Richard previously represented us for a real estate purchase. We were very satisfied so recently, we engaged him again for the sale of our condo in Hoboken. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and responsive. We highly recommend Richard to anybody searching for a Real Estate Attorney.

I was referred to Richard by my realtor. From the get go, Richard was informative and very responsive. He makes you feel comfortable with the entire process which is a HUGE plus when you are purchasing a home. This was my 1st home purchase and with Richards counsel i was guided through the entire process , which actually made it bearable. Richard, being the efficient attorney that he is, helped us complete our closing in just over 30 min. Great experience. I would recommend Richard with out hesitation.

Rich represented my wife and I in closing on our first home. Rich guided us through the process and was able to close the transaction smoothly and in an incredibly tight time frame. He worked with the other side to structure an early close which allowed us to get into the apartment before a new addition to our family arrived.
In addition to recommending Rich to others, I have had Rich help with the preparation of a will. I reached out to Rich to get a recommendation from him for preparation of a will and was happy to hear that he was able to help with it.
Rich is responsive, his rates are reasonable and his work is excellent.

I was referred to Mr. Devita by my realtor because I needed an experienced lawyer who could handle a complex short sale. From the onset, Mr. Devita made me feel comfortable and advised me every step of the way, which eased my anxiety about the whole process. The deal took approximately 9 months to close and was something that I had been trying to accomplish for several years. Although the deal almost fell through several times, Mr. Devita was able to find creative ways to keep it alive and ultimately make it a win-win for everyone.

Richard was our lawyer in closing my apartment in Hudson Tea building. In my experience, he was absolutely fantastic. Right from the begining, he was ahead of the game; worked behind the scenes to get all the documents in place; gave me excellent advise when the deal was going sideways, and reassured me with great suggestions on issues related to the purchase. He worked with my broker, mortgage broker and bank to ensure a timely and painless closing. Great guy!

I've used many attorneys for real estate transactions in the past and Richad was by far the best I've ever worked with. He always had my best interest in mind and fought to get me the best deal possible. He is bright, attentive and always went the extra mile to ensure I was properly informed. I'd reccomend him in a heartbeat.

Richard was a god send during my closing process. I had a number issues with my mortgage company and bank and Richard was extremely helpful through out the entire process. He kept me updated every step of the way and helped my first home purchase go smoothly. I definitely will use Richard again in future home buying purchases.

Rich was recommended to me by my real estate agent after I agreed to buy my first condo in a low-rise buillding in Jersey City, NJ. He quoted me a fair transcational price and was patient to explain the steps I could expect during the home buying process. While it was helpful to know that Rich was located close by in Hoboken, the vast majority of our communication was handled via email & phone. He kept me informed of the status of the proceedings and aware of deadlines as they approached. He also made sure that the mortgage company held to their commitment dates. On several occassions the seller/seller's attorney attempted to make modifications to the sale agreement post-attorney review period and Rich handled these situations professionally with full understanding of the law and my rights & interests. The sale closed on time with no major issues. Overall, it was a pleasant experience working with Rich and I would recommend his services to anyone in need of a residential real estate attorney.
