Mr. Klurfeld began his undergraduate studies at Michigan State University and received his Bachelors of Arts degree from Oakland University and his Juris Doctorate degree from Saint Thomas University School of Law, where he was a member of the Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honors Fraternity, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, Business Law Society and Sports & Entertainment Law Society.

During law school, he clerked for the Honorable Ronald Dresnick in the 11th Circuit Court in downtown Miami, where he learned the foundation of civil law as well as foreclosure law during the real estate crash in 2009-2010.  After his 2nd year of law school, he began interning at a general practice law firm, intricately learning all areas of the law.  He eventually was admitted to the Florida Bar and became an attorney at the firm.  Mr. Klurfeld later worked at a premier foreclosure defense firm for 2 years focusing on foreclosure defense, condominium association law, landlord/tenant and business law matters.

As a private attorney, Mr. Klurfeld can devote time to each client and the personal attention that larger firms cannot give, with close attention to detail.

2 friends make a deal 2 sell mobile-home 4 15K & now buyer wants a break on the remaining 7K owed because he is spending too muc
I've heard it said that any lawyer who hires himself to be an atty. has a fool for a client; apparently this works both ways for the client too. Lesson learned? Always hire somebody that does for a living the job you need done. Thank you Mr. Klurfeld, your answer 2 my Ques. was exactly what my gut was telling me, “Hire an attorney. Never let the buyer move in before payment in full.” Most of all don’t mix friendship and business. If exploiting a situation is in your nature, it seems, then that side will always take over. My friend wanted a good deal(and got it) yet he wants to remodel ASAP, at my expense. 2BR’s+2Bath, Gd Sized Rooms, Plenty Wnds,CtrlAir, Scrnd-inPorch &Coat of FreshPaint. He said as there was no “AS IS” in the contract, therefore since his ‘fixer-up jobs’ were adding up to $$$ he should be allow to deduct them from the total still owed while I wait 2 mnths 4 my next payment! Never saw that one coming but a 10 year friendshp ain’t enough to really know a guy, I guess. Why is it that we never think things like this happen to regular people? My desire was to help out a buddy and of course the cash deal was also attractive. I was shocked, felt taken advantage of, then angry; now I need a lawyer. I appreciate it, Jonathan that you are a professional and I would recommend to anyone to use your services. The fact that you speak your mind is just the frank assessment I needed to hear. More than likely, you’ve seen your share of bad decisions in real estate law and I seem to have blundered right into one of the top five. Thanks for your help for right now and in the future.

HE IS SO NICE
I messaged Jonathan for a few more questions that i had, he is so nice to answer them. If i need any attorney in the future, I'd definitely hire him.

Wow! An honest and not greedy lawyer.
Mr Klurfeld answered my questions about a realty contract in great details being very generous of his time and knowledge. It is refreshing not to get the usual answer: "get a lawyer". If you are in the Boca Raton area in Florida and have real estate transactions to do (he is also in the real estate business) I highly recommend you retain his services. I know I would!

Answers questions with great detail.
He provided answers my own lawyer did not provide me. I would probably use him if I haven't already put my lawyer on retainer.

Very good lawyer, can't say enough good things
I greatly appreciate Jonathan's help with my foreclosure situation. He got me a great modification with Ocwen at a much lower monthly payment that I had before; about 1/3rd off of what my old payment was.

Great Experience!
Mr. Klurfeld did an excellent job defending my foreclosure case for many years and ultimately saving my house getting my loan modified. I greatly appreciate his efforts and the very reasonable price he charged me throughout the case; never exceeding what I thought was more than fair to have to pay for the amount of time

Fantastic Job Done By This Firm
Mr. Klurfeld's office did a fantastic job on my foreclosure case. After being approved for a trial loan modification once, and not liking the offer, his office got me approved yet again somehow and at a much better rate and terms. I cannot thank his office enough for the work done and reasonable fees I was charged compared to other attorneys I've worked with in the past.

Helped save my house and $100k off my principal
Jonathan did excellent work with my house for 2.5 years. Finally we got a modification offer from Ocwen for $100k off of my principal and an affordable payment in a permanent modification. Will reccomend him to everyone that I know.
Posted by Judy A. | April 9, 2015
Modified my loan and saved my house
Mr. Klurfeld does excellent work and is very open with communication. I had a problem with Ocwen with a delay in getting my permanent modification and Mr. Klurfeld called Ocwen himself numerous times to get to the bottom of it. How many lawyers would take the time to call the bank themselves not only once but numerous times for you? He also personally responds to me every time I need something or have a question. GREAT experience with this law firm.

Excellent work done at this firm
This firm does excellent work. I was given a loan modification on my house that just went permanent and I cannot be happier that my house is saved. I am glad that I went with this office over others.

Solved foreclosure issues on 2 of my properties.
Mr Klurfeld did extraordinary work on 2 properties that I own. On my main residence, not only did he get me a loan modification, but when my job recently caused me to have to move to Miami, he got the bank to agree to waive any deficiency I owed them; even after offering me a loan modification. Always timely communication from the firm as to my options and everything that was occurring in my cases. I cannot say how much Mr. Klurfeld's firm has helped my family. Thank you!

Excellent Experience with this lawyer!
Excellent lawyer. We received a loan modification that saved our home at less than we were paying before with our taxes and insurance included. The bank also gave us an incentive of money off of our loan balance each of the first 5 years we stay current. Thank you!!!

The right attorney for you
The moment I met Mr klurfeld I knew I had picked the right attorney . He was very knowledgable and determined to help me . I felt confident that my case was in good hands and I was right . He provided a level of personal attention that I have never experienced with any other attorney . Within a few months my case was settled in my favor . That would have never happened without Mr Klurfelds help

Excellent attorney very knowledgeable and easy to talk to
I contacted mr klurfeld when I was facing fireclosure . From the minute I entered his office I felt at ease .He was very easy to talk to and I felt that while I was talking to him he listening to what I was saying . He was very knowledgeable and I felt I had picked the right attorney from the moment he started telling me how he would approach my case . I found him very reliable he called me back within and hour if he was unable to take my calls . His office staff was always very nice on the phone . He was able to get my mortgage reduced so I won't face foreclosure now . I would recommend him to everyone who need an attorney who gets results

Results!
Mr. Klurfeld defended my foreclosure, taking it over from another lawyer who did a terrible job and missed deadlines, etc. He was able to get me a permanent loan modification with Ocwen. I highly recommend his services.

Gets Results!
Great experience with this firm. I received a trial loan modification from my lender through them. When i was not sure whether to take the loan modification or do a short sale on my house, Mr. Klurfeld took personal time to go over a complete strategy for me. He had a realtor out at my house within a day or 2 to give me an estimate of what the house was worth and what I could sell it for. I was provided a full write-up of the comparables, the methods used, etc. Very informative. Ultimately I decided to take the modification, but this firm goes above and beyond. Highly Recommend!

Mr. Klurfeld Solved My Housing Problem!
Mr. Klurfeld defended my foreclosure and got my bank to waive anything I owed on the property beyond what they sold it for. I walked away from my debt and now am buying a new property in another county. People cannot believe this when I tell them! I highly recommend Mr. Klurfeld and will do so to everyone I know!
