Probate and Real Estate expert!!!
Thank you for all your Probate and Real Estate expertise, regarding our Dad's estate. The passing away of our Dad was pretty traumatic, but you made the process of enabling us to carry out the wishes in his will quick, simple, and painless. Thank you!!!!

Good Listener and Compassionate
Although I had one consultation with Victoria Brown she listened attentively not interrupting me once then made a recommendation that I soon followed up with. She spared me any future problems with her one suggestion and all turned out well. Victoria Brown's name will forever be "inked in" my phonebook should I ever be in need of a lawyer again.

Very Helpful
It was a pleasure to consult Ms. Brown about selling our house with a possible encroachment on our property. She explained our options in detail and suggested, among other things, how I could file an OPRA request to obtain permits and survey information for the neighbor’s property. All of it was very helpful.

A half-hour consultation chock-full of great advice
Victoria spoke to me for a full half hour and gave me SO much valuable information about how to begin establishing my recently deceased brother-in-law's estate. It's VERY clear that she knows her way around this topic. She was patient, thorough, and extremely helpful in highlighting the beginning steps of this process!

Excellent lawyer
I hired Victoria as the lawyer to take care of my Uncle's estate. Victoria was thoroughly competent, understanding and proactive. The case was complex because of some missing paperwork, but she was able to handle the gaps very well.

Highly recommended
After some research, we decided to get an appointment with Victoria Brown, who has been our attorney since we found her. Victoria Brown has been our lawyer for many years. We have stuck with her services since she is very thorough, caring, and attentive to every concern we've had over the past few years. With her assistance we have been able to overcome many challenges with clients and made significant improvements with our business. We thank Victoria and highly recommend her as an attorney.

Victoria handled my real estate closing. The buyer was ill prepared so Victoria had more work than usual, but she handled it professionally, courteously and with a good attitude. Highly recommended!!

A Superlative Attorney possessing great Character, Genuineness and Sympathetic to your situation
Victoria transcends the stereotypes one associates with Attorneys. Professionally, her skills are superlative. She has the keen ability to deeply investigate details so as to arrive at a conclusion that involves extremely great thought and intellectual processes. She submerges herself deeply into your case and creates a battle plan which is substantiated by laws and case history. Another important trait is PASSION. She fights for you and she really Cares about your legal issues and is relentless in her pursuit of a positive conclusion. She has no fear of her adversaries and refuses to be "tricked" or "intimidated" by the opposition and she uncloaks what I refer to as deceptive practices by your opposition. To me, this is something lacking in most legal professionals. In addition to her insight and composure, there is a deep level of care, concern, and kindness. I have been in her office when she was consulting others and I have seen her immerse herself in her work. She also is neither presumptuous nor condescending and she always makes time for you. Her approachability is readily apparent as seen by the diverse composition of her clientele. She has worked with me on various legal topics. Furthermore, she makes herself available and is a fierce negotiator as well. I would not be hesitant in entering a legal imbroglio with her by your side.

Excellent & Fearless Professional Service you expect & need from an experienced Lawyer
I rate and recommend Ms. Brown extremely highly. She recently handled a very stressful and loaded litigation matter for me as plaintiff. I in fact had been with another attorney who had pulled out in part due to the complexity of the matter and my position in it. My claim was a mixture of contracts, estate law, landlord tenant, and a host of other issues, including equitable considerations and elements of unjust enrichment (at my expense up until then). The Bay Ridge lawyer (a defendant) who put me into that unsuspecting position was already suspended by the Surrogate Court (Richmond Cty). I lost a lot of money, time, and energy until then. I'm so glad I hired her, referred to me by another friend. Victoria was efficient, aggressive and thorough in her research, understanding and explanations to me as well as via her confident and strong liaising with the numerous defendants involved (all who were much "bigger" than me!). With Victoria there were never any surprises from her from beginning to end, including what she was charging which I knew on a prompt, informed and regular basis. Victoria is a tough attorney when it's called for while earning the respect she gets and deserves at all times. She is also a sensitive., flexible and totally likable attorney and appreciates the dimensions which may not fit nicely into the realm of legal complaint and compensation, but she does her best to acknowledge those elements and seek redress for any legally actionable part to the fullest extent possible. Victoria Brown has been practicing for some time and definitely has fantastic staying power in her style and delivery in terms of her commendable level of representation throughout the most complex of cases. She even managed to spare me further stress and expense by achieving a desired settlement on this matter for me and getting me a check n hand, inside of a year. Bravissima!

Excellent Attorney
Victoria is a sharp and caring attorney. She was generous with her time and went to great efforts to understand the nuances of the case before offering a pointed plan of action if retained. She has solid grasp of internet-related cases(something few attorneys do; and I've talked to many). I'd recommend her to friends in a heartbeat while retaining her myself whenever a need arises.

Great and Versatile Attorney
I have had the pleasure of knowing Victoria Brown both professionally and socially for almost 30 years. In my tax practice, I have had occasions where our clients need an attorney to draw a will, close on real estate, represent in bankruptcies, handle surrogate court matters, etc. Victoria is always up to any challenge I may call her with.

Highly Recommended Attorney - Victoria Brown
We had the pleasure of having Victoria represent our interests in three very different cases. In all instances she provided excellent advise, demonstrated a superb understanding of the law and was very strategic in her filings and dealings with both judges and arbitrators. It is also important to note that attorney Brown was victorious in all three cases, one of which was against a very large and well established legal organization on the east coast. She was very strong with her knowledge of the law and superb in dealing with the chess game tactics of a much larger firm. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Victoria as a highly qualified lawyer and a passionate advocate of her clients.

"Recently Attorney Victoria Brown assisted me with a complicated Internet situation and she did a great job. I needed someone with a high degree of expertise in Internet discovery, privacy violations and legal procedure. I found out that Ms. Brown is not only Chairwoman of the Internet Law Committee of the local Bar Association, but she is even writing a book! She has an admirable work ethic, definitely a Type A personality, working very hard to achieve the best result for her clients."
