Great Estate planninig experience!
We worked with Warren Hurwitz to prepare our estate planning documents for both myself and my wife. Warren did an excellent job. He was very responsive and answered all of our questions timely. Everything needed to complete the planning was done and there were no hidden charges or additional fees. We will be using Warren again if we have any other legal needs and I highly recommend Warren for yours

Estate planning and wills preparation
We hired Warren to advise and develop our estate plan for the family. if you have experience with this process it is complex and detailed. He prepared our Living Trusts, wills, health care articles and gave us confidence and assurance that we are prepared for the future life events, without transferring the burden to our family. thank you Warren!

Great experience in two cases
First contacted Mr Hurwitz for application to the state's contractor fund. He walked us through the process and at the end we got the payment. Went back for estate planning and the experience was the same. Thorough and painless.

Excellent experience with Warren Hurwitz
My husband and I were very happy with the level of expertise and customer service with Warren Hurwitz. He handled our estate plan by setting up a trust and also helped us designate Durable Power of Attorney, i healthcare proxy and healthcare directives for both of us. He explained everything clearly and didn’t mind repeating when I asked him the same question more than once!

We highly recommend Warren for estate planning
Warren made the process of creating our estate plan straightforward and easy, from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable and explained things well, and he was a pleasure to work with throughout. We were motivated to complete the process quickly, and Warren delivered in every way. His pricing was very fair.

Recommend for Wills & Trusts
Working with Warren makes end-of-life planning easy and reassuring. He knows his stuff, doesn't waste time or money (yours) and efficiently handles the myriad of forms and processes that would be overwhelming for the normal person to handle. Plus, he charges fairly and reasonably (I came to him after initially consulting an attorney who was way out of line in his proposed fee). Go with Warren. He's honest, knowledgeable and very reliable.

Estate Planning
After arranging an initial consultation, going over the process and answering our questions, my wife and I prepared the information requested by Attorney Hurwitz. Our home deed was located by Mr. Hurwitz when we could not readily find it online and he filed the deed for us as part of the estate plan execution. The process was straightforward and completed in less than a month. We highly recommend Attorney Hurwitz for his estate planning preparation services. Thank you.

Experienced and not push
When I walked into Mr. Hurwitz's office, I had no idea what kind of legal service I need exactly. However, I knew my issues. Mr. Hurwitz frankly laid out all possibilities, and how much he will charge for what. He didn't push me to select his services. Overall, we get things done much quicker than I expected. I'm happy with Mr. Hurwitz's knowledge and services.

could not be happier
Moving from a house after 30 years is a very stressful event. We contracted Warren Hurwitz as our representative for all of the legal transactions of selling a house in one town and buying a condo in another. This immediately relieved us of all stress related to the paper passing. We were amazed at Warren's tenaciousness, attention to detail, and professionalism. He kept us on track every step of the way and what a relief knowing that he was painstakingly looking after our interests. My suggestion is to contact Warren when you need any type of legal advice. You will not be sorry!

House Sale
We contacted Attorney Hurwitz for our house sale based on a friend’s recommendation. What we thought would be a very routine transaction turned out to have multiple unforeseen complexities including one that occurred after closing. Warren guided us through each of these issues bringing in expertise and wise ideas which would not have occurred to us. He was quickly responsive to our questions and available when we needed to communicate with him. We were very pleased and would recommend him.

Highly recommend
Warren assisted my family after our father died and we needed guidance regarding the estate and selling his house. Warren very patiently explained step by step what needed to be done at every stage. His work was very thorough and his follow-through was excellent. He was responsive, always had time to answer questions, and made a difficult time easier with his knowledge and expertise.

Enjoyed working with Warren. He has prepared an estate plan for my wife and I. He even allowed our 16 month son to join one of our meetings! We feel confident regarding the works he's done for us.

Private Homes Sale & Purchase
I was involved in trying to purchase a home and sell one at the same time. Warren stepped in and artfully guided both transactions at the same time. He provided me with many valuable insights and legal advice from his long career as a real estate attorney. I found him to be candid and honest. He skillfully negotiated the sale of my home with a couple who was living in Beijing, China with precision, patience and swiftness. He is a personable and straightforward man. It would be my pleasure to recommend to anyone who wants a good and trustworthy attorney.

Attorney who stays on your case from beginning to end ragrdless of time!
We were looking for an attorney to guide us through options for unexpected debt & bankruptcy options. Warren took the time to clearly explain our rights as we navigated foreclosure proceedings by our mortgage company. Not only did Warren save our house, but he also got us on solid ground with our finances. Numerous letters from creditors & attorneys were all handled by Warren, and I feel He went above & beyond the norm. Highly recommend hiring Warren for all your legal needs as he’s relentless on your behalf. Fantastic attorney who treats you with respect.
