My small business has utilized Richard's services for our legal needs on several occasions.  He helped us incorporate and get our legal affairs in order when starting up our business.  He is very accessible and has a great depth of knowledge with regard to business law and the needs of a small business.  On top of that he is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend his services for any small business.

Look no further! My sister and I went through the ringer searching high and low for a business lawyer for our business development and contracts. When I saw all the 5 star reviews I thought he may be too good to be true. I can happily say that Richard lived up to those 5 stars!

I just opened up a small private gym and Richard assisted me in it all. From my lease agreement to my liability form to my membership agreement. He continues to support me and help me. Hes very knowledgeable and explains things to where i can understand them. He has been a major help in teaching me the ropes of owing a business. I will forever be grateful for him.

Richard's motto should be, "When there's trouble, I'm there!" because.. well, he is! Richard isn't only prompt when it comes to responding to messages, he is also very knowledgeable.

The fees we paid Mr. Greenbaum for,his services were some of the best monies we have ever spent for an attorney. I highly recommend him. If you reach out to him you will see his detail oriented methods and feel at ease that you called the right person to handle your contractual disputes.

Yelp Review

Being the sole proprietor of a small business, there have been a handful of times I've been in need of legal counsel. From the first business contact Mr. Greenbaum advise me on, not only was his advice sound and solid, but it convinced me that should I ever be in need of legal services again, there would be absolutely no need to seek out any other attorney.
