"As a charitable organization, we have encountered a number of gifts involving real estate - some simple and some quite complex. We have often used the services of Mr. Temkim in these matters and have never regretted our decision to do so. His proactive approach and broad knowledge of transactions that can be mind boggling in their complexity has been a major asset to us in these situations.
"Harvey is one of the most-liked and respected attorneys in Madison, Wisconsin. People know that his vast personal experience in Real Estate in this part of the country is invaluable, as he seems to know something critically important concerning just about every parcel of land in the county. Even more importantly, he understands and has worked with just about everyone who deals in development, construction, financing, or any other aspect of real estate development in the area. Even in transactions when he may not know the person across the table, his reputation precedes him and, more than not, creates an atmosphere where the parties at the table are likely to follow his lead in order to get a deal done. Our organization and family are proud and lucky to have Harvey as a counselor, friend, and invaluable business asset."
"Harvey Temkin is among the very top Real Estate lawyers in south-central Wisconsin. His expertise and negotiating skills have enabled me to assemble a stable and efficient portfolio of commercial properties. His conservative approach to risk management and his critical insights have helped me steer clear of dangerous economic waters.
In addition, he is an idiosyncratic raconteur, often very amusing, who can brighten up the most boring closing. He is a trusted advisor and has become a good friend.
"I have known Harvey Temkin for more than 30 years and he has represented us extensively over the last 15. He has actively advised us and participated in everything from dispute resolution with a former shareholder to a corporate reorganization and family, estate, and succession planning and a significant (for us anyway) real estate investment.
Harvey is amazingly bright and, at the same time, most approachable with a wonderful sense of humor. He thinks strategically and is effective at viewing issues in the broad context of the real world. Harvey is extremely creative, not only in divining solutions to complex problems, but also in looking at (and getting his clients to look at) situations and issues from insightful perspectives.
Harvey is well experienced in the law and in business with vast exposure to a wide variety of clients, transactions, and circumstances. He brings that experience to bear by taking a personal interest in his clients' interests and issues. Harvey exercises initiative and is efficient and timely in his work. He is most definitely proactive.
I highly recommend Harvey Temkin as a lawyer and advisor in any real estate or business transaction or situation. I often seek his counsel on pure business matters with no real legal issues.
