I needed an attorney to help me recover unpaid wages from an employer. I did not know where to start, so I did a Google search looking for an attorney that specialized in employment law. I called a few firms and I was unable to speak to a live person. I kept getting prompted to leave a message or to send an email. By the time I reached Vincent Sykes firm I was frustrated and angry, but I was relieved to be speaking to an actual human being!! When I asked to speak with an attorney, the gentleman informed me that he was Mr. Sykes. I felt an instant sense of relief. Mr. Sykes was kind and patient and compassionate. On our initial call he listened intently for 20 minutes and never asked for compensation. Mr. Sykes was never aggressive or driven by money. He spent at least 2 hours gathering information before we agreed that he would represent my case. He was always readily available and answered correspondence quickly. He was very honest with me and always made sure that I was fully aware and informed. In the end, Mr. Sykes was successful in helping me to get paid. I would highly recommend Mr. Sykes without reservation.
