Tanis was incredible to work with. We had worked with another lawyer previously regarding immigration and custody for our son but she mishandled our case and actually had greatly damaged our chances for proper custody of our adopted son who was also fighting for his immigration status at the time.
Then we were introduced to Tanis by our new immigration lawyer in Freehold. She took our case, walked us through every detail, was up front and highly personable with us, informative and fought hard for us to get what we wanted and needed from the court system to ensure our son could move forward with his immigration case.
She was faced with many challenges from our case as things had not been done right the first time, but she did her due diligence and research, and stood her ground in court with us and was our voice. Standing in front of a judge is not an easy thing to do and Tanis made it a comfortable situation. Lawyers can often get a bad wrap and I admit I was very gun shy after the experience with our first lawyer on this case, but Tanis changed our whole perspective.
In the end we were able to help our son get his green card and we now have full custody of him and he is able to live his life free of fear. Months later when we got the news Tanis was the first person we contacted to let her know her work had paid off.
I would highly recommend Tanis as someone who cares deeply about her clients and their rights, is patient and thorough, caring, responsive, and someone with a high degree of integrity and trustworthiness. You won't go wrong having her on your side.

Tanis helped us with the closing on our first home and she provided fantastic service. She always calmly and carefully answered our questions, making sure we understood all the details. She was available as needed, personable, and provided straightforward counsel. She pointed out important details and made the process easier. Tanis has an excellent understanding of the behind the scenes psychology involved in home buying. She gave us several tips that helped us negotiate a better deal. With Tanis's experience and knowledge, we successfully and quickly closed on our first house. We would definitely hire Tanis again.

Tanis handled a complex Motion for Custody leading to qualification under the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. Tanis was easy to contact and made herself available whenever I had a question or concern. Her staff was proactive in every way, quickly sending me any required documents or materials. I was impressed by how quickly she processed our case and the personal interest she took in the matter. When the judge heard our case, it was obvious he respected her as a professional. I believe this helped us get a positive result.

Kept me well informed of what was going on with my divorce case BUT never had suggestions for me as to how to respond.
Very little actual advice given. She let the process work its way through on its own. This was very frustrating for me the consumer, the client.
I needed to do quite a bit of the research and fact finding on my own and create "questions" for her to make sense of my situation.
Affordable, but not so good.

As first time homeowners, Tanis really guided us through the whole process and we always knew we were in good hands. She helped us figure out what was important to ask for during negotiations and gave us practical advice. Our closing went quickly and smoothly thanks to Tanis and her very knowledgeable staff.
