“Mr. Tannenbaum was prompt, professional and took his time answering all my questions.

My son recieved a speeding ticket and I was worried about the cost and long term effect on my insurance. I found Mr. Tannenbaum on Avvo and figured I’d give him a call to seek some advice. He immediately took my call and put me at ease. He answered all 1,000 questions I had and earned my trust. Although he was on vacation he met me in his office to retain his services and represented my case in court the next day. .. even on such short notice and 4th of July weekend!! He had the ticket knocked down to a non moving violation, called me immediately with the great news. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation. Patient, kind and on your side. We refer to him as our Favorite Lawyer!”


“Mr. Tanenbaum answered my question very clear & detailed, although all of the answers were great, his contained the most information short & clear.¬†Thank You Dear Mr. Tennenbaum”


“This was my first time ever hiring a lawyer and Matthew Tannenbaum walked me through everything he is very educated in the laws of landlord tenant. He fought for me and was able to create a great settlement that both parties were satisfied with, on my own it would not came out in my favor. I definitely would hire him again and will be hiring him to review any important documents I need to sign in the future! very satisfied of the outcome.
Great skills,critical thinking and great personality!”


“Wow. Mr. Tannenbaum just finished clearing away all my moving violations and ended up saving me *a lot* of money in insurance hikes I would have incurred had I tried to represent myself. Let’s just say that I’m not the safest driver on the road and had accumulated multiple tickets worth more points than I’m comfortable talking about. Well in less than a week he got the aggregate down to 2 points and a pittance in $. I can’t recommend Mr. Tannenbaum enough; he’s personable, intelligent, well connected, and *very* thorough. A+”


“Matthew was very helpful. Understanding that I am ignorant to my specific circumstance, Matthew walked me through the entire process. This level of care and concern made the process productive and enjoyable. I will use him again for further legal matters, and would recommend him to my family and associates.”


“As first time home buyers, we started off with an attorney that turned out to be a nightmare. Matt was then recommended to us by our Realtor and we couldn’t be more pleased. The only negative is that we didn’t find him from the very beginning, Home buying, especially being first time home buyers is no easy task but Matt was able to put us at ease and helped walk us through the process. Closing was a breeze and he’s even been available afterwards for all of our questions and concerns. If you’re looking for a great attorney, look no further!”

L. Thompson

“Working with a lawyer when buying a home can be confusing and scary its a big decision and you want the feeling of security when going though such a big move in your life. Matthew Tannenbaum was just that person we needed to guide my wife and I through the closing of my newly purchased home. Mr Tannenbaum made sure all details were taken care of and left no stone unturned. There were no surprises in the final meetings with the seller and myself. I was represented by a hands on professional lawyer and at the end of the day Mr. Tannenbaum made this a very easy transition for my wife and I. If you are in need of a great closing lawyer or for any other needs that fall under Mr. Tannenbaum’s belt I would highly recommend him to anyone.”


“Matt Tannenbaum helped us purchase our new home – and made the process so much easier and less stressful. He explained things to us and always took the time to answer questions. He was great to work with – highly recommend his services!”


“Matt handled our closing. He is very helpful and responsive. He answered every question and the closing was smooth. I highly recommend him.”


“Matt is terrific. Over the past thirty years, my husband and I have bought and sold numerous properties. This was our first transaction with Matt. His professionalism and attention to detail led to a very successful and amicable closing.”


“Matthew was a great attorney. He took care of my traffic tickets. He was trustworthy, responsive and knowledgeable. I would recommend Matthew to anyone.”


“Matt took care of the closing on our first new home. He is very knowledgeable on the matter. smooth transaction.”


“Matt helped make our first-time home buying experience a breeze. His estimate of closing fees was dead on so that there were no surprises at the table. He explained the process and answered all our questions thoroughly. Matt was quick to respond to any of our emails and phone calls. Our closing was a quick, smooth transaction with zero stress. We definitely recommend Matt to anyone who requires a real estate attorney.”


“very smooth transaction; great service, easy to talk to and always making time to explain thing in detail…”


“Mr. Tannenbaum handled both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our house. He eliminated a lot of the stress for us by keeping us informed of every detail throughout the process. Mr. Tannenbaum was always available, day or night and even weekends, to take our calls or respond to our emails. Selling and buying a home is a very emotional and stressful endeavor. Mr. Tannenbaum was the consummate professional and guided us through without a hitch!”


