Mr. Stark represented me this month and I'm so glad he was on my side. He protected me and my family from a relentless landlord. He knew every trick they'd pull and wouldn't let them get away with it. He counseled me gently but defended me fiercely. If you need someone who really knows what he's doing, call him. My family and I are really glad we did.
How frightening can it be when you are permanently disabled and your other half is a senior citizen still working and you receive a notice to vacate in one month even when you have never ever missed a rent payment that was at fair market value in over a dozen years of tenancy. Very scary stuff until I was recommended to Brian Stark. Just navigating the Bronx county courthouse was intimidating but Brian's representation for us against a formidable management company lawyer was noteworthy. We were totally overwhelmed with the whole situation and his legal advice and law knowledge and demeanor made it quite clear that we had selected the right lawyer to help us , and he did on all fronts, emotionally and physically were in a tail spin but he pulled us through with as fair a judgement that could be expected and a very reasonable fee for all the time ( and time is money) that he devoted to our case. My sense is we would not have had such a favorable outcome if we were represented by someone else. His office staff was great too!
Thank goodness for Mr. Stark. I had the most disrespectful tenants. They weren't paying their rent AND they were also vandalizing/defacing my property. My other tenants were actually considering moving because of my problematic tenants.
I went in to Mr. Stark's office and met with him. He was honest in explaining the different potential outcomes and I decided it would be necessary to attain his services.
Mr Stark evicted those terrible people in 6 months time and now I can relax.
JUST HORRIBLE. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS AGAIN WITH BRIAN A. STARK. I DEALT WITH BRIAN A. STARK FOR THE FIRST AND LAST TIME AS A LANDLORD AROUND 8/2012. HE DID EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THE WHOLE EVICTION PROCESS IN NYC WORKS. I THEM PAID THE $1000.00 FEE HE REQUIRED FOR A BRONX, NYC EVICTION. THE ONLY THING HE DID FOR ME WAS SERVE MY TENANT. SINCE THEN HE NEVER RETURNED ANY OF MY PHONE CALLS. THE ONLY CONTACT I HAD WAS THROUGH HIS SECRETARIES WHICH WOULD TELL ONLY TELL ME THAT MY CASE IS BEING PROCESSED. I DID GO THE THE OFFICE TWO TIMES IN PERSON WITH NO RESULTS. I KNEW FOR A FACT THE THE TENANT NEVER ONCE RESPONDED TO ANY COURT DATES GIVEN TO HIM. I UNDERSTAND THE NYC TENANT/LANDLORD LAWS ARE FAVORED TOWARD THE TENANTS. BUT, BRIAN NEVER ONCE RETURNED ANY PHONE CALLS OR HIS OFFICE NEVER KEPT ME POSTED ON ANYTHING. IT HAS BEEN 7 MONTHS WITH STILL NO CONTACT WITH BRIAN A. STARK AND NO PROGRESS ON MY CASE. AS OF 3/25/2013 THE TENANT STILL LIVES ON THE PROPERTY RENT FREE. I REFUSE TO MAKE ANOTHER VISIT TO HIS OFFICE IN PERSON BECAUSE OF MY TEMPER. MY PATIENCE HAS RUN OUT. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS AGAIN WITH BRIAN A STARK. Approximately 2 weeks after my review I got the eviction warrant from the city Marshall. i still haven't got any call from brian stark himself.
At my consultation Mr. Stark discovered that I was living in an illegal apartment. Mr. Stark was able to have all of my arrears waived and I was allowed to stay in the apartment 4 months rent-free.
My case was explained to me thoroughly from inception to end. I would highly recommend using this attorney for any landlord/tenant matters.
