Very Grateful
Very grateful for all the help he gave me in the process of buying our apartment, he was always of the entire process, he clarified doubts and explained everything step by step, in the purchase process some setbacks arose but Michael did not let us get discouraged and he was hand in hand with us to make our dream come true. Thank you!

Excellent attorney
At a time when I was caring for a sick relative, I decided to sell my rental property. Michael was the ideal attorney to handle the matter. He immediately responded to my calls and emails, was extremely knowledgeable, and made it possible to close early. Michael is the best!

Experienced, Competent and Caring
Michael just closed on our house for us. We had many questions as we went through the process and Michael, without hesitation, was able to handle my questions and assure me that we were on track for a smooth closing. He handled contract negotiations expertly and guided us through to the end of the process. You are doing yourself a disservice if you do not engage Michael as your attorney.

Knowledgeable, responsive and honest
Michael is a fantastic lawyer. He helped us during attorney review for a home we were planning on buying in NJ. He made sure the contract protected us and it did! He is very knowledgeable and quick to respond and answer any questions. I would not hesitate to work with Michael again. Very honest and approachable.

Smart, Helpful and Caring Lawyer
From the moment i contacted Michael regarding my bankruptcy I felt comfortable using him. He took his time in the initial meeting to discuss options and what solution may be best for my situation. It was a stressful time and he help put me at ease. He was always available to answer my call to discuss whatever question or concern I had throughout the process.

Polite and Professional
Mr. Schwartzberg is very knowable and friendly. I hired him to represent me in my bankruptcy case. He guided me through the process and made sure I understood everything; sometimes he sounded like a professor but is what you need during this overwhelming time. Even after the case was finalized, he made himself available in case I encountered any other legal issues. He has a pleasant personality and shows respects for his clients. I recommend him 100%.

Great attorney
Mike was a very professional, a very organized attorney, who always did what he said. Mike told me the money I could get back was between 4K and 12K, and he got the whole 12K! I would highly recommend him to anyone! A true professional!

Michael was professional and efficient in handling my case. He's done work for my family in the past and will be my attorney for anything going forward. He walked me through all phases of my case and made it completely painless. I highly recommend his services.

Diligent and well-prepared
I used Michael Schwartzberg, Attorney at Law, in October 2017 when I closed on the sale of my condo in Clifton, NJ.  He came highly recommended by friends that have used Michael’s services over the past 15 years. He is an terrific lawyer: very responsive to my phone calls and emails. I found Michael to be diligent, well-prepared and well-informed. I will certainly use him again as needed in the future.

EXCELLENT real estate lawyer
I am an attorney myself (a former prosecutor, admitted to bars in NJ, PA, DC) and have used Michael's services four times since 2006. All of these were real estate transactions where I was the seller or buyer. Michael is excellent, and I've frequently recommended him to friends, family and neighbors. He always answers the phone himself, and promptly responds to emails, texts and VM. Should I require legal services again, I will call upon him without hesitation.

The Best
My family has been using Mr Schwartzberg for over 5 years now. He is the most thorough and detailed attorney. He is there when you need him and makes you feel very comfortable. He is easy to talk to, and explains everything so that you can understand exactly whats going on. By far the best attorney around. I highly recommend him.

There is no better, he is by far the best!
I have had Mr. Schwartzberg as my attorney for many years and I can honestly say that he is truly by far the best attorney around. I have been in real predicaments and honestly thought there was no help for me and Mr. Schwartzberg not only was able to help but he was able to find ways to solve all of the predicaments that I had presented to him. I have never met an attorney so helpful, knowledgeable, responsive, patient and willing to do what ever it takes to solve all problems. I highly recommend Mr. Schwartzberg! You definitely will not be disappointed if you choose him to represent your case! Thank you for all you do Michael!

Ultimate Family Lawyer
Michael Schwartzberg is a wonderful attorney. We have used Michael for various legal needs, including a personal injury case which we would not have won if it hadn't been for Michael's tenacity and thorough legal capacity. He never gave up and in our opinion, that played a huge role in winning our case since the company we were suing was obviously not cooperating with providing needed documents. They were hoping that we would give up! Michael never gave up and still only received the agreed upon pay even though he put in an extraordinary amount of time to finally get the settlement. We have recommend Michael to so many people who always thank us for it. One friend needed a bankruptcy lawyer and Michael was recommended. She still calls us and thanks us for recommending Michael! Michael is the ultimate Family Lawyer. He will take care of your legal needs with integrity, compassion and intelligence. The most recent legal work Michael did for us was to write our Will, Power of Attorney and Advance Directive/Living Will. We always leave his office knowing that he "has our backs" and will do the best possible to take care of us!!

Cream of the crop
I am an attorney who attended law school with Michael Schwartzberg. When the time came for me to select an attorney for our real estate closing I chose Michael out of the many attorneys I know. This is because he has shown himself to be an intelligent and shrewd attorney. He thinks of issues and strategies I do not. In addition, Michael has shown himself to me over the years to be a man of sterling character. I hold him in the highest esteem ethically and personally - in short, I trust him. To me, this is also an important consideration when retaining a lawyer. I give him my highest professional recommendation.

As good as they get
Michael has been my attorney for over 10 years and he is superb. He has helped me navigate through difficult times when I declared bankruptcy and was there to help me 5 years later when I purchased my home. He is guided my a moral and ethical compass and I offer my highest recomedation for his work.

Excellent attorney
As a realtor, I need to know that the professionals I refer to my clients will be excellent. Michael absolutely fits that bill and has professionally, knowledgeably and efficiently closed many of my transactions. I highly recommend him.

An intelligent and professional attorney
I have worked with Michael Schwartzberg on the buying and selling of real estate and the revision of wills. He was prompt in his communication and careful on the handling of the details. With his help all issues were resolved smoothly and easily. I would work with him again any time I need a lawyer. I have given his name to several friends who have also been very satisfied with his work on their behalf.
