Trustworthy and competent
We were in a situation that we needed to back out a real estate contract signed without the full knowledge of the property, but the deceiving seller threatened to pursue damage far beyond earnest money deposit (EMD) Before talking to Jonathan Bromberg, we consulted with two other lawyers, paid initial consultation fees. Neither offered any constructive opinions but had no problem representing us with additional fees. Without much hope left, we sought help from Jonathan Bromberg. When we met with Jonathan, he was fully prepared and was honest with our situation. With his experience and competence, he was able to find grounds to defend us. Our case finally resolved itself with the seller taking the EMD. Our experiences with Jonathan was absolutely positive. We felt lucky to have met him. I would not hesitate to have Mr. Bromberg representing us in the future if needed.

Helped my 88 year old Mother
I would like everyone to know that because of Mr Bromberg's knowledgeable guidance and advice the John Hancock Insurance company approved my mothers Assisted Living insurance for Riderwood retirement community after denying it for one year. Furthermore, John Hancock has now agreed to make it retroactive to one year ago. This is a huge burden off my family.

Thorough and Personable
Jonathan Bromberg has done three real estate settlements for us over the past several years, providing guidance during contract negotiation and acting as our settlement attorney. Each settlement was executed without hitch largely due to to his knowledge, experience and attention to detail. Jonathan also crafted our wills, accurately capturing our wishes. In all instances, Mr. Bromberg was easily accessible and always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. He couldn't be more personable and it was always a pleasure doing business with him.

Fabulous Client Service
I am a Law firm administrator and have worked around lawyers for over 40 years. Mr. Bromberg was recommended to me by a former colleague in Rockville. I cannot tell you how satisfied we were with not only the results, but with the professionalism and superior client service that both he and his paralegal gave to us as clients.

Legal Partner
Mr. Jonathan Bromberg has been the retained legal counsel for our organization for over five years. I consider him not just an attorney hired by our practice, but a trusted and respected partner with our organization where legal matters are concerned. He listens, gathers the correct information and makes his recommendations in concise terms. I have always appreciated his straightforward professional manner with the business yet he is personable and clearly has the best interest of each individual he represents as a part of any legal equation. I have and will continue to recommend Mr. Bromberg, as well as his firm, to those needing professional or personal legal work.
