Alex is a great lawyer. I have used him for a few real estate issues I am very pleased.
He is Experienced trustworthy honest and knowledgeable and highly recommend him to anybody who's looking for a lawyer.
I am very happy with Mr. Paykin personality, he is smart, quick, intelligent and hark worker. I am trusting him, his Judgement and recommendations.
Alex truly went the extra mile when he came to the scene of my accident. Besides the care and attention he offered right away, he was also very helpful with all the legal complications that quickly pursued my mishap. As fast as it happened he worked with me to ease through the court procedures and promptly solve my ordeal in a more than favorable way. He was charismatic, insightful, and I am so grateful for his help. Highly recommended!
Alexander helped me recently with a delicate and complicated legal matter. He was extremely professional, intelligent and I valued his advice. I highly recommend him.
I spoke to Alex on few occasions in regard to various matters:
Recently, I retained Alex to handle one of my business matters. I made my decision to hire Mr. Paykin after discussing the case with 2 other attorneys but not being fully satisfied with their answers.
I feel, I made the right decision. Alex delivered the results as agreed at the initial meeting.
Alex Paykin is an aggressive but in the same time a very professional and capable attorney.
It is definitely a smart idea to have him in one's corner.
Phone# on file with the office.
Alexander paykin was very helpful and knowledge in a situation i had. he gave me sound advice and i was grateful for his professionalism and personal interest.
I had issues with a landlord with whom I agreed to a particular move-out date, but then who immediately sent me an eviction notice for a date much earlier. I immediately looked for a lawyer and that's how I came to meet Alex. (Alex was referred to me by a friend.)
My first call with Alex lasted 45 minutes and Alex patiently listened to my complete explanation to the situation and then Alex advised me on several different approaches that we could take. Alex immediately saw what my landlord was trying to do (which was to get me in front of a judge and get me out earlier than our verbal and handshake agreement) and together we decided on a path to avoid that.
In the end, I settled with my landlord and recovered all of my legal fees and got to stay in my apartment for a time period acceptable to me.
Alex's style is to cut through all of the noise and simply ask "What is your goal?" With that in mind, he crafts a legal plan to get there.
Alex has responded to my emails and calls even on the weekend, and with detailed responses showing his command of the law. Also, Alex's legal documents were clearly superior to those by the counsel hired by my landlord.
If I need legal help again, I'll go straight to Alex again. And thus I recommend his services to others.
Despite his youth, he is very experienced attorney and he knows his area of expertise. I recommend doing business with him, because he is very honest, trustworthy and easy to cooperate.
As an author, journalist and former BBC programme executive, I have had many interactions with lawyers in my career relating to libel issues, intellectual property rights, personnel matters and general issues relating to my personal life. While living in New York, I have, in my role as President of the Coop in which I live, sought the advice of lawyers on behalf of the apartment owners.
I feel my cumulative experience of interacting with lawyers allow me a little more scope that most to offer thoughtful opinions about that profession.
One of the lawyers I grew to respect here in New York was the lawyer, Alexander Paykin.
On first meeting him, he struck me as a serious young man with a fine appreciation for detail and an ability to quickly grasp the underlying issues in matters we discussed. As time passed, I quickly learned he was not only intellectually gifted but had an ability to direct his talent to the law as it related to a wide range of issues.
Some of his obvious qualities included his ability to be patient and to present advice in a clear, meaningful way, avoiding the kinds of abstractions and complexities that would likely confuse someone not entirely familiar with the exigencies of the Laws as they related to their concerns. He can prise open issues with skill because he is a good listener. That, I contend, is a quality befitting a lawyer one can learn to trust for guidance.
He has acted on behalf of myself and my wife.
I have had no reservation recommending his professional skills to friends and acquaintances alike.
