I used this office to buy a house. The paralegal made so many obvious mistakes. Emails sent to wrong recipients, numerous typos in documents she prepared, missed deadlines. Bank was ready to close. But the attorney office was not. We ended up closing outside of the deadline required by the contract because of their delay. Complained the paralegal's incompetency to the attorney. He became defensive. So much unnecessary stress when dealing with this office. Months after the closing, the registration was sent to my neighbor's mailbox. Yes, the paralegal put down the wrong street number on the envelop! I felt sorry to hire this office.

I actually met Michael in 2001 when I bought my first house and he was the seller's attorney. I was so impressed that when I bought my new house in 2017 I retained him. Coincidentally, my real estate agent also independently recommends him to all of her client. He and his staff are exceptional. They are very knowledgeable, professional and personable. They handled a few sticky situations with relative ease. I highly recommend his firm.

We bought a home in Freehold today and Michael Gutman's office was integral in getting us to this day. Between email support for any question we had, to phone calls from us at any given moment this office helped us every step of the way. We are especially thankful to Jennie Davis for her knowledge and calm demeanor. Jennie " talked us off the ledge" many times. Every member of this team has been a pleasure. We highly recommend Riley & Gutman.
Richard Wiener, Family Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I practice primarily in family law cases and divorce. It is not uncommon for one spouse to sign over his/her interest in the marital house to the other spouse, or for one spouse to buy-out the other spouse, or to simply place the house on the market for sale. In each of these, I have referred my client(s) to Michael who has handled the title transfer or refinance or sale with perfection. The clients are well cared for, and Michael knows exactly which documents (deed, affidavit of title, etc.) are needed for each situation. I can hand off the client to Michael who knows how to accomplish the goals of transferring title.
