“As a small company, occasionally we need help to secure payments.
Once we engaged Sternberg-Reed, our solicitor was Elliot Hammer and we were very pleased with his service.
We have found him to be efficient, diligent and easy to communicate with.
Since then, we have used Sternberg-Reed several times and would not consider using any other solicitors.”

At first I was very nervous about going to court but with the reassurance and guidance Elliot gave me I was made at ease. The outcome of my case was successful. Thank you Elliot.”
