Donald Pederson

"Mr. Axelrod has been my attorney for many years...he has counseled me through buying and selling two businesses, home purchases, legal disputes etc. In all this activity I have always felt he was always attentive to detail and worked out the best solution for me. And, he has a great sense of humor."

Wendy and Richard Levy

"Mr. Axelrod was very knowledgeable and thorough in the several business transactions in which he represented us. Besides the legal expertise he displayed, both he and his associate, Michele, kept a very open and efficient line of communication which was a very comforting quality during trying times."

L. Vincent Testa

"Mr. Axelrod is by far one of the most knowledgeable counselors I have ever worked with. He is one of those 1 in a million people who know what they are doing and seem to have it all memorized. Great guy, great value, great results."
