NYC Real Estate Attorneys
New York City Real Estate Attorneys
We are New York City Real Estate attorneys and this is the page where we typically tell you we’ve handled hundreds upon hundreds of NYC Real Estate closings that have included everything from a $150,000 co-op in Queens to a $8,000,000 loft in TriBeCa.
This is the page where we typically tell you our staff is experienced and welcomes your questions, and that your emails are responded to immediately.
This is where we typically use some adjectives to describe something about “value” and then tell you we’ll represent your interests in the transaction for a low fee. And while that may be typical, here’s what we think is important:
Approximately 80% of our clients are first time purchasers. We love first time purchasers. We love working with them. We love explaining the process of buying their first home. We love answering every question and demystifying the process, because the feeling we get when they finally close on the place they’ve been dreaming of, cannot be described.
We use software called Basecamp on our website that makes us efficient in what we do. We think it takes too long to get into Contract right now. We want to fix that. We see how our clients have benefited from doing things this way, which means we’re working harder and harder to ensure this keeps happening.
Our clients think that price is important, but not the most important thing when hiring a lawyer. We won’t be the most expensive real estate attorneys in New York, but we won’t be the cheapest either. We don’t shy away from that. Our fixed fee representation starts at $2500. We do not nickel and dime. We do not “surprise” you with a fee. We are upfront in everything we do, because that’s the way we think things should be. We are proud of the work we do, and we’d love to show you why.
Dan is an excellent lawyer. To paraphrase Kenny Rogers: he knows when to hold ‘em, when to fold ‘em, when to walk away, and when to run. He is intelligent, levelheaded, fair, has an excellent bedside manner, and is an unusually good communicator.
A little background: my wife and I retained his services in late summer 2013. My wife needed to sell her stake in an apartment she owned with her mother and stepfather from whom she was, and is, estranged. Dan asked us in the beginning of the process to be clear with ourselves about what we wanted to get out of the situation. Basically, we needed enough money from the sale to make a down payment on a house, and we needed the process to be as quick and painless as possible. (We have a toddler and wanted to get the proceedings over with and then get on with our lives). He never lost sight of our goals even when we did. In the end, he got us a good settlement, but even more importantly: he steered us clear of a morass which at the time threatened to consume our lives. To do this, he counseled us against litigation, depriving himself a great deal of money. My takeaway: he’s not just a great lawyer, but a real human being as well.
My wife and I are now disentangled from an awful situation, and in a home that we absolutely love. I’m so glad that we retained his services – this all could have gone very differently.
If you’re thinking about calling, do it. Even before putting your credit card number down, you’ll likely feel what I did when I first spoke to him: relief … and hope for the future.
I was referred to Daniel Gershburg by a friend. As a great believer in word of mouth - I find this the best way to find a professional :-) Unfortunately before I met Daniel I was burned by an attorney who did not do much but charged every minute he was talking with me. I did not appreciate that attitude, and was happy to learn from Daniel that he doesn't either. Daniel gave me a fair quote for my club's membership agreement - Sailors NYC. Daniel and his team worked professionally, meticulously and completed the job at a timely manner. I highly recommend anyone who is considering hiring him to go ahead with it. I will surely recommend my friends and family who will need legal services and plan to use him in the future. Keep on doing the good job!
I worked with Daniel on a Lawline presentation titled "Building a Law Practice Brick by Brick." Daniel is a great public speaker and a wealth of information for the legal community (oh, and one funny guy!) I have no doubt that he does great work for his clients in both the real estate and bankruptcy arenas.
