Review of Robert Goldberg
I am writing this correspondence to commend the excellent and professional services we received from Robert Goldberg, Esq., a partner at Goldberg,Scudieri & Lindenberg, P.C. ("Goldberg Scudieri".) Robert Goldberg and his law firm are the best in New York City and possibly the entire United States. One of Goldberg Scudieri's specialties is New York landlord/tenant law. My daughter is a tenant of a huge corporate apartment building, and unfortunately, the leasing office allowed some unsavory tenants to lease an apartment next to my daughter's apartment. The unsavory tenants caused problems for both the leasing office and other tenants residing in the building, thereby threatening my daughter. As a result, we had a very difficult and possibly dangerous, precarious situation. As with any large corporation, no steps were taken by the leasing office to remedy the situation. I was desparate and worried but I was lucky enough to speak with Robert Goldberg. He jumped right into our situation immediately and helped us. He wrote a letter the same day I spoke with him, and then called and spoke to the management office. He received great results immediately, with his knowledge and expertise of New York tenant/landlord laws. Robert has a caring and compassionate nature towards his clients. He truly wants to make a difference by helping his clients. Robert Goldberg became a lawyer, I believe, to do "greater" good towards society. I am not writing in "cliches." am speaking the truth. I highly recommend anyone to contact this law firm re landlord/tenant altercations. I will continue to use Goldberg, Scudieri & Lindenberg, P.C., for any of my legal needs. Thank you and best wishes.

Alan is a great lawyer and got me over $1 Million Dollars on a buy-out!
He is the best lawyer I ever met. He got me over $1 Million from my landlord as a buy-out, The landlord wanted to give me pennies for me to move so he could demolish the building. Alan took control and started a lawsuit for me. If not for Alan I would have lost everything!

Mr. Goldberg saved my apartment.
My landlord tried to evict my wife and myself from our apartment. It was originally my mothers apartment. We were living with her. When she died the landlord sued us in court to evict us. Mr. Goldberg proved that we had the right to remian in the apartment because I had lived with my mother. We won the case and there is no rent increase. He is now suing the landlord to get us back our lawyer fees. I recommend him very highly.

He got me close to Two Million Dollars
My landlord wanted to buy me out. He offered only a low amount. Mr. Goldberg started lawsuits against him for harrasment and breah of warranty of habitability. I was the last tenat Mr. Goldberg stoped the demolition. To settle the landlord had to pay me close to Two Million Dollars. I owe it all to Mr. Goldberg. We love him!!
