John and Karen Goyette, Cromwell, CT

At the beginning of my legal issues at work, I was focused on Retaining an Attorney to help me out with the position I was in. After interviewing with other Attorneys, I was quite impressed when we got together on [Attorney Hayber’s] knowledge of my concerns and how [he] listened to me and kept me focused when needed. I felt our communication working together was excellent and [his] response with the other party was keeping the case moving as going back to work was my main concern. Even once I was back to work [he] made a follow up call to me which meant quite a lot. I have told other people if they need help on any Legal issues, [he is] the one to contact.

I heartily endorse Rick Hayber to anyone wishing to speaking with an employment attorney. Attorney Hayber showed a great deal of empathy and a thorough understanding of my situation during the time we worked together. He explained upfront how he worked and what I could expect so there were never any surprises. He was very efficient in the use of his time on my behalf but at the same time was always warm and welcoming.

Rick consistently gave me several well thought out options to consider, as well as the potential upside and/or downside of each, before I would decide how best to proceed. I was very impressed with his knowledge of state and federal employment law and his passion to help people with his expertise.

Rick Hayber & his team renewed my faith in lawyers and the system. When you are fighting against employers, it feels like David fighting Goliath. Rick stood by me when few other people would. He truly believes in helping people. He cares and that is conveyed in all that he does. It is a long process, and he took the time to make sure that I understood everything that I need to in order to make the right decisions. He also took the time to make sure that I was ok as a person. I always appreciated that he would listen and that he cared. He even called me before he was getting on a plane for vacation to make sure that everything was in order. I trust him completely as an attorney and as a person and I would recommend him to anyone who needs his services. He is a great attorney.
