Stuart handled the whole negotiation process in a complex asset purchase agreement which was simple, to the point and very well drafted. Comes highly recommended for business transactions.

I met Stuart a decade ago -- and he helped me save my business. We've worked together ever since. There's no one else I trust. Not only is Stuart a great lawyer, he's also a great guy. More importantly, he gets results. I recommend him without reservation.

Stuart is an exceptional lawyer with a keen sense of intricacies and genuine interest in clients. I worked with Stuart twice with my current case. Stuart left my previous firm to start his own after drafted and filed the complaint. I was very much impressed with his understanding of the case, given the case was fairly complex and he had only one conversation with me. I contacted Stuart two years later to get a second opinion on the status and strategy of the case. To my surprise he still remembered much of the intricacies of the case. He spent some time to study the documents and called me back with really good advices, which prompted me to decide to hire him as my counsel. The decision was not only based on his professional experience but also the feeling that he had a genuine interest in my actions and treated me as a partner to win the case together.

In all my contacts with Stuart he has always exhibited not only a high degree of knowledge and professionalism, but a sense of humor and good nature that betray his generosity and make every experience with him a pleasure as well.
