Stephanie D. Rauch-Mannino, Esquire, recently helped my husband and I get our Estate Planning documents completed. Stephanie was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. She made me feel welcome and comfortable. My husband and I were very pleased. I would recommend Cornerstone Law Firm and will definitely consider them for future use.


five red starsMy husband and I had the best experience with this law firm. Daniel was essential in helping us acquire our business, and was there every step of the way. Trust is so important with legal matters, and we completely trust Daniel to go to bat for us and to help our business succeed. Also, Jovan the paralegal was amazing as well! Great team at Cornerstone!

five red starsI worked with Attorney Joel Ready on a sensitive case; he was responsive, and very helpful. Everybody that I dealt with or spoke to was very professional, respectful, and polite. They did a great job and locked up my case in a few short months. I highly recommend them and if I ever need something in the future I will return to them.

I recently had some counsel from Joel Ready of Cornerstone Law Firm that provided professional and legal assistance to me in a time of need. I can attest to the intelligence but also the compassion that they have for those in need and having both of those attributes together is often a very rare aspect. I truly appreciate Joel and Cornerstone Law Firm!

They’ve been quite helpful to our company in helping with several transactions. It’s unusual in this day and age to have attorneys that we also call friends. Keep up the good work!


five red starsI contacted a few attorneys about assisting me with the probate and Estate process after my mother passed. Joel was very responsive and personable. He identified options and considerations that were not mentioned by the other attorneys. I truly felt he was working in my best interest. I chose to work with him and will definitely be using him for my own estate planning in the future.
