Lee Fainman has represented me in two cases, and I would not hesitate to recommend him. Lee is a consummate professional whose manner, attention to detail, and knowledge of the law are beyond reproach. Above all, however, he is a kind and caring person who ensures that his client is on board with the legal process at every step.
I retained Lee to represent me in two separate cases two years apart. In each case, Lee spoke for me in a superior fashion. I could not have chosen a better legal spokesman. It was a relief knowing that I could relax and have my cases handled by someone with superior legal acumen. I would not hesitate to retain Lee again.
As a trained paralegal with 20-plus years' experience in three major cities, I have worked with numerous attorneys. I feel somewhat qualified to make an assessment of an attorney's abilities and personality. Lee was superb in all areas of handling these cases. I am unable to find fault in any area. Lee's attention to detail and personal concern for me had him even calling me after business hours. He professional courtesy exceptional.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lee Fainman to anyone, particularly in the area of Contract / Employment / Labor law.

I used Lee for a water craft accident I got into caused by a drunk driver who moved away to avoid paying my medical bills. Lee was always quick to respond with my numerous questions, and seemed to bend over backwards to make sure that the perpetrator was tracked down and served his papers. Unlike the first lawyer I hired for this case well over a year ago, Lee did this within a month of my representation. He was confident in my case from the start, and followed through on everything he promised.
Lee Fainman is knowledgeable and experienced, and his fees are very reasonable. Considering the amount of time I know that he spent working on my case, I feel like I got away with a steal. If I ever need legal advice in the future, I will definitely be giving Lee a call, and I highly recommend him to anyone else.

Lee Fainman was very professional and got the job done. We were up against a very large corporation and Lee's diligence and follow through made all the difference in the world. I was especially impressed by the way Lee continued to follow up and keep us informed despite the long drawn out legal process. Ultimately, Lee Fainman's firm was responsible for winning us a substantial and very fair settlement and made the process painless. I will be using Lee Fainman and his law firm for all of my future legal issues. Thanks so much for the great work!
