I recently hired Mr. Sternberg to write my will, and to setup a trust for my pets in the event of my untimely death. He was extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Definitely the guy to go to for the hard stuff that many less experienced attorneys would not be able to handle. He was also extremely helpful in finding me an attorney for an out of state issue, and provided great ideas and insight for that out of state attorney. First class all around!

Richard Sternberg is a credit to the profession. I asked him if he could review several real estate documents within a 2 hour period and give me a quick answer as to what changes may be needed. He delayed a social commitment to get this done and gave me a thorough review with specific changes to make to the documents, an explanation why the changes were important, and followed up shortly thereafter to see if I had any questions. His insight was invaluable, especially considering the deadline I asked of him. I highly recommend Mr. Sternberg as an attorney.

Richard was a huge help and pointed out some important pieces of the contract that we needed to get changed. Good guy to have on your side.

Mr Sternberg offered me a valuable service in reviewing a Purchase and sales Agreement that I was considering. He gave me a very frank review of the document indicating shortfalls in the language and an overall assessment that the prospective purchaser significantly undervalues my property. As a result of Mr Sternberg's assessment I was able to negotiate a significant increase in the value of my property with the purchaser. I like Mr Sternberg's thoroughness and I have no reservation about recommending him to others. If I need future legal advice on real estate matters, I'll request his services.

Richard's suggestions and recommendations for an estate I am administering was right on the mark. He demonstrated a solid understanding of my issues, and was able to provide advice that was easy to understand. I am extremely pleased with his advice and results.

Richard Sternberg is a lawyer who is extremely dedicated to his clients. I came to him with a disastrous mess after my mother died unexpectedly. He was incredibly efficient and worked quickly to figure out all that needed to be done. We were able to navigate a very difficult estate situation thanks to his expertise. I am grateful to him for his time and help.

I hired Richard Sternberg in a Landlord/Tenant case.
I had a problem tenant that wouldn't leave. I was able to speak to him same day which was important so I knew how to proceed. I told him I needed a release form at 2 PM on a Friday and he turned it around within 24 hrs.

Had a DC-based case after moving away and had used the old - "who do you know" method of finding an attorney before and wasn't happy with the progress or the middle-step outcomes. So I came to Avvo - hoping this "yelp for attorneys" approach would work for me. I found Mr. Sternberg and retained him as legal counsel for my case with his stellar reviews and I can say they are well-earned. I conveyed my top-priorities and his approach to the case and work were always with my priorities in mind. In the end, I got an outcome I was pleased with and didn't spend the equivalent of a small house doing it (which is sadly very easy to do when retaining legal counsel). So in the end, I felt that I got a lot of value for the dollar spent.

Richard Sternberg was my attorney for a complex international settlement involving the Republic of Angola. Richard used his previous experience working with Angola to help bring about a positive settlement. Richard's balance of intelligence, experience, and practicality no doubt contributed to this outcome. While he does not suffer fools gladly, Richard was able to patiently break down legal issues I never knew existed into easily digestible portions.

The information provided to me by Mr. Sternberg was concise, useful, and most of all enlightening. Mr. Sternberg's level of commitment to his clients and his colleagues is unrivaled in the area. He wasted no time whatsoever, kept me informed and was knowledgable in many diverse areas of law. I learn something each time I speak with him.
