She is an excellent lawyer! She helped me a lot with my P3 visa application. She also speaks fluently Greek and that was really helpful as my case material was mostly in Greek. She is gentle and kind and always willing to help. I highly recommend her for cases of immigration law.

I immediately felt comfortable when meeting Ms Someras. She was very knowledgeable with the questions that I had with landlord/tenant laws and succession rights. She explained everything thoroughly and addressed my concerns. I especially appreciated that I did not feel rushed during my free consultation. I hope I don't get to the point where I need her services, but if I do she is definitely the right attorney. Thank you so much.

I highly recommend Olga Someras as a landlord-tenant attorney for her honesty, practical advice and kindness. As a real-estate agent, I often need advice for myself and my clients regarding landlord-tenant relations. Olga understands all areas of real estate - rent stabilized/rent controlled apartments, section 8 tenants, market-rent tenants, etc. She will always give you her honest advice even if it's something the client doesn't want to hear. Her goal is to create a good solution acceptable to all parties. Unlike most attorneys who delight in dissidence and strife - Olga tries to create harmony in all situations. Go Olga!

I had my consultation with Olga regarding a dispute with my landlord. Olga was knowledgeable, professional, and very responsive. She gave great advice... Such great advice that I didn't need to use her services past the consultation which proves how honest she is. She wasn't concerned with making money off me but rather showed genuine concern for my situation and advised on the most cost effective way to resolve everything.

Ms. Someras saved me from a great frustration and trouble I was going through for over two years now with my landlord on a matter regarding my rental agreement and my violated rights as a tenant. Ms. Someras is a great professional and easy to communicate with. She immediately responded to my request for help and answered the phone every time I called her. She listened and understood my problem instantly. She gave me very clear and knowledgeable advise on all the steps we should take and gave me clear options to choose from that made me feel very comfortable with how we were proceeding. She was always there for me, answering all my questions with great patience, always very polite and generous with her time. She followed up on each step we took and kept me informed on every development in detail. Her fee is very reasonable for the time she spent on my case and for me it is the ultimate success that we were able to resolve the problem with my landlord without going to court or even hurting our relationship. On the contrary, Ms. Someras re-established a relationship of trust between my landlord and me as I feel secure and protected and he respects me more. I learned a lot from Ms. Someras and I trust her 100%. Ms. Someras is the absolute first choice of a lawyer. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Olga on numerous landlord/tenant disputes during my time as a property manager at our company. She has successful experience working on a great variety of landlord/tenant issues ranging from arrears, evictions, apartment and building violations, Section 8, rent stabilized and rent control litigation, etc. Olga has years of experience as legal representation in housing court, as well as out of court through numerous legal document and contract preparation. I would highly recommend her as a Real Estate attorney, especially in New York City where she is extremely knowledgeable and professionally experienced in all aspects of NYC Landlord/Tenant law.

Olga is a 100% competent attorney. My dealings with her were primarily engaged in real estate, both litigation as well as transactional. In court she maintained a much stronger, more savvy presence than our other previous representation. In terms of strategizing , Olga proved to be both creative and resourceful. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to enhance their chance at a positive outcome for their legal needs.

BEING IN NEED OF LEGAL INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE, I TURNED TO OLGA SOMERAS. FAMILY MATTERS TEND TO BE EMOTIONAL AND DIFFICULT. MS. SOMERAS PRESENTED LEGAL INFORMATION IN AN EXACTING AND CLEAR MANNER, SO THAT I COULD DIGEST IT AND PROCEED IN A CALM, CLEAR NON-EMOTIONAL MANNER. SHE PREPARED A LEGAL DOCUMENT THAT MY SIBLING AND I COULD DEAL WITH. I WAS FEARFUL THAT HE WOULD COMMENCE LITIGATION. I HAVE A DEGREE OF PEACE OF MIND AT THIS TIME, DUE TO MS. SOMERAS' GOOD WORK.

I consulted with Olga on a tenant-landlord issue. Olga's expertise in this field was invaluable in helping me to quickly and successfully resolve the issue with the landlord. Olga is always very responsive, professional, and knows her stuff. After I provided Olga with information concerning my issue, she quickly provided me with advice and information that would have taken hours of research for an attorney without her level of expertise. I would not hesitate to use Olga again for any landlord-tenant issue.
