Thank you Mr. Stark!!!
Thank goodness for Mr. Stark. I had the most disrespectful tenants. They weren't paying their rent AND they were also vandalizing/defacing my property. My other tenants were actually considering moving because of my problematic tenants. I went in to Mr. Stark's office and met with him. He was honest in explaining the different potential outcomes and I decided it would be necessary to attain his services. Mr Stark evicted those terrible people in 6 months time and now I can relax.

Extremely Helpful
I spoke to Arthur at the Law Firm today and he was so helpful and patient with all my questions. We plan on retaining their services and feel very confident in a positive outcome.

Very very helpful!
If I could give him 6 stars I would. I needed to get rid of one of my old tenants which I’ve had a difficult time with for many years. In less than a year Mr. Stark has finally did the job for me. I couldn’t be more grateful for his work.

Excellent Landlord Lawyer
Mr. Stark is an excellent and reliable attorney and he has helped me resolve many cases for my two buildings in the past 10+ years. He is an expert in NYC housing law and he always works efficiently and quickly on cases. I would highly recommend him to any landlord that needs a problem resolved quickly and well.

Record Count!
To resolve tenant non-payment issues we chose Stark Low PLLC to represent us in four unrelated cases , While being thorough , exercising complete disclosure , each case was litigated professionally , diligently and handled with personal care. Brian came through for us with all four decisions ruled in our favor. As a plaintiff , we could not ask for anything more.Thank you, well done Brian!

Best lawyer
Most lawyers look foward to be paid first before they offered any help,but Brian offered great advice,and even checked a court case that was pending against me in court the same day I was supposed to be there thank you Brian

Great landlord/tenant lawyer in the Bronx
I am a new landlord in the Bronx. I was having non-payment issues with a Section 8 tenant who was not meeting their obligation for their designated portion of the rent. I met with Brian, and was impressed with how he laid out the options for me, and gave me a range of timelines I could expect for my case. After retaining his firm, everything was seamless and very efficient. His office was always able to give me an update, and as my case wound it's way through housing court, each stage was handled quickly, and also with excellent communication. We reached the goal we wanted within the short end of his predicted timeline forecast. I enthusiastically recommend Brian and his firm.

Simply the Best!
Mr. Stark represented me this month and I'm so glad he was on my side. He protected me and my family from a relentless landlord. He knew every trick they'd pull and wouldn't let them get away with it. He counseled me gently but defended me fiercely. If you need someone who really knows what he's doing, call him. My family and I are really glad we did.

The opposite of fear is faith, especially in selecting a lawyer!
How frightening can it be when you are permanently disabled and your other half is a senior citizen still working and you receive a notice to vacate in one month even when you have never ever missed a rent payment that was at fair market value in over a dozen years of tenancy. Very scary stuff until I was recommended to Brian Stark. Just navigating the Bronx county courthouse was intimidating but Brian's representation for us against a formidable management company lawyer was noteworthy. We were totally overwhelmed with the whole situation and his legal advice and law knowledge and demeanor made it quite clear that we had selected the right lawyer to help us , and he did on all fronts, emotionally and physically were in a tail spin but he pulled us through with as fair a judgement that could be expected and a very reasonable fee for all the time ( and time is money) that he devoted to our case. My sense is we would not have had such a favorable outcome if we were represented by someone else. His office staff was great too!

Saved Me Lots of $$$$$
At my consultation Mr. Stark discovered that I was living in an illegal apartment. Mr. Stark was able to have all of my arrears waived and I was allowed to stay in the apartment 4 months rent-free.

Excellent Landlord/Tenant Attorney
My case was explained to me thoroughly from inception to end. I would highly recommend using this attorney for any landlord/tenant matters.

HORRIBLE ATTORNEY
JUST HORRIBLE. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS AGAIN WITH BRIAN A. STARK. I DEALT WITH BRIAN A. STARK FOR THE FIRST AND LAST TIME AS A LANDLORD AROUND 8/2012. HE DID EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THE WHOLE EVICTION PROCESS IN NYC WORKS. I THEM PAID THE $1000.00 FEE HE REQUIRED FOR A BRONX, NYC EVICTION. THE ONLY THING HE DID FOR ME WAS SERVE MY TENANT. SINCE THEN HE NEVER RETURNED ANY OF MY PHONE CALLS. THE ONLY CONTACT I HAD WAS THROUGH HIS SECRETARIES WHICH WOULD TELL ONLY TELL ME THAT MY CASE IS BEING PROCESSED. I DID GO THE THE OFFICE TWO TIMES IN PERSON WITH NO RESULTS. I KNEW FOR A FACT THE THE TENANT NEVER ONCE RESPONDED TO ANY COURT DATES GIVEN TO HIM. I UNDERSTAND THE NYC TENANT/LANDLORD LAWS ARE FAVORED TOWARD THE TENANTS. BUT, BRIAN NEVER ONCE RETURNED ANY PHONE CALLS OR HIS OFFICE NEVER KEPT ME POSTED ON ANYTHING. IT HAS BEEN 7 MONTHS WITH STILL NO CONTACT WITH BRIAN A. STARK AND NO PROGRESS ON MY CASE. AS OF 3/25/2013 THE TENANT STILL LIVES ON THE PROPERTY RENT FREE. I REFUSE TO MAKE ANOTHER VISIT TO HIS OFFICE IN PERSON BECAUSE OF MY TEMPER. MY PATIENCE HAS RUN OUT. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS AGAIN WITH BRIAN A STARK. Approximately 2 weeks after my review I got the eviction warrant from the city Marshall. i still haven't got any call from brian stark himself.
