Meet New York Attorney Jules M. Haas

Jules Haas graduated in the top 10% of his class at New England School of Law in Boston and served on Law Review.

While in college, Jules was the local winner in a national contest sponsored by the United Nations Association. That essay appears in the Congressional Record.

As a student, Jules enjoyed history, politics, English, political science, and learning about the workings of government. He was fortunate that his Grandfather Lew Haas — a New York City Alderman and the man responsible for passing legislation that required Manhattan taxis to display medallions — helped Jules gain a hands-on understanding of the local political machinery. That proximity to government led Jules to become involved with various political campaigns and, during law school, to work for a State Senator.

Among Jules' major accomplishments was opening his own law practice, serving on the staff of a NYC Councilperson and NYS Assemblyman, and being elected as a State Committee Member.

Today, more than anything, Jules enjoys being successful on behalf of a client. "I enjoy helping clients resolve their legal issues successfully," he says, "especially when things looked bad at the outset."

He also enjoys working through the nuances of case detail, uncovering something that didn't initially seem obvious, coming to grips with things that can't be controlled, and hearing a happy client say, "Thanks, Jules."

Do You Need A New York City Lawyer?

Some problems are easy to solve – others, however, require lawyers. Especially in a highly regulated city like New York, it's always best, if you have (or think you might have) a legal problem, to at least consult with a lawyer to decide if you need one.

I am a New York City lawyer representing clients throughout the New York area.  I enjoy being successful on behalf of a client. I provide my clients with legal representation in various areas of law including real estate, trusts and estates, probate, estate planning, business law and guardianship proceedings. I'll work hard to help you resolve your legal issues successfully – especially if things looked bad at the outset. I enjoy working through the nuances of case detail, uncovering something that didn't initially seem obvious and coming to grips with things that can't be controlled so that I can hear a happy client say, "Thank you so much Jules."

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.
