An Attorney Who is Competent, Trustworthy, Intelligent and Kind
Renata Landskind has been my family counsel for just about 17 years. When I first met Renata, she was handling a lawsuit for my great aunt. Since that time Renata was always my go-to attorney in any of my legal matters. She is consistently knowledgeable, professional, pleasant, kind, patient, responsive, trustworthy, intelligent and sharp. Renata will without question look after your best interest. For 17 years I have reached out to Renata with professional matters and personal family matters. I have referred clients, family members and friends to her for legal representation. I have never once been disappointed in the feedback I received. She takes nothing lightly and whatever is important to you is essential to her. I say this with full confidence that Renata Landskind is one of the best in her field. I consider her an asset in my circle and in the community she represents. If you decide to retain Renata, you will surely have an accomplished, competent and talented attorney in your life.

I would like to add to add to the many positive reviews of Renata Landskind. We recently used her firm for a real estate closing of my mothers' home in Brooklyn. She was the ultimate professional. She advised on legal issues as well as tax and obviously real estate issues . She was very attentive to our concerns and utilized emails, text and phone to keep us informed of the negotiations. Most importantly, her experience and advice proved invaluable in our negotiations with the buyer.The closing could not have been any easier due to her preparation and negotiation skills . I highly recommend her firm to all. Mike

Renata Landskind
I first used Renata’s services some 15 years ago to prepare my will and some other related documents. More recently, I hired Renata’s services to prepare my family’s Estate Planning documents. The entire process was a stress-free experience. Simply put, Renata never disappoints. She is knowledgeable, courteous, accessible and responsive to all our needs – even making a house-call when my husband was unable to travel. I have, and continue to recommend her to my extended family members as well as neighbors and friends.
