Rarely was able to speak directly with her after retaining her services. Her staff makes you feel as if they are bothered by your call, they are dismissive, forgetful and predominantly guess when you ask them specific questions. If you have time-sensitive questions you will not receive a timely answer, if you receive one at all. Either she takes on too many clients at once, or she is not great at her job, or perhaps both. Either way hiring her was a regrettable experience.

So how did I find this awesome lady? At a homebuyer's education workshop held by CDCLI. She presented and I told my boyfriend right then and there, oh she's ours! We're definitely choosing her to be our attorney. BEST DECISION made! She's so witty and on her game! She helped me throughout my whole process. She gave me advice on what to do what not to do, what to ask what not to ask during my home search. She offered kind words of encouragement when I lost accepted offers to cash buyers and higher offers. She never once made me feel like the only time I could speak to her was once I was ready to sign a contract. She always let me know "any time." She answered all my questions and promptly. Then when I finally got an accepted offer that stood, and came in to sign my contract, I met her amazing staff! They are just as awesome, especially that ANNIE!! The closing table, WHOA! what an overwhelming experience! But Michele explained everything to us in layman's terms and eased our stresses. Even my father-in-law (total hard ass) was impressed with the way she explained ALL those documents. I would recommend her to any and everyone who needs a real estate attorney.

Michele Messina and her staff handled a difficult real estate deal in the most efficient and professional manner. NY banks are taking so long to give a mortgage, that it is easy for deals in other states to fall through when moving out of NY. Her recommendations as a consult were exact. Her staff was extremely courteous and knowledgeable, which is a reflection on her. The other lawyer in my real estate deal did not specialize in real estate and much could have gone wrong and fell through the cracks, if not for Ms. Messina going above and beyond what needed to be done on both ends. She will insure that her client is satisfied in their real estate deal. She is the best lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I highly recommend her as a lawyer.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Michele Messina and all of her staff. They made a very stressful situation extremely manageable. Hands on guidance the whole way. We were recommended to this firm and are so happy we took our realtor's advice. Thank you again for a job well done.

Michelle Messina is a shark. She will fight for everything that you need and deserve. When there is a problem, she does not back down or waiver. It does not matter how long she has to battle; she does it. If I ever have to move again, there is only one lawyer I would use: Michelle Messina.

I would like to compliment Michele R. Messina with handling the purchase of our home, while we had issues with our bank, Michele and her paralegal Jenn worked diligently to overcome every obstacle that was thrown our way. Her office staff made me feel comfortable everytime I called, and Jenn was extremely helpful keeping my husband and I updated with phone calls at least once daily and always with a follow up email. I would recommend Ms. Messina to anyone who is looking for a real estate attorney!

We used Michele Messina in 2008 for our sale and purchase. She did an outstanding job. We just used her again for a sale and purchase and we cannot say enough about her. She is the most educated and knowledgeable Real Estate Attorney out there. She is extremely thorough and makes her clients best interests her priority. She is the attorney you want on your side of the table, hands down!

Recently my husband passed away and within months I needed to make a lot of life changes. One of which was selling my home as soon as possible. Ms. Messina and her wonderful staff lead me through the entire process from contracts to closing, as hard as it was to sell my home and while still grieving my husband, I didn't have to worry and follow up and stress about the sale of my home. Whenever I called the office the staff was efficient and friendly and all the girls in the office were up to speed on what was happening with my file. Ms. Messina and her office made this so easy for me and I am very appreciative of all their hard work. I would recommend Michele Messina and I would definately use Ms. Messina for any legal issues in the future. She was outstanding!

Ms. Messina was the bank attorney for our closing. The Seller's attorney failed to obtain the proper pay-off letter from his client's lending institution and the loan was in foreclosure. Ms. Messina and her staff jumped into assisting the Seller's Attorney and after making numerous calls to the lender and the attorney's for the Seller's Lender, we were able to save the closing. We had no where to live as of that day and if it was not for her and her staff, we would have been homeless. Her staff was so professional, I cannot say enough about them!!! Thank you ladies....
