What do you look for in a lawyer?

  • Integrity
  • Competence
  • Responsiveness

When you hire The Law Offices of Elliott Abrams, you are hiring me. I will personally attend to all aspects of your legal matter and will not pass you off to a junior associate or to a paralegal. If your matter is outside my areas of practice, I will refer you to a lawyer with the necessary expertise. 

Your calls and emails will be promptly returned and you will always be kept fully apprised of the status of your matter. Clients have described me as "personable, approachable, efficient and reliable" and I am committed to providing service with diligence and integrity. Having practiced law for over 35 years, I will provide legal counsel that is objective and realistic. 

I have been practicing law since 1980 and specialize in the areas of Estate Planning, Probate, Trusts and General Business matters. I frequently lecture in these areas to other attorneys, trade groups and the general public. I regularly attend continuing education courses to keep my skills honed and my knowledge current.  

Lastly and most importantly, I am fair and honest and place your interests ahead of my own. My billing is clear and straightforward.  Most matters are handled on a flat fee basis which you will know in advance of work being performed. On matters that are billed on a hourly basis, we will mutually agree in advance of the specific terms under which I will be working for you and you will be kept apprised of the fees on a monthly basis. 

On a personal level, I maintain a very active life outside the practice of law. I have been married for 40 years and have two adult children. My outside interests include ice hockey, tennis, skiing, backpacking, woodworking, travel, and whitewater rafting. I was named a Super Lawyer in Estate Planning and Probate in 2020 and 2005.
