I do not know where to begin to express my gratitude for Riordan Family law firm. Especially Amy. She is a person devoted to her work. She is very responsive and one of a kind. Before I came across Amy, I had already reached out to other law firms. I am happy to say I made a great decision in having Amy represent me. She took to the time to listen and carefully look at my case. She let me vent without judgement and let me express my feelings and where I was coming from. Whenever I had doubt or questions about my case whether it was child support or visitation rights, Amy was right there to answer and inform me of all pros and cons. no sugar coating anything. Amy is someone who is up front and you can definitely count on. She cares for the well being of her clients and will go that extra mile. If I were to ever need representation, I know exactly who I would call without hesitation. THANK YOU AMY for that you do!!!

This is my 2nd review for this firm because another thing was filed from the other side that had to be addressed. Amy and her team, in no short order, wiped the courtroom floor with the adversary's crocodile tears. Every single thing that was proposed from the other side was denied outright. In addition, Amy and her firm were able to successfully have attorney's fees awarded for the previous issue and awarded more now this most recent one this past week. Every case is different, but I can state without reservation that she and her team have been exceedingly successful defending my position and attacking on my behalf. Results. Period.

With this firm, you not only get technically sound advice, you get a trust advisor who will walk you through one of the most difficult times of your life. Supportive. Coaching. Focused. Fair and respectful. Years after, the feeling of gratitude is still present and I would refer anyone to seek Catherine and team for services.

Catherine Riordan is an exceptional lawyer. She helped me through a difficult case. She put me at ease as she was very knowledgeable and knew how to handle each obstacle as it arose. I strongly recommend Ms. Riordan.

Amy first represented us three years ago through a difficult legal battle that lasted almost a year. Then, when issues arose again this year, she was there to help us through. She always has not only our best interests in mind, but also the best interests of the kids. She is a straight shooter who tells it like it is and does not just tell you what you want to hear. Amy will be honest about your situation and openly explain all possible options so that you can make an educated decision on how you want to proceed with your process. She is responsive to all inquiries and thorough in her work. She does not fit the mold of a stereotypical lawyer who is just out to make money. She really cares and will work hard to get you a resolution as quickly as possible. Most importantly for us, she became our friend, always asking how we were doing (and genuinely caring about our answer, not just asking as a pleasantry) and loving on our babies over these past few years. We very highly recommend Amy ????

I engaged Tanya to resolve an alimony dispute. After using a number of different lawyers over the years, I feel I finally found a lawyer was focused on getting me the best result and was truly my advocate. She went above and beyond in pursuing my case and even moved it forward when I thought it was hopeless. Her knowledge of the law and ability to present a persuasive argument to the judge were impressive. I would highly recommend Tanya to anyone.

I retained Tanya to assist with a high conflict co-parenting situation. Tanya and her dedicated staff are highly professional, diligent, and effective. This firm has helped me acheive a level of peace in my life I hadn't had in many years. I highly recommend!

My experience with Helfand & Associates was very good and I can strongly recommend this firm to any person needing assistance with bankruptcy. I felt very nervous, and ashamed, to find myself needing these services. However, Ms. Helfand was reassuring and professional, and my case was handled smoothly. The fee that I was quoted up front was the total amount I paid. Ms. Helfand's associate who attended court with me was also a very personable and competent attorney who made me feel as comfortable as I could be in those circumstances. The support staff at Helfand are very helpful and followed up with me consistently throughout the process, keeping me on track.

I retained Tanya for my divorce which ended up being quite contentious. She was incredibly professional during a very difficult time and always provided a sound strategy. I used her until I moved out of state for our ongoing custody disputes.

Very responsive and personalized service. Always looking out for the best interest of their clients.

Highly professional law firm with an excellent attention to detail and quality when it came to preparing legal documents, etc. John Clancy and team are great. Their communication was great. They were personable and listened well to the issues at hand and provided fair, objective and practical advice on legal matters. Highly recommend if you need their services.

From: Joseph Spisak I highly recommend Paul Townsend and his team, they saw me through some crazy issues with my ex. They were very communicative, professional, and personable through the entire fiasco created by the ex. All issues were resolved in an acceptable way. Paul Townsend and his team were sincerely working to get the best outcome for me. I can not give them more than 5 stars here but they do deserve much more! Joe

Laurie Newmark is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. She truly believed in my case since the inception. She is extremely knowledgeable, sincere but most importantly she was a true advocate for my son. Laurie and her staff put their whole heart into my case and never gave up. The firm and staff are very professional and caring and showed continuous support. I highly recommend their services. Laurie I cannot thank you enough for bringing peace to my family. We are truly grateful for you!

