I want to thank Adam Karhu for getting us to the finish line. The process can be stressful at time. But Adam makes sure we were well informed about everything. Thank you so much for closing the day before thanksgiving. My kids got the key to their new home just in time. I would definitely recommend Adam Karhu to anyone looking to buy a house. Excellent job Adam!!!

Lawyer for short sale
Adam was my lawyer for a short sale. I have to say this wasn't the first time I sat down at a table for the sale of a house. Anytime a document needed to be updated Adam would get up and make sure it was taken care of asap. I was highly impressed by this and had never seen a lawyer do this before. I would highly recommend using Adam for any real estate transaction. He seemed very easy going and willing to go out of his way.

Way quicker then i expected.
Adam Karhu and his staff did a great job getting us to closing quickly and staying on top of things. He explained everything to us clearly, and gave us great advice that saved us thousands of dollars in closing costs. wouldn't hesitate to use him again or to recommend him to others.

Real Estate Closing
Adam and his staff were excellent in assisting me with the closing of my mothers home. Since I reside out of state there were many phone calls and e mails to keep me informed. If I had questions or concerns they were addressed promptly and professionally. I am confident that things went as easily because of Adam and his great staff! Highly recommend!

Expert Real Estate Attorney
Adam Karhu sucessfully navigated a particularly difficult Residential sale and closing for us. The transaction was complicated and prolonged and through it all Adam gave us excellent advice and remained calm and personable to all involved despite the obstacles that arose. We would not have survived the process without him and would recommend him without hesitation for Real Estate matters.

Highly Recommended
I am an attorney practicing on the West coast, but also a member of the NY Bar. I had no prior contact with Mr Karhu, but he was recommended to my sister for a NY real estate transaction. I had the great pleasure of watching over my sister's shoulder, as he skillfully handled and closed a complex, somewhat contentious, multi-party transaction. I highly recommend him!

When it gets tough... Adam Karhu gets tougher and gets it done!!!!!!
Adam was so on top of trying to get the buyer's bank of my house that was sold in Wantagh, NY to move along after a couple month's delay, making the calls, and emails days on end for weeks so I could buy my new home in NJ... and keeping me updated along the entire journey, giving me the utmost confidence and I knew I had a good one in Mr. Karhu! Do not hesitate if you need a Real Estate attorney! He is THE ONE!

Knowledgeable and approachable
We used Adam's services to sell our property in HIcksville, NY and buy our new home in East Meadow, NY. Adam was very helpful and easy to work with. We had a few false starts; Adam was patient and guided us through the process. He was always one step ahead in checking things and pointing out the pitfalls. His guidance was accurate and made the process simpler for us. He always responded quickly to our questions and queries. I would gladly recommend Adam!

Excellent Legal Service
Adam Karhu, Esq. was referred to me by my Real Estate agent for the closing on the sale of my house. He was very professional yet very amicable. He helped me every step of the way in the handling of the legal aspect of the sale of my house. His explanations were very clear and he had the patience to answer every question I had. Mr. Karhu was always available to answer my calls and my text messages and if I had to leave a voice message, he got back to me in less than 24 hours. He sent the Contract via email and any other documents that were required to review and/or sign and email back. I couldn't have gotten a better attorney to handle my closing and his fee was more than reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Karhu for Real Estate Closings.

Awesome Lawyer!!!
I have used Adam for many of my deals, he is by far the most responsible attorney I have ever seen. He is always available to answer our questions day or night even after the closing. I would never think of using another attorney for my closings.

"Adam flawlessly handled a real estate closing for me. As a fellow attorney, I know that while legal expertise in relevant field of practice is extremely important (which Mr. Karhu defintiely has), customer service is equally important.
