"Over the last few years, we have employed Irwin Weltz for a variety of functions. No matter what the issue may be Mr. Weltz responds in a timely and proactive fashion. His ability to think out of the box is second to none and has literally saved us millions of dollars. Irwin also sincerely cares about his clients. I cannot say enough good things about this man, he is simply the best!" T.A.
"Irwin Weltz was referred to me by a former colleague who worked as the Deputy General Counsel for a large, multi-national broker-dealer located in the New York metropolitan area. I had requested a referral for an attorney to handle a complicated arbitration that my firm was involved in." G.C.
"After a very negative experience with another law firm, Irwin was truly terrific in every way. He cared, he was responsive, and he guided me through a difficult time with compassion and expertise. In the end, he was successful as well in settling the lawsuit favorably and allowing me to restore focus and energy back to my family and business. I am truly grateful to Irwin and highly recommend his services." F.S.
"Irwin is the best. He successfully represented me in a number of matters, including an employment dispute. He was attentive to every aspect of my matters, always available to speak with me, gave me great advice and fought hard for me every step of the way. You want Irwin on your side!" I.S.
