What Clients Have Said:

“As you know, our case was both long and involved, spanning four years. During this time, I was always impressed with your honesty, fairness and attention to detail…. The real crowning achievement, however, was your performance during the trial. It was a masterpiece. It was clear…that we were better prepared, more enthused, and better represented at the trial…. So, to conclude, thanks for the professionalism that you brought to the attorney-client relationship.”


Letter from client

“Needless to say we are all happy to have this thing behind us but I want you to know how much we all appreciated the splendid way in which you…went about this matter from the earliest preparations to the final negotiations. I don’t see how we could possibly have been represented any better and it was a personal pleasure for me to work with you.”


Letter from client

“[We were] very pleased with the speed, quality and thoroughness of the services you rendered.”


Letter from client

“Your talent for resolving problems in your clients’ favor was rewarded by the judge far beyond my ability to add or subtract, by his approving smile and loud ‘Good job.’ May I add my gratitude for the kindness, empathy which you showed to your client; the careful instruction and most of all the discretion and circumspection.”

Letter from client

“Mr. Scher, from the outset, could not have been more courteous and helpful. His attention to my problem and the manner in which he handled it was, simply put, impressive. I would also like to point out that during the time Mr. Scher worked on my case not only was he thorough, but he also demonstrated a feel for the nuances of the case…. It was my pleasure to deal with your firm and in particular to work with Mr. Scher.”
