Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney. ”

  • Amazing Attorney

    “Elizabeth represented me in my divorce in 2014-2015. She was responsive, listened to my thoughts and concerns, advocated diligently for me, and was a straight shooter. Highly recommended.”

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

    Daniel

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!! ”

  • Extraordinary star lawyer; gets results for you and your child

    “Having been a legal professional for over 20 years with the top and largest law firms in NY, FL and DC., I can say, without reservation, Elizabeth is the caliber of attorney that rivals the best of the best. With only two hours to prepare for an emergent custody order to show cause hearing; Elizabeth was extremely knowledgeable of the applicable family laws and was very prepared to present the case for my son and the safety of his child. Elizabeth demonstrated the right temperament to present the facts of the case with such detail and eloquence without agitating the judge knowing exactly the exact points to drive home. A measure of a good attorney is that he/she is prepared and can communicate effectively to the judge without resorting to childish tactics or attacks against the opposing attorney or the other parent which Elizabeth embodies. Elizabeth was composed, experienced and tactful that is very hard to find in attorneys today. Finding a reliable, honest, and dedicated attorney is not an easy task. The process itself can be as tiresome, complicated, and confusing. Not surprising to me Elizabeth is poised to be rated one of the top divorce and custody lawyers in NJ/NYC and possibly the nation. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top notch family law attorney. ”
