Testimonials

I would like to thank Steve Fenster, real estate attorney with Schwartz & Fenster, for an outstanding job he did representing me in a litigation regarding a $10,000,000 1031 Exchange representing the buyer and the collection of my commission. Steve was extremely knowledgeable and methodical in every aspect of this case plus he gave me tremendous support and guidance throughout especially in selecting the best Mediators, Expert Witnesses and Judges in order to negotiate the very best Settlement. The case recently settled in my favor during the Mandatory Settlement Conference and my commission was wired to the bank on May 24th. Steve is truly the consummate real estate attorney! Thank you so much, Mike

I am very grateful to Stephen Fenster, who is a business and real estate lawyer with the Schwartz & Fenster firm. He was very kind to take my unscheduled call and to spend 15 minutes of his time, allowing me to pick his brain. It was about a relatively basic, but important and urgent legal matter pertaining to the purchase of a residential property. His words were very clear and helpful.

Thank you to Howard Blum for helping me determine the feasibility of seeking damages against a former colleague. This former colleague had been conducting side deals with a number of my first clients with US Vet Wealth. He traded on the credibility of our name and our story to convince these clients to fork over large sums for services that were never rendered. Howard was more than generous with his time in helping me determine the proper course of action in ensuring that I took appropriate steps to prevent this guy from contacting other clients of mine.

Thank you to Gary Minkin for taking the time to help educate me on a tax efficient premium financing strategy for those clients with large insurance needs who lack the requisite liquidity to self-fund high premium Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts (ILIT's). He also took some time to help me modernize some of my marketing materials. It is a testament to both his expertise and his correct understanding that success is not a zero-sum game.

Thanks to Eugene Kim for putting me in touch with one of his clients, a cannabis distribution organization with the goal of helping veterans get off of addictive prescription drugs in favor of cannabis-based solution. I look forward to helping them mitigate their Section 280e limitations and I look forward to watching their company grow with great interest. They spoke highly of Eugene as well.

Thank you Tina Kaufman at Insperity for your comprehensive HR and benefit guidance with my client. As a start-up business, they did not know what they did not know. Walking them through the basic needs and legal requirements as they begin hiring new people will help them be competitive and successful.

Jay McDowell, MBA, President of Performance Strategies and Host of All Cities Network Santa Ana, referred my online marketing company to the owner of a spa with two locations in the South Bay. Jay McDowell helps business owners increase revenue and profit, manage costs, and build high performing teams. The spa owner is experiencing a decline in sales because of increased competition. Jay prepared the spa owner for my call and positioned my company in a favorable light, so much so that she is open to my suggestions and advice. The spa owner and I will be working together within her budget to design marketing and sales campaigns to increase business. Thank you very much, Jay, for putting in the extra effort on my behalf. You are a class act!
