A few years ago, I was involved in a bitter custody battle with my ex-wife. Every time we went to court for one thing or another, my attorney at the time was unfocused and unprepared. Preliminary rulings always went against us. I was desperate. And then I found Lori. From that point onward, everything turned around 180 degrees. We began to win. And win. And ultimately we prevailed, and I retained equal custody of my precious daughter. If you want a lawyer who is organized, thorough, totally prepared, and willing to fight passionately for you, you can’t do better than Lori Shemtob. She is warm, friendly, and has a wonderfully responsive office staff. I love this lady and consider her a friend. Seriously.
Cynthia and Susan were so helpful through such a difficult time! I can’t thank them enough and will recommend them unreservedly! I know how fortunate I was in how things worked out for me. At our first meeting, Cynthia outlined how the process should go, we did what she said, and I avoided a lot of pitfalls. That was so huge and has helped me so much on embarking on the next chapter in my life. I am grateful for their hard work, thoughtfulness and diligence.
I cannot thank you enough for all your help during this very trying and emotional time in my life. I was wary about my rights as a father with my children and concerned about having enough time with them during the week and for holidays and breaks from school. Your help in hammering out a very detailed and fair custody agreement was appreciated more than you’ll ever know.
As a former Law Enforcement Officer, I’ve worked with many attorneys over the years. When I needed a hi-powered, professional attorney, I didn’t hesitate. I called Andrew Taylor at Shemtob Draganosky Taylor, and I am very happy I did.
Cynthia Weiss Stein was very helpful, kind, and wise while representing me in my divorce involving two special-needs kids. Cynthia’s practical knowledge of negotiation and the law helped me in a tense situation where my ex-husband did not want me to take the kids with me and then refused to pay any support. In court, Cynthia was highly knowledgeable, well-prepared, and, most importantly: extremely effective! My smartest decision in the whole mess was hiring Cynthia to advise me. I highly recommend Cynthia and Shemtob Draganosky Taylor to anyone thinking of getting divorced, particularly if kids are involved.
Divorce can be, and usually is, a brutal experience. Choosing the right attorney can make all the difference in the world from both a financial and emotional standpoint. Lori Shemtob and her associates were the perfect choice. Lori has the perfect demeanor to defuse any volatile situation. She kept a clear, calm mind when everyone else was at the boiling point. Lori was able to get my divorce done in a timely fashion despite daily attempts on the other side to drag it out for years. Most importantly, the settlement that she obtained was more than fair for all parties involved. I have already referred several people to her and will continue to do so. Quite simply, she’s the best!
I retained Cynthia Weiss Stein after my previous counsel had made a disaster of my divorce. By the time I hired Cynthia, I had been in litigation for nearly a decade. Cynthia’s single mission was clear from the time we first spoke; to cut through all the nonsense, and to end the process as quickly and simply as possible. Cynthia never lost focus of this, despite opposition from the other side, and at times myself. She understood the legal and emotional needs of myself and daughter through the process and kept us firmly grounded on the issues at hand. I can’t imagine divorce ever being easy on a family; and I can’t imagine where I would be in the process now if it wasn’t for Cynthia.
I was involved in a lengthy divorce that included a complicated division of assets, and support matters. Lori was extremely fair in her presentation of how the assets were to be divided, showing me the whole picture, not just “my” side. Throughout the process, her goal was to attempt to resolve issues, rather than involving the courts. This approach resulted in less attorney fees and court costs, plus it offered more control to me and my former husband in making difficult decisions.
In addition to excellent legal advice, Lori often provided sincere counsel of encouragement and hope during the “dark” times. She always replied to phone messages and emails promptly, and followed through in a timely manner when necessary.
