ALL ABOUT MONEY
Absolutely ridiculous. I called this lawyer today to discuss my case and to determine whether I would hire him. This lawyer did not even know what the facts of my case were before he started dishing out large dollar amounts. Then he foolishly used the word "toxic case" which contradicted two (2) court orders from Judge H and Judge S on my case that proves my case was NOT toxic. In fact, Judge S sided with us in our argument that the IMD tenant's facts did not establish "actual living purposes".

mr smollens really answered all my questions completely. he was thorough and very helpful. he relieved much of the stress in a tenuous landlord/tenant situation. he took the time to point out specifics, and didn't just skim the problem in the least.
highly recommended *****

I found myself in tangled a very serious legal matter. I explained my problem on the site and got an immediate response from Mr. Smollens. He gave me clear and sound advice on the situation and the importance of seeking counsel right away. I am grateful and fortunate that Mr. Smollens took the time to give me sound advice and direction on the matter.

I haven't met Mr. smollens in person. I called Mr. Smollens many times and was so grateful yo have gotten through to him. He made me feel at ease with a very hard situation I have been put through. I haven't hired him because I am waiting for him to come back from vacation. He was very kind to me. At these moments that's what I needed after encountering horrible people in my home. I would recommend him based on our short conversations.

I spoke to Steven Smollens and sent him some document to review.
He tried to convince me to hire him by answering many questions on Avvo.
I am not going to hire him at all and not recommending him.He is very expensive and first the money should be consider then the case. When I said I cannot efford so much money to pay ,He ask if I can ask some one to borough the money to me. I am talking about thousands of Dollars just for eviction case.

I would add "ditto" to every positive review on this site. Steve Smollens represented me in a tenant/landlord matter in NYC. He negotiated a remarkable settlement for me. I could not have gotten to first base with this case without him. His expertise was obvious from the first phone call to him. It was also immediately apparent that he was on my side and didn't hesitate to evaluate my situation and explain it to me so that I understood it. He is the most "real" attorney I have ever dealt with. A straight shooter, knows his field expertly and put my worries to rest. I would highly recommend him. I appreciated his honesty, integrity and experience and know he would do the same for you.

This is the second time Mr. Smollens has assisted me with my rental apartment. I am just so in awe of a consummate professional who donates his time so kindly. I am in the unenviable position of being a low income tenant which lacks the funding to hire an attorney. Mr.Smollens is fast to respond to my questions, in a clear, concise and non -judgemental manner. His advice to me just could have saved me my home.

I really have to say how much faith I have restored in human nature when I see talented professionals, such as Steven, spending their spare time answering questions from people who cannot afford legal help. He has been doing this for 37 years, yet he goes home and answers our annoying questions, just to help us..He is a rare gem, and it speaks volumes about his character.
That said, may I also add, that he answers the questions without delay, without judgement, and very clearly and informatively.
Yes, in a world where we idolize the Kim Kardashians of the world, where is the praise for the real heroes like Steven Smollens?
Needless to say I am a very grateful fan.

Attorney Smollens should be awarded for his great ability to answer questions accordingly. We had hired an attorney of no use but I went on Avvo.com and discovered Attyn Smollens who answered every question and he was on the money. Many thanks Attny Smollens, you are a great Attorney.
