Joe Defino is the most knowledgeable family law attorney that I have ever had the pleasure to represent me. He truly cares about your situation. His courtroom demeanor and presentation is phenomenal. His negotiating skills are second to none. If you are in need of a Divorce or Family Law Attorney, there is no one better !

I strongly recommend Frank LaRocca as a Family Law attorney (although I would and will hire him for any area in which he practices as needed) with the utmost integrity, intelligence, knowledge of the law, sharp instincts, ability to understand the complexities of a case and stay focused on what is most important. I put my trust and faith in him and he delivered on every level. He is strong and strategic and his balanced disposition keeps tensions from escalating and the process moving forward. His understanding and compassion went beyond the call of duty and I am forever grateful to him. Because of him, you can expect the best possible settlement in the shortest amount of time. Quite simply, I recommend hiring him without hesitation.

Frank LaRocca knows the law, and from start to finish, he demonstrated professionalism and compassion during one of the most challenging times of my life. What I appreciated most was his no-nonsense approach to my divorce, and he didn't waste my time or my money fighting battles that were never going to be won. He helped me get through the divorce process as quickly and as efficiently as possible, and his advice was always accurate and sound. Sometimes we don't always hear what we want to hear, but Frank tells you what you need to hear.

Frank LaRocca has been my attorney for a decade. Divorce is not an easy process and has many unexpected turns that can be frightening. When divorce was my only option and I referred to Mr. LaRocca office. Not knowing what to expect and honestly scared, his office made me right at ease. They assured me that they would be by my side the entire process and have been true to their word. They tried at first to mediate the process to save us both time, money and heartache. When that wasn’t possible they protected my rights and represented me in every way. They guided me not just through the divorce but gave me sound advice that has helped me personally! Though every mediation, hearing and court appearance, Frank LaRocca has represented me perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for any better representation. At times when I thought things were really bad Franks advice and help has been perfect. I don’t believe I would have had the outcome if I was represented by anyone else. If you find yourself facing a divorce situation or any family issues that require a Lawyer Frank LaRocca and his staff is who you want representing you.

“The best law firm around! Great service and fast!” I have known Frank LaRocca for over 25 years. His approach to law is pragmatic and always kept in its simplest terms. "When a situation seems bad, it's never as bad as it seems" I have been represented better than I could have ever imagined several times over the years getting me through a very messy break-up and ensuing custody battle. . Mine and my children's needs were put first and we were treated as friends rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Frank LaRocca fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thanks guys!!

Wonderful experience! My lead attorney and the whole team was so helpful. They kept me up to date with all proceedings and assisted me with questions I had. I never felt like just a "case", they got to know me and that much reduced my anxiety. I would strongly recommend the firm to anyone.

Rachel helped us through each step of what we needed, from the first call to our last, we were always kept in the loop and up to date. She is an incredible professional that helped our family and we'd gladly recommend her to anyone that will listen.

I found Weinberger Divorce and Family through a website search. Jennifer and team helped me make positive contact with my ex wife. We were able to work out a settlement that worked for us both. Thanks Jennifer and team for your help and advice. Dominick Catena

Nothing but wonderful things to say. I worked with Heather Martin and her team and would highly recommend her for all family support cases. She took time to educate me on my case and which avenues of approach would work best for my case. Stop looking for a family lawyer, you’ve found it!

Amy is the most unprofessional attorney that I have worked with. Furthermore, after she did not win her case she had her staff use fake email addresses to post negative reviews about my firm. I would strongly advise any potential client in need of legal services to look elsewhere. She comes off as someone that is on your side and when things do not go her way, look out. She forces her team to do unprofessional tasks in order to punish those who do not go along with her demands. She is unstable and an abrasive person.

I highly recommend Cores & Associates for your custody case. All of the staff are kind and courteous. Amy Cores is professional, knows the laws, took the time to explain all the steps of my case, and always made herself available anytime I had questions or needed her support on a matter.

Amy Cores took my alimony case with great professionalism and a very positive attitude. She explained every step of the way and was very sensitive to my needs. I highly recommend Cores & Associates.

Amy proved to be a very valuable partner in my international child custody case. She demonstrated great depth of expertise, was very responsive, always provided "on point" advice, and was able to connect me with the right attorney in another state, when the need arose. She played an important role in the successful resolution of my issue, and I highly recommend her.

They've been great to work with, would recommend to anyone facing a difficult family law issue.

