Outstanding LAwyer
Michael Ostroff responded to me here on Avvo. After a very brief email exchange, he assisted me with my situation. Within 2-3 weeks, we received verification from the opposing attorney they consider this case closed. Guess who just hired Michael for their future lawyer needs, if required? I would highly recommend Michael.

Mr. Carlos Bereciartu
Mr. Ostroff was very knowledgeable about bankruptcy and foreclosure and all that has to do with mortgages, because of Mr. Ostroff understanding on this matter he helped me and my family resolved our legal problem with the house. He conducted himself with such professionalism that I highly recommend him to be your lawyer.

Highly effective and patient attorney
Our case was complicated, time consuming and required many hours of research and court time. Michael communicated with us about what he was working on and always ensured that we understood what was happening. Because the case was complex and at times contentious, he worked hard to advocate on our behalf while moving the case forward. Michael is a trusted advisor to us and while I do not want to have any more legal issues, I would not hesitate to seek him out if I needed any legal advice.

Dismissive
Lack of communication and attention to reasonable questions asked regarding the scope of the case. Seemed annoyed and bothered by providing answers or a clear plan as to how he may be of help to the issues ....................................
