Top notch Philly RE attorney!
Alan represented me in a number of cases and has always been my go-to attorney to bounce questions off of before going through a transaction. He is also honest in that he helps to determine whether there are more cost effective options available to me before hiring him. He keeps me informed throughout the proceedings and is definitely an attorney you want on your side. When it comes to real estate matters and getting through the Philadelphia court system to rule in your favor, Alan's experience is second to none.

Hi Alan - Thanks so much for you assistance on clearly up an on-going abatement snag that we were having with the City of Philadelphia! Between the Philadelphia Tax Department and OPA I was beginning to lose hope; however, you stepped in and explained exactly what I needed to do in order to push the abatement for a new home on Boyer Street through the final stages for approval from the City.

Mortgage Refinance
Working with Alan on my mortgage refinance was great. My situation was a bit more complicated than your typical refinance and I was looking for guidance and peace of mind that everything was done correctly. I definitely felt secure through the whole process and had a successful result in the end!

Sale of our home
Alan represented my husband and I with the sale of our house. His expert knowledge made this entire process smooth and painless. Whenever we called him, he answered the phone and he ensured we understood each procedure and document signed. He made sure we weren't taken advantage of by the other parties’ representative and provided advice and guidance throughout the entire transaction. I would recommend Alan to my friends and family.

Helped me out of a huge bind
I was referred to Alan by a trusted colleague of his who highly recommended him. I had an urgent last minute issue and Alan got back to me within hours of contacting him. He was extremely responsive the entire time we corresponded, was very thoughtful in terms of when I would/wouldn't use his services, and was resourceful in finding out information on my behalf that informed my decision to use counsel or not, even when it meant the outcome was that I didn't need to retain him. I felt well looked after as an individual and thought Alan was more than fair and kind in explaining next steps and when to bring him in to resolve the situation. I highly recommend him.

Highly Recommend Alan!
If it was possible to give Alan 6 stars out of 5, I would! Alan was great to work with and represented us as a real estate attorney. From the moment we found him on Yelp, his response time was immediate. Overall, Alan is quick to respond, thorough, and patient. Whether it is through a call or emails, he’s easy to a get a hold of especially when we had questions that needed to be answered in a timely manner. He was able to walk us through the process ensuring we had everything covered along the way. We kept him looped in throughout the process with the real estate agent, so whenever we spoke with him he was already up to date on the material. During close, he walked us through each and every single page of the contract. It was so helpful to have him translate all of the legal and complicated terms into plain English!  Additionally, there was some paper work that was missing and some language that needed to be clarified in the contract that he corrected/asked for. High attention to detail and knows the process well. Again, nothing but good things to be said. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and I will absolutely go back to him for other topics. I highly recommend if you are looking for a real estate agent to have Alan represent you!

Excellent Attorney - Real estate purchase
In purchasing a condo, Alan guided me through the entire process. He helped me structure an negotiate my offer so that my deposit would be protected. He reviewed my condo documents and explained the most important parts. He thoroughly reviewed my settlement statement to make sure that all the fees and charges were legitimate. Finally, he attended the closing with me to make sure my interests were protected. Throughout the entire transaction, Alan promptly responded to any questions I had, which i found valuable. I definitely would recommend him to a prospective real estate purchaser who is not familiar with the process and needs an experienced real estate attorney to guide them.

Alan Nochumson review
While in the middle of an enervating and stressful residential property sale, Alan was able to smooth things out. I’m happy to say that he didn’t just sit back and draft paperwork because he was involved with the entire process. He helped resolve a balance transfer issue and often consulted my wife and me on confusing matters. Alan possess a great expertise and he was always able to assist in a professional and sincere manner. Thanks Alan.

Great Experiences
We originally were referred to Alan Nochumson for a Private Equity Real Estate investment transaction. We did several deals together and recently completed a large commercial lease/business transaction. Although the latter took a long time on the Landlord side and with many hurdles, Alan navigated efficiently and professionally over these obstacles, and persisted to the very end with a successful conclusion. The best review/advice that I could ever provide is that Alan has earned all our business now and in the future and I would refer him to any family, friends or business associates without any hesitation.

Excellent representation
We were involved in a Landlord-Tenant dispute and hired Alan to represent us (as the Tenant). We were extremely happy with the choice we made. Alan worked diligently on our case, always made sure to get our approval before moving things forward with the opposing counsel, and was available any time we tried to contact him. We would recommend Alan to anyone in an instant, and he made navigating and dealing with a bad Landlord situation as easy as it could have been.

Excellent & trustworthy real estate attorney
I would highly recommend Alan Nochumson for real estate transactions. He is fair, thorough, responsive and gets things done in a very “21st century” way: e.g., given our tight timeline, was willing to meet on a Sunday to review the transaction and strategize about our offer. He was a true partner, as he vigorously negotiated a residential land purchase on our behalf and saw the transaction to completion. Alan operates with a strong sense of professionalism and at the same time is “real” and personable. I immediately felt that I could trust him and would most definitely work with him again should the opportunity arise.
