Professionalism
I am not one to post comments, however I have worked with Alan Nisberg for many years now and have the highest respect for Alan’s work ethics and skills as a lawyer. He has always made himself available to answer questions and address concerns. I believe Alan’s clients are his top priority and his attention to detail is unmatched, giving me the confidence I need when defending complex liability claims or involved in complex fraud investigations. I highly recommend Alan Nisberg to anyone needing a high level of defense of complex litigation issues.

Competent, Effective and Professional
Alan keeps in continuous contact with his client. He makes himself available and listens to the client. Alan insures that his client understands the litigation and is engaged in the process. Alan is not phased by the bluster of opposing counsel and maintains professional conduct. I have no reservations in recommending Alan for legal representation. I have known and worked with Alan for over five years.
