An Alternative to the Mega-Firm.

Many people are intimidated by the thought of choosing a lawyer from one of Washington’s many large law firms.

And with good reason. For the most part, the large law firms are dedicated to serving large clients (with deep pockets).

Fortunately, there is an alternative. The Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg.

The Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg is dedicated to the principle that bigger is not always better. Instead, it rests on a tradition that actually antedates the rise of the “mega-firm”-the solo practice. Emulating a country lawyer in a big-city environment allows Mr. Sternberg to provide more individualized service to his clients, and, at the same time, pursue more collegial relations with other members of the Bar.

A 1983 graduate of Georgetown University Law School, Mr. Sternberg has extensive experience many areas of the law. He is “Av” Peer-Rated* by Martindale-Hubbell, the national lawyer rating organization, and is listed on their “Register of Preeminent Lawyers.” He has a 10.0 Superb rating from Avvo.  Among other honors, he was named one of the “Best Lawyers in Virginia” in 2000 by Virginia Business magazine.

Since 1984, Mr. Sternberg has dedicated his practice to representing individuals and smaller businesses. For those corporate clients who have larger needs, he is affiliated with the Metropolitan Washington Law Consortium, PLLC. While the Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg has three offices for client convenience, there is only one lawyer: Mr. Sternberg himself. As a client, you benefit from a close relationship with the one lawyer handling your case-and the assurance that your work will never be delegated to a recent law school graduate. If your matter requires multiple areas of practice and a limited practice, such as tax or immigration law, Mr. Sternberg can get you to the lawyers he knows to be the best through MWLC.

So take a few minutes to look through our site. And see how The Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg can be a very effective alternative to Washington’s mega-firms.
