I have benefitted from his advice/work since the 1980's
Tom has always been available to talk about an issue and is prompt to return calls. He is thorough, points out issues that need clarification, completes work in a very timely manner and is a truly nice person. He has handled multiple real estate transactions and a will preparation for me.

The right person for the job
Atty Tom Elliott has worked with me over the last 18 years. Being in the building business I had the need for someone I could count on and was knowledgeable in real estate. Mr. Elliott has worked with me numerous times, mostly in the area of settlements, agreements, land use issues, development planning and zoning matters, all with good results. Atty Elliott has always shown his desire to solve my problems so I could move forward. His approach to sit down with me, describe the siituation, explain the plan or options and allow me to make an informed intelligent decision is important. I'm impressed with the professionalism and conduct of him and his staff. In 1990 Atty Elliott was responsible for getting my first development plan approved, { he was highly recomended to me by another atty }and he has brought about positive results on issues for me since then. This is the reason I kept asking for expertise. There is a group of lawyers out there that give lawyers a good name, I find Tom Elliott at the top.

Outstaning legal advice and representation
Tom has advised or represented me on several issues and did an outstanding job on all of them. He is knowledgeable, informative and insightful, with a strong sense of professionalism and ethics. He has been willing to provide informal legal advice when that was appropriate, in addition to representing me in real estate transactions and preparation of a will. He is a pleasure to work with and ALWAYS accurately represents my interests.

New Jersey Estate Executor Probate Problem Solved by Tom Elliott on Time and Under Budget
Mr. Elliott was retained to assist in the satisfaction of a New Jersey will which included a Pennsylvania property for allocation to three heirs. My experience was extremely positive and professional. Beyond his knowledge of Pennsylvania law , his process provided timely feedback for program coordination which, importantly, served to expedite the overall program. It was a pleasure doing business with his he and his staff.

Thomas R. Elliott, Jr.
I was a client of Mr. Elliott for nine years. During that time I would have professional contact with Mr. Elliott several times a month. Tom exhibited his knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail in a variety of legal areas with specific emphasis on Municipal Law, Land Use/Zoning, and litigation. He was intuitive as to the needs and desires of his clients. It is good to see Attorney Elliott returning from his brief personal sabbatical.
