Outstanding attorney!
Elliot Alford was referred to me by a close friend who had retained him for her divorce and custody battle. She was finally able to find some long overdue relief and justice when Elliot got involved; in fact, he was the first attorney that was able to make a difference in her case. I contacted Elliot and he quickly returned my call and reviewed my case. He's personable, responsive and highly competent. I enthusiastically recommend Elliot Alford to anyone that's looking for a compassionate, yet aggressive, attorney.

Awesome attorney!
Unfortunately, I have dealt with several family law attorneys. They don't really care about your individual situation and will charge for umpteen hours while truly spending 2 hours on your case before showing up in the courtroom. If he isn't in the court room he answers his phone every time, not a secretary but the guy you actually need on the phone. He helps you out before taking your money, which is unheard of and then only charges a fair amount. Great guy! Will use anytime I need an attorney for family situations.

Got the results I was hoping for
It was the month of Dec when I got a criminal speeding ticket out in AZ. I had called up several lawyers but was not getting the confidence I needed. Then I found Elliot Alford. He explained everything to me, using terms l could actually understand. He was really helpful and I saw a lot of confidence. He was very professional and answered of my questions. I decided to hire him thereafter. Time to start ! Elliot represented me . He did what he does(mails, documents, follow-ups, change of plea request ) and made sure that the criminal ticket got reduced to Civil and helped me to stay as a person without any criminal record.. The best part ..you can reach him anytime…email ,calls ..you will get a quick response. He did a good job in keeping me informed throughout the entire time. I highly recommend Elliot to any of you who are in need of a great lawyer!

Inmigration
To those of you who know Elliot Alford I would like to pass on to you some of the things he has helped me with. I am involved with helping immigrants with immigration issues as well as helping them with education programs here in northern Arizona. Elliot is bilingual and has been a great source of information for me. Elliot also consultes with individuals regarding personal immigration issues and volunteers a lot of his time regarding these issues .I want to thank him for his efforts in the community as well as his help is resolving questions regarding immigration for community members.

"It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles."
Elliot Alford is perhaps one of the most ethical and moral lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. It is my impression that he went into law to make positive changes in the world and to be able to help people. I sought out his services for a custody dispute, the issue was highly emotional and quite difficult. Elliot was very patient and kind, his level of professionalism never wavered. Elliot had the best interests of my daughter at the heart of every communication and legal action. He was highly knowledgable as well as a strong guiding force through the legal system. Elliot was extremely well prepared and highly efficient in his procedure of my case. With his counsel my daughter and I were not only protected as a result of these proceedings but also for possible future proceedings. Elliot’s dedication to my case and peaceful presence were truly a beacon of light through a dark time.

Accesible and Helpful attorney
I am truly grateful for the way that Elliot handled my divorce case, from beginning to end. He was efficient and trustworthy. He answered all of my questions honestly, and what was even more helpful, was that he spoke Spanish. I could have spoken to him in English, but he knew that I would better understand in my native language. An attorney that takes that extra initiative to communicate with a client is rare to find. Elliot also dedicated a great amount of time to the case, making it clear that he was invested. He has a professional carisma that I enjoyed. Overall, he was an honest attorney that always fought for the case, and won it. Thank you Elliot.
