“Jean was a godsend. She was recommended by a good friend, another real estate lawyer who moved out of state and could not represent us. My husband and I hired her to handle both the sale of our NY house and the purchase of a NJ house. She saw us through a year’s worth of delays and headaches caused by very difficult buyers. Despite it all, Jean was the consummate professional and she never complained and was never pushy.
At various points, she presented the pros and cons of our legal options, and helped us calmly make the best choices under horrible circumstances. With poise and grace, she managed tense and challenging situations with another attorney to resolve matters in our favor. And when called for, she exercised legal pressure on our behalf but managed to never close the door on future negotiations. At our NY closing, she even received praise from the attorney and buyers for how smoothly she handled everything from the very beginning.
We HIGHLY recommend Jean. She is a clear communicator and is very thorough; she made sure that all agents and lawyers involved with our NY sale and NJ purchase were aware of key issues and delivered on their promises. She was always mindful of our expectations, constraints, and deadlines. We are VERY satisfied with her representation, and are so grateful she helped us close on both our houses.” (READ MORE)

“Jean = The Best Ever. It’s hard to exaggerate just how wonderful Jean is. My husband and I recently purchased our first home, and quite frankly had little idea of what we were doing, or what to expect. New York real estate is a nightmare to navigate, especially when buying into a co-op (which we did). Even during the most stressful times, Jean was excellent, level-headed, and hugely helpful. She was incredibly patient with our inexperience, and went above and beyond the call of duty to get us to our closing. We simply could not have done this without her. It is with great pleasure that recommend her, and look so forward to working with her again in the future.” (READ MORE)

“Jean is extraordinary. It is inconceivable to me that there is any better choice than Jean. From the start, Jean was clear, concise, and proactive. Whenever I wanted to discuss something, she was highly responsive and patient. When I ran into difficulties with a slow-moving condo board, she didn’t miss a beat, stepped up and coached me while also coordinating with my real estate agent, and went way beyond what I had any right to expect. Though I’ve sold and bought properties before, I’m no expert. With Jean’s advice and coaching, though, I understood everything and had what I needed to make good decisions–on legal matters and beyond. As most high performers are, Jean is also backed by an excellent team. In my lifetime, I’ve had now four closings. I know the difference between adequate and excellent. Jean is excellent.” (READ MORE)

“Jean patiently listened to all of my questions and thoughtfully considered which business structure would be best for me. When it came time to navigate the required paperwork, she was beyond flawless. She even helped me with things that were probably below her expertise, just so that I could rest easy knowing that everything was done correctly. If I had to use 3 words to describe Jean I would say she is precise, considerate and intelligent. She represents exactly what I was looking for in a lawyer, and I’ve met enough to know that these qualities are incredibly rare.” (READ MORE)
