LEGAL FEES AND VALUE TO OUR CLIENTS
For most real estate transactions, the client may choose either hourly fees or flat fees.

We believe that we provide excellent value because our professionalism is among the highest, while our fees are “middle of the road.” We cater to those clients who appreciate this high level of legal representation, and understand that all New York real estate lawyers are not the same.

We know that many clients are stretching their financial resources when they purchase a home, and that they seek to obtain legal representation at the lowest possible cost. Although we respect that concern, we are unable to match the legal fees charged by high volume real estate law firms who make extensive use of paralegals at all phases of the transaction.

In our experience, many real estate transactions proceed relatively smoothly without major complications. However, since a significant portion of real estate transactions do encounter substantial legal, financial, or logistical problems, it is our philosophy to recognize that each transaction has the potential for developing problems that will require expert legal representation. Of course we cannot eliminate all potential problems. If your real estate purchase or sale does not proceed as smoothly as you would have hoped, we strongly believe that you will be glad that you selected our law firm.

FLEXIBLE AND CREATIVE APPROACH
Flexibility and creativity are basic elements of the Firm’s work ethic. Ideas and suggestions which might assist in achieving the client’s goals are freely offered. We foster creative solutions to client problems.
