About me

Whether I'm assisting a couple buying or selling a home, helping parents provide for their loved ones via estate planning, or counseling a client through a difficult divorce, my goal is always the same; to provide accurate and understandable information, and to help my client achieve their goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    I have know Jerry Lazar for a number of years in a number of roles and have found him to be professional. He is easy to work with and as a fellow real estate attorney that is not often said. He defends his client's positions and yet does it in a way as to not make the process adversarial. I would highly recommend him

    Jerry is a gentleman and a gracious and competent attorney. I have recommended clients to his office because I know the client's legal needs will be taken care of in a professional, kind and thoughtful manner. I am proud to be in the same profession as Jerry; he is a credit to the legal profession.
