Carolyn helped me with my unemployment appeal and she is absolutely incredible! She walked me through what to expect through the entire process and advised me on my situation and the questions to expect. The appeal was a total success and I couldn’t have done it without her! Her expertise was invaluable, and she was such a pleasure to work with!! The only thing I would have done differently is to have reached out to the Workplace Justice Law Group when I first applied for unemployment. Thank you Carolyn!,

I was referred to Jill from a trusted friend and I am so glad I did. I was in shock and very upset when I first reached out to her and she took the time to listen to me as I described the situation and expressed my concerns. She was compassionate and answered all my questions but most importantly, guided me through the process effectively. She always answered my questions in a timely manner and her pricing structure was clear and fair. I ended up in the best situation possible and I can’t thank her enough.

I will definitely refer her to anyone I know who needs these type of services. Thank you!

Empathy and expertise

I reached out to Carolyn after being discharged by my now former employer to understand what my rights (if any) were, how I should approach the severance agreement presented to me, and how to file for unemployment benefits in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. During my initial consultation, Carolyn was thorough and transparent about the process; she showcased her expertise right out of the gate. She is up-to-date and well-versed in Massachusetts employment law. I proceeded to hire Carolyn to negotiate the terms of the severance agreement to be more mutually beneficially and provide guidance on filing for unemployment benefits. I'm grateful for her support during this particularly vulnerable time in my life and I would recommend her to anyone else seeking similar assistance.

Attorney Jill Havens is Everything an Excellent attorney should and needs to be.
Attorney Havens advised me on my case, defended me with grace and the utmost professionalism. She has a calming demeanor and took on three entitled doctors for me.
Thank you Jill
I hope everyone who needs legal help for employment, unemployment protection, will please reach out to her.

After seeking legal advice from two lawyers, I decided to work with Carolyn Hunt to assist me with a denied claim for unemployment benefits through the Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA). Carolyn is highly knowledgeable, confident, transparent, and fair about her fees. Her assistance and expertise were crucial in overturning the DUA's decision in my favor. Carolyn's guidance made me feel well-prepared and confident during the two hearings. I am grateful for Carolyn's services and would not hesitate to recommend her to future clients.

After researching and consulting with various lawyers, I chose to proceed with Jill. She is exceptionally skilled, transparent about her fees, and provided invaluable support throughout two hearings. With Jill's guidance, I felt well-prepared during the hearings. It was more of a collaborative effort with Jill, as she advised, offered options, and coached me through the entire process. In the end, the decision favored me, thanks to Jill's expertise. I wholeheartedly endorse Jill's services!

I worked with Carolyn Hunt over the past few months. I found Carolyn to always be thoughtful, well-informed, supportive and helpful. She was readily available and prepared for our conversations. Her guidance was essential to navigating through a confusing and complicated workplace situation. Carolyn's experience and suggestions were critical in resolving the issue. It is no exaggeration to say I would not have been able get through the process as I did without her help and work on my behalf.
Carolyn is a gifted listener, reads between the lines, has a high level of emotional intelligence, an appropriate sense of humor, balances the big picture with the tactical and is, in my view, real. I hope I never have a need to work with Carolyn again, but should I, she would be the first person I would reach out to.

The team was excellent! Carolyn Hunt was able to resolve a 2-months issue I had with the DUA, within literally 48 hours. Thank you again!

Professional and Effective Advocacy

Carolyn and her team provided helpful, timely, and effective advice to assist in resolving my application with the MA Department of Unemployment assistance that had been denied due to inaccurate wage data to validate my claim. Carolyn's advice helped expedite my Appeal and be granted eligibility for unemployment assistance.
Having been suddenly and unexpectedly laid off from my employer, the difficulty and frustration of navigating the unemployment process was alleviated by Carolyn's care and decisive actions. I highly recommend Carolyn Hunt!

I had a difficult unemployment appeal case and Jill helped me not only navigate the process but successfully win my appeal. She was readily available, quick to respond to any questions and always kind and reassuring. I absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs an advocate when dealing with any and all work place issues.

I cannot recommend Jill highly enough. She doesn’t just win, she walks you through the process with kindness, compassion, and perspicacity, eliciting the right information at the right time. She makes me feel heard - conveying her empathy, while ensuring we make good use of time and she gets the information she needs. I know that when I work with Jill, she has me covered.”

