  • I could not have been more pleased with the firm or our result.
    From the first meeting with Michelle Douglass and Philip Burnham, I knew they were the skilled lawyers I needed. After a bad employment experience, I felt betrayed and hurt but Michelle, Phil, paralegal Maria, and the rest of the staff helped me gain the confidence and stamina to push back and win my case. They came highly recommended, are very professional, and extremely good at what they do. I could not have been more pleased with the firm or our result.

  • Both Michelle and Phil made me feel like I was a family member they were representing.
    This testimonial will be the most honest you have ever read. My journey is incredible..my case was actually dismissed in summary judgment due to fact I had incompetent counsel previously. Michelle came on board and actually got summary judgment reversed...that RARELY happens....she got a judge to overturn his own decision and saved my case...this case meant the world to me and my family...anybody involved in a bad employment situation knows just how personal these cases are and how much it means to have your voice heard. Michelle and her associate Phillip Burnham literally worked side by side with me for many weeks as we prepared for trial. They listened and valued my opinion throughout and made me feel a part of this whole process. To be honest, having that great relationship and communication helped us win in trial. Trial isn't easy and is very stressful. Both Michelle and Phil made me feel like I was a family member they were representing. Picking your attorney is the most important aspect of your case and don't always assume you will settle your case. Your case may go to trial and believe me you will need Michelle and Phil. They battled in that courtroom for weeks and got me and my family justice.  I will be forever grateful and I am the perfect example if you don't choose your counsel correctly it will lose your case. My case was dismissed and yet they found a way to save it and get me the justice that I waited 5 years to see. I was allowed to tell a jury my story and have my voice heard. They are part of my family now!

  • After meeting Michelle, she gave me the confidence I needed to fight for what I deserved.

    When I first met Michelle, I had so many fears about filing a lawsuit. I was afraid of actually filing against Atlantic City Board of Education simply because what I had gone through was torture. I was definitely afraid they would attack me, lie about me and reduce me to tears as they always had. After meeting Michelle, she gave me the confidence I needed to fight for what I deserved. Michelle was kind and always there to answer any crazy questions! She made sure that I was informed every step of the way. Michelle was so knowledgeable and professional. Of course, some of my fears came to be but Michelle kept me going and never let me give up! I was in complete depression for years and I needed someone as caring and tough on me when things were just unbearable. The best part of dealing with My Rights Lawyers was Michelle Douglass herself. The professionalism I experienced with much of the firm was exceptional. Joe and Alexis always kept me informed and were always willing to answer questions or pass them on to Michelle. The firm as a whole was amazing! There is NO way I wouldn't recommend My Right's Lawyers to anyone I know! This would be the first and only recommendation I would make with complete confidence they would be treated professionally and gracefully. There will never be enough words to explain what Michelle and My Right's Lawyers have done for my life. They will always hold a special place in my life!

  • I never knew compassion, value and honesty could exist in an attorney until I met Philip.
    I'm hoping there's enough space to comment on my experience with Philip as he assisted me on a very personal matter... I was recommended by two different sources, so I hoped & prayed this would be my guy. As fate would have it, I couldn't have been more ecstatic with my experience. Philip possesses an energy level beyond imagination, which was demonstrated repeatedly & consistently. I experienced it through his knowledge of the law & attention to detail entirely whether it was emails, calls, texting even facebook. I never knew compassion, value and honesty could exist in an attorney until I met Philip. He was truthful every step of the way whether the scenario was positive or negative. Let me simply state that I was a prime client that any attorney would have turned away. Philip stood by me with utmost heart, soul & dedication to ensure the job got done, in the short amount of time frame that we had to work with. I will be eternally grateful to him and speaking of him highly to all my friends. If your looking for 200%, Philip S Burnham is your guy. Thank You Phil :-)

  • Ms. Douglass, I got a feeling of genuine concern, unlike that of the prior attorneys I had spoken to.

    I first met attorney Michelle Douglass in late fall of 2003. I had been to numerous attorneys trying to find one that was not only capable, but willing to take on such a challenge. When I presented my case to Ms. Douglass, I was sure it was going to be another dead end as had been the outcome with all of the other attorneys that I had consulted with. As I spoke to Ms. Douglass, I got a feeling of genuine concern, unlike that of the prior attorneys I had spoken to.  I say that because all of the previous attorneys shuddered at dealing with my particular case. They were not up to the challenge that would surely ensue.  My case was one of which involved taking on some very strong adversaries, local government. I knew nothing of how such a case would be handled or presented. I only knew that I needed help and I needed a strong and knowledgeable attorney who would fight for my rights. Ms. Douglass, I soon came to learn was a formidable force, one to be recognized.  Her vast knowledge and skill was soon to become evident. Over time I saw her talents unfold as my case progressed through the natural channels of the law. She never faltered her course always adhering to her principals with the utmost integrity.  I knew without a doubt that I had the very best representing me. Ms. Douglass held steadfast throughout and led us to victory. Because of Ms. Douglass’ character and superior representation, you would be hard pressed to find another attorney with the skill and knowledge that she possesses. I’m very grateful that Ms. Douglass was and is available for people such as myself. Ms. Douglass it has been my pleasure to have met you and worked with you on my case for that I will be forever grateful.

  • I was helped by Michelle every step of the way, with guidance and answers. She is remarkable and I love her.
    My name is Joanne Craven. I have been a long time client of the firm and have become a personal friend with Michelle Douglass as a result. Just recently, they helped me through a very difficult time. I was involved in an automobile accident that ruined my life. It caused me to lose my job. Any income to pay my bills and sustain my life was lost. Michelle Douglass immediately took over and was able to get the automobile accident case settled with a significant monetary compensation. They also filed for Social Security Disability benefits on my behalf due to my back and knee injuries. The SSA initially denied my claim, but with the skill and persistence of Michelle Douglass, within months, the SSA reversed their initial Decision and I have been awarded permanent disability and now receive SSDI benefits for life. I am grateful to the firm and I am proud to call them my friend. I highly recommend Michelle Douglass as I was helped by Michelle every step of the way, with guidance and answers. She is remarkable and I love her. Thank you.

  • From the moment Ms. Douglass agreed to represent me I knew that she always had my best interest at heart.
    Until my retirement, in December of 2005, I had been a police officer for twenty-nine years. Throughout my career, I crossed paths with countless attorneys on both sides of the aisle. From the moment Ms. Douglass agreed to represent me I knew that she always had my best interest at heart. I have never met anyone who exhibits a greater degree of professionalism that Ms. Douglass does on a daily basis. If Ms.Douglass is your attorney you have someone who knows the law and will stand beside you through thick and thin. I not only admire and respect her abilities, but I have also come to know her personally and am very proud to call her my friend.

  • I consider Michelle my friend and recommend her to anyone for any employment or civil rights matter.

    Michelle Douglass has represented me for two employment related matters. The last case I was wrongfully terminated from employment after I became a whistle blower exposing illegal practices by my former employer. The defense firm, a huge North Jersey firm tried to beat us down with motions and delay tactics. We were not deterred. Michelle fought harder and better than the big North Jersey firm for which I am grateful. I am pleased to say that my husband and I have used the settlement proceeds to happily retire.I consider Michelle my friend and recommend her to anyone for any employment or civil rights matter.
