From the time I walked in I realized I had found the right attorneys for me.

Bill from Saddle River

Shelley and her team got me my child back from a non-Hague country. She was there at the worse time in my life for tears on her shoulder and there in the best time in my life when she hugged my daughter as she got off of the plane.

M.M. New York

Ron knew the value of my case, when to fight, what to say and how to say it. He got me ten times more then I thought I would receive.

Juan from Hackensack

Patrick and I went to trial on my matter. Only on T.V. have I ever seen someone with as much command of the courtroom, respect of the Judge, and the ability to get through to the Jury.

Happy Customer

Marilyn is the best Family attorney in the State. That is all you need to know.

Steve from Verona

I never felt like a commodity. I was part of the team.

Mercedes from Jersey City

Pat settled my case and I was set for the rest of my life.

A.R. Hackensack

I was facing the best years of my life incarcerated. Shelley was there for me and my family the entire time. When we got a not-guilty verdict and I told her “you did it,” Shelley shot back with a “WE DID IT !”

Joe from New York

Don’t be taken back by Amanda’s youth. She has the wisdom of George Washington and the wit of George Carlin.

Robert – Paramus

The best thing I can say about Paul is beware the quiet ones. His knowledge of the law outwits all of his adversaries.

Jamie from Montclair
I would like to thank you for your superior and knowledgeable service. This was my first time being in a traffic incident of any type. Your pleasant, polite and reassuring voice really put me at ease.
