Outstanding Lawyer
Theodore (Ted) Cotter recently represented me at the closing of my home in Rockaway Beach NY. His expertise was greatly appreciated. When a few issues arose, Ted was always there for me guiding me through the process. He was patient and knowledgeable and always took the time to answer my questions. The cost was very reasonable and worth every penny especially for all the work he put in!If you are looking for high quality legal services look no further than Ted Cotter.

Incredible Lawyer, Great Personality, Terrific Service. I wish there were more stars to give!
I was a real estate lawyer at a large, international, NYC law firm for much of my career. I now own my own private equity real estate firm, which owns several million square feet of commercial real estate. Ted is as skilled and knowledgeable as any of the senior-most partners at any law firm I've ever worked with. He carefully reviewed our contract, title report, and all other attendant docs, including loan docs; he negotiated a great deal for us, and did it in a pleasant way. He's a terrific lawyer, is fairly priced, and is an absolute pleasure to work with; a great sense of humor. This is our family's second transaction with Ted and I'll be certain to recommend him to others and serve as a reference for him anytime. We are going to use him on our next personal deal for sure.

Professionalism even under pressure
Mr. Cotter helped me get through a nightmarish closing process. My lender made a catastrophic mistake, putting my deposit at risk, however due to Ted's diligence and persistence we were able to secure another lender and satisfy our end of the closing in time. Ted stayed cool even given the circumstance and talked me through the entire process. Thanks to him and the professionals at his firm I was able to close on a property at the height of the pandemic. Don't think twice about calling Ted for sound and reliable advice.

Ted Cotter was extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive throughout the duration of my apartment closing.  He instills confidence that things will be completed in a timely and efficient manner.  I would strongly recommend Ted to handle your real estate transaction needs.

Absolutely Fantastic!
Ted represented me on my condo purchase in Brooklyn and his work was stellar. Professional, diligent, friendly and most of all communicative he definitely navigated the process seamlessly all while keeping my anxiety in check. I can’t thank him and the firm enough for their amazing service!

Highly recommend
Mr. Cotter helped me with the purchase of my first home and it was a pleasure to work with him. He was extremely helpful throughout the process and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Especially for a first time buyer, he was great to work with and took the time to explain what was needed every step of the way. Highly recommend.

Stress Free Closings
We used Ted and his staff for a house sale and purchase simultaneously and it went incredibly stress free. They made a very difficult time very easy. I highly recommend Ted and his services, they are fantastic.

I felt like family!
Ted held my hand through my first home purchase, and it wasn't easy. I lost the first apartment I bid on, and a second fell through, there was trouble with the mortgage broker. Ted walked me through the entire process, answered every single question I had. He was always available, and so was his amazing staff, right up until the closing! I couldn't have asked for better service.

The Best Real Estate Attorney
I recently worked with Ted on purchasing my first home. He was not only professional, kind and quick to response to all my questions. Ted spoke with a real world language, so I was comfortable with the legal end of my transaction. I would highly recommend Ted for any real estate transaction and would be using him in the future. Thank you for all your help!

5 stars! Friendly, trustworthy, and reliable team to work with
Theodore Cotter and his staff at DDC Law Firm were exceptional to work with for both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new apartment co-op. The sale and new purchase were within a month of each other, with the new purchase being a co-op with many requirements. It was imperative that we work quickly and efficiently. All of the moving parts — the legalese, bank documents, and numerous payment checks — were expertly communicated and transparent. Needless to say, we felt in very good hands in a trying and stressful time. We are truly thankful for having found and worked with Theodore and DDC Law Firm. We found a friendly, trustworthy, and reliable team to work with and highly recommend their services.

Help with Estate Planning
I have a growing family Ted & his staff gave us everything we needed to get in place to make sure our assets we allocated properly. We hired him for a will, health care proxy and power of attorney and couldn't be happier.
