Emily was very professional and easy to deal with handling our closing. She answered our calls and emails instantly and even got our closing moved up two weeks to accommodate our schedule. She put us as ease during what sometimes is a stressful process buying a property. We would recommend her and will definitely use her to represent us in any future business.

Emily Declercq represented me during a real estate transaction.

She is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the entire process to me.

She was extremely responsive to my questions and concerns. I had peace of mind knowing that she was making sure that my interests were being taken care of.

I would not hesitate to hire her again for any legal matters I might have in the future.

I hired Emily to handle my real estate transaction.

As a first time home seller, I was unsure of the whole process. Emily was able to answer all my questions and understood all my concerns pertaining to inspections and work that needed to be done before the sale.

She always got back to me promptly and having a set price instead of an hourly rate was also a plus! I definitely recommend Declercq Law Firm!

My husband and I recently worked with Emily when buying our first house.

As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and concerns about how the process worked. Emily stood by us from beginning to end to answer all of our questions and to make sure we were comfortable with the entire process.

She was very professional and responsive and always had our best interest in mind. Overall, working with her was a fantastic experience and made our home buying process easy and stress free.

Our mortgage situation was a nightmare but you would never know it with Emily Declercq.

Email after email, she navigated our complicated process with incredible skill, knowledge, and, frankly, patience. Emily was not to blame for ANY of our hurdles and yet she consistently outperformed what could be reasonably expected from a real estate attorney.

Perhaps most impressively, she handled the seller's attorney beautifully when that person's approach proved difficult. Some other outstanding aspects of her work with us include: responsiveness, efficiency, and just overall quality of her services. I still can't believe we received the kind of skill and professionalism for what we paid.

And now that we are in our first home our gratitude for Emily has continued to grow. If you are looking for a highly competent, yet personable attorney who is never surprised, never stumped, and never outworked, there is nobody better than Emily Declercq.

As a transgender person I have struggled with our legal system. It was not something I had even considered as I accepted myself and opened up to family and friends. When I realized I might need help with changing my name I went to an attorney from a large firm. I paid the retainer after being told it should cover all the costs. I ended up doing the majority of the work. That included representing myself in court. I received a very large bill regardless. At that point I decided I couldn’t trust attorneys. I struggled through much of my legal work after that experience.

I was blessed when I met Ms. Declercq. She offered to help with my birth certificate which needed the proper name and gender. She also changed the deeds for some property I owned to reflect my reality.

With her firm I found the personal attention very reassuring. Having worked with a “prestigious" large firm the difference made the entire process less stressful and much more rewarding.

I would highly recommend her firm to any who need help from a diligent, competent, understanding attorney.

Emily is awesome, worked with her on a Real Estate transaction.

We liked that she was responsive and clear about what was happening in our negotiations and what to expect. Emily was always available for us and we truly felt supported.

It was great that we were able to work together remotely during the COVID shutdowns, and then a socially distant closing was accommodated and arranged. Pricing was straightforward, with no surprises at the end. Highly recommended.

Terrific return on the dollar. I felt like I was her only client. And likewise Emily was on the case. Or cases. I hired her to provide legal advice for closing on a property, for representing me in court for a minor violation and setting up several LLCs.

Happy to say she stayed in close communication and completed all work successfully and quickly. Like manic. Not disappearing but getting the jobs done quickly. Recommend her for legal counsel unreservedly.

– Kevin Ferry, New York, NY

I was referred to Emily through my Realtor. I will always recommend Emily to anyone I encounter that is looking for a no nonsense lawyer.

Emily was always working on my behalf. She was easily able to reach and always eager to help. She took no nonsense from the other party and stood her ground for me.

She was very patient, and explained things thoroughly. She was always very pleasant and she made me feel very comfortable throughout my entire real estate transaction.

You are in very good hands by hiring Emily. You will not regret your decision, she will fight for you until the very end. She has your best interest at heart.

Emily recently represented us in a real estate transaction and it was quickly evident through working with her that she is knowledgeable, experienced, and respectful.

It was our first time selling a home and she was with us every step of the way. During the process, Emily spent ample time with us to walk us through the process and ensure that we understood what was expected of us.

She was always available and very helpful when it came to negotiating with the buyer’s attorney! When the buyer found issues during the walk through, Emily negotiated on our behalf and was tough when needed. She always had our back and protected our interests to the fullest!

Overall, it was a wonderful experience! We highly recommend Emily and look forward to potentially working with her again in the future.
