I had previously signed a retainer with Mr Saphier to set up a complex medical business involving multiple parties. Several intricate legal issues were on the table including numerous State and Federal regulations.
Mr Saphier created a functional business entity which was most satisfactory to all parties involved. His work was rapid, reasonable and appropriate in cost, and served our needs extremely well. He was available for follow up consult and returns all phone calls and emails promptly.
Most recently I consulted Mr Saphier for a medical staff issue. I provided him with the documentation involved and within 24 hours he provided me with a plan of action that was most satisfactory.
I have been very pleased with Mr Saphier and his work. I have great confidence in both his knowledge and experience as well as his work habits and ethics and I would be happy to retain Mr Saphier again.

I initially hired Mr. Saphier to look at the existing contract for the medical practice to which I was signed. Since then, he has set up my S-corp, and reviewed all documents required to start my own medical practice. In my experience, Mr. Saphier is everything I was looking for in a lawyer. Knowledgeable, experienced, timely, direct, and truly an advocate for my position in all situations. He is very clear about his area of expertise, and is earnest about when a question is outside his scope of practice. He has worked with me personally to assist in a time of great uncertainty, and I am very grateful to him.

I worked with Michael to construct a Stock Purchase and Sell Agreement for a medical practice. It was complicated, but in the end, I could not be happier with the outcome. After the transaction was complete, the CPA from the seller asked me if he could use Michael as a consultant for future transactions. The CPA informed me he would be referring future clients to Michael to handle these sorts of transactions.
