Opposing Counsel
Corey is a true professional. I was opposing counsel on a recent case. He I had the ability to advocate 110% for his client while being a true professional. His knowledge of the law is equally impressive.

Honest and Candid Attorney
Corey provided us honest and candid advice and consultation. Told us what we needed to hear instead of what we wanted to hear. I would definitely turn to Corey again for my future legal needs.

Knowledgeable and recommended
Corey was very patient reviewing and discussing a mechanic's lien on a residential remodel. His experience and knowledge of business and construction law is quite evident. I appreciate his expertise with my contractor dispute and will highly recommend his services to others.

Incredibly Helpful
I consulted Corey about a renovation project. He gave me invaluable advice, that helped me establish much better communication with our contractor. Thanks to Corey's guidance we came to a mutually beneficial understanding. Also, Corey was incredibly kind.

Excellent attorney
I own a real estate/property management company. Corey Stern is our corporate attorney who handles of our legal matters, transactions and litigation. He is prompt, extremely knowledgeable and provides advice that I can actually use in my business. Most importantly, he provides me with information that I need to know. He doesn't just answer the questions that I have, but also advises me of the questions that I should be asking.
