Had just closed on the sale of a house. I live out of state and Carmine handed everything in a professional manner. He kept me informed through the entire process and explained everything along the way. Would definitely hire him again. Went above and beyond what I expected.

I have come across Carmine's profile online while searching for an experienced real estate lawyer for purchasing a foreclosure property. I feel lucky that I made the right choice. Carmine has the experience in the area, passion for his profession, and care for his client. He even worked over time and over the weekend to ensure the closing was done on time (a delay due to a mistake made by the bank). He took care of the things that was left behind by the seller even after closing for me. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a lawyer with professionalism and handle the whole transaction himself .

We found Mr. Lofaro by Googling real estate attorneys and read his excellent reviews. We decided to use his services because of those rave reviews. In the past in dealing with real estate attorneys, those firms had their paralegals handle everything, but this time around, we wanted an actual lawyer handling our closing and real estate transaction. Mr. Lofaro was impressively and quickly responsive to all our questions, e-mails and phone calls. We never waited long for him to respond to anything we sent his way. He was professional, courteous, and pro-active in dealing with our entire real estate transaction from beginning to closing. He allayed any concerns we had. Not only that, he never made us feel as though any of our questions were silly or unimportant. At our closing, Mr. Lofaro was very prepared and efficient; thus it was quick and painless. We have been through two other closings before and neither of them were as impressive as his handling of ours. My husband and I were VERY pleased and we highly recommend using Mr. Lofaro’s services. If we ever need an attorney again, we would definitely use Mr. Lofaro’s services again without hesitation. He did an excellent job, made us feel super comfortable and explained every last detail to us. Use his services without hesitation!

I write here today to express my sincere appreciation towards Mr. Carmine LaFaro. I highly recommend him to all that wish nothing less from exceptional services. From the moment of my first phone conversation with Mr. LaFaro I knew I wanted him to represent my case. I found myself in need of legal representation when I realized my husband was trying to sell our family home and take the profit for himself. Although we were married when we obtained the home due to financial issues at the time he and solely him was approved for the mortgage and subsequently his name was the only one that appeared on the deed. Although many have told me that this is against NJ laws, it happened to me. After 11 years of owning this home we decided to place it on the market during which time my husband and I separated. During the closing process my husband kept me in the dark and near closing date, I became aware that the attorney hired to handle the closing was in the complete dark of my existence and that of our three daughters. I called Mr. LaFaro who immediately after meeting with me took great interest in my case, made essential phone calls, follow ups, kept every single email and record, and kept me informed throughout the process. He made sure that my name was added to the deed, that I be present for closing, and that under no circumstance was a check to be written solely to my husband. Retaining his services gave me peace of mind, he handle my case with such high integrity, diligences, and professionalism. He kept me informed throughout the process. I'm so thankful to The Lord for allowing Mr. LaFaro to represent me. I felt so at ease to know that he was there advocating and protecting my rights. Due to his professionalism and insight we were able to close with both parties being very happy with the outcome.

Carmine LoFaro is a superior lawyer. I trust him (as a person) and his counsel (as a professional) implicitly. How often can you state that about a lawyer? From my initial call to him, Carmine was immediately helpful. Carmine has been helping me with a family matter and throughout has been compassionate, communicative, and decidedly knowledgeable and competent. In all exchanges, he is an assuringly "quick-study" who "gets it." His intelligence and knack for getting the full picture quickly enables him to readily dive into the pertinent details, honing in to what is the point. A 10-minute call with Carmine is worth hours of assistance because he is so proficient and sharp. And yet, he's not off-hand or 'short' -- each exchange with him leaves me feeling very satisfied there are no loose ends. I believe this is based on his core belief that he can best help his clients by being efficient. He’s not into dragging things out to benefit himself. It’s clear he truly has his client’s best interests at heart. Carmine can be elegantly graceful in his written correspondence, with a beautiful "soft touch" and yet he can also be a pit-bull (I've no doubt) when that's warranted. He's the full package with a virtuosity that serves the situation (and client) in their best interests. I have read all the other reviews and I couldn't state it better myself, each description has me nodding my head in agreement, that's exactly my experience too.

My family and I were in a terrible predicament this past year. We almost loss all hope of starting a new lease on life until we met Mr. Carmine LoFaro. Upon our first meeting, we were well aware of what we could expect from him and this was very reassuring. As time progressed he always kept us informed and updated in the most professional manner which could be expected. In closing, he helped me resolve my problem and for this we will be eternally grateful. Thank you!

I have used Mr. LoFaro twice for real estate transactions and highly recommend him. He is extremely responsive to all inquiries, great with follow-ups and explains every aspect of the process in terms that are easy for a layperson to understand.

