    Worked directly with Katie Debski to review an employment agreement offer, and couldn’t recommend her enough. She consistently went above and beyond what was expected, and was extremely thorough from start to finish. Katie was very easy to talk to and patiently answered any and all questions that I had. What also impressed me was the attention they gave to my offer, with Katie Bain also taking a look at it to make sure every last detail was in my best interest. With their help I was able to negotiate and agree to the deal that I wanted.

    I went to Bain Mazza and Debski when I was at the lowest moment in my life with a complex employment matter. From the day one the whole team has been extremely helpful, polite and upfront. They kept me in the loop every step of the way, explained everything really well and diligently worked with me in representing me. Katie Bain was my point of contact but the whole team was involved. Despite the fact that how hard and stressful the situation was for me these ladies made the process pretty painless. I am glad I chose them and I will highly recommend them to whomever is in the need of a great lawyer in employment matters…

  • Dwight H.

    My review is based on a complex legal matter that is rarely decided in the plaintiff’s favor: age discrimination. In my case, my former employer also decided to go to trial rather than settle. The entire ordeal lasted over two years. That we won the case was due almost entirely to the determination, skill, and teamwork of Laura Mazza and the two Katies, Katie Bain and Katie Debski…Should you have a case taken on by this firm, and should that case end up at trial, know that you will be represented by a team that works incredibly well together, each contributing expertise, and each absolutely committed to obtaining a positive result…

  • James R.

    “The attorneys at Landman & Mazza were not only professional and efficient in getting me the wrongful termination settlement I deserved, but also gave me support and personal attention that made my experience so much less stressful during such a difficult time.”

  • Karry A.

    “Laura, I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me. Everything was handled quickly, professionally and to my complete satisfaction! I would encourage anybody with employment issues to call Laura & Katie. I was scared at first to think about what I was doing, but they were friendly and made me feel at ease instantly!! Thank you so much!!”

  • Mark

    “I had some problems I needed legal help with in regard to a former employer and Katie was amazing! I have never needed legal help before but she came to my rescue when others wouldn’t. AND, to a successful outcome. I cannot recommend Katie Landman high enough. I would definitely seek her help again although, I hope I don’t need it. But, it’s good to know an honest and brilliant lawyer like Kathryn Landman!”

  • Elli S.

    “I recommend using Landman and Mazza hands down. I had a bad experience that I needed legal advice on. I called Katie and Laura and they were immediately available to help me. I came to their offices and I felt like I was chatting with two old friends, rather than two lawyers. They listened to my story and gave me legal advice that made sense not just from the legal perspective but that was also best for me personally. They helped me draft an email I needed to send and spent a ton of time walking me through my options and brainstorming what might be best. Their legal expertise was very strong and I felt like I was in very good hands. What made it so different from any other legal experience I have had is just how comfortable and friendly they were. If you are dealing with any type of legal issue, but especially those that are deeply hurtful, personal or difficult to talk about, Laura and Katie are right for you!”

  • Ethan D.

    “I retained Katie Landman to review my employment contract to ensure that my rights were protected. She was highly professional. Her advice was extremely practical and helpful. I would encourage anyone dealing with employment contract issues to consult Landman & Mazza.”

  • Mike D.

    “The attorneys at Landman & Mazza were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were not only patient with my myriad of inquiries but also proved to know the answer to almost every one. Their level of detail and organization also helped keep a very stressful process manageable. I found the attorneys to be extremely personable as well as knowledgeable. I had the feeling that they genuinely cared about me and my case. They were also very easy to talk with and not intimidating like other lawyers I have worked with. Landman & Mazza would definitely be my first choice in the future.”

  • Kate M.

    “I found that Laura Mazza, the attorney working on my case, listened attentively, was honest and clear in her assessments, and was easily accessible. She provided me with essential information each step of the way. Her composure, preparedness, and knowledge in and out of court eased any disquiet that I felt. She went above and beyond in her duties, and I highly recommend her firm to others.”