I've had to the pleasure of working with Paul Townsend regarding multiple matters. The most important and pressing is being reunited with my child. Paul and his staff are knowledgeable, understanding, responsive and most importantly, human. He has treated myself, my family and the matter not as another docket number but as real people going through tough times. I'm positive you can hire any law firm or lawyer, but having someone who is truly on your side from every angle is why I have trust in Paul and his staff. If you are going through an unfortunate matter regarding family issues in the legal system, Paul has been there for me every step of the way and continues to do so.

TTN is absolutely an amazing team. Angela represented me, she is extremely professional and very patient to answer questions. Cindy, is very active and helpful throughout the process. I would recommend TTN to all/any going through unfortunate separation in their lives.

Too much to even write. Check out the reviews on YELP. Don’t use these guys. No attention to detail. They bill bill bill for every little thing including their poorly written emails. My attorney didn’t listen and was more concerned with his own nuptials than my divorce.

David and his staff made a very strenuous experience a bearable one. David guided me throughout my entire divorce process and was always available or returned my calls in a timely manner. David's knowledge and caring demeanor along side his attentive staff make a true professional firm.

Mr. Salvaggio is definitely the best attorney in Morristown. His expertise over the matrimonial matters and business ethics are truly commendable. He truly cares about his clients and their family in matrimonial matters regardless of his own fee. I have a great respect for Mr. Salvaggio. We need more lawyers like him.

David and his staff did a fantastic job taking a nerve wracking experience and guiding me through all the bits and pieces. Even after my divorce was finalized, they helped me years later when another issue came up that was causing me a lot of confusion. If you want a good team to help get you the best settlement possible, this is the place to go.

Helpful and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable and confident that we would be in good hands.

Denise helped me through my divorce and listened to me carefully. She always looked out for my best interest and explained things to me with great patience. I was on a budget and she really did her best to accommodate. I recommend her highly!

Every negative belief you have about lawyers will go right out the door the first time you meet Denise. I met her at the lowest point in my life and she helped me navigate and put the pieces back together and come out a whole person. I can not say enough good things here. If you are clueless where to start the divorce process and you want someone kind and compassionate to walk you through it then call Wennogle Law and ask for Denise!

Wennogle Law, LLC was the most wonderful experience during a hard time. Mrs. Wennogle, Denise, is kind, caring, professional and will always tell you what you need to hear about the situation. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of counsel for divorce or family needs. Excellent!

I had a great experience with Mrs Wennogle. As a single dad, its very hard to win a custody case, but with her I won. I have custody of my son and could not be more thankful. It was Mrs Wennogles knowledge of family law, combined with her excellent presence before the judge that won this case. I highly recommend her if you want a competent and knowledgeable lawyer.

I have been working with Mrs. Wennogle for almost two years now and can say, without any hesitation, that she has been professional, honest and completely realistic about the ups and downs of my ongoing custody battle. I trust her opinion and I know that she has my daughter's best interest and well being at the forefront of every decision she makes. This process is never clean or straight forward, and it's not about winning, no matter what your motives or goals are. Mrs. Wennogle has never wavered and continues to look out for me and my daughter--even financially--throughout this unfortunate, but necessary, process. I would recommend her, and have, to anyone who finds themselves in a struggle of this nature.

To sum up the experience, see timeline below: Scheduled an appoint 3 days ago==>Never received a call at that scheduled time==>Called the firm 15 minutes later ==>Put on hold for 5 minutes==transferred to "Julie"?==>Explained to Julie that I requested/expected to consult with Tanya==Transferred back to secretary, who tells me that Tanya is not available for a call for another 2 weeks!!==>Decided to recuse myself to seek other counsel This is not good business practice. Why does is feel like I had to chase or that I am an inconvenience when seeking your services? Attorneys are high ticket service providers yet they act like they are doing you a favor. What really made me decide to write this post was the fact that her secretary Janae had the audacity to tell me that I should've been specific that I wanted to speak with Tanya (even though I reached out to Tanya through her website and reiterated to Janae that I was calling to consult with Tanya). Overall: I would give no stars for lack of accountability, professionalism, and consideration of my time.

