Honest, upfront, did not try to nickel and dime
October 23, 2018
Words cannot express how grateful my family and I are for Mr. Doktofsky. Finding an attorney you can trust is difficult, finding an attorney you can trust from the other end of the country is almost impossible. But we found Mr. Doktofsky. He was honest, upfront, did not try to nickel and dime us each step of the way; and he got the job done! We are finally able to move on with our lives because of him.
Completely put my mind at ease
May 29, 2018
I highly recommend Andrew Doktofsky. I needed advice from an attorney. Could not get an answer from my own (who happened to also be a friend) so I turned to google and found Mr. Doktofsky. He took time, out of his day to personally write back to every email question I had. Never asking for compensation. He completely put my mind at ease through emails! Once an appointment was made, he took his time and explained everything in layman’s terms, not attorney 101. I highly recommend Mr. Doktofsky, he is a pleasure to speak with, considerate and kind.

Driven by Compassion
November 4, 2016
There are times in life when we are faced with what we feel are insurmountable trials and tribulations. It is during these times that faith brings us a ray of hope…..
Andrew Doktofsky helped me get through a very difficult period in my life for which I will always be grateful. Some people love what they do for a living. Some people find satisfaction in helping those in need. Some people are driven by compassion and not greed.
Some people go the extra mile…
Mr. Doktofsky truly listened to what I had to say and never rushed me. He promptly returned my phone calls. He was often available after hours. He offered solutions but did not impose them on me. When confronted with a unique and difficult issue, Mr. Doktofsky was never too prideful to admit not having an answer. Instead, he took to the books and immediately began researching the law for a viable solution. He always acted professionally and with integrity.
Andrew – thank you for everything you did for me. It is because of your continual, generous help that I am finally in a better place.

My wife and I had a very complicated debt collection case. Mr. Doktofsky was able to resolve by stipulation on terms favorable to us while other lawyers couldn’t find a solution. He is very professional, very kind, patient and understanding. We would recommend him very highly for anyone who is seeking this type of help.
Took the Time to Answer All Our Questions

My husband and I were very satisfied with the services provided by attorney Andrew M. Doktofsky. He was successful in having an automatic stay terminated so we were able to continue the eviction process to remove the tenants residing in our house and regain use of our property.
All of our phone calls and emails were returned promptly. Andrew took the time to answer all our questions and explain in detail how he would proceed so we had a good understanding how the process worked and what the time frame would be.
His fee was reasonable and what he originally quoted to us on our first visit. We weren’t charged anything extra or unexpected. We would highly recommend his services and would use Andrew again in the future should the need arise.

Believe it all

Andrew took me through a bankruptcy smoothly and patiently and was always responsive to my calls and questions. Like anyone who goes through this, it can be overwhelming. Andrew explained the entire process and allayed many of my fears.
I consulted with other “powerhouse” firms, who charged quite a bit more and made you feel like you were on an assembly line. If I ever had any other legal trouble whatsoever, he would be my first call. You won’t do better.

Andrew M. Doktofsky – not your basic attorney
September 6, 2015
I’ve dealt with lawyers most of my adult life, and for the record let me state (I don’t like them!). If you are looking for a lawyer with morals, scruples, a straight shooter who has your best interest in mind, you will most likely NOT find it in a lawyer.
Having said all of the above, I set out trying to find help vacating a judgment against me. I spoke with just about every lawyer on Long Island and most were impatient, rude, or nonresponsive until I read an article Andrew had written on a similar case as mine, clear, concise, and factual, with no bs.
I’m not an intellectual by any means. I’m a hard working individual with just a high school diploma (GED) and when I finally went to see Andrew, I found he was a retired law enforcement officer who had also worked hard all his life, with a sense of justice, compassion, empathy and very humble personality ………… (NOT YOUR BASIC LAWYER)
I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in my life, but hiring Andrew was not one of them – in fact, it was probably the best decision I’ve ever made.
Andrew won my case! But even if we had lost, I would have still felt the same. I’m deeply indebted to Andrew for his help and understanding. I would not hesitate to hire him again, or ask for assistance in any other matter where the law is concerned. Thank you, Andrew.
Made my life less stressful
April 28, 2014
I would like to thank you for affording me a reasonable and well thought out plan in dealing with my debt. You have made my life less stressful and anxiety filled by being there for me every step of the way. You always followed through and answered all my questions. Whenever I called, you picked up immediately if available, or returned my call in a very timely fashion. You always took your time with me. Thank you again for helping me put my life in order.
Responsive, professional, and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney
February 27, 2014
I hired Mr. Doktofsky to help me with my Ch. 7 bankruptcy case. I just had a negative experience with a well-known local bankruptcy law firm, and I wanted to hire a different attorney; one who would actually return my calls and respond to my questions.
Not only was Mr. Doktofsky very responsive, he listened to what I had to say, taking all factors into consideration. He then provided thoughtful, sound and relevant advice. He even called me the day before the meeting of the creditors as a courtesy.
Needless to say, the meeting went smoothly, and I believe this can be attributable, in part, to his thoroughness and knowledgeable advice. He is respectful and professional, and I would recommend him without reservation. He helped alleviate much of my stress during a very difficult time in my life.
