We have two goals in our practice. The first is to be a true “family practice” – to have the ability, in most situations, to serve the legal needs of our clients. Certainly, circumstances arise where clients require representation outside our expertise, and in such cases we have a wide network of colleagues with whom we can entrust the representation of our clients.

 

Our second goal is to do our best to insure that our clients are satisfied with our representation. We know that we can’t always give clients the answers they want to hear. But we strive to provide the right answers, anticipating that at the end of the process, most will realize that we truly had their best interests at heart.

 

So, if you are looking for attorneys who are good at what they do- but more importantly, attorneys who care about what they do, you’ve come to the right place. At Pickus & Landsberg, we specialize in client satisfaction.

Easiest closing ever
Evan, Heather, Tori and the team are the best at what they do. From start to finish, they were great to work with, highly knowledgeable and made the whole experience so much less stressful. The closing was quick and organized. Cannot recommend them enough!

When my husband and I started looking for a home, I asked around to find a lawyer to represent us. I reached out to Evan since my brother-in-law and his wife hired his firm when they purchased their home. Right off the bat, I was impressed with Evan because he was incredibly thorough in answering all of my questions. We hired them to represent us and they did not disappoint. Evan and his team (including his paralegals and Heather Aronson) were always friendly, professional, knowledgeable and prompt when it came to responding to our questions and concerns. We were very happy with their service and definitely recommend them.

Pickus & Landsberg Review
We made an offer on a house which we anticipated would garner a lot of interest from other buyers. So, we needed to get our of attorney review as quickly as possible. Evan Pickus and his team were extremely diligent in providing the necessary tasks and documents for us to review and execute, and did so in a highly professional and expeditious mannner. We were out of attorney review essentially within 24 hours, which was quite an accomplishment. This was critical as other potential buyers started making offers above our agreed to price, so timing was of the essence. Evan and his team kept us up to date on all of the key dates. Also, whenever an issue came about from the seller's side, they explained the situation thoroughly and presented us with the options and offered their advice. This was helpful and ensured that we would continue to progress on schedule. The closing was the easisest that I have ever been a part of. They had everything ready to go for us to sign, explained each item whenever we had questions, and made efficient use of our time and theirs. As for post closing, they also provided a clear list of tasks for us to manage for the new home which was also very helpful. It was an enjoyable process. Their fees are extremely reasonable for the services that they provide. I will be using them once I sell my home, as well, as I wouldn't use anyone else. My sister used Evan too and was extremely pleased.

Excellent legal services on pre and post home closing
Evan and his team are extremely diligent in providing legal advise. They went above and beyond answering all our questions pre and post closing of our home. It was a new construction and Evan's team performed a thorough review of the contract during attorney review period building in clauses that helped us during and post closing. Even several years after closing they provided us expert legal advise on how to deal with our builder who was unwilling to fix issues related to our house. I would highly recommend Evan and his team to anyone looking to buy a home.

A Good Man. Determined and Thoughtful.
Evan Pickus was a name I only knew of by the business card Mom kept in her phone book. When Mom passed and I had to settle her will, Evan Pickus created the will, so that is whom I chose to help me execute it. Little did I know at the time just how much Evan had actually dealt with my Mom (in particular in her sickly years), and how much more I'd need Evan when family complications arose. Evan was honest, a good listener and quick to respond. Just what I needed. Thanks again, Evan, for everything. Your business card now remains in my phone book.

Reliable for years
I have been using Evan as our business attorney for over 10 years. Evan is reliable, helpful and always professional. We have used him for collection matters, contract matters, employee matters and also used him personally for several real estate closings and I cannot compliment him and his staff enough on how well they handle what we are working on.

Great Attorney and Great Team!
I was a first time home buyer with little knowledge of all the ins and outs of this business. Evan and company did a great job making me feel at ease. All the information they provided me was done in a timely matter, neatly organized, and easy to follow. Nothing came to me as a surprise. I knew what to expect very step along the way thanks to Evan. Everyone was always available for any questions I had. Any emails I sent were answered the same day. It was a pleasure working with Evan and his team.

Fantastic Home Closing Experience
Pickus Law did an amazing job closing on our home. They kept the communication lines open and because it was a move from Canada to the US they walked us through the experience with little stress. Closing itself was a breeze, they were organized and extremely efficient. A special thanks to Heather who really did a lot of the leg work and made the experience easy. She was on top of all the inspections and again communicated any concerns quickly. I highly recommend this Law Office for any services you may need.

I was in a rush to get to my new home in Texas and to get inspection as well as guidance for negotiations and money transfer while not attending the closing and Evan and his staff were always on top of the situation. I would highly recommend their firm

Evan N. Pickus handled the closing on my townhouse :)
I hired Evan Pickus to handle the closing on my townhouse. What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE ! ! ! ! Evan personally explained every stage of the closing to me. If I had a question and he was unavailable there was always someone in his office to assist me at that moment. My closing was flawless and completed on time. I highly recommend hiring Evan Pickus to handle your legal needs. He is honest, supportive and lovely to chat with. He is quite knowledgeable concerning the law as well as caring and attentive to individual needs. Evan is a true gentleman and sincere friend.

JUST EXCELLENT!!!!!!
I would recommend attorney Mr. Evan N Pickus to anybody for his excellent support, dedication and wonderful customer service. He has a great team who are very helpful and knowledgeable. Mr. Pickus saved me a lot of money while he represented me in the purchase of my new house as well as selling the old house. He always outsmarted the attorneys from the other sides. He is well versed in all the rules and regulations and went above and beyond to look for my best interest. I wish him and his team the best!

Your goto crew for real estate and other legal matters.
Evan and his legal team are definitely the right choice for Real Estate matters. My particular real estate case was long and drawn-out ( by no fault of their own) but they made sure I closed on my property. They pulled out all their heavy guns when it came to bumps in the road and really make things happen for me. Evan, Nicole and Heather are your dream team when it comes to real estate law. Thanks a million for making it happen for me. Your efforts we're truly appreciated.

Excellent service!
Evan and his team members, helped me close the deal for my new house. The lender tried to delayed the closing, but Evan and Nicole kept pushing them for closing and we were able to close right before new years. During the whole proccess i didnt have to do much of communicating with any one other than my Lender, because Evan and his team were able to get every one on same page. I highly recommend that you guys hire Evan Pickus as your attorney, because i can gurantee that you guys will walk out happy. Just like i did.
