Knowledgeable and empathetic
A few weeks ago, I had the need to seek legal assistance. A friend told me about Marc Rapaport and his firm, how well they had treated him and how happy he was about the final outcome regarding the legal situation he has facing on his business. I decided to try my luck contacting this firm. Time proved that it was the wisest decision I had ever made. Since the first minute, Marc proved to be both knowledgeable and empathetic. I was informed of every step of the whole process. Marc was honest and straight to the point. I can say that Rapaport Law Firm exceeded my expectations with their attention to detail and dedication.

Excellent
Although Mr. Rapaport has been our lawyer for a short time, he has been nothing but trustworthy, professional and personable. For New York standards, Mr. Rapaport’s rate is extremely reasonable. He successfully solved our ADA case in a timely manner. We highly recommend him to anyone who is searching for a lawyer. Thank you, Mr. Rapaport.

Exceptional Lawyer and Human
Marc was a godsend in the middle of my divorce. He went above and beyond divorce. Marc was amazing in the drafting of the papers, and the legal process. He was punctual and very detailed oriented and always discuss my options and would ask my opinion before proceeding. I am truly grateful for the help and the settlement between me and my ex-husband. Thank you, Marc! I cannot recommend him enough!

Choosing the best lawyer
Mr Rapaport lifted my spirits when I was going through my divorce and made me feel at ease during my divorce proceeding. I not only consider Mr Rapaport my lawyer but also my friend.

Hard working and very knowledgeable.
I retained Marc to represent me in a case against my former employer. He achieved a really great settlement for me. I was pleased with his attention to my concerns.

I am grateful to Mr. Rapaport
Mr. Rapaport has represented me for the past year in my divorce. He is the second attorney that has represented me. Marc's attention to detail and responsiveness has helped me in my case. I am grateful for how hard he has worked on my behalf. From our initial contact, he has been responsive to my emails and phone calls. He keeps me informed of all developments, and has ably represented me in court. When we had to deal with an emergency issue, he was willing to meet with me to prepare court papers on short notice over the weekend. Although my case continues, I am now comfortable that I am in good hands.