Approximately two years ago, I began attorney shopping after I was told by my now ex-wife, that she wanted a divorce. I was betrayed, and trying to navigate through something that I have never experienced before. I did not want an attorney who would “throw wood into the fire,” heighten my emotions, make me overthink things, or entice me to take unnecessary actions out of anger or emotion. I had two meetings lined up, one being with Steve. I felt that Steve fit my personality very well, and we have since developed a solid relationship and understanding that goes beyond business. Steve was a calming presence, completely fair, honest, and accountable throughout the duration of the divorce process. Also, Steve has a sense of humor that I greatly appreciate. On top of that, Steve is a great writer, very thorough with his work, and a very clear communicator. Last but not least, Karen and Val are extremely pleasant to work with; always there to help and assist. If you want an attorney with straightforward integrity, conscientious with your money, and gives extremely honest viewpoints based on his 30 plus years of experience, Steve is the attorney for you. Thank you for all the guidance and assistance, Steve. It will never be forgotten.

Hands down, the best divorce attorney in New Jersey. Steve was always there when I needed something. He made sure that I didn’t get taken for a ride from the opposing attorney. He’s a lawyer you can count on and if you are in the unfortunate situation of getting divorced, he’s the man for the job. His staff is top notch. They are so fast in responding and getting paperwork done. I have ZERO complaints about Steve and his staff. Steve is a tough attorney, which is what you want and he will fight for you from day one. Steve and staff, thank you so much for all that you did for me and thank you for helping me move on with my life. I wish I could give more than 5 stars, you deserve it.

I was referred to Mr. Kaplan by another "super attorney" who was retiring. I am so glad he did. Mr. Kaplan is a very talented, hard working, professional, personal, and attentive attorney. Who also has a conscience. He always kept me informed of all changes and updated me on my matter in a very timely manner. He even worked an entire weekend once on a pressing issue. He is a very honest man and I believe his honesty is known throughout the Monmouth/Ocean county court system which gives him credibility with both judges and his peers. His staff always met my expectations and was also always on time. I give my highest recommendation for Steven J. Kaplan to anyone who has a family law matter.

Steven Kaplan is an outstanding divorce lawyer! He's focused, efficient and highly professional, with an expert knowledge of NJ matrimonial law. You will find lawyers who are cheaper no doubt, but you won't find any better than Steve. And as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. My only regret is that I didn't use him as my first divorce lawyer, instead of my second. And divorce is definitely one of those things that you want to get right the first time. If you have Steve Kaplan handle your divorce, you will not have any regrets.

Steve Kaplan recently guided me through my divorce. From beginning to end he was extremely thorough, honest, responsive, knowledgeable and familiar with NJ divorce law and the divorce process. Steve advised me and worked with me each step of the way, always knowing the specific details of my case. He made me feel like we were working together as a team to get to a positive end result. Also, his office team was very caring, responsive and always available to help me throughout my case. Divorce is not an easy process, but Steve and his team made it as comfortable as possible for me. I am grateful for everything Steve and his team did to assist me. Thanks to all of you at Kaplan Law Office!

I’d like to thank Goldstein law group for their highly professional service. My special Thanks to Francine. She was an amazing attorney. I was in deep grief after unsuccessful consent conference and then retained her as my attorney. She did the best. She is fantastic in drafting legal documents. She drafted exactly what I wanted and good negotiator too. My husband’s attorney was very tricky and try to corner me and doing things against me. The Defendant attorney wanted complicate matters. Francine guided me well. She helped and advised me with all pros and cons of the situation and assisted me even with any decision that I made and it’s consequences. She is very good at communicating with us. She forwards all correspondence and not hide anything. Another Thanks to Patti legal assistant, she was prompt. If you have complicated legal issues my best recommendation is the Goldstein Law group and Francine one of the best attorney for matrimonial and Divorce cases. Thank you so much Goldstein Law group and Francine Galante for resolving my case smoothly.

I retained Lisa from the Goldstein Law Group for a divorce matter. Having a very simple divorce case, with little to no assets Lisa played "dumb", knowing I was not aware of the process and stressed. Lisa suggesting only suggested actions that she knew would only prolong my divorce case to bill hours and not to the best of my interest. Process' were not clearly explained to me and firm was more interested in depleting my retainer, than my needs. The last $1,000 of my retainer seemed to "Vanish" with nothing to show for, and when asking for the documents she prepared with this I was ignored. Please save your money and hire an experienced attorney.

