Doug - LLC formation and corporate/business help
Can’t say enough positive things about Resnick Law, P.C. Our LLC was formed by Julie, a practicing Attorney at Resnick Law, and from the first email, she grasped on and took care of everything. Resnick Law removed all of the stress and confusion out of our LLC formation and completed everything for us fast and efficiently. There’s nothing more satisfying than having a professional working to make sure things filed with precision. DNA Creative is my first LLC, and because of the piece of mind that Julie and Resnick Law provided my company, I will be using them for every new venture going forward. Choose Resnick Law if you’re seeking a group of professionals who are committed to making sure your needs are fulfilled, instead of how much revenue they can generate from you. Thank you, Julie and everyone at Resnick Law, for taking the LLC work off my plate and for giving me the legal confidence I needed at the very beginning!

THE BEST representation
Because or our unexpected time of hardship, we had no choice but to file bankruptcy. As humbling as it was, I interviewed quite a few attorneys in person, by email and by phone. Julie H. Trepeck was the only one who responded promptly, took a good look at our situation in detail, analyzed it and advised us of our options. No games. Competitive pricing. This was all done with comfort and class, allowing us time to think about what choices to make (not like other firms who treated us like another customer in a car dealership, or a cattle call). Trepeck was there for us every step of the way, answered any question we had thoroughly and quickly with no hesitations. I cannot express enough how hard of a situation this was for us, how we knew nothing, how bankruptcy worked, how confused and terrified we were.... I can definitely say ... WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN BETTER HANDS !! I am truly thankful to her and her team!
