One of a Kind and Still Fighting
It has been eight years since Ms. Drossman and I started working together to connect with my son. She put her heart into my case, and we spent days, weeks, months, and eventually years into getting the truth out there. She got it out there and it is because of Jennifer never turning me away, even up to this past Father’s Day weekend, I am able to continue forward. I had attorneys in two other states that worked on this case, and it is because of her we have had success. She has never stopped working hard with me to try and find my son and I know I can still call her today. Jennifer Drossman is a hard worker and is relentless to get the truth out there. I love working with Jennifer, she is one of a kind.

Excellent service and advice
We hired Ms. Drossman to review a rental lease for a house rental for our daughter for college with three other students. Ms. Drossman not only did a through review but pointed out the risks and drawbacks of entering into a huge multi tenant lease agreement most of which we were ignorant of. Because of her advisement we did not sign the risky lease and feel 100 percent comfortable with our decision to live on campus. I highly recommend Ms. Drossman as she is genuinely interested in protecting her clients best interests.

Brilliant strategist
Ms. Drossman has been my attorney for many years. She has provided stellar legal services for a variety of needs including advising on estate management, development of my will and health care proxy as well as sale of properties. Each time I have worked with Jennifer, she has shared legal insights that have served to preserve my interests. Her knowledge of the law is exceeded only by her professionalism and by her responsiveness and communication skills. I particularly appreciate her sensitivity to the time constraints that I was working within. She made sure that my needs were a priority and ensured that all of the relevant deadlines were met. She addressed each of my concerns in a methodical and logical fashion reducing my stress especially when associated with the closing process for the sale of my home. She takes the complex and makes it easy to understand for lay people. I can place my total trust in Jennifer and know that she will work diligently to ensure that my interests are always protected. She is a brilliant attorney and it’s a privilege to partner with her.

Real Estate COOP Sale Closing
Jennifer was hired to handle the contracts and closing of the sale of my COOP Apartment in New York City which was my primary residence for many years. Jennifer was meticulous in attending to every detail of the closing, to include, establishing escrow accounts, paying flip taxes, reviewing and editing contracts, managing the buyer side attorney relationship, and handling last minute challenges with the self managed coop board. Jennifer eliminated all the the concerns and issues with the COOP Apartment Sale and I strongly recommend her as a professional attorney for any COOP Apartment Purchase or Sale or any other real estate transaction! Detail oriented and a pleasure to work with!

Excellent Attorney
I cannot tell you how happy I am that I found this attorney after being referred by a friend at work. If you want someone that is reasonable but tough and a strategic thinker, this is the attorney. Since I first retainer her several years ago, Jennifer has handled my Guardianship matter for my son, probated my father's estate (which was contested by my family) , handled my real estate purchase of my new home and selling my old home, and drafted my Last Will and Testament. I have also asked her to review contracts, handle an occasional traffic ticket and called her many times for advice on various issues. I know whenever I speak to her I can rely on a truthful, thoughtful response. One thing I love in particular is that she always takes into account the reality of a situation in addition to the legal ramifications which is extremely helpful in making decisions.

Divorce, Will, Real Estate - She does it all
I've had the privilege of working with Jennifer for over 5 years now. She has represented me in my divorce, has created my living will and has represented me in real estate closings. Jennifer is an extremely personable attorney, who always found ways to safeguard my interests. Her creative ideas helped me go through a contested divorce without the added burden of dealing with the legal wrangling’s that can be part and parcel of a divorce settlement. Jennifer is very responsive and takes time to research the best way to help her client. I reach out to Jennifer for any legal advice and she is always forthcoming. I would highly recommend Jennifer for representation in a divorce case, to create a living will or any real estate transactions.

Best attorney he’s ever met
I decided to meet  Jen after being recommended by a friend  who kept telling me he found the best attorney he’s ever met. I am so happy I followed up on the recommendation. Jen made  my complex life a lot more manageable.  First she  handled my divorce, which like all divorces was complex. Once I fired my prior attorney, Jen resolved  the case in a very reasonable time frame and felt a lot less painful than when I worked with my prior attorney. She explains everything in such a way that it just makes sense. As a part of the divorce, my ex-husband and I needed to sell some real estate, and he  also liked her way of conducting business so  even my ex trusted her to handle the transaction for us both, surprisingly at his suggestion!  That went perfectly smoothly.  We have a special needs child and when she was 18 I needed to file for guardianship. That went beautifully.  She’s done my  Last will and testament, special needs trust and numerous other things. I knew from the first time I went into her office that I found something special because I saw a superwoman mug in her office, which Jen said was a gift from a really  good client. I understand exactly what that client meant.

Great Communicator
Provided Great legal service throughout my divorce, it was a roller-coaster ride which I'm sure they all are, I think in the end we can all say there are no clear winners, but thanks to her great work and open communication, we were at least able to secure a more stable outcome, which in the end will benefit my son, that was my goal the day I stepped into her office. NICE JOB!

Terrific Litigator
Within the first 5 minutes of my consultation, I knew this was the attorney that I wanted representing me in my Surrogates Court action. While she was in court representing me, Ms. Drossman took a very professional, uncompromising approach in dealing with the opposing attorneys and the judge, and I got everything I asked for as a result. Her years of experience and tough attitude really comes through in her performance. I have been very pleased with the service, and support staff as well as the fairness of the billing practices. It was also impressed with her ability to strategize and work within the confines of the court system. I highly recommend this attorney and the firm Drossman & Associates.

Condo Closing
Having represented me in my first closing, my experience with Jennifer Drossman was superlative. She was knowledgeable as well as informative of the overall process and guided me through all the phases of my purchase. Jennifer's professional prowess helped to keep me focussed and secure in this experience.

Straight Shooter
Jennifer has handled a number of small cases for me over the years, the most recent involving my contesting a broken lease claim by a NYC property co. Jennifer is smart, professional and an extremely straight shooter! I recommend her highly!

Fantastic Attorney
I have used Jennifer Drossman at Drossman & Associates as my counsel on both the sale and purchase of my homes and she was excellent. She was very responsive and patient, always kept me informed and handled both transactions very smoothly. I am very lucky to have found such a competent professional who is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this attorney.

Excellent Will Preparation
My husband and I need Wills drafted quickly in advance of an overseas trip. We were referred to Jennifer Drossman and extremely satisfied with the service we received. Jennifer and her team were professional, responsible and knowledgeable. Our paperwork was drafted and executed on a priority basis and everything was done to our exact specifications. We recommend without reservation.

Get the job done lawyer
Jennifer is currently representing me in a contested divorce. After firing my prev. Atty.Who did nothing but charge me money and did nothing. Jennifer is a breath of fresh air. I was refered to her by one of her prev. clients and they were right. She's a tough fighter and dosen't back down. Yet she is so down to earth,easy to talk to, takes the time to know her clients and works with you as a team. If your willing to do some work yourself it saves you money and allows her to focus on the more important things. Thats Huge. My case is still in progress so I can't say as much as I would like to.I don't know the final outcome, thats yet to be seen. What I will say is: after interviewing other atty's. and working with Jennifer.I know I made the right choice and put my money on her. Will update when all is said and done.

I have been a client of Ms. Drossman for a number of years and no matter what the issue or concern was, she expertly handled each and every one professionally and expeditiously. Ms. Drossman speaks in laymen's terms so that you are fully apprised of the law. I have referred other friends to use Ms. Drossman and they in turn could not have been more satisfied with their results.
