Ariel Poltielov - Excellent Lawyer
Ariel is hands down the best lawyer I ever employed. He handled my case professionally from beginning to end, and walked me through every step of the way. He is kind, compassionate and courteous, never being judgmental about your financial situation. There are lots of lawyers out there...but very few who actually care about their clients. I would recommend Ariel to anyone at anytime! So if you’re on the fence about calling him...don't be just call…It will be the Best move you'll ever make for your case.

Highly Recommended
Mr. Poltielov listened to my recollection of the over 2 years of struggling to resolve my issue and immediately understood what needed to be done and what could be done in my favor - he took the time to explain his plan until we were both assured and in agreement. In less than 5 months it was settled. I am forever grateful.

Excellent Lawyer with a Heart!
I have been working with Ariel around 6 to 9 months. I found him very professional, personable, willing to talk with me on the telephone and prompt in returning emails. He did a nice job explaining things to me. He was able to negotiate my timeshare case to a very low amount. I am thankful he took on my case and helped me. If he had been the first attorney assigned to me over the past 3 years, I believe my case would have been over sooner. He helped me prevent foreclosure of my timeshare.

5th LAP church
Mr. Ariel Poltielov was our attorney for a case regarding a tax lien/auction situation with regards to our church property and the state/city of NY. We are very satisfied with the positive outcome of the case, and are extremely appreciative and satisfied with Mr. Ariel for his service. Service highlights: 1. his honesty and clarity regarding our case and the possible hardships and outcomes we should prepare for. he did not mislead us with false hopes, he shared clearly the reality of the situation (with a possibilty for success) 2. his quick actions in expediting necessary filings, his quick responses to our calls and communications. 3. Given the hardship of the 2020 Covid 19 court closures and modifications, Mr.. Ariel was still able to work our case patiently yet aggressively, and he shared with us so that we can also maintain our patience and hope for resolution. 4. His financial charges were fair and very clear in his billing. this affirms his honesty and clarity with those he represents. 5. his calm demeanor is important, especially when the customer is dealing with a stressful situation. 6. his experience is reflected in a good relationship with judges, plaintiffs, other attorneys...though not directly observed but the successful outcome of case and certain meetings documented do indicate this. I would strongly recommend the hiring of Mr. Poltielov. We plan to continue to use his services. I wish he'd open an office in Manhattan , since we are in Manhattan

Ariel is really the BEST of the Best!!! He has lived up to all the great reviews that I've read prior to working with him. Ariel negotiated with my bank to settle my foreclosure case, within a week of my 1st meeting with him, he had an offer from the bank that I thought was too good to be true. He is knowledgeable, professional and dedicated to helping his clients. If you need legal assistance with a foreclosure, don't hesitate to call Ariel, I'm so happy that I did!!! He is truly amazing, a GOD send!!!

Great Attorney
My husband and I hired Ariel Poltielov because our home was in foreclosure. From the beginning he answered all of our questions and explained all aspects of our case. He is experienced and very professional. After several months we are out of foreclosure and have a loan modification. I highly recommend Ariel.

I Highly recommend Rafael Ariel Poltielov
I had one of the easiest and best experiences with my attorney Rafael Ariel Poltielov. He was extremely professional and very patient in helping me with the selling of my house. He was very responsive on the phone and via email. He took the time to explain anything I did not understand and was very organized through out the entire process. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate lawyer.
