“When starting a business you have a mixture of fear excitement and think of nothing more than how you are going to make this project work. You don’t really think of the bad things that might come out of working with others when making a dream a reality.
Like many, after the honeymoon you discover that people who you thought of as friends turn into embodiments of their worst qualities. You feel alone, betrayed, and scared that your dream is about to be shattered. When faced with this moment, one of the lowest in my life, we met Aviva Gordon.
Aviva met with us just to talk and to see if we would be a good fit for each other. She never pressured us, never made promises. During our conversation I felt supported, understood, and relieved. For the first time in weeks I did not feel like I was about to become ill. I was not just talking to a lawyer who was interested in my checking account; I was talking to a person who understood our issue, offered advice, and seemed to care about us. She was a rock who was giving us her wisdom on the law.
As we went through a very unpleasant law suit, Aviva made it better. She offered options, advice, and support, all done with personal care. She often told us not only the options but what they would cost and what the likely outcome would be. She easily could have let us go down a road that would have cost us more money than we had. Instead, she led us to a solution that worked. She was always quick to say, “Guys, this action will cost you too much in legal fees . . . not worth doing unless you just want to prove a point.” Aviva answered all of our questions. She never made us feel stupid or unimportant. She made us feel like family. When the other person’s attorney tried hard to take advantage of us, Aviva was a pit pull and made him follow the law.
I hope I will never need to enter a courtroom again. But If I do I hope I’ll have Aviva at my side. I recommend her to all my clients. There are some people who you hope you will not need their service, but if you have a legal matter Aviva is the best.”
