Yes it is okay. Just make sure he or she is a good attorney. Google the attorney's name and see what comes up. Three important factors to consider when hiring an attorney are the following:
1) If the property is in Brooklyn, it is a good idea to use an attorney who is located in Brooklyn.
2) It is a good idea to hire an attorney who specializes primarily in real estate!
3) Is is also nice if your attorney has some experience.
If your attorney meets all that criteria, you are most likely in good hands!
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Good luck!
