Client Reviews

“Alexis is positively brilliant. She exhibits great skill and knowledge to bring her clients excellent legal experience, creativity, and business acumen. Beyond that Alexis brings a tireless approach everything she does and a refreshing friendly and direct communication style.


Her professional approach is only outweighed by her sincere willingness to determinedly “do whatever it takes” to advocate for her clients, all while ensuring that they completely understand every step of every stage of a matter, or to put it more plainly educating them during the process.


Having worked with many attorneys in the past, it is easy to say that her attention to detail is unmatched and her research and meticulousness is exhaustive. She know what it takes to support her clients to make sound business decisions and her responsiveness is truly impressive. Overall, Alexis is a valued business partner and trusted advisor who of the highest caliber and an absolute joy to work with.”

“I discovered my business was damaged, and was not sure where to turn to or what legal remedies if any were possible. I turned to Tempus Fugit, and after a brief interview of my situation, I was told I had a case. A video meeting followed, with Attorneys Schipani and Hamdan, the key points were gathered and they quickly put together a course of action. I was hand-held and assured through the entire process, as I had never been in such a predicament before; Attorney Alexis Hamdan consoled me through the entire process as we worked as a team to bring about a quick resolution. I can’t thank Alexis enough for her candidness, tenacity and professionalism. I would highly recommend Tempus Fugit.”

“Attorney Hamdan’s background in Federal Court came to bear on our case. She worked extraordinarily long hours on our case, burning the midnight oil to meet super tight deadlines weeks on end. She was an outstanding communicator breaking down legal lingo into small bites with real-life examples and analogies. Her broad experience in business law proved to be invaluable as negotiations with the opposing side required creative negotiation skills and out-of-the-box solutions. Attorney Hamdan’s uncanny use of legal research and ability to speed-read were critical to the case. Attorney Hamdan looks at the legal settlement of business cases as business transactions. She gave us food for thought to weigh the costs and benefits of every decision we made. Her legal advice was always given from a legal and business perspective while communicating candidly with us and assessing the case realistically each week.”

“Alexis Hamdan is awesome! She is extremely responsive and goes above and beyond helping me (the client) understand everything. She is always looking for anything she can do to make things easier on the client.


Gil also cares about his clients and keeps a close eye on everything helping wherever he can.


I highly recommend Tempus Fugit!”

“I worked with Alexis Hamdan on a past employment matter. Alexis dove right in and provided solid guidance to bring the situation to a swift close. There were times where she challenged my thinking to make me focus on what was really important and not winning every battle, which I needed at the time. Forthright and responsive. This is the 2nd time I have been helped successfully by Tempus Fugit Law.”

“Thank you, Tempus Fugit Law for working with my family. We worked with Gil Schipani and Alexis Hamdan, and cannot say enough about the positive experience we had working with them. Now that our legal dispute has been successfully resolved, we want to express sincere appreciation for everything Gil and Alexis have done in bringing about this very positive result for my family. We were extremely impressed not only with their legal and professional skills but with the very pragmatic and personal approach they brought to every one of our calls and emails. Perhaps most importantly, the sense of urgency and responsiveness throughout our engagement was exemplary. We are so thankful we chose Gil and Alexis at Tempus Fugit Law to represent us.”
