Mr. Balmer is representing me in a Family Court matter that is complicated and time consuming. All I can say is that I am impressed with his professionalism. Mr. Balmer has and continues to addressed and resolved issues that are 17 years old. He is most experienced in putting my mind to rest and giving me confidence that each matter is looked at carefully, assessed and ready for a resolution that is favorable to my case. I am very happy working with Mr. Balmer. Significantly, I chose to work with him having researched a number of other attorneys who claim to have much more experience. Sometimes it is not what is said....but the way it is said and the action behind it. Needless to say, I am happy with my choice.

Ellen Peppard is outstanding and unstoppable when in pursuit of justice for anyone she represents. In December Mrs Peppard went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me in a family court proceeding. Previously, I tried to find a good legal representation for almost a year but most attorneys were not really knowledgeable about family law and they were more interested in taking every penny I had before they would even think about assisting me for a DNA case which did not cost thousands of dollars. I paid for consultation with a criminal lawyer who claimed to be a family attorney. I'm a student in school and working hard to support myself but no attorney cared. I know attorneys have to earn money to support themselves also but they don't have to be greedy. I was ready to give up and accept any fate in my family court hearing. I only had a few days before I was to appear in court. During my final search for an attorney I met Mrs Peppard. She was prompt with returning my calls, she sent messages of updates, she treated me like a human being who deserved a fair, and just hearing. On my court date I showed up to court. I was nervous, emotional while waiting; Mrs Peppard stayed in communication to comfort me. I looked up to my right at the door and saw Mrs Peppard. She came to my side and went straight to work on my case. She was truly remarkable. Most importantly, Mrs Peppard gave me her word and fulfilled on her promise. She also teaches law so I was comfortable to know that I really had someone knowledgeable about family law who was on my side fighting for my rights.

Ellen is a very knowledgeable attorney with many years of experience. During the process of my case, she made me feel at ease. She answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns immediately. She was always prompt in responding to my calls or text messages and was always on time to our Court appearances. I would recommend Ellen to anyone looking for a straight-forward, hardworking attorney. She is excellent! Y. Smith

Corinne is great! She cares about her clients. Prices are very reasonable and she's willing to work with you. Each time I'm in Corinne's presence I feel better about my situation. Her personality can go from personable to professional in an instances notice. Although my divorce process did take much longer than expected the results were exactly what I wanted and more. I will defiantly recommend The Mullen Law Firm to my friends and family. Thank you Corinne and Kayla for your help!

I was recently arrested for DUI and received six summonses. I was originally looking at a year and a half license suspension, plus MAXIMUM fines!!! With the help of my attorney Corrinne and VERY capable paralegal Kayla, I had five of the six summonses dismissed, an $800.00 fine and my license suspended ONLY for three months!!! Needless to say, I was VERY SATISFIED with the outcome and I would GREATLY RECOMMEND their services to anyone needing capable litigation.

After years of trying to resolve a very difficult situation that led us through three different lawyers and depleted our savings, someone recommended Darryl L. Wynn Esq. At first we didn't have much hope with our prior experience but Mr. Wynn managed, through dedication and perseverance, to find the answer and now my husband, after waiting for 8 years, will be able to adjust his status and we can really begin to live our lives. Mr. Wynn has a 'never give up' attitude and will keep you sane when you are ready to give up. Don't hesitate to bring all your immigration needs to his office, from the simplest to the most intricate, he will find a way to solve your problem. He is very busy and may not be able to take your call on the spot, but will call you back, even at crazy hours, which only proves his dedication to his clients and his desire to get them the best results. We are living proof of that.

Mr. Wynn is one of the the nicest and sincere lawyers you would ever come across. From the very first minute we came to his office, he was so accommodating. He made sure we are very comfortable with the whole process of applications. My wife and I were filing for my Adjustment of Status and we had been looking for a good attorney who would make the process fast and flawless. That's exactly what we got working with Mr. Wynn. His office staff is equally experienced and nice. They handled our case so well and swiftly that we could not believe. He also took a personal interest in my case and he is always around to respond back to emails and phone calls. He follows up so well that we were totally amazed and carefree. I would highly recommend Mr. Wynn for anyone who needs quality advise and personal attention.

