I paid Barton Levine for a will and last testament, and have no received it. I began the process in September 2020, and after some correspondence with him, I contacted his office in early December to check on the status of the will. Levine told me he had sent me the will in mid-November. I asked for the tracking number. He said he would have to look for it and get back to me, which he did not. I asked him to send me another will. He refused, saying he was in Florida and the matter would have to wait until he returned to his NYS offices in early January. I then phoned him, and he told me he was very ill and could not send out the will. Two weeks later, he emailed me, giving me a date upon which I should receive the will, and to contact him if I did not receive it. I did not receive the will on that date. When I emailed him, my emails (three of them) were blocked. When I phoned his office to ask for the tracking number of the envelope containing my will, a secretary told me she did not have that information. I paid for a will in full last autumn, and I'm still waiting for it.

I searched for awhile before I found Mr. Bart Levine to represent me in a Surrogate Court matter. From the very beginning when I heard his voice and the many questions he asked me I knew he was special. Mr. Levine has a down to earth personality and is a no nonsense Attorney. Be ready to immediately start getting to him the documents he requires from you. You want your Case to move as smooth and as quickly as possible. Mr. Levine examines records for legitimacy and decides on the very best way to present your issue to the Court. He is dependable and always returns a phone call in a timely manner, another thing he will explain to you what you don’t understand. I was under so much stress before I found Mr. Levine and now I feel encouraged knowing that he is representing me in a most just positive light. I am truly grateful that he’s my Attorney

I found Bart through a NAMI referral. I needed a reasonably-priced lawyer who was well versed in the area of special needs trust for my disabled sister. Not only was Bart knowledgeable in this highly specialized area, he also demonstrated compassion toward my sister's needs. He understood what we needed, guided us through the legal maze to set up her trust, and counseled me as the trustee on how to manage her trust. I continue to use Bart on an as-needed basis because he's someone my sister and I can trust. Plus his fees are so reasonable compared with other attorney's we've consulted with.

Hi there I would like to say that I am so grateful to have had the support from you and your team. We did not know where to start especially being in a different country from Dad thank you for your hard work care and consideration and the time you have all given us we could not have done without you. Thank you so much

Mr. Bart handle my case that was really complicated and took his time understanding it. He is very easy to work with and guides you though the ruff time you might be having. I went to several lawyers before meeting Bart and all told me they couldn't help me. thank the lord i found him!!

As a fellow attorney, I know what to look for in quality legal services. My family hired Regina for a complicated guardianship proceeding that also involved trust and estate planning. Regina promptly responded to any inquiries throughout the entire process and clearly communicated with us regarding legal strategy and next steps. Additionally, Regina successfully settled our case and properly drafted all relevant agreements. She demonstrated a depth of knowledge and understanding for her area of practice and passion for her work. I recommend her and would use her services again if ever needed.

Regina did a great job educating us on the estate planning process. She answered all of our questions (and more) and her documents were flawless. Her team assisted us in signing everything remotely and everything was completed without any issues. It really was an efficient and positive experience. I highly recommend Regina and her firm for your estate planning needs.

Outstanding attorney. During Covid she achieved what other lawyers said was impossible. Had my husband made estate administrator - great communication, efficiency and compassion! We will be using Regina to plan our own estate. Top recommendation!

Regina Kiperman at RK Law, PC did an excellent job helping me with the Medicaid planning and nursing conversion for a loved one. She and her team were patient and thorough while helping me put together the essential documents to ensure the best care possible. I would work with RK Law again for doing a great job, and that is why I am highly recommending them.

My brother did not leave a will when he passed away. he was a hoarder and had not filed any tax returns for several years. Some people i consulted said that It might cost more than the value of the estate to get this straightened out. A friend recommend Ms Kiperman and I was extremely satisfied with her performance. I live near Philadelphia and my brother lived in NYC. She guided me through becoming the personal representative for the estate and submitted any forms i needed in NYC. I was able to use as much of her help as I wanted and eventually settled his tax problems on my own without having to hire a high priced consultant. I was extremely happy with the service I received, it was professional, knowledgeable and responsive for a very reasonable fee. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help with any estate problems

Working with Amy was a wonderful experience. She drafted a will for my mother and father last year, and the process could not have been better. No one looks forward to writing their will, but Amy was very patient when explaining how everything would work and answered all of our questions. She made everything extremely easy. I highly recommend hiring her as your attorney.

