I got all my questions answered, Great Lawyer!
Incredibly knowledgeable attorney who took time to explain to me my rights, processes of my business and next steps that I need to take. Since I am not in the law business, and not familiar with all the terminology, she spoke to me in a very easy and using an understandable language. I appreciate her time and all the advises that she was able to give me. Thank you Daliah, your knowledge is amazing!

Trademark and Copyright
During my consultation, Daliah answered ALL of my questions and was there to really help, which alleviated most of my concerns. She is well versed in the area of IP that I am launching my business in and it's been wonderful to go to her for advice. I highly recommend Daliah for any IP related matters.

The best in Chicago
I have been with Daliah for 4.5 years now for my start-up fashion business and she is 100% on point, at all times. Whether its a 3rd party or an email from myself, she always responds within a few minutes, no matter what time of day and night. She is also fair, to the point and smart and thorough in everything she does. Her turnaround is also amazing, most of my requests are on rush and she and Chad always make sure they stay on my timeline. She is always catching things that most would miss and always thorough and 100% in her reviews, feedback and dealings. Most importantly, I feel protected in all of my contracts and dealings with her inclusion. I always incorporate her into all conversations to ensure I am covered and it usually works out in my favor in the long run due to her advise and counsel in the initial stages. Daliah has supported vendor/partner contracts/publicity talent (PR, Retail Lease, etc.) to protecting my designs via trademark/intellectual support both by rectifying individuals violating my work to just simply making sure I have protected myself with the proper filings and such. Also, given the changing landscape of social media, influencers and digital, she is always privy to new areas and making sense of them legally. Daliah is a critical part of my business and ensures that I am compliant, protected and in the best of standings in all dealings she touches. I have never second-guessed my investment with Daliah and hope she continues to be a part of my business as I move forward.

Courteous, Professional and Knowledgeable
I contacted Saper Law for a legal consult regarding a terms of service agreement. We had a great conversation that they were well prepared for and I was so impressed with their due diligence and professional courtesy that our call only lasted for half of the paid time! They earned a 15 minute coffee break and I will not hesitate to use them again in the future if I need legal consultation.

Not Too Many People Can Actually Say They Love Their Lawyers
It is not an over exaggeration when I say, "I love Saper Law!" As a new business enterprise in the entertainment industry I was overwhelmed by the different personalities of lawyers I could choose from. After having some lack luster previous experiences I took the plunge with Daliah Saper and her team. That was the best decision I have made. My business contracts were reviewed and perfected. Matt has a hawk eye for minute details which in the legal world can have a huge impact. And the expediency, wow, contracts and trademark application processed in a couple of days. You are making a very smart decision if you choose Saper Law as your team and I'm glad to say that I really love them.

Best in the Biz
I have been working personally with Daliah & Saper Law for the past 6 years on all matters relating to my social internet start-up - including trademarking, intellectual property, copyrights, trade secrets, & the list goes on. Her legal understanding & advice is of the highest caliber & wide enough where I never needed outside consult. I have used her firm for all legal matter pertaining to the site; not only have they been kind & helpful - but have tailor met all of my needs. I consider her to be a friend in addition to being a colleague & recommend her firm every chance I get. You are working with trusted professionals when you are working with Saper Law ...

Daliah Saper
Daliah Saper and Saper law associates are not only knowledgeable, they are approachable, always responding in a timely manner. Daliah Saper recently resolved an issue involving the infringement of the trademarked title of my book, MatchDotBomb. I have used Daliah Saper to establish and renew the trademark of my book's title.

Totally reliable
Daliah and her team are certainly one of the best legal advisors I’ve had the opportunity to work with since our company established a subsidiary in Chicago 15 years ago. Easy to work with, precise and giving an answer to all of our (many) questions. In my line of work I have to deal with legal advisors all over the Globe and I would put Daliah and her team on top of my list for sure.

Masterful, brilliant, efficient Daliah Saper and her team.
Masterful in clarity and efficiency, Daliah is amazing to witness in action. She understood better than I did, my needs, and she became my spokesperson and guide forward in a perfectly maneuvered pace toward a set goal. All under deadline pressure, she accomplished everything we discussed (and she was brilliant) to the final signing of a contract involving IP. I am thrilled to be her client, and I hope to have more opportunities to enlist her aid. Bravo to Daliah and her team!

Excellent Service
I've been a client of Saper Law for a couple of years now. Daliah Saper is an amazing attorney in that, as her client, she helped me fully understand all aspects of my matter so that I can make an informed decision. In a recent case, Daliah explained the law to me in terms that were clear and easy to comprehend. I feel that Daliah truly has her client's best interests in mind and advocates for them.

Responsive, Understanding, and Knowledgeable
Recently Daliah Saper and her associate Chad Nold provided me with legal counsel for a sensitive internet defamation matter. They were incredibly responsive, understanding, and knowledgeable. They provided several suggested plans of action (along with cost estimates for the options) as well as providing advice for settling the matter without a lawsuit. They responded to my case with a sense of urgency but without making me feel pushed or hurried. Also, they’re pricing was very (very) reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Better than expected
Came across this firm as they have this $100 consultation. I thought what the heck, not expecting much more than the basic, we can do this and that......non specific rhetoric, but we will be happy to take your money. Wow, was I wrong. These people were wonderful. They were competent, sympathetic yet practical. If you are shopping for an attorney, you will be doing yourself a service interviewing this firm.

Top Notch
Daliah is an excellent attorney for contract negotiations and software startups in which I previously been involved. She has the knowledge and experience you would expect from a big firm, yet she truly understands how to help her clients thrive. She looked for ways to be more efficient and kept costs under our budget.
