Greg is the closing attorney brokers and clients seek out to be in the best position for a successful deal.


Friend to the Real Estate Community

Greg is one of the only attorneys in New York City who has the credentials to run a New York State-licensed school, enabling brokers to stand high above the rest in skill and knowledge.

Even when he’s not on their deal, Greg is the closing attorney other attorneys and brokers turn to for advice.

Why Not Hire Just Any Attorney?

There’s a big difference between an attorney who focuses exclusively on closings, like Greg, and those who simply include closings among their other practice areas.

There are thousands of attorneys in NYC that can get through an average closing. But only a small group focus all their time, talent and attention on real estate closings. Greg is one of the deans of that elite group.

Your home is your most important investment. You want a full-time master of the process to handle your closing, not a part-timer.


Aren’t All Closing Attorneys Alike?

Well, they all have a law degree. But closing attorneys have important differences you should take into account. Some provide a higher or lower level of client service. Some possess a different level of experience and competence. Generally speaking, higher levels of client service and greater experience and competence are reflected in higher fees.

Greg believes your interests go much deeper than just closing a deal. He’s there to help you secure the right deal that truly meets your goals, and will advise you to walk away if he spots the red flags of a bad decision.
