I retained Loren based upon the recommendation of a family friend. She is an extremely professional and results oriented attorney with excellent negotiating skills. Loren is very understanding of the emotional toll that divorces take on her clients and was always very responsive and accessible when I needed to speak with her. She is very compassionate and always provided very sound advice and recommendations that were both cost effective and in the best interest of my family. Loren successfully negotiated a very fair divorce settlement, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. I am very thankful to Loren and her staff for their professionalism, and dedication.

I walked into Ms. LaForge’s office after firing a previously retained lawyer and was feeling very defeated about the prospect of being able to relocate with my son following my divorce. Ms. LaForge instantly put me at ease (she just has that type of demeanor) and assured me that even though it would be a fight, she was positive she could make it happen. And she did. Throughout multiple issues with my exes lawyer, extensions offered to the defendant by the judge, and even a pandemic, she remained steadfast and focused. She NEVER stopped working for me, making me feel as though I was her only client. Every step of the way was communicated and she navigated every hurdle with ease and professionalism. Ms. LaForge is kind, tough, knowledgeable, outspoken, and great at what she does. She is worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!

I retained Loren in my divorce from my husband of 17 years. Loren is amazing. She is compassionate, honest, knowledgeable, and tough. She was incredibly responsive at all hours, even late at night and weekends when issues arose with visitation and such. From the day I consulted with her, her no nonsense style is direct and honest. She informed me of my legal rights and what my son and I where entitled to and never stopped fighting for us. Going through such a life changing event it was wonderful having a strong and powerful ally in my corner. She always put my mind at ease that she was in control. She is top notch and I would recommend her highly to anyone in search of a Family Law attorney. Thank you Loren for everything!

I had the privilege of having Loren as my divorce lawyer through a very tough divorce. She was there for me every step of the way. Her friendship, loyalty, knowledge, no-nonsense style and ethics are of the highest standards. I never had to wait long for a response to any question or problem I had and even after my divorce was final I still need her services at times. It is comforting to know I always have her there for me for guidance. Loren is assertive, orally articulate, and has excellent communication skills. I highly recommend Loren!!!

Mrs. Loren LaForge is a top notch experienced lawyer who truly understands family law & knows how to leverage information to best support her client. She has a special place in her heart to support women and mothers. I hired Mrs. LaForge for a post divorce case against my ex husband who is a narcissist & his family who has deep pockets to fight endlessly and ongoing. Mrs. LaForge went to the batting field (she’s a shark!) for me and my children. Her background in psychology is a big bonus. I highly recommend her and would hire her again (hopefully not ????????) if needed.

I went to Peter when my marriage of 36 years was crumbling my wife had filed for divorce I was to say the least devastated I went to Peter after I had hired the wrong attorney for the divorce Prior to peter and things became a real mess . Peter was from the first day concerned and actually cared he showed tremendous human compassion throughout this whole mess he was not just an attorney to me he was a friend he listened and did not judge and if I had not had him in my life and as my attorney I truly don’t think I would have made it through it I was extremely painful as time went by my wife realized what a nasty mean and zero compassion of her attorney she had hired and realized peter was not the enemy nor was I we just drifted apart the whole time Peter encouraged my wife and I to talk he want us to have great communication not like her attorney trying to put us at odds constantly as time went on peter postponed the final divorce as I asked on several occasions as my wife was now broken shattered as I was she needed more time and peter gave us just that in the end my wife divorced although thanks to peter and his kind words and compassion became better friends than ever we still love and respect each other and all I can say is peter and his wonderful secretary deb were sensational I urge you before you make a mistake hire peter you won’t regret it and he was fair priced it was always a pleasure to pay him a Divorce can be one of the biggest things to face so please I urge you to do it with the best attorney friend and great human being on your side because there are no sides as I learned just a degree of loss with that being said thank you peter from the bottom of my heart and my prior wife feels the same way we will never forget the cad she hired and how peter saved us in so many ways again thanks Peter ????