I was in a nasty legal battle with my siblings after my father passed away five years ago. It finally came to a resolution after I worked with Amy to settle my family’s dispute over my father’s estate. Thanks to Amy, I can move on with my life. Her rates are more than fair considering the peace of mind she’s given me. I’ll always be grateful to her!

Amy was a dream to work with. She and Marshall did all the legal work when I had to sell my Manhattan apartment of 30 years. They were there every step of the way, through the entire sale process. They were so hands on.

Met with attorney Amy Posner regarding eldercare planning for my mother. She is very knowledgeable, patient and answered all my questions. I highly recommend her services. Her fees were very reasonable.

I called Amy when my elderly mother’s dementia became so severe that I could no longer care for her in my house. I did not want to have her move to a nursing home, but Amy made the process so much easier. She explained why I needed power of attorney and helped us choose a nursing home.

Littman Krooks has an excellent reputation, yet my high expectations were exceeded when I became Marion Walsh's (of LK's) client. My son, "Rhys" [not his real name], was a student in a (solid) Special Education school, from which he was due to graduate in three years, when I met Marion. My research had led me to conclude that a particular Special Ed high school would be the condign one for Rhys, and I wanted to do all I could to make sure that's where he ended up. Although this high school is on the NYS "Approved List" -- meaning it is private, but Special Ed students can be placed there -- it is highly desirable and admissions are competitive; I wanted an attorney to shepherd us through the Admissions process. I contacted LK and met with someone at the firm in NYC. That attorney arranged with me to meet Marion Walsh at her office in LK's White Plains office because Marion is especially familiar with the school I wanted for my son, in addition to being experienced with every aspect of the annual IEP process, which is crucial when it comes to next-school placement. I met with Marion Walsh, who outlined what we would need to do over the next two years to give Rhys the best shot at the school I wanted for him, as well as to ensure that he be given appealing options besides that school. From that point on, Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, were involved in Rhy's IEP meetings, making sure that these evaluations and final reports, which prospective schools would consider carefully, reflected the best view possible of Rhys's progress. Marion deftly worked as an intermediary among me, Rhys's school, and the Committee on Special Education. She pushed for having Rhys's classification changed from "Emotionally Disturbed" to "Other", and made sure his IEP cited the strong evidence that justified that change. THAT was a key reason that Rhys was accepted at the school I had hoped he would attend...where he now is a student and is thriving! During the two years I worked with Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, they were consistently responsive -- routine emails or calls from me would get at least a quick acknowledgment within a few hours; in urgent situations, within 30 minutes -- thorough, sympathetic, and highly professional. Because we had several important meetings with the school and CSE during Covid, and those had to be Zoom calls, the meetings were particularly challenging to control - yet Marion managed to guide these meetings assertively, making essential points and being a champion for my son. I highly recommend Marion Walsh and I intend to work with her again when I next have a decision to make about Rhys's education or training options, or should any problem arise. She's a superior attorney with a first-rate team.

Very detailed conversation! Highly recommend! Gives great advice! Help with your issue!

I hired Littman and Krooks handle both my impartial hearings against the DOE and I have to say that I was impressed. Arshi Pal and Nicole Garcia were amazing. They never lost their patience with me and walked me through every single step. They fought hard and were instrumental to getting my son all the services he is entitled to. I will forever be grateful to Arshi, Nicole and Littman Krooks.

I was referred to Bernie Krooks for a very important matter that was extremely complex and involved sensitive personal issues. Bernie and his team resolved the matter in a timely and efficient manner. We are extremely satisfied with the results. The entire Littman Krooks team was always very responsive to our needs and addressed them in a professional and compassionate way. It is our pleasure to recommend Littman Krooks without reservation.

