“Kainen, Escalera & McHale represented us before a Connecticut Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO) hearing, and they are our sounding board for any employment law questions we may have. They helped us generate the CHRO response, prepared employees for the hearing, and represented us at the hearing. They always provide their services in a most professional and knowledgeable manner, yet are very down to earth and positive in their employee relations. Working with them is a real pleasure. I would not hesitate to recommend Kainen, Escalera & McHale as management employment law attorneys.”- Human Resources Director, Local Manufacturing Company
