Several months after opening escrow on a commercial property, my partner and I waited for the seller to commit and see the closing through. After multiple seller-initiated adjournments, we resolved to retain an experienced real estate litigator, someone to resuscitate a seemingly pulse-less deal.
Mr. Goldstein wrote a series of letters restating our position as sanctioned by the contract of sale. He articulated that we as the purchaser had been, remained and would continue to be ready, willing and able to close. He responded to seller's objections with hard facts and dates that supported our position as willing to close and underscored the number of seller initiated adjournment requests, with no clear explanation for cancelling. Seller appeared to be willfully breaching the contract by steadfastly adjourning closing date after closing date without good reason. Michael pointed to the extraordinary allowances of time as well as the associated financial costs we had incurred due to these irrational and unexplained delays.
A time of essence date was fixed and the clock is now counting down. Michael has been nothing short of professional, responsive and clear. He set a realistic timeline and gave us frank advice on what to expect as we neared the TOE date. He remains committed to the plan we set forth and is prepared to shepherd this deal to closing or successfully litigate our case. With Michael's guidance and support, we are confident and 100% committed to seeing this deal through to the end.
We will provide updates as this case progresses...

Michael Goldstein represented me in two separate personal injury lawsuits within 2 years of each other. His determination, dedication and persistence on my behalf resulted in very positive outcomes on both cases. Michael's skill as a litigator was evident to me when I saw him question the defendant at a deposition. I have complete confidence in his ability, and I recommend him without
