I worked with Jim Lapin on a couple of cases involving collecting funds. He was creative, caring, effective and efficient. Sometime he told me things I did not really want to hear but had to and he said them in such an authentic caring way that I did listen, take it in, and make some changes in how I was seeing the case. He was a great help.

Mr. Lapin distinguished himself in three aspects for our family law case.
First, he and his team demonstrated an interest and talent for approaching our situation with creativity and a cohesive strategy. My previous experiences with attorneys had struck me as formulaic and scripted. This coordinated/strategic approach made a significant difference in how the opposing party behaved and responded, and led to the disputes' resolution.
Second, Jim personally provided wisdom and experience that were very appreciated. These issues were quite emotional and trying, and Jim showed unusual balance in both listening to concerns, and in communicating the limits of a legal approach to resolving these concerns . He even provided strong advice on non-legal resources that assisted.
Finally, Mr Lapin stewarded financial resources wisely - utilizing a team approach, working expeditiously, and managing billings with integrity.
My children and I have achieved an orderly, peaceful life through this process - in large measure due to the efforts of Mr. Lapin and his team.
He has my gratitude and recommendation.
