    I love my Real Estate closings and litigation work because it makes people happy! It's tough to get through a house sale or purchase and that's when my work as "counselor" really comes through! I also do Landlord-Tenant work.

Mr. Violette is an excellent attorney. He has helped me with numerous issues regarding my home. His expertise proved to be an asset in my plight to sell my house. I have consulted with him on many issues regarding the law. He is personable and very knowledgeable.

I had spoken to attorney Violetti with reference to a landlord/tenant dispute and subsequently retained his services. He seemed to be extremely knowledgeable in this field of law and took the time to discuss the various options at my disposal to expedite the process of an eviction proceeding in a timely manner. I was extremely impressed not only with his professionalism but also his empathy in affording me much needed assurance. Please note that this eviction was between an adult member of my immediate family, and as such was a delicate situation at best. Attorney Violetti appeared in Court with me and answered many pertinent questions before the Judge and helped alleviate much of the stress that I would have otherwise endured. Furthermore, inasmuch as I am a senior citizen and survive on a fixed income, Attorney Violetti had agreed before hand to grant me ample time to pay any and all legal fees arising from this legal proceeding. In concluding of this review, it is my utmost belief that Attorney Violetti should be granted a rating of ten based on the information as hereinabove mentioned.

Buying a home
Tim is amazing to work with. He gets back to you quickly on any questions you may have. He is professional, yet makes you feel at ease in his company. I would work with him again and again.

Thorough and effective
Tim handled my condo purchase in Manhattan thoroughly and efficiently. He was painstaking and covered all aspects of the transaction promptly, giving me sound advice when I needed it. I would recommend him for real estate work inNew York City.

House Closing
Although this was not our first house closing, we were still nervous. Selling and buying a house is stressful. Timothy was able to assuage all our fears. Thanks to his expertise both closings went well and without any undue surprises. Thanks Tim!

Great Lawyer
Mr. Violette recently helped me close on a piece of property. I was grateful to have a competent, knowledgeable attorney who walked me through the entire process. Mr. Violette answered all of my questions. He was especially great at getting all sides moving towards the completion of the transaction. I would hire him again and would recommend him to my family and friends.
