Jimmy represented my husband in a 3 year legal battle with both the ex he purchased his co-op with and the bank. He won both of those for my husband. He also had to deal with an awful management company that tried to block the sale with a very slow (6 months) approval process for a purchaser that well qualified. In all instances, we were satisfied.

We hired Jaime for the purchase of our coop. It was a long process with a slow moving board. Jaime's real estate knowledge was extraordinary. His explanation of the process really helped us make the right decisions. He was patient, clear, direct, and prepared. Jaime was always quick to respond to our questions and many emails. He stayed engaged and kept us grounded though the whole process. We felt confident with him in our corner. He came recommended from several friends who have used him for landlord disputes. Highly recommend!

Mr. Lathrop has helped me on numerous occasions. Most recently in a closing for a bar in a disastrous situation with the previous owner and the management company. This took us 8 months to reach closing with tons of ups and downs, surprises, and absurd demands from the other party. Mr. Lathrop made sure I was protected the whole way, always giving me every perspective,opinion and option, even if it was one I didnt want to hear. He can be abrupt in his honesty and his approach but you only find that kind of confidence in people who know what they are doing. If you are looking for someone to defend you, be honest to you, and cover your ass on every little detail.....then Mr. Lathrop is your guy! I wouldn't use anyone else.

We needed a lawyer for a Manhattan real estate transaction and we were very fortunate to have found Mr. Lathrop. He navigated us through this process with great communication (he was always available to talk) and expert knowledge. Would work with him again anytime. Thank you!

My wife and I contacted Jamie on a rent overcharge with the DCHR. All the other lawyers that we contacted to represent us said they couldn't do it or would charge us a fee upfront. Jamie got done and did it at a reasonable rate and in a timely manner.
We enjoyed working with him and found him so refreshing and accessible. He has a no nonsense approach, was knowledgable and answered all our questions. We felt like we were in good hands and most importantly, that he was on our side. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

We hired Jaime for a real estate matter and while he was responsive through email over several months, he was not prepared at meetings, showed up late to meetings with other attorneys, and when problems came up, did not advocate for us (his clients). Jaime proved to be unprofessional, rude, and obnoxious when we needed him the most. We regret hiring him and would not recommend him to anyone.

I don't know how anyone had anything nice to say about this guy. Maybe he used to be nicer, maybe he has experienced some personal issues. But the man I had the misfortune to meet is rude, disrespectful to his clients, arrogant for little reason, lacks attention to details, neglects his duties, takes no responsibility for his delays or mistakes, and is generally a time-waster. There's plenty of competition out there - hire someone else.

I called to retain him and he was just plain mean and rude. Maybe it was just a bad day for him but beware. I am very careful to be polite with everyone so I didn't do anything to provoke him. I think maybe he was just in a bad mood but still it was truly extraordinary.

Jaime Lathrop assisted my late parent's legal firm (Goldfarb and Associates) in keeping their apartment out of the hands of an unscrupulous Reverse Mortgage Company. Mr. Lathrop at least twice successfully defended our interests at court. I am very grateful to him. We have, thanks to him, successfully negotiated the sale of the apartment.

Jamie helped with more than one issue regarding my home. He was professional, direct no nonsense kind of guy. I would highly recommend you talk to him about any legal issue that you may have. He is very reasonable and will upfront about your case and options.
