All of the following client testimonials come from Mr. Porter's actual clients, but their names have been changed to protect them from overzealous and ill-motivated employers.

"Facing wrongful termination by Management combined with violation of the FMLA and Disability Act, David Porter was able to identify and resolve the situation quickly." He aggressively put the management and HR department on notice and as a result, I was able to remain employed and receive my full benefits. I can never thank him enough for his efforts.

- Caitlin, Maintenance Supervisor (preventing termination)

From the first moment I met David in his office, I knew I had met the right attorney for my case. After spending money and time on another attorney and getting nothing to show for it, David's commitment and attention to details while handling my case was outstanding. His strong dedication, professionalism, expertise and negotiation skills helped me to win my case. David's tenacity, genuine concern for my cause, and high integrity reassured me and gave me a peace of mind and confidence that I would win my case. I will recommend or refer him to any of my friends at any time!

- Elaine, Regional Coordinator (race and national origin litigation)

I sought David's help in addressing a labor dispute with my employer. Never having been in such a position and struggling under the weight of the attack, I found myself personally and professionally overwhelmed. David insulated me from the situation, providing support during an emotionally charged time and ultimately negotiating a resolution to my advantage. David handled this matter with integrity, dedication and care. I HIGHLY recommend David to anyone requiring services of this type.

- Cara, Project Manager (severance)

David Porter did an excellent job handling my case. He provided a peace of mind for me and my family. I highly recommend him as an attorney of law.

- Nathan, Toll Collector (Appeal to IDES Board of Review)

After finding myself in a terrible position with a former employer to whom my fate was at their mercy, David Porter stepped in and negotiated a settlement plan that not only kept me out of court, but also prevented any negative references or information being leaked out to possibly hinder my future growth as a professional.

- Mike, Clerk (preventing potential criminal allegations against client)

Mr. Porter's legal advice on my FMLA lawsuit was invaluable, and contributed to the successful settlement resolution of the case.

- Doris, attorney (FMLA Federal litigation)

David Porter was referred to me by a close personal friend in my time of need. David's professional commitment to my unemployment benefits case/claim put me at ease from the very start. David spent one on one time with me explaining the entire legal process which fortunately resulted in the most positive out come for my individual case/claim. I recommend David Porter to anyone seeking legal representation regarding unemployment benefits claims. My case/claim was handled thoroughly with constant updates from David, his dedication is unmatched. Thanks again David, job well done!!

- Joseph, Security Officer (Unemployment Hearing)

I can't thank you enough for dealing with the bureaucracy of the Indiana and Illinois unemployment offices. Their response to my individual communications seemed to be the default answer of "No". With your help and persistence you were able to cut through the red tape and win my Trade Adjustment Assistance, allowing me to pursue my Master's of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. It is a good feeling to know I can call on such a great resource in trying times.

- Marc, laid-off worker and now a student (Trade Adjustment Assistance Act)

I found David Porter's representation of me to be both professional and compassionate. He did a solid job of explaining my legal options and provided me with real world examples of how labor/employment law works. His support and advocacy helped me to get through a very difficult time in my professional life. I would without hesitation highly recommend him to a friend in need of a seasoned practitioner.

- Jack, Help Desk Clerk (severance)

David Porter was able to quickly understand my unfortunate situation and obtain a fair settlement on my behalf. My employer seemed to be giving me the run around throughout an awkward situation that they created, but after hiring Mr. Porter to represent me, I received significantly enhanced employer cooperation and payment in full within a reasonable amount of time. I found Mr. Porter to be an open, honest and compassionate individual, and I would recommend him to anyone seeking highly qualified legal representation.

- Max, Field Operations Manager (severance)
