Client Testimonials

Our Clients Rave About Their Results
  • They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.

    “Steven Raiser's law firm handled my case with excellence throughout the process. I had a SBA EIDL loan that got transferred to the Department of Treasury unexpectedly, and had a 30% penalty added to the amount due, and due very quickly, which was very stressful. After talking with Steven Raiser, and working with Harry Gill, who was absolutely brilliant in working with me and preparing the case, they were able to recall the case to the SBA. They were always available quickly, to address my concerns. Having dealt with some law firms before, I really appreciated this.
    Very grateful and appreciative to Steven Raiser and Harry Gill. Great work”
