My regular family attorney had recommended using Elliot Stone, for defending myself against a Joe Hand Promotions lawsuit. When you first get served and, find out that you are being sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars it can be terrifying. Elliot put my worries to ease immediately, with his knowledge and experience with this type of case, and the law firm that had filed the suit against me. It seems that Verizon does not bill commercial customers properly for pay per view events. In this day of technology, trade marks, copy rights you end up being labeled a pirate and not a cool one like Johnny Dep. You hope to never need an attorney, but if you do in this type of case you could do no better and trust in Stone Law Firm to fight for your rights as small business owners.

DO NOT use this lawyer! I hired Mr Stone and his group to help me with my student loans. They collected their lawyer fees ASAP but then after that NOTHING. The first person I was working with didn't get me my paper work when I needed it and the suddenly just didn't work there anymore, and that's when I should've known something was wrong. They have been telling me "these things take time" for the past 3 months and meanwhile they have taken NO steps to help with my loans which are now on the verge of default. I've tried to contact them a number of times, just to find out what I should do about Sallie Mae calling, but so far nothing. They don't care about you or your situation, just their fees and getting new clients. Avoid at all costs, you're better off working with another lawyer or the lender themselves.

Mr. Stone will provide a free phone consultation which is useful for when you decide his services are worth paying for, and will definitely save you money on student loans in the long run. He also offers a free book about student loans. Additionally, he will work out a payment plan to fit your budget, therefore in my opinion, given the high cost of attorney fees, its a great benefit that Mr. Stone is willing to work with your situation.

I needed a lawyer for a student loan case that came about 15-20 years after I paid off my student loan. I called around to about 5 different lawyers who said they did not handle student loans but the 5 kept referring me to Elliot. One of the lawyers went so far to say he would make sure Elliot would give me a call. Sure enough Elliott called me within 15 min.
Elliott is a world class lawyer and does not fit the lawyer stereotype. He was always available to take my calls, if he was in court he would email me to let me know and get back to me as soon as he was available. He was very responsive to emails, our preferred communication method. All emails were generally answered the same business day, usually within the hour they were sent. He also kept me informed of my case and any developments. I was never in the dark as to what was going on. When there was no news or developments he would email me to let me know.
Elliot's knowledge about student loan law and case history is amazing. So much so he know more than the other parties lawyer and the mediator. In fact they had to go research the laws he was quoting because the mediator and the other lawyer was not aware they those laws existed.
Above all Elliott's primary concerns was me as a person. Elliot main focus was to make sure I was getting the best financial settlement even though it would be less money for him.
I was not one of Elliot's largest client in fact I am sure I am the smallest client he as ever had but he always made me feel my case was his most important.
