I had the opportunity to work with Jeannette Vaccaro when I was negotiating a departure from my workplace. She used her vast experience to provide me with excellent advice as well as insights into each step along the way. She was able to help me ask the right questions and anticipate each outcome. Because of her consultation, I was able to negotiate a deal that exceeded my expectations. Throughout the entire process Jeannette showed extreme professionalism while maintaining expedient, thoughtful communication. I would highly recommend Jeannette Vaccaro for any employment and labor issue.

I felt extremely well represented by Jeannette. She not only understood the facts of my case well, but she also was able to "walk in my shoes" and comprehend, on an emotional level, the toll that my former workplace had exacted on me.

When you're faced with a national corporation's team of lawyers, Jeannette Vaccaro has the ability and determination to flesh out the facts as they pertain to the law. She was laser focused on the issues and relentless in her pursuit of justice for my case. She masterfully demonstrated the illegal discriminatory behavior and practices of a large corporation that resulted in a very favorable outcome.

If you've been wronged by an employer, I highly recommend Jeannette Vaccaro. Ms. Vaccaro handled my case with meticulous attention to detail, empathy, and thorough knowledge of my rights under California law. My case was against a startup that misclassified me as an independent worker and withheld wages and commissions. Ms. Vaccaro was relentless in arguing my case against the employer and its insurance company. Ms. Vaccaro successfully negotiated a mediation settlement that resulted in full compensation of wages and commissions that should have been paid in the first place.

I can't say enough good things about my experiences over several months working with Jeannette Vaccaro and her team. She is extremely bright, knowledgeable, compassionate, and truly listens to her clients, working WITH them, and not just FOR them. Ms. Vaccaro sets clear expectations and outlines the timelines various scenarios will take, fully and carefully prepares her clients for situations they may never have previously faced, and fights hard for her clients. She outlines clearly the pros and cons of taking various positions and/or actions and reviews them in detail with her client. She is kind, caring, compassionate and just plain nice! -- characteristics many people don't automatically associate with lawyers! I would definitely recommend Jeannette Vaccaro to anyone who needs a good employment lawyer. I would also seek her advice again if I ever needed employment law advice in the future.

If you have an employment issue, do not think twice about calling Jeannette Vaccaro. She is outstanding and will work tirelessly for you, as she did for me.
Jeannette is thorough and knowledgable, and at the same time is kind, understanding and compassionate. She helped me through a very difficult time and tackled every issue with complete efficiency and expertise. She kept me informed during the entire process and calmed my anxiety more times than I can recount. Her interaction with the Courts and Judge was spot-on and powerful; she didn't miss anything!

  •   Jeannette was extremely understanding, positive and helpful in my conversations with her. She is definitely one of the best lawyers in the area and she is highly regarded by many of my friends. She is an expert in employment law and severance negotiations and I cannot recommend her enough

      I was referred to Jeannette as the attorney I talked to said she was the best at severance negotiation. They were not joking. I've worked with other attorneys before and she is the best and nicest person I've dealt with. She knows exactly what she is doing and has tons of experience. I would recommend her to any and all of my friends and family if they needed employment law assistance.  5/5. Best attorney in SF bay area. If you want a winner on your side then stop looking any where else. Other law offices would send me to their receptionist who was unhelpful and made me fill out forms. Jeannette spoke to me directly and didn't give me any run arounds. She also knows other great attorneys so her references are solid! A1 Attorney. Thanks!!

      Jeannette helped me with a recent employment issue and was absolutely amazing to work with. Not only did she take my case that required a very short turnaround time, she did so with amazing precision and care. Every single step of the way I felt valued by her genuine concern for my well being. Jeannette advised me on all options available to me and also walked me through what she thought would be the best solution in my scenario. Her professionalism, tailored with a generous dose of human connection and empathy, makes her one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with - especially around a tremendously vulnerable and sensitive subject like employment law.

    Thank you, Jeannette! Would strongly recommend her to anyone going through any employment issues.

      I only had one phone conversation with Jeannette and a few emails exchanged. We ended up deciding not to move forward with my claim because it likely wouldn't be worth the money. I appreciated that she seemed to genuinely listen, care and understand my situation. She didn't rush our consultation.  She also was very candid and didn't try to bill me for something I didn't need. She was very thorough and left me feeling like I fully understood my options. I would absolutely recommend Jeannette and use her in the future.

      I spoke with Jeannette to help me approach negotiating the situation following a layoff that was being couched as a termination for cause...but with severance (weird, right?). Jeannette helped me present my situation to my former employer, focusing on those aspects of the termination that were problematic and emphasizing the need for them to properly compensate me for the abrupt (and problematic) nature of the termination.

    Over the course of about a week, Jeannette helped guide me to successfully negotiate a 2.5-fold increase in severance from the initial offer from my former employer. She was also great in helping me understand the process, how to approach it, and what I could expect - including a realistic assessment of how far we'd want to push the negotiation given the overall situation.

    I'd happily recommend Jeannette for employment situations, and would refer people personally to her to help with theirs.

      When I was referred to Jeannette, she actually spoke to me for about 20mins, helping analyze my situation. She was thorough, candid and knowledgeable. When she concluded there may not be enough in the situation to work with, she honestly told me that she did not want to take up a case if she didn't think she could get me a great result. Then she went on to share a couple detailed ideas of what I could try on my own. She did not bill me for this initial conversation, which I thought was very decent of her. While my situation did not warrant moving forward, I would definitely recommend reaching out to her to see if she can help you.

    thumb What's in a nam e.

      Jeannette has the perfect energy and attitude as an attorney.  One can hear that in her enthusiastic tone of voice when you are having a conversation with her.  She could not represent me because of short notice on my part.  She could've simply left it at that and hang up or refer me to another attorney but knowing that I was desperate, she pointed me to the right direction in doing the right research.  When I need an employment lawyer next time, I know who to go to exactly!  She is as good as one can get.
