Made my life easy
I recently closed on a property and used this law firm to do the closings. They made the process simple and hassle free. I worked closely with Michele who guided me through the process and took care of everything needed to be done and answered all my questions quickly.

Wonderful Service - Great Experience
I used Walkow Law for the closing on my condo. I asked my realtor for a referral for a realty lawyer and they recommended Diane Soden at the Walkow office. I was up-front about my needs, and their office gave me a detailed explanation of their fees and services. No surprises! Diane is knowledgeable and professional and I enjoyed dealing with her. It was a true pleasure. If I ever have the oppurtinity I will gladly recommend Diane Soden and Walkow in a second! Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best Law Office
I have used the Walkow Law Office for several closings, and each experience gets better and better. They have plenty off staff to carry the large volume, and I never had an issue with speaking with someone or getting a timely response. Friendly and personable experience, and everyone seems very knowledgeable with different types of transactions. The fees they charge cant be beat either. Highly recommended!

Excellent Job
Thank you Mr. Walkow. What an amazing team to work with. I had a very difficult purchase from a bank - which they charge more for and rightfully so because of all the work involved- they worked so hard through all the issues and made my closing an easy process. Very nice and friendly staff who answered all my questions. I am recommending them to everyone I can.

Outstanding service.
I found Mr. Walkow’s ad on the internet. His advertising stated that his price was $495. I had a sale and then a purchase. When I called they disclosed to me that, just as the ad indicated, the $495 price was for the purchase or sale of a single family house from homeowner to homeowner. In fact, I ended up paying $495 for the sale of my house. They also explained that when representing me when I bought my property from a bank, which I did, or dealing with a foreclosure or investment property with tenants, it involved so much more work so the fee would be higher, like in the $800 range. I shopped and found that most other attorneys charged at least double for that so I asked them to help me buy my house from the bank too. These people were so nice and so helpful and so responsive. I am so grateful that they were on my side and did such a great job. Amazing job.

Multiple Real Estate Closings - All perfect!
I am a Realtor and was turned on to Mr. Walkow three years ago now. Mr. Walkow’s firm has closed most of my deals based solely on his price (9 out of 10 clients - if given the choice of spending $495 versus $1000 - $1500 to close will select Walkow all the time). They all ask, “Is he ‘good’?” And the answer is YES! His Paralegals do much of the legwork and often, do the closing itself. If there are any issues or problems? Alan or one of his associates (Christine) will get involved. Either way, I have never felt let down or missed a step. They are diligent and get the job done on time. I am using them for an REO Closing right now and again, could not be happier.

Unable to obtain closing documents
Our sale of property closed without us present by POA, since we were traveling. It has been over four months that we are unable to obtain our closing documents. Once the deal is done, they don't want to talk to you, they don't answer the phones, they don't answer emails. Nothing. No documentation on the sale of apartment! Any suggestions what should we do?

Contract to close $495 became $895 only disclosed at closing
When I first contacted Walkow Law Office through their website, Alan called me asking if I had any questions. Basically I felt the advertised “contract to closing” for $495 was competitive and I wanted to know if $495 covers my buying situation, so I explained to Alan that this was a for sale by owner cooperative in Edison NJ. He told me because this was a cooperative it is even easier to close because it doesn’t require a deed and the $495 covers my situation as he gave me the contact person name to start the process. Only a few days before the close, I found out from the mortgage disclosure that Walkow was charging me $895. The reason they explained was because it was a cooperative and it was more difficult. My complaint with Walkow is the following: 1. I made it clear from the start it was a cooperative purchase and they agreed to the $495 price 2. I discovered the over charged myself as no one in the office discuss this with me 3. When I spoke with the para legal about this charge, she used the threat that changing the charges could jeopardize the closing 4. Unprofessional and poor service: - My attorney Alan Walkow doesn't reply to emails or return calls. He also was late and the last person the show at closing - On two occasions I was prompted by my lender to contact my attorney office because they were late with needed information to the lender - The attorney office never told anyone that the active paralegal had leave the firm and the replacement contact name was not disseminated until I walk through the email thread with her to provide the time sensitive information - The para legal gave me the wrong information for the bank check to the sellers attorney. I had to spend unnecessary time mailing registered mail twice but unprofessional was the same paralegal never apologized for her mistake and acted like it was my fault It was only a small $56K purchase and I didn't expect perfect service for $495 but they seem to charge what they want regardless of the service and not tell you about it.

Low Quality
Worked with Mr. Walkaw on a real estate purchase. Couple of things happened: - the initial contract rider was sent out without my review and approval; - the final (!) )rider was signed on my behalf and sent t o the sellers, concluding attorney review without my review and approval again - Attorney and his assistant somehow missed an email from the sellers attorney that concluded attorney review. As a result, 6 days passed after the attorney review conclusion without me being aware of it. Attorney review conclusion starts the clock for multiple things in the purchase process (condo documentation review within 10 days, initial deposit within 10 days. inspection within 14 days, mortgage commitment within X days etc. ) With all that i lost 6 days and had 4 days to make everything happen. They did not even see this as an issue. It is very hard to speak to Mr. Walkaw when you are in disagreement, as he simply talks all the time without listening to what you have to say. I would not feel comfortable with them representing me in the future.
