Finding a good lawyer is not easy. When my friend referred, Jerrold Lazar, my instinct told me that he is the lawyer who could help me collect money from my Ex with regards to my daughter's college expenses. Jerrold was very professional. He will listen to your problem and help you find solution in an amicable way. If the other party does not agree on a topic, he will be honest about it. The solution to my problem was a 50/50 share of college expenses. Jerrold is also reliable, good listener, patient, understanding and accommodating. He is the kind of lawyer I would recommend to my family and friends.

Jerry is very easy to work with. He understands where you are coming from an helps you with every step of the process. Jerry was our lawyer when we bought our first home. Needless to say, we had a lot of questions and Jerry provided the answers. I will certainly utilize his services again when needed and will recommend him to everyone.

Jerry was very committed to our difficult Real Estste case. He was quite professional. He went above and beyond what we'd expected. Very knowlegable. Always kept us well informed. Jerry is quite patient and polite. Made us feel that our case mattered to him. Will recommend to all our friends. Would not hesitate to work with him again.

I sought out Jerry based on the reviews for him I read on the web. I am so happy that everything I read was correct. He helped me with a difficult situation, post divorce involving one of my children who was headed to college. He was caring, professional and courteous on top of being a brilliant Attorney. He really listened to what I had to say, and when I mentioned that my daughter had questions as well, he actually took the time to talk to her and make sure she understood what would and would not impact her. I felt as if Jerry treated me like a family member as opposed to a client. I felt he always had my best interest in mind and took the time to help me understand things that were not always clear to me.
I gave him the highest recommendation possible on this site, but it does not even come close to explaining that he is not just a great Attorney but is a really caring human being. If you need legal assistance, you will not go wrong hiring Jerry!

Jerry was prepared, thorough and obviously very experienced throughout. We felt very lucky to be working with him.

Jerrold Lazar is the most qualified lawyer i have ever used. He is caring and considerate and always keeps his word. I could not have hoped for a better lawyer to handle our personal case. Mr. Lazar keeps in touch with you and lets you know all the details of the case. He has a great personality and puts you at ease!!

Mr. Lazar was not aggressive at all. He did not listen to what I was looking for. For example, as the case went on he suggested we seek for something specific and I told him that was what I was looking for the whole time so I wasn't sure he was paying attention to me as his client. I needed an attorney who was going to treat me as a person and not a case or a $ sign. My case was dragged on for quite sometime and of course cost me more money than initially suggested by him. My case could have went better than what it did, but I don't feel he worked for me as he should have.

Jerry was well educated in the process of purchasing a new condo and kept us up to date and on schedule for an on-time closing. I would absolutely work with Jerry again should the need arise and highly recommend his services

We have used Jerry for 3 real estate transactions. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and timely. He communicated with us often to make sure we were always "in the loop." He is very proactive, so we never had to worry! He always kept our best interest in mind and did whatever it took to get the job done! (When one closing took a turn for the worst in the final hours, he even somehow pulled off some magic to make sure it happen on time!) On top of all else, he has a great personality and is a pleasure to deal with!

I have been lucky to use Jerry's services twice now - one for home purchase about 2 years ago and then again for the same home sale recently. Jerry offers guidance to the real estate attorney review process. He is able to explain little quirks that may occur (and usually do) in home negotiations and make you feel comfortable while it's happening. I also know Jerry from a networking organization - Women's Council of REALTORS - in which he is beloved as a valuable resource. I would recommend Jerry to the highest opportunity.
