Select review of Busayo:
“Busayo was wonderful. I had a bad situation after being let go from my place of employment after many years. I had never used a lawyer before and after some of the stories I had heard of others, was rather reluctant but needed help. Busayo was extremely professional, handled everything in a calm manner, all the while being in total control of everything. I was not handling things too well, but felt calm in her presence and felt comfortable in knowing that she had a handle on everything. The outcome was better than I expected. Busayo was compassionate and kind to me, but did not back down in the boardroom. I highly recommend her if you are looking for an employment lawyer. Thanks Busayo!” – JD
“Busayo Faderin, handled my termination resolution. She was extremely, knowledgeable with employment law. I truly felt this with the depth with which documents were prepared. Busayo went the extra mile to make sure I understood the process, documents, and resolution. Busayo, made sure any questions were answered in a timely matter. At no point, did I feel any complacency and was very happy for her staying on top of things. I truly, felt a genuine caring and kind-spirit behind what, she did for me. Busayo, completely altered for the better, my preconceived, misconceptions of lawyer’s, and the way they work, thank you!”
