    • I do not recommend Jay Fleischman.
    • I hired Jay more than 3 years ago.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    After contacting Mr. Fleischman’s email through this website (because I was being pursued for a false debt) I was sent a phone number for scheduling a fifty-dollar telephone consultation. I waited five days for the appointment and then planned my day around the mid-afternoon call. The call never came. I left a message with his office, and received no response. Not the qualities I would look for in a lawyer.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I don't know the identity of the reviewer, so I can't really tell exactly what happened here.

      I can say that it's our practice to meet with new prospective clients who need us, and to call in advance in the event that we can't make the appointment due to a last-minute scheduling issue (these things happen with lawyers from time to time).

      Though we do offer free consultations for bankruptcy clients, we have been charging a small fee for non-bankruptcy matters. It sounds as if there was definitely a miscommunication, and for that I apologize. Nobody should have to plan a full day around an appointment that somehow never materializes - regardless of the reason.

      If this person did pay the consultation fee then I will gladly refund it (I don't see any consultation fees in our system that don't match up with a completed appointment).

      If the person did not pay the consultation fee and would like to speak with me directly to set up something by phone then I will gladly waive the fee as my way of apologizing for the inconvenience.

    • I recommend Jay Fleischman.
    • I hired Jay more than 3 years ago.
    • Jay handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 11 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Jay handled my bankruptcy in 2004 and was fabulous. He explained everything to me in an understandable fashion and prepared me for what to expect. After my bankruptcy was finalized, he continued to be on top of my credit reports, making sure that all information was correct. He's totally on top of things.

    • I recommend Jay Fleischman.
    • I hired Jay more than 3 years ago.
    • Jay handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Fleischman represented me in my bankruptcy case.
    During free consultation he explained me all my rights. Everything turned out exactly as he estimated: the bankruptcy was granted to me, and I was even able to keep my car - the only valuable thing I have.
    I am not American born, English is not my first language. However, I had no problem communicating with him.
    My job keeps me on the move. So, there was a good chance for me to miss an important letter (from the court or from a creditor) coming in my home mailbox. Mr. Fleischman kept me informed by email - my preferred method of contact, the only sure way to reach me.
    After the conclusion of the case, after bankruptcy was granted to me, one of my former creditors kept on trying to get their (already discharged) debt. Mr. Fleischman helped me reach a fair settlement with that creditor without extra out of pocket expenses.
    If you have problem with your creditors and live in or around New York City, I definitely recommend Mr. Fleischman to you.
