Experienced, Dedicated, and Remarkable Attorney
Attorney Eisenstadt recently represented me for a 2nd OUI charge, and for Leaving the Scene of Property Damage. My case was out of an extremely strict court, and my case was complicated; However, these factors did not delay Mr. Eisenstadt from working above and beyond for my family and I. Due to his expertise, and the endless amount of work that he dedicated to my case, I was given probation, rather than jail time. I can not thank Attorney Eisenstadt enough for his professionalism, his empathy, and his ongoing communication from beginning until end. I highly recommend him to any person in need of an attorney.

His background and experience has made working with him extremely easy as he can handle various issues over a wide range of legal topics. His guidance, advice and personal availability has given our family comfort that our legal questions are being handled in the best way possible. I would highly recommend him to all our family and friends and will most certainly use him for any legal matters in the future.
