Hear It From Our Clients

“I hired Tim and Greg of Ceartas Legal to represent me after being fired from my job after almost 17 years of employment. At first, I was unsure of my rights, and spoke to several attorneys about possibly taking on my case. After talking to Tim and Greg, it was very clear that they were the best fit for me. They listened carefully to my circumstances and reassured me that they believed I had been wronged and was entitled to pursue a case against my former employer. Tim & Greg took time to explain the law, painstakingly gathered and organized all the details and all the time acted with compassion and empathy. They kept me and my wife informed at every step of the way, clearly outlining and advising us of our options. The case ended in my favor with the defendant settling, and for more than originally anticipated thanks to Tim & Greg’s expertise and hard work. But most importantly, I felt vindicated. I am extremely grateful that I had such a dedicated, knowledgeable and caring team in my corner, supporting me through a difficult time. I would highly recommend them to anyone else who finds in need of an employment lawyer.”

“I retained Ceartas Legal because I was discriminated against and retaliated against after 35 years of dedicated employment by my employer, who happened to be one of the most famous and well-respected employers in all of Del Mar. It was apparent from the start my employer was going to fight me with everything it had and I realized I could not prevail without a professional and aggressive firm looking out for my interests. The entire staff at Ceartas Legal was helpful in explaining the legal process every step of the way. The case went to trial and the result was a positive one for me and my family. Though the process was lengthy and draining, Mr. Klawitter and Mr. Keegan did not waiver in their commitment to my case. I have recommended Ceartas Legal to colleagues in need of their expertise and will continue to do so.” — Michele


Greg Klawitter and Tim Keegan represented me in a challenging and sensitive civil matter, on behalf of Ceartas Legal. I had been sexually harassed and stalked at work, and when I reported it to my employer, I was retaliated against and fired. Greg and Tim accepted my case and quickly moved into action, like a force of nature. During the course of that year, they generously gave their time, with unrelenting resolve, preparation and focus. Every detail of my case was managed with legal expertise, professionalism, confidence, integrity, compassion and transparency. They were fierce advocates for me. Their commitment and attention to the case, and consistent communication was exceptional.

In the end, we won, and the results speak volumes of their work and dedication. The lawsuit was arduous, stressful, yet one of the most empowering, financially rewarding experiences of my life, due largely to my representation. I greatly respect and admire Greg and Tim, and I would recommend them without reservation. I am immensely grateful for their impeccable work and ongoing client advocacy!” — Barbara


Tim and Greg are exceptionally talented attorneys and a pleasure to work with. We were referred to them by a trusted friend when my husband was terminated three weeks before Christmas, without warning or severance, the week after requesting an intermittent FMLA to attend my cancer treatments. Despite my husband’s employer’s repeated assurances that they would accommodate his support of me for my cancer treatment, the company fired my husband almost immediately after he filed the FMLA request. This was devastating for us. The company had moved us 400 miles away from all of our friends, family and my doctors. Three months after our move we were in a home we couldn’t afford, with no job or contacts for new job prospects. Tim and Greg took our case to arbitration and won, not only compensatory damages, but punitive and emotional distress damages as well (a total award of $2.2 million). Their preparation and execution of our case was flawless — leading the judge to find the employer acted in a shameful and malicious manner in violation of the law. We felt vindicated and the substantial judgement has allowed us to put our lives back together. We are forever grateful to Tim, Greg and their team.” — Heidi & Kurt


I had never been involved in a lawsuit in my life, this was also the first time I had been fired from a job. This time was very stressful for myself and my family but I knew I had to take a stand. I’m so thankful I found Greg and his team to represent myself. He was so prompt in answering every email and phone call, he always helped calm my nerves and educated me on the entire process. I was told by my peers that this process could take years, and good luck ever actually seeing a paycheck if you win. I trusted Greg and not only did we settle out of court but for an amount that far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Greg and his team and am blessed he represented my case.” — Sheena


Mr. Klawitter, Mr. Keegan and staff offered hope to me after years of suffering from harassment, discrimination and retaliation during my dedicated twenty plus year employment with a Fortune 200 company. When I first met with them I immediately felt I was in good hands, impressed by both their knowledge and attention to detail, regarding the journey I was about to embark upon. Throughout the lengthy negotiation process, I became equally appreciative of their sensitivity, care and concern regarding the impact of the unavoidable stress of the process on my well-being. Their behavior in this regard is evidence that they consistently put their clients’ needs first. They were always readily available as well as good communicators, carefully explaining each step and making me feel that I was their top priority despite their very busy schedules. Mr. Klawitter and team were honest, candid and realistic establishing my expectations regarding a very complex case. My family and I are grateful to them and exceedingly happy with the outcome of my situation. Mr. Klawitter and team are passionate about what they do. They believe in their clients and are willing to fight tirelessly for them. I would highly recommend Ceartas Legal to anyone in need of their knowledge, skill and compassion should they find themselves in a difficult employment situation.” — Susan
