Mr. Schiller was my attorney for my recent co-op purchase. I was impressed by his knowledge, follow-up, and commitment to his work. I commend Mr. Schiller for his ethics, high moral character, and integrity.
Mr. Schiller provided me with legal advice on how to start up my business and was able to simplify the pro's and con's of different incorporated structures. Jordan is very knowledgable, has an easy going manner and does not rush his clients, is attentive to your needs and concerns, and provides clear advice. I would recommend Jordan to all my friends.
I live in a rent stabilized unit in one of the hottest rental markets in Brooklyn, NY. Over the last 5 to 3 years I noticed A LOT of changes, gentrification, etc. and a build-up of hostilities between Landlords and long-term tenants who had struggled to find proper housing during the downturns of the economy (2006-08) and were blessed enough to stay the course and make a real home in their now much desired locale. Unfortunately, I found myself caught up in contention with my Landlord who took me to housing court (holdover proceedings) without merit. It was stressful, devastating and traumatic to say the least. I never been to housing court before and this experience has changed my life.
When I received word that the Landlord was taking me to court, I became desperate and sought out legal assistance to help my case and was recommended to some "seasoned" housing court lawyers who only represented tenants. I presented my case to them and they took action on my behalf even though they were not familiar with the Brooklyn Housing Court terrain. Needless to say, they charged me premium legal fees and the retainer fees was WAAAAAYYYYYY out of my price range (remember I am rent stabilized and only fortunate enough to make a modest salary, living way below my means). I called around to the various Law organizations in the city and the Brooklyn Bar Assoc. referred me to Mr. Schiller...and thank God!
Mr. Schiller's rates are fair and reasonable, his legal advice and excellent knowledge of the Brooklyn Housing Court landscape (proceedings, other counsels, judges, etc.) is invaluable. Jordan is very easy to talk to, calm, collected, patient (the other side played tricks, delayed and dragged out the trial period, etc.) and professional in every sense of the word (responsive, informative and utilized multiple means of communication to keep me in the loop). We won the case but now I'm looking forward to the full restoration of legal fees, since this case was superfluous, unwarranted and costly.
I highly recommend Jordan Schiller Esq. and his legal firm for all the reasons mentioned above and more!! You cannot do any better in this tough NYC housing market. Best wishes!
I met Mr. Schiller in December of 2013 after I was being wrongfully evicted from my home and desperately needed legal representation to fight my case which turned out to be a very long and stressful battle.
From the first meeting with Mr. Schiller I was confident that he was the right person to represent me and his knowledge on every aspect of this case reassured me that everything would end in my favor.
Unfortunately we are still in court at this current date but again I have complete confidence in my attorney that all will end well in my favor once this case has come to its conclusion.
I highly recommend Mr. Schiller to represent anyone who's going through a difficult eviction, landlord tenant dispute or any legal matter that pertains to housing court.
He's a very professional attorney and caring person Thanks for all you've done Mr. Schiller.
I have had the great privilege to work with Jordan on a number of transactions/matters, each with great success for over six years now. Although not all of them have been "wins" they all got the results I felt appropriate. And that is the true pleasure of working with Jordan. He doesn't have his best interest in mind to get every last billable dollar out of the transaction, he has the clients interest at heart. He is an intelligent and insightful attorney with a great business sense. he is a pleasure to work with and takes special interest in his clients. I would recommend him highly. I have yet to meet a more thoughtful or loyal individual then Jordan. his unbounded intelligence and entrepreneurial spirit make him an invaluable asset to myself personally and my entire team, who have the good fortune to work with him. Over the years I have come in to contact with many people. Some relationship are more memorable then others. My relationship with Jordan relationship will most defiantly be one of the more memorable ones. Growing my business has consumed my life for some years now, and its thanks to individuals such as Jordan that I am grateful and with dues for as he impacted, he helped, he enabled me to do what I need and not worry about things I shouldn't be. Simply put, Jordan got it. I am deeply thankful for all of his help, guidance and support throughout. I consider myself very lucky to have the opportunity to work together.
Jordan was extremely helpful with my recent mortgage refinance. He was helpful throughout the whole process. Not only did ee refer me to a trustworthy mortgage broker, he handled all of the paperwork as well. He was thorough and efficient and I would use his firm to handle any future real estate proceedings I may have. I would recommend, without hesitation, working with him.
Jordan afforded me a valuable internship experience with hands-on exposure to litigation and transactional work in varied real estate relationships. He pursues his clients' cases diligently, faithfully to the clients' goals, and with ingenuity. His very likable personality makes for a solid understanding with his clients and with those who work for him.
There are many lawyers out there who can help you purchase a new home but I am so glad that I went with Jordan's office. This was my first home purchase and Jordan helped me through the process in a professional and patient manner. He was available to answer all of my questions, even on the weekends. I highly recommend him for any prospective home buyers.
Jordan gets involved and brings real solutions to the table. I had a tenant die in my building two years ago. The apartment needed to be emptied and cleaned up. The stench was affecting my other tenants, including a bar restaurant. With his prompting the coroner's office issued a letter, in days, giving me possession of the apartment allowing me to straighten up the situation. Without his help it could easily have taken two months to get possession. At that point everyone in the building would have been sick.
I chose to name my review A "Regular" guy! with quotes on "Regular" to emphasis the fact that when you hire a counselor you want him to be all of the above yet humble enough so that he listens with a full ear and with that he gives himself the opportunity to analyze and realize the client and their situation. Mr. Schiller has that very unique trait, where he can do that and gain the upper hand by not second guessing the client or opponent as well. Just like in poker, you need that for the court room if you are a good attorney.