Carmine LoFaro is one of the finest lawyers there is. He's the only one that I can count on and that's why I have used his services more than once. He is a very dedicated individual and possesses high work ethics. He thoroughly communicated with me throughout the entire process, which is important. I have had other lawyers in the past who would hardly return a phone call. Carmine made me feel like I'm his only client no matter how busy he is. He answered my emails almost immediately, even on vacation. He is very professional and pays attention to details. He gained my trust and confidence immediately. I can't imagine working with anyone else after working with him. It's no surprise that he is highly recommended!

My fiancé and I are first time home buyers. From my first phone call to Carmine's office, I felt completely assured that he would be the right person for us. Patty transferred me immediately to him and he spent about half an hour on the phone answering my questions, giving us advice and was thorough on explaining the entire process. Mind you, other R.E. attorneys I had called rushed me off the phone or never called me back. As for our experience in its entirety, Carmine is not just another "lawyer." From the very beginning, he advised us on what was right for us, responded to emails within minutes, called us back with answers right away often times outside of work hours, was always ahead of everyone else in terms of the paperwork or requests that needed to be made but simultaneously gave us honest advice which all attributed to our trust in him. He is a stand up guy that really cares. He has an excellent reputation for a reason. As for his fee, he is worth a lot more than the fixed rate that he gives. Be mindful that others will charge you random 'paperwork/postage' fees. In the end, thanks to Carmine we are in our new home and are just so happy we had him representing us and we have been recommending him to everybody we come across that is buying a home.

It was so refreshing to meet someone who still believes in giving good service with a smile and does his job for the love of it and not the money.
We feel so lucky to have found a great law firm to represent our company and our personal legal issues.
I highly recommend Carmine and his partner Glenn for any of your legal issues.

We recently retained Mr. LoFaro for a sensitive residential real estate transaction. During our initial consultation it was clear that Mr. LoFaro was a very experienced and skilled attorney and the right person to handle our matter. He took the time to listen very closely to the details of the situation, and understood exactly what needed to be done. He took action on our behalf immediately and began driving the process forward. Because of his swift action and ability to work well with the sellers counsel we were able to get the property under contract in just a few days. Throughout the entire process Mr. LoFaro was on top of every single task and keep us informed regularly. One of the things that stood out to us was the proactive manner in which he communicated to all parties, and the fact that we never had to "follow up" or "chase him down" for anything. He was very thorough and handled every aspect of the transaction efficiently and professionally. We have worked with other attorneys in the past, and Mr. LoFaro is one of the best we've ever dealt with. We will definitly use him for any of our future legal needs, and would recommend him to family members or friends in need of an excellent attorney.

Mr. LoFaro is an outstanding lawyer. Very professional, knowledgeable, charming, and responsive. He takes great attention to detail, is very respected by his peers, and was a pleasure to work with. I have since referred my sister to him as well. This is the guy you want on your side. Trust me. Would use his services again in a heartbeat.

Carmine has represented me and members of my family in various matters over the past several years, ranging from criminal defense and litigation to business matters, traffic tickets, and family law. His knowledge of how the is appled and interpreted makes his advice spot on. He will tell you which matters he believes are worth pursuing, and which should be left alone, without any regard to his practice's own interests. He knows how to resolve criminal and civil issues to his clients' benefit and uses his experience and professional relationships on his clients' behalf. His discretion equals his judgment and integrity. I will continue to use Carmine and strong recommend him to those who have not yet have the privilege of his representation.

In addition to possessing outstanding legal skills and sterling character, Carmine is a consummate professional, smart as a whip, caring, resourceful, extremely honest, explains legal matters in easy to understand terms, and is a tireless advocate for his clients. I recommend him without reservation - especially if you need to prevail.

Carmine Lofaro is a superb attorney that not only acts upon his promises, but commands respect among his peers as well as the judges in the courtroom. HIs preparation is second to no one and he treats his clients, as well as the others in the courtroom, with the respect they deserve. If he takes your case, you know he will do everything possible to better your situation because he cares more about the people than any monetary cause. He has a fabulous practice that has a long history of success.

As a real estate agent for over 22 years I've had the opportunity to deal with hundreds of lawyers during my career and without any hesitation I can honestly say that Carmine Lofaro stands head and shoulders above the rest. Right from the start Carmine's extensive knowledge of the law and attention to intricate contractual details allowed me to feel comfortable knowing that he was in charge of protecting and skillfully representing every client I referred to him over the years. Every one of those clients I have referred to Carmine over the years have always come back and thanked me for referring them to such an outstanding professional. I have personally witnessed his uncanny ability to be as ferocious as a pit bull when he needs to protect his client and at the same time be as smooth as silk when he needs to negotiate delicate matters to his client's benefit.With my business experience, I usually don't refer too many people since it can come back to bite you in the back but in this case I have no hesitation referring everybody to use Carmine Lofaro's services, I'm sure you'll be glad you did!