I can't rave enough about The Law Offices of Peter Van Aulen. From my first initial contact with them I knew instantly that Peter was going to be an excellent lawyer for my case. Not only is he a fantastic lawyer, but he is very understanding, knows how to listen to his clients, and extract those details which make a big difference when dealing with difficult cases. Peter has a mind-set that few people do and I appreciate every effort he has made with my case. My case was very difficult and he was always right on with focus on the right attitude. He faithfully commits to get the job done accurately. I didn't know many law terms until he explained things so easily for me. He's not just some lawyer like many others out there who want to be quick with your case, he takes his time and explains everything before standing in front of a judge. He made me feel comfortable and had a willingness to do what it takes. I highly without a doubt recommend Peter and his team all the way!

Peter is an awesome attorney. First of all, before taking action, Peter would always explain to me the next step of action he was going to take & why he was doing it. He took the time to explain to me very well each & every step of the way so I understood what the ongoing process was & what to expect. There was some tough decisions to make, & very fortunately for me, he was correct every time. He is very confident & knows what he is doing. I am extremely satisfied with his work & will continue to use his services & recommend him to others.

Peter provided legal advice and guidance through a difficult situation. He is knowledgeable, experienced, responsive and understanding. Through my situation I felt I was in trustworthy hands which was a huge relief for me. Thank you Peter for helping me through such a trying time for me. I greatly appreciate it.

5+ Stars Excellent Service. After 7 years of efforts with other divorce lawyers, Peter Van Aulen accomplished what they could not. Extremely Professional and skilled Attorney. An Excellent Attorney and I Highly recommend him to all and anyone who seeks this line of legal representation.

Brad Micklin and Rachel Issacs both handled my child support emancipation and termination of alimony with the Court. They are strong advocates of Men's and Father's Rights. They work with you to achieve an equitable solution, developing strategies along the timeline, which are shared with the client. Their entire staff is very responsive and always acted courteously and professional. And even with restrictions due to COVID-19 restrictions their ability to conduct business remotely through various technology portals, should be commended. I would recommend their Law Group for an Family Court Legal issues or advice.

Didn't even get a chance to be represented because I accidentally missed my first online appt. When I called to apologize and ask to reschedule I was answered with, "If it happens again I won't get another chance". Thanks to Carmen, she should definitely not be the one answering potential client phone calls. Very unprofessional and obviously not the firm for me.

I felt compelled to write another review about Brad Micklin. As I was preparing to represent myself in court after getting screwed over and wasting a ton of money on an ineffective lawyer, i became nervous and overwhelmed, as any Novice would. I had a deadline to meet and for lack of better terms I needed someone to hold my hand and walk me though steps that i was uneducated about couldn't find on my own conducting independent research. Brad gave me advice days before my deadline. although this was helpful and I didn't want to bother him, i reached out to him one more time with time-sensitive matter i needed him to look over. However, he had to prepare for a case and didn't have the time to look over my last minute details (Which is completely understandable especially since i wasn't a paying client and he already went out on a limb and helped me several times thus far.) I woke up the next morning telling myself, F$%^ it, i'll send it as is, i did the best that i could. I looked in my e-mail and there was an e-mail from Brad. He informed me that he had a few moments to spare , he gave it a once over , went above and beyond of me asking for advice and edited the document i sent over and wished me Luck. All you single Dads who haven't gotten screwed over yet, I strongly encourage you to retain Brad. When i tell you he has your best interest at heart, he does. He turned down hiring me as a client, advised me to save my money and instructed me on how I could effectively get the result I wanted on my own. I will forever be Grateful.

Words can’t do justice to Brad Micklin and his team. My consultation was with Brad. I didn’t feel rushed, I didn’t feel pressured, I felt comfortable and most of all I felt like I had someone on my side for my daughters best interest. I worked with Rachel Isaacs as well and she was great. Everyone that I had any interaction with was very courteous and respectful. Everyone was knowledgeable and helped me through this difficult time. Brad made himself available to me at all hours. His wife Carmen is absolutely amazing and was extremely emotionally supportive. I appreciate everything that they have done for me and even now continuing to help me with the ongoing issues that come up with my daughters father. If I ever need a lawyer again, I will definitely use them!

