Highly Recommend!!
I used the law firm of Ronald D. Weiss to avoid foreclosure post-pandemic. We took a chance and met with this firm and immediately recognized we were in good hands. Our team consisted of Misty, Gina, Ryan, Brandon and Mark. They were attentive, understanding, excellent communicators and ALWAYS ahead of the curve in terms of strategy and filings. I always new where the case stood and what the next steps were. Legal fees were fair, and there was nothing hidden or surprising. Honestly, they were positive and empowering during a difficult period. We filed a modification which was not accepted by our lender, and we pivoted to a Chapter 13. When our case was confirmed, I think our team was just as happy as we were. I highly recommend this firm of top-notch legal professionals. I trust them implicitly.

Thanks
Ronald took a look at the several years of tax debt that I had created and figured out how to help me. He negotiated a settlement with the IRS for a fraction of what I owed so that I could finally be free of the debt and move on without this weight on my shoulders. Thank you for all your help.

Saved me from Foreclosure
My home was in foreclosure and I had heard about Ronald Weiss from a friend. Through my retention of Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. I received resolution by receiving a HAMP program modification and our payment was lowered. The result was what we had hoped for and we were totally satisfied with the outcome. Particularly, Diane Picarello was a pleasure to work with and handled the entire process professionally with courtesy. She always returned my calls and emails and even listened to my personal stories. Diane was soothing to the soul and I really appreciated that I was never stressed out or worried about the outcome. This firm comes highly recommended, and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Saved me from Foreclosure
I received a letter from Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. in the mail less than 10 days before the scheduled auction on my home. Before retaining Mr. Weiss to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy, I was having a lot of difficulty with my mortgage company. I had tried speaking with the mortgage company’s representatives as well as the legal aids at Mineola Supreme Courthouse where the auction notice was filed and still never understood my rights or the options available to me until I spoke with Ronald Weiss. Because of retaining his services, the sale was cancelled/postponed immediately and the filing gave me 6 months to resolve/restructure my situation. The matter was dealt with perfectly, smoothly, and granted me a stress-free resolution from the initial consultation to the final filing. Every phone call, fax, email and in-person meeting including the court appearance was handled in a courteous and professional manner. There was never a lapse in response, the staff returning every single one of my calls and emails. Particularly, Ronald and his staff was kind and respectful in explaining my options and in representing my interests. They never made me feel guilty or like a failure for the situation I was in. No one buys a home expecting to face foreclosure. I strongly recommend Ronald D. Weiss P.C. to anyone being threatened with Foreclosure. The two most important things I want to tell other facing foreclosure/eviction: 1. Ronald Weiss is honest, reputable, trustworthy, and very experienced. (You get all kinds of unsolicited offers and many are scams to pray on people in desperate situations.) 2. I realize it may be hard to believe but once you pay Ronald D. Weiss, you can relax and then focus on repairing your credit and either saving your home or moving 5-6 months from now, under less stressful conditions with a plan for the future.

Successful Modifcation
Initially I was struggling to get a modification because the bank refused to do a hardship modification request. I received a mailing from Ronald D. Weiss and decided to go to his office for a free consultation. The matter was resolved just as I had hoped by doing a Deed in Lieu. The staff was both professional and responsive. Specifically I liked how the staff explained the entire process to us and was always there to answer any questions we had. I would recommend The Law Office of Ronald D. Weiss to family and friends.

Modification Handled Professionally
I was having difficulty handling the foreclosure on my house and was referred to Ronald Weiss through a friend. In the end my foreclosure was resolved through a modification. The matter was handled exactly as I had hoped with professional courtesy and prompt responses. I especially appreciated that the Staff was very caring, particularly Kathleen. I would definitely forward the referral to other family and friends.
