What Our Clients Say

Ron Segev and his team have completely transformed my perception of a law firm and for the better. His firm fulfills the long overdue need for a legal team that is nimble, innovative, personable, creative, affordable and determined to help small businesses and entrepreneurs with implementing their business strategy. They are transparent and trustworthy. They help provide original yet practical solutions, think outside the box and display a genuine passion for their work above and beyond the status quo. They make all clients feel important – no matter how small the operation is. I have worked with legal professionals in countries worldwide and have yet to come across a comparable firm. Ron Segev is a refreshing example of a lawyer who enhances his clients’ businesses models and provides significant value rather than simply racking up billable hours. I believe that Ron Segev’s concept is an optimal example for other firms to strive for to meet the needs of a growing entrepreneurial clientele in today’s digital age.