I highly recommend the Goldstein Law Group! Mark Goldstein and Francine Galante are experienced attorneys. For my divorce, I worked specifically with Francine and she is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, very thorough and detail oriented and has a tremendous amount experience in matrimonial dissolution cases. I think the thing that I appreciated most about working with Francine is how much share cares. She gives great advice, and helps calm things down when emotions are running high. She is fair. She is relentless in pushing and fighting for you, to ensure you get the best outcome. Highly recommend this law group!

I had a wonderful experience with the Goldstein Law Group and it’s team regarding a legal matter. Mark Goldstein was professional and courteous during every step of the way. Every telephone call and email message was responded to in a timely fashion. This was a difficult time in my life and I am truly happy that I retained the Goldstein Law Group to resolve my legal issue.

Attorney Hillary Brower of Goldstein Law Group is the epitome of zealous representation! I’ve been working with her since July of this year and she’s always gone above and beyond to ensure I was kept informed and up to date on the matter at hand. She will continue to be my go to attorney for any legal matter. She’s very knowledgeable and genuinely loves what she does. Her commitment to her clients has set the bar for me. I worked with a different attorney prior to retaining Ms. Brower and she was able to do more for me in two months than the attorney I hired prior did in 6 months. I definitely recommend hiring Goldstein Law Group for your legal needs. Goldstein Law Group recently relocated from 14 Woodward Drive, Old Bridge, NJ to 10 Amboy Ave, Metuchen, NJ.

For my divorce, I worked specifically with Francine and she is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, very thorough and detail oriented and has a tremendous amount experience in matrimonial dissolution cases. I think the thing that I appreciated most about working with Francine is how much share cares. She gives great advice, and helps calm things down when emotions are running high. She is fair. She is relentless in pushing and fighting for you, to ensure you get the best outcome. Highly recommend this law group!

    I had a wonderful experience with the Goldstein Law Group and it’s team regarding a legal matter. Mark Goldstein was professional and courteous during every step of the way. Every telephone call and email message was responded to in a timely fashion. This was a difficult time in my life and I am truly happy that I retained the Goldstein Law Group to resolve my legal issue.

    Attorney Hillary Brower of Goldstein Law Group is the epitome of zealous representation! I’ve been working with her since July of this year and she’s always gone above and beyond to ensure I was kept informed and up to date on the matter at hand. She will continue to be my go to attorney for any legal matter. She’s very knowledgeable and genuinely loves what she does. Her commitment to her clients has set the bar for me. I worked with a different attorney prior to retaining Ms. Brower and she was able to do more for me in two months than the attorney I hired prior did in 6 months. I definitely recommend hiring Goldstein Law Group for your legal needs. Goldstein Law Group recently relocated from 14 Woodward Drive, Old Bridge, NJ to 10 Amboy Ave, Metuchen, NJ.

Words cannot explain how thankful I am to Linda and her staff! My divorce was a nightmare and they were with me through the entire journey. They are professional, organized and honest. Always returned my calls and emails quickly. Even through the pandemic, they remained prompt and organized. I would highly recommend them.

In 2019 we were ordered to seek out a mediator, we agreed upon Linda piff to discuss a very specific court order. I had provided a copy directly to her office and brought a second copy during our mediation session. Linda piff refused to discuss what was directly on the court order, stated she would write up a mediation order which she did not. Linda piff is not for a father, she took sides and did not have the child in the best interest. I paid the balance in full and have never received the mediation order, the office staff refuse to provide me any information on paper. Moral of the story, if your father don't go to Linda piff. If you want your child's best interest taking into consideration don't go to Linda piff

I was served divorce papers while I was away on business, even though my ex and I had agreed to use collaborative law to avoid extra fees and aggravation. Being upset and shocked by this, I reached out to a close friend who recommended Linda to me. Even though collaborative law was unfortunately taken off the table, Linda also had the expertise in traditional divorce law. I contacted her immediately and her kind staff quickly calmed me down and assured me that I was going to be okay. Linda worked diligently on my case. My ex’s attorney sent non stop threatening communications and not once did Linda let that effect our progress. The demands from my ex, especially with regards to alimony, were so overwhelming for me but Linda did a great job explaining the NJ law and helping me to understand how we could move forward in a way that would be fair. My divorce was finalized after 6 months which is so quick compared to the nightmares that I hear from other friends. The biggest thing I want to stress in this review is, not only Linda’s tremendous knowledge and her staff’s sense of urgency, but the kindness and support that I felt during the entire process. I would call the office crying and within minutes my mind was put at ease. I would get concerned about the future for my daughters and I and Linda and her staff would be my encouragement. I feel blessed to have been referred to Linda and am very grateful that I had her by my side.

