employer of over twenty years. As the CEO for all of those years - I never expected to have any legal conflict with my employer. Barry quickly assessed my employment situation and gave me extremely sound legal advice. I retained him and, with his representation, I was able to settle my wrongful termination claim in a short period of time with a terrific outcome for me. Barry was very strong in representing my interests in a legally difficult and emotional dispute. I highly recommend Barry Hersh. He will level the playing field for a client who needs legal representation in a difficult situation."
- Ron, Chief Executive Officer (Age Discrimination)
"I was referred to Barry Hersh by a friend who previously worked with Barry at a different firm in Dallas. Barry exceeded all my expectations and was able to help me navigate some tricky contract/employment issues with my former employer. In addition to the employment issues, Barry provided me with sound legal advice in dealing with a subsequent defamation suit that was filed against me by my former employer. Barry is very professional, articulate, and tactful when dealing with his clients and opposing legal counsel. Barry ultimately guided me towards a settlement that left me very satisfied and content with the end result. I would highly recommend Barry Hersh to anyone with no reservations whatsoever."
- Suresh, Anesthesiologist (Employment Agreement and Defamation)
"I have the benefit of having Barry on my side. Barry assisted me in negotiating a new experience for me -- being let go from a company with no notice due to a pregnancy. Barry was able to keep me well apprised of the situation, insight into the process, and providing me balance from his experience both from my perspective and my former employer. I was able to resolve my dispute only with Barry's assistance. I would high[ly] recommend Barry to my friends and family if they were in a similar situation."
- Carrie Fowler, Director (Sex and Pregnancy Discrimination) [name and title changed]
“I highly recommend Mr. Hersh to anyone who needs assistance in claiming unpaid commissions. Mr. Hersh's attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of the law, put us ahead at all times. Barry made me feel like I was a part of a team as opposed to one person against a bully. Mr. Hersh made great efforts to know the nuances and details of my case. He was always conscientious and fair. Barry was in constant communication with me along the way, keeping me in the loop and discussing all updates and details until the very end. I know that I will have a lifelong association with the Hersh Law Firm in assisting me with any employment law needs for myself and my company. Thank you Barry, for all your help and support.”
- Rachel, Telecommunications Sales (Unpaid Commissions)
"What a great experience. Attorneys are famous for being cold. The process is never pleasant but to my surprise the process with Mr. Hersh at Hersh Law Firm was incredible. Mr. Hersh was very down to earth. He listened to my story and my needs and was incredibly helpful. I felt like I was talking to a friend. He was very knowledgable and was very diligent in working on my case. It was a pleasure to have him as my attorney. I know now that there is at least one attorney out there I can trust. Thank you for everything Mr. Hersh."
- Jaime, Chief Creative Officer (Incentive Compensation Agreement)
“I wanted to express my thanks for resolving my longstanding [overtime] issue against my former employer. Your knowledge of the details and nuances of Employment law is astounding. You had excellent communication skills throughout the whole process from the [pre-]litigation to the trial, and every step along the way. Without your help and knowledge of the law, I doubt very seriously that the outcome would have been what it was. Over the last 2 years of this case, you have shown such dedication to my case and myself … I would recommend the Hersh Law Firm for anyone that has any type of employment law issues, either employer or employee. Mr. Barry Hersh, in my opinion, is the best employment lawyer in Texas. I did see all the awards he has received over the years and, from how my case was handled, he deserves every one of them … Again I cannot express my gratitude for your help and guidance through this whole process. Thank You.”
- Kimon, Car Audio Technician (Independent Contractor Misclassification and Overtime Pay)
“Barry recently helped me settle a case involving many layers and legal issues. Throughout the process, he not only tended to the legal matters, but paid attention to how the case was affecting me personally. I knew from the start that this meant as much to Barry as it did to me, but never felt that it was a concern about the money he stood to make. Barry was the calm in the storm and remained steadfast in his approach and demands of my former employer. I can't even begin to describe the diligence that Barry showed throughout the process--whether it was collecting facts, researching recent cases and rulings that may help us, or communicating every step of the way late at night, weekends, and holidays. It seems as though he never took a day off from my case. I honestly can't say enough to describe how pleased I am with Barry and the efforts he put forth to help my family and me. There is no second choice when it comes to an employment attorney!”
- Jeremy, Funeral Home Director (Retaliation)
"Barry is one of the brightest, no-nonsense attorneys in Dallas. He told me that the odds of winning a protracted legal dispute were not favorable, but promised to do everything he could to help me win… His handling of the matter, from start to finish was nothing short of top drawer… His no-nonsense demeanor let my former employer know from Day one that we were serious about pursuing our legal rights... If your employer is attempting to bully you, I strongly recommend the legal services of Barry Hersh."
