I rarely write testimonials but feel I must on behalf of Deanna Ebele and Kirrelle Freeman, my attorney and case manager at Vincent Russo Associates, Garden City, New York.
I can, in good conscience, recommend either or both and must thank Kirrelle for the hours she has spent on the phone with me. For her compassion and kindness, her ability to listen, her unbelievable memory and her attention to detail..and for knowing when she does not know the answer and getting the answer from Deanna and for knowing when I need the answer from Deanna directly..
I have found Deanna to be kind, patient and with an incredible knowledge of elder law and estate planning. She recommends things that are necessary and does not try to sell things that are not. I, at first, had some hesitancy about working with an attorney probably 30 years my junior, feeling that she might not be able to empathize with the problems of a person of my age with such a mentally and physically ill spouse. I found that I have had nothing to worry about and that she has my back..and somehow can understand.
Both Kirrelle and Deanna get back to me quickly, with Deanna even calling me when she is out of the office..Both call when they say they are going to call and DO what they say they are going to do.

Joanna Perez is the best. We could not have gotten through the process without her and Vincent. Joanna returns emails and phone calls promptly. She is on top of her field. She is delightful to work with. I am a lawyer myself and I know the benefits of being represented by the best.

After having a very bad situation with our uncle and his previous attorney, working with Deanna and Cathy was a godsend. They were very professional and passionate about their work. It was very clear who the client was (uncle) and his best interests were top priority. Deanna and Cathy were very responsive to everyone's needs. They made a very bad situation a positive one for my uncle and everyone involved. A sincere thank you. P.S. Rosana was also awesome too!

Working with the Russo Law Group is a pleasure. The treatment of my Uncle and the patience to explain the situation was second to none. Cathy and Deanna were professional and understanding. I would recommend working with them to anybody.

I am passing along a recommendation of using the Russo Law Group as my Trust, Will, Living Will and Health Care Proxy were taken care of with much knowledge and expertise. These important documents are not so pleasant a task as ones mortality must be addressed. My lawyer, Deanna Eble, put me at such ease over my worry of losing my NYC exemptions on my property bill as she asured me they will fight for my rights if the City wanted to take away any of them. The drafts of these documents were explained to me and had time to go over them. The signing with witnesses was done very properly and I was given a handsome file system in which to conain all documents easily. I thank all of the Russo Law Group who helped and assisted me.

I have had the pleasure of working with Deanna Eble and her team for several years for Elder Law, Estate Planning and Medicaid Planning. Deanna has consistently demonstrated outstanding technical expertise combined with excellent judgment with a caring and compassionate demeanor. The team is an excellent resource for elders and their families. Not only are they extremely talented legal advocates, but they also put their hearts into their work. I have appreciated their compassion and guidance with all issues. Deanna has provided to myself and my family the information we needed to make informed decisions. All of the team have been wonderful and I greatly appreciate their patience and support. I have and will continue to recommend Russo Law Group.

My husband and I were in need of an attorney to set up health care and estate planning. An associate of my husband's recommended Russo Law Group located in Garden City, New York. They had helped him several years before with his elderly mother's estate. His recommendation proved to be invaluable. The attorney, Deanna Eble, who handled our affairs was knowledgable, professional and extremely easy to communicate with. Deanna's case manager, Cathy Evans, was extremely well-informed, accessible and responsive and came across as a person who sincerely enjoys helping other people. Thanks, Deanna and Cathy!

Thank you for running the seminars at St. Francis for us. You helped many people in a way they could understand and feel comfortable asking questions. I know I learned some things from you and know others told me they also learned things, have a better understanding of what to do and were impressed and grateful for your presentation.
Thank you for coming to our parish. I have already spoken to my pastor and let him know that your seminars were excellent and well received.
