The Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg is dedicated to the principle that bigger is not always better. Instead, it rests on a tradition that actually antedates the rise of the “mega-firm”-the solo practice. Emulating a country lawyer in a big-city environment allows Mr. Sternberg to provide more individualized service to his clients, and, at the same time, pursue more collegial relations with other members of the Bar.
Since 1984, Mr. Sternberg has dedicated his practice to representing individuals and smaller businesses. For those corporate clients who have larger needs, he is affiliated with the Metropolitan Washington Law Consortium, PLLC. The larger affiliation allows you to benefit from a close relationship with your lawyer, but it allows easy connection to specific expertise and more economic approaches to handling easier day-to-day matters requiring competence with a lighter hand on the billing rates. If your matter requires multiple areas of practice and a limited practice, such as tax or immigration law, Mr. Sternberg can get you to the lawyers he knows to be the best through MWLC.

I initially chose Mr. Sternberg based on his AV rating and experience in real estate law. I needed his help to review a number of real estate documents on behalf of my daughter who resides in Washington D.C.. He completed his review within a very short period, gave me a thorough and well reasoned analysis, and found necessary changes that I had overlooked. I think the best praise I can give for his legal skills and reputation is that I trusted him to assist my daughter and would not hesitate to refer any of my other children to him for any legal assistance.
