"From walking into the office doors, meeting the kind receptionist, to approaching Mr. Desper himself, I was treated with respect, kindness, and understanding. I'm very thankful to have had the opportunity to sit down and discuss business ventures and also learn about how to engage this entrepreneurial journey legally. Starting a business is intimidating, and Mr. Desper, who cares about his clients for who they are and what they dream rather than their wallet, made these conversations easy. I recommend Desper Law Group to anyone who wants effective and direct answers to their legal questions."

This review is a little late, but it afforded me time to provide a truly accurate review with results!!

Gary helped me with an employer issue in 2014 (I wrote a review for that as well, 5 stars if you are having issues with your employer) and that had a phenomenal outcome. Because of that experience I decided to start my own company.

In April of 2018 Gary helped me form my company (by help, I mean he did everything and all I had to do was sign). From articles of incorporation to operating agreement and even referring me to a highly rated and trusted accountant.

Because of the quality of the operating agreement, legally the company is air tight. Along with that and other legal advice, the company has grown exponentially. We landed our first job in January of 2019 (after spending the first 8 months organizing everything) and in 12 months we have generated $1.2 Million in revenue, and legally thanks to Gary.

I have to say without a doubt Gary is the best from starting a company, to protecting the company and even protecting the company's employees. He knows Maryland's system very well from working in it and his navigation of the system truly shows.

"I sought out the services of Desper Law for small business matters. Gary is very knowledgeable with business law and contract terminology. In cases where others may have pushed towards costly litigation, which could last months, he instead worked to quickly seek resolution. He truely cares about the situation and puts his clients best interest first. The cost for his services are extremely reasonable. Thank you, Gary!"

"I had to settle a an issue with a large corporation (lowes) who i was contracted with to do work. after months of trying to get the work actually done and making payments on the work that wasn't being done i sought legal help, more as a motivational step. I met with Mr. Desper he is very friendly, professional, personable, down to earth God fearing man which made my hour with him very easily spent. while we talked he constructed a letter, gave me future legal advice, and was very human. within two hours of his firm sending a letter threatening void of contract i received a call from a third party contractor to set up a working date. this was something i hadn't been able to do for months of visiting, calling, and emailing the lowes store #0516 and corporate."
