5.0 stars 112 totalReview Elliot Stomel
I received several, very serious, traffic tickets out of Franklinville for an accident in what was a case of mistaken identity. The gravity of the situation kept me up at night. Mr. Stomel reassured me he would have the situation resolved expediently and favorably. He stayed in constant communication with me, was readily accessible, and would immediately return my calls if I had any questions. I've had many experiences with lawyers, and this was by far the best. Not to sound cliche', but Mr. Stomel didn't view me as merely a paycheck. He was genuinely interested in my well-being throughout the whole ordeal, and thoroughly exhausted all avenues in preparation of meeting the prosecution with an extremely well-prepared, multi-faceted defense. When we had to appear, the first thing I noticed is that Mr. Stomel is extremely well-respected and held in high esteem among the entire legal community: judges, prosecutors, lawyers, etc. He again reassured me of how quickly he would get this matter resolved to my satisfaction. I never doubted, yet the results were well beyond my expectations. The prosecution sought several appearances to meet our arguments, but to no avail. No trial was necessary, the prosecutor willingly conceded to our request, and all charges were dismissed. If any unexpected events should again occur in my life, with so much at stake, I can confidently say Mr. Stomel is most certainly the attorney who am fully trusting to represent me.
I am fully satisfied with the service Elliot provided. He got best possible result for my case.
Great communication between Elliot and I. You can reach him on his personal phone and will call you back within reasonable time, minding he may be with another client or in court. Gave great council and knew everyone in the Cherry Hill Municipal Court. He was able to get my charges downgraded. Furthermore was able to have me placed on conditional discharge with charges being eligible for expungement after a year of probation. I am an out of state client who is 100% pleased with his service. Thank you , Elliot!
I retained Elliot to represent me facing several serious moving violations including a reckless. Elliot was professional and courteous from our first conversation to our last. He took my prior violations into account and I believe he would not have taken the case if he could not have helped me.
Elliot told me what to expect at each step of the process and is a good communicator. At the court date he was well known by the staff, judge, and he also knew the prosecutor. All of my tickets were reduced to one moving violation and two points, which Elliot showed me how to get rid of. I could not have asked for a better resolution.
Elliot said that he is not happy until his clients are happy, and until he feels that there is nothing else he could do to help. I believe that and would recommend him to anyone looking for a competent honest defense lawyer.
I called Elliot Stomel the day after I received two tickets--speeding in an (inactive) construction zone and as a result, reckless driving. After our first consultation I could tell that he was knowledgeable and down to earth, and was even on a first name basis with everyone at Pennsauken Municipal Court. I felt at ease from the time I hired him until my court date. It was my first moving violation and my first time in court, but Elliot guided me through it. The day of my trial he gave me a realistic best case scenario and worked out an even better deal with the prosecutor. I highly recommend him!
If you are searching the Internet for a good lawyer, your search ends here. Elliot is the most straight forward, honest, and realistic lawyer I have ever had to come into contact with. I talked to 10 different lawyers before Elliot and he was the only one who didn't force me to hire him just so he could take my money. He absolutely has my best interest in mind and did everything he could to get the best outcome of the case despite the circumstances. I could not have asked for a better experience with Elliot.
I was pulled over and given five tickets, one reckless three speeding and a DWI. Elliot is a great lawyer, he had gotten the judge to drop everything but the wreckless driving offence. Hiring Elliot has changed my life for the better.
From the very start, Mr. Stomel was down to earth and straight to the point. He has years of experience in the surrounding community. He carries a seemingly wonderful reputation among his peers, court staff, and the prosecution. He fought to help me at every turn, answered all my questions, and never left my side during our entire courtroom appearance. A complete professional.
After being charged with a DUI, I started my lawyer search on Avvo and narrowed my choice down to about 4 or 5 attorneys. Out of all the attorneys I contacted Elliot was the only one I was able to speak with personally, which was a good sign and moved me in his direction right from the start.
I scheduled an appointment and after meeting with him I was very pleased. His fees were well below the quotes I received from the other attorneys and he was upfront and straightforward about what was I was facing and how he intended to handle my case. Further, based on the DUI-related research I had done on my own prior to meeting with him, he was very knowledgeable on the penalties and consequences associated with DUI in New Jersey.
But his greatest asset turned out to be the personal relationships he had with the Court personnel in the County where I was being charged. While I do not know the extent of his connections throughout the state of New Jersey, it appears that he has developed many relationships throughout NJ and that he is well-respected by most. Both the Judge and DA knew him well and I could tell there was a positive connection between them. I am sure this played a factor in the outcome I received in my case. My Tier 3 offense essentially became a Tier 1. My BAC (0.15+) was thrown out and I basically received the minimum penalty/fees possible for a DUI in NJ.
Throughout the duration of my case, I never spoke or met with anyone but Elliot and he was personally there to meet me in Court both times I had to appear and that in itself is a huge comfort and relief when you hear your name called and you're standing there in front of the Judge. Im quite sure I received the best outcome possible and Elliot made sure to verify that I was certain and confident in the choices I was making throughout the process. Although I have no point of comparison to other DUI lawyers (and I hope I will never have to again), I am completely satisfied with the representation I received from Elliot Stomel and I have no regrets hiring him.
I was referred to Mr.Stomel through a friend. He under promised and over delivered. Was very realistic with his approach and execution. Would recommend him to anyone without hesitation
