Mr. Elliot was spectacular
Mr. Elliot was spectacular as my lawyer. He was competent, friendly and the voice of reason during my divorce. Tom was clear and concise in explaining the law to me, was always there when I called or needed him and he seemed to really care about my case. Tom talked me off the ledge a couple of times, and I really appreciated that. very thorough in breaking things down so that even a simpleton like me understood what was going on! I truly appreciate Tom's work and I thank him for his time and work. I would recommend Tom and the Joseph Law Group 8 days a week!

Thomas Elliot, a good divorce lawyer
I had a firm prior to Mr. Elliot, who was inexperienced and not competent. On the other hand, Tom was easy to work with. He made the whole divorce process simple. As a male in NYS, he was able to secure an agreement in which I received money from my female spouse.

Wonderful Divorce Attorney
I was referred to Tom Elliot in 2015. I had just moved back home to NY from CA and was dealing with an alcoholichusband. Sadly, I realized it was time to consult with someone to help me navigate a separation and potential divorce. Tom was a blessing. In addition to being a very smart and capable attorney, he was caring, compassionate and patient. Separating and divorcing was a struggle to come to terms with, Tom was always patient and understanding of my feelings. I never left a meeting feeling overwhelmed, but always felt I was in good hands. Tom helped me each step of the way as I weighed my options. I would highly recommend him.

Fantastic Job
Tom did a fantastic job handling our family court case. We had the misfortune of being subjected to the New York State Family Court process in the past and our former lawyer could never seem to get a favorable outcome. Tom changed that and handled our current case professionally and swiftly. His demeanor in and out of court was tremendous. I truly believe if we had used him initially, we would have saved a lot of money, time and aggravation. We absolutely recommend his services.

Integrity and Wisdom
I highly recommend Thomas. He is very smart, patient, resourceful and kind. There is nothing about a divorce process that is pleasant. With Tom’s representation, I felt always in good hands. You will too.

A Tranquil Captain during Stormy Seas
I recently was represented by Mr. Elliot. His entire firm is a class act, and they answer and return calls with great professionalism. Tom was a realistic voice during an emotional process, where the law is not always based upon logic and realities of today's world. He will tell you what works and what doesn't, and will help guide you to a resolution that you can live with. Someone once said, a good deal is when both sides leave the table unhappy. That's is divorce by it's nature. But you can at least have someone in your corner who knows the ropes and can advocate where there is room for advocacy. (He also knows when to call BS on the other side lol). I don't plan on getting married and divorced again, but if I do, I will call Tom again :-).

Divorce handled with care
I hired Tom to handle a divorce that I didn't want. He was exceptionally patient with me and "held my hand" through this difficult period. Legally, he always had my best interests in mind and kept me continuously aware of every step of the divorce. I have already recommended Tom to others. Tom and the entire staff were exceptionally caring, understanding and available to me. They made this horrible situation tolerable.

Could Not Have Been Better
I had interviewed several attorneys before choosing to use the Joseph Law Group to represent me in my divorce. Thomas Elliot was the attorney assigned to my case and I couldn't have been in better hands. His knowledge of the ever-changing matrimonial laws is extensive, and he was always willing to take the time to clearly explain them to me. He guided me through the process with a gentle and supportive hand, but was firm in his standings during negotiations and it court. My divorce was settled in a timely manner and we were able to come to a fair agreement.

Professionalism at its Best
I met with Tom Elliot, who was referred to by a close friend of my employer at the time, looking for an attorney to help me settle with an extremely difficult ex-spouse. As soon as I met Tom, I knew I had the right person. He was professional, knowledgeable, and most of all, practical minded and comforting with the concerns I had. He is a straight shooter - he's going to call it as he sees it and not look drag things out. Although I did not have a terribly complicated case, Tom and his staff made me feel at ease because they were pro active and were always on top of things. Tom was thorough and efficient with opposing counsel and the case went as smooth as it possibly could. Subsequent to my case, Tom is always available to assist with any questions or issues I may have. I have recommended him to a few friends who are in similar situations that I was in and will continue to do so. Tom is a true professional and I will continue to utilize his services and refer him.

Only good things
Mr. Elliot is professional, knowledgeable, and courteous, as well as an all around pleasant person to deal with. Our outcome was more than favorable and he worked extremely hard to help me in any way possible and kept me informed every step of the way.
