Professional, Caring and Honest attorney I ever known.
Mr. Pashkin help me with my debt problem and deceitful practices from a debt collector who had a bad history of taking people to court with fraudulent claims. Mr. Pashkin was honest very patient and understanding to my situation. When everyone turn their backs on me. Mr. Pashkin took me serious and took my case and resolve it. He answer the phone. He emails you. He doesn't ignore you no matter how busy he is. He fights for you and I will keep him as my personal attorney and will refer him to anyone seeking debt collection help. He will be my first attorney of choice. I will always keep him close to my heart due to the fact that he took me out of credit nightmare and treated me with the most respect. I am very grateful.
PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY AND HIGH QUALITY SERVICE
I was referred to Mitchell by another lawyer in NYC and it was the best thing that they could have done. Mitchell contacted me immediately after the referral, we had a conversation and took it from there. He worked on my case for a YEAR and was very professional and friendly especially since we had never met and all transactions were either done over the phone but more via e-mail. He kept me updated and was very responsive to my questions in a timely manner. He also kept my job abreast of any information they needed and kept me from paying $4000 for a debt a collection agency from OVER 15yrs ago. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a debt lawyer, you won't go wrong. I think it is important that we know our rights and we don't have to give in to these collection agencies.Thanks again Mitchell for your time, effort and support through this trying time.
Excellent Service and Very Resonable
I have used Mitchell Pashkin twice to vacate a judgement. He was successful both times and his rate was very reasonable. He was responsive each step of the way..I recommend and would not hesitate to use him again.
Professional and honest service
When I contacted Mitchell Pashkin, I was a little apprehensive and worried that my hard earned dollars were going to be spent without satisfaction. We needed help combating a collection agency that was trying to illicit funds through the courts and we needed help. I was extremely happy with the communication and honesty of Mr. Pashkin and we got the results we were hoping for.The case was dismisssed in our favor.He is an honest and sincere attorney and I would recommend him to anyone that needs help in the future. The case is still proceeding due to Mr Pashkins passion and determination to see that these type of agencies stop pursuing consumers with illegal actions. They must be stopped from treating hard working people like ourselves from being wronged in civil cases in the future.
