Since being introduced to Joan and Leah in 2018 we have experienced a sense of comfort when navigating very complex matters that they convey through their extraordinary and highly professional delivery on their services. They bring their knowledge and experience to each matter with the sensitivity of it being unique, rather than deploying a cookie-cutter response. Their investigations are thorough and their reports are meticulous, but their thoughtfulness and humanness is what makes them so effective for our requirements.
Leah and Joan are my go-to workplace investigators. They've assisted me and my clients with the investigation of several complex, high stakes, politically fraught matters. Leah and Joan consistently earn my clients' praise and respect for their excellent work product.
"As a Title IX Coordinator at a large research University, I have a large case load but a small team. I engaged Joan Slavin to assist with investigations when I had a staff member on an extended leave. Joan fully understood the nuances of a Title IX investigation, and was able to quickly decipher our university policy. She conducted fair and impartial investigations and provided thorough documentation and reports at the conclusion of the investigation. I highly recommend her services, and will certainly engage her again in the future if I need assistance with investigations."
"I have had the pleasure of working with both Joan and Leah in my role as an HR Business Partner. I found both to be wonderful resources to me as I navigated complex harassment and discrimination claims. They were able to advise me on issues they saw as well as listen carefully to my concerns. I found my partnership with both Joan and Leah to be supportive, honest and respectful of all the parties involved in these difficult cases. I would strongly recommend them to any business needing support and resources in this area."
"I had the pleasure of working with Joan and Leah on several sexual misconduct and harassment prevention learning initiatives in my role as an administrative learning and organization development leader. Both are experts in this area and have an exceptional grasp of not only the legal requirements and policies, leadership and training needed to make our institutions of higher education safe places to learn and work, but also how to practically implement strategies amid these highly decentralized and complex organizations."
"I am lucky enough to have had the privilege of working with both Leah and Joan. I could always count on them to conduct fair and thorough investigations. Their internal reports were well-written and documented each situation. They both work with a strong moral compass and sound judgment. In addition, the training sessions they conducted were facilitated professionally and the feedback I received from managers was always positive. Both Joan and Leah are gifted professionals with the emotional intelligence to handle any situation that is handed to them. Any organization would benefit from having this team work with them in the areas of discrimination/harassment prevention, including best practices, new employee orientation, and consulting on investigations."
“I have worked with Joan for several years on Title IX-related issues involving students and faculty. Joan is exceptionally knowledgeable about this area of the law, and a very skilled investigator. Joan is efficient, thorough and detailed in her work, and a real team player who knows how to effectively partner with an institution.”
"I have partnered with both Leah and Joan on a variety of workplace investigations and appreciated their thoughtful, timely, thorough, and professional approach to each investigation. I cannot stress enough how nice it was to know that I had a trusted partner to help with complicated, time-intensive investigations and on whom I could rely on for sound advice."
