What Clients Say About Attorney Ronald S. Pohl

People facing a wide array of financially and personally significant legal challenges come to the Pohl Law Group in Manhattan based on our reputation and often via referrals from other lawyers and professional associates. Not everyone who achieves a positive outcome expresses their appreciation in writing, but when they do, their insights are telling.

We invite you to consider these summaries of how Ron Pohl has taken care of clients and rewarded their trust.

Dedicated, intelligent, tough, professional, and someone you want in your corner

My mother’s estate was severely mismanaged by a greedy executor and it was clearly necessary to find legal help. Ron Pohl had excellent credentials as an attorney and a CPA. He also had a stellar reputation as an ethical attorney. I contacted him and he agreed to take my case. This was the best decision I ever made.

Ron worked very hard to achieve the best possible outcome. He was honest with me every step of the way. He cares about the people he helps. Genuinely cares. And he went above and beyond in taking calls and answering emails, often outside business hours.

Ron is dedicated, intelligent, tough, professional, and someone you want in your corner.

When it seemed litigation was necessary, he lined up a heavy hitter to bring on the team. Due to Ron’s skill, we managed at the last hour to obtain an excellent settlement agreement. This would NOT have been possible with anyone less dedicated or less ethical.

You could go elsewhere. But you won’t find anyone better than Ron.

What can I say about Ron Pohl?

I can understand why Ron is voted as one of the top attorneys in NYC every year. Ron is probably the most ethical, compassionate, caring, savvy attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Ron, aggressively, while maintaining the utmost professionalism protected my living trust interests and kept me informed of all legal proceedings in the timeliest manner. Ron protected my trust interests from a particularly, unscrupulous trustee and an equally unprofessional attorney who casted vicious and untrue personal attacks against me.

Ron successfully navigated a particularly poorly crafted trust to my ultimate satisfaction. I highly recommend Ron Pohl for all your trust needs.

Best regards,

The Estate Dragged On For Ten Years

“I met Ron Pohl over twenty years ago. My father, a self-made man, made the mistake of making a bank as one of three executors on his estate. The estate dragged on for ten years so that the bank could collect exorbitant fees.

“Through a real estate lawyer, I met Ron Pohl. He set things in motion to settle the estate. His expertise as a CPA and estate lawyer, as well as his tenacity, his intelligence, his perseverance and his commitment to my family will never be forgotten.

In 1999, as residual beneficiaries of our parents’ estates, my sister and I each received half of the assets. Not content with half, my sister persisted with lawsuits from 1999-2014. Mr. Pohl was with me through it all. When litigation became necessary, he recommended a litigator, who like Mr. Pohl, was dedicated and had his clients’ interests at heart. The resolution, through the tenacity and expertise of both, came to a successful conclusion on my part. Thank you, Ron Pohl, for coming into my life.” — Irene P.


Strategic, Creative Resolution Of Estate Problems And Conflicts

“This is to express my sincere appreciation for your outstanding efforts in conjunction with the successful resolution of my dad’s estate. When I first came to you, we were in truly bad shape, having been misguided by a major law firm many times your size and having paid exorbitant fees for their poor counsel.

“In a very short time, you whipped this mess into shape and aggressively pursued a creative strategy that most attorneys would not have had the stomach to pursue. We all crossed our fingers and placed our confidence in you and, Voila! You did it. I want to express my gratitude and admiration for your intelligence, strength of conviction and patience in seeing this through to a successful conclusion.” — estate administration client Steven B.

Treating Each Case As If Our Own Interests Were On The Line

“I was fortunate to meet Ronald Pohl at a time in my life when my sibling was trying to deprive me of my inheritance. I believe that if I had been with another attorney, I would have ended up with a tiny percentage of what my father left to me.

“Ron is not only an expert in estates law, he is also a CPA, which enabled him to understand the company balance sheets I brought to him. Above all, he took my case on as if it were his own, fully engaging in difficult negotiations. When it became clear that we would have to litigate, he not only was honest with me about the possible outcomes, but he chose a talented and equally dedicated litigator. The three of us made a powerful team. Ron and the litigator developed an original and, as it turned out, winning strategy. The two attorneys never took a step without consulting me, treating me with respect and consideration.

I hope to never have this type of problem again. But if I do, I would go, actually run, to Ron Pohl, a great attorney.” — estate litigation client Jane F.


Efficient, Forthright Communication To Overcome Complex Challenges

“I was in need of an estates attorney to help with issues regarding the Last Will and Testament of my sister. My legal issues were 2,000 miles away, spanned two states (New York and New Jersey), and I had to deal with a slippery sort of fellow who represented my opponent.

” … Mr. Pohl proved to be just what I needed. He was able to work efficiently by phone and email so that I was able to avoid trips to NYC. He was knowledgeable and, most importantly, he was able to give me clear and detached advice. Needless to say, Mr. Pohl dealt with the other attorney, greatly reducing my stress level, and he achieved a resolution that was satisfactory to me.” — client Ron Q.


Guiding My Family To Victory

When my father died, and with my mother suffering from dementia, I was thrust into a terrible and traumatic situation, as I began to uncover wrongdoing by the nominated co-executor of my father’s Will. My father’s trusts and estates attorney – a partner in a major downtown NYC law firm – tried to convince me to “go along to get along,” so to speak, and to acquiesce to my father’s stated wishes. Instead, as a multi-year plot to take advantage of my elderly father began to unfold, I met Ron Pohl through my litigation attorney: they had teamed up for some 25+ years to represent beneficiaries of contested estates.

With tremendous effort and expertise, Ron was the perfect complement to my litigation attorney and, against all odds, was instrumental in guiding my family to victory over this outsider and his removal as nominated co-Executor. Since settling our case, Ron has helped save my family a tremendous amount of money – not just by billing at a considerably lower rate than our previous “fancy” (ineffective) trusts and estates attorney, but also by setting up trusts for my mother, my siblings and me, as well as the next generation, all to take advantage of current tax law. Ron, who is also a CPA, communicates and works well with our family accountants, and he’s helped with the conversion of our charitable foundation to a DAF, establishment of an LLC and more. I’ve learned that trusts and estate law is both “art and science,” and Ron’s depth of knowledge and experience combines with his personal values to result in excellent, reliable professional advice, delivered in a clear and concise voice.
