What Our Clients Say
A word about online reviews and our guarantee.
Perhaps you've noticed that online reviews seem to be everywhere today. We've noticed that many of those websites and social media platforms that enable reviews of lawyers and law firms do not guarantee that the review is from an actual client. In fact, we observed that -- if you read closely -- some reviews associated with other law firms are submitted by the law firm's employees, friends of the firm, or other non-clients. Those reviews tend to recommend a lawyer, describe his/her qualities, but provide no details about actually using that law firm's services. Worse, some reviews refer to lawyers no longer associated with that law firm.
So where does that leave you? Neither type of review helps you learn about the law firm or reduce the challenge of selecting an employment law firm. Some people even think that those kinds of reviews are outright misleading.
Because we understand that selecting a lawyer is one of the most important work-related decisions you may make, Hersh Law Firm PC guarantees that: (1) each of the reviews on our website is submitted by a bona-fide current or former client, (2) each review relates to our client's experience working with Barry Hersh, and (3) no client has been paid or otherwise compensated for their reviews.
Hersh Law Firm PC doesn't make this guarantee because we have to. We do it because integrity is important and we presume that it is important to you too.
"Hi Barry! You have been the most amazing lawyer I have ever seen! You spent so much time making sure that I was comfortable with every step of the way. There was so much respect and dignity and you built me up in a way that gave me so much confidence. The entire experience has been so positive. The respect you showed to the other side was incredible! Having gone through 2 [different lawsuits], practically simultaneously, I can see the striking differences. You totally understand the dynamics of the case you were working on, and that was reflected in your approach and handling of the case. It was very very impressive. You maintained an amazing attitude throughout the entire process. All in all, I have nothing but gratitude for you. I'm grateful for the experience and for the outcome. Most importantly, I'm grateful for the confidence you have in me and the time and effort you spent making sure I was comfortable. God bless you!"
- Miri, Pharmacist (Denial of religious accommodation and wrongful termination)
“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)
"In early 2018, I was wrongfully discharged and treated unfairly and was put into that unfortunate situation where I needed legal counsel to protect me and my rights. After interviewing many potential attorneys, I selected Barry Hersh. From the first minute we met, I felt he was looking at me as if I was someone whom he wanted to help and not just a paycheck. We spoke for hours during our first meeting as he allowed me to share all the details of my situation so he had a complete and detailed understanding of all the facts. Other attorneys I had met with cut our meeting off after 60 minutes, or were preoccupied with other business dealings leaving me less than comfortable that they would be looking out for my best interest. Barry was singularly focused [on my situation] the entire time. Even still, after selecting Barry, I was concerned whether he would represent me well, whether he would listen to me, and whether he would appreciate my input and ideas. The answer to all those questions is 'yes.' He worked very hard, and was always available and timely with his responses or questions. He made what could have been a very anxious and difficult process very easy to manage and I was amazed at not only the outcome but the short amount of time it took to complete the process. If needed again, I would not hesitate to use Barry or recommend Barry Hersh and his team to anyone !!!"
- Steve, Chief Marketing Officer (Breach of Employment Agreement)
"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)
- Michael, Chief Executive Officer (Breach of severance agreement)
"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 knowledgeable 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 long standing [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)
"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 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 aisle 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 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.”
- Michael, President (Wrongful termination and deferred compensation)
- Todd, Associate General Counsel/co-counsel (Denial of religious accommodation and wrongful termination)
"After being told by the Department of Labor that I was due overtime wages, but that their caseload was too large to help, I contacted several attorneys. I was turned down by all the other attorneys except Barry Hersh. He did his homework and gathered information about my situation instead of turning me down ... When we spoke on the phone, I never felt rushed or manipulated into a decision that I wasn't comfortable with. Barry also talked me down from a few anxiety attacks over my case! The one thing that I was very impressed with is that he e-mailed me every time he had information on my case. I never felt out of the loop or in the dark about what was going on. I've never had someone go to bat for me and push to get what I deserved. Barry also got my case settled in just a few months. You can't ask for more than that! Thank you so much!"
- Christy, Nanny (Overtime pay)
"I was not paid overtime by a home health company I worked for. I looked for a attorney who had knowledge of the 'overtime law and whom also had rave reviews. I came across Barry Hersh on Avvo and his reviews were stellar so he is the attorney I decided to go with. It was the best decision I could have made. Barry was very personable and professional and he made it a point that I understood everything that was going on in my case. I could ask questions at anytime and he always answered in a timely manner no matter what time I chose to ask my questions. I would recommend anyone fighting for their overtime pay to contact Barry Hersh. He's awesome!"
- Teresa, Certified Nursing Aide (Overtime pay)
"Years ago, Barry started working on my case. I didn’t know if I would ever get even with a company that did me so wrong. It all worked out in the end. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. The way you handled over 100 employees was simply spectacular. Thanks Barry!"
- Christian, Cable Technician (Overtime pay)
"Barry took my case and never gave up even when I lost all hope of any recovery. He was a warrior from start to finish. I was always in the loop on every little detail and he always answered my calls and questions. His creativity was the key in getting a win for a lot of people in this case. Barry, thank you again for all your hard work."
