Anyone who is considering the engagement of an employment lawyer should look no further.Mark Lazarz is a consummate professional. Anyone who is considering the engagement of an employment lawyer should look no further. My entire experience at Shellist Lazarz & Slobin was exemplary. It’s clear the firm is well respected amongst their peers.
Mark provided me counsel and guidance at the conclusion of a 20 year career. It was a tumultuous period where every decision I made impacted the rest of my life. Not in a million years did I ever think I would find myself in the situation I was dealing with.
At our initial consultation Mark exhibited a quiet confidence, genuine empathy and an inherent ability to listen and understand.
After making the decision to retain Mark I immediately witnessed how detail oriented he is. I was provided a clear understanding of all possible outcomes (good and bad) and the steps we needed to take in order to execute a positive outcome. The counsel Mark provided me every step of the way was invaluable.
Mark is passionate about his craft as a lawyer, but more importantly advocating for his clients.
Thankfully, as a direct result of the counsel provided by Mark Lazarz we were able to finalize an extremely favorable out of court settlement.
I will forever be grateful to Mark for his unwavering guidance and support.
This is the first review I have ever written.
Mr. Lazarz brought an instant feeling of confidence from my initial phone call with him all the way to the end of a settlement in my favor.Mr. Lazarz brought an instant feeling of confidence from my initial phone call with him all the way to the end of a settlement in my favor. My feeling of loss was completely turned around by Mr. Lazarz knowledge and understanding of the law, circumstances and experience in my particular situation. I would highly recommend Mr. Lazarz and his team to anyone in need of his services.

He’s an excellent lawyer who knows the law and not afraid of bullies.Mark Lazarz took my case when I was faced with a slew of issues from my employer. I needed to act fast and did not know how to proceed. Mark listened to every detail of the situation and guided me every step of the way. He negotiated a severance agreement for me and did a fantastic job. Little did I know I would need him again due to a breach of contract on that agreement. He was there and prevailed again. He’s an excellent lawyer who knows the law and is not afraid of bullies. Needing an employment lawyer is not something I thought I’d ever need, but I’m sure glad I found Mark!

Mark Lazarz at Shellist Lazarz Slobin provided me with unparalleled professional representation against a formidable employer.Simply said, Mark Lazarz at Shellist Lazarz Slobin provided me with unparalleled professional representation against a formidable employer that discriminated against me. While the employment discrimination against me was clearly evident, my employment contract with my employer made the case difficult to pursue. Not only did Mark Lazarz take the class, but over 18 months he skillfully and effectively rebutted a series of heavy handed responses from my employer and resolutely pursued justice in my behalf. He ultimately prevailed, and obtained for me a substantial monetary settlement. If you find yourself in an abusive and discriminatory employment situation, you cannot do better than Mark Lazarz and his extraordinary team.

The moment Voir Dire began, you could tell all potential jurors liked (Todd), the judge liked him, and opposing counsel hated themselves because they couldn’t help but like him.
Shellist Lazarz Slobin LLP represented myself and four other coworkers in an employment law related matter that began late in 2015. I cannot speak highly enough about Mr. Slobin, the firm and their assistant Andrea Willingham. What you need to know about Todd is that his skills complement the jury setting quite well. The highlight of our three-day federal court affair was watching Todd cross a high level executive. For context, the gentleman was known within our company as being a "cleaner." Someone who could be brought in when opinions needed to be swayed. After 3 hours on the stand, and some very clever questioning from our attorney, the executive walked away with a thousand-mile stare...and we walked away with a verdict in our favor.

With Todd, you always feel that he is your personal advocate.Todd Slobin was my employment attorney many years ago, when he successfully negotiated a settlement for me when I was wrongly terminated. I have given his name to at least a dozen of my friends over the years; several of them have become his clients and have been very happy with their results as well. I have had other experiences with other attorneys, where I felt my best interest was not their main concern. With Todd, you always feel that he is your personal advocate -- he's using every tool at his disposal to ensure the case is resolved to your satisfaction. He is a true professional and a lovely guy to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone in the state of Texas who needs this type of legal work.

Todd Slobin is an outstanding attorney and I am glad I had him in my corner fighting for me.Todd Slobin is an outstanding attorney and I am glad I had him in my corner fighting for me. When I contacted him about my potential lawsuit he walked me through a game plan, from the start to finish, and did a great job in communicating this to me. He bestows all the excellent qualities that an attorney should embody plus he showed care and compassion that I think many attorneys lack. I thoroughly enjoyed having him as my attorney and now I consider him a friend.

I believe that Todd (and his entire firm) values ethics and common decency.
Todd was incredible to work with. This was my first time being involved in a lawsuit, and Todd was consistently patient with me while explaining everything in layman's terms. He made me feel confident in my own ability to testify. More importantly, I was confident in his abilities in the courtroom, and man oh man did he deliver. What's most important to me is that he and I were aligned and very focused on the moral implications of this case and how they may affect the community at large. I believe that Todd (and his entire firm) values ethics and common decency, and for these reasons there is no doubt that I would hire him again.

Todd negotiated a significant severance package including benefits for my entire family.Todd is by far the best of the best. I scrambled to find representation after being terminated without a cause at 30-weeks pregnant. Without a doubt, representation was necessary due to the unjust circumstances of my termination. Todd took care of my family. He counseled me and handled the entire process with speed, grace and determination. Without litigation, Todd negotiated a significant severance package including benefits for my entire family. He took very good care of my family and I during a very difficult time. I am so thankful for his guidance and deliverables.

Marty was ready, willing and able to take the fight to the courtroom if required.Mr. Shellist was on my list of attorneys to interview in an employment / racial discrimination dispute. His knowledge of the issues, reputation and clear and concise communication style was key to my selecting him to represent me. Another factor in my selection was that I felt comfortable with him at the very beginning of our communications. He was able to cut to the heart of the issue, had passion about what we were fighting for, and kept me on track when things got frustrating. Although our case was settled through a successful mediation, Marty was ready, willing and able to take the fight to the courtroom if required. He assured me that if the settlement was not to my liking we could walk. I am 100% satisfied with my selection of Marty, and recommend him without hesitation.
