Ken, I would like to thank you and your staff for being the best. You make everything you do go smoothly, no stress and you do exceptional work. I have enjoyed working with you through the years, and will continue to bring you my business. Always a pleasure!
John Merlino and his team are incredible. John has represented me and my family many times and has always made me feel at ease, comfortable, and confident. John is very calm and pleasant but don’t let that fool you. John is so knowledgeable and such a true expert in his field that you sometimes don’t realize his exceptional skill until the closing. The legal issues with buying and selling a home are complicated. Well before closing, John brought things to my attention that I would never have known about or even thought were concerning. You realize the importance of choosing the right attorney when such issues come up, and there are always issues. With John representing me, I felt confident that my interests were protected throughout the entire experience.
Nothing gets past John in the legal process before the closing so that when you sit down at the closing table there are no surprises, no last minute stressful decisions, no make or break added expenses -none of that. John is a professional and has so much experience that my closing was relaxing, pleasant and smooth; Very predictable which is much appreciated especially when your life’s savings are involved. That can only happen if your attorney is engaged in your transaction from start to finish, has the ability to communicate professionally with everyone involved in your transaction, has an efficient and dedicated staff, and has the experience and knowledge to detect issues before they become expensive, out of control deal breakers. That attorney is John Merlino. I think John Merlino is the best attorney on Staten Island, maybe anywhere, and he’s definitely my attorney for life. Thank you John Merlino!
I have dealt with numerous attorneys in my career with regard to settling estate matters. John R. Merlino Jr. and Ken Gonzalez are the best. They are thorough, expedient and professional in all their work. Too often an attorney’s service doesn’t live up to the sales pitch in the beginning. Large or small, John and Ken follow through and get the job done. I would recommend anyone in need of Estate or Probate work to contact Merlino and Gonzalez.
Merlino & Gonzalez are both extremely thorough and attentive to their client’s needs. Always making themselves available and return calls directly throughout the process. These comments are the positive feedback I hear back from my clients and what I have experienced myself. Great group to deal with.
Hi Ken – I know we still have some items to cover down the road, but I did want to take the opportunity to thank you for all you help, guidance and support. This sale had some twists and turns and your patience and advice were very much appreciated. Your responsiveness to questions and concerns as well as you going out of your way to see that today’s closing was as seamless as possible says a great deal about you as a lawyer and a person.
Buying real estate is stressful and at times overwhelming. The firm of Merlino & Gonzalez were exceptional. Their process is meticulous and reassuring. They shared my same concerns and treated me like family. The staff is always ready and available to answer any questions or concerns. All of their preparation made the day of closing seamless. I highly recommend their offices & look forward to working with them in the future again!!!
John is awesome to work with. He gets the job done and he communicates with you. Expect only the best. That’s John!
John and his team precisely and efficiently closed on the house that we sold, and closed on the house that we purchased. John and his team always had our backs, and kept a cool and professional tone throughout the whole process. This is the second home that John and his team have helped us to purchase. We will use him for every house we buy in the future!
We would recommend the law firm of Merlino and Gonzalez to anyone purchasing or selling a home. They made the sale of our house and purchase of a new home an easy process. We wouldn’t have been able to complete the process without all of their help. Any questions or problems that arose were handled promptly and professionally. The entire staff made us feel welcome and were very accommodating whenever we visited the office. We have used the firm in the past and would not hesitate to use them again!
I was so lost when my husband died, but Ken was recommended to me by my friend Steve. It was a great and rewarding experience. Michele was so helpful and pleasant. Ken had such a sweet personality and made me feel good about the future. I couldn’t ask for more. He explained everything so clearly and was so efficient. He has been a great help on a few other things and I have recommended him to many people. As long as I am around I will always consider Ken and his staff my only law firm. As a side note: usually lawyers are not that pleasant and personalities, not that great but Ken is the nicest, most helpful of any lawyers.
