Quick Backstory: girlfriend was cheating on me. Needed to get her out my apartment ASAP. Luckily she wasn't on the lease. But unlucky for me was that lease was about to end. Which would mean she'd be a month to month tenant based on New York rules.
SOLUTION: called David on Friday evening. Monday morning holdover-eviction documents were ready.
PRICING: very reasonable and straight forward.
REWARD: Knowing I have an attorney that can make miracles happen at short notice is priceless.

David did an amazing job representing me during my home purchase. He was available when I needed assistants, easy to talk with and most of all went out his way to meet my needs. My family and I and are very thankful.

One of the best attorneys I have worked with. This was my first time having to file a holdover eviction as a landlord and first experience with housing court in general. I was nervous going into the experience, however Mr. Gerard was super cool, made me feel relaxed and at ease with the process. Easy to communicate with, understands the legal process, gives you options and explains consequences/potential results of each route. Pricing was straightforward, no hidden/surprise costs that happen with other attorneys.
My holdover case was with a tenant who did leave by the lease end date even though a notice was sent 1.5 months before lease end date. In addition, this tenant was fighting other tenants and causing property damage. Mr. Gerard filed necessary paperwork with housing courts, communicated with tenant to try to reach settlement, and provided all necessary legal documents for me to bring in front of the the judge. We were in housing court about 2 months, however during this period Mr. Gerard was able to have tenant agree to a vacate agreement to avoid eviction.
PS housing court isn't as scary as it may seem, and for context I am a landlord for private single family house. I highly recommend contacting Mr. Gerard if you have any issues related to landlord-tenant law. Thanks again for all your help.

Overall, David Gerard’s representation exceeded my expectations. From the onset of our legal relationship, David partnered with us to develop strategic case objectives to drive future case activities. I also found he was not only an advocate for my legal interests but also a practical and efficient problem solver. His responsiveness and availability was unsurpassed significantly driving of case efficiency and client satisfaction.

At first, we thought that legal counsel was unneeded when we were planning to ask our tenant to leave so that we can perform much-needed repairs on our shared residence. In hindsight, we are so relieved and thankful that we hired David Gerard to represent us. A process that we assumed would take two months at most stretched into six and a half involving an eviction, court appearances (which David and/or his colleagues had attended in our place), and an appearance by a Marshal. David helped us navigate the legal process and answered all our questions with diligence and expertise after our tenant was unexpectedly uncooperative. He provided us much piece of mind. Thank you, David!

Dave was referred to me through a friend of mine to close on a co-op in NYC. While it was a simple process, it lingered along for over 6 months, due to the lender's mismanagement. Dave was extremely patient, professional and understanding of our needs. He was always available to answer my phone calls, text messages (whether it was weekends, holidays or after hours) and always offered the right advice and watched out for my interests. He was extremely reasonable for the services he offered and did not charge me anything extra, despite all the extra time it took.
If you are in the market for a real estate attorney, you must talk to this guy.

Dave really helped me out in a difficult NYC housing situation. He presented me with the relevant legal information, the possible outcomes of different approaches based on his experience, and how others have responded in similar situations. While it turns out the letter of the law was not exactly working in my favor in this particular case, Dave was supportive of me as a person, and gave me expert counsel.
