Awful service. Completely incompetent. Save yourself the aggravation by not using his service.

Delaying probate by incompetence. Inefficient processes and procedures. Moves slowly and ineffectively, creating undue stress on clients, and all parties involved, in order to pad his fees. My advice is to retain another lawyer who cares about moving the process smoothly and swiftly through probate in order to avoid frustration at every turn, like Sarah Smart of Bloom Lanys.

User's recommendation: Go elsewhere for wills and estates.

Unprofessional! Avoids clients and does not return calls

I hired Allan Socken to handle my will. Unfortunately it was poorly written and with most of my intentions left out. Upon trying to get a hold of Allan several times, I gave up. He did not return any of my phone calls or emails. I see why others are frustrated with him. I feel their frustration when a lawyer you hire refuses to listen to you and your needs.

Allan Socken Attempts to Contact Me

Socken Law - Allan Socken Attempts to Contact Me
I've just spoken to TPS Division 13 and they've advised me to make my intentions clear with the hopes that I would not be contacted again. After receiving a Facebook message from Kim Appotive Gale on behalf of Allan Socken last week, I felt violated and harassed. I don't feel comfortable talking with them as previous conversations led to lengthy battles. At the same time, I don't feel comfortable with them stalking me on Facebook and trying to catch me for extortion. I am trying to be a law abiding citizen. I have no intention of harassing anyone. I have no intention of making any contact with Allan Socken after my terrible experience with him as a lawyer. I just want to be left alone. Please respect my decision - I don't know why we need to rehash something that occurred 3 years ago. I hope I've made my intentions clear. Like I said, this message is not to harass anyone. It's to state that I don't appreciate any comments about my son and looking at my Facebook profile, especially when harassment was cited.

Discrimatory & Unprofessional Socken Law Practice

I first met Allan Socken, Principal of Socken Law, 5 years ago. I utilized him for representation on real estate deals as well as one traffic ticket. The first time I utilized him, I didn't understand his retainer policy. I put his name down as lawyer on file. Instead...

Clearly Mr Socken wants to resolve this matter. We are willing to resolve it with an apology and retraction of slander.
