    • I do not recommend Elena Tsizer.
    • I hired Elena 1-6 months ago.
    • Elena handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Tried to hire this attorney for my upcoming divorce hearing based on her AVVO rating. Our what was supposed to be initial meeting got rescheduled 3 times due to double bookings, being sick and being stuck a court.

    I had to give up in the end and look for a lawyer who is more responsible/responsive and does not get their clients stood up especially when they are on a tight dealine and a week before the court hearing.

    Totally unprofessional work ethic that does not fly with me and I am sure with many clients also no matter what how good that lawyer might be.

    Office Management should also get their act together when scheduling client meetings.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I feel that this review needs to be explained as it is inaccurate and is posted completely out of spite. Serdar never hired me and I never handled his divorce matter; consequently, he misrepresented the facts. In fact, we never even met. The reason why we never met was because Serdar waited until a week before his hearing to retain attorney. I spent at least an hour on the phone with him while I was out of the office due to illness. I was more than flexible in attempting to schedule our initial meeting, but between very short time available before his hearing, Serdar's work schedule and my schedule, it was very difficult. Finally, when I was in court on the day of our initial meeting and realized that I would not be back in time because of the delays in court proceedings, Serdar was offered to meet with a more experienced attorney in the office, who contacted him immediately via telephone call. Serdar refused to come in and posted this review instead. His phone calls were returned promptly; he was offered every reasonable opportunity to meet with an attorney and he was never treated unethically.
      I wish Serdar (and everyone who I ever speak with during this difficult time) nothing but good luck with his divorce matter. However, his review did not accurately represent what has occurred and needed to be explained.
      Respectfully,
      Elena Tsizer

    • I recommend Elena Tsizer.

    We have been in contact with Elena Tsizer for the past couple of years, and her legal advice and the understanding of the individual's needs, goals and the details of the particular situation is at the highest level. She is a knowledgeable attorney who trully acts in the client's best interest. We are very much obliged to her for the expertise, integrity and ongoing legal help.

  3. Glad I found her.

    • I recommend Elena Tsizer.
    • I hired Elena 1-3 years ago.
    • Elena handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Elena handled not only my divorce AND got me alimony, but a complicated child support case which originated in another state, and name change as well. Elena is well prepared for court, professional at all times, she keeps her cool and knows the laws. She stuck it out with me through more than 2 years and we won exactly what I wanted. What else can you ask for?

    • I recommend Elena Tsizer.
    • I hired Elena 1-3 years ago.
    • Elena handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    My ex-wife and I were divorced in 2004, but she has continued to maintain a regular barrage of legal action over the last nine years, and this includes a motion for modification and a guardianship issue that has taken three years to be heard. My current wife and I had been through two attorneys prior to finding Howard and his associate Elena Tsizer. We were desperate to find someone who believed in us, and who would actually fight for us. Right away we noticed a huge difference from our previous counsel. Howard and Elena were very attentive, responsive, and they actually cared. Within weeks of hiring them, positive changes began to happen. My ex-wife was denying me visitation with my son. Howard and Elena took action to ensure that I was treated fairly and, most importantly, that I can now spend regular time with my son. At first my ex-wife’s attorneys ignored them, as they usually did, but unlike most attorneys, Howard and Elena are fighters and they do not put up at all with unprofessional behavior. When they say that they take your case personally, they really mean it! The dedication of Howard, Elena, and their paralegal Julie Royle went way above and beyond anything we could have hoped for, and they successfully ended a reign of bullying that had been going on for 9 years.

    For the first time, Howard and Elena got my story out there in front of the judge. If you are just starting your divorce process or if you’re feeling beaten and you’re ready to give up, you need to hire these people. Having already experienced several attorneys who tell you what you want to hear, yet ultimately do nothing for you—except take your money, give Howard and Elena a try. We almost didn’t believe all of the glowing reviews about Lewis & Leeper on this site. But here we are, writing our own. Howard’s been described in reviews as being a real human being who genuinely cares. We can honestly say that’s true—and the same goes for Elena and Julie. Thank you all for getting my son back into our lives.

    • I recommend Elena Tsizer.
    • I hired Elena 1-3 years ago.
    • Elena handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 11 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Attorney Tziser was more knowledgeable and prepared than any other lawyer in the room during my bankruptcy procedings. I can't express how satisfied I was with her representation!

    • I recommend Elena Tsizer.
    • I hired Elena more than 3 years ago.
    • Elena handled my Alimony matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Elena Tsizer is one of the best attorneys I have met. She is quick to respond, knowledgeable, confident , caring and compassionate. Elena handled an alimony modification for me. It was not a pleasant time for me, but she always made me feel that things would turn out well and they did! And Elena was also very, very accomodating with my time constraints. My schedule is difficult, but I always felt that my time was as valuable as hers. Elena is a real find; use her services and you will not be disappointed.