I had never been in a courtroom before in my life until I was in need of a restraining order as a result of domestic violence. The best decision I made for myself was to hire Brad Micklin of the Micklin Law Group to represent me. You may notice that Brad usually represents men but in my case, as a woman, I felt secure and protected in court with Brad by my side. His style in court is very clever and strategic and he doesn't miss a thing. If the opposing side or even the judge says something questionable or inappropriate, Brad will catch it and call them out! He made sure the trial was fair and that my testimony was heard. The staff are very polite, responsive and professional. I always understood what was on my invoice and when payments were due. I pray that you, reader of this review, have happy and healthy relationship. But if you do ever need a family law attorney, I recommend that you call Brad.

Excellent and very caring. Wonderful and professional care to her clients. Would highly recommend to all.

Lucy Agostini was our lawyer during the sale of our house. She is reliable, efficient, and honest. Lucy communicated with my husband and I very well and made herself very available whenever we had questions throughout the process. She made great recommendations and steered us correctly the entire time. We highly recommend Lucy Agostini and her team!

Lucy Agostini is a very professional, skilled and compassionate attorney and I can not recommend her more highly! She was always on top of things and responded to any questions or concerns I had quickly. She handled my divorce, the sale of my house and the closing on my new home. I have recommended her to my friends and plan on using her anytime in the future when I need an attorney. Her staff is also wonderful.

A friend of mine recommended Ms. Agostini to me when I was looking for an attorney to handle my divorce. I had previously seen another attorney but didn’t feel comfortable with him at all. As soon as I met Ms. Agostini, however, I immediately felt that she was much more than just an attorney. She led me through the long and painful divorce process with patience, tact and kindness. Most importantly, of course, Ms. Agostini is an exceptionally skilled attorney. My divorce was complicated by the fact that I got married abroad, so she had to research the different legal aspects involved. She did it in a very thorough and complete manner, and that ended up being very helpful when my ex-husband's attorney came to court without having done much research at all. Ms. Agostini is also a very accomplished negotiator, and in her calm but determined way, she drives up her points one by one. She was able to get me a settlement which was more than I had expected when I first reached out to her. I highly and warmly recommend Ms. Agostini to anybody in needs of an attorney who is experienced, skilled, warm, caring and down to earth.

I have used Lucy exclusively for the last 15 years. Her level of professionalism is unmatched in matrimonial law, mediation and real estate. I have been very happy with her services and legal counsel. She left no stone unturned in securing the best outcome for me, involving divorce proceedings and mediation. She has handled real estate closings for us as well, with the same outstanding results. I can't thank her enough for her patience and diligence in every situation.

If I could give this group many more stars, I would. I have been represented by Ms Marcie Kuttner Werner through a very ugly divorce. Her solid knowledge paired with calm demeanor and excellent negotiating skills, have always made me know I will get all my rights. Even after signing a settlement, she has stayed responsive every time I reach out and is working hard to ensure all the details of the settlement are executed. The firm generally, is equally professional, responsive and their first priority remains to be helping their clients. THANK YOU

Aretsky Law Group (specifically Natalie Capano) did an excellent job helping me navigate through a complex divorce process. They kept it simple and low cost. I would recommend them highly.

Eric and his team are extremely knowledgeable, experienced and capable attorneys who made the process easy to navigate, understand and manageable. I highly recommend Aretsky Law Group

My experience with Eric as an attorney was genuinely pleasurable. Eric's expertise in litigation, and personable attributes made the litigation of my case go over with ease. Eric was always punctual and went above and beyond my expectations in getting my case settled. Eric operated openly with regards to communicating with me and was professional beyond a doubt. Eric's assistance with my litigations was priceless. I strongly recommend using Eric Aretski for any of your personal litigation needs. I am also certain that he would make an excellent and valuable addition to any law firm seeking a personable, professional, ambitious, and relaible attorney.

