Can't thank Mr. Raevski enough for the stellar work he's done with my bankruptcy claim. He's incredibly professional and is highly knowledgeable in many areas of the law and its inner workings. He is very courteous, prompt, organized and attentive to your specific situation. The end results are exceptional. He definetly scores a 10 in the "Attorney for the People" category. I couldn't be happier with my choice having Mr. Raevski representing me. I highly recommend him. Thanks again, Ivan, for helping me out!

I had a difficult time finding an attorney who would speak with me without expecting an expensive consultation fee! Before retaining Ivan, he listened, and gave great advice. He did not expect a fee in return. I am a single mother with two children, and I cannot afford expensive attorney fees. Ivan worked with me and offered me a fee I could afford. He helped me through a very difficult and emotionally draining situation. He was very attentive towards me, answering every question and concern in an expeditious manner. My case was handled very well in court, and the judge ruled in my favor. I highly recommend Ivan. I do not know what I would have done without him, and I am truly thankful to him for all he has done to help me through such a difficult process.

I hired Mr. Raevski to represent me in a debt collection lawsuit and got the best possible outcome. I had previously entered into a settlment agreement with a bank through a collection agency. I made several payments and was not able to complete payments because of a change in collection agencies. The bank sued me for the entire balance on my account. Mr. Raevski was very knowledgable and did what he promised for me. He was responsive to my questions and quickly settled the matter out of court. He understood the seriousness of the situation, but made the experience much less frightening for me. I highly recommend Mr. Raevski.

Very helpful, straight to the point, and honest. I was charged with shoplifting and Kohl's sent me a civil demand letter which had be stressed out. He helped me with the legal advice and I'm stress free now not having to worry about them. Thanks a lot!

I was slapped with a TRO by an ex girlfriend and i didn't know where to turn as i have never been in this situation. I posted a question here on Avvo.com and Ivan wrote such a long detailed response. It was so good, i wanted to talk to him over the phone after a second response to my question on here. Ivan was available immediately and made himself available to me throughout. He offered free phone consultation and he spoke to me as if i was an already paying client. He genuinely listened and gave some great advice with the information provided. Fortunately i got the case dismissed and didn't actually need his services officially, but he was ready to stand by my side if needed and having that is priceless, especially in a situation where I am such a novice. He gave me his rate and it is reasonable, without a doubt worth it if needed. I would not hesitate to refer Ivan Raevski to anyone that needs a lawyer in NY or NJ. Hopefully, i won't ever need his services but it's a great comfort to know he's there should a situation arise. Thanks so much Ivan, i really appreciated your time and willingness to help.

Mr. Raevski, knowing only the bare essentials of my case against a major Bank, gave me strong advice which worked out favorably for me. His advice centered on forthrightness, integrity, and truth. He supported my confidence to stand up, in court, against unlawful acts against me. This resulted in my direct dealings with the Bank's legal representative and, ultimately, the Bank not showing up in Court and taking a Default.
Mr. Raevski, in his advice, showed professionalism, a great deal of legal acumen, and INTEGRITY. He has my thanks and complete respect.

I was charged with domestic violence and simple assault when my ex-wife filed a false report against me.
Mr. Raevski was able to show inconsistencies in her story during the domestic violence hearing and the Judge dismissed the charges against me.
The simple assault case was also dismissed at a later hearing.

I was really behind on my bills and was sued by creditors. I met with Ivan to discuss my situation. He explained to me that I had several options to either settle my debt or file a bankruptcy.
Based on my situation I decided to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. Ivan had a flexible payment plan which allowed me to spread the payments over 4 months making it affordable. He was always available by phone and email.
I would recommend his services to anyone who is struggling with debt

My wife got a speeding ticket like we all do every once in a while. Raevski Law to the rescue! A couple of emails and faxes, a trip to court, Mr. Raevski doing all the negotiations and getting the best deal. On top of it all, having an attorney gets your case in front the line and saves you a lot of time. The end result â€“ quick court process, speeding charge reduced to a parking violation with no points, no implications for car insurance cost or threats to the Driverâ€™s License. My wife is a happy camper. Attention, respect and professionalism at reasonable cost and it is worth every penny. Next time Iâ€™m caught enjoying myself at the wheel I know where to turn (no pan intended).

I was going through a bad divorce and Mr. Raevski walked me through all the steps and was available whenever i needed him to discuss my case.
Really good communication, whenever I called his office, he would always get back to me the same day to discuss my problem.
The rates were very reasonable as well, I interviewed several attorneys in the area and they charged quite a bit more for the same type of work.
The case was settled in my favor and I received my half of the property, child support and alimony.
