Testimonials

BELOW IS A SAMPLE OF WHAT SOME OF OUR PAST CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT OUR FIRM AND WHY THEY RECOMMEND US TO THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY


“I contacted Rik Siro to help me with a discrimination suit I was seriously considering with my employer at the time. Rik and all of his team members were so understanding to my situation. They worked for months, weeks, days, hours, and minutes to get my case to a jury trial. Rik, his team, his secretaries, and all who are involved with this firm, treated me with kindness, answered any questions I had, helped me with paperwork that needed to be completed, and had a complete amount of knowledge.

They were outstanding in court and held the witnesses from my company accountable for all of their answers. It was astonishing to watch them ask questions and not stop till they got the answers they wanted. I was amazed at the ability they had to make even the calmest of witnesses, nervous and mad by the time they got off the stand. The case took a week to conclude with a verdict of GUILTY of discrimination!! I was totally impressed with Rik and his entire team and had total confidence in all of their decisions in my case.

I have had countless people ask me for their phone number so they could and can contact him for something they would need him for. I could not have found a better FIRM, than SIRO, SMITH, DICKSON, and I definitely could not have won that case without each and every one of these team members especially, Rik Siro.”

“I never thought I would find myself in the devastating position of losing a job through the inappropriate actions of an employer. It was a very emotional period for me and my family as we considered contacting an attorney. After talking with four different law firms, we decided Eric Smith and his team at Siro Smith Dickson would give us our best chance at a positive outcome. The team at Siro Smith Dickson changed my life during that time, as they helped me to understand the law and my right to use it.

Their initial assessment of my case, timing, and subsequent legal strategy were proven to be spot-on as they kept me focused and off of the emotional aspects of my situation while pointing me towards the potential positive outcome. Their diligence and competence during the discovery and deposition phases were hugely effective, all while representing me in a very professional manner.

Throughout the process, they kept me updated and informed, always available to answer my questions and concerns. Aside from the large monetary settlement they secured, Siro Smith Dickson gave me back my dignity, peace of mind, and the confidence in myself to move forward in my life and career. The time spent working as partners with the firm proved to be enjoyable, rewarding, and tremendously successful. I consider myself truly blessed to have been represented by lawyers using their talents and passion to right the wrongs of my case, for which I am eternally grateful.”

It’s not easy letting your emotions go and to solely rely on the facts but this firm truly represented me in a way that made me feel proud of my career accomplishments again. From the beginning of my case until the end I felt like I was in great hands to represent not just myself but my family as well because we are all impacted. Thank you again for listening and believing in me.”

“I’ve worked for nearly three years with Athena, Ryan, and the team at Siro Smith Dickson on my employment case. From the moment I met her, Athena was supportive in helping me navigate through the complexity of legal issues surrounding my case, including representing me during my filing for unemployment, the subsequent appeal from my former employer, and defending me when my employer filed an additional retaliatory claim.

Athena and her team were always available to answer any questions I had (there were many!) and to help me prepare for my Federal jury trial. Lawsuits can be scary and intimidating on so many levels, but the team at Siro Smith Dickson offer compassion and support to make it less so. They are hands down the best employment attorneys in the Kansas City metro…..I recommend them highly!”

She is a wonderful person. In fact, I tell everyone if you ever need a good lawyer let me know so I can tell you about a great person. I was very satisfied with my settlement she got for me. With all my love. Many, many thanks to you.”

“I am a 24 ½ year veteran of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department, now retired. I have had the honor and privilege to know and work with the staff at the Siro Law Firm involving a lawsuit against the Kansas City Missouri Police Department. Rik Siro’s commitment, efficiency, and invaluable knowledge of representing me as a person that was wronged goes without question. Their concern about you as a person, first and foremost, is part of their high standard of professionalism.

As a result of their commitment to my Age Discrimination case, I was awarded 2.7 million dollars. Without question, if it was not for the collective commitment of this law firm, my family and I would be lost without any hope of seeking proper justice.