I had a very tough divorce case and Eric took control and made the best of a very difficult situaiton. I would highly recommend Eric Aretsky for any type of matirmonial litigation.

    If I could give this group many more stars, I would. I have been represented by Ms Marcie Kuttner Werner through a very ugly divorce. Her solid knowledge paired with calm demeanor and excellent negotiating skills, have always made me know I will get all my rights. Even after signing a settlement, she has stayed responsive every time I reach out and is working hard to ensure all the details of the settlement are executed. The firm generally, is equally professional, responsive and their first priority remains to be helping their clients. THANK YOU

    Aretsky Law Group (specifically Natalie Capano) did an excellent job helping me navigate through a complex divorce process. They kept it simple and low cost. I would recommend them highly.

    My experience with Eric as an attorney was genuinely pleasurable. Eric's expertise in litigation, and personable attributes made the litigation of my case go over with ease. Eric was always punctual and went above and beyond my expectations in getting my case settled. Eric operated openly with regards to communicating with me and was professional beyond a doubt. Eric's assistance with my litigations was priceless. I strongly recommend using Eric Aretski for any of your personal litigation needs. I am also certain that he would make an excellent and valuable addition to any law firm seeking a personable, professional, ambitious, and relaible attorney.

Mara is very nice and take care of my deepest concerns. I really appreciate her service.

I worked with Mara Dooskin and as soon as I hired her she did more for my case in 3 hours than a previous lawyer that I terminated did in 20 days. I highly recommend Mara and the Weinberger Law Group.

beware ,they talk a good talk to lure you in , once your in its about the money they really don't care about you .I had to create my own settlement because between my x and my lawyer ,i was broke . After the settlement which my weinberger lawyer read and said "i did a good Job " .I went to see a different lawyer and she said "i would have never let you submit this , you just shot yourself in the foot . After I was done with Weinberger they sent me a bill for another 10,000 , Beware they are nothing but sharks , they suppose to be representing you .

The old saying "you get what you pay for" couldn't be more true when dealing with this firm. My attorney (Carmela) is the managing partner in the Hackensack office. Due to that, the cost was a bit more. But worth every penny. She was tenacious, intelligent and most important patient. I know I was not an easy client. Especially being a lawyer myself. Not only was my attorney fantastic, but the whole.office was attentive and professional from the office manager Brian to the receptionist Tillie to the paralegal Denise. A truly great experience in a difficult time . I couldn't have asked for better.

I regret doing business with this law firm. VERY VERY VERY BAD experience. DO NOT do business with them!!!

I was represented by Seth Parker for my divorce. He did a fantastic job with what I asked him to do. He was always clear, calm and understanding. Seth was also reasonably priced. I give him five stars.

My experience with them was very positive. I would recommend this law group to anyone who needs a great divorce lawyer. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed in the service you will receive. I would especially like to recommend the lawyer who worked with me, Elisha McLaughlin, she was outstanding and worked tirelessly on my case until the very end. This is a great team..

Seth Parker Esq. recently represented me in a personal matter, and I could not be more happy with his work for me. He is a calm, thoughtful and competent professional, and worked diligently, and economically, to make my matter go smoothly and easily. I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of his services.

From my initial intake meeting through every action I've had nothing but positive experiences with the firm. Ms. Moskowitz was a pleasure to meet, but Genevieve was my representing counsel and she was respectful, very reasonable with billing, and a good partner on both strategy and specific actions. I came out trusting her opinions and advice, and would use her again without hesitation. Thank you!

Seth Parker was my attorney and handled my divorce with professionalism and expertise. He is incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and patient. I felt confident in court due to his counsel in addressing all of my concerns with care. Divorces are never pretty, but I’m very happy that I picked the best.

Helen and her team are amazing, I highly recommend her!!! Everyone is so helpful, patient and kind! Helen explained everything, helped me with making the best decision and explained why they're the best, always communicate with me and was always there.

We needed a post nuptial agreement before we were able to refi and Helen took the time to explain to me exactly what it entails and the steps her firm would take to complete the document. She was always an email away and was extremely helpful even when the refi team was having trouble knowing what legal terms they needed included. Efficient and knowledgeable. She even followed up a few weeks later to be sure everything worked out for us.

