Thought FOR THE WEEK

While there are some concerns about automation replacing human workers, AI is most successful when coupled with a human touch—or at least some human oversight. AI will likely play a large role in the future of work, but rather than replace employees, AI technology will change what type of work employees perform.

TOPIC OF THE WEEK

Women Changing the Landscape of Work.

This Women’s History Month, it’s time to admit that the breaking through the glass ceiling simply isn’t enough.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

While we certainly have a long way to go, I’m excited by the increasing number of women CEOs leading IPOs and large funding rounds. As this moves from an anomaly to an expectation, we will see more investor support for women leaders at all levels in 2022—giving a chance for more voices and styles to build the next generation of companies.

What Our Clients Say

"I contacted Blanchard & Walker to review an employment agreement after they were referred to me by another attorney. On very short notice, they made time to review my case. My expectation was a short conversation of what I was looking for, what they would offer for a service and negotiation of the representation fees. What I got, was quality time, an in-depth review of my case, and a recommendation that brought me peace of mind. They are professional, thorough and represent what we all hope for from a high quality law firm. I would recommend Blanchard & Walker to anyone looking for legal services in employment law. I could not be more impressed."
"David had represented me in an employment related issue.He is professional in his approach and he always understood my limitations and came up with a way ahead without sacrificing my case. He is sharp and he understands the nitty-gritties of complicated employment related issues. He is upright and doesn't hesitate to take that extra leap to make your voice heard. Mine was a complicated H1B issue but he could separate wheat from the chaff and concentrate on those key points to turn the case in my favor. I would recommend David to anyone who is struggling to represent their case. Read More
"Recently worked with Frances Hollander, needing a consult on a severance package. I was provided with a completely free consult, which lasted more than 30 minutes of her time; also having been contacted the day before to answer some starting questions, so all in all my time accounted for an hour of their working time. Not only was the response quick, and efficient in covering every aspect of the agreement, as well as asking background questions to ensure I was covered completely; Frances was also extremely personable and caring about my situation. I highly recommend this company!!!"
"I met David a couple years ago when faced with a tight deadline to sign a new employment contract that would jeopardize a patent I own. I submitted a question on the nachtlaw.com homepage around 8 pm and David responded within minutes. We met in person the next morning to craft a formal counter to my employer at the time. David’s quick response proved very valuable over the next few months as negotiation turned into mediation, and litigation. Throughout I felt David represented my best interests through to a final resolution of the matter. He was always available to help me through the process, regardless of the time commitment."
"Very helpful and knowledable team. Good system for returning correspondence. Kind and compassionate on the phone. Didn't try to shake me down for money at all, gave me an honest analysis of my case and a candid analysis on whether or not to pursue it. I definitely recommend these people."
"I was referred to David Blanchard by word of mouth from other attorneys who respected his expertise in employment and healthcare-related matters. The situation was very stressful and I was nervous about the effects on my career. Throughout the process, David took time to answer all of my questions and found practical ways address my particular concerns. He was knowledgeable about the nuances of the law as it related to my case and is generally a very caring and approachable person. It was reassuring to know that he was representing (and fighting!) for me. Read More

"David and his staff are empathetic, kind, compassionate and caring. He is an incredibly gifted attorney and he knows employment law and how to navigate what is a very complicated and confusing system.

Attorneys know good attorneys, so when my friend said go to David, I knew only he could help me. I was completely overwhelmed, stressed and confused with the situation ahead of me and David and his assistant Leslie really helped ease my stress and held my hand through the entire ordeal. I know he is very busy and he can't take every case, there just isn't enough time, but I feel extremely blessed to have worked with him."

She fought so long and hard for me while at the same time, keep the lines of communication open to me at all times. There is a saying, Do it with Passion or Not at All.....Angela does it with passion!"
"David Blanchard took our case when we were still in shock that our clinic closed. He was compassionate and he really listened. He tried everything possible for over a year to get us what was due us. He cared. David was incredibly knowledgeable. He kept in touch and answered our questions. He took a chance on us. I would highly recommend David for anyone who has an employment legal issue."
"Words can't express my gratitude to Angela Walker and her assistant, Leslie Wenzel. I've never worked with a lawyer before, but due to recent discriminatory issues I experienced at my workplace, I contacted Angela thanks to a friend's recommendation. I'm so glad I did! Along with their incredible professionalism and consistently timely follow-up, both Angela and Leslie were extremely kind and compassionate. Rather than filing a lawsuit, Angela was able to negotiate a solution with my company's counsel that I never thought was possible. Angela Walker is simply the best!"
