  • R. Bernstein, JD, New York

    “I am very pleased with the services I received from Max Krotman. I benefited from the opportunity to absorb the clients who had been serviced by the attorney who was suddenly retiring. The retiring attorney gained income that would have been lost otherwise. His clients obtained instant service and were not left to forage for themselves. And I was able to pick up some very solid long term business and referral sources that have added to my practice.”

  • M. Biggiani, J.D. New York

    I have been practicing for over 20 years and regard Max Krotman, Esq. as a trusted advisor who provides a wealth of knowledge to practitioners seeking to retire or to grow their practices.  His vast experience and training is a huge advantage to anyone seeking to retain him.

  • I. Grossbach, J.D.,  New York

    I can give Law Practice Connect a strong endorsement.  I have worked with Max Krotman for 20 years.   He has helped me with introductions to the appropriate people and then effected 2 successful merger/acquisitions for me that are working out for all the parties.  His ability to construct a simple, understandable deal and then supply readable acceptable documentation makes the process manageable as well as successful.

  • M. Alexander, J.D. , Connecticut

    I have only known Max Krotman for less than 2 years, but having worked with him intensively, I can strongly recommend his professionalism and sensitivity to the needs of our partners.  He works persistently, but without becoming pushy and offensive.   His attention to detail and his care about our long term consequences have been extremely useful to help us negotiate wisely and to process our own internal decisions.
