BARRY'S THE BEST
Barry, thank-you for making a subject I hate, estate planning, somewhat more pleasant. Our family structure and beneficiary allocation are on the complicated side but you handled everything beautifully and timely. You've got my vote and recommendation for estate planning

Barry is amazing!
My wife and I recently used Barry to create our wills and provide other estate planning advice. Barry had the knowledge and experience to walk us through any scenario we could imagine, and also some that we would have never thought of. He was very easy to work with and went out of his way to work around our schedules. The process was surprisingly quick and easy. We highly recommend Barry!

Highly Recommend Haimo Law
We were completely satisfied with the Wills, Trust, and legal documents prepared for us by Haimo Law. They helped us step by step in preparing the documents, with attention to detail. These documents were organized efficiently and they addressed our specific needs. We are appreciative of the time and effort they put into this project and how it was completed in a timely manner.

Barry and his team have been so helpful to my partners and I. They have helped us on numerous occasions, whether it be putting together our partnership agreements, to setting up loan packages, and at least 100 other things that we just call to ask him his advice on. There is no other attorney I would suggest for a small business. Thank you so much, Barry to you and your team for all you have done for us.

The best and most knowledgeable attorney around!
Barry was very knowledgeable and attentive in all matters when it came to help planning my trust and estate. He treats you with the most respect and allows you to have a lot of feedback through the process. He is also very friendly and easy to talk to which is unique for someone with so much knowledge on his craft.

Master of Law
Barry is by far the most knowledgeable lawyer I've talked to, believe me when I say I shop around and I did quite a bit before I decided Barry was my guy for the job. He actually listened to what I had to say and gave me a response related to my case, not a generic answer like he was reading a script. Barry made me believe he actually cared about the outcome of my case and wasn't just doing a job like I had dealt with so many other times during consultations. Most lawyers have this air superiority and talk down to you as well as acting like you are wasting their time and they are so much more important, and Barry actually talks to you like your family, if you're tired of wasting your time and being jerked around by pretentious ego maniacs go see my main man Barry! 5 stars!

Professional and knowledgeable
I could not be happier that I found Barry Haimo to assist me with our estate planning needs. It was a subject my husband and I had been putting off for some time, but we definitely needed to get it in place. He clearly has extensive experience in this field and was able to thoroughly answer all our questions, with terms and language we could understand. I felt very comfortable relying on his expertise. There is no question that we would use him again in the future, and we recommend him wholeheartedly!

Best professional lawer to date
Barry took the time to walk us step by step threw the process of answering all our questions and concerns when we had to put together a WILL for my gf. She is in the US Navy and we needed a will for my gf and her doughter. Barry made us feel comfortable and at ease this can be hard to know what you might or might not need or want and you might know what questions to ask. He made that very easy all the wile being very professional. I would highly recommend him to any of my famley or friends.

Professional, efficient, excellent attorney!
I hired Barry about 4 years ago and he has worked on several projects. He created 2 of my companies, he was my legal defense in a landlord/tenant litigation, he did my trust and health surrogate and he is currently my legal adviser in real estate planning. I am always on the road and I found little time to print out documents and fax them. Barry did all my legal stuff via esign documents and via electronic way. He is probably the most electronically advanced attorney I dealt so far.

Professional, Responsive and Smart
Barry, is a great lawyer. He is fast, knowledgable and gets the job done. He is not one of those attorneys that wastes time or pads his billable hours. He gets right to the issue and solves it. I really enjoyed working with him and will continue to use Barry.

Barry Haimo gives you immediate and excellent attention for all legal needs!
I recently had the opportunity to work with Barry Haimo. I needed assistance with a contract negotiation with a new employer. Barry met with me and went over my expectations and goals. He then delivered a beautifully written contract ensuring my needs were met. His service went above and beyond with the level of articulation and end result. I would strongly recommend Barry Haimo for all of your legal needs. He is the best. Thank you Barry for all that you do!

Last Will & Testament
Barry was easy to reach and see right away. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and he also understands the human side of things. Barry Haimo took care of my needs in a highly professional and affordable way. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry to any size client with either very simple or very complex needs.

Barry is pro. He follows up. Can handle difficult situations.
I live in New York and my dad lives in South Florida. My father is not computer-literate, so he asked me to find a good attorney for his Estate Planning near where he lives. I found Barry Haimo on Avvo and he was the only attorney to follow up with me. I recommended my dad hire him. Unfortunately, dad hired another "attorney" from his retirement condo village on the cheap. Like many "retired" attorneys, who tend to work well after their career should have ended, this woman (lets call her the "old lady,") made a mess of it. Her forms were years out of date. Some made no sense at all. The old lady charged him a pittance, but did an awful job, producing documents that were legally insufficient and probably malpractice. After the banks here in NY refused to form a trust account based on her flawed work, I convinced my Dad to hire Barry. In spite of the difficult situation with the previous lawyer, Mr Haimo met my dad at his condo, advised him clearly, and fixed everything with revised, up-to-date documents that my bank was happy to accept. His work is demonstrably far superior to the work done by the old lady that preceded him. He presented my Dad with newer, better options that better reflected the needs of his children and grand children. Barry stepped into a difficult situation and made it right.

Haimo Law Review
Knowing Barry Haimo for over a decade, I know his true passion in delivering the utmost professional and comprehensive care in planning, personally tailored services to meet the needs and wants of each and every client. Haimo Law’s commitment and dedication is second to none. It is critical and it is important to him. To Barry Haimo, it is not enough to be knowledgeable and up to date on all topics of estate planning and asset protection. He goes the extra mile to ensure that his clients are educated as well. Taking the time to explain complex topics to clients shows teamwork and attentiveness as plans are put together. It is service like this that provides peace of mind knowing that you and your family are well prepared in during life’s most challenging times. In an industry often cold to the bottom line, Haimo Law rises above through this personalized care. Haimo Law is also a strategic thought leader in the area of technological applications. This is critical in this age of information and security to be mindful of the dangers that exist in the world and the protection against them. I offer my strongest recommendation to my attorney and friend, Barry Haimo. Jeff Novelis Inc. Senior Manager - Global Tax Planning & Policy
