5.0 stars 8 totalReview Scott Lanin
I have known Scott for about 8 years now. I met him after having bad experiences with several attorneys in connection with an investment property I own in the Bronx. I had reached a settlement with my lender and sent them an agreement and payment but the lender tried to foreclose anyway. Scott filed papers with the court in a contested case and helped get the case dismissed. It was an amazing result!
He is very experienced and knowledgeable and always protects my interests. With his help, I've been able to collect rent from my property for many years and the legal fees were minimal compared to my rental income. He also offered me flexible payment terms. He always takes the time to explain things clearly to me and has been very easy to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney for litigation, foreclosure, or business matters.
Scott L. Lanin has superior legal skills, valuable work experience and is a highly recommended attorney. He is personable, well rounded, intelligent, honest, efficient, knowledgeable about law, an independent thinker with good judgment and strong communication skills. He has a keen understanding of litigation, the mortgage markets/related issues and has earned my trust and confidence over the years. He has excellent listening skills, treats people with respect, cares about clients and will work hard and smart to achieve the best results. Scott L. Lanin is highly recommended.
I consulted with Scott on a bankruptcy/collection matter. He correctly advised me not to pursue it as the odds were stacked against me and emotion would not make it work. He was correct 100%. None of the creditors that filed against the company were paid and he wound up saving me thousands in legal expenses that I never would have recouped.
I hired Scott in the latter part of 2008 to represent me for a loan modification and /or Foreclosure. It's now 2015 and Scott has done an excellent job protecting my interests. I am not sure what the ultimate outcome will be, but, Scott will be protecting my interests all the way.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Scott Lanin for over 11 years; however, he has represented my company since the inception of his firm in 1999. Over the years we have worked together on many different types of cases, each unique in their own way. He has been instrumental in helping to recover large debts and equally effective in counseling me through difficult contracts and legalese. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law, yet has the ability to explain it in a simple, comprehensive manner. While Scott is more versed in the law than I am he listens to my comments and ideas about approaching a case and never forces us in a direction that I am uncomfortable with. Scott is attentive to the details involved and is thorough and responsive in his replies --this is an asset not easy to find but immensely appreciated. Scott is a professional who is dedicated and eager to assist. If you are seeking counsel, I highly recommend Scott Lanin. You will not be disappointed.
Scott did a fabulous job. Scott helped us understand the tools available to encourage our lender to negotiate a restructured mortgage rather than foreclosing. The ability to slow the process enough to re-enter the workplace and build up our earnings again while simultaneously negotiating with a lender taking foreclosure action was the difference between staying in the same home, sending the kids to the same schools and drastically restructuring out lives. It wasn't easy, but it wouldn't have happened at all without Scott's help. The fees were fair, and well worth it.
Until recently, I had never experienced the emotional journey of suing anyone, much less a member of my own family. The timing couldn't have been worse. I lost my partner of 25 years and, several months later, my 10 year old dog. Although I was at the lowest point of my life, I had no choice but to hire an attorney to help me fight for what was rightfully mine. Through a recommendation, I hired Scott Lanin, of Lanin Law P.C. I was treated with respect, was always in the loop and never felt condescended to - all things I hold dear. In the end, I, along with other family members who also inherited the property, won a hard fought disputed case, fair and square, through a court ordered sale of property, resulting in an unanticipated and surprisingly high auction price. I never expect to have this experience in my lifetime again, but if I do, Lanin Law is a no brainer!"
I hired Scott lanin and he was very honest and very knowledgeable about handling my modification. He took his time and experience to handle my case. I had a nice experience with his paralegal Diane who is professional and courteous and responded to my needs as a client.
