Testimonials

Simon Mazzola transformed a frivolous labor law claim by two former employees into an opportunity to discover intellectual property stolen by those employees. I liked his work so much that I've used him since to plan for employee terminations and other human resources advice. He always works with an eye on both the budget and results. I recommend Simon for any labor law issues, whether you need a sanity check of your H.R. processes or counsel for labor law claims. - S.D., C.E.O.


I really appreciated Simon’s work to solve my case. At the beginning, I was scared about how to deal with the employee’s claims. He found solutions and fought back their arguments. He saved us time and a large amount of money. We are still in business because of his efforts. If we ever have another case (knock on wood we won’t), we will be back for his legal expertise. I have given his name other business owners and recommended they contact him. – Ferdinando Pietro Giovanni Ballare


Under Mr. Mazzola’s leadership and with his legal advice, our $1,300,000 construction project was successfully completed on time and under budget. Simon helped us negotiate the contracts with our architect and builder. He counseled our organization from the conceptual phase through the project’s completion, helping us understand the construction process and guiding us on important decisions. He was also instrumental in maintaining important relationships with our business partners, the San Francisco International Airport and the County of San Mateo. – Executive Director, Nonprofit Corporation


We were referred to Simon by a friend. We needed help in reviewing contracts for a construction job. Simon kindly reviewed our contracts and edited them. He gave us very good suggestions to use in negotiations. He had an essential role in choosing the right contractor for a construction job. He has been very accessible by email and phone and responded quickly when we needed urgent responses. We strongly recommend using his services. - Dr. F.


I want to describe my experience as an owner of a business with an employment case. When I received a demand letter from a former employee’s lawyer, I searched for my own lawyer. I met with a few, but they did not feel right, in fact they scared me. It is a difficult position to be in when an employee sues. I felt completely lost and disorientated.

Then I went to Simon Mazzola and he made me feel comfortable. He took my case and told me to go home and relax, everything would be fine. I left his office with a clear head. Thank God that I met Simon and followed his advice.

Simon resolved the case and I really admired the aggressive way he did so. He was always ready for a fight. His representation gave me back my peace of mind so I could get on with my life. – M.D.


Mr. Mazzola’s legal expertise in dealing with personnel issues, negotiating and maintaining collective bargaining agreements, and general business issues has been invaluable to our organization over the past 10 years. - L. K.


I had the pleasure of working with Simon as a fellow Board member for several years. During our board tenure together, I found Simon to possess a great deal of professionalism and integrity. His approach is balanced, measured, and analytical and more importantly, he interprets the legalese into terms that lay folks can easily understand. Unlike many lawyers, Simon possesses the unique ability to be able to evaluate legal risk and assess those risks against the business objectives and goals of his clients, which is why I never hesitate to refer business to him when I have the opportunity. Simon is, without question, one of the most business savvy attorneys with whom I’ve worked.

Simon has helped me and my husband with employment issues over the past 2 years. His advice and guidance - legally and personally - were accurate, appropriate for the situations, and the key for us to handle our situations successfully. He will not shy away from telling you the pro's and con's and guiding you on what might be best for you personally besides the pure legal circumstances. We highly recommend Simon! - Stefanie Deuber
