Amazing Closing

Michael Ackerman was the perfect lawyer to close on our second home. He was so patient, caring and really helped us understand this process.  He was always available to answer questions and we trusted him throughout the entire procedure!!!!

There’re not enough accolades for Michael Ackerman! He’s professional, thorough and a true gentleman! He prepared our 3 closings so perfectly and concluded them with aplomb (that means great attention to detail!).  We trusted Michael totally and will use him again and again if we do any other element in his realm of practice!

Excellent Communication

My wife and I needed an attorney to assist with selling our home. After a brief consultation with Michael, it was clear he knew the process thoroughly and had a team onboard to handle everything. From the moment we agreed to utilize his firms services we were never disappointed. Every step of the sale went smooth and above all, the best feature was the excellent communication so we knew what to expect the entire time. We were able to reach Michael or a member of his team whenever we needed to. Every email or message sent was answered promptly. My wife and I could not be happier with the services provided and would highly recommend Michael and his team at Ackerman Law.

Excellent Attorney & Staff

I highly recommend Michael Ackerman, Esq, and his outstanding team at Ackerman Law. When my husband and I bought our first home in Northport, NY we chose Michael Ackerman to represent us as buyers in the transaction.

Hire them!

"These guys are awesome. I started with a garden variety closing, which turned somewhat complicated as the seller tried to screw us. Mike and his team were awesome. 1) They never hit us with any extra fees. 2) Mike was tough as nails in playing hardball with the seller. I personally loved this aspect of it! Isn't this what you want from a lawyer? 3) They looked out for my best interests, and were organized and effective. 4) in dealing with other firms in the past, I always hated that when you called they had to look at your file, didn't have a working knowledge of your case, etc. This NEVER happened with Mike and Justin. I never had to rehash everything--they knew who we were, and what was going on. I loved this--this is totally a piece of mind that's value in incalculable. 5) For the price he charges, this was the best value I have seen in dealing with law firms. I highly recommend Mike and his team wholeheartedly. You can even message me if you want more details. Hire them!"

- Jim

Absolutely the best

"The team of Mike, Justin and Devon are professional and attentive in every aspect . We are fortunate to have them close on the purchase of our sons house, the sale of our home and now the purchase of our new home. We also recently highly recommended them to a family member. It’s a relief and a pleasure to have someone that you can always call and rely on to give you the best advise at a moments notice. Their experience and expertise were essential to handling some difficult issues that were raised. They walked us through each and every step and eased all of our fears and uncertainties."

- Chip

Thank you, Ackerman Law!

"Michael and his team were excellent throughout the home buying experience. As new homeowners, Michael walked us through the entire process, and took the time to meet with us to explain each aspect of the contract and closing documentation. Devon was excellent in providing updates and passing along the necessary paperwork that was required of us. My wife and I highly recommend Ackerman Law!"

"Michael's team is fantastic. They assisted me when I purchased my new home and the experience was flawless, so I worked with them to sell my co op.

Working with the Ackerman team, I could rest easy, knowing things were being handled professionally and timely. They are the best!"

Great Real Estate Attorney

"I am an associate broker affiliated with Douglas Elliman. Michael and his entire team are great to work with-Justin makes people at ease, Whitney is very patient and Devon is the best paralegal I have worked with in my 3 decades of selling real estate. They always get back to me. My husband and I have used Michael Ackerman twice, referred our daughter, our son and almost every client to him and everyone seems very satisfied with Michael."

Again....Easy and Flawless!! Simply the Best!!!"

- Larry

First Time Homebuyer A+ Experience

Used Mike & his team for the purchase of my home in Melville. My Seller was a nightmare and there was a tenant (which involved negotiating the lease, as we wanted her out) It Wasn’t an easy deal but Mike always found a way to get it done, even when it seemed impossible! I was so impressed by his responsiveness and the fact either himself or his paralegal answered my questions after hours. I was a nervous first time homebuyer and after one conversation with Mike I knew I would be in good hands and protected. Thanks Mike and team for helping me purchase my dream home , could not have done it without you !

- Leonardo

Highly Recommended - In A Class Of Their Own

As the Operations Manager/Transaction Coordinator for a top producing real estate team, I interact with numerous attorneys daily and can say without hesitation that Michael and his team are in an absolute class of their own. They are consistently organized and prepared, incredibly professional and have the best communication of any firm we work with. I am never left wondering where things stand on any of our deals, as I am updated on every last detail constantly and consistently. Michael has an uncanny ability to remain cool, calm and collected in even the most heated of negotiations/situations and keeps everyone laser focused on the end goal of a successful and seamless closing. He is patient and incredibly personable with all of our clients, and we always receive rave reviews when we recommend his team at Ackerman Law. From numerous personal experiences, I can definitively say that deals tend to go a lot smoother and quicker when they are representing our clients. I cannot say enough about Michael and his team - we are lucky (and grateful) to have them in our corner.

- Erica

Satified client....

I recently enlisted Mike and his team to represent me for my home purchase. Throughout the process and contract negotiations, his team handling my case were informative , responsive and receptive to my requests. But the best part is they were courteous and made the entire experience personable. When you work with an attorney, even though you are paying for the service, you want to feel like they're your advocate and I felt that Mike and team (Justin & Devon) definitely were in mine.

- Nikita W.

Great Attorney and Staff

I have used and referred Michael Ackerman on numerous occasions. He is honest and speaks to you in terms that you can understand. He and his team get back to you quickly. In fact, I have sent him numerous emails on a fri night, or over the weekend and he ALWAYS responded promptly. I highly recommend him.

- Anne

Could Not be in Better Hands

We hired Michael based on a friends high recommendation and are glad we did. We were planing on being away for an extended period and signed a POA for Michael to represent us for the entire transaction. He handled the entire transaction from initial contract to closing, checking with us each step o the way. Not only was Michael the epitome of "The Professional Attorney" but his entire staff far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Michael and his firm.

- Bill & Toni

Glad his firm is on my side...

I have been through three closings in the past few years, the last two of them with Mike representing me. Mike, his partner, and his staff are all helpful...I am very glad I found Mike Ackerman.

Michael was unbelievable kind, patience and was available at any time I had a question.