I saved a small fortune by obtaining the services of Littman Krooks. They walked me through the maize of health care options for my mother. while giving me the tools to protect her assets through the creation of a trust. Their staff is knowledgeable and available for consultations so that elder care management was greatly simplified. thank you

    Littman Krooks has an excellent reputation, yet my high expectations were exceeded when I became Marion Walsh's (of LK's) client. My son, "Rhys" [not his real name], was a student in a (solid) Special Education school, from which he was due to graduate in three years, when I met Marion. My research had led me to conclude that a particular Special Ed high school would be the condign one for Rhys, and I wanted to do all I could to make sure that's where he ended up. Although this high school is on the NYS "Approved List" -- meaning it is private, but Special Ed students can be placed there -- it is highly desirable and admissions are competitive; I wanted an attorney to shepherd us through the Admissions process. I contacted LK and met with someone at the firm in NYC. That attorney arranged with me to meet Marion Walsh at her office in LK's White Plains office because Marion is especially familiar with the school I wanted for my son, in addition to being experienced with every aspect of the annual IEP process, which is crucial when it comes to next-school placement. I met with Marion Walsh, who outlined what we would need to do over the next two years to give Rhys the best shot at the school I wanted for him, as well as to ensure that he be given appealing options besides that school. From that point on, Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, were involved in Rhy's IEP meetings, making sure that these evaluations and final reports, which prospective schools would consider carefully, reflected the best view possible of Rhys's progress. Marion deftly worked as an intermediary among me, Rhys's school, and the Committee on Special Education. She pushed for having Rhys's classification changed from "Emotionally Disturbed" to "Other", and made sure his IEP cited the strong evidence that justified that change. THAT was a key reason that Rhys was accepted at the school I had hoped he would attend...where he now is a student and is thriving! During the two years I worked with Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, they were consistently responsive -- routine emails or calls from me would get at least a quick acknowledgment within a few hours; in urgent situations, within 30 minutes -- thorough, sympathetic, and highly professional. Because we had several important meetings with the school and CSE during Covid, and those had to be Zoom calls, the meetings were particularly challenging to control - yet Marion managed to guide these meetings assertively, making essential points and being a champion for my son.

I would highly recommend this law firm. John Graffeo was amazing when he assisted me with my case a few years ago. He went far and beyond the call of duty and I started thinking of him as a good friend, not only as an attorney. Incredible law firm.

What an amazing experience!!!! Don Novick & Ashley Pizzuti. I would definitely recommend them for your estate needs. They are professional, promt, knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. They made us feel as though we were their only client. Words cannot explain my satisfaction with Don & Ashley.

Not just good. Not just competent. Not just honest. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! Donald Novick and his wonderful associates at his firm are truly magnificent experts at probate law. They know the probate world inside out and do a great job (especially in the all important deposition phase to get at the truth). If you are dealing with unscrupulous adversaries who are not living up to their duties - - you better get yourself proper representation or, you will regret it. I am not an attorney. I was not asked to write this for them. I am simply a person who has been fighting to defend my family and their rights and I am deeply grateful for their guidance and management of my family's affairs. Donald Novick and his team, (Michael Sullivan, Albert Messina, Kelly Garone and others) somehow are a special group. They actually do what they say they will. They "get it" and care. I've been around the block a few times in New York City. I've dealt with the biggest and the best of 'em, believe me. I'd say that the Novick Law Firm is far more ethical and simply more competent than most of the professionals I have dealt with in the New York area. Don't believe me? See for yourself. You call them and listen to what your instincts tell you. Trust your instincts! - Jonathan Mendelson

I reached out to over 10 different attorneys and law firms. Not one, except for Novice and Associates really listened or even understood our situation. They were the only ones who had presented us with a strategy to see if we even had a case. We did. Alice Choi was always available to cover any questions we had. She was awesome. If not for Novick and Associates, we would have lost our entire inheritance to our unethical, bad choices, 54 year old, never left home, sibling. Thank you Alice, Thank you Don Novick

Don Novick is a knowledgeable and efficient estate litigation attorney. Amazed at how he is able to juggle a number of cases and remember minute detail for our fact laden case. Highly recommend this firm.
