We pride ourselves on providing sophisticated advice with a practical approach to achieve great results. We’re savvy, competent and understand the nuances of providing good counsel in challenging environments.

We’re “relationship-driven”, work hard to earn our clients’ trust and have a reputation for our entrepreneurial and common-sense approach. We try to respond promptly to our clients and keep them constantly informed about our work for them.

Because the areas in which we work are complex and often involve other legal disciplines such as tax, bankruptcy, environmental, intellectual property, patents, labor and employment, employee benefits, domestic relations, litigation, accounting and financial planning, we work closely with other attorneys and professionals to supplement our knowledge and to obtain regional or local perspectives. So, in addition to Jack A. Donenfeld and the lawyers who are of counsel to the firm, we rely on a broad network of other lawyers to enable us to excel at providing our clients with the right advice at the right time. We believe in teamwork.