I felt like I was in really good hands with Richard handling my case. I particularly appreciated how he always responded to my emails without any delay and encouraged me to feel free to message him with any concerns that I might have had while we awaited for word from the judge. He was also very flexible with his time and went above and beyond when working around my now ex husband's very busy and limited schedule. Having him for a lawyer in a situation that I was completely unfamiliar with put me at considerable ease and I feel very fortunate.

My experience with Mrs. Marin has been outstanding!! She helped me tremendously with my post divorce issues. I had a number of lawyers throughout this process and she is the FIRST who really listened, who authentically cared, who gave it 100%. She always makes herself available when I needed to talk to her. She is also the FIRST who has not tried to take advantage of me monetarily; she is fair, honest and loyal! I trust her wholeheartedly, which is something I find rare! She is a gem of a lawyer!

I'm not sure where to start because I'd like to keep this concise yet explain just how valuable ToniAnn's services and expertise have been to me. ToniAnn helped me at a time in my life when I really needed her most, when my 6 & 7 year old boys lives were being endangered. I didn't know where to turn to or what to do. I Then I remembered I'd had ToniAnn's business card and I gave her a call. After working with her for a few weeks, ToniAnn returned the peace and sanity to my life. She also empowered me as a woman and a mother. For this I will always be grateful to her. It's funny because lawyers always get a bad rap. But for me, this particular lawyer changed my perspective a bit on how lawyers can actually help restore sanity and dignity to the human condition. I learned that not all lawyers are about picking off the bones of the weak. ToniAnn was truly interested in a positive outcome for me and my boys. And when that outcome arrived, she was happy for us all. ToniAnn didn't try to continue running up the bill. So I really appreciated her humanity, but was also wildly impressed by her strength and tenacity. I would be remiss if I did not mention that ToniAnn's knickname is The "PitBull". After working with her I understood why. She got the job done. So if you are in need of family legal counsel, look ToniAnn "The PitBull" Russo up. You will not be disappointed, I can assure you. I was beyond grateful for her services, and the final outcome.

True Professional. Mary Katherine Brown was my attorney for four years helping me to go through a difficult divorce with a stubborn and spiteful husband. She was assertive and knowledgeable, and always choosing the most cost-effective strategies. Mary Katherine was not someone who would be at my husband and his attorneys’ throat all the time. Our choice as a team was to be reasonable, firm and fair, and keep my child’s interests first. Whenever I felt stuck and helpless because of the opponent side’s pressure, Mary Katherine understood my concerns, listened to my ideas and helped to choose the optimal course of action. I feel that I am protected by the Settlement Agreement drafted by Mary Katherine.

Getting divorced is already stressful. Ms. Brown was extremely helpful and understanding. She really got it. There are so many factors in a divorce that can drive you nuts, but she really helped get me through it all and didn't just see me as a paycheck. I would recommend her to anyone who asked me for a divorce lawyer.

Excellent experience. Really great to have a lawyer with a bigger vision for resolving conflicts than most other lawyers. One that balances practical outcomes and ethical principles. One that asks me first and foremost, what my big-picture goal is and then devises, with me, the best legal approach to achieve it.

Bernard Rothman is the New York City Divorce Attorney that you see when you look up Divorce Lawyers in the Dictionary and it is his picture that I always see. What I mean by this is that Mr. Rothman is the consummate New York City Divorce Attorney. He is the one you want on your side to help you through this most stressful of times. He is honest as the day is long and will guide you through the tough decisions that go with getting a divorce. He looks out for you, your children and is their for you at every turn. I could not think of any one that I would like by my side during a divorce but Bernard Rothman. He has handled two divorces for me and without him I would have been toast. His wealth of experience and knowledge of what is important and what is emotional is what makes him a great Attorney. I can not say enough about this man and we have been friends as well for many many years. You could not make a better choice than having Bernard (Bernie) Rothman in your corner as he will protect you, your children and make the pain as small as possible but always being there for moral support. I would highly recommend Mr. Rothman for anyone who seeks, Separation, Divorce, Child Custody or Family Matters. You will never regret your choice, he is amazing. Steven M. Artsis
