Blessing in disguise
I ran accross Mr. Hymans number while doing a Google search and let me tell you, I've never been happier. Andrew (as he introduced himself) was very patient and provided a great deal of advice to me including a few references to help me along the way. Many Attorneys I've spoken with rush me and make me feel less than; Not Andrew. He heard my silent screams and validated them. Andrew is proof that one bad apple does not spoil the entire bunch. By the time the call ended I was asking him for is Avvo info so that I could rate him. Thank you Andrew for your time and your help. If No one else appreciated you my husband Michael and I sure do! Continued Blessings to you sir!

Outstanding
My experience with Andrew Hyman was outstanding compared to all the other attorneys that I have interview thus far. I was starting to lose faith in finding someone who would fit what I thought an attorney should be. I could tell immediately that Andrew was not only knowledgeable but experienced regarding my situation. I would look no further and give Andrew a call if you are looking for a good business attorney.

He brings a wealth of experience to his legal practice, and is a great professional to collaborate with. I have always appreciated his advice, and highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a top notch transactional attorney.

Highly recommended
I'm very fortunate and grateful to have had Andrew Hyman as my advocate and representative through what was a stressful and potentially financially draining dispute. He was very responsive and knowledgeable and obtained positive results very quickly and effectively. He dedicated valuable time, advice and guidance before even being formally retained and provided excellent counsel. I highly recommend him professionally and personally.
