3 purchases, 3 great experiences
Currently I have used Amy for my last 3 purchases. Aside from that speaking volumes, she has always been kind, courteous, and willing to take time to make sure I understand every detail. She has always been willing to go above and beyond the standard responsibilities of a closing attorney to make sure I have everything I need to successfully close on a house. She has always protected my interests and steered me away from potential conflict. Highly recommended!!!!

Excellence in Real Estate Representation
Amy has been my attorney since she began her practice. Without hesitation I hired her for four closings in 2002, 2017 and 2020. Amy has provided excellent legal representation consistently over the years. On the occasion I need an attorney, whether for real estate, or another matter, I call Amy with my fingers crossed hoping she’ll be able to represent me. Amy is knowledgeable, prompt in her communication and understands her clients needs. There is no other attorney I’d trust with my will preparation and was thrilled when she let me know she can assist me with such a sensitive matter. I know I am in good hands and will be treated with care by my attorney of choice Amy Berkowitz-Ortiz.

Amazing!
I hired Amy as my real estate attorney for my first home. Needless to say, I had so many questions regarding the contracts and all the other legalities involved. Amy was so thorough and patient in explaining everything to me. She was always available when I had questions. Her vast knowledge made me feel so at ease with the biggest purchase of my life. I would without a doubt recommend her!

Real Estate Attorney for House Closing
Amy Berkowitz-Ortiz was amazing to work with for our house closing. She worked on our contract which was not your typical contract due to personal financial issues that needed to be delicately handled in the contract. She ironed it out to work perfectly for us with the sellers attorney. We had a very difficult real estate agent that we had to deal with on the sellers end. She handled all of the communication once the agent starting calling us and texting us daily with demands that were not her decision to make or contact us with. Our mortgage was not a straight forward situation and she made sure the legal end with the sellers worked best for our needs. Our closing went smoothly without any surprises or hitches due to her expertise. She was always easy to get in contact with when ever we had a question, concern or issue. She was very responsive and always called us back or emailed us within a very timely manner. We highly recommend Amy, and will definitely use her again!

Amy is an amazing chapter 7 lawyer
Ms. Berkowitz is very knowledgeable with regards to filling Chapter 7 and the laws within New York State. She handled my case with respect, integrity and confidentiality. Bankruptcy was a very difficult time for me, but Amy was there to help me through it all with patience and understanding. She exhibits good judgement and professionalism. I am very thankful I found her and that she was there to help me through this difficult time in my life.

Amy's exceptional understanding and easy translations of the law kept me updated and fully prepared for an amazing experience.

I highly recommend Amy.
I was in a terrible financial situation, and to tell you the truth I wasn’t really familiar with my options about filling bankruptcy, but I knew I had to do something. I was referred to Amy from a friend of mine, and I’m so glad I was. I left a message for Amy and she got back to me immediately. After my consultation with her, I knew she was the right choice for me. Amy was extremely professional and accessible, she made this process very easy and would always answer my phone calls and emails if I had any questions. Everything went very smoothly, and I’m forever grateful to her. If you’re looking for a lawyer that genuinely cares about helping others and finding a solution to your problem, go with Amy. Amy is not only knowledgeable, experienced, and detail oriented, but she’s also extremely kind, and she really knows what she’s doing!

My Bankruptcy Case
Amy helped me with my Bankruptcy and financial problems. I was scared out of my wits not knowing what my future held for me and my family. Amy went above and beyond for me. She guided me every step of the way and most of all she made me feel at ease. Even when I became annoying with phone calls she always answered my calls or called me back in a timely manner. Her professionalism was outstanding, so much so that I recommended several of my friends and family members to her as well. They all made it a point to call me and tell me what a wonderful experience they had with Amy. I do highly recommend that if anyone ever is in need of a lawyer to call Amy Berkowitz-Ortiz. You won't regret it! I have only the utmost respect for her and what she does to help families in their time of need. Thank you Amy for all you have done and more!
