Excellent attorney - very detail oriented
Mr.Shah has been our lawyer for our house closing in 2011, June 2018 and our Will. He is very hardworking detailed oriented person whom you can trust. He explained all the terms in contract so that layman can understand and taking time to respond back to questions even over a weekend. For our second closing we had lot of delays and he put in extra time & effort to ensure that we had a smooth closing. I wish I could give more than 5 stars !!

Happy to have Attorney Shah for any legal transaction.
I did work with Mr Shah twice. In 2012 he did help me to close out single family and in 2017 September we worked together to complete a cumbersome transaction of a foreclosure - bank owned property. He is gem of a person, With out his support and dedication towards the process I could not have completed the purchase on time. He is trustworthy and always pay attention to little details. I strongly recommend his service for any kind of legal transactions .

More than just 5 star
I most recently closed a new construction home in November of 2017. I have used Sital’s services for the past 12 years and he has closed several transactions for me. Sital is very responsive and professional. I can call him anytime from anywhere in the world he responds quickly. When I have him handle a transaction I have peace of mind that the deal will go through and will get done correctly and efficiently the first time around. He and is team is simply excellent. He is a very good real estate lawyer and provides sound and meaningful advise. He is and remains our trusted lawyer for life. He deserves more than the maximum 5 star rating allotted by Avvo

MR. SHAH IS A TRUSTED LAWYER FOR LIFE !!!
I have used Mr. Shah’s services on at least four occasions including the most recent closing in March of 2018. I am an investor who purchases bank owned properties for investment. I find Sital to be personable, confidant and he knows his stuff. The reason I keep coming back to Mr. Shah is because he is very detailed oriented and constantly making the right decisions during the closing process even when I have my guard down. He always asks the right questions from the opposing attorney. The bank owned properties is a frustrating experience but Mr. Shah doesn’t seem to loose his cool and gets the job done. Sometimes boxing gloves are required and he is more than capable of this when the situation requires it. He and his staff responds very quickly which is required when there are multiple bidders trying to secure bank owned properties. Shurine and Tibs from his office are excellent and respond very efficiently. He is truly one of very few attorneys who follows up and insures the client’s satisfaction. He is a results oriented attorney. He explains his decisions and contract terms in a down-to-earth manner which I appreciate. I have found my trusted lawyer for life and I have already recommended his services to others and will continue to highly recommend Mr. Shah to anyone who needs a lawyer. I would give him more than the 5 stars.

Mr. SHAH is very professional attorney
I initially met Mr. Shah through my realtor. I used Mr. Shah’s services for purchasing a single family home during March 2018. Mr. Shah responded to me very well and communicated by email very promptly and efficiently as I was a buyer residing out of the country. He responded to my emails and questions very timely and professionally. He is very diligent and hardworking attorney. I appreciate his replies as his language is very simple and clear which helps me understand since I am a first time buyer. Mr. Shah insured that I closed on time since on the day of the closing I was flying out of the country. I would highly recommend Mr. Shah’s services to my friends, family and business associates.

New Home Closing
I closed a new construction home in March of 2018. Sital was very personable and reliable from the very beginning of the process. He patiently answered all of my questions as a first time buyer and replied to my many emails very promptly including emails I sent to him after hours. He provides sound advise and conveys messages in a simple and clear manner. This is very important to me as I was a first time buyer and not aware of the process. Sital and his staff is very detailed oriented and did a great job in managing and communicating with my lender and getting us to close on time. His charges were also very reasonable and quality of his work is very good. I would give my highest recommendation for his services to my friends and family.

HIRE MR. SHAH IF YOU WANT THE CLOSING DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
I closed on the sale of my home during March 2018. I have used Mr. Shah’s service when I previously purchased my home. I choose to come back to Mr. Shah because I want the job done right the first time as he did in my previous closing. He is a no nonsense lawyer and stands up for his clients. He does what is right and is very straightforward. He also knows how to respond to difficult opposing attorneys. What I like best about Mr. Shah is that he makes sure his client does not get taken for granted. Mr. Shah is very accessible by phone and often answered the phone himself. He is very email responsive. Shurine from Mr. Shah’s office works very diligent and also is very detailed oriented and communicates well. I would highly recommend Mr. Shah to anyone who needs a lawyer. I was lucky to have him represent me and knew I was guaranteed to have a successful closing. Happy to be an returning client and received the same exceptional service years later.

MR. SHAH ASSURES THAT YOU WILL CLOSE WITHOUT STRESS
I initially met Mr. Shah at a home buying seminar. I used Mr. Shah’s services for purchasing a single family home during March 2018. Mr. Shah navigated through the many minefields associated with my closing in order to get us to the closing table. Mr. Shah is very calm and methodical. He knows how to get the right results from each person involved in the closing process. He showed great leadership ability and the ability to work well with others even with difficult sellers. He and is staff followed up on many issues and kept me and my lender aware of the status for closing at all times. He communicated frequently with me and often answered the phone when I had called. He often answered my questions and concerns late at night and on weekends. I am very grateful I selected him to represent me and I would give the highest recommendation for his and his staff’s services in the home buying process.

When You Want to Close on Time Hire Mr. Shah
I recently closed my first house in February 2018 and it is a newly constructed home. Mr. Shah had personally followed up on my case and insured I had closed by the end of February as this was my personal requirement. Mr. Shah and his team aggressively followed up with seller’s attorney almost every day with seller’s attorney regarding status. Mr. Shah is professional and gets to the point and gets the job done. His staff is also very efficient and they are all email savvy and very prompt. I would recommend Mr. Shah without hesitation to my friends and family for their legal needs.

