Severance Attorneys in NY, NJ and MA

Severance Negotiations: Don't wait for checkmate

Every person who contacts our firm with a severance agreement will be scheduled for a free initial screening with a lawyer. We also offer “lawyers get paid only if you get more severance pay” fee arrangements for those who are offered severance agreements.

Severance Negotiations Are A Game Of Chess

If your company offers you a severance payment, they will give you a severance agreement and ask you to sign it. A signed severance agreement is very valuable for a company because it contains a “release of claims” – in other words, when you sign the severance agreement, in exchange for money and agreeing to leave peacefully, the employer knows they will not be sued and that you will not stir up trouble on your way of the door, or shortly thereafter, by filling a lawsuit, sabotaging the workplace, or contacting the press and airing your grievances publicly.

Well, what if the value of agreeing to leave peacefully and release claims is much more than what they offer? In our experience, it almost always is.

You Are A Pawn In The Severance Game

Employers know that employees often don’t know when they have legal claims against their employer. Often, an employer will provide a severance agreement with a “release of claims” and an offer of severance pay that does not reflect the true value of the legal claims you are agreeing to forgo.

If You Hire A Lawyer In The Severance Game, Your Pawn Becomes A Queen

A no-cost severance pay screening with one of our lawyers will cost you nothing and could result in you getting more, sometimes much more. This is because lawyers know if you have legal claims, and can send a “demand letter” explaining this to your former employer demanding that you be paid more severance.

We turn the severance game around so the pawn becomes the powerful queen – you are the one in control of the severance negotiation.

We Only Get Paid If You Get More

In our experience, most people who call us with severance agreements have leverage to get more. We offer attractive fee agreements because it’s a safer bet for us – we only get paid if you get more. If you don’t get more, we get nothing.

There isn't a day that I don't regret calling their office. I got what I deserved and was able to move on with my life. I hope I don't have to ever return however I feel safe having Chris in my back pocket if I need him!

My former employer hired one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in the world. I hired Brendan Sweeney and his team. They achieved an outstanding result and I never felt that we were outgunned. Brendan is smart and practical, and his team was great.

Christopher and his team were EXCELLENT! Christopher was very kind and understanding he listened, gave good advice and was able to deliver on my behalf, anyone who uses his services are in great hands!

Brendan's been a rock-solid resource for me.

I couldn't be more grateful to be working with this firm, and I'd recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

He is an aggressive attorney – he also understands how to work effectively with opposing counsel.  Chris went up against one of the top law firms in New York City and was able to resolve the issue 100% to my satisfaction.

Brendan Sweeney and his team have always stood out to me for their level of confidence when they give me high-level counsel.

Without going into detail, Chris and his people have gone WAY above and beyond what I ever expected of a law firm. It's actually kind of unbelievable what they've done for me. I couldn't be happier with their services and would recommend them to anyone.

Christopher Davis and his team are exceptional practitioners who masterfully refined and pursued my highly complex case. Working with the Law Office of Christopher Davis has been a very positive experience including great client communication, helpful collaborative technology, and empathy.

Chris has been a lifesaver during one of the most painful employment experiences in my life. He knows his stuff, is incredibly responsive, and — above all — is one of the kindest people I've met.
