| Hired Attorney
Our behavioral health company hired Mr. Berlandi and his law firm to assist us with ongoing compliance, human resources and overall personnel issues. Mr. Berlandi has been nothing but professional, friendly and accommodating. He and his firm are quick to respond and readily available. His knowledge, expertise, and assertiveness as an attorney has been exceptional. He maintains an exemplary work ethic and great dedication to his clients. Our continued working relationship with Mr. Berlandi and his firm for nearly 2 years speaks for itself.... we wouldn't have any other firm.

Brian Berlandi Should Be Your Lawyer
I've known and used Brian as my attorney for twelve years. Additionally, I have recommended him to several friends. He is a tenacious and tough attorney. When faced with an adversary who needs to be fought hard, Brian is the right choice. Very smart, but more importantly, Brian is extraordinarily generous with his time. he knows when to flip the switch from tough to consoling, also. Great attorney. I will continue to use and recommend Brian to others.

Very bright and talented
Brian has provided me with strategic advice on mitigating risks inherent in my real estate joint venture investing, and the legal documents to create the joint ventures (e.g. operating agreements, etc). With Brian, I am receiving the expertise one would expect from top-shelf NYC law firms. He has my fullest recommendation.
