I have worked with Ken for the past 23 years and it has always been a very positive experience. He is quick to respond to any questions posed to him and always finds a resolution. He is trustworthy and very knowledgeable and his service is impeccable.

I have placed my trust in Ken Gould (and associates) for over 30 years in all our real estate dealings and personal affairs and have never had a moment of dissatisfaction with the professionalism, knowledge, advice, timeliness and thoroughness that Ken provides. His attention to details and his manner of approach in making all parties understand a matter is a quality I find rare in many other attorneys I have encountered. I can't recommend anyone more highly than I do Ken Gould

Kenneth J Gould Performance
Ken was recommended as a top notch, first class, experienced, knowledgeable litigator who could deal with a difficult imploding Real Estate deal. Ken lived up to his reputation. He immediately understood the issue and was in action within hours. The adversary knew of Ken and changed their approach immediately...we closed within 10 days. Best part, a pleasure to deal with..VERY responsive...did what he said he would when he said he would...excellent experience

Ken does not stop until the deal gets completed
Ken is a responsive and loyal to his clients through good times and bad. He does not stop until the deal gets done. He has an ability to close deals that other attorney's find confusing. Ken is capable and a pleasure to work with from the simplest of closings to the most complicated. Ken's fee's are fair and his paperwork is organized. Above all, Ken is honest.

Consumate Professional
I have been working with Kenneth Gould on the purchase of an apartment in Manhattan. He has been on top of all elements, explaining the ins-and-outs of a process with which i am unfamiliar. He has been extremely thorough in reviewing the intricacies and details required in a real estate purchase - offering excellent council. Looking forward to working with him for the remainder of my purchase.

Terrible experience!
We hired Mr. Gould to represent us in our home purchase years ago. Just prior to the closing, Mr. Gould notified us that the current owners of the house wanted to close but then stay in the house after the closing because their next residence wasn't ready yet. We were not comfortable with that, and naturally worried about something happening to them or the property that would be our responsibility. Our former apartment had been rented out as of the closing date, essentially rendering us homeless. We communicated all of this to Mr. Gould, who told us we had no choice and if we backed out of the deal we'd lose our deposit. Can you imagine buying a home for the first time and then being told you have to close but aren't allowed to physically take possession? Per the seller's attorney, Stephen Holden III, unless we agreed to this, the former owners would refuse to show up to the closing and we'd lose our deposit. How ethical was it that the seller's attorney, while looking out for his clients, had no problems putting the screws to us? The details of this cost us an extra $600 in legal fees to Mr. Gould. Surely there must have been something Mr. Gould could have done to better represent our needs, either closing on the date in the contract or getting us out of the deal without losing money, but he did neither and seemed to resent the fact that we felt this arrangement was not acceptable. He violated the trust we had in him to protect our interests.
