Lawyer Review
I was the president of an HOA for nine years, and working with Steven and his staff has been a pleasure. I find him very knowledgeable of the law and always very responsive when I have questions and concerns.

Effective, Compassionate, Reliable
I hired Steven Waldinger to help my 90 year old mother who was being overcharged for rent by a fancy residential living facility for seniors in Westchester County. It took months for the lawyers at the residence to even respond to Steven but he stuck with the case and gave me sound advice all along the way. I felt like he really cared about what was happening with my mother. He was effective in coming up against this senior living community which as sites all over the U.S. The case ended up going the way I wanted to. I highly recommend him and would use his services again. This was my first time hiring a lawyer and it was a positive experience.

Inwood Hills Condominium
After years of hearing from our old attorney that we couldn’t remove a drug addicted tenant who overdosed on average of four or five times a year where emergency services had to be called and would be up all night pacing the floor keeping the resident below from getting a good nights sleep, I hired Steven to examine the problem. Within four months the tenant was gone. Steven was also able to remove another problem tenant who lived here for at least ten years and who broke into another unit on more than one occasion. Steven responds to my emails the same day or at the latest the next day. Both I and the Board of Managers couldn’t be happier with Steven’s knowledge, ability, and performance.

Highly Recommend
I was involved in a landlord tenant dispute for my business and was looking at a drawn out and costly legal process. Mr. Waldinger took the time to review my case and explain in detail what steps he would be taking to resolve this issue. He not only resolved my case quickly but saved me a lot of money. I found Mr. Waldinger to be extremely pleasant to talk to. He has a very nice and confident manner about himself. Additionally his office staff was equally kind and considerate when ever I talked with them. I highly recommend Mr. Waldinger for your legal needs.

Highly Recommend
I cannot recommend working with Steven Waldinger any more highly. He was supportive and compassionate as we dealt with a highly sensitive and emotional case. He responded to all correspondences quickly and took time to answer our questions. I truly believe he advised us in the best way possible and ultimately we were able to settle our case in a manner we were happy with. He is clearly very knowledgable and has his client's best interest at heart.

Landlord Tenant Law
I have been to court with Steven as a landlord a multitude of times over the last few years. I have been a landlord for 20 years and I have never had an attorney this knowledgeable and precise. We have never lost a case with him. He shows professionalism and integrity with every case and I am very grateful for him.

Quick and Effective
Steven Waldinger helped us evict a tenant who wasn't paying rent. It was an extremely difficult situation but Waldinger made it happen. What a relief! Thank you!

Operations Manager
I was tasked in looking for an attorney regarding a lease landlord issue. I found Mr. Waldinger via on online search. Mr. Waldinger responded immediately to my inquiry and took the time to listen to the issues at hand and asked indepth questions to better understand the situation. I found Mr. Waldinger and associates of the firm to be polite and professional in all verbal and written communication. Mr. Waldinger clearly explained how his firm would handle the case and was always diligent and prompt in keeping us informed. Additionally, he was confident in what outcome he could provide and delivered in this matter. I highly recommend Mr. Waldinger for any lease landlord issues as well any additional legal services they provide.

So Thankful to have found Steven
My husband and I recently faced a complicated issue at our home in which we couldn't get someone to leave. We had given the person a temporary place to stay and it turned into a very difficult and complex situation. We were referred to a different attorney at the firm who was out of town when I called. Steven took the call and immediately helped create an action planning, including having this unwanted guest served the very next day. He continued to be thoughtful, prompt, very responsive, and always balanced in his assistance. We are so thankful to have found Steven and the firm of Shapiro Gettinger Waldinger & Monteleone.

Exceptional
We have worked with Mr. Waldinger and his firm for many years for collection matters and general HOA business matters and have had many successful cases settled, collecting over 300K in bad debt. The office support staff goes out of their way to assist also. I can not say enough positive things about Mr. Waldinger and his firm!

Superior advocate
I was very impressed with Steven's assistance with a Co-op matter. He provided expert legal advice and was extraordinarily prompt and attentive. Steven began work on my case immediately after our first meeting and responded to my emails very quickly. I would recommend Steven highly.

Fantastic Lawyer
We had such an amazing experience with Steven Waldinger helping us navigate issues with our Condo Board. He really knows the law, is very intelligent and immeasurably helpful. We closed the issues with complete victory, and he was not looking to rake us over the coals financially. I cannot recommend him enough. Nobody ever hopes to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do, do not hesitate to call him. He is a wonderful advocate and very quickly and efficiently eliminated the stress of our living situation and my husband and I couldn't be happier. He is the best!

Excellent Advocate-Smart, quick, fought for me
Steven Waldinger took on a difficult case involving a condominium that was mishandled by my previous lawyer. He quickly and effectively learned the issues, communicated effectively with the opponent, and brought a long case to a close in short order. He did not give up and was willing to fight for me. I am so happy I found him.

Excellent Attorney
Steve has represented my Condominium for many years providing knowledgeable, responsive and timely professional legal advice. The importance of having good, reachable counsel as our Condominium does not have a professional Property Manager is vital for us and how using Steve's services has benefited our community. Steve is more than an attorney, he is the type of person you would be proud to have as a friend.
