The best
Scott helped us when our insurance company denied our claim. He knew we were wronged took our case, was responsive, updated us along the way and got us the rightful money we were owed. For a hardworking family with a mortgage and kids the money he successfully got us helped keep us on our feet and repair the damage to our home. We were really impressed by the entire process working with Scott and highly recommend him. Thanks again!!!!

Mr. Thomas Donovan
Worked with Scott on an Allstate Ins. case concerning a house destroyed by fire. Scott was the consummate professional who was true to his word on everything he said. There were no surprises, the opposition was outclassed and the case was settled without going to court. Scott's associate and staff were easy to work with and updated me periodically as the case moved along. I heartily recommend Scott and would definitely seek his services if ever needed again.

Peofessional, understanding and exceptionally talented lawyer
Scott Aqulnick was able to do what my large Park Avenue Firm gave up on. Get me back money from an Insurance company that wouldn't pay me for the loses on my apartment that burned down to the ground last August 2015. Scott is a great attorney! Very professional yet compassionate! Scott kept me well informed and took the time to talk to me whenever I called. Best of all I received an excellent settlement! I would recommend Scott ten out of ten in every case! Thanks again Scott for everything.

Hurricane Sandy
Scott was retained by me to handle a huge loss to Lido Golf Course and my home. He far exceeded my expectations. He is an excellent attorney and negotiator. I would highly recommend Scott and his firm.

Job well done
Experienced and knowledgeable attorneys with a great practice and excellent staff. Accompanied me to a EUO hearing for an auto accident hearing, patiently waited several hours and finally resolved the issue with the insurance company by attaining a decision in my favor. Recognized fraud and tackled it like a pro. Bravo.

The Best Damn Lawyer Ever
Scott's tireless efforts and diligence have afforded us the luxury of a good night's sleep. With all we have been through these past four months, losing everything but the clothes we were wearing to a fire, I was beginning to think that was impossible. Yesterday was the best day this family has seen in a long time! Directly as a result of the relentless work Scott Agulnick put forth for us. Never once did he complain with my neverending string of emails, questions and calls. He was always patient, forthright and always honest. Never once did he sell us a dream or give up. But on top of it all, he made us feel like we were a priority and we mattered. He gave what could have been a strictly business transaction a very human and humane touch, his kind spirit and outgoing personality made this ordeal much easier to bear.

I'm truly grateful our paths crossed.
I found Scott without any initial recommendation after an unfortunate fire we had in our apartment. The pressure between the condo Board, an uncooperative tenant and the Insurance company can become quite overwhelming. Scott guided us through the entire ordeal with understanding and professionalism. He was very conscious of our needs and thoroughly understood our concerns. He also had a thorough knowledge of real estate law which was absolutely essential in this situation. What was initially an absolute nightmare was shortly under control. I would recommend Scott in an instant based on the knowledge he possessed and his determination to follow through on all aspects of the case. Scott - thank you once again....Steve

Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
Scott was referred by a good friend and a client of mine. He was highly recommended once my client knew my needs. I started working with him in late 2007. He has been instrumental in helping me understand various aspects of my case in depth and helped me with all the negotiations. Because of his expertise I was able to get my contract reworked which helped me in the long run. I will recommend him to all my clients who will need a service of an attorney. Will keep on using him for my own purpose as long as I need him.

All the ingrediants to reinvigorate my confidence that Great Lawyers still exist.
Mr. Agulnick has instilled a good taste in my mouth erasing the disdain I had for most if not all lawyers. He has a great bedside manner, does his homework,gets the task(s) done and guides you through the legal process in the most professional way. He has a capacity to make you feel that everything will truly be alright even through the most trying of circumstances. I have had numerous occasions and needs for his services all of which worked out for the better thanks to his knowledge and navigation through the judicial system. He tells it like it is and explains to you in great detail what needs to be done and how we can effectively get the desired results from any legal circumstance. I know I am always in good hands with Mr. Agulnick. I highly recommend his services to anyone I know.
