Client Feedback

Highest Recommendation

"Lapin Law Firm represented me in a trademark filing, and I would provide my highest recommendation of him. From the outset I was impressed with how extremely knowledgeable he is in the area of trademarks, in terms of both the process and probable outcome. He was very accessible, and consistently apprised me of the status and next steps. He was thorough in answering all of my questions, and conducted a complete search to determine whether the name I sought to protect was already in use; so as to determine the probability that the trademark would be approved if we filed. He promptly did that right after I retained him, and was punctual at each step of the process. The outcome was favorable and I was confident in his expertise and handling of the matter from beginning to end. (As I retained him individually, I’d note this is not an endorsement on behalf of HHS)."

Llewellyn Woolford, Jr.
Assistant Chief Counsel
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Count On Him

Mr. Lapin has a strong work ethic and he cares on a personal level about all his clients."

He is great at breaking down complex issues into their key elements, identifying potential challenges, and proactively recommending resolution / mitigation. Moshe understands our company’s perspective and has a strong business sense as well as good intuition about the interests of others we work with. This makes him extremely effective and efficient.

None Can Even Compare

"I’m beyond grateful that my partner and I stumbled upon Moshe back in 2008. We’ve retained many lawyers to handle matters in-state along the way, but none can even compare to the effort, time, and quality of work Moshe has put in for our ventures. I strongly encourage any startup or small business to hire Moshe because he will truly take the time and thoroughly understand your concern; you won’t feel like you’re rushed or on the clock like the majority of law firms do. He actually cares about what’s going on with you and your business. Pricing is the best you’ll find in the marketplace; especially for startups. From business formation (including membership agreements), to intellectual property/copyright matters, to settlement agreements, hes’ done it all for us. He’s even worked on a personal matter for me. He just helped us wrap up a business matter and I told him in the final email, “See you next time when something comes up!” He knows it, and we know it; he is our go-to attorney and will be until he retires. Let’s hope that never happens!"

All of the work he has done for me is highly exceptional, always delivered on time, and is very reasonably priced. But IMO, the best part of working with Moshe is that he genuinely cares about the clients needs and has plenty of patience to help explain the legal process and make sure we are always on the same page. You can tell he loves the work he does, it definitely shows in the quality. I have many more legal services that I need done in the future, and without a doubt I will be going to Moshe.
