This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspended means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

I hired Mr. Falk in 2010 to handle my divorce. I paid him the agreed upon fee and an additional $1000. It is now 2015 and I am still not divorce. The only time we had regular contact was when he was anticipating payment. I requested regular itemized billing summaries and did not receive them. I, like other reviewers, often had to call from another number to speak to Mr. Falk. I have filed a grievance with the NYS Bar and would recommend other clients do the same. This man should not be practicing law.

Sounded promising until he got the retainer check. He did a consent to change attorney and after that, months went by and I was unable to get in contact with him. I had to call from a restricted phone number to get him to answer the phone. He still did nothing so I had to pay another attorney to try to get in touch with him which he also was unable to get ahold of him as he didn't respond to a letter the new attorney sent him. I ended up having to file a grievance and eventually was awarded all of my money back. Unfortunately much valuable time had passed by and it's been a year since I hired him and I still have not received my money back!

I hired Mr Falk to represent me for a case and he was very unprofessional and did nothing to help my case. Would have been better representing myself!
