Foreclosure Litigation at its Finest!
Mr. Friedman's knowledge of N.Y. State Mortgage Foreclosure Law is unsurpassed. His abilities to spot deficiencies, inaccuracies and any defects within Foreclosing Lenders loan documentation and Foreclosure Action come second nature, and his use in Foreclosure Defense litigation as a tool used for settlement negotiations to achieve his clients most favorable outcome is top notch. He has a well staffed office with many proficient and capable employees and assistants and is always a pleasure going into the office. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Great Attorney with a wealth of experience and knowledge
Lee was a tremendous help. He understood our situation and guided us in the right direction. He has a background on both sides of the foreclosure process and this showed at one of the hearings we had at court. He found an error that the banks attorney did not even see. You had to see the look on the bank attorneys face when the mediator told her she was wrong. We wound up with a great modification deal and are currently living in our house with a mortgage payment we can afford. I have dealt with a lot of attorneys over the years, but Lee is by far the best I have hired. Give him a call and see for yourself.

From the very first day I met with Lee and Joe I had a very good feeling that I was in the right hands. For five years, I was denied a modification twice and was told by other attorneys to not waste my time, start looking for rentals...I would never get approved. After I had my home go into auction for the first time, a friend introduced to Joe who told me to come and meet with him and Lee to see what they could do to help me and my family. I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made meeting with them. From day one they did everything they could to help me and guide me through this very stressful situation. They were upfront and honest and said it is definitely going to be a battle but they assured me they would do everything they could to help me get approved for a mod. After a few months of going back and forth and needing to get another stay to delay my 2nd auction, I got the best phone call I've had in years, telling me to come into the office, you need to sign the paperwork you've been approved for a modification!! It was a very emotional time and such a great feeling to know I had people that truly did what they said they were going to do and they helped keep me and my family in my home! I am a huge fan of everyone at this law firm and would recommend them to everyone and any person that is in need!

Great service
First and foremost thank you to Lee and his wonderful team. From our first meeting we knew that they were the right choice. They showed us so much compassion as we discussed our concerns. Throughout our modification process Joe and Sandy were just a text or phone call away literally all hours of the day. They stayed on top of everything that was going on and put my wife and myself at ease thru such an uncertain process. We couldn’t have found a better firm to represent us. We are extremely satisfied and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you guys so much!!!

Loan Modification saved my home
Contacted this firm for help getting a mortgage loan modification after I fell behind on my payments while in bankruptcy protection. They helped me file all the necessary paperwork after I dismissed my bankruptcy case and worked with the mortgage company to get my request approved. This saved my home from foreclosure and gave me a peace of mind.