"Finding yourself in the overwhelming position of needing workplace representation can be daunting. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend contacting Atty. Hunt. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but her ability to anticipate and address any concerns that you may have helps to ease fears. Atty. Hunt is quick to reply to emails and very personable - so easy to talk to! Although she hears these cases all of the time, she has the innate ability to view the case through the eyes of her client, who often times have never been in this situation before."

"I was denied unemployment and now headed for an Appeal Hearing. I contacted Attorney Havens assistant ; She offered two levels of service. I initially met with Ms. Havens who adeptly dissected my case making clear to me the key points. Attorney Havens felt I could handle the hearing myself. I however opted to hire her to appear with me at the successful hearing appeal. Best money I’ve spent. Ms. Havens really knows her way around the hearing process. I only wish I had met with her before filing my slightly unusual unemployment claim. Attorney Havens has a nice way about her, a lot of integrity and is very skilled in this."

"I contacted Atty Havens' office when I had to appeal my unemployment denial. I was really confused and upset at the time, and was so pleasantly surprised (and relieved) when Jill Havens and her assistant were in touch so quickly after my initial contact with her office. Jill was an amazing asset and advocate. She is that great blend of trustworthy expertise and high-level interpersonal skills. She is also very responsive, thorough and has excellent communication skills. With Jill's help and advice, I won my appeal and, in so doing, got back my weekly income and my belief that there are some amazing professionals out there who truly believe in--and live out--their mission."

"I reached out to Carolyn Hunt with an issue regarding PUA and what seemed to be an error on their end. I had tried to solve things on my own but couldn't. get through the bureaucratic system. From the first call that I had with Carolyn, I could tell that she cared about my case and making sure that my case was heard and cleared. I am beyond appreciative to Carolyn and I believe that I would never had the outcome that I did without hiring her. It was worth the money to work with her, since she knows what she is doing and has effective resources to help her clients get the outcome they desire and deserve. I truly felt like I had someone on my side fighting for me and considering this was first time I had ever reached out to an attorney, it was huge to feel this way. I highly recommend hiring her if you have any workplace related issues. I'm forever grateful!"

Jill is a great advocate to have on your side: she is deeply knowledgeable, competent, and reliable. She was easy to reach, made herself available as much as possible, and answered any questions that I had. In addition, Jill really listens and her calm, guiding demeanor was a welcome resource. I am very grateful to Jill for her expertise and walking me through the experience, and I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone seeking assistance."

"Jill was recommended to me by a friend and thank goodness I took her advice. Jill was very knowledgeable and helped me to get a settlement from a very large organization that had terminated my employment. The whole situation was very stressful but Jill took over and explained everything in layman’s terms. She takes the time to explain every process and she’s been a Godsend. I can’t say enough good things about her. Trust me when I say you want her in your corner."

"I worked with attorney Jill on an unemployment claim. She was a fantastic person to work with and a very professional lawyer. I had called over 25 different law firms; Jill was the best person and everyone I spoke with. I can’t say enough good things about this amazing person. Highly recommend doing business and working with this understanding attorney."
"Miracle worker with the DUA"

"The Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) had made a mistake on my account and said I owed them a significant amount of money. I tried to resolve this myself by writing, calling and emailing the DUA to no avail. Finally after over 2 years of failed attempts I gave up trying to fix this myself. Fortunately, I was put in touch will Jill Havens. She and I spoke once and within a matter of days my case was cleared as her one letter to them cleared everything. I now have peace of mind without this false claim hanging over me! My only regret is waiting over 2 years to call Jill. I should have done so sooner."
"I'd recommend Jill to anybody!"

"I went to Jill feeling absolutely hopeless about my claim, and terrified with the $22,000 debt the state of MA was claiming I owed them after my determination being overturned. She not only got my determination and overpayment overturned, but I ended up getting another $10,000 that they owed me in pending payments from the year my claim was tied up. I had debt racked up from trying to survive without my payments and had no way of paying that money back if they ended up wanting it. Jill really saved me from a terrible situation and kept me calm throughout with her stern and informed personality. I just knew she had it under control when I first met with her, and I was right. I would recommend Jill to anybody who feels they have been wronged or feels they are owed money by their jobs or the department of unemployment, even if it feels hopeless, because if anybody can find a solution- it's Jill."
