Ellery Worked behind the scenes with the Prosecuting attorney and Worked a Deal Based on the Facts and Managed to Keep me from Going into a 60 Day Lockup... Even though I was Found Guilty.. If I get in Trouble I will Call upon Ellery Once again...
Ellery knows the law, my family has had to use his service a few time in the last 30 years.
He will not let you be railroad when Mr. Sorkin took my son case it went from the public defender telling him to take 17 years to Mr. Sorkin getting him 3 years. he make sure the sentence fits the crime. I am eternally grateful for his knowledge of the law. His grate attitude doesn't hurt when your going through an emotional time. Thank you Ellery SB
My life had changed drastically, it had been turned upsidedown. I needed legal assistant. I was reffered to Mr. Sorkin. I have to admit that the first conversation lasted 10 minutes, he immediately expessed his consern and advised us of the options. I met with him on several occations and on each instance he answered all of my questions, he kept a positive attitude, and gave me the peace of mind that i desperately needed. Mr. Sorkin walked us through a very difficult month. He left no stone unturned and he challenged the charges vigorously. Like i mentioned one month. That is how fast it took for our case to get dismissed. I cant emphasize enough how thankfull i am for all of his work.
Ellery thank you very much..I appreciate evrything you did for me to settle my case and have the charges dismissed.I love your posetive attitude and your hard work..You are the best.
After receiving pension payments for nearly SEVEN years, I was notified that an error was made when calculating my late husbands pension amount. I was informed that I had been overpaid $235.85 per month, for a total of 83 months resulting in an overpayment of $19,575.52. The pension fund said they wanted the overpaid amount returned, and that future benefits would be adjusted to their revised figures. The new monthly payment would be nearly half of the current amount. This was just wrong so I sought out Mr. Sorkin's advice.
Mr. Sorkin wrote one single letter for me outlining a similar case that had been deemed wrong, and the pension fund changed their demands, and that I would not have to repay any amount. Future payments would be reduced to reflect the corrected pension amount. This certainly worked out a lot better than it could have.
Thank you so much Mr. Sorkin! You are my Hero!
I had a legal issue come up in the past. I needed a Lawyer. With some help from my wife, we found Ellery Sorkin in the Yellow Pages. My wife and I went in and met him. He took the time to hear me out. He listened to what I had to say. I listened to what my options were. Ellery Sorkin is my lawyer and will be far into the future. He is there when you need him. My wife calls Ellery whenever she has a concern. Ellery has lots of knowledge of the law. If for some reason he can't answer your question, he has contacts in the legal world. No one knows when your going to need a lawyer. But if you do, Ellery is the one you want on your side. Day or Night. My wife speaks to him more often than myself. He likes to hear that were doing good and that there are no issues. I would have to say that Ellery's fee's are reasonable.
He's good but want's you to cop out so he does not have to work so hard on your case! Gave me a bad deal 10 years ago. you get what you pay for
