    Unprofessional

    Hired jack several months ago to handle a simple custody case. He responded to my initial call for consultation very promptly. At the consultation he assured me he would be able to meet my needs as a client and I gave him a check. I never heard from him again. Three weeks later. I called and emailed several times, when he finally got back to me he explained he should have never taken my case because he was too busy, but he would make it work. We met again and I had to repeat everything from the first meeting because he lost my notes and could not find the email I sent him at his request detailing the whole situation out. After 6 weeks he finally decided to get the ball rolling on my petition which was well written but too little to late at this point. Long story short he did nothing that he said he would do and displays no confidence in the court room. It was as if I had no lawyer at all I looked like a fool.

    Jack Richard Lebowitz’s response: “I regret this client did not have a satisfactory experience. I try to explain on my website and in our preliminary consultations that as a solo practitioner doing work at reasonable rates, it is sometimes difficult to do work as quickly or control workflows as either I'd like or the clients would like. I try to explain it typically takes several months to initiate a custody case from the initial interview to the drafting and filing of the petition and the first court appearance. Whether taking three weeks to six weeks to prepare and file a petition is a long time or not is a matter of perception, although I do understand to that client it is a very important and urgent matter. Custody cases are typically not as "simple" as the client might see them from their own perspective, because there usually turns out to be two sides to every story. When disputes between parents land in Family Court we are all at the mercy of third parties to resolve those conflicts and things sometimes don't go the way that either the lawyer or client hope. We can try to advocate and present the facts, but we don't make the facts or, more importantly, control the perceptions of the key players, such as the Judge and the Attorney for the Child. Additionally, although the reviewer chose to be anonymous, I also believe this matter involved a petition to retain primary physical custody and move out of state which I tried to explain during our initial meeting would probably be difficult to achieve given the applicable law (Matter of Tropea v. Tropea, 87 N.Y.2d 727) and the practical need for the other parent to consent to such arrangements and alternative visitation (e.g, summer/winter vacations) which he chose not to do after we proceeded with filing the petition. Thus, our options to modify custody in a significant way were limited by the law. Still, I regret that I can't please all clients. I offered this client a fee adjustment (partial refund) in light of the results which disappointed her and would urge her to contact me to discuss.”

    A+ Attorney, A Pleasure to Work With

    Jack had helped me get through a number of matters including, but not limited to, a separation agreement, a divorce, and related custody issues leading to trial. He had kept me informed and responded to all my emails and phone calls in a better than expected timely manner. He was very respectful, personal, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. His payment options were very suitable for my financial needs. He has helped me through it all and I highly recommend Jack Lebowitz to any one in need of an attorney.

    Extremely responsive and well rounded

    I hired Jack to represent me in family court this year and he was more than helpful. He is very easy to talk with and was very understanding about my current financial situation. Jack always made me feel comfortable and always responded to emails or phone calls almost immediately. His writing skills are impressively present and well organized. Overall he was an honest, straightforward attorney who was able to achieve the goals necessary while keeping me in check, but remaining sensitive to the issues at hand.

    Jack Lebowitz recently helped me with a zoning legal matter, fulfilling and exceeding all of my expectations. With close to 40 years of experience, Jack has the depth of knowledge and expertise to ensure that his client’s needs are met to the fullest extent. Jack not only impressed me with his effective writing ability but his commanding presence in front of Zoning Board speaks volumes of his confidence. Jack provided me with great direction and advice throughout the entire process. He’s always in your corner and battles for you every step of the way. He makes you his top priority from the very beginning when you first retain him. You will not find another attorney that is more passionate about his work than this man. With that said, I highly recommend Jack Lebowitz without any reservation on any legal issue you’re involved in as he goes “ABOVE AND BEYOND” his Call of Duty for his clients.

    Satisfied Defendent

    I did not know Mr. Lebowitz until he agreed to represent me. His initial consultation was free and his fee's very reasonable. He responded to all my emails and phone calls without delay. Having him online for questions and payments was a big plus. He kept me informed and I'm satisfied with the outcome.

    Family Court Litigation

    Jack helped me with a relocation petition that I filed with the Washington County Family Court. Leading up to the filing of this petition I had handled all of my previous proceedings with the Court without the assistance of counsel. Jack was a joy to work with. First and foremost, he worked with my budget and was extremely fair regarding my payment for his services. Second, he was the epitome of responsive. My emails were always promptly answered; he always made me feel like I was the highest of priorities for him. Finally, his knowledge of family law litigation truly made me feel confident in my case.

    I recommend the services of Mr. Lebowitz to anyone looking for a responsive lawyer who makes his client a real priority.