- Frank, Cable Technician (Overtime pay)
"I would like to thank you and Hersh Law Firm for its hard work and dedication through this long journey. The ongoing updates and status [updates] for the case were greatly appreciated. Hopefully none of us experience another ordeal such as this, but if I know of anyone that requires your assistance I will be sure to recommend your law firm without hesitation. ... Thank you!"
- Gilbert, Cable Technician (Overtime pay)
"I just want to say 'Thank You' for the awesome job you did for us all on the King Cable Suit!!! Your 'GREAT' service did not go unnoticed and I can't thank you enough!!!! Once again, awesome job. Keep up the 'GREAT WORK SIR'!!!"
- Eric, Cable Technician (Overtime pay)
"You've performed way beyond my expectations and you were most professional and gave it your best even though this case was a very small one, your professionalism did not change you still gave it your 100% attention says much about your character and the kind of man you are ... Once again thank you."
- Gilbert, Maintenance (Overtime pay)
"Barry is top notch. Every step of the way, Barry kept me informed and always thoroughly explained everything. Not only that, he felt like a friend guiding you through the process and not what you typically expect an attorney to be like. Worth every penny; do not hesitate to reach out."
- Kyle, IT Services (Retaliation for complaining about PTO policy) (Overtime pay)
"I had a fantastic experience working with Barry. He made the whole process as simple as can be. I personally believe Barry’s best quality is his communication. He constantly kept me updated with the status of our case and made sure I knew how things were situated in the present and how he planned to move forward. He always was looking out for what was in my best interest and made sure I agreed with every decision we made. I can’t think of a single time when Barry didn’t email or call me back promptly, even on nights or weekends Barry would get back to me about any questions I had. I highly recommend Barry to anyone who is looking for an employment lawyer. He handled everything I could ask of him and more. I felt like he was personally invested in my case and this personal touch is what really pushed the experience over the top. I would have been completely lost without his experience and guidance. You will not go wrong with Barry."
- Nick, IT Services (Retaliation for complaining about PTO policy)
- Jeff, Sr. Vice President (Flat-fee employment agreement review)
"Barry did a great job in helping me understand a very complicated severance package offered after 20 years of service as an executive. He also advised me, beyond the scope of the severance package, on business law matters related to my career transition. He is very knowledgeable. His counsel was extremely helpful. He was patient and understanding but most of all, he was objective in terms of what was best for me. He tailored his advice based on my unique circumstances and goals; and not on a one size fits all approach as is more common in this industry than I expected. He took the time to understand the context of my issues and was able to explain things in a clear and intuitive way that provided me insight. Barry gave me confidence in the decisions I made. I feel with Barry is in my corner, now and in the future should the need arise, I am taken care of. I highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation."
- Joe, Vice President (Flat-fee severance agreement review)
- Michell, IT Director (Flat-fee severance agreement review)
- Chris, Manager (flat-fee non-compete agreement review)
- J, Construction (Overtime pay)
"Working with Barry was the best decision I could have made. Not only did he educate me on non-compete law, but he did his research around my specific case and advised me on the various paths to take. He was extremely helpful, patient and made me feel heard. I highly recommend consulting with Barry on any labor questions you might have. "
- Alex, Client Services (Flat-fee non-compete agreement review)
"Watching Barry work during this [legal] process and engaging with him regularly has been inspiring. He is a master of his craft. Barry is diligent, thoughtful, determined, respectful, and brilliant in the practice of law. He kept me informed and educated every step of way. He gave me the continued confidence to pursue my case during a lengthy process and never wavered in his pursuit of justice for me and my family. I am thankful he was referred to me and I highly recommend him."
- Chris, Vice President - Sales (Unpaid bonuses and fraud)
- Doug (Flat-fee employment agreement review)
"Mr. Hersh, you have been a great help to me and my family. I went to at least 10 different attorneys before you. No one could help. Nor did they believe I had a case. You had no doubt that I had a case and walked me through every step along the way. Thank you for all your help! Honestly, having you as my attorney felt like I had a friend fighting for me."
- Jeremy, Swimming Pool Tech (Overtime pay)
- Starla, Contract Employee to Staffing Agency (Overtime pay)
"Barry was amazing, very professional, rapid response time and invaluable in terms of additional insight and advice. Full knowledge of employment law, and handled my requirements without fault. I would highly recommend Barry Hersh for any employment matters."
- Mark, President (Negotiation of executive employment agreement)
"I sought Barry’s counsel in the review of my Separation Agreement, NDA and Non-Compete. Our virtual consultation was richly informative and highly beneficial, and it was clear he came to the call well prepared and ready to discuss my situation. Instead of just providing his opinions, he painstakingly walked through every element of the document with me, delivering input and helping me see all sides of the situation. He also caught something I’d overlooked and that put my mind at ease.
Barry is not a bombastic attorney, nor is he a pushover. He listens with empathy, genuinely taking in the elements of the conversation and advising on the best way to proceed. His years of experience in this field truly shine through. No one ever wants to consult with an attorney, but Barry made the whole process – strange as this sounds – enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a reputable, highly competent attorney in the Employment Law field."
- Sandra, Director (Flat-fee severance agreement review)
- Nicole, Director (Breach of employment agreement and wrongful termination)
- David, Vice President (Flat-fee consultation about workplace issues)
