    • I do not recommend Howard Mendelson.
    • I hired Howard 1-3 years ago.
    • Howard handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    He states he is in the business to help your children but truly in the business for money for himself! I had to deal with 2 other attorneys during process from his office because he was too busy. He persuades you in to taking deals that aren't beneficial to your children and yourself. My advise would be to seek someone else. After the entire horrible divorce process, then he charges interest on balance! Now as a single parent, paying the balance alone was bad enough now interest too! He is so insensitive to his clients situation. Divorce is a horrible experience alone and just made worse by struggling through it with this attorney.

  2. He makes you think you are getting a great deal when you are not!

    • I do not recommend Howard Mendelson.
    • I hired Howard more than 3 years ago.
    • Howard handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Mendelson does not explain to you that depositions, interrogatories, and countlesss meetings and gathering of information that he does is totally useless unless you go to trial. He assures you that by going to trial you probably will not do as well as the "deal" he got you. As the time your divorce hearing draws near he dissuades you from going to trial by explaining that the cost of going to trial will be an additional $50,000. My bill was $65,000 without a trial. He charges interest on your unpaid balance even if you are making payments every month. I paid him a minimum of $1,000 per month and he ended up collecting over $5000.
