“Raymond and his firm helped me through a job transition in a most supportive and realistic manner. Atty. Dinsmore was very knowledgeable about the true legal issues vs. emotional reactions to a job transition. I highly recommend his firm for employee-employer resolutions and the stress-free experience working with them.”
