Help When I Needed
Mr. Adler has been so kind and so professional guiding me through rough areas where I needed legal help. Some things are hard to talk about. He was easy to talk to. I greatly appreciate him grounding me on what's right by law and supporting me to make the best decisions. He helped me turn a bad situation into a positive one.

Professional and Prepared
Attorney Michael Adler represented me a case where the opposing party decided to settle in the last minute instead of facing Mr. Adler's argument . Michael Adler is prepared, confident, knowledgable, and well verse in law. He understands the legal system and has great working relationships with others in the legal profession. Mr. Adler's representation really put me at ease and left me feeling confident.

Excellent Litigator and Attorney
Michael represented me, as plaintiff, in a corporate civil action. It was not an easy case and was, in fact, quite complicated - he performed wonderfully. He is tough and extremely ethical, which is probably why he is respected by the court and his fellow attorneys. My only regret is that I did not find him sooner in my search for an attorney.

Terrible lawyer
Mr. Adler will take your deposit and do nothing for your case, he cant even follow up and communicate properly. Go find another lawyer.

Took my money and did barely anything
I gave him a $1,000 retainer to help me with a property issue. He sent out probably 3 emails and that was it, no letters to the other party and no follow-ups. Of course he wont return my calls or emails. DO NOT HIRE!!!

Unprofessional and unresponsive
Unfortunately I did not read the reviews of Michael Adler before hiring him. He was unresponsive and missed a crucial deadline for a deposit on a home I was buying. I terminated him and he refused to refund any of the deposit I paid him. I am a single mom and a physician who cares for underserved populations. I did not deserve such poor treatment, but nobody does. Please do not hire him.

Barely present
Very good at the sale of services, but less so once engaged. Charged me nearly 1000 dollars and did not follow-up on a single draft. By his math, over an hour was too much.

Sleazy Guy
He disappointed me as my attorney. He crossed professional boundaries by calling me after working hours, asking me personal questions unrelated to the case, and constantly requesting to spend time with me outside working hours. It made me extremely uncomfortable. I talked to my family about it. They suggested I call the credit card company to request a refund for mr retainer fee. I did so. After I explained the situation, the credit card company issued me a full refund. When Mr. Adler became aware of this, he texted me at 2:13 AM. His tone was hostile and aggressive towards me over text. l did not respond to him until 9:22 AM later that same morning. My response was also by text and should have been enough. It wasn’t. He began to text me repeatedly for the remainder of the day with the same hostile and aggressive tone. I told him to call the credit card company about his grievances. The final text he sent me was to let me know he filed a complaint and would be mailing me and my father a final bill of service in the amount of $2500. Now, let me be crystal clear on one simple thing, not only was Mr. Adler unable to represent me as my attorney in the matter he was retained for, he also acted inappropriately and unprofessionally on more than one occasion. He is a sleazy guy and will not be paid by me or my father under any circumstance—period. I would not recommend him to anyone. He is a terrible person and a terrible lawyer. Do yourself a favor, don’t call him.

Worst advocate ever during Covid.
Michael Adler was a horrible advocate during the Covid pandemic. I’d never recommend someone this cold and cruel to represent a law case! Never hire this lawyer!

Worst lawyer
I hired Michael Adler for a particular real estate case not realizing his communication skills are horrible. This lawyer will never answer your calls or get back to you. Hire another lawyer!

Unprofessional conduct
Spoke to Mr. Adler in January, stated he could get my real estate problem resolved. Signed a contract, paid $2500.00 . He responded to my email in April when I requested to speak to him and scheduled a call time and never called. No invoice indicating anything done on case. Continued calling and sending emails no reply until 8-14-19 @ 12:45pm after I wrote on his Avvo site. End result , nothing done for me, told to get a new attorney. I now only have 30 days to get a new attorney to resolved my problem.

A fraud lawyer
Mr. Adler took 2 retainers from me and then there was no work done for the cases. Zero. When contacted he would respond only after 10 calls to him. And then be annoyed that I wanted a status on what is going on with the cases. Telling me to hire another lawyer after 5 months, After that, he totally stopped responding. Mr. Adler never gave me a bill for any work done. I paid him $3000 for one case and $2500 for another. I asked Mr. Adler for billable hours itemized bill but never got it. I sent him emails for 7 months and he did not answer even one. I have a complaint in to the disciplinary board.
