I never post on sites like this -- I just looked up Mr. Churin so I could give his number to a friend having L&T trouble right now -- but when I saw that other review, I had to chime in.
Mr. Churin most certainly IS a landlord-tenant attorney (among other things), and a fine one. I would not be in my rent-stabilized apartment today if I had not been lucky enough to be referred to Mr. Churin.
My landlord wanted to take my apartment for a relative, and another lawyer had told me I didn't have a chance of keeping my home. However, Mr. Churin thoroughly researched the landlord's various administrative filings and found an absolute bar to his evicting me for his relative. He even got the landlord ordered to pay my attorneys' fees!
I could not recommend him more highly.

Mr Churin falsely claimed to specialize in TENANT law, the truth is that he has specialized in Elder and Guardianship law for past 20 years. He does not have the experience , or knowledge of tenant law to represent tenants. He failed to take any action on my case. Never filed any motion or claim for my tenant rights. A complete waste of money. He spent 14 months getting nothing but adjournments. He refused to show my evidence file to the judge. He is a landlord's dream and a tenant's nightmare. He did not attend law school in America, he went to law school in Israel. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE. Run Run Run...
