    I know Edward Alper to be a very hardworking attorney who puts in long hours. He is a very sociable, friendly person who professionally and diligently guides his clients through the legal complexities of their cases. I would recommend him to any person in need of counsel for landlord/tenant and real estate law.

    I have worked with Ed and referred clients to him on a number of litigated matters involving commercial leases. I, and all the the clients I've referred, have been very impressed with his skill, attentiveness and knowledge of the law.
