"[C]ounsel Press... is better than the "good hands people" at Allstate. CP never lets you down, and I mean NEVER! They are the Gold Standard..."

Dear Mr. Ehrlich, Today I won my appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. Naturally, you and Counsel Press handled all aspects of the appeal, beginning with the adverse decision at the District Court - until the very last evening before the oral argument - including every aspect of bringing an appeal! You are like a more experienced uncle in the business than a businessman. You were always standing by with invaluable help, tips and advice. I have been using you and Counsel Press for over 25 years, and your services are more seamless and more helpful every appeal. Your staff people, on this appeal Marianna Iannotta, are so competent, assiduous and a pleasure to work with. For anyone bringing an appeal, I can give them simple advice based on my twenty five years of experience with you: You are making a mistake if you use anyone except Michael Ehrlich at Counsel Press! Thanks, Mike!

David S. Friedberg, Esq.
New York, NY says:

Dear Michael: We have known each other for at least twenty years. You have always been a source to whom I will seek advice whenever I contemplate an appeal. Counsel Press has been graced by your wise counsel. The hours of the day do not constrain your responsiveness to my calls, or personal visits. I have spoken with you evenings as well as during the day time hours. You have been generous with your time. I am always impressed by your insightful mind, your knowledge of substantive law, and your wisdom and knowledge of the intricacies of appellate practice. You have been for me “Counsel Press”. Sincerely, DAVID

Mr. Ehrlich, I can't thank you enough for your insight and guidance. I couldn't have won this appeal without you! I have another appeal coming shortly, and will definitely be calling upon you for your services. Thank you again.

There is no one better in this business than Mike Ehrlich. I rely on him exclusively for all my appellate needs. I would never consider switching away from Counsel Press.

Peter Riggs, Partner,

White Plains, NY says:

As the appellate partner at my firm, I've worked with Michael Ehrlich for many years, and have always found him to be an invaluable guide to what current practice requires.

Martin Clearwater & Bell
New York, NY says:

In the 10+ years I have been working with him, I have consistently found Mike Ehrlich to be highly knowledgeable about all aspects of appellate procedure. His skilled assistance is invaluable.

Helen M. Benzie, Partner,
Bigham Englar Jones & Houston
New York, NY says:

Working with Mike Ehrlich and his colleagues at Counsel Press makes navigating the shoals of the appellate process in state and federal courts seem effortless. His encyclopedic knowledge of the appellate rules and what would be appropriate in the interstices between them plus his calm, confident, sagacious manner free the attorney to concentrate on the substantive legal issues. A long list of successful appeals is the result.

Anne Patrice Richter, Partner,
McManus, Collura & Richter, P.C.
New York, NY says:

I have worked with Counsel Press for over a decade and the service provided by the company is exemplary. In particular, Mike Ehrlich has provided assistance far beyond what one would expect from a similar company. We have had occasion to use other companies and have found that they lack the personal attention and procedural knowledge that Counsel Press provides.

Jonathan T. Uejio, Partner,
Conway, Farrell, Curtin & Kelly, P.C.
New York, NY says:

Over the past dozen years, I have worked with Mike Ehrlich on over 100 appeals. He has provided a level of service unsurpassed by any other printer with whom I have worked. He has also been a font of knowledge about not only the published rules of New York's appellate courts, but perhaps more importantly, their de facto practices, gleaned from years of experience. In such matters, his timely advice has proven accurate year after year.
