We are grateful
Janet Esagoff and her Law Group, Esagoff Law Group, P.C. came highly recommended to our family, and fortunately for us, she turned out to be the perfect Law Group for our family. In 1948 our large family of 9, moved into our home in Great Neck Long Island, and over the years, we children moved to California, Vermont & Florida. Despite the twists and turns, deaths & births, Janet and her team stayed true to the tasks at hand. We initially reached out to Janet to evict a person from our family home which then evolved into having her handle what was a very complex process of changing the deed on the property that had been our family home for over 75 years. Following that, she successfully sold the property. One of Janet’s powers, is reading the client’s needs so that they best benefit from her expertise. To say she can read her clients, is too simple. When the time came, she researched and supplied us with three referrals for Real Estate Brokers, one of whom was Halleh Fouladi. We couldn’t have been happier. It is with sincere pleasure to highly recommend Esagoff Law Group, P.C. and particularly Janet Nina Esagoff. Wishing you the best, Dennis Murphy & Family

A Lawyer with a Conscience
Janet is great! For a reasonable, flat fee she agreed to help me when other attorneys said my case was not winnable. She is easily approachable and responds to my inquiries promptly. She not only won me a settlement, but is continuing to help me now that the debtor is trying to have the judgment vacated. I highly recommend her.

Landlord-sublease
I had the privilege of working with Janet to resolve a dispute with my landlord as a subtenant, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. Janet demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and exceptional communication throughout the process. From the beginning, Janet showed a deep understanding of tenant and landlord laws, which reassured me that I was in capable hands. She kept me well-informed, promptly addressed my questions, and tirelessly negotiated on my behalf. Thanks to Janet, the dispute is now taking care of as it should be, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney who combines legal expertise with genuine concern for their clients' well-being.

Landlord Dispute Settled
We had a prolonged dispute with our landlord that lasted for nearly a year. However, thanks to Janet and her team's prompt action and involvement, they took up our case with determination. Their persistence eventually paid off as we reached a settlement with our landlord. We are extremely satisfied with the services provided by Janet and her team, as well as the valuable advice they offered throughout the process.

Smart and Caring
When I retained Janet Esagoff, she was off on a vacation abroad. That did not derail her from putting together the Contract of Sale. Each day, she emailed me with updates and answered my questions promptly. After her return, the sale became a roller coaster ride due to dealing with an unreasonable coop board and a difficult management company. Janet and her staff dealt with my daily hysteria with kindness and sensitivity. Their professionalism went above and beyond. Even on the day of the closing, when the buyer was trying to hit me with another fee, Janet effortlessly brought it to the buyers attention that it is not in the contract. She saved me another $800. I highly recommend this firm and would definitely use again. I honestly felt like their family. The care that went into this difficult closing was incredible.

Aggressive and efficient representation
Janet Esagoff is an aggressive, efficient and highly competent attorney. I decided to purchase a pre-owned vehicle in March 2020 (the height of the pandemic in NYC) after my previous vehicle (2006 GMC Envoy) was no longer drivable. Approximately 40 days after purchase, the car died on me. After more than 10 trips to the service department of the dealership where the car was purchased, as well as another certified dealership, the car was never fixed. After contacting several attorneys, who declined to take the case, I came across Ms. Esagoff of the Esagoff Law Group. She listened to my story, empathized with my plight, deduced that the case was a contract law issue and offered to assist with resolving the matter. Ms. Esagoff was professional, but aggressive in her interactions with the dealership. She provided strategic and tactical representation and demonstrated transparency about her fees. I am happy to report, the case was concluded in my favor and the dealership was ordered to re-purchase the defective vehicle (pay off remaining balance to lienholder) and refund all expenses associated with it (repair costs, car payments, insurance, down payment, etc). Thank you Ms. Esagoff for quality representation at a reasonable price!!! I highly recommend this attorney!!!

Janet Nina Esagoff is by far the best attorney my wife and I have ever worked with. My wife and I rented an apartment and encountered legal issues with the realtor. Immediately upon mentioning our concerns, Janet outlined a detailed plan, made the process a learning experience for us, and executed the job impeccably. Janet is attentive, responsive, reliable, and communicative. Janet made it convenient for my wife and I to proceed with our lives and careers while she worked hard for us. Janet consistently checked in with us to guarantee we were satisfied with the plan and outcomes as she provided us with an advantageous experience. My wife and I could not have dreamed of better results regarding the challenges we faced with our realtor. The outcomes are due to Janet’s determination. She is the expert who makes it clear and enlightening to work with an attorney. My wife and I are more knowledgeable and prepared thanks to Janet’s guidance. I have recommended Janet to my loved ones as she is a superior legal advisor. No one ever wishes to encounter legal issues. However, I would only trust the legal hardships of my family and friends to be alleviated and addressed by Janet.

Problem Resolved!
Hired Ms. Esagoff to handle small summons and compliant. Matter was outside small claims but too small for traditional law firms to handle. Enter Ms. Esagoff. She charged a small flat fee and went to work. She was able to negotiate a settlement and matter is resolved. Very happy with her services. Would not hesitate to recommend her.

Mr.
Ms. Esagoff helped guide me through a very difficult time dealing with the sale of a house co-owned with my ex-wife. Janet Esagoff never hesitated to make herself available at a moment's notice and assisted me with any and all legal matters resulting from my case. I can truely say without Janet Esagoff's expert legal representation my legal matter could have left me in pretty dire condition. I will always be thankful for the untiring advocacy and support from Ms. Esagoff. I would recommend her to anyone facing any legal issue in which they truly need an expert who will never hesitate to go above and beyond. For that I will always be eternally grateful.
