    • I recommend Richard Gelfond.
    • I hired Richard more than 3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    We were so happy with Mr. Gelfond's services that I feel the need to elaborate on the previous review posted by us. His service stood in stark contrast to another attorney we had hired two years ago.

    Our reasons for hiring Richard Gelfond:
    a) Richard's practice areas, Real Estate, Litigation and Foreclosure, are the best suited for real estate deals.
    b) Multiple decades worth of experience.
    c) Excellent reviews on various websites.
    d) Picking up the phone himself both the times we called him initially.

    Our experience with Richard Gelfond:

    a) He always picked up his phone himself unless he was not in office. There were never any layers of secretaries or legal assistants. With the previous attorney, we always used to hit a bureucratic wall.

    b) Emails were answered promptly, quite a few times within minutes.

    c) We never had to push him to pursue any matter. In fact, he used to remind us if we lagged behind in giving a response!!! With the previous attorney, we had to keep calling over multiple days in order for a response to be sent out.

    d) During the attorney review of the real estate contract, I could not find any clause which he had missed. With the previous attorney, I had to suggest clauses.

    e) He kept us informed at each step, keeping us in the loop while communicating with various entities like the title insurance company, bank's attorney, surveyor etc.

    f) He always patiently listened to what we had to say, never loosing his temper.

    We can unequivocally recommend him as a real estate attorney and shall certainly hire him again and none else.

    We hired Richard as our real estate attorney and he did an excellent work on our house closing. It's very hard to find an attorney like him. Very responsive, trustworthy & knowledgeable:) I'll definitely recommend him to my friends & relatives. All 5 stars to you Richard from saraswat family !!

    • I recommend Richard Gelfond.
    • I hired Richard more than 3 years ago.
    • Richard handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Richard was a true pleasure to do business with. His attention to detail, responsiveness and professionalism are outstanding. We were able to conclude two very complex (for us) cases in a very timely manner. With over 46 years of experience in real estate lending, I have a good perspective upon which to base my highest recommendation of the services of Richard Gelfond, Esq.