- Charlie, Senior Vice President (Age Discrimination)
"Barry was not only knowledgeable and effective as it concerned representation in my case... but he was also very kind and personable. If you need assistance in labor law, and want to be represented by someone who cares about the client more than the pay, then Barry Hersh cannot be beat. Thanks for your attention to me as a client as well as the issues I faced."
- Mark, Inside Sales (Overtime Pay and Retaliation)
"Barry was on the 'other side' of a matter involving my firm and I was so impressed by his performance and integrity, that in a subsequent [unrelated] matter, my company hired him. We continue to consult with Barry on other matters and I not only find his advice to be direct and on point but he also incredibly cost effective. His goal is to solve the issue as expeditiously as possible, and not unnecessarily prolong a case."
- David, General Counsel (Day-to-Day Counseling)
"Mr. Hersh, Thank you so much for your diligent and fruitful efforts with my case. I always felt as though you were genuinely concerned about my family's best interest. I truly appreciate the time you took to fully explain everything to me. You obtained far better results than I expected and because of your determination and legal guidance, the process was much easier than I anticipated. Thank you!"
- Dana, Office Manager (Wrongful Termination)
"I've spent a lot of time covering lawyers. I've seen Racehorse Haynes litigate. I've dealt with both DeGuerins and the last five Texas Attorneys General. I know a good lawyer when I see one and Barry Hersh ranks at the top. I was most impressed by his direct and persuasive brief. Barry also showed patience and insight as he handled the issues of my case. The Hersh Law Firm has provided a valuable service at a critical time for me. I recommend Barry Hersh to anyone who is dealing with employment issues."
- Bob, News Reporter/Radio Personality (Overtime Pay)
"Being this was my first legal conflict, I was very confused on the steps to reach a lawyer. After calling at least 20 lawyers, no one but you gave me an opportunity. I much appreciate your fast attention and guidance to reach a resolution. Going against [...] is not an easy task, but your expertise and diligence shows you are the right man for the job. We were able to reach settlement without going to court. Meaning, I was able to get paid faster then expected. I will always be your client if ever needed for any circumstance. Thank you and your staff."
- Rudy, Admin Assistant (Independent Contractor Misclassification)
"I cannot describe what an invaluable asset Mr. Hersh has been to our company. As a small business with 20 employees, it is challenging to manage the complexities of employment law and deal with the day-to-day demands of the business. Mr. Hersh encouraged us to update our Employee Handbook and employment forms last year. With a small management team, it seemed like a lot of work at first. We wondered if it was 'overkill'... Seven months after we completed the project, we had to let one of our executives go. It was then that we realized how critical this task was. Because of Barry's work, the company was well prepared, and most importantly, well protected. We cannot thank Mr. Hersh enough for his dedication to our business. We recommend him highly and consider him to be a valuable asset to our company."
- Lori, Owner (Employment Handbook and Day-to-Day Counseling)
"I have been truly blessed with my experience with Barry Hersh. He was extremely knowledgeable of paralegal overtime laws. He never backed down and he got me the results that I deserved. He was extremely effective in all aspects of his representation of me. I will gladly refer him to anyone with a labor/employment law situation in the future. He is one of a few attorneys I have encountered who truly cares about his clients in all aspects of their representation."
- Callie, Paralegal (Overtime Pay)
"Thanks for representing me in my case against my former employer. This case involved a very complex set of issues and I appreciated the fact that you were able to easily break it down for me and present a well thought out strategy. As it turns out, your extensive preparation and research carried the day. It was apparent during the ensuing discussions with my former employer that it was not in their best interests to take you on. In the end, they conceded without the need for us to pursue additional legal action. I am very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend you to anyone who seeks legal support for all employment related issues."
- Mike, General Manager (Breach of Severance Agreement and Non Compete)
"I do not know what I would have done without the help of Barry in my employment case. Barry was extremely head strong, took on my former employer like David took on Goliath. He never backed down and he pursued it until the end. I am a single mother who had serious financial difficulties due to my wrongful termination. Barry treated me like a human being and not just a client. He promptly returned all of my e-mails and phone calls...Barry gave me the strength to hang in there for what I deserved and not to settle for a mere pittance. He knew we were right and they were wrong. I thank him with all of my heart. Barry is extremely intelligent and a genius in his field of labor/employment law. I would recommend Barry in any labor/employment law case whether defending plaintiff or defendant, he is the best I have ever seen, and I have fourteen years of legal experience."
