Les was very helpful since we were dealing out of state and he handled all details efficiently

This law firm offers a fixed price of $695 for real estate closings, which was less than some other recommended law firms we checked out – but did seem in line with other ‘discount’ closing fees we saw offered online. So the price was right. But the old adage definitely applies here, i.e.,: “You get what you pay for.”
We contracted this firm to assist with the closing of our late mother’s home in Marlboro. It was a very straightforward transaction on both sides of the deal (Seller and Buyer). It was immediately apparent that Mr. Kramsky himself (the actual attorney) is barely if ever involved in the process, and we dealt almost exclusively with one of his paralegals, Puja Sheth, from start to finish. Puja was fine, but basically her role didn’t go much beyond forwarding communications back and forth between us and the Buyers’ attorneys without any substantive input, and occasionally acting as go-between between us and Les Kramsky himself (e.g., to double check on something, or get one of my questions answered). And on more than one occasion, she had to be prodded to ensure that even those functions were performed in a satisfactory manner. Of most concern was letting days go by without seeing/reading emails from the Buyers’ attorney (which happened more than once, much to the chagrin of the Buyers’ attorney), or forwarding on things from us without even looking at them – even when we didn’t want them forwarded!!! So she’s okay, but you definitely need to stay on top of her to keep things on track as desired.
So overall, the bottom line is: If your transaction is very simple and doesn’t require any actual legal advice along the way; and If you are comfortable taking a very proactive and involved role in your own closing, staying on top of things YOURSELF at all times; and If you are extremely vigilant about your instructions about what should and should not be communicated on your behalf (e.g., we ended up just drafting the exact language we wanted transmitted to the Buyers’ attorney on several occasions); and If you don’t mind never meeting with and interacting with the attorney himself….then this firm is fine to use. I estimate we saved about $200-$300 on legal fees by using this firm compared with some other fees we were quoted – you can judge for yourself if the effort you’ll need to put in is worth this level of savings. And of course if you have anything at all complicated in your transaction, I would stay away from these guys entirely.

Working with the law office of Les Kramsky was a totally positive experience. My closing went smoothly from start to finish. My questions were answered promptly and everyone I worked with was very knowledgeable.

I hired Mr. Kramsky based on others recommendations. I found him to be prompt and courteous. He and his team are wonderful to work with.

Hired Les and he did absolutelty nothing. After the initial contact good luck getting him on the phone. Many many errors in our seller's contract. We literally had to play our own attorney, and tell him to strike multiple items that would have literally netted us 0 dollars from the sale of our property. He didn't review anything. Charged a couple hundred dollars for overnight mailings that he never did. And had me travel from GA to NJ twice. And from IL to NJ once, to gather and turn in paperwork directly to the county. He didn't care PERIOD! And his office was super concerned that we sign off allowing him to receive the funds in his account so he could perform an EFT to us after we repeatedly told his office that we would be present at the closing to take the check directly. Think they cared? No...his staff wanted to do what they wanted and had an attitude that it was a privillage for us to pay them money to perform. Lastly, he didn't show up for the closing. No one from his office did. I literally sold this property myself and just gave him $1,400+ for nothing. I dont know about these other good reviews, but I'm willing to show emails and error filled contracts that had to be redone repeatedly. Plus the receipts for travelling costs to perform what my attorney should have done. If avvo had negative stars going beyond poor his entire office would receive -10.

Teri, Puja, and les kramsky were all awesome, surpassed my expectations. I was a first time home buyer and they made what should have been a terrifying experience as simple as it could be. They really went to bat for me and made sure I understood everything. Thank you so much staff and les r kramsky!!
