Ira represented me in two different matters and handled both of them exceptionally well. He is multi-talented. He assisted my real estate development group in reducing its real estate taxes on one occasion and was able to get me out of a jam on a speeding ticket on the Taconic as well.

Our family has used Ira for several real estate transactions. He was excellent. Very honest and reliable.

In the entire time Mr. Halfond was supposed to be representing me, I only saw him twice. The first time, when he told me he would be representing me; the second when he cheerfully announced that I had better take the deal that was offered (life shattering- and NOT for any kind of a crime) or fight it and invariably lose- I took the deal against my own will, THEN found out that it could not be appealed- fine print that Mr. Halfond had failed to mention. He didn't try to advocate for me, and even hung up the phone on me on one occasion when I had called to ask a question about my case. After my "day in court", he spoke about the entire thing within earshot of no less than 5 people that I know of- breaking attorney client confidentiality with a private conference room available only 5 feet away- then had the audacity to put his hand out for me to shake it when all was said and done.
Heed my warning- DO NOT trust this man with your freedom- and if he is appointed to you by the court, request someone else...
