Client Approach

“I treat every client as if they were family, and every case as if it was a gold medal match. I believe that being overprepared is the only way to handle a case so that I can attack any obstacle thrown my way. I respond to all phone calls and e-mails as soon as possible and try to keep clients informed about the status of their cases. Representing clients is a privilege, and being able to right a wrong is one of the greatest feelings."

Client Reviews
"Ryan Margulis is an awesome injury attorney and I recommend his firm highly. He is an honest and very professional attorney, returns calls immediately, very trustworthy. I recommended many new clients to the firm, and all the clients I sent to the firm were very happy with their results." Jorge S.
"This is one of the finest law firms I have ever dealt with. Every time I called Steve he got right back to me. I had a small case and he did not one time pass my case on to another member. He personally handled it to the very end. Thanks again, Steve Seidman." Eric V.
"I was referred to Melanie Fairman to represent me for my brother's case. She was outstanding and went above and beyond to represent me during a very stressful time in my life. She is very professional and loyal to her clients. She fought hard for my case and did not let me give up and I am very satisfied with the outcome, thanks to her. Thank you so much for everything you have done for my family!" Nancy R.
"Ryan Margulis and his team were extremely helpful and diligent in helping my family and I after an auto accident. We felt very comfortable leaving our case in their hands. Communication was great, and they do not waste any time. I will definitely be using them again should I need their services." Matthew H.
