What could be more important that having an attorney you trust? In the case of Stryker Slev, I’ve got two of them, available to advise me on my most challenging and complex real estate matters. Most recently, Stryker Slev helped me unwind a complex lease situation and then walked me through the myriad of issues involved in a ground-up development project in the beach area. What I value most in all of my business dealings and relationships is integrity. Monica Slev and Dennis Stryker are gold standard.
