“Dear Jim and Jennifer, We are so grateful to have you guys on our team!!  If this were in any other attorneys’ hands, the deal would have died.  You are the best!!”  Susan M. – Keller Williams realtor.

Our lawyer James Foerst is easily the best in the business. He also happens to be a Councilman in Westfield, too. We’ve worked with three real estate lawyers and no one is as thorough, patient, and funny as he is. Very sharp negotiating skills and no-bullshit attitude (except when he’s being funny). He and his associate Jen walked us through the closing documents quickly but without skipping any pertinent sections, and Jim walked us through the HUD statement like he is a financial analyst. The staff at Spector, Foerst & Associates are equally professional and efficient. Everyone was very easy to reach and communicate with.

From a local Realtor:

Thank you for contacting me for input on your services.  I can honestly say that I don’t have any criticism regarding the service that you’ve delivered to me and my clients.  My clients, and I, have had a positive experience in working with your office and following are what I believe give you and your staff an advantage:

Responsiveness: You respond quickly – be it via phone or email.  This is particularly important to new clients that I hand-off to you.  They love that they can get you on the phone within their first attempt (or at the very least, get a response shortly after contacting you)

Your level of confidence:  Many of my clients are first-time buyers and first-time sellers and they appreciate your level of confidence and your taking leadership on matters which may be foreign to them

Congruency of message: I particularly like that you echo some of the things I tell my clients – i.e. That they should do a tank sweep; in the case of buyers – only focus on a handful of critical, important items during the home inspection; and for sellers – sometimes it makes sense to give a repair credit instead of losing a buyer

Location, location, location: Another advantage is that you are a local attorney, located close to the homes involved in our transactions. It is such an inconvenience, for me and for the client, when we have to drive miles to a closing! When working with your office, it is a skip over.

In sum, I feel very fortunate to have you on my team and am very happy with your level of service and commitment to me and my clients.  You may contact me if you have any follow up questions.

Jim,

Thank you very much to you and your staff for making my closing an easy transition.

Michael and Jennifer did a great job, they were very thorough and prompt with everything.

Happy Holidays and hope you, your family and staff have a great New Year.

Client Review:

Two years ago my good friend got into a car accident by a driver who ran a stop sign. The best thing that she needed at that time was a referral to a great attorney. My girlfriend has told me repeatedly that Jim has given her excellent advice and most importantly, is looking out for her legal interests. While my friend continues to suffer from her injuries, she doesn?t have to worry about getting the best legal representation available. Thanks for being there, Jim!

Client Review:

Jim has become our family lawyer after we worked with him at least four times in the past over the past three years. He has helped us, and others we have referred to him with a variety of matters including, tax appeals, real estate closings and municipal court matters. Some of these situations could fairly be described as emergencies, which Jim handled without a problem. He has proven himself time and time again to be knowledgeable, ethical, professional, caring and discreet. The breadth of his skill set is truly impressive. He has never disappointed us. Jim is the first call I make (or tell others to make) whenever a legal issue presents itself.

Client Review:

My most recent work with Mr. Foerst involved real estate law. He was professional, easy to work with, and served as the “quarterback” of my real estate transactions (a new purchase and a refinance). I had no issues with either transaction thanks to Mr. Foerst and his team. He kept me informed and educated through the entire process.

In addition to my real estate transactions, I have found Mr. Foerst to be an outstanding resource for other legal matters. He has a broad range of expertise and is my first call for answers or direction when I have any legal question.

Client Review:

I would very highly recommend Jim Foerst to anyone needing an attorney. I had the pleasure of meeting him several months ago when I called for a consultation. That free half hour consultation turned into a two hour meeting. He is extremely knowledgeable. He was understanding and compassionate regarding my situation, and took the time to explain his advice to me. My immediate thought upon leaving his office was “I trust this man.” Mr. Foerst is a dedicated attorney with a passion for his work. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Jim is one of the most responsive and fair attorney’s I have dealt with. Being in the insurance business I interact with attorneys on estate, tax, real estate and several business issues. He makes a point to clearly understand a client?s needs and explains their options and exposure in an easy and understanding way. He is very knowledgeable in real estate law and makes the purchase of a home and the closing process easy and affordable.