If you are BUYING an INVESTMENT PROPERTY then MR. Shah is the RIGHT ATTORNEY to have in your CORNER
I used Mr. Shah’s services in 2010 when purchased a single family home. I came back to Mr. Shah when I purchased an investment property during March 2018. I came back to Mr. Shah because he provides outstanding service, responds very well and is very professional and demonstrates great judgment. Mr. Shah I find is one of the very few attorneys who is very detailed oriented and his main concern is to protect the client. He constantly asked me questions and asked why am I doing something in a certain way. He is very straightforward and gets to the bottom line and always provides sound legal advice. His charges are very reasonable as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Shah to anyone and I will be sure to use him again in the near future.

When You Want to Hire An Aggressive Attorney Than Look No Further Than Mr. Shah
I closed an investment property in March 2018. Mr. Shah was referred to me by my realtor. I did portion of the closing in California and Mr. Shah finished the balance of the closing in New Jersey. Mr. Shah and his team coordinated the closing very well as it was a difficult closing and managing multiple parties. Mr. Shah and his team take the time to explain the process and answered all of my questions as this was my first investment property. I found Mr. Shah to be clear, concise and able to speak in layman terms which was easier for me as a first time buyer to understand the process. The Seller’s attorney and the Seller were very difficult to handle but make no mistake Mr. Shah knows how to handle a difficult situation and has the ability to execute and makes things happen. Mr. Shah often emailed me after hours as I was in a three hour time difference. I found his charges to be reasonable as well and I appreciated how he saved me money and explained were in the process he saved me money. His staff is also very efficient and polite. I will highly recommend Mr. Shah to my friends and family and I will use his services for my next property for sure.

When You Want to Hire A Very Competent and Detailed Oriented Attorney Than Hire Mr. Shah
I closed an investment property in March 2018. Mr. Shah was able to get me out of a difficult situation in a prior contract I had entered into. Mr. Shah is very assertive and is able to show his aggressive side when needed at the right time. Mr. Shah is able to decipher a situation quickly, advise the best course of action and then execute. He and his team respond very rapidly and are very efficient. The entire team kept me updated at all times and communicated very well by email. There responses always were quick and often replied to my questions after hours along with his team. Mr. Shah works very quickly in attorney review and was able to secure my property quickly to avoid multiple offers. I have worked with Mr. Shah previously and I have complete trust and faith in his guidance and actions he suggested on behalf of me. He is simply one of the best attorney’s in New Jersey and he is very good at what he does.

An Affordable Housing Attorney Who Achieves Excellent Results for his Clients
I had closed an affordable housing unit in February 2018. I never purchased property before and this was my first experience. Mr. Shah was very responsive by email day and night and always on top of the file. Shurine from his office worked well with Mr. Shah. Mr. Shah has the unique ability to maneuver through problems and make them disappear. He seems to be able to also control problems that have nothing to do with him. Our closing was almost delayed at the last minute due to a lack of response from the association prior to my scheduled closing along with many other problems. Mr. Shah kept on the association tirelessly and got what we needed to close on time. Mr. Shah was very accessible by phone and email. I am grateful I selected Mr. Shah to represent my legal interests. He truly care about the client and client’s satisfaction. I would recommend his services to all of friends and family.

MR. SHAH DOES ATTORNEY REVIEW QUICKLY TO SECURE YOUR CONTRACT
I bought a property in May 2017. I have known Mr. Shah for many years for business reasons and working with other clients. When it came time to buy my own home I knew Mr. Shah would be the best choice. Mr. Shah finished attorney review within two days as requested. His response time is very fast and he knows how to negotiate with skill. He is able to achieve success on behalf of his clients in away that doesn’t ruin the deal and still get what the client wants. That is an art. Mr. Shah’s staff is very helpful and work well with Mr. Shah. I would highly recommend Mr. Shah to my friends and family without hesitation.

IT IS REASSURING TO HAVE MR. SHAH ON YOUR SIDE IN A REAL ESTATE DEAL"
I closed a single family home February 2018. Mr. Shah and his and staff are very responsive and answered emails very quickly day and night. The closing itself was very difficult involving few lenders, grants etc but Mr. Shah found a way to navigate through all the issues and managed all the differing personalities and got everyone to the closing table as the Seller almost terminated the transaction after four months of work. This is an art. Mr. Shah also followed up on all issues no matter how small the issue maybe to a first time buyer. Mr. Shah returned calls very promptly and also answered the phone himself very often when I had called. I appreciated knowing Mr. Shah was at my corner every turn. I am very happy we choose Sital to represent us and I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Selling an Affordable Home? Hire a knowledgeable and Responsive Attorney
We sold our affordable home and closed promptly on Feb 2, 2018, due to the expeditious handling of our transaction by Mr Shah and his staff! He and his team are comfortable working with the added requisites of affordable housing regulations. They worked diligently, even after hours, to ensure closing within the timeframe I required. Mr Shah's paralegal, Shurine was available to answer my questions, on the occasion Mr Shah was at a closing. She also facilitated the faxing/or emailing of documents between the buyer's attorney title company and myself. Mr Shah was very attentive to my file, and was instrumental in coaxing the buyer's attorney to strive for smooth and rapid closing. For a smooth, worry free experience, I highly recommend the law firm of Sital Shah. Hiring a seasoned professional, such as Mr Shah may be the smartest move you'll ever make!