- Lisa, Paralegal (Wrongful Termination)
"Thanks to the Hersh Law Firm, the phrase 'b*tch slapped' took on a completely new meaning. My former employer now understands exactly which isle the Vaseline is on ... and how to apply it. Just kidding, of course. The Hersh Law Firm handled my case like true professionals. Barry continuously amazed me with his knowledge of Employment Law. He handled my case quickly, and the end result completely exceeded my expectations. If you need an attorney to handle your employment disputes, the Hersh Law Firm comes highly recommended. Thanks Barry!"
- David, Lab Technician (Overtime Pay and Wrongful Termination)
"Thanks for handling my case and bringing it to an excellent resolution. Your knowledge and pragmatic analysis helped me focus on the important factors...sidestepping the emotional pitfalls associated [with] such cases. Hopefully, I won't experience another employee-related issue, but, if I do, I'll contact you again."
- Rob, General Counsel (Breach of Employment Contract)
"I wanted to...thank you for all your help and expertise in achieving a positive outcome regarding the supposed non-compete agreement between my husband and [his former employer]. Had you not been the caliber of attorney you are I'm not sure the outcome would have been the same. My past experiences with lawyers have all been what many have come to expect, an empty pocket and a deep distrust of the legal profession. I must say that you completely change[d] my opinion...I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend you to someone. You should consider expanding into other areas of the law. Again, thank you so much."
- Cindy, President (Non-Compete Agreement and Unfair Competition)
"I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with you on this case. My wife and I were amazed of your guidance on this case throughout the process. We both thank you very much for all your help. Thanks again."
- Kumar, Periodontal Surgeon (Physician Employment Agreement)
"My experience with the Hersh Law Firm was truly a blessing...I believe his knowledge about the law was nothing short of miraculous. Working with the Hersh Law Firm gave me the choice to stay at home with my new baby."
- Mary, IT Director (Pregnancy Discrimination)
"I just wanted to tell you how pleased my management team was with your seminar. I feel that they received great practical information that will improve our hiring process and the retention of our existing employees."
- Cliff, President/CEO (Anti-Harassment Training)
"I found myself in a situation where I thought that I had legal recourse but had neither the time nor the resources to pursue it...Barry partnered with me providing knowledge, wise counsel, and the time needed to accomplish the goals we had established. He...kept me up to date with what had happened and what would happen next. I was extremely pleased with both performance and the end result of working with the Hersh Law Firm."
- Stuart, Chief Financial Officer (Wrongful Termination)
"I just wanted to thank you for all you did for [my daughter]. As a parent, it is not easy to go through these things and keep quiet at times but I appreciate all your work and professionalism. If I am ever given the opportunity to send someone your way, you can be sure I will do so. Thanks again."
- Michael, Account Executive (Sexual Harassment) (Parent of Client)
- Don and Shirlee, Owners (Accused of Wrongful Termination)
"I want to thank you for representing us in our overtime case. The entire process was easy and your attention to detail was exactly what I was looking for. You went above and beyond my expectations and got us the decision that we wanted. I have to say I was nervous going into this because I had never been in a lawsuit, but you kept us in the loop the entire time. I would recommend you to anyone that is looking for an honest and fair attorney."
- James, Landman (Independent Contractor Misclassification)
"The Hersh Law Firm was an excellent choice to resolve our legal matter. Barry was the most versed of the three firms we consulted with. Once he took our case, his approach was straightforward, honest, and pragmatic the whole way through. The Hersh Law Firm put sincere effort and time into our case on a professional and human level, making us feel confident and comfortable with the outcome."
- Matthew, Landman (Overtime Pay)
"Over the last 50+ years in [the] Entertainment and Development industries, I have met and worked with a large number of attorneys. I must say that the Hersh Law Firm, and Barry Hersh in particular, far outrank any [of my] past experiences. Barry is not an attorney that works with you from 9:00 to 5:00, but I found that he became “part of our family” 24/7. He encouraged, critiqued, and advised me on a number of significant legal issues ... I believe that the Hersh Law Firm, and Barry Hersh in particular, are the most thorough, accurate, and have the highest degree of integrity of any firm I’ve ever known. My only disappointment … is that, at this point, we have concluded [the representation], and I don’t have the opportunity to see or work with Barry on a more regular basis. I would encourage anyone involved in any legal matter regarding employment law to highly consider the Hersh Law Firm. On a scale of 1 – 10, I would say they are at least a 15.”
