To provide some context, we ran into a situation back in the beginning of spring of '14 where we had worked with a public adjuster and restoration company to take care of some minor damage from a roof leak.
Long story short, the public adjuster ran off with what my insurance company paid out for the restoration services. After a lot of back and forth (almost 2 yrs), we could no longer contact the adjuster -- and neither could the restoration company. Unfortunately, the restoration company then started going after us for a significant amount owed to them. To add to the stress, we just recently welcomed our second child to our family, so needless to say, this bill was unexpected and certainly led to an extremely stressful time. Thankfully, my aunt recommended that we seek the guidance of Elliot as she had used him previously.
As soon as we connected with Elliot, he immediately started familiarizing himself with our situation and laid out a course of action. Unlike some other professionals -- whether it be another lawyer, doctor, etc. -- we didn't feel like just a number to Elliot. He really took the time to listen and understand our situation and by knowing that, he really helped alleviate some of our worries.
Once ready, he then began mediating conversations between the restoration company and ourselves. This eventually lead to him negotiating on our behalf and taking any worry out of our hands.
When all was said and done, he helped negotiate something that was fair for both parties, so it would still provide money for the restoration company's services as well as greatly reduce the financial burden this would have had on our family at the time.
So Would I recommend Elliot? Of course. 100% yes. He has helped out my family twice over the past few years and like I mentioned above, he was truly invested in our situation. My wife and I can't thank him enough for what he's done for us.

Elliot did an excellent job helping to negotiate a lawsuit for us. We were sued for money that we thought was paid to a company by our public adjuster. Elliot was able to walk us through the appropriate steps to take and helped us negotiate with the company. Elliot was very assuring and easy to contact. He constantly kept us informed and we are very confident in his expertise. We highly recommend Elliot.

Elliot did an excellent job handling a case when our mother passed away. Several other lawyers told us there was nothing they could do since our mother was so old when she passed away. Elliot understood that eventhough I other had serious health issues she deserved better treatment than she received.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Elliot for over a decade and have worked with him on numerous matters spanning the legal spectrum. In my opinion he is one of the finest attorneys due to his ability to listen not just hear what people are trying to discuss. This is cannot be taught and he excels at one of the most important areas of our profession.
