Can't speak highly enough of Kam, she is brilliant. She took on my brother's unfair dismissal. From start to finish she was Professional, Honest, extremely Knowledgeable and Thorough. From the very beginning she made him feel valued and like he mattered after being treated very poorly. Kam cares about people when they feel beaten down and alone. She provides the knowledge and experience to go up against those who don't care.

I highly recommend May with no hesitation to anyone seeking assistance with employment law issues. She is calm and professional, caring and supportive. She was invaluable in helping me manage an extremely stressful situation, which I could not handle effectively on my own. I found May to be very direct, honest and cost effective. She always had my best interests at heart. There was no mucking around and I would not have achieved the result that I did without her help. Thank you May for your kind and professional help!

We dealt with Sandy Jamison who is based in Wellington. We are from Auckland and Sandy was just amazing. She showed empathy, she didn't judge, she listened and her communication was prompt. She worked effortlessly on our case and sometimes this meant working through her weekends. We really appreciate everything she did for us and the outcome was a win. I knew from the moment I spoke with her I could trust her and we cannot thank her enough. Thank you so much for everything Sandy 😊

Just want to say a big thank you to Kam Bailey - she is an amazing and very experienced employment advocate. I rang several employment lawyers and advocates before I talked to Kam - out of all of them, she was the one who listened to me from the beginning and really took the time to understand my situation. She did an outstanding job representing me at mediation. I'm very grateful for her assistance and would highly recommend her to my friends and relatives.

The whole experience with these guys deserves a 5 star review!! The first phone call, the way I was listened to, being referred to my Advocate and speaking to her within the hour. It was all 5 star worthy. The advice she gave me and the questions she asked to get to the bottom of the matter made everything clearer even to me as I was down a rabbit hole and couldn't figure out what was going on. Would highly recommend them. Turns out the whole situation was a blessing in disguise as I have come out if it with not just my pride in tact but with a great reference and some financial compensation. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Thank you so much for all the support I received with my employment problem. You achieved a great outcome to what felt to me like a hopeless situation. I highly recommend the team Work Law, in particular Sandy for her great listening skills and Lawrence for his knowledge and excellent negotiation with my employer. Everyone came away happy with the outcome, I can't thank you enough.
