Stop Sign Ticket
Five stars all the way for the Law Offices of Douglas Scheinman! Douglas went above and beyond to help me fight off points for a stop sign ticket. His communication throughout the process was exceptional, keeping me informed and reassured every step of the way. It's evident that Douglas is an expert in his field, as he effortlessly navigated the legal complexities and delivered the best possible outcome for my case. Without hesitation, I would turn to him again for any legal matter and highly recommend his services to friends and family. Thank you, Douglas, for your outstanding representation!

Absolutely Fantastic
Hire him!! He is absolutely fantastic! He has a rather calm approach to his clients, which is extremely helpful in stressful court situations. He had great communication throughout the process. Scheinman stays focused on his client wishes while providing a refreshing perspective that is supportive. I was able to win my case because of this talented lawyer. I am incredibly grateful because he treated me as a human being with his kind guidance as a lawyer.

An Empathetic Lawyer does exist
I hired Mr. Scheinman about 3 years ago to handle my divorce and also for the purchase of my home. He was professional and showed me all my options. It was a very stressful divorce and he couldn't have been more empathetic. I never expected a lawyer to have a "human" side but he genuinely has a good heart and doesn't treat his clients like just a paycheck. If you need someone who knows what they're doing and is actually responsive to emails and calls etc. and works with you for your benefit and not just their own, HIRE HIM. He made my life so much easier in dealing with my whole mess. I even went as far to recommend Mr. Scheinman to my Ex-husband in his future divorces. He knows his stuff. As for the Real Estate side, he did an amazing job also. I can't thank him enough for walking me through the whole transaction.

Divorce Attorney
Attorney Scheinman represented me in my divorce case. From our initial consultation to the conclusion of the case, I found Mr. Scheinman to be extremely helpful in navigating the ins and outs of my particular case. Very professional and responsive to all queries, easy to talk to and very proactive in moving my case forward. He did not always tell me what I wanted to hear but more importantly told me what I needed to hear. Many thanks

Hire him!
If there were a 6th star, Doug Scheinman would get it. I retained him to represent and help me through one of the hardest times of my life which was a divorce. He works silently with the utmost professionalism, knowledge and determination to get the end result you expect. All with a kind, patient and understanding demeanor. He has never failed to respond to a message or email or any request/question for that matter. A great sense of humor and personality guides you from beginning to end. An absolute pleasure to recommend to anyone needing an attorney.

One of the best lawyers in NY
Mr. Scheinman is easy to talk to and took a real interest in my case. My ex was being irrational and asking the Court for additional money that I didn't think was fair. The Judge was originally on the side of my ex but Doug battled hard and poked holes in her case. In the end we were successful and this would not have happened if Mr. Scheinman didn't fight for my rights. I hope I never have to go to through this again, but if I did, I would want Mr. Scheinman in my corner.

100% Satisfied
When I went to see Doug Scheinman for my divorce I did not know what to expect. Not only was he affordable and knowledgeable but he was always honest with me throughout this whole process. Not to mention he was extremely friendly and understanding of all of my fears and worries. He explained everything to me so that I would understand everything that was going on during this difficult process. He also made me feel extremely comfortable and made the whole situation as easy as could be expected under the circumstances.

Hassle free divorce
This firm was extremely accommodating and made a difficult time very smooth. This was my first time inquiring about legal services and they were very knowledgeable and patient with me through the whole process. I was kept informed through out and notified about each update without having to call them. They work very fast and were professional and kind every step of the way. No headaches they handled everything, hopefully I won't be needing a divorce lawyer again but I definitely would recommend their services.

More than just a lawyer
Doug I am writing this review to thank you for all the help you gave me during my recent legal woes. You were always available and helped me navigate the legal world which is entirely foreign to me. Your advice was spot on and you delivered a result better than promised. You took time during our preliminary meeting to hear my long and complicated story and you found a way for everyone to be satisfied and wrap the matter up quickly. I appreciate you expertise and connections and you would be my first recommendation to anyone with legal issues in the new york state. Thanks again and hope I won't be seeing you anytime soon ;)

Thank you Mr. Scheinman.
Mr. Scheinman offered straight-forward advice about both my case and what I could expect from the Court. His knowledge of the law was strong and he really helped me plan a winning strategy. His experience and professionalism helped me obtain the result I wanted.I have since recommended him to several friends who have had similar positive results with Mr. Scheinman.
