“John Kennedy has been my business attorney since the incubation of my first startup. John Kennedy and David Lee have always treated my business with great professionalism, and stood alongside it’s growth into prosperity. They have always treated me like family and not just a client. As an entrepreneur, creative and media personality; I am not an expert in law. It has been a relief to have experts by my side that I can trust with a business that is my life.”

“As the president of a local non-profit, I sought out David Lee’s expertise a couple of years ago. He guided me and my school through some turbulent times with skill and grace. David is deeply knowledgeable regarding so many aspects of the law – he inspires confidence and hope even when situations are troublesome. Not only did he and his team guide the legal process to a favorable outcome, he spent the time to truly listen and respond to my concerns. David is a lawyer who truly cares about his clients.

“I retained Lee, Shome, and Kennedy to handle my start-up business paperwork. I am an attorney, specializing in a completely non-business related area of law. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of service I received, especially from John Kennedy. LSK, and John, were attentive, helpful, communicated well, and always answered my questions. They were able to put together all of my initial business paperwork, and file everything with the Secretary of State. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. I was even at the bank on a Saturday, to open my business account, when I realized I did not have all of the necessary paperwork with me. I was able to call John Kennedy, who was able to retrieve and immediately send over all the paperwork I needed to open the account, on a Saturday! To sum it up, this is a very professional firm, that provided me excellent service. I have, and will continue to recommend this Firm to anyone looking for a business attorney to handle their business-related issues.”
