Success with Ivan Raevski
Hello dear review readers . I know this lawyer for many years. I'd like to be sincere and honest in my review, my believes does not allow me to deceive or be not honest in favor of someone or something. I had case , on which Ivan worked. He proposed me several options to resolve it (it was little complicated, it is private, and i don't like to share it, sorry for that ), and also after long conversations and few visits, he helped me to make right decision. It means that Ivan really educated, with enough patience, lawyer who knows how correctly to understand the client's situation. I have no idea why he has some negative reviews, but I'd rate him 10 out 5 if it could be possible. I paid him once for that case, he resolve my problem thank Allah at first and then thank you Ivan, job very well done. After that,during several years , whenever i had questions or i was in need of consultation he would give me over the phone for no coast, of course if it was just not really complicated case. He resolve my problem thank Allah at first and then thank you Ivan, job very well done.

Divorce and child custody
The Best Attorney to deal with, Mr. Raevski really helped me with my divorce case and I got my child custody as was best for my child. I will always have him as my family lawyer for any future consulting or cases if I need one.

consulted
I went for a free consultation with Ivan about my debts. He explained all my options really well. Now I am in the process of retaining him for a ch 7 bankruptcy as it seems like the best option for me.

helped with points
A few months ago I received a 4 point speeding ticket on the turnpike. I was afraid that my insurance rates would really go up so I contacted Mr. Raevski’s office to try to lower the points. Mr. Raevski went to court with me and was able to downgrade the ticket significantly where it would not impact my insurance rates.

I highly recommend.
I had incurred a lot of debt because of my illness, both credit card and medical bills. Ivan really helped me to clear up all that debt by filing a ch 7 bankruptcy. The fee was reasonable and he gave me an affordable payment plan. I highly recommend.

great service
My rent was behind for 3 months and I got an eviction letter. Had to go to court and felt uncomfortable doing so by myself. Ivan went to court with me and was able to convince the landlord’s attorney to let me stay as we worked out a payment plan for me to catch up on the payments.

excellent working out debt
I owed a significant amount on a hospital bill. The bill collectors kept calling me and I was unable to come to an agreement. Once Mr. Raevski was on the case, he quickly obtained a settlement for a fraction of the amount I owed and was able to get me a payment plan so I could afford the payments.

helped me with foreclosure
I was about to lose my house to foreclosure. I was served with foreclosure papers and had to provide an answer in 35 days. When I met Ivan at his office, he explained the foreclosure process, what my options were and patiently answered all my questions. I hired Ivan to attempt a loan modification, which I have tried to get previously without success. He was able to get me a loan modification with reasonable payments and I was able to keep my house. Very satisfied with the services.

highly recommended
I had a criminal record from my youth and it was preventing me from getting a lot of jobs which required background checks. Mr. Raevski was able to expunge my record without me even having to go to court. Now I will be able to get better employment. Really good service and result.

An exceptional attorney and an even better person
I was going through a difficult financial period and spent many hours and free consultations looking for the right attorney. Too many of them did not seem right for me. Maybe it was their aggressive sales pitch. Maybe it was their inability to listen. Luckily I was able to find Ivan. He listened intently at our first meeting and asked many questions. He honestly wanted to find the best solution for me. No pretentiousness at all. Straight to the point which was refreshing to hear. Just good old fashioned honesty about my situation and no sugar coating. When you are In a jam you want to hear it straight. With Ivan you will 100% of the time. Once we settled on a gameplan, he worked incredibly hard and professionally, keeping me informed every step of the way. I did everything I could to drive him nuts, yet he took it In stride knowing that a difficult situation can cause someone to act irrationally at times. He was a rock. Oh...and our outcome....PERFECT! Absolutely MORE than we were able to imagine. I am not exaggerating by saying that everything went as well as it could. His work was stellar. Now I know that past performance does not guarantee future results, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better attorney. Hire him.

