We hired Keith's firm for an extremely tough property case that looked hopeless. We'd worked with other attorneys, and they had us going in the wrong direction. We got information to Keith quickly, his costs were more than reasonable, and we wound up saving about $350,000 in the process. His ability to get results and come up with an honest, reasonable approach is truly amazing.

We hired Keith 4 years ago, he followed our case closely with his staff, and brought all options to our attention. We'd had 3 previous attorneys work our case and only wanted our money; but Keith took a low retainer and allowed us to make payments. After not paying our mortgage for 5 years we thought we were sunk. Keith's experience and publishing starting in 2006 enlightened us such that we had multiple opportunities to save our house, have peace in our lives, and then recover! We even avoided any financial deficiency claim!! He's simply brilliant in property law and knows how to pick apart the documents and records to find what banks or loan servicers do wrong. We now have a pending counter-suit to recover on credit reporting damages.
It was very scary with what the bank was doing to us; but after seeing Keith's firm was behind us to the end, and we wouldn't be thrown out--we started working loan modification options. He gave us the knowledge & experience we needed to get through this. After a what we thought was the "end," he came back with legal work to get the court to take another look.
It's a complex process, but Keith took the time to explain it to me and my husband, and we wound up succeeding when we were sure we'd fail. If you don't use this attorney, you're not getting the best.

Mr. Halpern handled our commercial contract dispute brilliantly. He was responsive, and demonstrated a tireless pursuit of justice in our leasing issues. He cared deeply for our business needs and was reasonable with fees. We also hired him to perform all of our estate planning and asset preservation. He is truly an amazing, caring person.

Attorney Halpern is a well known and well respected attorney in the legal community. I highly recommend him as an attorney, expert witness, and trial litigator. He is a thorough, honest, and diligent advocate for his clients.
