Purchasing or selling a home is a significant, and increasingly complicated, process. Realtors and lenders can be helpful, but only an experienced real estate attorney can give you reliable legal advice. To successfully navigate a real estate transaction you need to understand issues such as escrow, mortgage finance and home inspection contingencies, title insurance and disclosure statements, “short sales”, “bank sales”, and a myriad of other legal issues. Furthermore, you need an experienced, aggressive attorney to coordinate your transaction with the real estate agents, lenders and opposing counsel to get you to the closing table in a timely fashion. With over 40 years of experience in the real estate field, we can advise and assist you through the entire process.


Do you want to be the one who decides how your estate is distributed or do you want that decision left up to the State? Are you OK with your heirs paying unnecessary expenses, maybe even inheritance taxes, or do you want to take steps to avoid this? Properly drawn Wills and/or Trusts will put you in control. Additionally, we can prepare Living Wills and Health Care Power of Attorneys to insure that you are cared for in a crisis.

Jerry was wonderful throughout the entire process and a complete professional in handling my case. Great communication and highly responsive to all calls and emails. Jerry kept me informed of every aspect of my case throughout every step of the process. I commend his persistence, patience, determination and support. Thanks to Jerry, my divorce went very smoothly and I was very pleased with the outcome. I truly couldn't have asked for a better attorney and would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Jerry Lazar made a very difficult process easy and worry free. I always felt confident about everything he executed on my behalf.

Honest and straightforward

I decided to retain Jerry as my attorney after our consultation meeting. He was straightforward and genuine. He helped me navigate the divorce process. He was very responsive to my emails & calls with questions. He was also accommodating of my schedule for meetings and the court date.

Jerry also said that my husband and I could come in together and discuss our parenting schedule and marriage allocation agreement. After the meeting my husband trusted and respected Jerry and decided not to get his own attorney. Jerry worked with us and facilitated our compromise. We were not interested in dragging out the divorce or going to mediation. Jerry was key in making this happen. We were divorced in a few months and did it rather economically.

He did such a good job with our case that I will be working with him to develop a will and for real estate when we sell the house.

I highly recommend Jerry Lazar. He is a straightforward, knowledgeable, and dependable person to have on your side.
