A wonderful experience for 15 years
I know Andy for 15 years… He came to our office to give us more information regarding short sales also the right way to send escalation close… He also came to our open houses and we had a wonderful time. Since then we closed many deals… over 15 years….some really unusual and very hard… But we did it. Andy is a wonderful attorney that will make himself available late in the evening if there is something urgent… also an attorney that really picks up his cell anytime you need him. Karen , his 20 years experience paralegal is a doll… She will be there when you need her and her sense of humor will help you solve all the problems. Her knowledge is very important helping you solve your clients problems. I really recommend this firm being an easy to deal with, safe, reliable and fun…. Maybe more, but I can’t find more words. They are all amazing. I love them all in the firm…. So sorry if I forgot to mention others… By the way… thank you Andy and Karen to manage to close the hardest deal we faced so far.

Trustworthy and Responsive
This was my third real estate transaction and Andy was by far the most responsive, most candid, and trustworthy lawyer I have used. He always provided great advice without ever being pushy and responded quickly to my calls or emails. I will be using him for all my future NJ Real Estate transactions. Thank you again Andy!

Andrew Roth of GIANNANTONIO & ROTH, LLC (5 Stars!)
Andy Roth is the best attorney I've ever worked with. My wife and I were first time home buyers of a new construction home in the Jersey City area - which had some unexpected hiccups. Andy ALWAYS had our best interests in mind (down to the smallest details) and ensured we understood everything in play. What a wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

Mr. Roth and his team provided excellent service and advocacy during the complicated process of navigating through the real estate prism. Mr. Roth was attentive, responded to emails promptly, was available upon short notice, and was candid throughout. I would highly recommend him if you are considering purchasing a property.

Knowledgeable and Dependable Attorney
I highly recommend Andy to anyone going through a real estate transaction. In our situation, my wife and I bought a new house and Andy was very knowledgeable about specific state and local laws and regulations and helped guide us every step of the way (executing initial purchase agreement to closure). Andy was kind enough to explain things for us to understand well and helped us minimize our downside risks throughout the whole transaction process. As always take your time to do your own due diligence, but look no further than Andy to help provide expert consultation to help you get the most out of your specific legal situation! We will definitely plan to work with Andy in the future as well.

Professional, Responsive, and Knows his stuff!
Andy handled a tricky real estate transaction for us. The buyer and buyer’s attorney were pretty demanding and Andy handled all the demands with aplomb. He informed us which requests were reasonable based on his experience, and which ones were unreasonable or off the wall and this helped us negotiate. Throughout the process, as potentially disastrous things happened in the middle of the transaction, (the pipes burst during a winter storm!), my husband and I kept saying Thank Goodness we have Andy handling things. In the end of the day we got the house sold and walked away with equity in our pockets. We definitely could not have done it without Andy’s counsel and guidance. Highly recommend!

A Knowledgeable Attorney and An All Around Good Guy
Andrew Roth Esq., handled the sale of some real estate for my family. He showed tremendous perseverance and patience to cut through all of the nonsense one encounters in the market today, and see straight to the ultimate prize for my family: a successful sale. He has a wealth of resources and an abundance of knowledge that he uses to get the job done. He assisted us with clearing up old liens that were cleared but never recorded, difficulty with title insurance, negotiations, etc. Andy was steadfast, under all circumstances, no matter how difficult things got. My family and I are grateful for all of his help and would absolutely recommend him.

All questions, inquiries and concerns are answered, he ensures his client is first and is satisfy with his services. I have referred all of my friends and families to this company.

Andrew Roth
I hired Andrew Roth as my attorney to close on the home I purchased in Cedar Grove, NJ. He answered all of my questions, returned my calls in a timely manner, and gave advice when needed. Andy is intelligent , personable and professional; I would use his services again, and recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate attorney.

The Best
As stressful as it was, having to sell my mothers house, Andrew Roth made it a pleasant experience. Andrew is extremely knowledgeable in what he does and is always prepared. He explained things to me in a fashion I would understand and if I didn't get it the first time, he would explain it to me until I did. He is kind and honest and has a wonderful work ethic. It was a pleasure working with Andrew Roth and I would highly recommend him!

Excellent, caring attorney
Mr. Roth represented my elderly mother in the sale of her home. Notwithstanding the buyers constant throwing of all sorts of wrenches into the deal, Mr. Roth's skillful negotiation skills and knowledge of law helped us to overcome and prevail on the issues at hand. As important, he exhibited tremendous empathy in dealing with the emotional impact this sale was having on my mom. I was very grateful for all of his help, and would recommend him without reservation.

Best Attorney
I had Andy as my attorney for a newly built home in Northern Jersey, and it is the best experience I ever had with any kind of law service. The seller is a big national builder not easy to deal with, while Andy really protected my interests from the contract review to the closing date, giving all good advises to me (first time home buyer), he is extremely knowledgeable and accountable, he is willing to spend extra time to go the next mile to negotiate/fight with counter parties for any bit of my benefits. BTW, He replies email on Sunday and late night with quick turnaround and frequently call me to quickly answer any questions, which I find especially important for first time home buyer like me. I do have a legal plan which can find me a free attorney, but I am 100% sure I will come to Andy again if I had any legal issues that falls into his fields. Only after you use his service will you understand why it is all 5 star reviews here.

I've been an entrepeneur for the past 15 years , and have been using Andrew Roth for all my legal matters. Most recently he negotiated my business lease and the closing on my new home. His work ethic and attention to detail are unmatched. His knowledge about real estate law really sets him apart from other attorneys. I have and will continue to recommend Andrew Roth to all of my friends, family and anyone who needs an honest, results orientated attorney.

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I retained Andrew Roth when we were in the process of purchasing our very first home. He is an absolute pleasure! He walked us through the process, explained the sometimes-complicated intricacies of home buying/ownership, and made us feel completely at ease. Andy is very responsive and always on-call to answer any questions we had. My husband and I knew we were in good hands from beginning to end. He made what could be a stressful experience a very positive one. We are thankful for his guidance. I highly recommend Andrew Roth.

Great Attorney...
My family and I have relocated several times and purchased a number of homes. We also have a family business which in the past has required legal support. Whenever we need any legal counsel Andrew Roth is the only attorney we call or use. He has strong business sense, is a master negotiator, and, quite simply, always has our interests in mind. His legal expertise is diverse, but Andrew’s background in real estate law is where he sets himself apart. I would highly recommend Mr. Roth for anyone looking for an attorney who simply delivers results.

Client for private real estate
I've had the pleasure of working with Andrew Roth on 2 real estate transactions in the past 6 months. Initially me and my fiancee were new to the home buying process and were looking for a lawyer to help us with our first home buying experience. I called about 6 different lawyers, and in the end I wound up choosing Andy. During our first call Andy said something that the other lawyers didn't - that when he is on a case he will always be accessible and will help us through the entire process. Andy did just that - we would send him an email Friday night, weekends, mornings and we would get a response within hours. He was always on time, made me and my fiancee feel like a priority throughout the entire process, and provided solid legal advice. We felt so comfortable and confident with him representing us during our first home buying experience that we decided to use his services to buy a second unit for our parents. The experience with Andy was the very same. We intend on using Andy for all future transactions and I strongly recommend him to all of my family and friends. It was an absolute pleasure for us to write this review about Andy.
