We first opened our doors on Main Street in Lawrenceville in October of 1977. The firm was founded by three friends – Barry Szaferman, Arnold Lakind and Jeffrey Blumstein who worked together in the Attorney General’s Office of the State of New Jersey. Steven Blader joined the firm a few years later as the fourth named partner. We were at first a general practice firm, representing just about anyone who sought our assistance. Since its founding the firm has grown considerably, adding lawyers and developing specialty practices while remaining true to a core set of ideals – zealously protect the interests of our clients while maintaining the highest ethical standards of professional practice. When, in 1984, the firm outgrew its modest space on Main Street, we relocated to our present home at the Quakerbridge Executive Center.

The attorneys of Szaferman Lakind strive to provide True Counsel to all our clients through every step of the legal process, both personally and professionally. This is a commitment we make to each client on every matter entrusted to us. But what does True Counsel really mean? To us it’s more than a collection of words. It is a pledge of high quality, efficiency, ethical standards and compassion. Our attorneys serve as advisors, confidants and strategists.  We work with individuals, businesses and corporate executives who are faced with family, business or personal challenges. At other times, our guidance or “counsel” is sought to chart a path to an identified goal. No matter the circumstance, our clients seek our counsel and expect creative, efficient and cost effective solutions to achieve their goals. To exceed that commitment means that our counsel – advice as well as performance – must be true.

Each client expects that the advice and counsel we provide and the services we perform will be exactly what the situation requires. Our advice must be accurate and our execution precise. Advice or performance which is wide of the mark is not “true.” To provide True Counsel requires that we deliver upon our pledge of quality, efficiency, ethics and compassion in every encounter. It is our goal to meet or exceed the expectations of our clients and to provide True Counsel all the time.

Let us show you what True Counsel can do for you.
