"I went through a really difficult situation with my last employer that left me completely distraught. I felt hopeless and only sought help at the encouragement of my husband. So I contacted the Lipp Law Firm. David Moon and his paralegal, Eileen O’Leary were assigned to my case. They were not only incredibly compassionate towards my situation, but they fought hard for me. They were strong advocates on my behalf and made me feel cared for and defended. Every time I had a question or concern they would respond immediately and were excellent at explaining the legal process. I always felt heard and like I was in control and able to make decisions about my case. The outcomes of my case were a complete win for me, and I could not be more thankful for their dedication, professionalism, and kind spirits."

"Our company recently hired the Lipp Law Firm about a contract and business matter. The discussion about our options and how we should proceed was well thought out. This issue was resolved expeditiously and without significant cost to the Company. Attorney David Moon provided excellent insight and advice and his litigation paralegal, Eileen O’Leary, was professional and responsive with updates and the Company’s requests. Lipp Law provides a great service to its clients and the value of their counsel is outstanding."

“I contacted this firm from a referral and they have been outstanding. I spoke with the owner and she knew exactly what I needed and how to help. She put me in touch with a fellow in her firm that got right on top of my work and has been excellent at communicating and following up with me. Even if there are no changes he follows up to keep me informed. It’s been a very good experience so far and I would highly recommend this firm.”

A Satisfied Client


"Mr. Moon was very professional, knowledgeable and respectful while he helped me deal with my legal issues. He thoroughly explained all the legal implications of my case, gave me appropriate advice and guidance as needed, while always being sensitive to my needs. He was extremely prompt in responding to calls, emails, etc. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Moon with regard to employment issues. I would not have had a positive outcome without his interventions on my behalf. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Moon through this most difficult period, and feel should I need further representation in the future, I would have no hesitation hiring him to represent me again."

"We were involved in a landlord/tenant dispute in which Mr. Moon handled our case with the utmost amount of professionalism. After the other side (landlord) did not accept our settlement proposal we went to trial and won in all aspects. The amount of knowledge and preparation provided was leaps and bounds beyond what we expected."
