LEVINE VS PENNSYLVANIA PROPERTY
AN AGREEMENT WAS BEING TORCED UPON ME. LEGAL ADVICE WAS GIVEN TO ME AND LEGAL ACTION WAS INITIATED BY RICHARD LIPSMAN ATTORNEY. THE MATTER WAS QUICKLY RESOLVED TO MY COMPLETE SATISFACTION

Exceptional, Prompt and Professional Service
I've been using the services of Richard Lipsman for almost 20 years now. He is a reliable, thoughtful and extremely diligent attorney. Richard has assisted me with everything from negotiating business deals to the closing on my first home. Being the enterprising individual he is, he has also managed to connect me to some other clients of his which I was able to do business with over time. I particularly respect that fact that he is personable and able to break things down to make it plain and simple and therefore less intimidating to a lay person. Without hesitation or reservation, I recommend Richard Lipsman to anyone who wants a highly competent and capable attorney to be in their corner. And for whatever he may not be able to assist with personally, he definitely knows someone as credible and capable as himself who can assist if need be. I am extremely grateful to him for all that he's done to help me over the years and trust that you could be equally grateful if he were to serve you too!

Richard Lipsman
Mr Lipsman Was extremely helpful in clarifying legal issues involved in our family papers and business. He then addressed necessary courses of action and made recommendations; making sure we understood everything. He saved us time and money and has brought numerous legal matters to a successful conclusion for me and my family and business. Easy to work with - a warm and caring human being with his clients' best interests in mind. I hope to work with him for many years to come.

The best
Richard helped facilitate and expedite a bequest to an organization of which I am a board member. He is not only prompt, efficient, and utterly professional; he is the kindest, most honest attorney you will ever meet!

Excellent service
Mr. Lipsman was courteous and extremely helpful during the estate planning for my in-laws. He helped my father-in-law understand all the requirements and details of his will, power of attorney and health proxy. I would absolutely refer him.

Very Satisfied with this Attorney
We were the plaintiffs in a real estate litigation a few years back. Mr. Lipsman not only received a favorable settlement for us, but always acted in a professional and dedicated manner. He was thorough in explaining details and always answered our questions promptly. Mr. Lipsman was with us every step of the way in this litigation and we were very pleased with the settlement. We would highly recommend this lawyer to others.

I met Mr Lipsman over 24years ago through a family member. he handled my first purchase of a commercial property, setting up my will , and most recently helped me with issues dealing with a client of mine who was extremely difficult. he is always the person i fall back on when an issue arises i can not express the trust i have in his ability to get things done. a true professional in every sense .

"Mr. Lipsman was my very first employer in the field of law. I had the privilege of working for him as an intern at his law firm. During my time at his firm I was able to see first hand how he interacted with his clients and what it takes to be a great attorney. He is very dedicated to his work. I learned so much by working for him and feel that I benefited tremendously by the knowledge I was able to take away from this job. Even to this day and being a practicing attorney for almost 10 years now, I still reach out to Richard to bounce ideas off of him, and to refer clients back and forth. I fully endorse him in all of his areas of practice."
