  • Mr. Portela came to our rescue. I am very pleased with his services.

    “A Brooklyn Landlord refused to renew a rent-stabilized tenant's lease based on the Landlord's allegation that the Tenant, a resident of 37 years, and her daughter were not occupying the subject premises as their primary residence. After trial the court dismissed the Landlord's case with prejudice and concluded that the Petitioner did not meet his burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence that the Tenant failed to maintain a physical nexus at the subject residence that was ongoing and substantial. "I am thrilled and excited with the court's decision to dismiss my Landlord's suit. Mr. Portela came to our rescue. I am very pleased with his services, and I don't think anyone else would have provided better representation. Thank you.”

  • l. Mr. Portela isn't merely a good lawyer, he's a stand up guy. The support staff at the firm isn't just competent, they're extraordinary.

    “I had a great experience with the Portela Law Firm as an Intern a couple of summers back. Mr. Portela let me assist with all aspects of Litigation nearly every morning in just about every state and Federal court in this town. The procedural knowledge that I picked up here complimented by intellectual background and knowledge as a College Student. After finishing up, I landed a Government job as a Paralegal for the City. another as a RICO Unit Paralegal with good pay at an off Wall Street Medical Malpractice firm, and gained acceptance to several law schools, and scholarship offers at a few. I'm set to start this fall. Mr. Portela isn't merely a good lawyer, he's a stand up guy. The support staff at the firm isn't just competent, they're extraordinary. After two years in the legal industry post graduation, this is by far the best work environment I have had the privilege to be a part of. For clients especially, the individual care and attention the Firm devotes to every one of its clients seems, to me, the embodiment of zealous representation. I can't recommend them highly enough.”
