I customize your services
Never pay a cent until you see what you're getting and exactly what it will cost
Business thrives on predictability. That's why I take the guesswork out of legal billing. You choose whether to retain me for a specific legal task or to put me on-call. You may choose Counsel On Call, where I will join your team as trusted legal resource from day one of your new business. For a flat monthly rate I will assist with critical formative issues, such as compliance with local ordinances, entity formation and drafting of contracts (from leases to service agreements). Another option is Legal Tune-Up, where I will review your preexisting legal structure, documents and policies to make sure that your enterprise is not only reaching its full potential but to ensure that its interests are fully protected. Find out if your business is running on all legal cylinders or whether catastrophe is just around the bend. No matter your challenges, I will help you to tailor a package to get it done according to your specific position.
I am in the cloud
Efficiency + security + environmental consciousness = the cloud
Modern approach to an old profession
From day one, LMS Legal LLC was designed to be cloud-based. All data is secured (using bank-level encryption), accessed and backed up in the cloud. The data is organized, searchable and---almost--- completely paperless. The process is cutting edge, but the the result is practical: secure, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective practice of law. The efficiency and the value flow to you.
I am a "sword." And a "shield"
A sword when you need one; a shield so you won't.
The combination of these practices strengthens both, and you
I don't just sit behind a desk writing contract language, I also litigate over contract language. That way, I see up close how the courts decide certain issues. There is no better way to gain insight into effective contract drafting than to see how it all plays out in court.
I am an entrepreneur, like you
Just like you, I know the importance of serving my clients

The Lease Slayer
Lee got me many concessions in my lease, and saved me thousands over the term of my lease. Nearly everything I wanted, he negotiated in. My space went down $.50/ft2, my electrics went down $.25/ft2, the increase went from 3% every year to just 3 years of 2.5%. Operating Costs can only increase 4% a year, and we all know Philadephia will raise taxes so that saves me a bundle. Lee was great to work with, personable and friendly, and explained every step of the way to me.

How Lee Helped Me
I’m Tom, and Lee Schlamowitz was recommended to help me in renting and selling my late Mother’s house — a whole new experience for me. Lee put together a package that we are all very happy with, and covered all bases as regards licenses and permits and whatever. I’d have no hesitation recommending him.

Professional and Efficient
My company has been working with Lee for over 4 years and the service has been exceptional. Lee's work is always completed before our deadlines with plenty of time to review his research together. I would absolutely recommend Lee to friends and family.

An amazing lawyer
Amazing lawyer. He is also very kind, i run a Startup and I'm very lucky to have Lee as my lawyer. He is so flexible with everything and the best part is that he replies to my email at 2:00 AM in the morning. Lee is probably without a doubt the most understanding and helpful person I’ve met.

A Great Attorney
Lee is a great attorney. He goes above and beyond his duty to help out his clients. He really puts his clients first. I have used Lee for my real estate deals and a few other personal cases. I have seen him emailing me a contract in the middle of the night on weekends to meet the deadline. It's really rare to find that dedicated attorney. I am very happy working with him.

Cares about his clients
I've been working with Lee for several years now. He's positioned our startup for massive success. It's awesome to have counsel who cares about your business, but you, as a person, even more than that. We've created a really strong relationship over the years and we do customary check ins, even when there's not necessarily too much new items to report because we created that rapport. I'd recommend him to anyone out there.

Enjoyed working with Lee
He's done excellent work for me personally, for my work, and my business. He got me out of a partnership agreement that I was unhappy about. He's also squashed unreasonable/pesky complains by a neighbor on my rental property. He's fixed some of the complicated multi-state incorporation for my work. I am happy to send him referrals, because he gets things done.

Provided IP Counsel & Services
I hired Lee for assistance with putting together a contract regarding digital media & intellectual property. With his input, I was able to obtain a version of the contract that fully protected my existing intellectual property once it switched from independent to contract production. His counsel & services were invaluable in helping me broaden my audience and expand my brand.

I've been working with Lee for years on both of my businesses; and will continue to do so for many more years too!
I cannot say enough great things about Lee or how much value Lee has given us over the years. The best way to summary Lee, he has become our "outsourced" in-house counsel for both my existing company and my previous company that ran from 2012-2014. Lee has done it all for us. Just off the top of my head, he has provided the following services to us over the years: 1) Contract creation, agreement edits and even negotiations with potential clients and prospects 2) Create terms of services, privacy policies, business agreements, employee and contractor agreements 3) Provided consultation on legal matters and assistance to avoid situations from escalating unncessarily 4) Helped in very time and sensitive issues Again, that is JUST off the top of my head. For context on how valuable Lee has been for us, we refer him to our clients, time and time again. We're preachers. We would never recommend to our paying clients anyone unless we know they can not only deliver, we've worked with them directly. Lee has one of our longest lasting business relationships at our company, always over-delivers, has the best communication I've ever seen with an attorney, and cares about you. He's even affordable which is incredible! You won't find a better business, startup, enterprise or professional attorney in the market.

Business Attorney | Dec 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Lee is a superlative attorney who focuses on helping small and startup business owners navigate through the potentially perilous pitfalls of business ownership and operations. From business, LLC or corporate formation documents to commercial lease review to advice on advertising, trade secrets, licensing, non-compete agreements, and other transactions, Lee is the attorney to call. We have worked together when disputes in transactions and operations have turned into contentious litigation. Lee's foresight and experience can help his clients prevail when a transaction turns into a dispute. Lee has my highest possible recommendation. I have recommended - and will continue to recommend - Lee to my relatives, close friends and fellow veterans who need assistance with small and startup business advice."
Business Attorney | Sep 15
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the good fortune of co-counseling with Lee on a several different business, real estate, and intellectual property matters for which my firm has brought him in to assist with. Lee has consistently provided sound advice and pragmatic direction. In one specific IP-royalties matter, Lee had the confidence to push back against my firm's initial thinking and instead suggested an alternative approach that can safely be said to have shifted the balance of persuasion in our favor and most likely was the impetus for a favorable result in the case . It is competence and confidence like that why we continue to engage Lee on various matters. Timely, assertive, knowledge and pragmatic, we highly recommended Lee."