I hired Linda for her assistance with my divorce after 21 yrs of marriage. Linda and her team are experts in the field of collaborative divorce, were always professional, courteous and responsive. Linda and her team made me feel comfortable and secure in an otherwise very uncomfortable and insecure environment. The outcome was to my expectations and I would highly recommend Linda and her team to anyone having to go through the unfortunate, life changing experience of a divorce.

Never expecting to ever get a divorce I found myself in this situation. Not knowing where to go I was recommended to call Linda Piff. This was the best choice I could of made. Though it was a horrible time in my life, Linda was always there for me and made me feel comfortable and strong through it all. Thank you Linda for helping me through this time in my life. You made a bad situation into a wonderful experience.

I can't say enough about this man very professional, very caring I sincerely wish I could give him 10 stars.. We all know that a lawyer can charge high fees however you get what you pay for. Mr. Nocks has been nothing but an exceptional lawyer. He leaves no rock unturned and is very good at what he does. If you want a lawyer that is going to do exceptional work, be completely caring -I sometimes think I am his only client, he cares that much. If you want and need a lawyer believe me you won't regret hiring Mr. Nocks. He is also a gentleman in that he treats the layman with respect, walks you through the exact process you will be going through and ensures that he will do his very best to ensure the judge gets the correct situation before a decision is made. I consider him a friend and I thank God he was directed to be my advocate in dealing with the justice system. Mr. Nocks I have told you this in our conversation now I put it in writing if there were more people in this world who could be half the person you are- we would definitely live in a better world. I will be sad when the case is over and hope we can remain in touch God bless you and your family. The Diaz family

I do not know if Richard will appreciate my comparison of him to a central theme in a Bronx Tale but the key word to remember is "accessibility". Knowing Richard is close by all of the time when needed is one my reasons for highly recommending him. There are many qualified attorneys, but none that I know with his level of competence and availability. I used Richard for two post divorce motions and he was always available to discuss any concerns I had with the issues. He represented me and my children with a fighting spirit not found in many attorneys. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law and willing to take the time to share that knowledge with his clients. He is patient to explain the pros and cons of any approach he recommends. He will not squander your money on frivolous claims. He is very conscientious about pursuing paths that will result in positive results and does not chase solutions down rabbit holes just to bill for the time or satisfy someones ego. He commits your money as if it is his own. In the end ,no one can predict the outcome of any case, given it is always subject to the opinions of a single Judge. With Richard you will be given the best path forward for any situation and you will know you were represented by the best person possible who is professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Richard Nocks.

Without hesitation I recommend Richard Nocks. He is an excellent attorney and a good man who came highly recommended to me. I was not disappointed! He guided me through one of the most challenging times of my life with a distinguished level of intelligence and dedication. He made me feel like he was a friend fighting for me!

Richard is an excellent lawyer who represented me. He is very professional and works to secure the best interest of his client at all times. After having consulted with many lawyers prior to meeting Richard, I am glad I selected Richard to handle my case. He successfully concluded my case in a timely manner. Richard came highly recommended and I would certainly recommend him. I wish him success !

Richard is a professional and caring attorney. He takes the time to actually listen to what his clients are saying, what their needs are and devises a strategic plan to make sure they are 100% satisfied. I have no hesitation recommending him to family, friends, or anyone else in need of a great attorney, who also has his clients best interest in mind.

A great law firm to work with. I have worked with them on a few different cases in several different areas of the law, and each and every time they have provided me with the great legal advice. I absolutely recommend Ansell Grimm &Aaron. Every person I have worked with in the firm is wonderfully helpful and just a pleasure to talk to, and they provide top-notch legal advice.

They seem to pick and choose whether they return phone calls. Not sure how they can make that decision without actually talking to someone but perhaps the other partners should know when one discriminates.

I've had two unfortunate situations where I needed legal representation. I sought the their help and was happy that I did. This is a quality group of lawyers. In my opinion, the best in the state. I can never thank them enough.

Not that I've had all that much experience with attorneys; but our first visit with Doug Davie left me knowing we would be well represented. Personable, involved, knowledgeable, understanding...the accolades could go on and on. Recommended without reservation!!

Immediate response and turn around time. Remarkable professionalism with the Ansell firm. I have personally worked with multiple lawyers in this law firm - Mitchell Ansell, Peter Grimm, Donna Maul, Michael Ansell and David Ansell. Whether Real Estate, Wills, Business law, Family law and/or Criminal law - this is the "go to" law firm. I have made dozens of recommendations to friends and colleagues.
