Review for Residential Lawyer Roman Tabatchouk and Kiera Sullivan
I am Candis Lai, a real estate agent with six years of experience in NYC. Recently, I encountered the most challenging deal of my career, laden with unexpected legal issues. Initially, I worked with Kiera Sullivan, who was incredibly professional. However, as complexities escalated, Roman Tabatchouk stepped in full-time. Despite having numerous interested buyers, I faced obstacles preventing the deal from closing due to legal intricacies. At one point, things became so complicated that I contemplated walking away. Roman's expertise and dedication were instrumental; he ultimately navigated us through the complexities and successfully closed the deal. I highly recommend Roman Tabatchouk and Kiera Sullivan for their exceptional legal skills and professionalism.

Confidently Navigating Home Buying Process
Roman made our house-buying process seamless! He was very thorough and readily available to explain each step of the process, ensuring we understood the details. Especially as first-time home buyers, we very much appreciated his concise guidance to help close the deal. Roman and Nancy helped us confidently navigate the home buying process and I will be using the firm for all my future legal needs. I'd highly recommend this firm and am grateful for their expertise and professionalism!

Extremely Helpful & Reliable
Roman helped my fiance and me close on our first home despite a drawn out and complex process. We purchased a multi-family, new construction home in a competitive marketing during Covid-19. Furthermore, we backed out of the first home we went under contract on due to serious inspection issues. The seller attempted to keep us locked into the contract and Roman's counsel was instrumental in ensuring we tackled the issue in a strategic manner that enabled us to avoid any real legal issues. I look forward to working with Roman on future real estate purchases.

Hire him at any cost
Roman is a phenomenal attorney who saved us a large amount of money due to his negotiation skills and deep real estate knowledge when we sold our home!! Hire him right away and he will protect your interests right to the end. Roman, did an excellent job holding our hand as he took us through the offer process, inspection, contract review, and closing process seamlessly. He gave us early heads-up about issues that may come up and told us exactly how to navigate through it. In a very tough buyer's market, we got the best pricing for our house and that was mostly in part due to Roman's guidance. We recommend him highly. We will definitely use his services again.

Highly recommend- Excellent attorney!
My family and I retained the services of Mr. Tabatchouk to help us with the closing of our first home. We were incredibly glad we did! As soon as we hired him, Mr. Tabatchouk hit the ground running and helped us close within two months. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Tabatchouk was readily available and made this experience much less intimidating and more seamless. He fiercely negotiated on our behalf and advocated for our best interest from the inspection process until closing day. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. His paralegal, Nancy, is extremely warm and friendly and very efficient. I highly recommend this law firm for any real estate transaction as they are truly excellent at their job!

So thankful we hired him!
My husband and I have heard of stories of people that simply didn't hire an attorney for a real estate purchase and we questioned whether or not we should when we were initially on the hunt for one. Looking back now, we can unequivocally say not only do you need an attorney you need a great attorney on your side through any real estate transaction because you can never account for the unexpected. Roman represented us as buyers on two transactions. The first was a deal that had to be cancelled while we were far along in the process due to some unexpected results that fell out from the seller's side (yes it was very shady!) and with aggressive seller's attorneys and all, Roman came to the rescue with his legal expertise and was able to come to agreeable terms to cancel the transaction and we received our full deposit back as well. The second transaction, was for the purchase of our first home and it was very successful! Throughout this experience, Roman was always available to answer any questions we had and if he wasn't available in that very moment his paralegal Nancy was there and she always put us at ease! He has such a wonderful team and it was such a pleasure working with them. I also appreciate that he doesn't speak to you with all the legal jargon that can often be very confusing for people. Lastly and most importantly I feel as though we were always comfortable talking to him or his staff throughout the process. Roman is a lawyer you can trust to be on your side!

Exceptional Service
When I purchased my first home I had no idea what I was doing - Roman walked me through step by step. Not only was he professionally excellent, he was also personable and made sure I understood the process. I ran into many problems throughout my purchase, the only aspect that went smoothly was having Roman as my lawyer. He went above and beyond and I recommend him to everyone.

Fantastic, professional, reliable.
I used Mr. Tabatchouk as my real estate attorney for my recent home purchase. As a first time home-buyer I was a bit lost in the process. Mr. Tabatchouk was incredibly kind and helped me understand so many things I would never have known. He is incredibly professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. He is very quick with his emails and goes out of his way to help with any problems. I had some issues with my mortgage and he was beyond helpful to quickly clean up my mess. He is very well versed with the laws and regulations in both New Jersey and New York. Mr. Tabatchouk also helped my close friend with his tax appeal and was able to reduce his taxes! I am relieved to now know I have such an incredible lawyer to handle any of my legal matters. In a world of not knowing who to trust, I know I can 100% rely on Mr. Tabatchouk for all of my future legal proceedings. I will be a client for life. Thank you so much for all your help!

Excellent business attorney
As an entrepreneur, Roman allows me to remain completely confident in every new venture we pursue. I wouldn't trust our legal work with anyone else but his firm.
Posted by Christine | May 30, 2013
Highly Recommended!
Unlike other attorneys, Roman is very accommodating and reliable. He is always available to answer any questions, address any concerns and quick to follow up with a response. He takes the time to explain in detail and his explanations are always clear and to the point. Other attorneys assume we all know what everything means and don't take the time to review things with us. Roman answered every question I had, even though I'm sure I was starting to get annoying :) His patience made me very comfortable and I actually learned a lot throughout my home purchase process. I have recommended Roman to others who are looking to make real estate purchases in the near future and am looking forward to working with Roman again to refinance my investment property.

Excellent real estate attorney
Mr. Tabatchouk is currently representing me and my husband in a real estate transaction. He has guided us through the process and has been very thorough in looking through and amending documents. Due to Mr. Tabatchouk's reseach, we were able to put a fair bid on a property we were interested in.

I hired Roman to review and assist me in negotiating the creation of an employee shareholder agreement within my company. Roman's attention to detail, timeliness and personable approach made for a painless and successful experience. I would recommend Roman highly to anyone.

The worst lawyer ever
Me and my spouse hired Roman for closure of our home purchase. Roman Tabatchouk is the worst lawyer ever. Don't pay him and don't trust him. He doesn't care about customers. Once he is paid, he totally ignores the client. He doesn't care about the interests of client. We bought a home with the help of Roman Tabatchouk and it was a huge mistake. We lost a lot of money because Roman failed to help with the legal issues regarding the inspection of the broken roof. Roman just ignored my numerous emails. Don't trust him, better find more reliable lawyer.

Response from Roman Tabatchouk December 29, 2020
This is an issue that came up months after closing. During the contract phase the client hired their own trusted inspector and after the report and back and forth negotiations agreed to a reduction in price for inspection issues and appraisal issues in excess of $25,000.00 in satisfaction of all physical issues and moved to close. While our representation ends at closing which, is the completion of the matter, the clients emailed us over 11 months later about some issues with the roof and I explained to them in detail their options including actions against the inspector in the event that something was missed by the inspector. The last exchanges I received were thanks for the explanation until this un-based/un-hinged comment. If they needed a litigation attorney to pursue the inspector they independently hired for missing something over a year ago, we would have happily recommended someone but we as attorneys have no ties or responsibility for the physical condition of the property as we're not licensed home inspectors.
