He was very professional and had the knowledge of what he was doing and i thank him a lot.

James Fishman and his office came to my aid in removing a lien placed on me due to an erroneous State claim that had nothing to do with me at all. This successful effort on my behalf proceeded speedily and professionally. A paralegal on Fishman's staff stands out in particular, Ms Lacey Andrews, whose style was gracious and her work exceptional.

I cannot recommend James and his firm highly enough. He is an asset to the entire NYC community.
James made a very tough situation easy, straightforward and seemingly effortless. This is due to a number of factors. First, he is extremely knowledgeable - more knowledgeable than any other housing advocate of legal aid person I contacted (and I contacted everyone I could find). He uses that knowledge to ensure you fully understand your case and the options, the legality and the pitfalls. Also, with that knowledge he is able to strategize options and tactics for the best possible outcome - for me an outcome better than I even thought possible.
Second, he is supremely fair, ethical and honest: from the outset he made me feel at ease securing his counsel: his rates and methods are fair, and he made it clear that - while he couldn't guarantee anything - he wouldn't take on my case if it wasn't in my best interest.
And it was in my best interest: prior to securing his counsel, I had sought advice from a number of advocates and pro-bono legal clinics, all with differing advice. I later learned that none of their advice would have stood up against the other side, nor worked in my favor. Mostly, though, I was fearful of the other side's quite nasty tactics (which I experienced prior to securing his counsel). James made everything seamless and painless.
James was able to use his in-depth knowledge of the law and his confidence in himself and the law to develop and execute a unique strategy that landed everything in my favor. The case was over faster than I imagined, and the outcome was remarkable.
I HIGHLY recommend James and his firm. The entire staff is knowledgeable, helpful and effective. Anyone would be blessed to have him on their side. His ethics and efficacy are an asset to the entire legal industry, and to the overall public.

A friend recommended attorney James Fishman when my landlord attempted to evict me from my apartment in a fabricated non-payment case – and the court had served me notice with little time to retain a lawyer and defend myself. Mr. Fishman’s outstanding knowledge and timely responsiveness was not only a great mental relief, but the outcome he achieved was better than expected. It is critical to note that Mr. Fishman’s formidable reputation is recognized not only by the tenants he represents, but by the judges and opposing counsel before whom he has appeared. And because he has blazed trails in tenant advocacy to ensure that tenants who are harassed by landlords are not blacklisted, he remains a champion long after his retainer has ended. I’m glad he was on my side and would recommend him to anyone suffering from a predatory landlord.

James represented me against a powerful landlord in a mold case. He is a smart and extremely knowledgeable attorney who knows his law. In an intial meeting sitting accross from an army of the landlords attorneys, James took control of the situation and would not let me be pushed around or intimidated. He was firm with them yet professional. The end result being a settlement I was pleased with which enabled me to replace my belongings and begin the process of getting my health back.

Mr. James Fishman is an attorney with Fishman and Mallon. He represented me in a suit filed by a debt collection agency. Throughout the duration of the case which lasted for almost a year, he and his staff kept me updated on the status of the motions he filed in court. I never appeared in court with his full representation. His excellent knowledge in consumer law led to the dismissal of the case and recovery in full of my legal expense from the Plaintiff. I highly recommend Mr. Fishman for debt collection disputes and will hire him again without doubt if I get in another debt collection predicament.

I hired Mr. Fishman when I got notice that my landlord intended to evict me from my rent stabilized apartment. I believe the type of case I was being threatened with is typically not easy for a tenant to contest and it did not appear at first that there was much I could do to fight back. However, Mr. Fishman is very, very highly skilled and knowledgeable. He was able to successfully negotiate a settlement with the landlord's attorney on my behalf without going to court.

James Fishman, attorney at Fishman and Mallon, represented me when my landlord threatened to evict me from my rent stabilized apartment in New York City. Mr. Fishman and his staff handled my case with patience and understanding and, most importantly, with superior knowledge of the laws involved and extensive experience with tenant/landlord disputes. The case was settled without litigation which was a positive outcome for all parties. I highly recommend Mr. Fishman for tenant/landlord diputes.

Extraordinary, exceptional, even the Judge in my housing case noted she was highly impressed by Mr. Fishman's knowledge of the law, his preparedness, and his professionalism. As one of New York's celebrated Top Lawyers in the state, Jamie is absolutely the best of the best. His abilities in the courtroom are unparalleled. The landlord's attorneys did not have a prayer up against Mr. Fishman. Whip smart, professional, and tough; Fishman handedly took on the battles that I had stupidly been attempting to fight myself. He didn't miss a beat in my case; was always three steps ahead of the Landlord's attorneys and his team's support of me as a client was precisely why I had retained him. You want to win your case with the best possible outcome - hire him today.