HIGHLY RECOMEND!
I came out of a bad divorce which I lost my alimony and house. I searched avvo looking for a bankrupcy lawyer and found Ivan. He helped me with every aspect of my bankrupcy. He was always reachable if I had any questions or concerns. He is well versed many areas of law and I wished I had worked with him in the very begining of my divorce. He has helped me start new chapter of my life and I would highly recomend his services to anybody!

really helped me during a rough period in my life
I was looking for a lawyer familiar with both divorce and debt issues. coming out of my divorce i really needed someone to help me with my custody and child support issues as well as credit card debt. I have consulted with a couple of attorneys recommended to me by friends before reaching out to Mr. Raevski. They all wanted a large retainer before taking on my case, which I could not afford. Mr. Raevski offered me a free consultation and a reasonable payment plan. Ivan was very knowledgeable regarding both my issues and always available when I had questions, even when i texted him in the evening or the weekends. Both my child custody issue and the credit card issue where resolved very quickly. I could not be happier. would recommend this lawyer to any of my friends.

Ivan really helped me with my debt issues.
After my divorce I was unable to pay the mounting credit card bills. After looking around for lawyers I found Ivan online and made an appointment to see him. Ivan explained to me that I had several ways of dealing with the debt and after analyzing my situation he recommended that we try to settle my accounts without filing bankruptcy. Over a couple of months Ivan was able to settle my major accounts for about half of what I owed and I was able to make the payments over 12 months to resolve all my major credit card accounts. I would recommend this attorney for anyone with debt problems.

Excellent Foreclosure Defense Attorney!
We could not afford our monthly mortgage payments and were served with a foreclosure complaint. Ivan was very knowledgeable in foreclosure law and recommended that we file a response to the foreclosure while seeking a loan modification. With Ivan's help we were able to get an affordable loan modification and did not lose our home. Jane

An Attorney for the People
Can't thank Mr. Raevski enough for the stellar work he's done with my bankruptcy claim. He's incredibly professional and is highly knowledgeable in many areas of the law and its inner workings. He is very courteous, prompt, organized and attentive to your specific situation. The end results are exceptional. He definetly scores a 10 in the "Attorney for the People" category. I couldn't be happier with my choice having Mr. Raevski representing me. I highly recommend him. Thanks again, Ivan, for helping me out! David - Elizabeth NJ

Ivan Raevski - Great Attorney, honest and dependable, highly recommend!
I had a difficult time finding an attorney who would speak with me without expecting an expensive consultation fee! Before retaining Ivan, he listened, and gave great advice. He did not expect a fee in return. I am a single mother with two children, and I cannot afford expensive attorney fees. Ivan worked with me and offered me a fee I could afford. He helped me through a very difficult and emotionally draining situation. He was very attentive towards me, answering every question and concern in an expeditious manner. My case was handled very well in court, and the judge ruled in my favor. I highly recommend Ivan. I do not know what I would have done without him, and I am truly thankful to him for all he has done to help me through such a difficult process.

GREAT OUTCOME!
I hired Mr. Raevski to represent me in a debt collection lawsuit and got the best possible outcome. I had previously entered into a settlment agreement with a bank through a collection agency. I made several payments and was not able to complete payments because of a change in collection agencies. The bank sued me for the entire balance on my account. Mr. Raevski was very knowledgable and did what he promised for me. He was responsive to my questions and quickly settled the matter out of court. He understood the seriousness of the situation, but made the experience much less frightening for me. I highly recommend Mr. Raevski.

Amazing
I was slapped with a TRO by an ex girlfriend and i didn't know where to turn as i have never been in this situation. I posted a question here on Avvo.com and Ivan wrote such a long detailed response. It was so good, i wanted to talk to him over the phone after a second response to my question on here. Ivan was available immediately and made himself available to me throughout. He offered free phone consultation and he spoke to me as if i was an already paying client. He genuinely listened and gave some great advice with the information provided. Fortunately i got the case dismissed and didn't actually need his services officially, but he was ready to stand by my side if needed and having that is priceless, especially in a situation where I am such a novice. He gave me his rate and it is reasonable, without a doubt worth it if needed. I would not hesitate to refer Ivan Raevski to anyone that needs a lawyer in NY or NJ. Hopefully, i won't ever need his services but it's a great comfort to know he's there should a situation arise. Thanks so much Ivan, i really appreciated your time and willingness to help.
