One of our best homebuying decisions!
Jeannine is absolutely, as a prior review says, a gem. As unsure first-time homebuyers who rarely need to consult lawyers for anything at all, we were lucky to find Jeannine here on Avvo. She is patient, thorough, responsive, and so, so kind. She manages to explain the intricacies of contracts and procedures with humor and clarity. She brought our stress level down many notches during this process.

Professional, Dedicated Lawyer
Jeannine was absolutely amazing in securing the closing of our home. We were first time buyers, and our case was highly individualized, however Jeannine knew exactly what to do! She is an experienced and dedicated lawyer, and always makes time for her clients.

A True Gem
Jeannine was patient and held our hand through a very long coop purchase. From detailed explanations to 5am text messages to a long drawn out closing day she was always responsive and helpful. There were a few times I thought everything would fall there and she was a great asset pointing out what was normal, what was abnormal, and giving solid advice every step of the way. Would definitely recommend!

Home Sale - Strong Client Advocate
Jeannine handled our home closing and managed a very difficult Title Company representative and a slow bank/client on the other side. She knew when to push and when to wait. When she pushed back, she was a very strong advocate who made sure our interests were maximized and our timeline was minimized. I highly recommend her.

The most trustworthy source in your home purchasing process
Purchasing a home can be a frightening process; especially when you are not completely aware of the duration of certain procedures and the costs of particular transactions. Attorney Jeannine Padula Goche was a HUGE help for my wife and I, as we were able to purchase our co-operative apartment, late 2016. When we had a doubt in the process due to other parties, Jeannine was quick to respond to our emails/calls and explain what was routine from what was abnormal and how to react. At the closing, Jeannine carefully explained every most underlying concern that we were accountable for and the responsibilities of all other interested parties. We completed the purchase with the utmost confidence that we were making the right decision and were not taken advantaged by anyone. I highly recommend Jeannine’s services to anyone.

Experienced and Highly Competent Attorney
Jeannine was the voice of both reason and wisdom during the many months of negotiations for a separation from my husband, providing guidance, support, and sympathy during a difficult time. There were many legal challenges throughout the process, which was complicated by the necessity of seeking an Order of Protection. Jeannine was responsive and efficient in responding to complications and obstacles, offering sound legal advice, resulting ultimately in a viable separation agreement.

ONLY WISH I'D FOUND HER SOONER !
I'm in the middle of selling a property to a first time buyer .. considering the number of contacts I have ALREADY had with Jeannine Goche, I see no reason to wait to post my high regards for this attorney ! In the last month, I have been blown away by her attentiveness, good humor, smarts and patience. Her response time and accessibility is unparalleled in my experience ( 17 prior real estate transactions) and sets a standard that may be hard to meet, ( I am now moving to another state). Even if I can't use her for future transactions.. Perhaps you can benefit from my experience.

Jeannine is highly knowledgeable & very responsive - highly recommend
Jeannine has been our family real estate attorney for over a decade, having worked on over 3 real estate deals with us. She is highly knowledgeable and very responsive. My husband and I will continue to utilize her service for real estate and other family-related matters. I highly recommend her.

A great attorney!!
I used Jeannine to purchase two homes and to handle the probate of my mother's estate. She's extremely knowledgeable, makes herself readily available and is really easy to talk to. I will never hire any other attorney!!

A Five Star Attorney
Jeannine is a five star attorney. She just represented us in connection with the purchase of our new home and was a lifesaver. Because of her we avoided purchasing a home with a leaky underground oil tank which would have cost us thousands to treat. We waited and found the home of our dreams and the process was seamless. I would recommend Jeannine to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She's top notch.

I would recommend her without hesitation.

Great Attorney!
She is a wonderful attorney who helped me not only with mortages, and a bankruptcy, but matrimonial matters as well. She is very attentive and responsive and really takes the time to explain the process to you thoroughly so you have a much better understanding of what's going on. I couldn't reccomend her highly enough.

She got job done
Having Jeannine as our lawyer made us feel like a situation that was out of hand was back within our control. She listened, asked intelligent questions and kept us informed of our rights and choices along the way.

One of a kind!
Incredible attention to detail and truly cares about the welfare of her clients. Trustworthy, fair and possesses a deep knowledge of the law. Straight-shooter - will tell you right up front what your chances of prevailing are. Very reasonable in terms of her billings and very responsive. I have used Jeannine for divorce, multiple real estate transactions, a variety of family law issues among other areas. Associates of mine have also used her in bankruptcy related matters.
