Highly Recommended Attorney
I have worked with Elliot for a little over a year now. He has represented me in two court cases where I needed an attorney who is knowledgeable in family law issues. I am a victim of domestic violence and it was difficult to discuss my case with anyone let alone an attorney. Elliot was there for me right from the start in communicating with me through e-mail including weekends. He always answers your questions and is available in cases of an emergency. Elliot was the first attorney that I contacted and was truly satisfied from the moment I met him at his office. I have referred several individuals to his law firm and all have stated that he is a brilliant lawyer. He is now representing me in my divorce and I feel comfortable that my case will be handled professionally knowing that he will defending me throughout this process. He is a fair and trustworthy attorney who obtains the results that you need for your case.

Hardworking & caring
Elliot green is a knowledgeable and extremely caring attorney. From consultation to court proceedings he has never been anything but 100%. His knowledge of family law combined with his care and compassion about mine and my children’s well being is not something I expected in an attorney. He is available off hours when needed but has also just checked in to see how me and my family were doing. Highly recommend mr, green to not only get results but to make an extremely difficult situation more tolerable and has made me feel at ease through out this process

Highly recommended
I recommend Mr. Green. He is extremely hard-working and gets results. He has is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is well known in the courthouse, which sure doesn’t hurt. His office is conveniently located to the Brooklyn courts. He is results oriented and gets right to the point. He is highly communicative, which is something that cannot be said for many attorneys. Mr. Green will tell it like it is, even if it may not be what you want to hear sometimes, it is going to be the realistic assessment. Then he will fight to get the best results.

Reliable,caring, knowledgeable, prompt,excellent service!
Mr.Green has prompt and open communication ethics with his clients even off hours. He is knowledgeable in his field. On the night when my child and I got an order of protection from my spouse, Mr. Green even called to find out if we were safe. This shows that he cares for safety of his clients and the children. He works in collaboration with his clients, gives opinions and insights besides the legal advice/processes which is important when it comes to complex custody/visitations/divorce cases. I would highly recommend Mr. Green. Thank you for being by my side! A.D.

Great
Elliott pays attention to every detail. His responsiveness, sensitivity and professionalism skills are stellar. NYC has many lawyers, and he is truly a cut anice the rest. He will respond to emails and urgent situations, no matter what the hour. He always makes time to answer my questions with detail. Many lawyers are a lot of talk. Elliott gets things done. His ability to file important documents is phenomenal. Elliott works hard for those going through such a trying time in their lives, I am a first hand witness to this. He has a sensitivity and patience to families, no matter how unique or complex the situation may be. I highly recommend this lawyer. If you want someone who cares and will go the extra mile for you, then you are in the right hands!

Excellent divorce lawyer
Elliot has been my divorce lawyer since 1989. During that time, he has guided me through many stressful and emotional situations. He has been a tremendous support to me both professionally well as personally throughout my divorce. I want to thank him for his legal expertise as well as his compassion and understanding during this very lengthy and harrowing divorce, which ultimately resulted in a victory for us both. I would highly recommend to anyone needing an outstanding divorce lawyer

Custody
Elliot Green has been my lawyer for over a year now and all I can say is that I am highly satisfied with my experience so far. His free consultation meant free and informative ! I was extremely upset when I called him and he was able to calm me down , hear me out and explain everything thoroughly to me. Elliot’s communication skills are also very on point which is important. He always keeps you informed on your case ,answers any questions , always texts back and calls back within a couple of hours ( Even on a Sunday evening) ! He is definitely a great and caring attorney who prioritizes his clients needs first . I would not hesitate to recommend Elliot to any body!

Remote case
During my first phone consultation with Elliot, he listened carefully to my concerns and shared good feedback on his process as well as a transparent fee structure. Throughout my case, he has been very responsive to email/phone calls and diligent about following up on extra asks from the court. This is important to me due to Covid-19 delays and the fact that I have since moved to a different state.

Guardian Angel
With Elliot on my side, it feels like I have a guardian angel. He is always fighting for your child’s best interest and is beyond fair and reasonably priced. Elliot has a knack for negotiating and really puts you at ease no matter how tense things can get.

Entrepreneur
An excellent attorney that is reachable and responds in a timely fashion to emails. He’s well respected and connected in the Brooklyn Family Court System. He has a familiarity with fellow attorneys and majority of the magistrates that will oversee your case. I’ve recommended him previously to people who need the services of an experienced and knowledgeable family court attorney.