  • Justin G.

    “Katie Landman is an attorney who truly cares about her clients. Her firm agreed to represent me (after several other attorneys had turned me away). She listened with sympathy and worked hard to ensure that I was satisfied with the outcome. My case was handled in a professional, timely manner and at a reasonable cost. I would recommend her firm’s services to anyone who needs legal assistance.”

  • Jodi H.

    “I would like to thank Katie for her wonderful, professional help with a recent matter concerning a former employer. The situation was not pleasant, as I found a former employer to be unethical and shady when handling employee work rights and matters. However, Katie did a fantastic job in handling this employer and their attorney. I am very impressed with Katie and I would highly recommend her for employee-employer labor disputes.”

  • Monique S.

    “I recently had a horrible situation which I needed a powerhouse attorney to help me with. I met with Katie Landman and she instantly made me feel as if my life wasn’t falling apart. She took me through step by step in how we were going to go about handling the situation, and while she was fierce and strong, she also was delicate with my feelings and didn’t push me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I owe her so much! If you are looking for an attorney that will do what it takes to help you, then Katie’s it! Thank you so much Katie, you saved me!”

  • Brian G.

    “I had a medical condition that kept me from work for 4 months…I was trying to work out an “amicable separation” from the job… I called the office of Kathryn S. Landman and Laura M. Mazza to explain my situation. Right away I could tell that they understood my dilemma… At the consultation (which was FREE) the two ladies laid out all of my possible options and gave me prices for what I would be charged for each option. If I had to take my employer to court they were willing to take my case on a contingency plan meaning that if I didn’t win, then I wouldn’t have to pay… I left their offices with a full understanding of what would be in my best interest and an anxiety level 100 times less than before I went in to see them. Total peace of mind. I knew that I was in good hands and that this would not be the end of the world. Even after the dispute Kathryn Landman and Laura Mazza continued to check up on me to make sure that I was pleased with how things turned out and how I was doing. Not only are they great at their jobs but they let you know that they really DO care. Unheard of in todays’ world.”

  • Greg E.

    “I’ve met with a few attorneys before finding Laura Mazza and Katie Landman. Most of them would lose interest when they realized that my case wasn’t a sure winner because the case spanned over many years, and involved a government entity. Most of my contact was with Laura. She was calm, patient and extremely attentive to details and responsive to my questions. Katie provided many objective clarifications to my complex case. They are both absolutely top notch and wonderful to work with. Though the case settled at the last minute, Laura and Katie were completely prepared to start the trial. I’m very thankful that I found Landman & Mazza. I will continue to recommend Landman & Mazza to anyone who needs an employment attorney.”

  • Ruth

    “My case came to Katie’s firm suddenly as my previous attorney closed her practice quickly due to serious health issues. But in spite of this, Katie astounded me with the way she was totally on top of the details and key issues of my case in a very short while. She knew facts that even I had forgotten and gave me a sense of confidence that was immediate – especially for the discovery interview sessions with the opponents’ attorney. Her feedback was appropriate and very useful. Furthermore, her intuition was flawless as to the actions she anticipated from the other side. Her judgment was crucial in obtaining a favorable settlement for me and her negotiating skills were key in making it happen promptly. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to anyone pursuing an employment or any other type of civil case.”

  • Lorena L.

    “I talked to Katie Landman regarding a legal matter and she was superb. She returned my calls promptly and clearly communicated my options and answered my questions. A+ attorney, would not hesitate to recommend.”

  • Stephen K.

    “Laura Mazza was very prompt and responsive – she called me within hours of submitting my information for a phone consultation. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, she is very forthright with her advise. Laura spent a long time with my wife and me explaining the EDD appeal process and whether or not I actually had a wrongful termination case. Although her answers were not what I wanted to hear, her information was needed to help me decide how to proceed. She also reviewed my EDD appeal letter and revised it more strongly than I could have. I want to settle my issue soon, but hope she will represent me if necessary.”

