Highly Recommend!
Jay Schmerler was a pleasure to work with for our home closing. As first time buyers we were new to the process and Jay was always available to answer our questions and guide us through the purchase. Jay was always looking out for our best interest and advocating on our behalf. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

You Can't ask for More in your attorney!
Mr. Schmerler has handled many matters for me over the years, and I can only say that he does so with Integrity, caring and total professionalism. If you have a question, he makes sure to not only answer it in layman's language, but to make sure you understood it and were satisfied with his explanation. He is excellent in Bankruptcy and represented me as a creditor and did a great job.

Jay R Schmerler, Attorney
I went through a bankruptcy 5 years ago, and Jay handled every detail expeditiously and kept me informed through each and every step. Recently, I completed my payments, and again Jay was prompt and professional an took care of the Order of Discharge expeditiously.

Excellent attorney for a new client
I worked with Jay when I sold my home and was referred to him by my future in-laws. As a woman, who had not worked through this type of transaction before, I didn't understand who was responsible for what. Jay walked me through every step of the process and made me feel comfortable asking him questions. He was kind and always took my side -- he got me a deal I felt comfortable with when things popped up that I may have otherwise conceded to. I highly recommend Jay to anyone, but especially to single women or anyone else who is hiring an attorney for the first time. I will definitely use his services again.

residential closing
Jay is knowledgable, proactive and readily accessible. He was very well prepared to handle my stressful closing. We met Jay 10 years ago when he handled another closing, and he was just as impressive at that time. I recommend Jay whole heartedly and without reservation.

Very professional & reasonable!
My wife & I initially hired Jay to draw up new wills and other documents which were done in a timely matter. He then handled a family member's bankruptcy with outstanding results.
