What Others Are Saying

When I met Paul, I was immediately put at ease by his friendliness and approachability. Many attorneys, I have found to be distant, disinterested, and distracted. This was not the case with Paul.

After a few conversations, I felt like I was in the presence of a consummate expert in contract law. Businesses need agreements to succeed. However, business owners like myself just don’t have the legal knowledge to draft agreements that will NOT come back to bite us. So, he encouraged me to ask him questions, and I realized how much we all need a counselor to protect our businesses before entering into a bad agreement. As I continued to work with him, I began to see the incredible scope of his expertise. It includes but not limited to proactive prevention of commercial disputes, corporate planning, contract drafting and negotiation, and resolution of commercial disputes. He educates and protects. I wholeheartedly recommend you and every business to talk to Paul, ask him questions, and bring him on your team.

I retained Mr. Appel to represent me when I ran for the board of a high rise condominium. The group that had been in charge had a reputation for “dirty tricks,” and I was immediately faced with a fabricated criminal charge based upon false claims of illegal campaign activities. Mr. Appel devised a strategic plan which led to the public withdrawal of the false charge and my election to the board. Numerous members of the condominium, including lawyers, commented on the high level of skill, imagination, and professionalism that Mr. Appel brought to resolve this difficult situation. I could not recommend him more highly.R.
