Needed help from out of state.
I live in FLORIDA and need to sell a house in NY. Mr. Glass and his team handle all the closing documents. They always respond to my emails very promptly, and worked very hard to get it right the first time. I am very pleased I chose Mr. Glass to represent me.

Excellent
I used Gerard for real estate law as a first time homebuyer. Gerard explains everything in full detail and in laymen's terms. Stacie is extremely communicative and always answered my questions. I felt like Gerard treated me as his family and truly wanted what was best for me. I would highly recommend his office.

This is the best Laywer money can buy hands down.
Gerard Glass is what your looking for in a lawyer. Gerard Glass and his associates are there when you need them they are extremely responsive, from start to finish. Lets just say they get the job done. With out Gerard Glass and his associates, I wouldn’t have been able accomplish breaking my lease from a complex that’s been giving me the run around since day one. They not only broke my lease they got me my return and security back. Having them on my side made it easier for me, it got my voice heard, and accomplished what I needed done in a professional manor. I just wanted to say thank you guys for everything. Thank you - Anthony Luciano

Amazing law firm!
I was first referred to Gerard Glass through my former lawyer, a retired judge who was no longer in practice, and I could not be happier with the results. In the past year, I have had a closing handled, an LLC created, and a legal matter responded to concerning a non-profit organization on which I serve as a Board member. The experience I’ve had with Mr. Glass, and every member of his team with which I have interacted, has been stellar. Mr. Glass is now working on a will/trust for me and a fellow Board member is using him for a legal matter. You can’t go wrong with this team.

Job well done!
Mr Glass did an excellent job helping my daughter through a tough emotional time in her life. Always answered any and all of her concerns with respect and understanding. His legal expertise in this matter was spot on, we had every confidence that the outcome would be in our favor and it was. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation.

Would Recommend!
Used Gerard Glass for my husband and I to get on the deed for my mom’s house and for all us to have an agreement since we are moving in together. A friend suggested Gerard to us and are so lucky she did. His office was very responsive and answered all our questions. The paralegal Maureen was very helpful as well and assisted us through the process and was very knowledgeable. A+++++. Would 100% recommend.

Very professional and knowledgable
We retained Mr. Glass for real estate transactions and consulted with him on municipal matters and estate matters. Each time, he was very professional and responsive to our needs and inquiries.

No integrity
Went for consultation and got a very bad impression. Very hard to get any useful information, kept changing his point of view. I left feeling like I had wasted my time and hadn’t really understood how he would assist with my legal problems.
Response from Gerard Glass August 12, 2019
I am disappointed you feel this way. Unfortunately because you did not leave any contact information and posted this anonymously, I cannot respond to the circumstances or offer further clarification. Of course I welcome you to contact me directly to discuss this matter.
