what our clients' say

Monaco Villas

My Homeowners Association worked with the Stein, Sudweeks & Stein firm in an attempt to recover for water intrusion behind our building’s siding. Stein, Sudweeks & Stein first helped identify all of our historical insurance companies (going back to the 1980s), evaluated their responsibilities, then submitted claims and sued the insurance companies that would not cooperate. The firm worked diligently to maximize recovery for our Association. I would highly recommend these attorneys.

Woodlake Condominium Association

My Association contacted Stein, Sudweeks & Stein after receiving a water-damage investigation report calling for repair of all the balconies in our community. Daniel Stein worked with us to identify the historical insurers of our Association and then sought recovery from those property insurance companies on our behalf. We are very satisfied with the outcome of our case. We highly recommend these attorneys.

510 Ward Street Condominium Association

An intrusive investigation revealed big problems for our small Association. Stein, Sudweeks & Stein helped our Association find missing insurance policies; answer insurance company examination under oaths; and guided us through both the claims process and litigation. Our Association ultimately recovered about 90% of the repair cost. We want to thank Stein,Sudweeks & Stein for helping us to obtain this great recovery.

Eastbridge Condominium Association

Even though our property was 30 years old (124 condo units), at the time we won a settlement from both insurance companies that helped us start a 5 million dollar repair project.

- Zoe Allen Eastbridge Condominium Association

Bellevue Manor Condominium Association

Knowing how long law suits take, we thought it would take years for our case to resolve. Fortunately for us, we hired the right attorneys (for our collapse coverage case against insurance companies). If you are looking for trustworthy professionals who can deliver great results in a relatively short period of time- look no further!