  • J.L.

    “I recently talked with Laura Mazza regarding some questions I had about contract law. I was able to set up a phone consultation within a day. She was friendly and patient and provided helpful and comprehensive advice regarding all of my questions. I would definitely go back to her for future legal matters, and would recommend her to my friends.”

  • Clarissa R.

    “I attended one of Landman & Mazza’s lectures on Employee Rights in the Workplace in November 2011. They provided me with a lot of really helpful information and answered all of my questions. If I had an employment issue I would definitely contact them. Not only are they knowledgeable about the law, but they are also friendly and approachable.”

  • Stephen Jaffe, Esq.

    “Ms. Landman is a smart, hardworking and savvy lawyer with wisdom and judgment beyond her years of practice. I strongly endorse her.”

  • Sara Peters, Esq.

    “I have worked side-by-side on a number of projects as Co-Directors of Attorneys Bettering the Community with Katie and Laura. I’ve seen Katie’s work ethic, leadership skills, and strength of character. She is not the type of person to back down from a daunting task. I am glad I don’t have to face her on the opposite side of my cases! I endorse her without any reservation. Laura Mazza is also a confident, poised, and brilliant attorney, who happens to be a great person too…. She is tireless on behalf of the homeless and underprivileged. I’ve seen her make it out to volunteer events even while preparing for (and subsequently winning) a jury trial. Her track record speaks for itself. I strongly endorse her to anyone seeking a top notch employment lawyer.”

  • Blair Walsh, Esq.

    “Laura and I first met as summer clerks working at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy in our second year of law school. From the start, I was impressed with her work ethic, professionalism and ability to work well with others in any situation. Since then, I have had the pleasure of seeing her at various seminars and other events in the legal community and have found her to be one of the most well-spoken, cultured and knowledgeable young attorneys in the Bay Area. I hope to have the pleasure of working with her on future matters and look forward to seeing the success of her new firm, Landman & Mazza.”

  • Spencer Pahlke, Esq.

    “I practice law in San Francisco, and know of both Ms. Landman’s and Ms. Mazza’s work. I consider them to be top-notch attorneys, and give them my highest recommendation.”

  • Eric R. Gruber, Esq.

    “I have known the attorneys at Landman & Mazza for six years and I highly recommend their firm to anyone with an employment law issue. Katie and Laura are both extremely knowledgeable in the employment law field, as well as organized and meticulous. They work hard to obtain justice for their clients.”

  • Alice Georgitso

    I contacted Bain Mazza & Debski LLP regarding employment and disability rights as an employee working for a small company. From the moment I contacted Bain Mazza & Debski LLP, until a resolution was reached, I was beyond satisfied with their work. Although I primarily worked with Kathryn Bain, I knew I had a highly experienced, well-organized and dedicated team supporting me. It was quickly apparent that this law firm is comprised of a group of professionals who love what they do and truly want to help people.

    Ms. Bain was knowledgeable and exceedingly efficient. She quickly gained my trust and reached an ideal resolution between my employer and me. Out of the many attorneys there are to choose from, I am grateful that I found someone who listened to me and worked with me to ensure she was fighting for what was in my best interest. I am forever grateful for Ms. Bain’s time and I would recommend her, along with the entire team of Bain Mazza & Debski LLP, to anyone in need of not only a great attorney, but also a great team!

  • Cassie Ayeni

    I was hoping to make it through life without filing a lawsuit. But I knew was wronged. And I knew if I didn’t stand up, it could happen to another honest physician. I did my research. I was only going to hire the best law firm. If they passed on my case, I would’ve let it go. They accepted my case and I couldn’t be happier. I worked directly with Laura Mazza but benefited from the expertise of Katie Bain and Katie Debski as their firm functions well with a team approach. My case was complex and unique and we were up against a formidable opponent (a large city). But with Laura leading the charge, we reached a favorable settlement. Honest. Hard working. Professional. I highly recommend Bain Mazza
