Buying and Selling Home
Stephen and his team - Ginamarie in particular - were wonderful helping us sell our apartment and buy a new one. The processes involved in New York are complex and confusing, and Stephen and company were helpful every step of the way, including providing helpful information included in our contracts during the entire process. I had such pleasant interactions with them and would highly recommend them for both home purchases/sales or any other service they offer!

Looking for an attorney, who cares?
"I had the pleasure of working with Stephen Orsetti for my recent real estate transaction, and I can't recommend him enough! He went above and beyond to ensure I felt supported throughout the process. I always had access to him when I needed it. But what truly set him apart was his approachability and warmth. He made an often-complex process enjoyable. His expertise and professionalism were evident in every step of the way. If you're looking for an exceptional real estate attorney who genuinely cares, look no further!!"

Extremely happy with my lawyer!
I have known Stephen Orsetti for over 12yrs. He helped me with my divorce case 10yrs ago. He was my closing attorney when I bought my house and when I sold it 8yrs later and moved to NC. Even though I'm in NC now, Stephen is always glad to answer any legal questions I may have. I have and will continue to highly recommend Stephen Orsetti to all my NY friends and family

Review for Stephen Orsetti
This lawyer was very helpful settling my deceased mother's estate. He dealt with probate, through the court system. He helped with the closing of my mother's condo. He gave good advice about how to set up(with a very good recommendation) an estate account with a bank. He was responsible for distribution of the assets, according to the will. Overall, an excellent job!

Friction-fee service in a real estate transaction
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The process of closing on our first home went smoothly thank to Stephen and his team. They were detail oriented, timely and highly responsive. A real estate transaction has a lot of moving parts, but we were able to leverage Stephen's expertise to get to closing on time and without any issues.

Great lawyer with a great attitude
Steve is a wonderful guy who knows what he's doing and pays close attention not only to his own work but the work of others involved in a transaction. He caught mistakes made by others on several occasions, any one of which could have - if left unfixed - tanked my closing.

Great Attorney!
I was t-boned by another driver in March of 2019 and, as a result, ended up needing shoulder surgery in February of 2020. I consulted with a different attorney right after the accident and was given bad information. A couple of weeks after my surgery when the other attorney was still not being very helpful, I got in touch with Stephen and the rest, as they say, was history. Stephen took my case close to a year after the accident and hit the floor running! I honestly had no idea how much my case was worth, but he got me much more than I was expecting, and did so in a seamless and painless way. Stephen was so easy to work with, and just seems like a really nice, down-to-earth guy. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal services!
