This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I've dealt with the best lawyers in the country, and TJ is best in his field.
TJ fought hard and won to protect me, against the former owner of my condominium, specifically with negotiating with the seller lawyer about their failure to disclose that the condo building had a bad roof. The seller left me holding the bag on a huge roof assessment, and thought they could get away with it. TJ advised me how to navigate the information channels of my HOA, how to handle negotiations with the former owner's attorney, and he kept me informed of my legal options during the entire process. Great communicator. He made, what could have been a disaster, turn out to be smooth, seamless and, a successful outcome. He has phenomenal verbal negotiating skills, and tremendous knowledge of his field and case law. I would highly recommend TJ to anyone having an issue with the purchase of their property, or any other real estate issue! He got me the cash out of the seller, brilliantly, without us having to litigate. The opposing attorney, a Harvard law school grad, didn't want to chance with litigation because of vast knowledge and skill level TJ posesses. TJ made what would have been a horrible situation, a fun challenge. He does not beat around the bush. He is straight out. He does not waste words or time. I've worked with some of the best lawyers in the country, for many of my companies and situations, and TJ is best in his field.

Excellent HOA Attorney
Up front ,TJ informed what he could do to help with my problem with my HOA long time repair project to my unit. He was able to get a repair job finished with in a week. TJ has some great advice on all the documents I should have. HE was able to get me electronic copies. Several residents at my Condo do not like our HOA managers. So I have referred TJ to them incase they need help as well.
