Scott is honest, takes his time, listen's (and i talk a lot) AND GETS THINGS DONE FAST!!!!!
Scott actually cares about you, and doesn't look to just "bill" you!
his office always tells you when he is in, at court etc… he always gets right back to you!
i would give scott 9000000 starts if i could! he made my divorce EASY, painless and FAST!!!!!!

Scott and his team are amazing. Scott is patient, professional and knowledgeable. I was in a bitter divorce battle that lasted over years. Scott helped me through every step of the way, especially during those pretty dark moments where you felt like you hit the bottom. Because of Scott and his team's persistence, I was successful in securing my residence and my child's custody. The tremendous impact Scott and his team on my life is something I will always be grateful for. Because of them, I am now able to build a meaningful relationship with my child in my own house. I would recommend Eiges and Orgel without any hesitation.

After reading positive reviews and meeting with Mr. Orgel, I retained him as my divorce attorney. Throughout the case, he seemed largely disinterested, failed to stop the opposing attorney's bullying, made agreements to postpone court dates without consulting me, didn't show up to hearings sending other (and junior) attorneys on his behalf, and overall did not represent my best interests as his client.

Scott is a very knowledgeable attorney who represented me in my recent divorce case. He was easy to work with as was very kind and caring. Not only did he seem to care deeply about my case, he cared about me as a person and how I was handling all of the stress involved (the divorce, custody, and my financial situation). He is definitely someone you want on your side to help you through this difficult time. He was always available on the phone or by email, and he even gave me his cell phone number. He responded to my emails promptly and even answered my calls on the weekends. Above all I am very appreciative that for all the work he did and how he helped me through my divorce. I genuinely felt he and his office cared for me and my children. I highly recommend him.

Compassion, professionalism, integrity and expert guidance are just some words that came to my mind when mentioning Eiges & Orgel PLLC. I worked with Mr. Orgel and his team during my divorce and I have to say they really give lawyers a GOOD name.
Hearing some of the divorce horror stories, I was extremely stressed, lost and scared when I started this process. When I called Eiges & Orgel PLLC, I was surprised that the receptionist immediately transferred me to an actual attorney to answer my questions. Mr. Orgel was clear and professional on the phone, and addressed some of the basic divorce 101 questions right away. I could tell he was not rushing me on the phone, and it was not about a “sales” call where the attorneys just want to get you to their office and start charging fees.
I am really glad that I signed up with Eiges & Orgel. My case involves child custody, property division, and unfortunately, a not so amicable ex. Mr. Orgel was knowledgeable, compassionate, and understanding. He is firm and aggressive when necessary, and always discloses the full picture before a decision is reached. There are numerous times Mr.Orgel has helped me in moments of panic, usually when my child is involved, even if it means after work hours and weekends. Nothing was too trivial or detailed to be addressed. If needed, Mr. Mr. Orgel "magically" translates them into legal terms so they could be appropriately handled in the court of law.
Mr. Orgel and his team truly care about their clients, and what they are going through in this difficult time of their lives. Mr. Orgel and his team have been there for me every step of the way. Mr. Orgel has kept me calm during some desperate and difficult times.When your lawyer is on the phone with you all the way through on a weekend morning because you are going through a custody crisis, you know you have someone good.
I cannot thank Mr. Orgel and his team enough for what they have done for me. There are many attorneys out there, but you want to choose someone who puts your interests first, and genuinely cares about YOU. Without any hesitation, I recommend Eiges & Orgel PLLC, wholeheartedly.

Mr. Orgel is an outstanding attorney. He was prompt with meetings, attentive to my concerns about my case, proactive in finding a resolution that did not involve a lengthy trial and vigilant about details. He anticipated problems before they arose, circumvented potentially huge issues that popped out of nowhere and managed to be sensitive to my emotional state while being firm with what he knew was best for the case. He did not sugarcoat things but was totally realistic while also being flexible to issues on which I was not willing to bend. In court, he was self assured, prepared and made me feel secure that I had gone with the right attorney. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

I hired Mr. Orgel to help me with my divorce. I hired him once I realized that my first attorney wasn't getting the job done. He came in to the case, got in touch with my wife's attorney and made my position clear He then made sure the judge understood our situation and the truth about who takes care of our daughter. Ultimately, Mr. Orgel got me custody of our daughter, more money than I expected and more of the house that I expected. I truly appreciate having Mr. Orgel as my attorney and would recommend him to anyone getting a divorce or seeking custody.

This attorney did nothing but worsen my case. He charged me a lot of money and did absolutely nothing for me. Comes to find out he also charges for travel time and charged me $700 for calls and time to get paperwork together. He came to court empty handed with an empty file. He did NOT defend me in any matter that was bought upon in front of the judge. All he did was stand by my side and looked pretty.
I would defiantly NOT recommend this attorney.

I highly recommend Scott Orgel as a Divorce Attorney in New York City. On the day that Scott returned my inquiry call, I had spoken to 5 or 6 lawyers who were all very aggressive and slightly bossy. Each lawyer began spouting off to me their list of credentials and all the horror stories of things that my ex could possibly do to me *if I didn't hire them immediately to "protect myself." Not one person said they were sorry for my pain, or understood what I was going through. One lawyer, a top-notch "bully" in Brooklyn even suggested that I tell my ex I was pregnant in order to get him to pay up. I was disgusted and insulted that someone would advise me to do such a thing, in order to get a higher payout. I was riled up with anxiety, and fear that this process was going to be way over my head.
My husband and I were married for 2 years and had agreed to end things civilly out of court. It was important to remain amicable during the process and to refrain from high-drama. I was simply looking for someone to explain my rights to me, and get me my fair share of the assets. When Scott called, I immediately knew he was the attorney for me. Scott's mannerisms and tone were clear, compassionate, and level-headed. His voice was calm and he even expressed that he understood how difficult this time was for me. I expressed that it felt awful to have to have my husband "served with papers." Scott, said I didn't have to do that, and that he would serve the papers to my husbands attorney to avoid humiliating him. That was very touching to hear. Finally, I felt I was talking to someone who understood how I wanted to handle things. I made an appointment with Scott right away, and cancelled all the others.
The consultation was at a reasonable price and so was the retainer. Within 10 minutes of meeting Mr. Orgel, I hired him. He was just as he was over the phone; calm, cool, collected and trustworthy. He put me at ease and explained that my case was easy, and that there was no need to create extra drama or play games. Boom! Done! Hired! That's all it takes people… someone with a brain who knows the law and who isn't going to be a dirt bag.
In the end, I was very impressed with Scott's knowledge of the law and how fast he got my settlement. I received my settlement and separation agreement in 30 days after I filed for divorce! I admit there were times when I didn't want to listen to Scott's advice because I thought my ideas were better, but in the end, I had to trust that he had my best interest at heart-and he did. I am very thankful that I hired Scott for my divorce and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants straight answers, no games, and doesn't want to waste time.
