Only the best!
I contacted Harry Ellman on the advice of a friend and I'm so glad I did. It was regarding a contractual matter that no other attorney could resolve and he had his plan of action mapped out and implemented before our conversation was over. And when the clerk of the court tells me "your attorney did a great job is on top if things", how great is that. He is diligent yet compassionate. I'd recommend Harry Ellman to everyone.

A very capable attorney
Mr. Ellman is a very capable, results-oriented attorney. I hired him to assist my mother, who had been the victim of several fraudulent transactions. He used his considerable experience and real estate acumen to obtain a repayment commitment secured by liens on several properties. He was responsive, energetic and personable in handling the matter, and I would gladly retain him for additional work.

Thanks, Sylvia. It is so sad that some people take advantage of the elderly. Luckily this defrauder had sufficient assets to cover the potential loss. I trust your mother will be made whole financially. Thanks for the nice review.
