Howard Serbin, Probate Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. He is an outstanding litigator. I have had the pleasure of observing substantial parts of three of his trials. He is astute at questioning witnesses, and he has mastered trial procedure. His exhibit books and his organization are truly impressive--if a witness contradicts his deposition, Mr. Ulitimo will always catch him on it. Not surprsingly, he won all three cases I observed. You will be in excellent hands with him as your attorney.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Private reproval, public disclosure means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
