Very helpful
I got to this lawyer by mistake, once I was in the office I realized that I went to the wrong place when I was about to leave a lady approached me and asked me to stay and speak to the lawyer. Best decision ever. He was very approachable and gave me all the options that were there for me. They took my case and my mortgage company accepted the modification. They were always reachable when needed and were with me all the steps of the way. When I went there I had a sale date on my house and he stopped everything. I will recommend his service. God bless them all.

Attorney Friscia was more then helpful in my case, my home went into foreclosure and he was able to help me and my wife cruise through it with ease, they have a very special staff working with them, they were quick with response to our questions. Kailyn is the best and most reliable person to have on your side when going through any legal issues she is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Thank you Friscia and associates for helping our family in this matter. And we will go to you for any other legal matter that might present it self.

Highest recommendation
Attorney Friscia and his staff are competent, professional, and honest. My mortgage situation was dire and Friscia and Associates listened and then gave me realistic guidance. Through their expertise and diligence, foreclosure was stopped and I am back on track with my mortgage. Not just the attorney but his office team as well are the best!

Excellent legal work
The team at Friscia & Associates, led by Lawrence Friscia, is the gold-standard when it comes to legal expertise -- specifically (in our case) when it comes to real estate transactions. This firm epitomizes professionalism, efficiency and timeliness. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. They made the process of closing on our home as smooth as possible. They helped us negotiate favorable terms in an efficient, timely manner. With all of the headaches that go into purchasing a house, we felt assured that the legal aspect of the process was in great hands. If there were more gold stars to give, we would.

Mr.Friscia helped me to save my home. He came to court and met with an arbortrator. He explained all the legal terms to me so I could understand it. I couldn't have done it on my own without Mr. Friscia's help.

Top Notch
My home went into foreclosure and i was scared out of my mind. From the moment i walked into Friscia's office, he made me feel calm and stated "We will work it all out". True to his word, he got my home out of foreclosure and also work out a mediation to have my monthly mortgage lowered as well as my interest rate. Two Thumbs Up!!!

| Consulted Attorney
I went for a consultation re: foreclosure and other extenuating issues came up. Mr. Friscia was knowledgeable, helpful and down to earth. I offered to hire him to help but at the point I consulted him it was really too late. He could have strung me along I suppose (as I experienced with my previous attorney who did so for about a year and then the home foreclosed anyway without any positive impact from my attorney) I'd have hired him if I could have done it over. Hopefully this will end soon and I can move forward but I will recommend him.

Smart, Thoughtful, and Creative
I went to Mr. Friscia with a very difficult and urgent mortgage foreclosure matter. He carefully considered all the facts, explained the options, and gave me excellent advice. I highly recommend him to anyone with foreclosure issues.

Jonathan Minkove (part of this firm)
I went for a consultation re: foreclosure and modification and Jonathan was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and down to earth. It turned out that I didn't need him at the moment but, I'd have hired him if I did. I have nothing but good things to say. The receptionist/secretary was very personable and down to earth, too. Waiting time was short and waiting area very light and airy; comfortable.

Overall Excellent
Friscia and Associates are well-informed, knowledgeable, experienced attorneys that provide personalized attention to each case. They are diligent and efficient in collecting documents and facts related to the case, analyzing them and presenting their clients with possible options, proposing their recommendation, and finally helping their clients carry out the decided course of action, whether that is renegotiation, settlement, or answering to a lawsuit. They do so in a courteous and personal manner, while recognizing the time sensitivity of such matters. Friscia and Associates are highly recommended for legal advice and representation.

Knowledgeable and Very Helpful!!
During what has proved to be a very stressful time in our lives, my husband and I found a lawyer who cares and has laid everything out so we understand the process that we're going through. He's responsive and answers all of our questions. We truly value his expertise.

Friscia & Associates provided me with outstanding legal representation. These guys are NJ's go to foreclosure lawyers.

Helpful and Smart Attorneys!!
I went to see Friscia and Mosoni for a mortgage modification and they were able to walk me through every step. They explained everything to me and they didnt mind me asking questions and they didnt get frustrated when I didnt understand certain things. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is dealing with mortgage problems and foreclosure. Without their help I dont know what I would have done. And the best part is they accept credit cards which made my life a lot easier.

Poor and Disrespectful Communication Tactics
Overall, I found this office to be quite reluctant to provide information especially as a new client purchasing their first home. I found myself constantly asking "what is next" questions back to back, prompting the office for more information. I was provided improper timelines on when I would receive documentation with no proactive updates. It seemed that the reception desk was not properly trained in customer service, and when I finally spoke with Lawerence himself (after several requests and emails) he attempted to over-talk me. Furthermore he was unable to provide "defense" for his negligence. Thankfully the paralegal, Michelle, stepped in to help him with this point. After not accepting his interruptions and raised voice while I spoke; we "amicably severed the relationship". I would have rated 1 star but I greatly appreciate his suggestion to sever the client customer relationship as he was unable to service my needs.

Terrible representation
I was not given timely advice. It was extremely difficult to receive any information regarding my case. I was not contacted for weeks and had no idea what stage I was in or what was going on with my case. I was spoken to in a condescending manner during my attempts to contact the office regarding my case toward the end. I was extremely unhappy with the level of service or lack thereof that the office provided.

Response from Lawrence Friscia June 24, 2019
You can't make everyone happy. As the public record shows, this matter was successfully settled. That said, I strongly dispute this account. I cannot break confidentiality, but the facts are not as they are being presented. I just checked my files to confirm this. Lakeyna, please feel free to contact my office. I would be more than happy to speak to you regarding this.