Tanya and her team are AMAZING! My first Attorney was a disaster and I thought I'd lose everything in my divorce. Once Tanya took over my case, I always knew were we in the process and it was handled with such professionalism. Best of all, I didn't lose everything at the end of the day! Thank you Tanya!

I was down and depressed!feeling hopeless until I spoke to Tanya she is so amazing and a caring wonderful person.She took the time out to guide me threw the proper steps to further push the issue in getting me help to start my process.When the time comes for me to proceed with my process she will definitely be the one representing me.I have chosen the right Woman to help me,And you should chose her as well you will not be disappointed ........ Thanks soooooooo much Tanya

Tanya was just as advertised, she was smart, attentive, aggressive in court and her staff was very friendly. She is very expensive but I thought the fee was more than worth it and I received what I paid for. I hope not to be in family court again but if I am, I will want Tanya by my side.

So happy I hired Tanya and her team. My husband’s attorney was extremely aggressive, he was having an affair and I feared he was hiding assets.  Tanya put my mind at ease and walked me through the process every step of the way.  We uncovered money I didn’t know about and she and her team secured my financial future so I can move on past my divorce.  They were responsive, competent, and aggressive when it counted.  I am forever grateful

I highly recommend Ruvolo & Ruvolo Law Group. Melissa and her team were excellent in bringing my crazy divorce to a favorable conclusion. She accomplished exactly what she said she would do and was patient and understanding of all my concerns. Melissa is a strategic thinker and was able to predict my adversary’s next move. It was a pleasure to work with her and her team throughout my divorce. She was always on top of everything and is very knowledgeable regarding matrimonial and family law. Ruvolo & Ruvolo Law Group will always be my attorneys. In the end, you will never be disappointed.

Both Laura and Melissa are fantastic. They were consultative and genuinely supportive through the entire process. It was important to me that I had an amicable divorce. Laura and Melissa always made sure I was aware of my options and let me and my ex-husband make the decisions. Their expertise, advice and willingness to listen helped make sure that our divorce wasn’t a horrible scarring event for us and our children. They were very responsive and made sure the ball was always rolling – helping us navigate the process relatively quickly and seamlessly. It’s been a few months since the divorce was final and everyone in the family has adapted very well - better than ever expected. Prior to my experience I thought divorce was inherently difficult, lengthy, expensive and emotionally crushing. Thanks to all the folks at Ruvolo Law, it wasn’t that way at all.

Family Law deals most often with divorce. It's obviously not a field enveloped with a positive vibe as heart-broken clients sort out their fears, sorrow, hostility, and anxiety. But Ruvolo Law Group was able to recognize these emotions, allow me to experience them, and then keep me moving forward with my head up. They helped me see that, with children involved, divorce isn't really the end; the marriage may be over but the relationship must continue to be grounded in respect for the sake of the children. Michelle and Melissa (and the super-friendly assistant, Kristin) worked together on my case and they got me through some very difficult times. They supported me when I needed it, gave me strength when I had none, and kept my eyes open to the bigger picture. In the end, I feel that my children are in a better place because of how Ruvolo Law handled me and my case. I can't thank them enough.

The attorneys at Ruvolo Law are professional, competent, compassionate, and practical. Laura and Melissa are both moms with young children, and they are down to earth and easy to talk to. The support staff is equally professional and attentive to detail. For anyone who is in search of a Family Law Attorney, the professionals at Ruvolo Law are wonderful. I highly recommend this Family Law Practice.

I could not have dreamt up a better lawyer than Melissa. With any divorce there is a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the process, but Melissa made it so, that when I was talking to her about my assets and my future, there was not a speck of stress worry, or doubt. She truly understands what you are going through and works relentlessly to see that her clients get all that they deserve. I don't know how she does it, but even with multiple clients, she sees to it that she puts just as much time and effort in every single one. And she doesn't just go by the book and say we have to do this this and this, but instead takes the time to get to know you, understand your personal situation, and figure out the best way to get you exactly what you are entitled to. Although I hope I won't have to call on her again, if I did, I know I would be in the best of hands. There aren't enough words to thank you, Melissa, for all that you have done for me except to boast about your amazing job to all who may need you. Hire this Wonderwoman ASAP! Trust me, you will not regret it.

