“They Kept Their Cool and Brought the Case to a Conclusion.”

Adam Leitman Bailey represented Lois Sasson & “It’s My Party’s” Lesley Gore in a favorable buy-out of their apartment after extensive fire damage rendered it inhabitable.

Can you please state your name?

My name is Lois Sasson

What do you do for a living?

I design Jewelry. I manufacture and sell it to Bergdorf Goodman and very good people.

How long have you been doing this? Over thirty years.

I assume its doing very well?

Now its getting. The economy is getting better.

You are still involved in that?


Could you please quickly explain the problem that led you to seek out legal help?

Horrible problem. I really don’t even want to talk about. It happened in December 2012, we woke up and there was a small burning in the room and left the room and part of my bedroom in an apartment that I lived in for 47 years. It was destroyed.

It was a converted building, a building that was going condo so the individual owner of the apartment, whom I never met, refused to fix it so I had to find another place to live and then they were suing us for what had happened. It was an accident and so we came here. My sister has done business with Adam happily remarried and she referred him to us and so we signed papers and he, in a year and three months, finished the place for us.

And by your sister what did she say?

My sister loves Adam. She said if ever she had an advocate…my sister is in real estate. She is the Senior Vice President of | . Her name is Susan Garner and she is in the New Times this week and she was with a landlord up against Adam and Adam won and she said if she ever had a case she would use Adam and so she referred him and he took the case. Jamie Friedland was the first attorney who helped us on the case and she is fantastic. She signed all the papers and gave us much better advice than any of the other lawyers that we have seen before.

Can you think of any qualities or characteristics of this firm at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. that make us stand apart from others?

Your my first case so I don’t have a lot but my partner who is constantly dealing with lawyers, I would say that it’s always like pulling teeth. I won’t say any of the bad jokes about lawyers but they kept their cool and they let me cry, scream whatever I meant to be angry, dissatisfied and they brought the case through with a good conclusion and they listened and so basically lawyers that listen “unheard of” and within a year and couple of months got resolved. [Is there anything you want to add Lesley? No, I agree with everything you said]. They did a very good job and right now I am so happy that it’s over. I can turn them into action figures. It’s a process. They sue you, you bring it to them. They stop and bring it to court, they sit and speak to the other attorneys. It costs money, a lot of money but its over and that’s what I care about that they brought it to a conclusion.

So, you mentioned that they listened to you?


Glad to hear that?


Do you think you made the right choice by coming to Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.?

I made the right choice, ladies and gentlemen. This is a great firm. Come to it. For your closings, for your buying, for your everything. Wonderful group of young people and Adam is a tyrant.

Do you have anything to add before we end this?

No, I just want to know that these people are not going to attack my psyche any longer. That’s it.

Lesley: There are no guarantees. There are no guarantees in life.

So you would recommend?

I will recommend. Not that I would I, but I will and I shall.

Thank you so much!! My pleasure.
