I hired Rich to handle the closing on my condo. Rich was on the ball, keeping me up to date and addressing any concerns promptly as they arose. The process went very smoothly thanks in large part to Rich. I felt confident that my interests were being well represented.

My wife and I engaged Rich to help us with our first-time home purchase in Hoboken. He was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and provided excellent guidance that helped us successfully navigate every step of the process from attorney review right through to closing (which was very smooth and easy thanks to Rich's preparedness). Rich also went out of his way to find the right person in city hall for us to speak with about the tax abatement on our home and how it would be impacted by the purchase price (something that we tried desperately to figure out on our own but to no avail). Finally, he was incredibly patient and dealt graciously with our many, many emails, phone calls and never-ending list of questions. If you’re looking for an outstanding attorney to help with your home purchase, someone who will go the extra mile for you when needed, we HIGHLY recommend Rich.

We closed our first home in Hoboken with Richard. No complaints. Only things to watch out for : do your research and keep asking Rich questions along the process. He is generally brief in his responses but has good knowledge of local market and covenants. He helped expedite things when needed as well.

Rich worked w/ us on both the purchase and sale of our home. Great both times. Most importantly my wife trusts him implicitly and felt he was super easy to work with

Mr. DeVita is an outstanding attorney. He successfully handled my case against my accountant for business fraud. Mr D is an expert in these financial fraud matters and as such provided me excellent advice and recommendations. He is very focused and efficient. He gets to the key issues quickly. Mr DeVita is thorough in the homework he does. So there were no surprises. He effectively assesses the issues from all perspectives to arrive at the best approach that will prove successful. In addition, he is extremely well organized and an effective communicator when the legal battles begin. Mr. D does not over promise ... he is solutions driven. Finally, Mr. DeVita is very responsive to all phone and written communications. I rate Mr. DeVita as a A+ attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone.
not waste time with unnecessary or lengthy phone meetings.

Mr. DeVita provided legal counsel during the marketing and sale of our NJ home. He was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout this lengthy process. The guidance Mr. DeVita provided was highly ethical and fully compliant with NJ laws. He also provided valuable and insightful counsel regarding home inspection findings and necessary follow-up. He communicated very effectively with the buyer's attorney and our realtor -- always timely, on task and polite --- making for a smooth and worry-free closing. We would highly recommend Mr. DeVita's services.

Handled a real estate transaction and was chosen by my real estate agent who is from the area. Our relationship was by phone and email but under those conditions, admittedly not ideal he did a great job with the legal work. Kept the other side in line and treated me with the same kindness and attention I would have expected under more personal circumstances

My experience with Richard was a pleasant experience as I was a first time homebuyer and was not informed on the ins and outs of the closing cost. But Richard took his time to explain to me what my cost to close were going to be and walked me through it thoroughly. My closing was delayed a little bit but we finally closed and I have no BUYER'S REMORSE...I would highly recommend Richard DeVita...

Richard has been our lawyer in buying our very first condo in Jersey City. Being from India, I was very scared to buy a property internationally and was not aware of the legal formalities involved. He guided me through each and every step of the process, worked remotely during his vacation. He also saved us money by negotiating hard with the seller attorney. He helped us close at time and location that is amicable to us and I have to say that was a blessing. He has such command over the real estate law that even the seller attorney agreed to some of the clauses mentioned by Richard in the contract when the seller was trying to change the closing date. He helped us draft emails to the Bank when they were delaying the closing date due to compliance issues and helped me get my loan processed during the final closing phase. I will commision Richard for any legal issue that may occur in the future given my super nice experience. He is very nice, knowledgeable and gets the job done for the benefit of the client.

My wife and I just purchased our first house in Bayonne, NJ. My offer was approved 6 months before we actually closed as it was a "short sale". In that time period, Rich found, negotiated and explained 6 (SIX) outstanding liens that were on the house that we were unaware of. He was able to keep us at our offer price and walked us through the entire process without being aggravated by our many questions. I recommend that he be the attorney you use above all else. He made us feel comfortable, safe and got the job done perfectly. Thanks Rich!