Helen is terrific. She has helped me a few times now and I would highly recommend her.

Helen is an amazing lawyer! From the initial consultation to the final signature, I felt confident and cared for by Helen. She is smart and savvy and excellent in the court room. She handles each and every case with intelligence and knowledge. I would recommend Helen without any reservations. She gets the job done!!

Terrible ! She didn’t even bother to actually even help me, after thoroughly explaining my case she turned me down with a b.s explanation. everything that came out of Erlina Perez’s mouth was just NEGATIVE, the only positive side of this was that it gave me a chance to find the lawyer I now have, who is more experienced! Thanks but NO thanks Erlina, spend your $$ else where on a lawyer who is actually professional and knowledgeable!

Erlina is one of the best top family lawyers that I can recommend. I've dealt with plenty of lawyers in the past and she's very understanding, very good listener and very persistent when it comes to following up with her clients. I love her professionalism and fast deliverance on any child support services. Back in June 2017 I was dealing with my daughters father not wanting to pay child support after 8 months of brake up. I've decided to contact Erlina in order to help me figure this situation out in terms of child support and child care support, I'm glad that every time we went to court she was very eager and firm on generalizing what's best for the child. She also make sure that the judge hears you , she's also good advising you with what to do and how to proceed in order for you to win the case. I'm very excited to announce that now my daughter's father is paying $202 A week which is being garnished directly from his employer for child support and child care and if it wasn't for Erlina I would of been struggling on making all decisions and child care payments on my daughter's behalf since the father is such unreliable person. I don't regret spending my last dime and savings on Erlina she's WORTH your time and money. Trust me !!!!

I am very satisfied with my lawyer, Erlina Perez. She was well informed and smart. She was also helpful and kind. I would recommend her!

The best lawyer that I have dealt with.

Before I start, If you’re looking for an aggressive attorney who will fight for you, look no further and hire Phil Petrullo. I have hired multiple attorneys in the past who just collected their cut and didn’t make my problem theirs. Phil Petrullo not only cared about my case but he also fought for me as if he was fighting for himself. He is knowledgeable and an aggressive attorney who will answer you promptly and also keep you up informed every step of the way. He reviewed before every hearing and was more than prepared. I never had to worry or question anything when being represented by Phil because he always made the best decision for me and protected me as his client in any way possible. He cares about his clients and cares about what he does and it shows. Thank you Phil! You really are amazing at what you do! Don’t hesitate and hire Phil Petrullo. You won’t regret it!!!!!

Mr. Petrullo, Toni and the whole staff at this law firm were hands down a great experience to work with. They were professional, responsive and knowledgeable about law and were very empathic towards my situation. I worked with Mr. Petrullo for the majority of my case and this was by far one of the best decisions I made. What a great experience. I would definitely recommend this firm,10 out 10! Thank you.

Highly recommend. This team walked me through the entire custody process and helped me get the best results possible. Mr. Petrullo is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and genuinely cares about his clients. I appreciated his honesty and would recommend them to anyone.

Phillip Petrullo is a miracle worker. He has saved my family twice now. He is such a great person, it’s like we are talking to a close friend or family member. He always quick to respond (to my 10000 emails) and provide advice. He is honest about everything and makes sure we are aware of all possible outcomes. But most importantly, he wins. We recommend his services to everyone we know.

This is just a fake practise.This is a unfair law firm who are billing me in thousands of dollars for not even one hearing.I had to tell them even before hearing that they stop working on my case because attorney doesn't lift the call and I had to call the receptionist and then I am being billed for calling receptionist in hundreds of dollars just for 2 phone calls and also they are charging me for going to another lawyer as well.I feel my information was also passed on to the opposite party.The attorney also threatened me that he would attend the hearing even after i mentioned to him i don't need his services.He said he will go to court and bill me for that to say he doesn't want to be my attorney.He didn't even listen to my case fully took it up and started billing.
