The best lawyer
He handled my case with professionalism and achieved an outstanding result. Dear my attorney- I am writing this letter to you to express my most sincere thanks for the most professional representation. You have stuck by me through the 5 months in dealing with this very stressful case. I admire your composure, work ethic and most of all excellent representation. I feel I have won my life back because of you despite the circumstances. Chesterton once said, 'I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of though, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.' Thank you attorney, for helping me through this tough time and aiding a new beginning of my life. THANK GOD for your knowledge of the law and I promise Kenneth E. Belkin

Review
I highly recommend Mr.Kenneth as a lawyer. I hired him o help with my case. From our first meeting, he was very knowledgeable about the specific area of law related to my case.He took the time to clearly explain the legal processes and options available to me in a way I could easily understand. Throughout our work together, Mr Kenneth was always responsive to any questions or concerns I had. He worked diligently on my case, thoroughly researching precedents and building a strong argument. I appreciated his calm and strategic approach. In court, he advocated for me confidently and respectfully. In the end, Mr Kenneth obtained a very favorable outcome for me, better than I had hoped for given the circumstances. I felt he fought hard on my behalf every step of the way. The reasonable fees charged for the quality of representation I received were also a plus. I would not hesitate to recommend mr Kenneth belkin for anyone needing an experienced and client-focused attorney. His expertise and dedication to his clients is clear - I couldn't have asked for better legal counsel.

Your next lawyer
Mr. Kenneth Belkin was everything I could ask for in a lawyer and more. He is compassionate, understanding, and will do everything in his power to fight on your behalf. He was very communicative and resolved my case in a timely manner. He genuinely cares about his clients and isn’t after your money like many lawyers in the city. My family and I are so grateful we found him. If I ever needed an attorney again, Mr. Kenneth would be my first choice, without a doubt. Hire him!

Case Dismissed
From the initial consultation to the case dismissal, Ken has been phenomenal. He was able to get the case dismissed in weeks and if it wasn’t for his representation, the case would have taken months. Throughout the process he has been very thorough and organized. Any relevant documents he has gathered, he would upload it to an online portal where you can keep track of your case. Communication with him was very effective. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner and also he keeps you in the loop by sharing any communication he has had with DA’s office. I never had to worry about the status of the case. He is very professional, knowledgeable and did a great job strategizing the case. He had a realistic plan as to how to get the case dismissed and went above and beyond to speed up the process which if took longer would have caused a lot of collateral damage. We got the best possible outcome. While other lawyers told me that it is impossible to achieve this outcome, Ken accomplished it. We cannot thank him more for what he has done for us. He truly cares about his clients!

I hold Kenneth in high regard
In my time knowing and working with Kenneth he has proven his skill set. He was very proactive with meeting deadlines and doing what’s right for my case. In a world where divorce can be very difficult he was not a part of the “difficult” process. He was streamlined with communication and a very down to earth but also laser focused advocate. I would retain him again should I need a lawyer in any future matters. I would recommend him in every capacity.

Great guy, great attorney
Ken gave me a great consultation and did some follow up work when I was concerned about a warrant. Could not have been more helpful, or a nicer guy. Would be my first call should I have need for an attorney again.

Highly Recommend
I had a sticky legal situation and found Ken on a whim through a Google search. I'm so happy I did and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer in NYC. He talked to me on the phone at length the first day I called him, without even having discussed a retainer or any fees. Once I did hire him he was extremely attentive, professional and resolved the matter within 2 weeks. He was available at all times to answer any and all questions throughout the process. While I hope to not need his services again, if I do I'll definitely be contacting Ken, I can't recommend him enough.
