I recently had the privilege of working with Steven Bitterman, Esq., in connection with a business acquisition. I could not be more pleased with his performance. He was “hands on,” and always available to answer all of my questions. He has a strong business acumen -- working with an eye toward getting the deal closed, while still keeping all of my best interests in mind at all times. He is reliable, professional yet personable, and incredibly competent. I would recommend Steven to anyone looking for an attorney who cares and gets the job done.
