What our clients say:

I have worked with Jim Kasdon for nearly 20 years, first as an agent for landlords and Coop and Condo Boards and then as a coop and condo Board member and as a landlord, also personally seeking and using his counsel and litigation services. I've seen a lot of lawyers over the years in the boardroom, at a negotiating table and in court. The best way to describe my view of him and what he brings in representing me is this: When my first child was being born I was panicking in the hospital. Then the doctor walked into the room and everything was suddenly safe and all ok. When Jim joins me in a courtroom or boardroom or at a negotiating table, I am relieved and secure knowing that he is prepared and that I will be excellently represented. He understands my needs and priorities, the dynamics with his client, the other side and the judge, and gets excellent results. Highest possible recommendation.

I bought a residential condo as an investment and inherited very difficult tenants. On the recommendation of a friend I hired James Kasdon to bring a case to remove the tenants. The tenants got a lawyer but Kasdon got it settled immediately and when they defaulted and got court stays for more time Kasdon got them denied, got me a money judgment for all the rent and then got the judgment paid. Throughout he explained the way the system works, my options, what to expect, charted a winning strategy with me and made it happen. Extremely pleased with him and his work.
