Patient, informative, face-to-face counsel for your life’s legal needs

William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor at Law on Staten Island provides quality legal services in the states of New York and New Jersey. Our clientele consists of small businesses and middle-class families who require thorough, dependable legal counsel, but don’t have the luxury of paying exorbitant fees. Since 1997, our practice has built a reputation for reliable, highly personalized service in a variety of areas, including:

  • Real estate — We educate our clients about the advantages and potential pitfalls of any property agreement.
  • Wills & probate — We help middle-class families plan ahead to maximize benefits later on.
  • Elder law — We offer sensitive counsel and firm advocacy to seniors facing end-of-life issues.
  • Business law — We help set new ventures on a solid footing and assist mature companies with managing growth and operations.

Rule number one for Staten Island real estate: Always know what you’re signing!

The key to any successful transaction is to know what you’re getting and what you’re giving up. Yet, what a real estate lawyer often sees is a buyer falling so much in love with a property that they don’t bother reading the fine print on the purchase contract. We get that – you’re in love! Why should you sift through all that tedious contract language to uncover a term or condition that will spoil your new relationship? That’s why we’re here: We perform the due diligence necessary so that you have all the information you need to make a level-headed decision. Your property purchase will either delight or haunt you for a very long time. We help ensure your long-term satisfaction.

Knowledgeable lawyer provides thorough service in welcoming environment

Our clients appreciate the amount of time we spend in face-to-face meetings, educating them about the law and how it pertains to their circumstances. We take that time because we know that when you’re fully informed, you’ll make the best decisions for your family or your business. Our “face time” helps us get to know your goals and objectives, and learn about other areas of your life where you might benefit from legal safeguards. Many of our repeat clients first came to us for real estate advice and then started consulting us for estate planning, elder care and business matters. It may be the warm, friendly environment of our office or our reasonable fees that keeps these clients coming back, but we also like to think they appreciate the results they get from our conscientious service.
