What Others Say


Thought leader on any employment law topic

Thought leader on any employment law topic

Stuart Rudner continues to stand out as a thought leader on any employment law topic. Since becoming an owner manager himself of a boutique employment law firm, Stuart seems to have an even deeper understanding of what it is like to be an employer and has in my opinion become expert in advising owner-managers through issues that may arise in the employer-employee relationship.

I have worked with Stuart, and he has assisted me in providing strategic advice to my clients.

On top of being a leading Employment Lawyer, writer, HR professor and business owner, Stuart Rudner is a social media marketing expert and definitely worth “Following” and modeling.

Stuart is friendly, collegial and always responsive to any Employment Law question, using logic and experience to resolve complicated issues and providing practical advice. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Quality legal services and emotional support when needed

Working with Nadia Zaman and the Rudner Law team was a pleasure. Not only did Nadia explain my litigation and non-litigation options, but she also had my best interest in mind when advising on managing my employer and anticipating their next steps. I was happy to learn that litigation was not the only way to handle my workplace situation. Although I received guidance on the likelihood of my case succeeding at trial, I never felt I needed to take my problem to court. In addition to explaining my legal rights, Nadia helped me understand some employment law fundamentals that would help me make informed choices in other workplaces throughout my career. In addition to providing quality legal services and emotional support when I needed one, Nadia helped keep my budget in check. She advised me on the cost-saving ways to communicate with my legal team. Finally, I am thankful to Nadia Zaman and Rudner Law for addressing my case holistically and consistently keeping my legal issues, emotional needs and financial constraints at the forefront of their mind. 

A very experienced and talented lawyer
