Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

  • 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. ”

  • 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.”
