We had a situation where we were a small tenant inside of a big market. We relied on the location being good because of the foot traffic from the big market. When the big anchor tenant when out of business for 6 months, many people thought we closed down and our landlord wouldn't let us out of our contract. They eventually reopened but many people thought we went out of business and we lost many customers. We owed a large balance of about $80,000 in back dated rent. Stuart was able to negotiate this balance to about $25,000 which was a number we were comfortable with. He is very kind and did the job when many other lawyers and people could not. Would definitely recommend!
I hired Stu to help me negotiate a commercial lease for a franchise I was planning to open. He was very thorough, professional, honest, and timely throughout the whole process. Stu was always accessible and made me feel like I was his only client! The negotiations with the Landlord and Franchisor ended up taking more than 3 months, and Stu was instrumental in proposing terms in the lease that all three parties agreed to. I would recommend Stu to everyone and will use his services for all future business transactions.
Having a real estate and legal background, I was not sure I needed any help with reviewing my lease but found Stuart's expertise and help far exceeded my expectation. He was very valuable and would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to anyone. I appreciated his timely communication and help with negotiation as well with my business lease.
I had a sticky situation with my landlord and Stuart did a great job of counseling me as to what my options were, and pointed me in the direction that was best for me, and not the most profitable for him. He included me on all pertinent correspondence to my landlord's attorney and even included some additional items in the settlement that were favorable to me and I never would have thought of on my own. I enjoyed working with Stuart and if I ever need legal advise again he will be my first contact.
Stu is a clear and to the point communicator. An ally during stressful times-- a true advocate. Reliable, and took our problem to a positive outcome in a straightforward manner. His counsel was sound, and he guided us through complicated matters giving us balanced perspective on all options.
As a business owner I have worked with many attorneys-- and as i stated in the title to this review: working with Stu has been the most positive experience we have had working with a lawyer. I highly recommend him.
Stu's advice has been honest...not just what we wanted to hear.
Stu, was instrumental in my lease. We managed to add many provisions that benefited me in the long run. I would use Stu again for my next store.
Mr. Heller has worked for our company for 17 years. All our needs were met and we are very pleased with his work and continue to use his services.
I have had the luxury of having Stu Heller as my Attorney for the past nineteen years. Stu has handled all of my legal matters and I have found his work to be exemplary. He is insightful, his work is thorough and he does a great job of interpreting and communicating difficult issues that need resolution. I could not ask for better legal advice.
Stu's business acumen and congenial no-nonsense approach deliver efficient and effective results. He made me feel like I was his only client.
