Great Attorney
Do not waste your time with other attorneys. Elise Liebowitz is the person you need to fight for you. I had difficulty getting into a Mitchell-Lama cooperative. I had another attorney who after 3 months was getting nowhere with management and HPD. I then hired Elise Liebowitz and within 3 weeks I was offered a cooperative that I accepted. She worked diligently with HPD to resolve all issues. She was always available to answer any of my concerns. She and her team will not disappoint you.

Fantastic Real Estate Attorney
I've utilized Elise's expertise over the past 12+ years for real estate and will continue to hire her in the future. She is very thorough, clearly explains everything, and is happy to answer all my questions no matter how small or silly they may be. Just please do not completely fill her schedule when I reach out to her next time.

Diligent and Professional
Elise Liebowitz’s firm provides excellent service. Ms. Liebowitz is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and effective. I retained her firm in connection with my real estate matters, and she clearly and concisely explained all the important issues to me and protected me from various pitfalls. The deal closed and her practical advice was spot on. I highly recommend her and will use her firm’s services again.

Highly Professional and Skilled
I have been using Elise Liebowitz's services for the past 20 years. I find that she always provides me with prompt, courteous, and excellent service with both legal and practical advice. She has represented my family and myself in various real estate, wills, trusts & estate, and health care proxy matters, areas in which she is extremely knowledgeable. Having worked in large law firms, Ms. Liebowitz has a sophisticated practice and has applied her vast experience and expertise to my needs. Ms. Liebowitz and her attorneys always go the extra mile to make sure that my family and myself are fully protected while achieving the best possible outcome. She is my go-to lawyer and is the first person I contact whenever I have any legal questions or issues. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Thorough and Professional
Elise handled my will and health care proxy. Shortly thereafter, she took care of the sale of my home. She was extremely thorough and very professional throughout both processes. I relied on her advice and counsel. I would highly recommend her if you need an attorney.

Doesn't know the meaning of QUIT!
Elise Liebowitz is a lawyer that doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit!! After having my car totaled in an accident, I realized that the dealership had misrepresented the gap coverage they sold me. So I was on the hook for $3000 to the bank for the financing. After trying a few legal approaches it was her final advice when I went to court that won me the Judgement!! Elise is a lawyer worth more than her weight in gold!

Real Estate struggles
Elise manged the impossible. After struggling with my Coop in Yonkers for 13 years. She found a path to my successful departure. No small task. Professinal, efficient, and forcefull when necessary. Cant say enough good things. When you need a Lawyer, you need a good Lawyer.

I have known and worked with Elise for over 20 years as a professional co-worker in the real estate industry. Elise is a extremely thorough and diligent and works tirelessly on behalf of her clients. She is well thought of in the industry and has amassed a terrific network of professionals, many who consider her a trusted friend. What distinguishes Elise most for me is her excellent communication skills and presentation style-- more specifically, her friendly demeanor and easy smile make her a delight to work with- she is polite-- now that is refreshing!

Why Elise
As President of a small relatively new Coop on the upper East side of Manhattan, we have needed the services of Elise Liebowitz on numerous occasions. What makes Elise so special is that she would respectfully listen to the importance of issues we had and ably incorporate them into a legal document. A case in point was about special language in a revised sublet policy we wished to have placed into our Propriety Lease. We asked her for a statement that reflected our Board’s understanding about its use. It took a few calls back and forth, but Elyse patiently heard what was significant to us and perfectly incorporated language into our Proprietary Lease that reflected those concerns as a written preface to our sublet policy. In another matter, I asked her to devise a way to affect another change in our Lease that could be most easily accomplished by me and that needed to be done very quickly. She did it within 2 days. I would recommend Elise Liebowitz without reservation.

Cover Your Assets
I have known Elise for several years. We were introduced by my accountant who I would let perform brain surgery if necessary! Elise was highly regarded by her and at that time worked on my 2nd real estate purchase. Since then, Elise has worked on both sides of several transactions for me. Elise is all things previously mentioned, well-respected, knowledgeable, efficient, professional, diligent, hardworking, affordable and caring – she came to my father’s funeral during the blizzard of 2011! What needs to be highlighted is Elise will CYA, (Protect/Cover Your Assets). Without this, my hard work could have been eliminated! Thank you Elise, I do not know where I’d be without you!

Best closing advocate!
We hired Elise as our real estate attorney to close on our first apartment purchase. She was incredible knowledgable and helpful throughout the entire process. As a couple that was new to the process of homeownership, Elise took the time to carefully explain the trade-offs during each important decision and always made us feel like we were her only client. At the end, we were thrown a huge curveball by our bank the night before our closing that jeopardized everything. Elise called us at midnight and helped us work through a strategy to get the deal done the following day. She was tenacious in staying on top of the bank until they relented and was the main reason we were able to pull the deal together. She'll be the first person I call for any future real estate transaction and I'd highly recommend others to do the same!

Review of Elise Leibowitz
Elise Liebowtiz provided excellent services to me in the preparation of Power of Attorney for my father, who is incapacitated. She was efficient and professional in preparing the documents and in our meeting with my father. I would definitely recommend her.

Speed & Clarity
Elise helped us review the offering plan and by-laws of our condominium in order to better understand the building's overall situation in regards to the condominium sponsor, board composition, responsibilities and election process. Elise was fast and thorough in the analysis requested, would highly recommend.

Excellent and Sensitive Serice
Elise Liebowitz was wonderful... I needed help with a major real estate transaction in NYC. When she realized that I was a complete novice, Elise seamlessly shifted gears from super efficiency to all due efficiency but with everything clearly explained in layman's terms. She got the business done very much to my advantage, taking on several bureaucracies and their various attorneys... A year later when there was a tax hitch (not at all her fault), she dug up exactly the correct paperwork in a matter of minutes (seriously, minutes)... I simply could not be more pleased.

Great work!
Elise drafted and completed last will and testaments for me and another family member. She did a great job dealing with the intricate and frustrating details of the matter and identified several areas of concern for our consideration. Without her help, I know that the process would have been far more burdensome.

Diligent, detailed, Zealous representation
Elise cares. She really cares. She recently hammered out a 10 year, $5 Million lease for my law firm with a very tough landlord. She never gave up, but instead kept coming back with ways to make it work or simply continued to fight for what we wanted. I couldn't have asked for more from my lawyer.

A Great and Thorough Attorney
Elise represented me when I purchased my NYC apartment in 2015. As a first-time buyer, I greatly appreciated that she took the time to provide overview of the contracting process as well as the intricacies of the agreement. Throughout the contracting phase, Elise was excellent at providing updates on the status of the negotiations with the Seller's Attorney. I was also extremely impressed by Elise's attention to detail. During the closing, certain items came to light that were not previously disclosed. While other attorneys would have been comfortable with the Seller's original explanation, Elise probed further to ensure that I was not taking on additional and unnecessary risk. I would highly recommend Elise to anyone in need of real estate representation.

Great experience
Elise Liebowitz was very competent and supportive when I bought my co-op apartment last year. She walked me through the somewhat complicated buying process, gave me very good advice how to vet the apartment and the co-op itself before signing, and answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend her services to a potential buyer.
