We build homes, and perform other construction work. Elliot has provided legal services to us for almost 30 years. He handled negotiations with the owner for us to develop a 12 residential unit development (in Old City). He handled Mechanics Lien Claim and other Civil issues as well. Elliot was prompt, diligent, and cost effective. I would highly recommend him for legal services involving any Real Estate or Business matter (Contract, Transaction or Litigation related); without reservation.

Elliot tried and won a case for us involving an unpaid oral business loan. He needed to prove that loan was not an investment. Also, that a company, its owner and his ex-wife each owed the entire. Elliot pulled out all the stops, and presented the case just right to achieve maximum results. We have also used him for other matters. We found him to be fair, knowledgeable, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Olen to handle any business or civil business, or civil litigation matter

Elliot Mark Olen represented several healthcare and other businesses I was involved in as principal or consultant. He handled numerous transactional and contract matters including Ownership Agreements, Personnel Agreements, Loan Arrangements. He also handled area Litigation. The clients included accounting and physician practices, management companies, and numerous closely held businesses. He also acted as area counsel for a publicly held company that retrieved shipwrecks. Even when lawsuits arose, Elliot stepped in. On two critical occasions, Elliot helped prevented a Temporary Restraining Order/forestall a Preliminary Injunction attempt in two situations – on immediate notice (one in Texas, one in Montgomery County, Pa.). That was instrumental in allowing the clients time to adapt and counter.
I would highly recommend Elliot to handle any Business Matter, Consulting, Transactional, Contract or Litigation.”

My husband passed away suddenly in middle age. We had 3 school age daughters. I had little financial experience. Sadly, my husband’s death left me (among other things) with 2 major/legal related problems.
First, a country-wide bank wanted hundreds of thousands of dollars from me that I never borrowed! It was an obligation of my husband’s. I needed money to keep things going. I wanted to refinance my home, but could not because of the bank. I was unable to sell my home for the same reason. The rest of my husband’s Estate was tied up in a Real Estate holding company (see problem #2). The Executor of my husband’s Estate would not help. Elliot got him replaced, then filed a lawsuit on my behalf. He got the bank to accept a 1 year total deferred payment. Repayment was limited to a minor fraction of the amount borrowed.
Second, my late husband’s brother took control and possession of a large commercial property located in Philadelphia (owned by a company), half owned by my late husband’s Estate and his brother, by a Company my late husband and his brother co-owned. Again, the Executor of my husband’s Estate would not help. Over a year of negotiating and then winning a Trial totaling 4 years of fighting fully established my rights. The Estate got most of the proceeds and distributed it to me soon after Trial.
Elliot helped me through 4 difficult years & 2 Federal District Court and Philadelphia Commerce Court proceedings (plus Bucks County Orphans Court litigation to get rid of the unhelpful Executor). Elliot understood my dilemma, and worked to meet my financial constraints. He devoted great effort and enthusiasm to the cases, and got great outcomes.
I would highly recommend Elliot to handle any Estate/Orphans Court, Real Estate or Business related dispute.”
