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.

Attorney Daniel Rucker provided our church with legal advocacy that was both highly skilled and readily accessible. His knowledge of the law and his ability to communicate and negotiate resulted in a very positive outcome in a situation we believed might have been impossible to resolve.

I retained attorney Patricia Stamler to litigate a sensitive employment matter. She recognized the implications that the case had on my life, and she treated me as if I was a member of her own family. She is extremely knowledgeable, motivated, prepared, and genuinely cares about her clients and the outcome of the litigation.

Attorney Daniel Rucker was referred to me from a satisfied client. I, too, found my experience with Mr. Rucker very satisfactory. He was able to recover money, that I thought was gone forever, through perseverance and hard work. He was able to get the judgment I needed and all at a reasonable cost. I also was very impressed with his quick response to all my questions and concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others in need of a good lawyer!

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.
