“We first hired Yitz E Weiss over three years ago when we started our own business.

He has assisted us in areas of legal matters, liabilities and foresight to ensure proper decision making. His approachable demeanor, attention to detail and timely responses to all our needs have made him a vital asset to the growth and development of our company.”

Michelle (Review From Avvo)


“I would and have recommended him and his team, They are straight shooters and if they feel they can help you they will. They bent over backwards to make sure I understood every way my case could go and what the risk there was to me. If I had to do it again I would do it all the same. No matter how many delays and road blocks the other side tried they worked right through them.”
