  • US Bank National Association v. Foezullah Babul (Queens Sup. 32423/2009)

    Successfully vacated the borrower’s default and Order of Reference
    Bank commenced a foreclosure action against the borrowers in 2009. Borrowers ignored the matter and never hired an attorney to defend the action. Borrowers finally retained our firm in 2015 to defend the foreclosure action. At this point, the bank had already obtained an Order of Reference and was moving forward towards auction. We moved swiftly to file a Motion to Vacate the Default, which was ultimately successful. The default and Order of Reference was granted, and we filed an Answer to the Summons and Complaint.

Customer Reviews

Mr. Poltielov did an excellent job with my case. I hired him to sue my condo building and management company because I was being overcharged on my monthly common charges. I tried to handle it on my own, but did not get anywhere with my condo board for three years. Mr. Poltielov filed a lawsuit and the matter was resolved within 4 months. Plus he was able to get my reimbursement for all my legal fees from the condo building. I was very happy with his services and would highly recommend him.

We recently purchased an apartment with the help of Ariel’s legal services. Ariel was very professional. He answered every communication in a timely manner. His work was very thorough. We had a tight timeline and he was able to coordinate with the various parties to accommodate us. The whole process was very smooth due to his diligence and guidance. We highly recommend him.

Hired Mr. Poltielov to help navigate a lease of a dental practice I was purchasing. He was easy to work with and explained everything (I am legally illiterate) as well as helping with the landlord lease. Professional and thorough. Will use again

Mr. Poltielov was very professional from day one. He helped me find the best possible medical facility for the best possible price. He helped me through negotiations, reviewed and help me alter the contract. He was present and available to me throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Mr. Poltielov for anyone who is looking for an honest and a reliable lawyer

My closing process on my home was very smooth with Ariel. I was informed thoroughly on all the processes and he always answered on everyone of my phone calls. He is very patient and his explaination process is excellent. I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Poltielov has assisted me in 2 cases and has successfully garnered me a desireable result. I highly recommend Rafael Poltielov for his professionalism, attentiveness, knowledge of the law and ability to think outside the box.