    I highly recommend Ruvolo & Ruvolo Law Group. Melissa and her team were excellent in bringing my crazy divorce to a favorable conclusion. She accomplished exactly what she said she would do and was patient and understanding of all my concerns. Melissa is a strategic thinker and was able to predict my adversary’s next move. It was a pleasure to work with her and her team throughout my divorce. She was always on top of everything and is very knowledgeable regarding matrimonial and family law. Ruvolo & Ruvolo Law Group will always be my attorneys. In the end, you will never be disappointed.

What a great experience from the first call to the office of Jacobs Berger to the final outcome. Thanks, Holly Friedland for managing this situation seamlessly as always! She is not only great at what she does but has compassionate professionalism in difficult emotional situations. It is refreshing to have a lawyer that assesses, finds a solution and then gets it done without wasted unnecessary time or money.

Jacobs Berger is an excellent firm with a professional and responsive team. Amy Miller, Esq. personally, quickly, and thoughtfully responded to all of my questions and concerns, showing she makes her clients a top priority. When you need answers during a stressful time, when you need to be confident you are making an informed choice, you can rely on Jacobs Berger to help you through important family decisions.

Divorces are complex and costly, even under ideal circumstances and clients need representation to navigate the law while in an emotional charged situation.  As their client I found the firm of Jacobs Berger to be knowledgeable, pragmatic and responsive.  The firm's operations make full use of technology to deliver top notch legal services in a timely and above all cost effective manner, never leaving the client in the dark or left to follow up.  I highly recommend.

If one ever finds themselves in need of a family lawyer, Jacobs Berger is the firm to call. I cannot thank Sarah enough for the professionalism and compassion with which she handled my case. Sarah and her team were always responsive and made the time necessary to work through the issues presented in my extremely contentious divorce, including custody and finances. They were also as sensitive as possible to the bottom line, without cutting a single corner. I am a lawyer with over 20 years of litigation experience and, objectively, there were many aspects of my case that went far outside the lines of normal court proceedings. Sarah met that challenge head-on, and managed to remain a steady, professional presence, bringing things back on track when they had gone sideways. Sarah, Jamie and Amy always took the time to explain every step of the process and the pros and cons of choices I would have to make, and were never dismissive of questions or ideas that I proposed. In the end, thanks to Sarah’s efforts, my case was resolved in a way that my kids are safe and my family’s financial needs are met. I highly recommend Jacobs Berger for anyone who needs a family lawyer in New Jersey.

We hired Jacobs and Berger to legally adopt my step-son and we couldn't be happier. Amanda was amazing and got us all the results we could have hoped for. Our family is now officially complete and we all share the same last name. Please note that this wasn't an easy task because this was completed during the peak of covid, however, Amanda delivered and we completed the adoption proceedings via Zoom. Awesome firm and awesome staff. We would highly recommend this firm.

    I had a child custody case to resolve, and Raquel Vallejo provided excellent counsel to a favorable judgment for me. In fact, even the judge complimented Raquel on the thorough brief provided that made the case so much easier for him to process, research and provide a favorable judgment on.

    Dianna Cavaliere was an amazing lawyer who became my greatest advocate from the very first day we met and continued on through what can best be described as an extremely difficult divorce which found us litigating through some very complex issues.Dianna was my rock and in the end she helped my family resolve our issues after 3 long years.I cannot post this review without also recognizing Dianna’s legal assistant Cynthia Reeves whom acted equally as my advocate and made herself available whenever I had questions or concerns.

    This office is burning your money. Everything is money. I have this office to do my simple divorce case we just need to sign that’s. It changed over $5000. Unbelievable. This is my mistake to choose this office.

    Samantha was professional and knowledgeable. Great team at the Weinberger Law group!

    I cannot express my level of Gratitude to Bari, her colleagues and this FIRM! A level of professionalism which I rarely see these days in business. Passionate, empathetic and a level of knowledge of New Jersey Divorce Case Law that catapulted my cause. I was completely shaken, broken and destined to lose so much regarding my child custody situation. I just thought I hit a dead end. I was referred to Bari and from the moment we first talked I was completely transformed. Her ability to break my case down into a means I could completely understand and then lay out paths of options which we could choose to take TOGETHER gave me incredible confidence, relaxation and faith. I was able to continue with my daily life knowing that this part of it was completely in good hands. In preparation for trial I was 100 percent involved and in "the loop." During the trial I had complete confidence I was being represented with my and my children's best interest in her and her firms heart at all times. I experienced resounding results and this has changed my life. I cannot thank Bari and her staff enough. And in such, I cannot recommend them at any higher level.
