Excellent Service
The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh is great to work with. All of the staff are well versed, organized, and competent in their practice. They operate at the highest level of professionalism. Stilianos Cambilis made the whole process very easy. He not only took the time to provide me with a sense of understanding, but he also responded quickly and kept me updated throughout my case. I would highly recommend this firm to anybody in need of legal services.

Great firm
Mr. Rajeh, Lindsay McKollip and Dana were more than great handling my divorce case. In the initial consultation, Mr. Rajeh made sure that I understand how things will go forward and what to expect. Lindsay was the one handling my case, she was professional yet friendly, she answered all my questions (I ask alot), weekends, after hours, prompt reply to emails. She is very patient, knowledgeable and knows what is best for you. Dana is great, she was on top of everything when it comes to communication and documentation. What a wonderful team! Thank you all.

Great representation for real estate transactions!
The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh, LLC represented me in the sale of my condo, and they were fantastic. The office was readily accessible by phone and email, were extremely meticulous and knowledgeable, and they answered all of my questions. I had used a different attorney when I purchased my condo, and that experience left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I was better about doing research this time around, and the Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh, LLC did not disappoint. I recommend using them for all of your real estate transactions.

Best Lawyer
Mr. Saadeh was very helpful in finding potential problems with the contract I was very willing to sign for a lease. He drafted a Rider within 3 days of receiving the contract, advising me of things to look out for when signing a contract. He is extremely knowledgable and forthright with his insight. When I did not understand certain things, he did not hesitate to explain every detail. Mr. Saadeh was so great that I referred him to my parents when they were selling their home. There are few people I trust to take care of them, and he did not disappoint! Nothing but amazing and helpful experiences!

5 Star Recommendation
Mr. Saadeh was my attorney during a 4.5 year wrenching family law ordeal, which included a successful appeal. In my opinion, he is an expert on the law (our judge always asked him leading questions to clarify statutes). I have first hand knowledge of his success record on appeals (where he has a very high success record). When I felt that the SYSTEM was letting me down and was not fair, thanks to Raj, we got the result we sought, which was fair to both parties. He also has great client focus as he was always available to me when needed, including nights and weekends. He was recommended to me by a NJ Appellate Court Judge and I now I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Wonderful Attorney
I hired Mr. Saadeh a few years ago for a divorce and custody case. He was truly an advocate. He handled everything professionally, quick, and reasonably priced, considering my case and his experience. The other party thought they could bully and harass me, but Mr. Saadeh made sure that wasn't going to happen. I highly recommend his firm for anyone going through family case issues. Later, I used him to purchase my first home. Mr. Saadeh was very thorough reviewing the contract and once again, acted as a real advocate. Basically, if you are really looking for an attorney to look out for your best interests and to view you as a person, hire Mr. Saadeh.

Astute, strategic and legally well-versed attorney
I retained Rajeh Saadeh for two complex family law matters, including my divorce. I am very pleased with his services and am grateful for the positive outcome despite a serious possibility that things could have been far worse. Most notably, I am grateful for his guidance when my ex-wife filed numerous motions to prevent me from having virtually any parenting time with my child. Through Raj's powerfully crafted and legally sound responses, each and every one of these frivolous motions were denied or dismissed. I highly recommend Raj for all matters, especially those concerning family law. His associates and staff are knowledgeable, professional, courteous and responsive.

The Muhammad Ali of Lawyers: Litigates like a butterfly, stings like Alimony
Rajeh has been my family lawyer since 2015 and since then I have never looked back. He is a rockstar lawyer and shark in the courts. What i like best about Rajeh is his attitude, knowledge and attention to detail on Everything. I never feel rushed on the phone and he answers Emails all ours of the night. He goes above and beyond to explain legal matters in a way 5th grader will understand. With Rajeh all my outcomes have been a win for me and he's only getting better.

Amazing Lawyer - EXCELLENT EXPERTISE!
Rajeh and his team were very helpful and pleasant in our home buying process. I called around to get rates from several lawyers who all came across as very arrogant. It was a no-brainer to go with him with his reasonable rates as well as his strong knowledge and expertise in legalities related to home buying. On top of that, his customer service experience was impeccable. He advised me on essential areas and did an excellent job challenging a difficult lawyer (on the seller's side). I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate lawyer. THANK YOU Raj and Mildred for all your help! The process was seamless!

Great Attorney
Mr. Rajeh Saadeh represented me in a complicated real estate case. He explained the process and what to expect in this case due to previous litigation. He was always on top of things and very tough negotiator. I might add I'm glad I gave him power of attorney because he saved me a lot of money in travel expenses. He deposited the check immediately in my account. His staff (Mildred Solaris) is a terrific and top notch. Overall great job.

Would highly recommend Mr. Saadeh for real estate needs.
Mr. Saadeh represented us in a purchase of our first home. Mr. Saadeh was referred to me by a friend of mine who in fact was represented by Mr. Saadeh. He and his office staff (Mildred) was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable in real estate law. We were a first-time home buyer and did not know what to expect and were confused and skeptical about making decisions. But Mr. Saadeh explained us everything in detail and cleared all our doubts. The negotiation and sale process had many unexpected complications, and Mr. Saadeh’ s team handled it professionally. They worked closely with the mortgage lender to ensure that all legal requirements were satisfied and the loan was cleared in time for closing. Although we mostly communicated throughout the transaction with Mildred via e-mail or phone call, Mr. Saadeh always had his inputs on critical matters and advise us on the Pro’s and Con’s. He always worked for our benefit and well-being as we were a first-time home buyer. THANKS to Mr. Saadeh and team, we are now a home owner (given the complications involved). Awesome!! We would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for an attorney for the real estate.
