Ms. Helfand was very professional and helpful with our bankruptcy case. Her advice was very useful and helped us make the proper decisions for our situation. In addition, she was very supportive during a very difficult time for us. Finally, she set very specific fee expectations and there were no surprises when it was completed. I would use her services again and would recommend her, without question.

Ms. Helfand strategized & processed, both, my Divorce & Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. As both cases were emotionally and legally challenging, Ms. Helfand proved to be an empowering Mentor along the path to clarity for which I am truly grateful.
I highly recommend her legal expertise to anyone who is seeking a confident, savvy & caring attorney to become at peace with self and any legal matters.

Tanya and her staff provided a level of expertise, advisement and services that were above my expectations. She was honest and forthcoming even when it was not what I wanted to hear. The office staff and other attorneys were all professional and responsive.

I worked with Tanya and her associates to resolve a billing dispute I had with a physician. They answered all my questions, researched my options, negotiated on my behalf and worked through a negotiation that was amicable. Tanya and her staff were very professional and pleasant to deal with. My only wish was that I had contacted Tanya earlier with my issue to save myself the stress!

We found Tanya when our lawyer kept missing appointments and would not return phone calls.
She was very responsive and uderstanding and she provided outstanding service at a reasonable price.

I would highly recommend Tanya and her firm for legal representation in divorce matters. Tanya exhibits compassion and concern during what is a tumultuous time and she remains steadfast in her desire to achieve the best outcome for her client. Her honesty and trustworthiness combined with her knowledge of divorce law is what propels her beyond the "average" divorce attorney. Should the need arise again, I would contact her immediately for legal consultation.

I went through two attorneys in over a year trying to get a divorce in a somewhat complicated situation involving someone institutionalized in New Jersey. Though we were originally married in New York, when I realized that the NY judge was unable or unwilling to help with the matter, I decided to see about pursuing the matter in NJ. Tanya and her team spoke with me initially, then took on the research of my situation to see if it looked like they could help. A divorce that looked to me like it would never happen was finalized in months. The team was very communicative, straightforward, knowledgeable and professional during the entire process. Additionally, when it came time to meet with the judge, the judge knew and respected my attorney. Their rapport certainly went a long way in helping the finalization of the divorce that day. I would highly recommend this group.

I recently went through the divorce process over a very difficult 2 year period. Without question it was the most difficult and trying times of my life emotionally, physically and of course financially. You spend years building up a life and family together with a person and then the divorce process requires you to pull it all apart and somehow divide it equally. It's a huge understatement to say it's a daunting task which is realistically not all that feasible without going through a lot of emotional peaks and valleys. I hired Tanya Helfand from the Helfand Group after working with another lawyer for approximately 6 months. I was dissatisfied with my previous lawyer because I didn't feel like he and I connected on what we were looking to accomplish. Ms. Helfand was very good at quickly getting up to speed on my case and guiding me through the entire divorce process. Throughout, Ms. Helfand helped keep me balanced and grounded to focus on the outcomes and trying to remove the emotion from the process as much as possible. She had no issue with telling me when she thought I was being unreasonable and helped me understand the options and alternatives I was faced with across all various areas, including financial assets, property, IRA's, and most importantly custody of our children. Ms. Helfand helped ensure that the interests of our children always kept in high consideration. Although I may not have appreciated her as much at the time, because it was such a painful process, I truly appreciate having Ms. Helfand and her team as my lawyers. I feel like I had a partner who worked to understand what was important for me and my children both short and long term and helped us arrive at a place where we could start the next chapter in our lives.

Tanya along with her assistant were knowledgeable regarding the steps of the process. Tanya along with her assistant Ann Marie reminded me that sometimes people go through tough financial times and that I was not an idiot for being in the situation that I was in. The office staff made all necessary photocopies so basically my legal fees included everything.

Ms. Helfand received a worried client and a small case and treated both of them with dignity and considered all my issues as her number one priority. She handled my paperwork and all our meetings with compassion and a professionalism that made my situation easier to comprehend and handle. I would definitely ask upon her service again and will refer Ms. Helfand and her staff to all that need an experienced lawyer. Do not hesitate to call upon her expertise in all aspects of law.

I was very happy with the way they handled my divorce. Tanya was very patient and explained everything clearly. Tanya knew my financial situation and worked with me to come to a quick resolution. Her office staff was very courteous and professional and left messages for Tanya who returned calls in a timely manner if they could not help me themselves.
