“There is a joke that goes something like this: A guy asks his lawyer "So what’s the cost for a simple closing?" And the lawyer responds, "I don't know, I've never seen one." Well, I have done three closings with Robert Kouffman over the past 10 years and they sure seemed simple to me. Robert is professional, thorough, and communicative. He anticipates problems and solves them before they become issues. Plus he is a really great guy.”
I have a variety of real estate investments in New York State and California. As a trustee for a family residence trust, I was attempting to prepare for sale an East Hampton home with significant non-compliance and town regulatory issues. I was particularly concerned that I retain a knowledgeable, local counsel who could adroitly guide the trust through the bureaucratic town process. After searching for a Hampton's-based attorney and after positive recommendations from satisfied clients, I engaged Robert Kouffman. He provided that special blend of local knowledge, key relationships, expert advice, along with pleasant and timely communication. Through Bob's expeditious follow-through the required town approvals were obtained and the sale of the property was completed in a timely manner. I heartily recommend Robert Kouffman.
Our general contracting firm has been working with Bob Kouffman for the past 7 years, and over those 7 years we have received nothing but exceptional service from Bob’s firm. Bob is a hardworking and knowledgeable professional who has consistently been generous with his time and his legal expertise. Bob has artfully guided us through several critical contract negotiations, and we are always left with a sense of confidence and ease after Bob puts his stamp of approval on a contract. We wholeheartedly recommend Bob and his legal services.
Bob Kouffman represented me on two matters and did an excellent job on both. The first involved a case brought against me for violation of a town ordinance relating to the degree of tree clearing on my property. Though done by the previous owner, the town maintained that the violation ran with the property. Bob was able to reach a very satisfactory settlement, which preserved the landscaping and vistas, which enhanced the property's value. Bob also did a superb job when he represented me in the subsequent sale of my house.
