I hired steve as a lawyer for purchasing an apartment. In my case, there were an extra amount of details to go over and he and diana were able to navigate everything smoothly. particularly diana was always available to explain what was happening and where we were in the process. in addition to being clear and concise, she was fun to talk to, which in dealing with stressful stuff like nyc real estate is a real plus, since half the battle is your state of mind.
I would recommend them.

I was referred to Mr. Ebbin's office by a piranha of a lawyer in Westchester who had been highly recommended to me. He said that given my property was in Brooklyn, he recommended that I work with Mr. Ebbin, of whom he thought highly.
Mr. Ebbin and his staff (I spoke most frequently with Diana) were responsive, knowledgeable and friendly. It turned out that our closing required a very capable team, as we ran into one hurdle after another. They not only handled the legal work, but they advised us on a host of other issues, so that we always knew our options.
We were buying directly from owners, who were quite difficult and who tried to back out of the deal several times. Mr. Ebbin saw to it that that didn't happen. Additionally, the owners didn't really know what they were doing and as we didn't have a realtor to help, the law offices stepped in to explain dynamics to us (we were first time home buyers) and smooth out the process. They never complained about the extra work. They were always a joy to communicate with and when the going got rough, they stepped up their efforts.
After all the work that they had done, I braced myself for a giant legal bill. I was glad to see that it was fairly priced.
I feel very bless that I was able to work with them. I've always sought to work with capable people, and everyone I interacted with in that office was just that. I guess Mr. Ebbins feels the same way, because in addition to his considerable ability, the people under him are great.

Mr. Ebbin's office kept us informed during the entire process. They were very responsive and cleared any questions or concerns we had as clients and in negotiations.

Steve Ebbin is an excellent real estate lawyer. I hired him in 2012 for the purchase of my COOP in Brooklyn. He and his awesome, knowledgeable assistant, Diana, helped me through a very complicated and long process. They made sure that I was thoroughly informed about everything , down to the smallest legal detail. They addressed all of my questions and concerns in a timely and professional manner. Throughout the process, which took several months, I was at ease, knowing that my interest was protected and fairly represented by Steve Ebbin.
I'm a very satisfied client and I highly recommend Steve to anyone who wants an experienced, thorough, and knowledgeable lawyer.

I highly recommend Steven H. Ebbin. I recently used his services on the purchase of a co-op apartment in Brooklyn. I found himself and his team to be very professional and very knowledgeable of New York City real estate law. He made what is usually a painful and confusing process, actually pleasant. It was truly a pleasure to work with him, and I certainly plan to use him again on any future deals I might have. I also want to note that his paralegal, Diana is the best in the business by far. She is equally as knowledgeable, organized, and accessible at all hours of the day or night. She never made me feel that any question I posed to her was beneath her or a waste of her time and prepared me for every step in this process. The two of them together make a great team and in this wacky world of real estate you need a good team in your corner.

AMBA, are you sure you have reviewed the right attorney? I have used steve on numerous occasions as have members of my family and we have been nothing but 100% satisfied with his work and his staff. He is always available when an issue arises and it's a pleasure to call an office and actually have a live person answer the phone!

Have used Steve Ebbin multiple times for a variety of real estate transactions. I have always been totally pleased with the results. He is totally honest, up-front, knows his field extremely well (better than all the attorneys he's faced in his work for me), and gets great results. As anyone who may have dealt with lawyers in these modern times, honest and up-front are not the first two words that typically come to mind. It is truly a pleasure to work with him, and I certainly plan to use him on any future work. He also has a great and knowledgeable office staff.

Steve is a detailed-oriented sharp attorney who watches out for his clients like a hawk without losing sight of the objectives of his clients. Steve is the model real estate/deal lawyer. He is urgent, very knowledgeable, very persuasuve and sees clearly how to solve obstacles in the way of closing. When I was working on a large family real estate sale I brought on Jeff. He is the best.

Steve Ebbin and his assistant helped me with both the closing and refinancing of my home. They were both highly professional and extremely responsive. Both Steve and his assistant went above and beyond to help me. I had many questions and they were very patient. Both dealings I had with them went very smoothly and I was quite satisfied. They are a great team. I have recommended them to many of my friends and family and will continue to do so.

Steve H. Ebbin is the worst attorney I have ever had to do a business deal with. I work in the legal field myself and am used to dealing with attorneys and professionals at all levels. Steve is not one of them.
First of all, he funnels 95% of work to his assistant, who shares his same lack of professionalism. Second, he has a highly inflated sense of self. The few times where he actually addressed me, he always did so condescendingly, as if I was so lucky to even be in communication with him. Third, he did not push my deal along, instead, he delayed it due to his personal objections with the attorney on the other side of the deal.
Bottom line is that there are better attorneys out there. Do not waste your time or money with Steven H. Ebbin.

Steve's office recently handled a real estate transaction for me, and I was very happy with the service I received. He has an extremely knowledgeable & responsive staff, and he himself made the process very simple for me. I will definitely contact him the next time I have to buy or sell property.
