Client reviews of V. Jonas Urba:

One client describes Jonas’ advice and support as “expert.” New York prohibits lawyers from calling themselves experts or specialists. New York’s Professional Rules permit lawyers to call themselves “specialists” only in limited ways. If the American Bar Association, to which Jonas belongs, certified him or any other lawyer in a specialty he would have to disclose such certification was not granted by any governmental authority.

Jonas was a Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil and County Court Mediator in Florida years ago. He no longer practices in any state except New York, which does not issue specialty certifications or expertise designations.

The following client reviews were drafted by former clients in their own words. Jonas limits his practice to employment law and labor matters. He represents primarily employees and sometimes small employers. He is not a general practitioner and does not undertake tax, criminal, intellectual property, immigration, family law, or international law or treaty matters.

Jonas is among a number of employment lawyers who agree to undertake representation selectively. You should do the same. If something feels off keep looking. Each client reviews client understood the value of careful selection.

Unfortunately no employment lawyer can guarantee results to any potential client. Each client is unique. All have different experiences.

Jonas approaches representation of any former employee or employer as a team effort. You help him and he will help you. If you do that he knows you really care about your labor or employment law matter and you will know he feels the same. You may need to gather documents including performance evaluations and pay records, other evidence, and maybe even reach out to a few witnesses before Jonas calls them. If you make that effort, results usually reflect that you did.

Employment separation is often stressful. There is no way to guarantee any former employee or employer a great outcome? Never. Are there things that former employees who reviewed Jonas below did to help their employment law matter? Absolutely! Each one was completely honest with Jonas. Each former employee responded promptly to requests for information. None had voice mails which were full. None had texted, e-mailed, or posted potentially damaging information on FaceBook or other social media about employers without telling Jonas up front. Do the same and hopefully your result will be as good or better than the following reviews by former employees / clients.

Call several lawyers. Contact details for Urba Law PLLC.  See who feels or sounds right for you.

Be spontaneous.

Answer questions directly.

Let your potential employment lawyer help direct you to relevant facts.

Understand and appreciate that the process is likely to take time. Sometimes predicting the end is almost impossible.

Appreciate that everyone’s time is valuable. The judge’s, yours, your lawyer’s, and even the employer’s counsel’s if you are a former employee.

Read the reviews, start calling some potential employment lawyers and good luck!

….Mr. Urba responded to my request for help in a very timely manner …..We were able to come to an agreement with my employer very rapidly due to Mr. Urba’s excellent assistance. I highly recommend that those in need of assistance do not try to work things out on their own, nor should they hire an attorney who is a generalist. It is important to work with an attorney who devotes his or her career to employment law–on the side of the employee. I want to thank Mr. Urba for bringing his years of knowledge to my situation.

Mr. Urba was very easy to work with …… His advice regarding which actions to pursue allowed me to successfully maintain my employment and secure my retirement benefits, which would have been eliminated 4 months before my eligibility date.


Excellent Attorney, The Best

…..From the first call to Jonas Urba, it was clear to me that he had a great understanding of DOL and employment law, and very importantly he was going to be pragmatic and strategic in evaluating the merit of my case and in developing the factual framework to win. He researched NY DOL cases and identified three to use as precedent for my case. Four months later, three appeals later and three decision reversals later, we won the case…… honest providing me with excellent legal counsel…..
