Working with Steve gave me confidence that I was actually going to close a deal that faltered for 8 years before Steve’s personal involvement. He made this possible with his brilliant knowledge of the law, accompanied by his compassion and diplomacy. At every step of the way Steve provided guidance and sage advice. He prepared me for the challenging decisions that needed to be made by educating me on all the possible alternatives. I truly believe he brings a skill set and special abilities including strong communication and realistic negotiation that not many other attorneys possess. As a strategist and trusted advisor, there is nobody better than Steve Sneiderman.

Todd Silverman, Plantscaping

Steve and I worked together on dozens of deals over the course of 15-plus years. Steve’s knowledge, including his understanding of the company, his practical approach, accessibility and his fairness/attention to controlling fees made him our go-to attorney. I was always confident that Steve paid attention to the details yet kept the big picture in mind. I highly recommend Steve.

Thomas Kolb, Country Pure Foods

Steve Sneiderman has been representing our company for over 8 years. In that time he has become a valuable asset for our company. We depend on him in many facets of our business, and he never fails to impress. We have relied on his talents in tasks including company operations, ESOP transactions, acquisitions, and expansion opportunities. We would have no hesitation in recommending him; he is a true professional.

Michael Graf, The Paquin Company

Steve Sneiderman has been my attorney for almost 18 years. He has counseled me on buying a business, selling several businesses, starting several businesses, as well as contracts of all shapes and sizes. When it comes to business, I don’t sign a document until he approves it. In a life-changing negotiation, when emotions run high, Steve has the innate ability to make complete sense of the chaos, usually in a few well-articulated bullet points. I have been fortunate to always have him on my side.

Michael Boehringer, Boehringer Capital

Referring another professional to one’s own client is something never done lightly. I have frequently referred Steve Sneiderman, without qualms, to my family business clients and to companies on whose boards I serve. His professional skills are top-notch and, just as important, his listening, understanding, and persuasion abilities are superb.