“My wife and I had heard for years how stressful and agonizing the closing experience would be. Not so with Mr. Tannenbaum. From the moment we met to go through the seller’s contract, he stayed on top of the transaction, explaining everything clearly and providing regular updates from his conversations with the sellers’ attorney (there was never a need to chase for information). Mr. Tannenbaum often prefers to communicate by phone, which is an under-appreciated value add. This allows you to ask questions up-front, without the need for back-and-forth before getting the information you need. He and his staff are very organized and we could not have asked for a smoother transaction on the day of our closing. On a few occasions, when contract language was not in agreement with our expectations, Mr. Tannenbaum went to bat for us and set things right with the sellers’ attorney. I would highly recommend Mr. Tannenbaum for any of your legal requirements. He made one of life’s largest transactions an enjoyable experience for us.”


“I had a case in Nassau County but do not live in the area. I was able to pay for Mr. Tannenbaum’s services long distance and he took care of everything for me in a very timely fashion. I didn’t have to appear in court and his fees are reasonable. It was my first time hiring an attorney so I was a little skeptical going in. I expected to be overcharged and unsatisfied. He proved me wrong and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a straightforward excellent attorney who will get the job done.”


“The sale was smooth and everything was perfect. Matt was excellent and gave great practical advice. Ironed out all the details and made sure we closed as quickly as possible. Would definitely use again. My sister used him several years ago and she was very pleased as well.”


“Multiple Owners in Multiple States.

The house we were selling was on Long Island, but the two owners lived in different cities hundreds of miles away from each other and from the property. Matt handled this geographical complication with ease. He did what was necessary to verify the title, and he succeeded in getting the closing to happen at a convenient date without the sellers having to attend. He really did a fine job.

The only aspect of this that was less than stellar was that he did not communicate by email as often as he said he would. That caused a bit of frustration along the way, but the ultimate result was that a complicated transaction done well and on time.

If we had to do it again, we would still hire Matt because of his skills, but we’d just pester him more often when communication lagged.”


“Matt was professional yet compassionate when handling my case. My mother appointed me Executrix of her estate and I was responsible for getting the house I grew up in ready for market. Matt was understanding and answered all my questions. He was thorough at closing, which just took place, and was pretty accurate on what the end results were. I would highly recommend Matt and plan on using him for additional legal services.”


“Matt handled a real estate closing for my property in Manhasset, NY.

After we entered into contract for a normal closing date, the buyer requested a close date in 10 days from date of contract – Matt was superior in every way and was able to assist me to provide all documentation so we could close at requested date. Brilliant to do a closing in 10 days – will use him always in the future. My highest recommendation.”


“Matt knows his stuff and is quick to adjust and adapt as the client’s needs change.”


“Matt represented us when we bought our home and he explained everything to us along the way (which was a lot, because I knew nothing about real estate or the laws surrounding it!). We haven’t sold our home yet, but we’ll use him for that as well. I’ll definitely recommend him to others.”


“Matthew Tannenbaum completed our primary home closing for us. His knowledge, consideration and the ease in communication made what might have been a stressful transaction simple. We would recommend his services without hesitation.”

Andrew and Barbara H.

“Handled my situation professionally, accurately and was extremely flexible when it came to understanding my situation.”


“We had a great experience with Matt. He was great with communication. He always made sure we understood everything. He was available for any questions we had and really guided us along the way. He definitely knew his stuff. We trusted him completely and he made it clear he was on our side and supported us throughout the process. We will be using him if we need a lawyer in the future.”


“After receiving some serious traffic violations, Matt was recommended by a friend. After our !st phone conversation, it was very clear that Matt knew exactly what he was talking about and i felt very comfortable going forward with him as my attorney. He kept me informed of all possible outcomes good and bad. We went to court several times and never was there for more than 30 min which was important as not to miss work. At the end … couldn’t be happier with the results !!! Would recommend Matt with all confidence!”


“I met Matt a few years back in another closing where he represented the bank. It became instantly apparent that he was the sharpest person in the room. I made a note that in my next real estate transaction I would have him handle it for us. Matt was tremendously helpful in both our sale and purchase of our homes. He gave us regular updates and always took the time to explain everything to us. We had some unexpected issues with the purchaser of our home. Matt was always there to calm our fears and further rectify the situation. He always explained the law to us and advised us of all our options. For the purchase of our home, Matt helped negotiate our terms so that we were well protected in the event our sale didn’t go through. Luckily this did not happen, but it was nice to know that our risk was minimal. We were extremely pleased and forever grateful for all of Matt’s help and legal expertise.”


“We used Matthew Tannenbaum when we were bought and sold our houses. He was very professional and let us know every step of the way what we needed to do.”


“I’m a busy Real Estate agent and home builder in Plainview. I work with Matt on a regular basis. I use him for my personal purchase and sale transactions. I also have recommended Matt to my clients and have had very positive feedback from everyone.”
