Mr. Stark is the most conscientious attorney I know. He is a dedicated advocate for his clients and his professionalism and ethics are beyond reproach. (Posted by a private practice attorney on 1/27/11).

5.0 out of 5.0
Mr. Stark was my adversary in three cases. He was able, diligent, honest and courteous. He got good results for his clients in each matter. Unlike a number of attorneys I have encountered who represent plaintiffs, he promptly responded to and served discovery, and aggressively sought out third-party witnesses and evidence. He is my number one recommendation when people ask me for a recommendation for a plaintiffs’ side employment lawyer. (Posted by a private practice attorney on 1/27/11).
