Matt helped make our first-time home buying experience a breeze. His estimate of closing fees was dead on so that there were no surprises at the table. He explained the process and answered all our questions thoroughly. Matt was quick to respond to any of our emails and phone calls. Our closing was a quick, smooth transaction with zero stress. We definitely recommend Matt to anyone who requires a real estate attorney.

Mr. Tannenbaum handled both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our house. He eliminated a lot of the stress for us by keeping us informed of every detail throughout the process. Mr. Tannenbaum was always available, day or night and even weekends, to take our calls or respond to our emails. Selling and buying a home is a very emotional and stressful endeavor. Mr. Tannenbaum was the consummate professional and guided us through without a hitch!

My wife and I had heard for years how stressful and agonizing the closing experience would be. Not so with Mr. Tannenbaum. From the moment we met to go through the seller's contract, he stayed on top of the transaction, explaining everything clearly and providing regular updates from his conversations with the sellers' attorney (there was never a need to chase for information). Mr. Tannenbaum often prefers to communicate by phone, which is an under-appreciated value add. This allows you to ask questions up-front, without the need for back-and-forth before getting the information you need. He and his staff are very organized and we could not have asked for a smoother transaction on the day of our closing. On a few occasions, when contract language was not in agreement with our expectations, Mr. Tannenbaum went to bat for us and set things right with the sellers' attorney. I would highly recommend Mr. Tannenbaum for any of your legal requirements. He made one of life's largest transactions an enjoyable experience for us.

I had a case in Nassau County but do not live in the area. I was able to pay for Mr. Tannenbaum's services long distance and he took care of everything for me in a very timely fashion. I didn't have to appear in court and his fees are reasonable. It was my first time hiring an attorney so I was a little skeptical going in. I expected to be overcharged and unsatisfied. He proved me wrong and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a straightforward excellent attorney who will get the job done.

The sale was smooth and everything was perfect. Matt was excellent and gave great practical advice. Ironed out all the details and made sure we closed as quickly as possible. Would definitely use again. My sister used him several years ago and she was very pleased as well.

The house we were selling was on Long Island, but the two owners lived in different cities hundreds of miles away from each other and from the property. Matt handled this geographical complication with ease. He did what was necessary to verify the title, and he succeeded in getting the closing to happen at a convenient date without the sellers having to attend. He really did a fine job.
The only aspect of this that was less than stellar was that he did not communicate by email as often as he said he would. That caused a bit of frustration along the way, but the ultimate result was that a complicated transaction done well and on time.
If we had to do it again, we would still hire Matt because of his skills, but we'd just pester him more often when communication lagged.

Matt was professional yet compassionate when handling my case. My mother appointed me Executrix of her estate and I was responsible for getting the house I grew up in ready for market. Matt was understanding and answered all my questions. He was thorough at closing, which just took place, and was pretty accurate on what the end results were. I would highly recommend Matt and plan on using him for additional legal services.
