Very adversarial divorce case
Mitchell represented me in a very adversarial and complicated divorce case in the Rockland county Supreme Court Mitchell fought against the so called “number one attorney “ in Rockland county. Mitchell was knowledgeable and experienced and stood his ground without intimidation and with much respect from the judge. If you are looking for an attorney that’s Honest, experienced,knowledgeable,fair and most importantly responds to your concerns quickly. Mitchell is your answer Good luck to all

Three closings, all easy!
I hired Mitch for three different closings. He is honest and very helpful. Always available when I had a question, throughout the entire process. Would hire again and again!

Seperation agreement enforcement
Mr. Canter did an excellent job representing me. I had not received any of my support payments from my ex-husband for the last 17 months, nor a life insurance policy in which I was to be the beneficiary. Mr. Canters skills during the trial were unmatched. He won me the judgement against my ex-husband. I highly recommend him.

Mitchell J. Canter - Best Lawyer
If you are looking for an honest, hard-working attorney who really knows what he is doing -- you should contact and hire Mitch Canter. I have worked with Mitch for approximately 20 years and have referred him to family and friends. Simply put I am thankful I have had the privilege to work with Mr. Canter and I am truly grateful for all of his knowledge, support and professionalism. He has assisted me with real estate transactions, bankruptcy and my very recent divorce. The fact of the matter is you won't find a more genuine lawyer. He will tell you the way it is and even though times can be difficult - he is level headed and assisted me with understanding the legal system and always had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Mr. Canter - he really is one of the best lawyers around!

Helped me with bankruptcy protection
Mitchell Canter helped me with my bankruptcy protection procedure. He was kind and courteous and was patient with explaining the steps along the way of what he was doing or what I had to do. He also responded back to my questions promptly whether over email or the phone.

Down to Earth & Professional Attorney
Over the past few years, Mitch has represented me in both my divorce and bankruptcy. Mitch is down to earth which eased my nerves during one of the most stressful times of my life. He is professional, personable and guided me throughout the entire process. Mitch explained step-by-step what to expect and the possible outcome. Based on my experience, I have already recommended Mitch to one of my friends.

Excellent Attorney
Over the years I have retained Mitch for business and personal representation. He is professional, very easy to reach and talk to. I have referred him to a few friends as well and they would attest to having the same experience. You cannot go wrong choosing to be represented by Mitch.

Move on to your next choice
Seems like a nice guy. Hired as a divorce attorney. He seems like the jack of all trades but the master of none. He did not need alot of money down. You get what you pay for i guess. Not a good nogotiator. Except me, all parties, including the other side feels I got a good deal. What does that tell you. Not a real office, none or the office doornobs work. He shares (borrows) the office from a defunked engineering firm whom looks like they haven'the been there for years. He has no staff except for an answering service. Not organized..
