If I ever purchased another house? Michael is the only lawyer I would consider and trust. My experience was extremely positive, he fought ardently on my behalf and save me a lot of issues with a prior property I had in mind and thousands on the house of my choice.

Had contracted Michael for a house closing. He was very knowledgeable and understanding of our needs. He went out of his way at closing to iron out a particular situation - which could have gone very bad for us if he had not noted it.
He is a busy man, so be prepared to remind him now and then to keep on top of your case.
Will definitely hire him again in the future.

I used Michael Schonberger services for the sale of my condo. Michael at all times was very responsive to my numerous questions and concerns. He is a very experienced attorney and, in many instances, is able to anticipate and react to issues before they become problematic and interfere with the transaction's timetable. Michael worked diligently to protect my interests in the sale transaction. Thank you Michael.

Mike guided me thru my entire home purchase process. He negotiated the terms of the purchase contract, ensuring that my interests were protected. He reviewed the inspection report and advised me on the best strategy to get credits against the home price. He also ordered and reviewed the title insurance, prepared all the closing documents and attended the closing. He is very experienced and knowledgeable of the home buying process. Also, he was always a phone call away to answer any questions or address any concerns that I had. I was very pleased with the process and I recommend his services, without reservation, to anyone embarking a home purchase.

I've probably called Mike a 100 times during my home buying process. He always answered every question I had, and more importantly, gave me the time I needed. I highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for someone to help them through the home buying process, especially those new to the process, who like me, will need answers through every stage.

Mike has represented me in two real estate transactions. he has done a wonderful job for me. He is well organised, explains the legal aspects of the transaction clearly, is easy to contact and goes the extra mile for his clients.

We were very pleased to work with Michael as we closed on our new townhome in NJ. We found him on Avvo, read his reviews, and took a chance. And boy are we glad we did.
Mike was thorough with all hands on deck. He was in touch with us directly; he doesn't pass the work off to a paralegal or assistant. Our situation with our builders was complex as we were buying a home in a brand new development. He pushed for us to get certain customizations which worked out in our favor. He also helped us close before our interest rate lock was meant to increase which happened to fall on a holiday weekend. He went out of his way to get the job done.
We are so grateful to Mike for his help. We highly recommend him.

Honest, knowledgeable, experienced, forthcoming, and very helpful. Keeps his client’s interests first and foremost. Will definitely work with him again and highly recommend his services.
As perspective home buyers, my wife and I hired Mike Schonberger as a real estate attorney to conduct the review of a real estate offer contract that we had submitted with a realtor and had been accepted by the sellers. To our great benefit, Mike immediately disapproved the contract and requested the inclusion of additional language to protect our interests. The sellers of this property were very difficult to work with and attorney review lasted for over two weeks. During that period, Mike kept in contact with the seller’s attorney and kept us well informed of what was being requested of us and what we should and should not be willing to accept. Toward the end of the negotiations, the seller verbally requested that if we were to concede a couple of items, that the deal would be complete. After talking with Mike, we decided that were willing to concede these items; however, upon the seller’s submittal of the requested contract language, Mike pointed out and explained to us that there were a number of terms listed that we had not discussed and that we should not be willing to concede. His explanation was very clear and ultimately led us to rejecting the contract and terminating the negotiations. Throughout this process, Mike was the only party involved who kept our interests his highest priority. He was always willing to explain things to us in a way that made sense, and if not for him, we may have gotten into a contract that we would have regretted. My advice: do not trust a realtor to keep your interests in mind, but rather use an attorney as honest and knowledgeable as Mike to work through any real estate transaction.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael on closing the deal of my new apartment and I will definitely use his services again and recommend him to anyone buying a property.
Michael is very knowledgeable and he was very responsive to our queries. He also helped us even with the smallest details of the deal and saved us a lot of money and time.
He was also extremely helpful after closing the deal taking care of some issues discovered after the closing. Thank you Michael!
