Stand-up guy
I asked a pretty serious question on Avvo related to my mother's cancer care. Her old hospital across the country wasn't sending her medical records to the new cancer hospitals in the area she moved to, and since time is important with cancer, we wanted to find other avenues to get her records to the new hospitals before the situation got more medically serious. It was exactly what we needed to know. The information is of such value because it has the potential to end up having saved her life, so I wanted to thank him for the speedy and helpful response.

humane, honest, integrity, professionalism
At one time, when I was a practicing MD in NY, I has tremendous legal difficulties (nothing to do with my state license) but was too financially too embarrassed to afford legal opinion. Though Mr Wolf knew this it did not stop him from recognizing the overall picture giving me enough time, patience and attention in an interview to steer me in the right direction to win through. I wished I could have paid him more for his help but it was only years later that I realized just how much his advice achieved for me. I don't think there are too many lawyers with that kind of altruism around.

Told me what I needed to know
I am acquainted with this lawyer through Avvo. He answered an embarrassing question and gave me the information I needed to protect my rights. That's what I needed to know. I wanted to publicly thank him and let him know I am very grateful.

Generous and decent
I emailed Mr. Wolf a scenario, asking if he was willing to take on a small case, with a pending settlement, either as an advisor (for a fixed fee), or to perhaps consider pursuing the case toward trial. He indicated that it was too small a case for him to get involved with, but he graciously and generously provided some brief advice by phone and email. Surely he can't do this for everyone--he has a business to run. The fact that this settlement would help someone indigent perhaps influenced his decision. Some other attorneys I've consulted have seemed to be in it for the "quick buck." I didn't get that from Mr. Wolf.

Most sensible and practical lawyer I've met thru Avvo
Anyone can tell you the law but the law does not always determine the outcome of a case or the practicality of even filing one. Eliot views things in a more practical and realistic way rather than an idealistic recitation of law that would apply in a perfect, altruistic Court system, which seems to be the way most lawyers on Avvo answer questions. That is a system that in 35 years in and out of Courts, I've never come across even once. Thank you again for your time Eliot.

Legal Suggestion on my question
Mr. Wolf took time out of his busy schedule to answer my question. His suggestions and guidance were outstanding and easy to follow. Compared to other input, his was by far the most helpful and for that I am truly appreciative. Again, thank you Mr. Wolf for your professional advice. I highly recommend his services.

Super Lawyer
I was very pleased with the support and assistance from Mr. Wolf and his team. They were very professional. They go above and beyond to assist their clients. They answer and return call promptly. They keep you updated about your case. They explain everything clearly. This team is the best and I understand now why they are called SUPER LAWYERS. Mr. Wolf gets the job done and he keeps a smile on your face. What I truly respect about Mr. Wolf and his team is that even though they are lawyers they treat every person that enter their office like a human being. This is what matters and counts the most. I was not turned away or belittled. They were upfront and honest about what they could do from what could not be expected of them. Mr. Wolf will always be a SUPER LAWYER to my family. Thanks.

Honest and extremely knowledgeable
Once again, I want to thank Eliot and his team for a job well done. Eliot was very successful in our case, but more importantly he was always available for my family if we had a questions or concerns. I contacted several law firms, and Eliot was confident when the initial contact occurred because of his vast knowledge and experience of over 25 years. We had the best lawyer on our side. Thank you again!!
