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 met with Victoria Paone to discuss the services her practice provides. Victoria's approach was unique and strategic. Her insight on different types of family law showed her passion for her clients. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for advice. I meet with many attorneys as part of my business but I felt so strongly that I wanted to share my thoughts on this firm and Victoria specifically.

Determined, caring, and knowledgeable is how I would describe Torie Paone. She is a relentless fighter for her clients and does so without the need for recognition. She truly cares about providing the best result possible to her clients. Lastly, Torie has spent the extra time to be a master of her craft. We have worked together for over five years and Torie has always been consistent. Based on my personal experience, I can, wholeheartedly, recommend Tori Paone to be your matrimonial attorney.

Great, smooth experience. Very responsive and helpful

Megan handled my case to terminate alimony payments. This was handled successfully in a timely and professional manner exceeding my expectations. I highly recommend this firm and in particular Megan to handle any matters relating to divorce and support. I selected them because they were highly reviewed and they didn't disappoint.

I would highly recommend Cassie Murphy. I was very impressed with the care she took in helping me. I felt she listened and showed compassion and understanding when dealing with a difficult situation. Ms. Murphy is extremely knowledgeable and presented options which assisted me in my endeavors. If I am in need of a lawyer in the future, I would not hesitate to hire her again.

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.

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.

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!

I interviewed the top Family Law attorneys in Central and Northern New Jersey before retaining the services of Sylvia Costantio and her Firm. The top attorneys that I met with could not hold a candle next to Sylvia. Her professionalism, compassion and attention to detail is superior to anyone is the industry. What set Sylvia apart is that she knows NJ Family Law and is relentless in providing and securing the best outcome for her clients and their families.

Sylvia helped me navigate the most challenging chapter of my life to date by listening and understanding my desired outcome. From beginning to end, she upheld my priorities and knew what I valued most and ultimately she succeeded. She is so knowledgeable and thorough. She never missed a beat. Sylvia and her team are incredibly punctual, responsive and thorough. They truly care about the clients they take on, and that is so apparent in their communication and guidance. I found Sylvia to be meticulous with details. She went to great lengths to protect me and fight for what is fair and right. I would trust her over and over again, and if you’re considering filing for divorce I would not consider working with anyone else. Sylvia is outstanding. The absolute best! I had an attorney handling my divorce prior to Sylvia, and there is no comparing the attention to detail and investment from one attorney to the next. I am certain the outcome of my divorce was what it was because of Sylvia’s representation. Had I continued along with the previous attorney, I would have had an entirely different outcome and one that I am sure would not have benefitted me, nor my daughter. The attorney you choose will ultimately determine the path of your divorce. I can say with complete confidence that Sylvia will be the best representation you can find. Hiring her was the best decision I made, and I will be eternally grateful for her counsel, support and strength!

Highly recommend great lawyer Price is good service is amazing

Sylvia and all the girls were so great! My divorce was such a disaster on my husbands part, and Sylvia stayed on top of all the craziness he threw my way, in the end I am so happy with the final divorce settlement and I could not have done it without Sylvia and the girls.

Simply put, not professional. Was embarrassed by her representation. Too costly for poor quality.

I called Brian with my case about a family matter. I am a law abiding citizen with little faith in our justice system. As , I feel you are more guilty till proven innocent, than the way it is actually said in reality. Brian took the time out from the first phone call to understand my case. When I thought of something during the wait for trial, he always was there to give an ear . As I was nervous at trial , Brian made me feel comfortable and relaxed while awaiting our ZOOM case to start. Brian took control and got my case dismissed on the first day . I applaud and thank Brian and his office for handling this matter and I am happy with the end results ! I would recommend Brian and his office to anyone that wants a lawyer that actually listens, is there for you and gets the job done !

Michael Wenning worked endlessly for almost a year straight on my trial! It was Criminal Matter/DV/RO/ Custody Matter! Michael Answered every phone call i made. Michael Strategic way of this matter was focus on my children and what mattered most was the Best interest of the children. My situation was difficult one. 2 Violations on Ro/ and final Ro pending with custody battle. Michael showed true talent because after 6 hour trial, 3 day back and forth He made sure he provided me exactly what I was searching for and proved to the Court the truth and providing customer satifaction i am writing this full matter because there are people in my situation that feel there is no hope! Mike gave me hope and as calm as he is, his knowledge of factual evidence and cross examination was handled with true talent and after year fighting he got Me my babies back thank you Michael! And Brian Winters is in my eye also true lawyer his Knowledge and skills these two lawyers do not back down they stand by what they feel is nessary For handling each situation! True Super lawyer Michael Wenning and Brian Winters have stood by me and always delivered. Thank you!

Anything but Dry I have often heard it said that in order to be a lawyer one needs to be stern and have a dry personality. I can honestly say this is the farthest thing from the truth after working with Amy Harris. I tried to represent myself when I initiated a divorce process a few years ago. Due to my lack of legal knowledge, I was unsuccessful. After realizing this was something I could not do on my own, I went in search of a lawyer that would be a good fit for me. I called thirty lawyers before choosing one to work with. All the lawyers I talked with on the phone were not friendly and even worse then that, they had bone dry personalities. Amy Harris was the only lawyer that agreed to talk with me on the phone, when I let her know how difficult it would be to come meet in person, due to child care issues. I knew right away after talking with her that I had found the perfect fit for me. Amy has been an absolute joy to work with and to be around. She is compassionate, organized, and has a stellar sense of humor. Lawyers can get a bad rep. People think they are only in it for the money. While I have only worked with one lawyer in my life thus far I have come to a different conclusion. Lawyers can see the end when we can’t. For that very reason they are able to offer sincere encouragement and support when one feels like all hope is lost. Not only can they see the end, they are the ones who create the roadmap to arrive there. Amy navigated this map flawlessly. I really experienced a true tragedy in my life that lead up to my divorce. I was blindsided, and felt as though the rug was pulled out from under me. I was an emotional wreck, knowing that I had Amy advocating for me brought me some peace of mind, and a strong sense of relief. Here I am today, a divorced woman, something that I thought was unattainable. While I am thrilled that I am divorced, part of me was sad today that I wouldn’t be communicating with Amy anymore. Perhaps this sounds odd, but I was able to be open and honest with her, and this has been a hard part of my healing journey. It’s been hard feeling like I could not be open with anyone about my situation and how it made me feel. Amy validated how I felt, and that meant a lot to me. When I look back on this painful time in my life, I will always genuinely be grateful to Amy and her assistant Jennifer. Thankful for their wisdom, and that they treated me with kindness. It was always evident to me that they were dedicated to my case and to my cause. I still have a long road ahead of me as far as my healing journey goes. Amy helped me to feel farther along in that journey then I ever have. Thank you Amy, for allowing me to step into this new stage of life. If it was not for you, and all your hard work, I would never be free to fall in love again, and that’s the greatest gift that there is. Thanks to you I am more free today then I have ever been. Free to put myself out there, free to meet new people, free to swim in the ocean with my clothes on, causing me to be anything but dry.

They only care about the money. Very poor service with Nancy(Secretary). Before they take your case they were friendly but after that they don't answer the calls they said that they going to call you back and never did. PLEASE DO NOT GO THERE!!!!

Michael Wenning is a great attorney, really personable.
