I found Stuart in this website rated very highly, I called him to talk about my case and his attention to detail and the legal; direction he pointed me to before even getting hired by me was commendable. He is extremely thorough and does a very good job of handling everything. Would definitely recommend his services.

Stuart is an exceptional lawyer with a keen sense of intricacies and genuine interest in clients. I worked with Stuart twice with my current case. Stuart left my previous firm to start his own after drafted and filed the complaint. I was very much impressed with his understanding of the case, given the case was fairly complex and he had only one conversation with me. I contacted Stuart two years later to get a second opinion on the status and strategy of the case. To my surprise he still remembered much of the intricacies of the case. He spent some time to study the documents and called me back with really good advices, which prompted me to decide to hire him as my counsel. The decision was not only based on his professional experience but also the feeling that he had a genuine interest in my actions and treated me as a partner to win the case together.
I met Stuart a decade ago — and he helped me save my business. We’ve worked together ever since. There’s no one else I trust. Not only is Stuart a great lawyer, he’s also a great guy. More importantly, he gets results. I recommend him without reservation.
Stuart handled the whole negotiation process in a complex asset purchase agreement which was simple, to the point and very well drafted. Comes highly recommended for business transactions.
In February 2016, I engaged Mr. Melnick and his firm to represent me and my company in connection with the defense of several commercial leasehold disputes. Within a matter of days, and much to our satisfaction, all of these disputes were resolved – on the most favorable possible terms. Mr. Melnick currently is representing me in connection with other matters, and I recommend him without reservation.
I was a named defendant in an action alleging defamation and other misconduct. Prior to my meeting Mr. Melnick, my case was pending for a period of more than 2 years, at considerable cost and expense – and toward no end. Upon the recommendation of a colleague, I terminated my relationship with former counsel and engaged Mr. Melnick to represent me. Stuart was a breath of fresh air. He immediately went on the offensive and, literally, within a matter of a few months, negotiated a highly favorable settlement on my behalf. And throughout, he was a gentleman and consummate professional. I recommend him highly and without reservation.
I messaged Mr. Melnick and he reached out to me within hours. During our phone consultation, he presented me with a number of reasonable options that I can explore to help resolve my issue. I appreciated his honesty and respected his opinion.
