Gave me a great start
I hired Lisa to help me create my company's first contract. I appreciate the experience, knowledge and advice that she shared with me. I feel very confident negotiating with clients knowing that I can rely on Lisa's expertise to protect my interests. I highly recommend her (in fact I have!) to other entrepreneurs who need an attorney who is honest, accessible, extremely smart, and a pleasure to deal with.

Lisa Pomerantz has been a valuable resource.
Lisa Pomerantz has never failed to spend the time necessary with us to fully explain our options. She has given us excellent advice on all occasions. She always explains legal matters in layman's terms. She seems to genuinely care about our problems and her pricing is fair. She is certainly knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with in all ways.

Helped with physician contract negotiations
I initially consulted Lisa Pomerantz to discuss the non-compete clauses in my employment contract and better understand the implications when starting up my own practice. She guided me with simple to understand language and helped muddle through some of the most complicated legal jargon to give me understanding to make decisions about my future. Her legal counsel was invaluable in making me feel confident I understood the complicated negotiations involved with creating a business entity, establishing a medical practice, and working with an independent physicians alliance. Her response time is always quick, she is in constant contact and open and available for questions. I feel like her rates are reasonable for the services she provides, and as an individual I feel like she was able to look out for my needs. She was honest about her scope of practice and was able to assist me in all aspects I called on her for. I would highly recommend her to any physician colleagues in the future, and will continue to use her services as I need them.

I can't thank Lisa enough guiding us thru our LLC dissolution. She is detailed and patient. She read thru all documents and explained us fully including our options.

Lisa was hired to settle a employment matter with a previous employer. She was clear and provided excellent communication on each step and progress. She would always look at the full picture to prevent any future issues and worked diligently to finalize a fair resolution. She was able to speak off hours and weekends understanding clients can have other obligations. I am very satisfied with her knowledge and ability focusing on employment law!

Outstanding Attorney with excellent Legal Advice
My company is a small business that specializes in training, certification and auditing services for government, military and aerospace applications. As a new business with significant exposure to risk, we have much to learn about legal agreements and contracts. To protect the future of our business, we hired Lisa Pomerantz based on her combination of practice areas and years of experience. Upon meeting her the professionalism she displayed gave us an immediate feeling of security when we discussed our business needs. In December 2017, we hired Attorney Pomerantz to review a contract for our company to develop training materials and to provide online training services for a larger training company. Lisa reviewed the contract and quickly identified hidden partnerships we were not aware of, copyright agreements that were not established for our training materials and she helped us realize that that our compensation was not clearly defined. My company's intellectual property could have been captured without my knowledge and we could have lost critical trade secrets specific to our company's unique skills. The agreement was loaded with many hidden traps that would have paralyzed our small company without our knowledge. Our "near miss" is a perfect example of how small businesses can be taken advantage of by larger businesses and it is imperative to seek the "best" attorney for the specific business model. I am grateful that my husband researched Attorney Pomerantz's profile and found that several of her practice areas were perfect for our business: consulting, training, computer and internet law. Her expertise in early assessment, negotiation and business law has certainly keep our company from making critical mistakes when developing new relationships with our clients. She has protected us thus far and we look forward to a long profitable relationship!

Strategic Alliance
When working for her clients, Lisa makes it a point to look for and avoid all pitfalls, etc. What we originally thought would be a simple agreement needed so much more detail than we realized. Lisa helped us enter into the alliance with realistic expectations. Her follow-up and ability to understand and explain is exemplary. We will be using her services for any future legal/contract needs.

New Name & New Address
Lisa is a extremely efficient and well versed in business law. She was able to inform me without making me feel like a complete idiot for previous business decisions pertaining to the name of my business. I hired Lisa to review a new lease for a new business location and to file a business name change. My only regret is that I didn't hire her 10 years ago when I first formed my company! Lisa is an asset to any company that hires her.

Highly Recommended
Lisa went above and beyond in helping me to negotiate and structure an employment agreement. She not only provided great legal advice but also seemed to really care about the outcome of the situation. The manner is which she billed was also very fair. She is a rare find and I would certainly recommend her and use her again.

Corporate Merger
Ms. Pomerantz walked me through a corporate merger between myself and another corporation. She truly made the whole process very pleasant. She was very patient and answered each question with an obvious huge knowledge base. I would recommend her services to anyone going through, or thinking about going through this process. She performed all services in a timely manner, was easily approachable with questions and concerns and saw my business through with accuracy and knowledge.

Awesome Lawyer
Lisa from the start was very informative and knowledgeable. Offered me different options in pursuing different assistance programs such as the SBA in building a solid Business foundation before pursing a Lawyer. Cause of this I'll be pursuing her legal assistance once the Business is off ground.

Stong Advocate in Negotiations and Contract Review
We have had the pleasure of working with Lisa on multiple occasions. She has reviewed several contracts for us and helped us negotiate better language/wording. I find she is thoughtful about her input. She brings a real legal perspective to our business decisions. She was also instrumental in a difficult Employment Law negotiation settlement. She was able to find consensus and move our settlement forward even working opposite a difficult party. We also benefit greatly from her network of professional contacts. She helped us make several useful connections. She is great at defining your options and allowing you the room to make your own decision. She is strong when needed and un-intimidating to speak with as a client. She is a valuable member of our Team.

I sought the services of Lisa Pomerantz to review and help me enhance my transition agreement. I was truly lucky, as I did not know her, or know of her, prior to contacting her about my case. Lisa took the time to understand my case from our initial phone conversation. I appreciated her honesty about what she could do as well as being clear about what she couldn't do. Her experience in corporate law was a definite asset. She kept me informed throughout the process, and in the end, we significantly improved my transition agreement. I would recommend Lisa. Thank you again Lisa!!

I'm so glad I found Lisa
I went to Lisa with a job related issue. She informed me of all of my options, was very upfront about what she could and could not and, in general, was just what I needed. She kept me up to date every step of the way and always presented an upbeat, positive attitude; which was just what I needed at the time. She helped bring about a resolution very quickly and very much to my satisfaction. I would definitely use her again should the occasion present itself. Thanks, Lisa.

Mediation Attorney | Jan 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Lisa served as the mediator in a very factually complex case involving a fraudulent wire transfer. She was quite simply amazing. We called her less than 24 hours before the mediation was scheduled to begin when the original mediator became ill. She quickly mastered the facts and brought the parties together toward a settlement they were all satisfied with. I cannot say enough good things about her."
