Highly Recommended
I have used Elissa Greenspoon for three real estate closings over the last eight years, and for recently executing a will. In all four instances, I have found Elissa to be thoroughly professional, extremely attentive, and consistently exhibiting good judgement. None of my real estate closings were easy. In fact, two of them required multiple contracts - with offers falling through for one reason or another. Elissa was a pleasure to work with, even when dealing with a buyer's unreasonable demands, an attempted closing whereby the buyer's funds did not go through, and multiple other hurdles in negotiations. She was always calm, cool and collected - something I highly admire (for I am often the opposite!). In summary, I highly recommend Elissa Greenspoon for any legal work - I would trust her in any matter.

Compassionate and knowledgeable
Elissa Greenspoon has helped my family in so many ways! She is a kind, experienced attorney who works extraordinarily hard for her clients. She expertly handled my divorce, providing both fierce advocacy and compassionate advice during what was obviously a difficult time for me. She navigates - and can help explain - complex issues, and her many years of practice have honed her skill and judgement: she really knows the ropes! I have continued to use Greenspoon & Greenspoon - most recently to draw up my will and also for a real estate closing  - and they have always provided the kind of reliable, knowledgeable expertise that I received from them at the very beginning. I highly recommend their services.
