All I can say that Stephen Wood was right, you are a Bull dog in the Court Room, as I saw you have a alot of respect in the Court room and in the Law profession.
I must say you are the best. The stress that goes along with a divorce is unbelievable, but you kept me together and I thank you for the that.
You were there every step of the way for me and again I Thank you.
It is a shame that things happen, but with people like you to walk someone through this is a great service.
I know your years of experience have made you one of the Best Lawyer's in this field and you should be very proud of your accomplishments.
This was a alot tougher than I could have imagine, so once again Thank you.
It seems as if you were not only my lawyer but a Friend as well.
You will always be at the top of your game, and if they had a Stanley Cup for Lawyers, you won the World championship more than once.
I wish you the best in your career, and keep charging hard at the opponent.

Mr. Stern represented my family in a lawsuit against the insurance company of a driver that killed our 3 year old son. This was a very difficult time for me and my family and Mr. Stern was sympathetic, reliable, trustworthy, and also discovered that our policy included coverage for the incident. Mr. Stern was able to win our family a very substantial amount which helped our other children. He was excellent in negotiations. We really appreciate all that he did for us.
