Outstanding Service
Mr. Stiefel has provided my firm with excellent service. We have worked with Mr. Stiefel for almost 10 years and have been very pleased. He always keeps us informed and acts very promptly on our behalf. Mr. Stiefel's expertise has provided us with outstanding results on all matters that he has handled.

Remarkable attorney
Mr. Stiefel represented me in an intricate and complex lawsuit. When he drafted the complaint, he strategically added the phrase "quantum meruit". His strategy was a crucial turning point in the favorable outcome of the case. Mr. Stiefel has excellent negotiating skills and is well versed in business and contract law. On both a professional and personal level, I appreciate John's high ethics, integrity and intellect. I fully trust Mr. Stiefel with my personal and corporate legal matters.

Excellent Council
John Stiefel has represented our firm, in a number of difficult cases, for more than five years. In this time, he has proven to be very valuable council and a true business partner. I would highly recommend John.

A cut way above the rest
This man is a remarkable lawyer. I have 25 years of litigation practice under my belt myself and I have had the opportunity to watch Mr. Stiefel handle - first hand - several cases that were very complicated and contested on all issues. I think his skills and the results he achieves are extraordinary. In one case, he handled, the recovery resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney's fees. In another one, I saw him craft a legal argument out of something that I never would have thought to expand on. It is a whole new approach to the practice of law. His level of competence is far beyond that of most lawyers I know. He offers his clients immediate attention and knows his way around the courthouse. I would trust him with my most important matters because he is definitely a cut above the rest.
