Jaime Lathrop assisted my late parent's legal firm (Goldfarb and Associates) in keeping their apartment out of the hands of an unscrupulous Reverse Mortgage Company. Mr. Lathrop at least twice successfully defended our interests at court. I am very grateful to him. We have, thanks to him, successfully negotiated the sale of the apartment.
Jamie helped with more than one issue regarding my home. He was professional, direct no nonsense kind of guy. I would highly recommend you talk to him about any legal issue that you may have. He is very reasonable and will upfront about your case and options.
I fully trust Jimmy with all things legal and have had him as my lawyer for nearly a decade. He's been there for me through several real estate transactions and business ventures. He always gives sound advice, providing thoughtful rationale and clear explanations for his recommendations. I truly feel lucky to have him on my side.
