Testimonials

I will never be able to say thank you enough to attorney Steve Weiss. He is one heck of a good lawyer and a very caring, compassionate person. Who could ask for more! My words convey so little when my heart feels so very much. Forever grateful.

I found myself in a precarious legal situation in which I needed clarity, sound advice, and a person who I could trust to help. Attorney Alex Stotland was my first call. Always available for a call or email, his responsive nature and strong understanding of my situation was excellent. Subsequently I have asked for Alex's help on more day to day situations, and he is more than willing to give me direction or personalize a solution for a reasonable fee. Hopefully I won't have another major problem, but if I do, Alex will again be my first phone call.

Rebecca Barens, CIC, President at Willow Insurance Group

One of the most important choices you can make in your life is the right attorney to represent you, and for me that was attorney Patricia Stamler at Hertz Schram PC. Stamler understands the law process and shows a commitment to persevere through a complex case. I found Patty’s communication skills excellent as she explained each step of the lengthy process and was there with updates on what was happening between all parties as progress was made. I highly recommend Patricia Stamler for your legal needs.

Dan S.

I would definitely recommend attorney Elizabeth Thomson. What makes her phenomenal is her compassion. She genuinely wanted to resolve my cases and ensure that I wouldn’t have any future problems. I felt like she was family and a best friend. I wouldn’t have been able to make it without her perseverance and will recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney who cares about her clients.
